solo.mining-pool.io

No but if what I'm reading in ck solo thread is true. You weren't solo mining at all.  He is stealing your hashes and pointing them to fupool with ck proxy software.  Looks like you have been scammed. If you want to mine solo. You should be on solo.ck. And btw I found both blocks back in early October with two dif s9. Also one has no advantage to withhold on a pool that doesn't share rewards. 

i wonder why there isn't a mega solo pool. Min to join is 6th on single connection.  Imagine how many solo winners there would be with 300 ph.  Maybe that would be a great promotion for a pool. One day out of week swap to solo and take a chance with all pool hashrate. Could help a lot of small miners out tremendously

Best Regards

Yes I was scammed.  After my discussion with Kano I see what went on.    I do solo mine at cksolo. But because of recent poor shares from my miners. I solo hopped. But I found that scam site and immediately was hitting good shares,  so I mined there about 3 days and hit that block.  Back at cksolo now.
Thanx for the info D57heinz

Stratum decode indicates solo.mining-pool.io:3333 is proxy mining to username "zhangjia90" on f2pool. Maybe you can contact f2pool for more information about them.

Yep coinbase sig is what I'm looking at from the stratum decode, so guess he must have changed the username to try and hide.

You are looking at the wrong block.  Block 437887 clearly has the following coinbase signature:

No, I'm not looking at the block at all, I'm looking at the coinbase sig given by his stratum server.

This guy is being pretty obvious about what he's doing.

He has a repo on github with the proxy code. The github account is the same name as the listed pool operator at the bottom of the pool page.

Used to demostrate how pools steal your hash by renaming worker names and redirecting the hashrate.

Well shit if that's the case then why is it not on top line in red on first page.  Seems like a funny way to scam someone   In the end he is still a scammer we have plenty of examples of scammers without his "help"

Well since it's the same domain I'm presuming it's the same person.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1667999.0

So contact him and tell him to give you 12.5 BTC

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=561397

Edit: as per the earlier comment, his bitbucket account is:
https://bitbucket.org/ctubio/

Not sure why your acting like it wasn't your fault? It was your code, and you purposely had it to mine for you, and were probably hoping that you would have never found a block on your "pool". If you want to resolve things, pay up the ~12.5BTC you owe to the guy that found the block.
