Simple question:

If someone where to start a new pool or maybe even proxy P2Pool, what could they provide that all of the other pools don't already provide?

-= Got BitCoin? =-
Every time a block is mined, a certain amount of BTC (called the subsidy) is created out of thin air and given to the miner. The subsidy halves every four years and will reach 0 in about 130 years.

The more the better you have more pools. More pools (=real miners) means its harder to do a 51% attack.
