P2Pool

Post by indolering » Sat Aug 23, 2014 11:21 pm

What is the current problem with P2Pool merged mining? I would like to get a bounty going for it.

The problem is that chains additional to Bitcoin are currently solo mined. Thus variance is high.

Maybe we should put an explanation of how to do it on the wiki. Like this: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic ... msg8440650
nx.bit - some namecoin stats

I think either midnightmagic or Luke-Jr (can't remember who) was saying that merged mining and P2Pool could be fixed; anyone have details on that?

Could we ask the main P2Pool dev to setup a bounty?

Never got an answer from forrest about that.

Actually getting this issue fixed would help decentralize Bitcoin mining a lot so maybe we could get an official Bitcoin bounty/grant.

I've sent in a few Bitcoin grant requests, if you want to writeup the technical details I'd be happy to review and submit it.
