So much paranoia, im not saying that the u.s federal system doesnt have it out for bitcoin, but this ddos is NOT related to them or druglords, or any other hairbrained bs you guys can cook up.

Its just some dood that wanted to drop the difficulty some, and to retaliate against pool owners for not letting his bnet mine on their pools. (This is fact.)

Before you attack the OP too much, please remember that he is a confused 17 year old who still lives at home. He has had very little life experience, and his views of the world are gleaned from Ayn Rand books, wikipedia pages and conspiracy novels.

Don't be too hard on him.

I read something very similar elsewhere, I think that is all it is.   Just in case though for the rest of you, use this

The Best Attack is for them to simply buy 100s of billions worth of bitcoins in a short amount of time while giving it massive amounts of positive media attention.
Of course they wouldn't get a return on their investment, but its not about money it's about power.

Here are the results:
      1) Current bitcoiners (very small population) would be so overcome with their wealth that it would be almost impossible to focus on improving bitcoin.
      2) Bounties would cease to exist entirely or become very rare.
      3) The huge spike in price would attract the whole world to get involved in bitcoins causing the bitcoin price to continue launch to high heaven.
      4) it peaks
      5) We watch a gradual price decline for the next several years with one negative news report after another (remember: they own the media).
      6) This new wealth attracts every schemer, con-man, and hacker in existence to attack every bitcoin web site for personal gain - which is easy considering most of the services are new and vulnerable.
      7) All new bitcoiners (which would be very large portion of the bitcoiners population) turn very pessimistic and negative towards the project and slowly give up one by one.
      Cool The media circulates stories of how it is the money of drug lords and terrorist and start rumors of legislation.
      9) Thank goodness "Bitcoin is dead and behind us" attitude - it was just a fad.
      10) It lives on as niche-techy-nerdy currency that has little chance of rising again to challenge their systems - they just ignore us from then on.

Sound familiar ?!? Shocked


Thank god for the incremental halving of the block reward  Wink

First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they keep laughing, then they start choking on their laughter, and then they go and catch their breath. Then they start laughing even more.

These attackers, they are probably highly paid or have some other incentive bigger than we know. Bitcoin threatens the whole monetary system. A fight like this is to be expected.

We should expect bigger hits in the future. Be prepared. My words will prove true all in good time.

Update: For those who don't know, pools are being knocked down by DDOS attacks. There's no profit lying in plain sight with this one folks unlike the exchanges. There is an entity out there that wants this whole thing neutered.

You need to just stop fucking posting. You are a dumbass kid who knows nothing.

The best form of "attack" is not being so damn STUPID all the time.

Yes I'm talking to you Atlas.

Your smarter than this kid.. Stop with the ADD and GET TO WORK.
