well fuck, how are these launches fair if pools don't start working at launch?
Because there is no reason you can't solo mine
exactly and even if they could solo mine they would realise your chances of getting a block solo are very slim on a coin like this with diff retarget.
So learn to solo mine everyone, then realise you probably are not missing out on the launch since you will notice you get fuck all blocks with retarget every block.
However it stops pools getting source early compiling then starting before the launch and screwing the launch up.
There are so many miners now and with fast diff retarget.....instamining is over. Many won't like it ....but that just how it is. The scam coins will still be released in future but again only those with huge hash farms will really cash in.
