[offtopic]
Bitfury has been contradictory in his posts about whether he's associated with ghash or not.
He's been associating himself with sort of "ideological" mining, being committed to network security, while his chip-making bussiness is considered controversial and greedy (but that's the market I must admit).

(It's already a common practice to sarcastically call him "ideological miner") Smiley

His russian associated ASIC distributor Metabank is commonly compared to BFL in their bussiness model (though I personally think they are not as bad).

But it's not analysis, just emotions people express in russian subforum.

Im surprised this is not causing any more discussion. The largest pool appears to be double spending, and everyone is mum? Has this been debunked or what?

It seems that everyone is busy with their Jupiters and Saturns. The related topic grows 10 pages per day.

I won't be staying mum for much longer - if they don't respond soon to this and other concerns me & many other people have about their whole set-up, I'll be posting an open letter to them on their service thread demanding that they explain this and other issues. The more I look at this thing, the more alarm bells start ringing  Sad

Personally, if I were publicly accused of a scam, I would have addressed the accusation immediately, with proof, in order to clear my name completely. Saying & doing nothing could be considered an admission of guilt, and usually is.

I am not sure if they bother at all. They have their own source of hashers, so even if all side miners quit they survive.

ghash is no longer reporting their hashrate. Maybe its a bug because they passed 1PH, but I also noticed the past days there where wild swings, hashrate would drop 500TH or more. Could be technical issues, but after reading this, I do wonder if its not something more nefarious.

Anyway, regardless if there is something going on, Id like to urge miners to point their hashrate to some smaller pools than ghash and btcguild. Its just not good for bitcoin to have 2 entities with almost 30% of the hashrate each, and this gives more credence to the "selfish miner attack" recently published.

That's true of course, but at least no mislead miners/investors will get scammed, which is the most important thing.

this is serious, this must be addressed ASAP, you have to put this topic on  Development & Technical Discussion board, this is not the right place, very few people visit this sub-forum.

I will copy the OP and add make a new post there.


edit: here is the link to to a new topic with the exact copy of your post https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=327767.0

Originally the thread was in the Mining subforum, but moderator moved it here.
Thanks.

On a side note, I posted this in several cex.io threads I just saw how delusional some people can be.

This sounds like a serious problem, I'm concerned no one is talking about this on http://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/
