I know mining is kinda dieing, but it'd be great if we any delegate could setup an autoexchange to ARK.
For example there is Zpool, Blazepool and Miningpoolhub which allow you to mine any profitable coin and get paid in BTC or your chosen altcoin.
Since ARK is not mineable, those pools don't support payments in ARK, they only pay people in what they mine.
But I think this would work great if done by a delegate and it'd help boost ARK's price since there'd be automatic buys from the market.
I believe that a delegate could share 75%-80% of their forging and with the rest 20% cover the transaction costs of the exchanges, the robot's cost and ofcourse keep a profit.
It would be a combination of smart contracts and ACES (in a decentralized and automated way) ? I guess it's doable since many brilliant minds work for Ark, it would be just long to deploy imo
No need for smart contracts, pools do it with all other coins by just showing you the coins you've mined and their relative price to BTC (or you chosen altcoin). After the mined coins are confirmed, they send the coins to the market and when they are sold you get the BTC in for which your mined coins were sold (though ofcourse they steal you on that amount).
An ARK multi-pool would be similar, someone sets a pool which supports multiple algos and coins, they group the mined coins of multiple users together in order to reduce the fees and an they sell them in an exchange for ARK. Ofcourse this whole procedure must be automatic, but it's already working and I think the code used by zpool and the like is open source too; but not sure.
