Now that the disadvantages of mining pools are obvious, let’s go through what you can do, even if you want to mine with a pool.
- Mine with a smaller pool, the smaller and the more pools there are, the more decentralized and resilient the network will be.
- If you are delegating your coins on a PoStake chain, it would be very beneficial for the network for you to delegate you coins to a smaller, yet reliable validator.
- The best solution for miners is, just mining by yourself. This strategy could potentially cause you to lose some profits, but at least, you can sleep easy at night knowing you are using the blockchain as Satoshi intended.
