I'm a bit confused with the fees taken. Is it right how I understood it?:

Code:
  50 BTC/block
+ X.XXXXXXXX BTC from fees of transactions in the solved block
= Total BTC to be distributed

Now:
0,5% of 'Total BTC' goes to the one who finds the block
0,5% of 'Total BTC' goes to forrestv
What remains is PPLNS (Payed Per Last N Shares)

Please confirm or correct me. Thanks.

That's exactly correct. The only minor thing is that the payment to the last N shares is weighted according to the difficulty of getting a p2pool share at that time.

The difficulty of getting a p2pool share is automatically adjusted to keep one share being produced every ten seconds for all people using p2pool, in exactly the same way that the bitcoin difficulty is adjusted to keep blocks being generated at one every ten minutes.

Doing this now.

Tell me if I understood it right. Is it so that if I add some more miners the share time will decrease, then the p2pool difficulty must increase to reach the ten seconds again and therefore the weight of the new shares has also to increases for the payout?

That keeps it fair, and so is good!

hey forest it might be a good idea if you can to update the miners in guiminer sence a ton use that and you cant drag and drop your mods into it because they cause it to not open any longer.  If you can even do that i have no info on how it would be done.

How about including some transactions in the 4th block?! The future will need more fees than generation rewards... and you're missing the whole idea of mining...

If there are no transactions being recorded, that is a major design problem.

I love the idea of this pool, but one thing that personally puts me off it is the 0.5% fee to forrestv.
It's negligible I know, and I understand that you probably want a piece of the "pool operator pie" with some other pools charging 2% and things like that. But wouldn't it be better to have an auto-donate feature instead? (as in, auto-donating 1% of your shares to a forrestv donation worker)

I know I'd personally prefer that over a fee, mainly because it's not forced upon people. And you'd probably generate more from this "opt-out auto-donate system" than you would with a 0.5% fee.

The project to me seems to symbolize freedom from the mining pool operators and this fee kinda spoils it for me.

Any thoughts on switching to this?

If my post helped, I'll happily accept a few bitmills!   15rGg6A1JFZV3b7TTbtpAaiYGdUD1e1oAm

I would like to see it the way that the node responsible can decide if he wants to include transactions in the blocks he finds for the p2pool. Even grater it would be if he could decide if he wants to include transactions with no fees or only those with fees or only those with fees > X.XXXXXXXX BTC.

Me too!   Cry

For me too ...

I also would appreciate that kind of donation feature to forrestv instead of the fixed 0,5% fee for him!
