Ethereum Mining Pool Hub Notice
Ethereum Mining Pool Hub now treats stale shares useful, and it's time to discuss about stale share reward.
Currently, stale shares are not counted as valid share, and these are all treated as vanish work from pool.
It's quite fair because rule is same for everyone. But for slow network connected miners, it's little bit not fair. They contribute more often with their stale shares but gather less than contribution.
So, we would like to change the stale share reward system.
Latest top height's share (normal share) can make block and get 5 ETH.
(Top height - 1) share can make uncle block and would generate 4.375 ETH. (87.5% of 5ETH)
(Top height - 2) share can make uncle block and would generate 3.75 ETH. (75% of 5ETH)
(Top height - 6) share can make uncle block and would generate 1.25 ETH. (25% of 5ETH)
So same goes with share value too.
(Top height - 1) stale share to treat as 87.5% share of normal share.
(Top height - 2) stale share to treat as 75% share of normal share.
This rule doesn't change much about distribution rule, you would get almost same reward as before, but only pool's block finding percent stats would be higher.
We want to listen about your opinions.
Whatever rule is considered, miners would get more reward with latest genoil-ethminer 1.0.8https://github.com/Genoil/cpp-ethereum/tree/108/releases
