Welcome to P2P Mining.

This community page was set up to collect ideas and changes required to the P2Pool mining software to allow it to scale and hopefully become the only real way to avoid a 51% attack on the Bitcoin network.

This is based on P2Pool who's code can be found here on GitHub

Based on conversations here and here

Core Server Code


Find a way to enable smaller miners to be able to mine on P2Pool while allowing larger miners to also mine.

Possible solution is to have nested sharechains or nodes so that smaller miners can connect or process those without being completely lost in the higher hashing rates and be assigned much higher difficulty than they may be able to hash.
