Could you have a co-operative mining pool that had a ceiling on each clients hashing power so that the load was distributed more evenly across all clients?

For instance blocking gpu's and only accepting cpu's ?

Of course it is doable. But why?

If you limit the load each client can provide to make it more "even", you also drastically limit the computing power of the entire pool, meaning it'll have less bitcoins to go around.

You'll get the same amount of coins from an unlimited pool... and have more frequent payouts because blocks will be solved more often.

I know its a silly question but if 100 people go into a newsagent and buy a lotto ticket they all have the same chance of winning . If  2 buy 30 lotto tickets what are the chances the other 98 will win ? They dont increase....


But then communism always fails  Tongue

The difference here is there are several newsagents, all selling tickets to the same lottery.
If you kick out the 2 rich players, they'll just buy their 30 tickets each at the next newsagent and your chances will stay the same.
