wouldn't it be quite easy to add such a feature in minebitshares.com? @ nethyb
Yes, the pool is setup in such a way that it's trivial to change the pool payout bitAsset. However currently you can only pay out in one asset i.e. either bitUSD or bitSilver, bitCNY etc.
The current challenge with paying out in bitSilver or bitGold is a lack of market liquidity resulting in huge spreads i.e. I need to exchange the BTC earned from the alt-coins to bitSilver. And there is no easy way to do that currently with resonable spreads.
And that's primarily why I agreed with bytemaster to focus our efforts initally on BitUSD, as it has most liquidity and we can help to provide additional liquidity for that market.
I've had discussions with both cryptosmith.info and metaexchange on how the pool could integrate/collaborate and intend to do so at some point,
we'd offer the miners the choice of which asset they would like their payments to be paid - whatever metaexchange supports.
I agree with everyone that crypto mining real PM's would bring a lot of publicity to Bitshares
But first we need to get minebitshares known to the mining world... You can help right now by following me on twitter @minebitshares and do the occasion re-tweet etc
And don't forget to vote for the new minbitshares-reloaded delegate http://bitsharesblocks.com/delegate/info?name=minebitshares-reloaded
to help support the pool development
