I keep reading that everyone swears by PPS Pool mining payouts, but I have never done it in a Pool. I have been mining for a couple months now and have only really ever experienced the payouts from PROP Pools.
Lately, I have been averaging things out and even though the Mob says "Prop is for fools, PPS is a no brainer" (paraphrasing of course), I just can't see how I can make more using PPS ?
On average, I generate roughly 2400+ shares/hour (based on a week or so of data). I also belong to an EXTREMELY lucky, smaller pool that offers both payment types, but I have been rather hesitant to switch over to PPS because the math just doesn't add up....for me anyways....and I am quite happy with things the way they are - but payment type chatter/speculation is contagious and spreads like wildwire...lol
On an average day of mining for me, I am by no means a 'heavy hitter' and actually get my ass kicked on shorter rounds, but after an hour, when the pool jumpers all leave, I have enough power to re-claim a decent amount of value for my shares and often times, see my end-round payouts actually double+ (if that makes sense) when comparing shorter 1hr-or-less rounds to 2+ hour rounds. Because of this, even though I am using PROP payment, I still benefit just as if I were using PPS in longer rounds, which is why I haven't felt the need to do anything different up until now.
Could someone who has crossed this bridge already perhaps chime in and help me out ?
