OCEAN Pool Now Offers Multiple Block Template Policies For Miners

“A decentralized Bitcoin is a Bitcoin where miners decide what goes in blocks, not pools. OCEAN’s ultimate goal is to make this a reality, and today we take one step closer to our vision of decentralized block template construction,” announced OCEAN.”Available immediately, OCEAN is offering ๐—บ๐˜‚๐—น๐˜๐—ถ๐—ฝ๐—น๐—ฒ ๐—ฏ๐—น๐—ผ๐—ฐ๐—ธ ๐˜๐—ฒ๐—บ๐—ฝ๐—น๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ฒ ๐—ฝ๐—ผ๐—น๐—ถ๐—ฐ๐—ถ๐—ฒ๐˜€, giving miners control over what blocks they are mining.”The three options are:

1) OCEAN Recommended (most real financial transactions and least spam, based on Bitcoin Knots)
2) Bitcoin Core with the โ€œOrdisrespectorโ€ spam filter
3) Unmodified Bitcoin Core (same as other pools with fewest financial transactions and most spam)”OCEAN will continue its 0% promotional pool fee for options 1 & 2 while there will be a competitive pool fee of 2% for option 3.””Our fees are structured to incentivize miners to make choices that benefit the Bitcoin network in the long term.”

These changes follow a recent OCEAN post-launch controversy where in a bid to ‘filter’ certain ordinals transactions the mining pool also filtered out Whirlpool tx0 transactions.
