    the mecahnism for sending coins is, that if you have 100 little payments received and use them to send one large payment, the corresponding transaction needs to have 100 inputs, what increases the size needed in the block chain to add the transaction.

    You can see the inputs on the left side of the page wrapper mentioned.
    All this is contained in the transaction.

    This functionality is implemented in all coins and allows to track each coin or fraction of a coin back to the block it was mined with.

    Fair enough. My android wallet has resynced now and I’ll give it a shot.

    Here is the wallet address (you could have also gotten it from the block explorer link I pasted in the first post).

    Now that I’ve resynced I’ll try it a 1 FTC send to Bittrex.

    By the way, thanks for being so responsive, great so far.

    Sorry I didn’t find that link, and the receiving address 6v …

    No worries. Unfortunately after resetting the chain the transaction appeared again, so my wallet balance is at 0 once more. I’ll try another reset and set a miner to try and mine some more.

    Ok, keep us informed. Can you post the recieving address? 6v …

    @wrapper the receiving address was 6vfLUhoNZQAsegnaxQuUYjJsLvtnrYZckc

    A second blockchain reset removed the 87 FTC transaction and I sent a 1 FTC test to the address above, which went through easy and is now showing pending on my Bittrex wallet.

    I mentioned I used a 0.1 fee after a reset (initially I didn’t know about reset, so I uninstalled and reinstalled) because the default appears to be 0.01. Even then, with a higher fee, I guess the many small pool rewards make transferring potentially difficult. I’m now using p2pool.neoscrypt.de, and since I only have 3 GPUs pointed at it, am getting rewards of ~0.09 FTC every so often.

    Perhaps there is some updates that can be done on the p2pool side that can set a minimum payout amount to reduce these kind of dusty payments? My thought here is that to increase adoption for small timers like me with a limited number of rigs, it could make things easier for new miners to join in. I’m guessing there could be some other benefits behind the scenes as well. Anyway, just a thought, I’m not even sure if you are the team behind p2pool or have a hand in that.

    I successfully sent a 10 FTC transaction as well, took about 10 minutes to go through. Length on that one was 8805. The more I can transfer and the less fees I can pay, the more profitable the mining is, of course…

    Thanks for the great support. 😃

    I sent another 15 FTC transaction, and that one seems to have a length of 16k, which has sat for about 15 minutes in “This payment has not been transmitted yet”. I’ll be patient with that one before resetting, but at the moment with 0.09 FTC pool rewards, 10 FTC seems to be the sweet spot for relatively quick transmissions.

    This is difficult to do in the no trust required shares system. It would need to run wallets to store shares longer.

    I have suggested the solution is to have “coloured pools” i.e. Smaller p2pools, so the payments arn’t so dusty. Perhaps the have a maximum number of contributers.

    It would mean waiting longer between payments. But each coloured pool could have differen’t settings, for example 48 hour stratum so people could mine during night rate electic pay levels and retain their stratum over the day.

    Coloured p2pools would require some settings and “versioning” of the current codebase.

    Unfortunately this is not possible, as p2pool does not use miner accounts to collect payouts. Whenever a block is found by the pool all miners participating get their share of the coins based on the hashes they contributed to find the block.
