the idea of cross-mining pool is interesting though...but, at 50% the pay of btc PPS, and you have no clue where's the rest going to..
lemme guess, his pocket?
Actually the cross-mining pool was my idea, and I run it. I have a partner who has helped by supplying the servers, and making a frontend for it. RealSolid is not directly involced in the pool at all, here merely is advertizing it. We pay 50% of the current market rate to the miner in a pps method, and once a block is found, we cash it out for SC, subtract from it the pps balances we have already committed to, and pay the remainder out in a proportional method based on the shares submitted during the 24 hours prior to the block find.
We actually don't charge any fees currently, and are hoping to not charge any in the future.
