For the miners. Do you prefer a large pool with frequent small payments or a small pool with fewer but larger payments ? Or solo for large but rare payouts ?
I know overall the 30 day average should come out the same, getting paid 10 times more frequently but 1/10th the amount from a huge pool, or getting payments 1/10th often but for 10x time amount from a smaller one.
I have been happy with a small pool. It only finds 2-4 blocks per day but I still get around $2.00 for each one found even with my old hardware. Some days we get lucky and hit 5-6 blocks and I get around $10-12 on those days. I also tried a huge pool that finds a block every few minutes and paid around 18 cents an hour consistently but changed back to the small one.
