Effort is calculated by the originating pool's calculation of effort
Although it is possible to misrepresent effort this does not appear to be happening
Effort is a representation of (effective hashrate of the miner / effective hashrate of the pool)
Collecting hashrate more efficiently results in better results for the miner
Actual rewards may not be directly attributed to effort
Orphan rate is a representation of the aion network's non-acceptance of the pool's valid solutions
A pool has a lower hashrate thus is expected to natually have a slightly higher orphan rate
When a pool solves a block it has an advantage due to miners getting new work before the other pools recevie the new tip
