    Which mining pool is best to use to get the most coins from?

    A pool with more workers and higher pool hash rate or a pool with less workers and lower pool hash rate?

    It's equivalent. A pool with more hashrate will get you more small payments, where a pool with lower hashrate will get you higher payments less often. Does that make sense?

    In the long run, you will get paid the exact same amount for your hashrate at either type of pool.

    Edit: I forgot to add - you really just need to look at pool reliability and fees. Pretty much all the DCR pools have a 1% fee right now. I think there is only one that is a 0.99% fee...

    I recommend the smaller pools. Less frequent (but large) payouts means less in transfer fees. Also makes for a more distributed network. But... It is trivial to set up a pool and scam people. Be aware of the reputation of the pool owner, and only leave what you are willing to risk in their "bank." You can use the dash here to see how the pools stack up against each other. http://d3c.red/
