Going back over some of the blog posts for zcash.
There's mention of mining on a smartphone.
Further down the track, our goal is to have the Equihash solver optimised for running on smartphones. We hope that this will greatly aid the decentralization of mining — users could mine Zcash while their phones are plugged in and unused overnight!
My current computer gets 5 Sol/s. I currently have mining turned off, because from the calculators I've used there's very very slim chance of mining with that low of a Sol/s. Does mining help the network even if there is low chance of winning a block?
I'm confused about the documentation before the launch vs what we are seeing?
