Note 1:  Even in the extremely unlikely scenario that all of the major mining pools switched to Bitcoin Cash, the blockchain would not "stop".  The speed of blocks would be expected to decrease until the next difficulty adjustment period, after which they would be expected to be mined every ten minutes again.

Note 2:  The hashrate and the hashrate compared to Bitcoin Cash are both publicly available information.

Note 3:  Variance is a thing.

note 0: look at who is making the topic (you can check the post history if you don't know him).

note 0.1: this is not the first time this happened and won't be the last because simply there is no rule for time between blocks apart from the 2016 in about 2 weeks.

When he says the Blockchain stopped to work, it has to be taken at the second level of humor. It's a sarcasm. Of course, He knows the blockchain didn't stop to work. He is not so dumb to really believe such thing. You guys are really sensible

I beg your pardon.
The blockchain stopped working a few years ago when bitcoin hit 1000$ and since then he is unemployed and spending all his money on drugs and (!).

Now, to all the others who already started another altcash BTC war, it is not about the hashrate.
The hashrate doesn't matter really. Even if all miners by some miracle would switch to altcash the blocks will still be mined until the last cpu miner stops.
The blocks will arrive a little late as difficulty adjusts but that's all.
And with bitcoin surging over 4000$ I doubt there aren't hundred of miners being plugged in each day.

This happens from time to time due to sheer (un)luck. Chill out.
