We wanted to follow up on some discussions about exchange trades that were being done at low prices, and the question as to why amounts were being sold so far below the lowest current ask offers.

We did some digging and found that one pool in particular, zpool.ca, is currently mining a significant amount of blocks and the rewards are being automatically sold at regular intervals on exchanges far below the lowest asking price.

We don't believe that there's any malicious or damaging intent by the pool, but rather, it's just the result of lazy automation and the fact that they exchange mined rewards for BTC as quickly as possible -  no is one looking at the spread, nor making informed decisions. It's not a natural buying/selling process, in fact it's basically a selling bot - and the problem is compounded by overall low volume.

We've requested that zpool remove us from their pool, but they may not choose to co-operate so we're looking at other options that would help mitigate or eliminate the effect they're having.

One potential solution we are considering, is selecting an established pool that does NOT do automatic payouts in BTC - and setting up a promotion to encourage users to switch away from "damaging" pools such as zpool, and join our selected pool. Right now bsod provides a significant amount of the hash power, so they would be the obvious choice.

A second option would be to setup our own official pool with 0% fees. We would handle the operations and expenses of this pool and it would be not-for-profit. If a fee were ever added, the full amount would be donated to charities.

We'd love to get community feedback on either of these approaches.

Quickly arrived to a consensus on Discord that everyone wanted an official community pool with zero fees.

Made some good progress with setting it up today and it should be ready to start testing publicly. It has mined blocks, they've cleared, and payments went through so it's looking good so far.  For anyone that has miners and is willing to test, here's the link:

https://pool.our-rapture.com/ 
-o stratum+tcp://pool.our-rapture.com:4233 -a neoscrypt -u <WALLET_ADDRESS>

Beyond this, looking more at the issue we're facing with zpool (and really any pool that operates in a similar fashion), we're looking for additional ways to mitigate the impact they're having. The problem is that they're both an auto-switching pool and an auto-selling pool.  They have an average of 2,000 miners and as soon as Rapture's mining difficulty drops to a certain level relative to other projects, a big amount of those miners automatically start mining Rapture and those rewards get automatically dumped on exchanges.  With our mining block rewards being 7 Rapture and having 2 minute blocks, this is giving them a significant amount that is being unloaded on exchanges and having this eroding effect. One of the more extreme, but probably also more effective, approaches would be to re-balance block rewards......lower the mining rewards and raise the masternode rewards. This might not outright eliminate it, but will absolutely reduce the impact it's having. This change would be a mandatory update, so we wanted to float this idea now to see what the feedback is. Feel free to drop into the Discord server to discuss! https://discord.gg/NMgQEn8

Miners simply want to get back their money as soon as possible, maybe pressure of electricity bills.

Cheers!

We've dropped RAP from the pool. Those miners that were getting paid in RAP will no longer. Please switch to some other currency to get paid in.

Very much appreciated, at this point the autoswap pool mechanics combined with the autoswitching hashing power have been a major challenge in recent weeks. We appreciate the support and wish the best to zpool!

But it seems that Zpool charges too high compared to other pools

He guys, at the crowdcoin forum i read this quote ? from GreenPanda,
_______________________________________________________________________________ _______________________________
Let me first say that this is just my own opinion, not the one of others. I am not trying to spread fud, I am just one miner, do what you want with my message... but here is a copy/paste of a post that I made on the Sparks coin thread a few days ago... My suspicions are getting more serious since, those always anonymous developpers are getting more and more silent, and I feel it is important you research this:

Sparks, Rapture, Phobos, Cerberus, Crowdcoin, Race, Dinero, Infinex, Force, Stipend, Endorphin, VIVO, Innova, Cropcoin and the list goes on and on and on.... All the same exact pattern copied: Masternode/PoW hybrid, ''small'' premine, Masternode auctions through discords, Airdrops , Anonymous teams, same wallet code and bugs, Masternode gets most or half of the mining, only on stocksexchange (except 2 or 3 of thoses)... It wouldnt surprise me if it would be all coming from the same team/person or maybe a teacher somewhere giving his students a school project to each start a coin... Extremely suspicious, do your research and prove me wrong please!

I dont hope its tru, i just invest in some masternode of this list pffffff

so you start off with "suspicions" then he ends in "prove me wrong"...  lol

That said I really don't know how coins with so much going the masternodes will work in the long term.  Get the feeling only the ppl wanting to put a masternode online will be the only ones mining.  Once you get enough masternodes online and ppl see very little return, then no more mining and coin slowly fades away.

I can only speak for our own project and say that there's no connection between our team and any of these other projects, Rapture is our team's sole focus and we wouldn't even have the bandwidth to attend to another project! It's not uncommon for projects to have extensive similarities in code....many projects fork from Dash because their feature set is mature and is an excellent starting point, so there are going to be a lot of similarities in the code base, particularly early on. Dash, like many projects, is forked from Bitcoin core, so there are going to be even broader similarities there. PivX, which is considered a strong project, forked from Dash a few years back and there was a time that they would have been considered similar to other projects....but they've built from that point forward and evolved into a very separate project with its own unique features.

I believe one of the main factors worth considering when doing your research is what the team is putting into the project in terms of commitment (hopefully evident by how they engage with the community), what their vision and roadmap is for their project and whether or not they have a unique or real-world application (in our case a few of our early differences are charity nodes and a strong charity focus overall, physical gifting cards, and a few other strong unique ideas in the works). Thanks!

You make a good point - there is always a balance to maintain. We've discussed the possibility of a future move to PoS, and a lot of people in the community support this idea. So we'll see how things go after our upcoming reward redistribution, and decide from there!
