The reason I ask is because it looks like Bitcoin is becoming more decentralized.

http://blockchain.info/pools?timespan=14days

I remember when there was fear Deepbit alone would go >50%.  
Then it was Deepbit + Slush > 50%.  
Then Deepbit + Slush + BTC Guild >50%.
Now we are getting close to top 4 combined being <50%.

If p2pool (and smaller pools) could pull another 500 MH/s from the big 4 then even the top 5 combined wouldn't be 50%.  Smiley

It is a common myth that Bitcoin is ruled by a majority of miners. This is not true. Bitcoin miners "vote" on the ordering of transactions, but that's all they do. They can't vote to change the network rules.

I was delighted to see p2pool on there and deepbit declining.  Also curious about their methodology and accuracy.
