    So I was browsing around on http://p2pool.pl/dash-p2p.php and happened to take a look at the largest single entity on p2pool... http://82.200.205.55:7903. The node has existed since 4/13 and has only ever had one active miner who has been collecting a significant amount of all p2pool earnings. A big supporter I assumed, then I thought twice when I saw the flag on the node front page:
    Special miner + config needed: "vertminer --scrypt-vert -Q 0 -o 82.200.205.55:7903 -u YourDASHPayoutAddress -p x"

    What? Vertminer? Does anyone here know what this is about? Is this miner submitting useful work to the network or does it just look like it? I havent crunched the numbers but surely this miner should have solved a few blocks by now, is there any way to check if they have or not?

    all fine, miner submitting useful work to the network

    "vertminer --scrypt-vert -Q 0 -o 82.200.205.55:7903 -u YourDASHPayoutAddress -p x"
    its only html text on web page.
