Hi there,

Does anyone know which statistical distribution bitcoin mining is following? I've been looking at the output from jgarzik's cpuminer, and I expected the “PROOF OF WORK RESULT: true (yay!!!)” lines to approximate a Poisson distribution (completely random, rare event). Possion distributed data has same mean and variance, but the data I'm looking at has a variance of appr. mean².

Anyone?

Cheers,
