Someday a bunch of home miners would find it economically feasible to hire another bunch of people to blow up a couple multi-petahash mines and drop the difficulty a few notches...

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. The most secure are full nodes like Bitcoin Core, but full nodes are more resource-heavy, and they must do a lengthy initial syncing process. As a result, lightweight clients with somewhat less security are commonly used.

So you really think attacking a major mine is worth while to do?

Or are your just trolling?

It is easy to say blow up a 40 megawatt farm like bitfury' s in Russia, but it is wrong to say it.

Also we just don't need  more terrorism in the world.

People making real efforts to be nice to each could go a long way here.

For instance any or all of the big three could sell some chips to developers .

Allowing more wide spread  mining equipment choice.

This would be a lot easier then attacking farms of miners in Russia

so their aim is just to drop the difficulty a few notches?
why don't they  just extort the mining company and bomb if don't get what they want.

Don't blame this on movies.  I watch movies and that is still a horrible idea even to say.

It not only is stupid and could hurt people... it's plain wrong.  Not to mention chances are if BTC mines are targets...  that is not good PR for BTC and it goes down.

I am watching a huge fire in a hotel in Abu Dhabi .

No one knows if it is terror or a simple fire.

I am tired of watching terror events.

Not sure about this event.

I just rather people try to get along.

while this is feasible, especially if you consider government as a form of terrorism, and they hate bitcoin(not all of them, but still...), aren't terrorist using bitcoin? how this is not going to hurt their business

I hope not as it would be a bad article for general public.  Imagine general public who only know's bitcoin is money, don't know much about it at all.  If TV articles or web articles link Bitcoin to "bad" things it would be bad overall for bitcoin community.   

It is hard to push the positives of Bitcoin if a situation like OP mentioned happens.  So I hope it is not used for that.

@philipma1957 if there is profit to be made there will be people willing to do anything for it. Terrorism is only one way. Though what op describes is more like sabotaging the competition. It has no political goal.

I hope not as it would be a bad article for general public.  Imagine general public who only know's bitcoin is money, don't know much about it at all.  If TV articles or web articles link Bitcoin to "bad" things it would be bad overall for bitcoin community.

Articles linking bitcoin to bad things happen all the time. And like Amph said terrorists are said to use bitcoin. For example isis apparently uses bitcoin to store its cash. Or for receiving funding or something. http://www.foxnews.com/tech/2015/11/25/isis-parks-its-cash-in-bitcoin-experts-say.html Don't know how effective that is in scaring people away from bitcoin though.

KnCMiner is about to take over the network, so, target them.

Quote

What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills.

I am trained in guerilla warfare and I’m the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words.

You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my bare hands.

Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue.

But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it.

You’re fucking dead, KnCMiner

A silly idea but there's the germ of an interesting thought in there. I wonder how many significant farms are paying attention to security. If coins are't directly accessible they are vulnerable to extortion attempts. If the farm is torched it's not going to do their bottom line any good.

Yeah bitfury says they  have a new 40 megawatt farm  and the stat of the network show more then 250ph added to the network since they say it fired up.

So most likely they have 180 to 220ph of that hash increase.

So this means 25% of the entire network is in one farm one location. Not so good .

 Of course every night before you lay you head to sleep you could hope that it suffers a failure and the network drops off 200ph.
