In response to block #682170, mined by MARA Pool, I'm announcing a project I've been working on. I hope this brings transparency into mining pool transaction selection.

miningpool.observer

This compares block templates generated by my node to the blocks mined by pools.

For example, it becomes apparent that #682170 did NOT filter transactions.

All transactions missing from the block had only been in my mempool for a few seconds. None are sanctioned.

Differences between templates and blocks are to be expected!

This is inspired by blog.bitmex.com/bitcoin-miner- , which is a good read for everyone interested in this topic.

I'd like to thank the people who have provided feedback on this project. You shall remain anonymous, as I don't want to imply endorsement.
