I'd prefer simple approach of giving MN 40-50% of mined coins - that would make me to invest another 2000$ to get a MN - and would be the interim step before ultimatelly cutting the mining altogether and shifting the processing entirely to MN.Your idea is brilliant. Though I'm not well versed in P2pool it does sound like your idea does wonders for distribution. I'm not certain I'm advocating abolishing POW either, yet. Just a cool train of thought at the moment. It just doesn't seem like we need the miners, could do wonders for security, greatly increase ROI for MNs etc. Also, if Evan implemented the ability to generate a key for a 100 drk vin, where 10 people could combine their 100 drk trustlessly for a MN, it would help address the distribution issue of abolishing POW.
