So after all that heated debate about p2sh in the first place, what's support on mining pools like for p2sh payouts? Deepbit actually seems to work just fine, eligius I'm not sure, my miner connects fine but the stats on the website are all broken. What about other pools?


FWIW I was just playing around with p2sh addresses on a whole lot of things. For those who haven't seen one, they look like this: 3FArYwLzPwRBbh1yN3Fx6tBZ5rZBPdaMPt the difference being the 3 at the start. A lot of software out there seems to choke; I messed around for a bit asking various websites to make payouts and I'd guess support was about 50:50. Blockchain.info and blockexplorer both can't recognize them, showing up as "Unable to decode output address" and trying to search for a transaction with such an address in it fails, and using such an address as an input to a transaction to, say, bitlotto or satoshidice, is apparently rather ill-advised...

I've checked my pool: www.triplemining.com should accept those addresses, everything should work fine.

I think the main thing to do is not to attempt to validate the payout addresses yourself.   The bitcoin daemon has a function called "validateaddress" which verifies whether an address is correct, and this is the only way your software should validate addresses.  Our software does it that way....

BTC Guild appears to have no problem validating and sending transactions to p2sh addresses.  I just sent 0.01 to 3FArYwLzPwRBbh1yN3Fx6tBZ5rZBPdaMPt as a test and the transaction is in queue waiting for confirmations.

UPDATE:  Transaction has been confirmed and is part of the blockchain.
