In the PPLNS model, if N=250,000, what happens when it is a new pool, before the pool reaches N shares?
I'm mining in a new litecoin pool. There are currently ~13,000 completed shares. Until completed shares is greater than or equal to N, how are the coins distributed? Do all the coins get paid out to the pool?
Contact your pool op and tell them to adjust N - that's for BTC difficulty (I think). Which LTC isn't on. Probably just a copy/paste error.
If N isn't reached, the pool acts just like a prop pool, as far as I know.
