Many GPUs rig owners have been reporting getting 10%-25% less shares or payouts for mining Dagger (Ethereum) at the pools, when compared to the mining calculators. I decided more than 2 weeks ago to research this topic for the benefit of the GPU rig
If hashes are cheap on Earth, you want them exported to Mars to improve the security of the Martian block chain. Exporting hashes is easy to do in the stateless manner we expect from decentralized Bitcoin technology. Each block on a block chain is pr
