How does pool mining work
« on: January 09, 2014, 07:00:07 PM »
I understand that a key needs to be found that when hashed, is a number below a certain threshold. So the way that I assume a pool works is that it gives each worker a different range to check to see if any of the keys in that range fit this criteria. My question is pertaining to how each worker presents the pool manager the proof of work if they did not find the key that is needed? Does the worker simply submit all keys that hash to below a more relaxed threshold and the pool manager interpolates how much work they've done from the difficulty of this personal threshold?
