Hello,

I joined the pool deepbit a little while ago, and it seems that there are two options Proportional and Pay Per Share. I not really now as a beginner what is best for me. From Monday To Friday I can only start the miner for three hours in the weekend the whole day. I use GPU (m0mchil's miner) with an ATI RADEON HD 5670.

I'm not able to change the times that I can start the miner for reasons I'm not wanna say.

Does someone now what's best for me? I now what the difference is but.

Thanks in advance,

Gijs, From the Netherlands

i think your mining duration works out long enough to be part of a "proper" pool, i.e. one that doesnt charge 10% in the proportional scheme. try dash jrs.

I thought deepbit only charge's 10% on PPS and 3% on proportional... please say if i'm right?

And if I understand it good I should use proportional on another pool... for instance Slush's pool?

with your card, the hashrate you should be getting there's no reason not to be proportional. pick a pool, any pool you like, stick with it, and watch the btc roll in. thats about all the advice i can give ya

Yes, you are right, proportional fee is 3% and includes insurance against invalid blocks.

Welcome to my bitcoin mining pool: https://deepbit.net - Both payment schemes (including PPS), instant payout, no invalid blocks !

Each pool has there own little benefit based on preference.
If you like constant little btc bumps, choose a larger pool.
If you like longer, larger btc increases choose a smaller pool.
All in all they seem to work out to be the same/period of time in the long run.
Unless of course you're pool is wicked unlucky.

I personally jump between deepbit on the weekends (since i use my computer alot) and btcmine on the weekdays (since im not around to mess up my hash rate and that pool takes longer to find blocks).
