Also, how do I make polls here ?
Oh noes, someone can't find where the goddamn poll button / checkbox / whatever is in this particular forum, that truly disqualifies one from experimenting with open source software, right ?
What's the new functionality here? If it's something people believe in then people will setup pools.
Sekkrit until I finish fooling around and experimenting (it very well might be that I abandon the idea at this point, so I don't want to get people too exited until I am reasonably certain that I can deliver something
But you see, to even have a shot at the thing I have in mind, I would need to increase centralization somewhat, hence the desire to have pools in it from day one (EDIT: I don't want to use licensed mining, as it seems to me that it is liable to cause a PKI hell of some sort)
Well, I'd like to donate some pooled mining setup.
Question is if your blockchain is pool-safe(i.e. NOT like namecoin, more lilke the solidcoin chain).
Well, yes, given the crazy difficulty rollercoasters that forks are prone to, I'll have to implement some changes to diff adjust rate, though I'm still undecided as to what values should I use (I'm gonna play around with that in my VM net for quite some time)
However, I'm not sure I want an asymmetric retargeting scheme a-la solidcoin's "pool safe" approach (I want to be, for lack of better term, "pool friendly", since I need to ascertain a limited degree of centralization)... I am quite
concerned about difficulty deadlocks when powerful mining pools leave, but not so much about diff rising rapidly when they arrive... Perhaps I am wrong and I should be concerned about that, too ?
