Finally, pretty good explanation of the much-hyped "selfish miner attack". Which makes it clear that such attack could never actually happen in the real world. Only possible in a hyperactive imagination of dishonest "Cornell researchers". Whose only concern seems to be getting their 5 minutes of fame by igniting a worldwide "OMG Bitcoin fatally broken!" hysteria...

All that negative hysteria which has lead to Bitcoin breaking its all-time high? Sounds like it's not working very well.

Voluntaryism- The belief that ALL human interactions should be free of force, fraud and coercion.
Taxation is Theft; War is Murder; Incarceration is Kidnapping; Spanking is Assault; Federal Reserve Notes are Counterfeiting

I guess this was just a fancy "Bitcoin is Dead" headline that we've all come to know and love. (As we continue to exist and shrug off these alarmist hype stories.)
