A couple of questions I have regarding zcashd.
When I run the node I can see it works to validate transactions. That’s great as it helps the community. At the same time when I spent zcash there is a transaction fee. So who actually receives the transaction fee. Do I as someone that verifies transactions (without mining) will receive a portion of those fees?
I can see I can enable CPU mining with zcashd. Does it worth doing it? And by worth I mean, do enabling it somehow helps both the network to better validate transactions and me to receive zcash? Or it’s just a lottery with very low chance to win, and this feature enabled in zcashd is practically unusable.
Just to note I’m running the node under a Hyper-V VM. The default solver receives about 0.06 sol/s while using tromp’s solver, I get about 16 sols/s. At the same time using my 2 GPUs an external miner and a shared pool I receive about 1300 sols/s. So the rephrase the question somehow, does zcashd when used as a miner do something different compared to other miners that may worth considering?
