And the hash-rate is btw excellent: we are now at block 16101! So only 27 more blocks to go before the drop.

Well, the hashrate is a lot lower than the initial mining-pump, and there are no news from Freicoin, so to me its dying.

The average blocks per day while Bitcoin has been at its all time high is 4.3+ (from 1. March). Anyone mining in that period can safely be assumed as die-hard Freicoiners (and we have even had serious DOS attacks on the main freicoin pool site Coinotron in the same period).

So when the difficulty drops to 1/4 these same miners will generate 17+ blocks per day. But more miners will be attracted by the lower difficulty,  and a conservative estimate is doubling of the hash-rate. Then we have 34+ blocks per day. This block frequency is sufficient for again making the Freicion network practical.

The hash-rate is really picking up, we are now at 16115!

Let me up the prize by 20k FRC to celebrate the drop.

(it would probably be fairer to split the price between the two people who are closest the the actual date from below and above)

also another 5k FRC for the one who mined that block. (179fozsLfBPfg6mvhe63J95ySeANVZWYuM)

Congratulation.  This is much faster than expected, likely due to the renewed interests across all Alt cryptocurrencies, even long dead ones like coiledcoins.  Any idea about the current hash rate of the FRC network, post difficulty drop?

based on the block generation rate, the hashpower must be quite close to the actual difficulty, so it's now at about 6-7 blocks/hour.

16127,*16128*,16129 were mined by the Coinotron pool  Smiley

I hopped on the pool for a bit to help push it over, I have switched to solo since the difficulty drop.

You can see their pool stats here:

Freicoin is the last pool listed.

 Cool Congrats with the drop to all, contributors and guessers alike!

The hash-rate at Coinotron is very high, I really hope we are not stuck in a Phugoid http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phugoid with difficulty overshoots and subsequent dramatic drops...
