hey guys,

i am mining with 300 Mhash/s and i was wondering what you think would be the best payment mode for me, especially after the difficulty increase what do you think is more profitable with a relatively low hashrate like mine now?

thanks!

thanks for any donations Smiley

Pay per share has a 10% fee and isn't affected by luck.
Proportional has a 3% fee and is affected by luck.

The only way Pay per share will be more profitable for anyone is if the pool is unlucky for a sustained period of time.  It could happen, but we can't predict it any more than you can.

On most other pools you'll get 3-10% more on average, so my vote would be for neither... Wink

PPS is consistant, and often in the short term pays higher.

Prop is variable, but in the longer term pays better.

If you have linux/mac you can see what the short term looks like by cutting and pasting the right column of your account screen into a text file.



And then running the following Perl snippet at the command line

Code:
perl -e 'foreach(<>) { next if $_ !~ /\//; next if $_ =~ /s/;chomp $_; ($shares,$round) = split(/ \/ /,$_); $t += $shares; $r += $round; $a++;print "$shares - $round - $a $t $r\n";}  print "PPS: " . $t * 0.00003262705594458 . "\n"; print "Prop: " . $t / $r * (50*$a*.97);print "\n$a"' < THEFILEYOUPASTEDINTO
( yes, this is dirty... you could golf it into a much smaller string )

You get a result like:

652 - 1777330 - 1 652 1777330
237 - 668290 - 2 889 2445620

1395 - 3762791 - 4 4222 11384374
734 - 1905344 - 5 4956 13289718
402 - 1098795 - 6 5358 14388513
204 - 496501 - 7 5562 14885014
PPS: 0.181471685163754
Prop: 0.126859067784552
7


As you can see, over the last 7 blocks, it would have paid .06 more to be PPS for me.

But over the long term, Prop starts to take the lead.

That snippet has the current PPS price of 0.00003262705594458 , if the difficulty goes up you'll have to change the PPS price.
