A lot of pools have been DDOSed lately, including ones like Bitparking which aren't even that big.

Any speculation as to whats funding these attacks?

I have an article on this I will post in a few hours when Im home and can grab the link from tablets bookmarks.

Its somewhat how the stock market works, specific beings with higher powers can manipulate and contribute to such DOS attacks

higher powers meaning $$?

do you think the botnet owners are personally getting involved?   Huh

Dacentec Dedicated Servers (Lenoir, NC, USA) from $25/mo & Time4VPS Storage VPS' (Vilnius, Lithuania) from €18/qtr & Hetzner's serverbidding, from ~€20/mo -- had bitcoin nodes & p2pool (dacentec, hetzner) for several years on these.  Only two are affiliate links too, kek! -------  Feel free to join my G2A Goldmine Pyramid Scheme Team, or possibly even buy a Steam game from there.  Maybe.
