Hi all,
I'm wondering what's the weakest hardware (lowest hashrate) that solved a block by solo mining recently (last 3-6 months). I used the search in this forum and also google search but couldn't find an answer to that question. I also checked the stats of the solo.ck.pool but there are probably a lot of solo miners who might not use a pool at all.

It seems quite a lot of people are playing the lottery with very littte hashing power and I'm just curious if any of them got lucky solving a block.

Roman
PS: I just ordered a U3 to play the lottery as well.

Wow that is so nice for an 'old' miner. Thanks for the data. Who knows how much will it take for that same S3 to hit it again...

Thanks for the answer. Actually I read about the Antminer S3 in another thead. I just thought someone with his r-pi controlled batch of U2 might have stumbled over a block too even though the math doesn't leave much room for this to happen.

But even for an Antminer S3 the odds are so small these days. That's why I rather got an Antminer U3. At least I have some work to do to get an keep this little bugger running Smiley
