what's OCN?

Overclock.net.  Huge, old PC performance enthusiast community.

They banned discussion of Bitcoin for years, until they had to concede defeat by Honey Badger.

But now they love getting paid XMR to benchmark their 1337 rigz!   Cheesy



That's how I got into crypto (BTC) way back then before the Butterfly Labs preorders -- several ready-to-mine gaming rigs that were collecting dust. I think a lot of us went through this route. I only wish I had saved all those BTCs that were consequently spent on miners and other hardware. But it was so much fun spending them back then (validating its use case) when it was a lot easier to acquire. Grin

But now they love getting paid XMR to benchmark their 1337 rigz!   Cheesy

Huge increase in net hashrate, difficulty was from BOTNET. it's clearly seen on the graph of monero net hqashrate (A sharp increase in network hashrate by more than 10Mh within few hours). Same thing was in May, when was found another trojan. Or do you really think that 200K+ machines was connected to the monero network within a few hours and this is not botnet? LOL.
The sad side of all of this - the fallen profit by 18-20% due to the increased net difficulty on same amount.

It is sad that some people don't understand the only things more fungible than Monero's coins are Monero's PoW hashes.   Cheesy

Is monero still cheap to invest ?

IMO, yes. Kovri I2P, multisig, mobile wallets, and hardware wallets are all in the works and coming "soon." Any one of those will increase usability, which should also cause a rise in price. Here are some links to help you learn more so you can do more research and not just go on my opinion:

Why are you getting defensive instead of explaining this concept? Did I specifically say that "botnets are mining it"? Somebody else brought it up; don't shoot the messenger. I'm merely trying to understand how botnets help to decentralize the network since this subject is often brought up on here? If you can't explain it, why respond to my query in the first place?

I do not mine much and know little about it. I also never heard much that  botnets specially are helping decentralizing the network.

Botnets are just like an other miner securing the network. and I guess are decentralizing it the same way as any other miner. If they mine at smaller pools more then if they are mining at bigger pools.


But my question still stands. Why do you think that this last jump in hashing power is from botnets and not from people that google for Monero this week more then ever in past?



I think you have failed to comprehend the gist of my posts. You seem to keep putting words into my mouth. For the Nth time, I wasn't the one who brought it up and it's definitely not the first time it's been brought up in these forums. It's not my fault if you missed the rest of them. Since you've been defensive about this topic, perhaps you control these botnets yourself and are resorting to misdirection/distraction of my sincere inquiry to understand the concept (botnets help decentralize the network). If you don't have an objective explanation, then you don't. It's OK. Your assertion that the current spike is not caused by botnets is non sequitur. My question was very specific.



Ofcourse I dont have any objective explanations since I think that botnets decentralize network same way as any other miner.  
All botnets are under my control. And I mean it all , also your refrigerator. Your eggs will spoil soon, so better go make some pancakes.

Is there any benefit for the average user that simply hold Monero in the wallet?

Traditional financial institutions (banks, investment houses, etc.) do that but not Monero.

It depends. If you're asking if the value of Monero will go up then I'd say yes, I believe there's some pump worthy things coming soon.

Ofcorse it is. Noone can take it from you. It is yours. A fungible cryto currency you can send anywhere on the world.  What else do you want beside financial freedom?

Ofcorse it is. Noone can take it from you. It is yours. A fungible cryto currency you can send anywhere on the world.  What else do you want beside financial freedom?

Liberty to create value is not a get-rich-quick scheme.

Security against extortionists does not yeild a rentier's coupon.

In each of these dilemmas, Monero offers the former, but lacks appeal for those seeking the latter.

Personally, I wouldn't have it any other way.  It is only the uncertainty of woolier, more timid minds that creates a mispricing to be exploited by those whose vision is bold and clear.




Give a man a fish and he eats for a day.  Give a man a Poisson distribution and he eats at random times independent of one another, at a constant known rate.
