PPLNS isn't terrible even for intermittent miners, so don't be scared away from this payout system if you're the type who only mines part-time.

Before I did my own simulations (www.calindora.com/tmp/bitcoin/index.php) of various payout methods, I wasn't much of a fan of PPLNS, as my first instinct was that it would overly punish intermittent miners. (However, a cursory examination will show that the expected reward for a share in PPLNS is the same regardless of the time it was submitted.)

However, after doing all that research into the payout systems, I think PPLNS is probably the best system overall so far. (Geometric is close, but running a 0% fee pool with low variance for intermittent miners puts more risk in the pool operator's hands.) Its variance is a bit high, espeically if N is low, which is why I favor an N of either the difficulty or twice the difficulty, but it's pool hopping proof in any case.

Hi there!

Could you elaborate on how shares "eligible for reward" are calculated and how they differ from the total shares submitted by a user for the current block?  Also, the formula for BTC reward refers to submitted shares, and thus it is unclear why there would be a difference between submitted and eligible shares.

Thanks!

This was the second pool I mined on. Was a very stable pool unfortunately PPLNS isnt for me as I am not able to mine 24/7. If I was I would definitely go back to them.

PPLNS doesn't punish you if you can't mine 24/7. The only difference vs a proportional pool is that the hashrate you submit now might get you nothing or it might get you 5x the reward. Compare that to mining part-time in a proportional pool: you might submitting work during a short round where you get a fast payout, or your part-time work might be diluted to near-nothing by a long round with full-time miners. It all evens out.
