Ok so just an idea that sounds like it would be fun and bring in lots o miners.. Grin


  0% fees, BUT when each block is solved you take 1/2 of the trans fees and have a lottery where one miner wins this. (all automated)

That way even slow to midrange miners have a chance at a nice bonus payment.

Would work like this = randomly pick 1 share submitted and pay the bonus.

This way anyone contributing more shares would have a higher chance, BUT everyone would have a chance.



Think it would be a very popular pool and have the added bonus of the 'casino' feel. Would make mining more interesting to me, for sure!

Unlike traditional banking where clients have only a few account numbers, with Bitcoin people can create an unlimited number of accounts (addresses). This can be used to easily track payments, and it improves anonymity.

While such a scheme favors slow miners, it won't exactly attract the big boys with lots of mhashes so it might be hard to reach a reasonable hashrate.

While not the exact same, TripleMining has a system that is something like this. A jackpot is handed out every week. All active miners are basically given one "ticket". Everyone has the same chance to win, so the whole share thing is not there, and it's only once per week. (although it's going to be a big, big jackpot when the pool gets bigger)
