I have been mining Zen on supernova and have noticed a really irritating trend from large miners.

When there is a period of bad luck - the last few blocks are a few hundred percent over the estimated solve time then statistically the next few blocks will be solved under the estimated solve time.

These guys smash into the pool massively diluting the payout for the other miners for the blocks that will be solved in a far shorter time and then leave again, most of the time they do not even solve the blocks.

It really screws up your earnings because if you have had 1 hour of bad luck the 1 hour of good luck and you are getting far less thanks to the large miners so the total average is much less.

Most of them have hash rates so high they could mine solo and still earn 300+ zen a day.

Nicehash pool hoppers, nothing new really ...

Zencash is not the ony coin affected by these guys.

And I agree that it's really annoying, but there's nothing you can do about it.

I don't want to protect nicehash. They don't pay me for advertising, but I like to work with them. My friend tried to work at many pools separately. He failed to earn more. He was tormented looking for more lucrative options, time is wasted on switch and nothing better he found. I launched the installation via nicehash and not even every day to check her work. I think this is the best option.

Same happens to flypool not sure if its a group of miners or single farm.  They "hammer" the pool for a short times, this started like about 1-2 months ago.

I think it is a group of miners - as some are named "anonymous" and some use names on supernova. I drop to almost half the normal payout per round when they show up. Sometimes it is one or two and others a group of four or so.

If they stayed mining on the pool it would not be an issue but they only stay for between 10 - 20 mins. They do not appear to impact on the network difficulty so their hashing power is staying on the network but just on different pools.

The only way around it is to find a different pool that is not on their "circuit".
