I had a feature request lately. But as there might be others that have the same request I'd like to post it here. After solving the block you have no possibility to see your "estimated reward". The block needs 120 confirmations but you as user have no possibility to check what is in you pipeline. I know that this is a bit clumsy. I was asked to add something like an "unconfirmed reward" thingy. This however will not be implemented on masterpool.eu
Instead I'm working on direct payout. This means the pool will pay for a block right after it found him. Thus as a user you don't have to deal with confirmation stuff. We find a block, you get your NMCs! Should be that easy.
This however makes some precautions nessesary. As the pool will pay its members for blocks that are unconfirmed (and thus unpaid) I had to fund the pools wallet. This is already done. But as the pool takes all the risk the other system needs to be rock solid. Thus please bear with me while I get this feature implemented
Another thing that is different from most other pools (at least from BTC pools I know) is that the Pool Fee is a Payout Fee. Unlike most other pools, what you see is NOT what you get on Payout. This means the Fee (currently 2%) is not substracted until you withdraw NMC. I have heard that this might be a bit misleading thus I want to explain my intention:
1. Transparency. You see what you have "donated" to the pool in your transactions
2. Services. This is the most important reason for this system. I'm thinking about offering additional services (like trading for BTC or register Domains). This services should have another (or no) fee.
3. Discounts on the Fee. If there are users who dedicate some of their time to the pool they should be awarded. Being a Beta tester, acquiring new users, or translating the website in foreign languages could be gratificated with a discount on payout fees for a period of time or even for lifetime of the account.
I hope that explains this special "Payout Fee that is not found anywhere else"?!
