I am glad that you do think that the block size must be increased, what concerns me is that if we did have a spike in adoption possibly after some global event, then the network would become overloaded. the consequences of this would seriously hamper adoption and public perception. Some of the Core developers like Peter Todd literally do not want the block size increased at all, so that a "fee market" can develop.

... at some point in time, when the adoption is increased and there is demand for that, but just not yet
The network/protocol should be ready for that and react accordingly, but blindly bumping the size is a bad idea.
Please read my proposal at the link provided - it allows for the fee market to develop without much pressure by keeping the blocks almost full. By adding the option for a soft limit from the miners it is even possible to amend it at some degree by mining smaller blocks and shrinking the block size to force more fees, but for that to happen it would require consensus from more than half of the miners, because empty blocks are ignored from the algorithm one can't mine only empty blocks to alter the size (not to mention he will also loose the fees he wants)

EDIT: Ooh and Slush provided the best option for each miner to vote - on another port ... let's say we have the default port 'supporting full size', then we have port 3001 'mine 50% full blocks' and few more for every 10% or 15% steps ... then each miner have the choice for the next block size direction, not only the pools

Is it just me or did hashrate go up by 8 Ph since XT or QT vote can be made on Slush? It was 14 right? Now it is 22...

EDIT: would be nice to know % of the votes...

Yep ... hash rate just shot up +8PH in the last couple of hours ..... hope that comes hand inglove with improved luck to boot!

Well it was 16PH. So +6PH. It was going up from 14PH ever since first XT block was mined...

Its probably trivial, but it was a tad under 15PH (14.86PH and now 23PH+)





EDIT: Seems to be dropping though .....

If you look at the 'hash rate per location' graph both US zones have increased, so it is most likely they have switched to the backup pool ... soon they will go back and away

Is there a way to know XT QT based on this graphs? What is cat? mining.bitcoin.cz without location specific setting? Or is this XT Sad

It's still at almost 24PH at the time of this writing. That's a huge increase from yesterday.

This is not trivial. The question is it new hash rate, or just shifted from another pool?

Slush have added that to the 'hash rate per location' graph. Right now it's around 3PH from 24 total

1000 blocks is almost exactly 7 days.  The first block mined just fell out of the window.

Academic interest in bitcoin only. Not owner, not trader, very skeptical of its longterm success.

So it is a location cat? I see that has changed...

Anyway I think the problem is also that there are no instructions at https://mining.bitcoin.cz/help/#!/get-started/getting_started so I guess some of new hashpower is mining on wrong port...

Something showing in a dashboard would help a lot...

EDIT: I had 2 of the miners on wrong port and I know about that... I guess this is a bigger issue as I thought...

Now the pool is 30 Ph/s.

Can't be Bitmain testing S7s because they would point at their own pool.

Maybe it's a whale come to enjoy the 0% fee?

If it's a whale coming to enjoy the 0% fee I'm surprised it took them so long, and wonder how fast they will leave once the normal fee returns?  Maybe the hashrate will stay in the 25-30 Ph/s range which would work for me!

My guess it that it is ether block withholding attack since we support BIP101(based only on attacks on my XT node not pool data) or new miners coming to mine BIP101 but lack of instruction on pool site put them at wrong port... It started with first XT block. And I moved my miners because of that. But it could also be some miner in US bought a lot of S6+...

I am not usually quick to jump the gun, but you could be right on the pool being a victim of a block withholding attack, only to the extent that pool luck has not been markedly improved by the more than doubling of pool hash ..... then again, it may be ealy days still as its only been a few days since the hashspeed burst.

Why do Slush support XT? Is there an announcement I can read about Slush's instance on XT?

Just to be sure. This is just my paranoia since my XT node is attacked on regular bases... And that is on what I'm basing that. Pool numbers do not support this... Normal variant and luck... But I really can't figure out why are we going up so fast. The only thing I can think of is XT. But numbers don't support that. But they could if new miners don't know about the port...
