Not pools.  Solo mining mostly I think.

i wonder if deepbit being down will cause a huge difficulty decrease. if enough people don't switch there miners to different pools i could happen.

it looks like the overall speed hasnt decreased much yet. so seems like most are staying on top of things.

Tips, donations, and bribes welcome:

slush down too?

The website is.  Miners are still getting work.

The interesting question is whether the parts that acknowledge that work and account for it are down with the website or if they are separate.

I was a few confirmations away from receiving a payout at Slush's pool.

I'm leaving the miners up until I see if that comes through or not.

EDIT: And just after posting this the website is back up.  The work of my miners was recorded during the website outage, and two blocks were found since the time of the last successful refresh.

I hope pool owners will take some precautions now..
btw. how can one stop a ddos attack? or defend against it?

firewalls can be optimized and improved to prevent denial of service attacks, perhaps bitcoind could be improved a bit too to decipher good from bad tcp packets on port 8332

It's a clever idea to DDOS the major pools in order to decrease difficulty.  However, is that sustainable?  A DDOS would have to continue for a day or more in order to impact difficulty, I'm guessing.  Can anyone provide some math to show how difficulty would be impacted by 50% of the miners were offline for 1 hour, 12 hours, 24 hours, 48 hours, etc?

After difficulty decreases, watch to see which major new miner or pool comes online.  Perhaps they were responsible.

I always thought an easier way to manipulate difficulty would be:  Legitimately take yourself offline, let difficulty decrease, then come back online to generate more coins at lower difficulty.  When difficulty raises, take yourself offline again.  An entire mining pool could do this.  Again, math would be needed to reveal the profitability of such a move.  Mining time lost while offline during high difficulty could be made up by increased profits while online during low difficulty?

That should not be a problem. Often, botnets are used to facilitate DDoS attacks. Since the infected computers are most likely spread all around the world, there will always be enough of them online to continue the attack.


After difficulty decreases, watch to see which major new miner or pool comes online.  Perhaps they were responsible.

Well, that would be too obvious. I don't think anyone would be this stupid, but I have underestimated people's stupidity before...

But why would you take yourself offline? Even if the increased profits during low-difficulty phases would make up for the profits lost while being offline, it would be more profitable to take out another pool. If another pool goes down, you still benefit from decreased difficulty, but you do not have to stop mining.
And since you can buy access to botnets, there just has to be somebody who is convinced that the additional bitcoins he creates will be worth more than the dollars he paid for the botnet. Or maybe he even paid for the botnet in bitcoins...


Anyway, I will check on deepbit tomorrow. Had my laptop mining for them and was less than 0.011 bitcoins away from payout Sad

I am happily mining @ Bitcoins.lc  Grin

If this leads to difficulty decrees, then AWESOME!

If I helped you in some way, and you feel obligated to do so, you can tip me some coin!
