Definition of Method

Proportional

A proportional pool carries no risk to the pool operator as miners are simply paid out when a block is found. No blocks, no payout! With a proportional pool the risk is all on the miners if it takes longer than expected to find a block then the miners earn less. On the flip side, if the pool is lucky (they will all average out the same eventually) the miners get more.

Example-

  • A block is found after 100,000 shares

  • You submitted 1,000 of those shares (you have 1% of the pools total hash power)

  • There’s 200 DERO per block

Quite simply you will get 1% of the block = 2 DERO.

Now if the pool has a bad round (a round is the time taken to find a block) and it takes 200,000 shares to find a block (twice as long) and you have submitted 2,000 shares (as you’ve been mining twice as long), you still only get 1% of the block = 2 DERO

This can also work in the miners favour too, as if it takes half the time (50,000 shares) to find a block and you submitted only 500 shares - again 1% - 2 DERO.

Basically, you always get you percentage of the block and you win/lose depending on the “luck” of the pool.

PPLNS (Pay Per Last n Shares)

PPLNS does not pay out per block found, rather it pays based on the number of shares you last submitted, and helps to dissuade pool hoppers.

How it works is, you start mining with a PPLNS pool. Rather than paying you out based on the no. of shares you submitted since you started mining/the last block was found, it will pay depending on how many shares you submitted in a period of time, called the window, which is an estimate of the time in which the pool in question finds a block. So, after you start mining, it will take a few hours for you to earn your normal earnings - and since the effect of pool hoppers is lessened, you may comparatively more than other methods.

Basically, you get paid based on

  • no. of shares you submitted

  • how long you have been mining.

The drawbacks to a prop pool are that there is often a fee although some pool ops rely on donations only and you will have to bear the variance of the block times and luck unlike a PPS pool. Also they are susceptible to “pool hoppers” where PPLNS pools are not.

Definition of Fees

Rather simple; the pool operator will take a percentage of the reward of the block found for himself.

Example-

  • the fee is 1%

  • the block reward is 30 DERO

  • 30 x 1% = 0.3

Therefore, the pool operator will take 0.3 DERO for himself.
