Why do you see an issue with power? It wouldn’t grant the foundation any extra powers that I can see. Id like to hear more on what you think on this if you have time.
I don’t see how it impacts decentralization. it is another pool to use.
Is it any worse than nanopool, or antpool? There is less chance of collusion between a foundation run pool with another pool than two independent pools.
it is a bit like the forum in my mind.
Would it though? I am not a lawyer and certainly don’t pretend to be one on the internet (not saying you are!) but I know in the UK a non profit can run a business to generate money for the non profit. as long as they don’t make a profit - I don’t see it as different to accepting a donation from block distribution. Maybe it could go to the non ecc and non foundation grants system.
They developed with parity.
Maybe, but I like ugly hacks - and you are in a much better position to assess pool software than anyone else i know on the forum that engages regularly. I also imagine youd have some idea of the costs.
I also wanted to ask you if I could look at your perl code for the pool too please. (I bow to your knowledge of it being a business activity, still interested if its an option though.) - they could do things like only z2z payouts, etc. or maybe fund a grant for a 3rd party to do it for them.
