So if I submitted 15 shares....30 minutes into a 2 hours long block and stop. What would me reward be for those 15 shares ? No other shares submitted on that same worker during the same block.
Nobody said that score based methods have the same (=zero) variance as PPS, so your question is misleading. I'll put contra question: What happen when you submitted 15 shares one minute before end of the round?
You picked extreme case. Why should anybody donated exactly 15 shares at one time? Of course that this may lead into huge variance. But if you donate 1-5% of your hashrate steadily, you're drastically eliminating the variance.
Btw I joined few GPUs into the public account few minutes ago, because I want to see hashrate far over 2Ghash :-)
Correct, no one said that about zero variance...I said that intermittent mining on a score-based pool for "donation" of hashrate is basically not effective and would be a waste.
I picked an extreme case, because it's plausible. Why would anyone donate $15 to the UnitedWay once, when they could do it all day long...right ? Mining intermittently, in the middle of a round, to donate some shares, then leave...will penalize you on score-based pools. So the below that you wrapped in quotes and I highlighted, is true.
You still didn't answer how much my reward would be for those 15 shares, that I donated, in that "extreme case" of one-time donating...you know, like a charity ? Still curious on it.
I'm just wanting to ensure that all "donated" shares are profitable to the company and investors, has nothing to do with slush or score as a whole, please keep that in mind.
If you wanted hash rate donations, you shouldn't have picked a score pool. People are basically just wasting their shares there, unless they stay in for full blocks.
This is, of course, not true. I thought that the fame "score based pools are penalizing intermittent miners"
is already gone.
By the way, when all people use this public miner, it then acts as one "strong" miner from the side of the pool, which even eliminate this imaginary penalization.
