of the Charity Pool
I'm pleased to announce the launch of charitycoin - our new pool designed to give something back to the bitcoin development community. We are offering a 10 BTC bounty to the finder of our first block
. Finders of the second and third blocks will receive a 2BTC and 1BTC bounty respectively.
This project was inspired by Unthinkingbit in this thread http://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=20455.0.
While the pool has been running for some time, it has not been officially launched until today as we have been waiting for our new domain name. However there is some delay with that so I have used a temporary domain name to get us going as it's better to get going than sit around!
We are an open registration charity mining pool which gives 1% of every generated block to open source bitcoin developers and writers specified here.
This is done via the donation amount being fixed at 1% for each user. You can donate more if you wish, just let me know in this thread or via PM (include your pool username) and I will make the necessary modifications.
We currently have an pool admin fee of 0.5% which we will soon be moving to a weighted fee based on block round time (the shorter the round, the smaller the fee), with a maximum fee of 0.5%. Pool keeps transaction fees.
While we are waiting our new domain name from Privacyshark, you can find us here.
You can use the following URL to mine with us (set up an account and miner first!):http://charitycoin.coinncarry.com:8344
Some Pool Features
Latest pushpoold with long poll/LP and blkmonD to reduce stales
ozco.in fork of simplecoin interface
Cool stats and info
'cheat proof score'
Currently based on Amazon EC2 Infrastructure for resilience and reliability
Currently automatic payout is disabled until we find our first block, whereupon I can run the payout system and ensure there are no bugs to ensure that everyone gets paid correctly. Once the first payout has happened, automatic payout will be enabled for all subsequent blocks. Instant payout is available with a 2% fee.
I'm looking for reputable members to assist with the pool (support, coding etc) if anyone is interested, please PM me.There is currently a 0.25 BTC bounty for anyone who reports an exploitable security vulnerability.
Hope to see you all on board soon and good luck to our miners in getting the bounty and future coins!
of the Mainframe Mining Cooperative

and you'll be added to the list of developers we donate to.)
We currently have an administration fee of 0.5% over the 1% donation amount (1.5% total fee) and utilize a cheat proof scoring algorithm for calculating a fair payout of your shares
