This account, user mmpool, is intended to provide support for mmpool on this forum. This can be confirmed via the contact
page on mmpool.org. Unfortunately we can't change the topic title or first post details of this thread. Should we continue this thread or start a new one so details can be updated? Is it possible to have an ownership change of the thread to keep the history?
As outlined in the contact page the pool broadcasts updates via bitmessage on address BM-NBs7aHtbw6x7beefygEC4Cv6Rsp2dZni
and receives support requests on that same address. Email is also actioned at email@example.com
Regarding Mazacoin, it is not currently merge mineable. There have been quite a few requests for it as their marketing suggests it is. Huntercoin
is an option to add but it's quite resource intensive as it is based on the old namecoin source code. That coin is also a bit of a resource suck. Most of the merge mineable alt coins have been moving to a newer code base based on the i0coin changes to reduce memory usage which has been very welcome.
Changes have been made, and more are in the pipeline, to make the pool more attractive to miners. I'm not sure this is actually possible in this new world of cloud hashing and China based ASIC pools but I'd like to keep the pool going. It needs more hash power. Missing an entire difficulty period is bad.
Some thoughts, inviting comment and other ideas:
- Tiered fee model for higher hashrate or higher difficulty miners - similar to what HHTT was doing.
- Normal accounts to allow changing of addresses easier
- Notification of miner hash rate drops. Although this is quite easily achieved via third party services it's still useful I think.
