if anyone has the ability to also dDos ghash.io and 50btc right now.... they could control 51% of the network.....
DDoSing half of the network does not give you control of the other half..

no, but i bet it upped the income of those who weren't attacked.

That's not true. Think about it: if the network hash rate (say) halves, then all network blocks (on average) will be solved at half the rate (20 minutes instead of 10 minutes at the default rate) but any particular hash rate that somebody can throw onto the network is going to earn the same that it did before at the current difficulty (obviously, people who are not hashing because they're attacked are going to earn nothing). DDoSing affects the block rate of the entire network, it doesn't affect an individual miner who is still hashing.

Another way to think about it: if BTC Guild's rate halves (and you keep hashing because you switched to the private server), then your payment per shift will double (because there are half as many miners to share the reward between), but there will be half as many blocks to pay for them, so overall earnings are the same.

The main effect of DDoSing is that the next difficulty rise will be lower, but every miner is affected by that in the same way.

I can't help but think that having fewer people trying to find the block that i'm working on will give me more time to find it. I won't have to start over on a new block because some one found the current one. yeah, i know, it doesn't work that way, but i can't help but think it does make some difference. It is the fault of that stupid butterfly in china. Tongue

"Sorry, but there shouldn't have been any point during this attack when you couldn't hash (apart from the few tens of seconds taken for the rollover). My miners went from BTC Guild to 50BTC to Slush without missing a heartbeat. Now I've manually configured the private server as first in the failover chain (last is solo mining).

You need to make sure you have an effective failover strategy in place."


Can't speak for anyone else, but my miner (BFL Single w/ BGFminer on Ubuntu) refuses to stay connected to any pool besides BTC Guild, that's why I was on it.  The only other one that works is BTCDig and that is a really small pool, that I can't seem to stay connected to today either.

As of 1:16pm PST all miner went to failover pools again.   The pressure on the servers continues.  I'll check back for updates.

Eleuthria: pm sent for private IP?

p2pool hashrate has spiked.  Lots of folks are jumping there.  Makes it hard for a little guy like me (12gh/s) to use when I need a 86k share to get on the chain.  Expected time to share: 18.6hours.  Sad

I really wish the bitcoin community would rise up and find out who is behind this attack, because it would be really interesting to find out.

It won't even let us connect. Emailed you Eleuthria, hopefully can gain access to private server.

Yea. Looks like a classic block grab.
