I never saw anything concrete related to this so I dare to ask here. First, my situation: I'm currently mining solo, on a private pool, with roughly 350Th/s. That to be increased soon with another ~200Th/s. I know my odds, right now, from the plenty online calculators, I should solve a block roughly once a month at this diff.
But, would either or both of these following measures increase my chances?
- First is running the pool bitcoin daemon as a full node with port 8333 open to the world.
- The second is lowering the
relayfee which is default to 0.00001000B.
