- NO! Unknown hashrate is NOT just... unknown. It is a Potential Threat of 51% attack if not proven else.

People that support a privacy coin like to solo mine or mine on private pools, what's wrong with that?

And do you think a 12 fold growth (from a low percentage to high) in a few days is normal organic growth?

Well I do think that the rapid growth is something to think about. Someone moving a big mining farm over from another coin? Someone received a bunch of FPGAs and finished programming a bitstream for CryptoNight variant 2?

I just think it's a bit silly to just see it and immediately scream that it's an attack.

I confirm, it is obviously abnormal even... a bit mysterious and CREEPY: last XMR hardfork made on October 8 2018 had involved Cryptonote v8 (cn/2) mining algorithm that has significant anti-ASIC improvements (I remember it because I did read a discussion on cn/2). Today, just 3 (THREE) months passed. How can one make a huge amount of new ASICs against cn/2 algo?! In 3 months?!

200 EXTRA UNKNOWN MH/s are too huge for even ASICs made in 3 months! We remember, ASICs are HARDWARE not software.

Right now:
https://miningpoolstats.stream/monero

309 MH/s Known hashrate, 200 Mh/s UNKNOWN, total 508 Mh/s

P.S. May it be a bug in a block candidate confirmation unit? Or generally speaking, a bug in XMR source code somewhere... may be in cn/2 algo itself?

Have a look at a graph of the network hashrate over the last 3 months and then things don't look so scary Smiley

There has been major price movement recently in crypto and it seems to coincide with the increased network hashrate. Probably miners of other coins switched to Monero.

As my thoughts, the ladies and gents are mining "cheap" Monerujo before a price peak in april, my guess  Grin Cheesy Wink

Hey Monero peeps!

I wonder if anyone is left from the 2014 days? I saw Risto went down hill... and Cryptonaire or whatever seemed to move on to pumping shit like Verge... Any old official whales left?

I wish you guys well. I was an original supporter but left the coin for unfortunately reasons in 2015 although in the back of my mind, I've been glad to see XMR be one of the few successes and break out over that epic June 2014 top of .01 BTC per coin. That was probably the "pump" that taught me how to trade the hard way, after mostly holding all the way down. Glad to see a UI finally came out, LOL!

Are there any concerns about competition from Grimble-whatever and GRIN and other such coins in 2019? I bought some ZEC months/years back but XMR has royally kicked ZEC's ass, not gonna lie, and Zook hasn't impressed me really in interviews I've heard. I wouldn't mind dumping that shit if I can catch a pump, and getting back on board over here!

I doubt XMR will ever go below that 0.01 price again, unless a better anon takes steem. that pump was sooo epic by 2014 standards, I'm sure it's rock solid support now  Grin right??!

Well there should be a effort to find out if those Hybrid FPGA's add up to this added rate as they do release secret bitstreams and they do have a host service that may not be reporting. Although I don't see why they wouldn't report it as the pow will fork at the next upgrade just for the unknown factor even though IIRC it is a plan anyway. So basically if they report that rate it will not hurt them or change anything and would help them as no-one would be thinking about it being an attack.

It's not even remotely silly, ALL POSSIBLE security threats need to be addressed and EVERY Attack vector (as I warned about json a year before the labs found the vulnerability) investigated. This is not some POS winblows OS, this is a currency that needs to remain unchangeable to serve its only function.

Running around screaming "ATTACK!!!" without knowing what's going on is definitely silly.

That's true, but this is just people mining the coin.

Do you have a link? I had a quick scroll through the MRL page on getmonero.org but didn't find anything.

What else is it going to be? My point was that the coin is meant to be mined.

Maybe my Google-fu is just weak, but I couldn't find anything. That's why I asked for a source.

You should have been more specific, that you meant the chain instead of the network/consensus rules.

Holly Shit! Today, according to
https://miningpoolstats.stream/monero

XMR Network Hashrate = 528 MH/s
Sum Hashrate Belongs To Known Pools = 330 MH/s
UNKNOWN POOLS Hashrate = 528-330 = 198 MH/s ~= 200 MH/s

UNKNOWN POOLS Hashrate / Sum Hashrate Belongs To Known Pools = 0.6 i.e. 60%.

XMR Price = $42

XMR Network Hashrate / XMR Price = 528 / 42 = 12.5.

Exactly year ago, January 2018, XMR Network Hashrate ~= 500 MH/s, XMR price ~= $400,
XMR Network Hashrate / XMR Price ~= 1.25

https://bitinfocharts.com/comparison/monero-hashrate.html#1y
https://bitinfocharts.com/comparison/monero-price.html#1y


You see, 1 year passed, XMR Network Hashrate ~= 500 MH/s as it was, but price dropped catastrophically from $400 to $40,
-------------------

Dear Community Members, do you still believe this is NOT either 51% Attack or Hidden ASICs?!

Brother, one year ago there was absolutely ASICs mining on the network and price was 10x higher. There's little chance it's ASICs imo, more likely FPGAs or some big farm(s) leaving eth ahead of hard fork. Who's going to invest money into development and production of ASICs that will most likely be bricked in less than six months at the (hopefully) tail end of a bear market?

Good point about ETH. They are cutting their mining reward by 30% and it is happening on Wednesday. That's a HUGE amount of hash rate that is being effectively given the boot.

You are using too short time span at looking into this. Check this chart:
https://bitinfocharts.com/comparison/monero-difficulty.html

The hashrate now (to me at least) seems more like return to normal after low hash period than anything else.
