Separating the Publisher and Self-Mining Prize Pools

This was something we wrote about in the whitepaper but hadn’t actually implemented until today. Due to the fantastic adoption rate with webmasters since we launched the platform we found that it was increasingly difficult to win coins using the self-mining system on the platform.

We have had some issues in the last 24 hours with the servers. We had some very high volume publishers sign up who are sending great volume. This caused some teething problems which are now solved.

You can…
