I was doing mining in minerpools.com for some fun. Most of the times I can found this in Round option. Why does anyone receiving payouts if they don't have even 1 shares? This is not for just one block. I'm seeing it regularly in there.

According to NIST and ECRYPT II, the cryptographic algorithms used in Bitcoin are expected to be strong until at least 2030. (After that, it will not be too difficult to transition to different algorithms.)

The shares carry over, its to average out the luck.

Lets say there is a short round where you don't get much hashes, but a longer round where you get relatively more, then you're losing out. PPLNS aims to average this out and minimize variance.

Just now read about PPLNS, now I can understand it. Thanks
