I saw a few days ago while getting my miner figured out someone mention on Reddit plans for a Monero fork that only allows solo mining to prevent 51% attacks from pools. I'm thinking it might be profitable to mine with a high end cpu. Does anyone know what the name of that coin should be when forked?
It might be Wownero ?
wowario, one of the Wownero coders, was recently asking on IRC about a proposed system to sign a coinbase with the output secret key, which is a way to allow a miner to steal a pool's coinbase, and therefore disincentivize pool mining (there are ways around that, mostly for the pool to require a deposit, but that makes pool mining less attractive from a miner's point of view).
