they experiment possible exploits in the protocol.

they ran a lot of client from the same ip with superb network speed.

a lot of nodes connected almost exclusively to them, so they got all the notifications and forwarded them.

so it looked like all blocks came from them.

they hoped, that they get the block reward for that.

seems they did not really read the protocol.

Seems you are mistaken.


Well I was wondering how long it would take for people to notice. It's me

And no I am not putting lots of hashing power to the network, notice that it just says "relayed by" and not "mined by". I'm performing some measurements, paper is due in a few weeks.

Yup, just here to clean up misunderstandings: we are not mining, we are just doing some research on the network itself.

The reason we show up so often is that in order to do our measurements we are highly connected, and while we're at it we facilitate the information flow on the network by relaying information.
