A good user-based pool will publish the amount of LKY each block yielded, and this can be verified in the block chain explorer.

Whoopee, you can verify that it mined a block that it admitted mining. That wasn't my question.

Quote
And in a P2Pool the minted coins are sent directly to your wallet in proportion to your share rate, so if a large block is found you get whatever percent of it you would normally get with a small block.

This is why I asked if people are mostly using p2pool nowadays. The bonus blocks are very convenient for pool operators to forget that they mined.

Again, you can verify the amount of LKY minted with each block to see if your pool operator is being honest. There are many other, easier ways a pool operator can rip off miners, not just with LKY but any coin. This is why its always important to join a pool you trust.

How does this prove that a pool mined a lucky block and did not tell anyone?

Are you brain damaged?

No, but my understanding of pool mechanics is probably higher than yours.

Quote
1. Pool mines a block.

And if that block is lucky, operator does not award anything and continues on as if the pool has not mined a block. The incentive to do this with a lucky block is incredibly high because the odds of being found out when only doing this on a rare occasion are low. Unless pool systems have advanced to where each miner now has a piece of proof in the block, like p2pool. If they have not and still operate under the same conditions as pools have in the past, then a pool operator can get away with a huge payout with his worker bees none the wiser. But I don't keep up with pool technology because I couldn't care less about it, so it is possible that pools operate differently nowadays. So I raised the question as to whether or not this vulnerability with pools has been fixed, because luckycoin makes it very ripe for the exploitation if not.

look at this p2pool
http://p2p.sytes.net:19335/static/

it publishes what is the block size and who gets what, no confusions there.

Etlase2 I see what you are saying, but it just wouldn't work. When you're mining for a normal pool, you're trying to mint a block with the pool operators wallet address, so all blocks any miner in that pool produces will have coins sent to that address. If you really feel that you're being cheated, again you can use the block chain explorer to search all published blocks with coins being sent to the pool operator's wallet. The pool operator can't just change the wallet address last second then publish it, as that would change the block hash. Secondly, this could happen with ANY coin. In fact, one would think a LTC or BTC pool operator would be more inclined to do so as a published block is worth $150 and $3250 respectively.

Again, that is p2pool, and since everybody still isn't using p2pools for whatever reasons, there must be some benefit to not using p2pool.


Etlase2 I see what you are saying, but it just wouldn't work. When you're mining for a normal pool, you're trying to mint a block with the pool operators wallet address,

http://bitcoin.stackexchange.com/questions/10687/what-prevents-a-pool-miner-from-stealing-an-entire-block?lq=1

See the first answer. "To sum up - a miner does not know the coinbase transaction, nor can it change the block without invalidating it."

The miner who finds the winning hash will know that he found it, but he has no way of proving that the pool did anything malicious, and it could be considered fud.

Quote

Yes it can, but as I have stated twice now, the incentive is significantly higher to do this only for a lucky block.

Only p2pool you see clearly how the payout is done. Other pools you can only take a guess.

No, this pool is very good because you can the rewards of each block.
