Re: Merged mining block number
Errrm ... No!
Is that really a big issue for the pool operators? I'm just guessing, so please correct me:
- A BTC miners connects to a BTC pool requesting work
- BTC Miner also connects to NMC pool requesting work
- BTC Miner is trying to find a solution for BTC share and applies solution with some minor (and fast) modification to NMC share
- If a solution is found it is send to the pool in question (or is the solution ALWAYS valid for both pools?)
If I get this correctly there are still two types of pools running a pushpoold (or any homebrew equivalent). The namecoind however needs some changes. But as long as the pool daemon (like pushpoold) won't need any change it shouldn't be that difficult for pool operators. I guess every pool operator has a roll-out plan for a new namecoind?! It's more a problem for miners. This would mean a completely new mining software?
But perhaps I'm completely wrong
