Non-portable plots (OG) are all plots that were created before the update expected by the end of May. These cannot be used with pools, but can continue to self-farm.
Portable plots (NFT) can be created after the blockchain that happened on July. These can be plotted to a smart contract, which gives them additional functionality. Farmers can assign these plots to a pool, change what pool they are assigned to, or continue to self-farm.
Pools are made up of a group of people farming together. When one of the farmers in the pool wins a block, everybody shares the reward.
The farmer that wins the block gets 0.25 XCH, the remaining 1.75 XCH is split among the rest of the pool, minus the pool fee. They will receive a cut of the 1.75 XCH equal to their share in pool space.
You can join a pool if you still have non-portable plots, however only new plots will be use to farm to a pool. Both type of plots can co-exist.
Farmers have been choosing to gradually move from OG plots to NFT.
Yes. Changing pools costs 1 mojo (0.000000000001 XCH). For instructions on how to do that, click here.
You can join the pool with a single portable plot.
Launcher ID is how a farmer is identified for each Plot NFT. That is a long hexadecimal string and not user friendly. For easier identification in our pool we allow users to set a friendly name for the explorer, an alias for your launcher ID.
