[EDIT] Nevermind, read below, I was being premature with this post.
No, this is not a scam. I am afraid for my life, because this could perhaps destabilize bitcoin, or stabilize it more, I don't know, I'm sure there are people with tons of bitcoins and they could probably get me or something. That's why I just registered this account and I'm posting over TOR. Please don't try to track me down. Please. I have a loving wife and am a family man.
Again, no, this is not a scam. I just fiddled with my miner and my mh/sec jumped by around 85%. No, no 0.85%, 8.5% or whatever, but by almost double - 85%. I don't get any more stales (rejects) than usual.
I'm now thinking about what to do with my sweaty fingers. I obviously cannot provide any proof because I can only post before/after screenshots and those can be doctored.
Should I release this into public domain? If I do, everyone will have their hashrate almost doubled by tomorrow. What would be the consequences of that?
I need to talk to someone. Please, tell me what to do.
I know what you think - I would probably think the same too: "This Redditor is full of shit". I would really like to be full of shit. Well, ok, not really, since now I earn 85% more. For now. Anyway.
Again, this is not a scam. I won't reveal my methods but no, they don't involve modding your gpu or flashing a bios or whatever, it's just a simple miner change (thankfully the miner is open source) but probably overlooked by many.
