[quote=“mhps, post:33, topic:2189”]First remember that minting is unspent output (utxo) based, not address based.
A utxo’s ability to mint in a unit of time maxes out at 90 days. But if you have more coins in the utxo, the ability is proportionally bigger. So having more PPCs in a utxo still helps.
If one utxo in an address finds a block, your wallet will mop up all small utxos in the same address and use them to form the minting output (with a max). This helps to collect small changes and dust in your wallet. So it helps to put your little pieces in an address that has a big chunk of utxo. You might lose privacy in doing so because the blockchain will show that all these pieces belong to the same person.
I remember kac- or mably or peerchemist proved that you can merge small changes and dusts to a found stake from a different address actually. It needs some work.
If the minting output is too big (currently 100 PPC ish) the output will be split to two so that they can mint separately, adding security to the network.[/quote]
So, work with me here. If I say, put 50 PPC into an address on day 0. And between Day 0 and Day 90, I also add some other smaller chunks of PPC, say 3-4 PPC. If on Day 120, the 50 PPC mints, and there’s 5 PPC in that address that was added on Day 30, that 5 PPC will also mint? Am I correct in that?
So for “smaller” minters, the key isn’t necessarily to merge all your PPC into one transaction in one address, but to have at least one transaction in one address that’s large enough to mint, with smaller transactions permitted in the same address.
