OK, here's my idea.
1. You setup the pool as usual... (poclbm, etc.)
2. You are paid based on what returns you generate.
3. The pool sells some collective mining contracts, I might allow a vote to be placed for the larger contract deals!
4. You're paid a little cut of the contract profits (proportionate to how much you mine) AND how much you mine!
5. Epic win
I have a nice VPS available, 2GB ram, etc.
Can someone explain exactly how a pool works in plain english? (Which maybe I can then convert to Python or something).
Furthermore, I might release the code open source... But only after a certain amount of donations have been recieved. (This is long term, after I actually have something)
