Since there are so many miners mining Teacoins, about 98% of the shares for that coin are stale because the blocks are coming faster than network latency.
Is TEACOIN actually being computed correctly?
I see this from time to time, a new coin we haven't mined or heard about for a while pops up, bitcoin is paying 29.2110 profit, while TEACOIN is paying 1,232.5435.
I can see why so many more people have been cherry picking TEACOIN for the past day or 3, its paying out 42 X more than the next lowest coin.
Is there any code in place to dis-allow or place a CAP on how high a coin's profit can go? 3 or 4 times higher than the next lowest coin I can understand, but when you get stuff like kittehcoin, AIB, bridgecoin and those type, they almost seem to be in error that they have computed 30-40X higher than the next lowest coin. When miners mine coins not 4X higher but 40X higher, does the pool EVER recap that money, or do those miners end up getting paid 20X+ more than what the pool ends up being able to sell those highly inflated coins at?
Maybe look at some kind of capping code, so the new/oddball coins that get added or computed have an upper limit?
