As of now Solidcoin.info and solidcointalk are offline. it _appears_ to be a ddos attack on them, but is there any proof its not the stabilizing pet botnet that we all know as "8=====D" from the early days of the block explorer? Did Realsolid finally stop financing his chain and therefore lost control on it? Appears more likely now that he was giving up supporting his own piece of copy&paste and stopped worrying.
My prediction is a massive sell on BTCe now that Solidcoin is finally dieing.

BEX took the responsibility for the attacks on BTC-e apparently, in retaliation for RS/CH/whoever calling BEX a n00b, but who knows what's actually going on.

It's also claimed that everything related to SC2 is being DDoS'd too, from the trusted notes to the block explorer to the forums to solidcoin.info.

Wow that is a whole lot of conclusion jumping going on.

Personally I think SolidCoin (is it a scam? ) will be around for a long time.  Every time you think it is gone it will pop up to annoy the community.   Kinda like digital syphillis.

Would not have been the first occurence of such a thing.

There have been enough examples of when pool owners banned a botnet the botnets turned against them. And it has been pretty obvious that Solidcoin2 had its "pet" botnet in the beginning to boost Hash and stabilize coin generation (and also to ddos the big 5 btc pools)... so, who says it didnt turn its back on Solidcoin now?

Well, he deserves it there's no question there, but hopefully no "innocents" get taken out in the process.

This will end when the Solidcoin community decides Coinhunter doesn't speak for them.

Coinhunter holds the private keys to the SC tyrant-nodes. He will always speak for them.
It is why we refer to them as sockpuppets.

Why?   If they die from something as simple as this, they should not exist.  You can't take down bitcoin with a DDOS attack.

I'm into creating universes, smiting people, writing holy books and listening to prayers.

I'm not concerned with the DDOS from a technical standpoint, and actually, they're good in a way, since they force devs to up the ante a bit.  Rather, these childish wars as whole between competing coins don't paint a pretty picture for merchants who just want to do good, clean business.

Imagine China and India duking it out, bombing each others' mints, and burning their banks to the ground. Who's currency do you want to use? Neither? You want to stick with USD?? What's wrong with you? lol

I'm happy to report that despite this lame DDOS attempt on a couple of Solidcoin websites, the Solidcoin network is running perfectly with no issues. Just sent a test transaction which confirmed within 3 minutes. As most of you will know, the websites are in no way connected with the Solidcoin network itself, so a DDOS on them has no effect.

The two major Solidcoin exchanges, slc24.com and btc-e.org are also working well with no issues.

So no, Solidcoin has not been shut down.

Looks like the site is up to me :- http://solidcoin.info

If people want to ddos the SolidCoin websites then there isn't much that can be done. DDoS are temporary and have nothing to do with the decentralized SolidCoin network. Over 1500 different SolidCoin nodes have existed in the past 3 weeks, try DDoSing them all. Tongue

I hear that SolidCoin are offering DDoS website protection to anyone wanting it, so any businesses wanting it can get some cheap/free protection from the teenagers who think it's cool using their botnets.

Try SolidCoin or talk with other SolidCoin supporters here SolidCoin Forums
