Bitcoin - helping to end bankster enslavement.

[NOTE I figured it out it's a floating point error as I have the same problem in my pool]
So I decided to do some math to see if deepbit was paying us fairly and maybe my math is off.

Deepbit charges 3% right?

OK so I checked transaction...

Payment for Block
50.02197243 BTC

Total shares are

My Shares where

0.00240922 BTC

Sounds good right well.

3% of 50.02197243 = 1.5006591729
Giving us a total of 48.5213132571 to share
Now divide that by the total shares of 3140439 =
Now multiply that by my work of 156 shares =
0.00241027 BTC

Now I know what your thinking that's like off by 0.00000095 Really dude!?
Keep in mind I don't care about that small of amount but if you do it to enough people it's not right.
Also my math may be off so I am not accusing him of anything because people can get paid per share of
0.00002661294865101 BTC
so on that block I could have been paid more on a per share basis.

So just help me figure this out.

The pool operators tend to keep the transaction fees - miners divide the 50BTC after fees. Use 50 as your starting point and your payout is exactly what it should be.

Deepbit pays transactions fees for distributing earnings.  Could that be the source of discrepancy, or is that price already factored into the 3% fee?

Edit: Probably factored into the 3%.  Talldude's answer accounts for the discrepancy.

My experience with deepbit is probably slush paid a little bit more, if with the same luck (and yeah, I already took into account the difference in commissions). Could be related to the algorithm as I trust both pools are honest.
