MARA Pool mined its first 'clean' block today.
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.
This compares block templates generated by my node to the blocks mined by pools.
This is inspired by https://blog.bitmex.com/bitcoin-miner-transaction-fee-gathering-capability/ , 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.
