Did any of you find a block with solo mining in 2015? How much power did you have when you found a block? How many BTC did you earn from transaction fees?

Check out -ck's solo pool, or there is a thread here about someone finding a block with his antminer;

Thanks but I didn't see any real person who mined in that thread as the title says "anonymous solo bitcoin mining". I'm looking for personal experiences rather than just block finder's IP. I guess people don't care or want to remain anonymous.

You didn't look very hard. Numerous people have found blocks on that thread and did not remain anonymous, announcing who they were and what they were mining with.

Many, many solo block finders from ck's solo pool.  A few member have even found more than one.  There was one guy who found like 5 in a row earlier this spring/summer, it was amazing to see.  Most use rented hash I think.

Here's a few, read through the thread and there are many more:

This guys started a thread to solo mine one S3 at ck's pool, and he even found a block: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1132914.0.
