In order to sidestep the chicken-and-egg problem of bootstrapping a mining pool, in this thread people can promise to put a certain amount of hashing power on the p2pool network when the total pledged is high enough.

Background:
P2Pool is a decentralized pool that works by creating a P2P network of miner nodes. These nodes work on a chain of shares similar to Bitcoin's blockchain. Each node works on a block that includes payouts to the previous shares' owners and the node itself. There is no central point of failure, making it DoS resistant.

Forum thread | P2Pool wiki page | GitHub project page

'High enough' should be around 30GH/s, but this is open to discussion. 30GH/s results in an average time-to-first-block of 3 days, with the 50% and 95% percentiles being 2 days and 9 days. Once the agreed upon amount is reached, I'll signal everyone to begin on this thread.

If you're already mining on p2pool, put your pledge in anyway so we can have an accurate total.

Sum so far: 25.68GH/s

---

I pledge the 410MH/s that I'm already mining with.

Creating a Bitcoin client that fully implements the network protocol is extremely difficult. Bitcoin-Qt is the only known safe implementation of a full node. Some other projects attempt to compete, but it is not recommended to use such software for anything serious. (Lightweight clients like Electrum and MultiBit are OK.)

by the way, don't feel that you have to hold off on joining the pool until the pledge drive is complete. pool is already running at 1.5ghps or so, so join at will if you want.

I added 2.1 Gh/s yesterday. This will go up to 2.5 when I bring another card on-line and creep up to 3.0 as the weather cools (~ Sept.)

edit: up to 2.5 now. Will tweak and tune daily. C'mon block#1!

I'm currently putting ~0.7Ghash/s in.

If the following conditions are met, I'll slowly start putting in more, up to about 20GHash/s:

1. I'm sure that p2pool works and payouts are OK and fair (would take at least 1 found block to convince me about it)
2. The (USD price for bitcoin) / difficulty ratio stays above 0.000 002 19
3. There's someone other than me contributing sensible amounts of hashpower (I don't want to be the only large contributor) - I'll be keeping my contributions at or below 50% the total pool hashrate.

This looks like the best project since bitcoin itself :-)
