Darkcoin mining pools

DarkCoin is a good choice for CPU only miners. DarkCoin uses a new chained hashing algorithm approach, with many new scientific hashing algorithms for the proof-of-work. This is so that the processing distrubution is fair and coins will be destributed in much the same way Bitcoins were originally. No premine, fair launch.
