A mining pool originally created for the Ars Technica community. The pool is open to the public.

This pool pays out using a Shared Maximum Pay-Per-Share system. This means that it credits miners with a constant BTC per share based on the current difficulty. It then attempts to pay out miners as much as possible when new blocks are found. This method prevents pool-hoppers from getting a higher than average value for their shares. More details about payment system on the homepage or bitcoin forums.

The service was first available on June 15, 2011[1]. It was announced on the Bitcoin forums on June 17th, 2011[2].

Reward distribution
