I'm not going to pretend I know what the 51% attack is, or how it works, but he, assuming it's one miner, is getting larger and larger every day.

"Unknown" isn't necessarily a single entity, and often consists of mis-identified known pool blocks.

And I guess some larger frams just go solo/mergedmined to pick up the extra 0.1% transaction fees, and also keep bandwidth down, as the daemons do not use up much. You might even use sattelite inet as backup, as the 1 second delay during backup times is not really bad. But another think. Is this the block from hell (got solved this moment (179628) Wink?! Wink

Fear of the "unknown". It's a common human response.
But yeah, I'm really curious to understand exactly what makes up the unknown.
Who are they? What are their intentions?

Fpga/asic manufacturers piloting new products until they produce enough coins to them and the difficulty level rises enough, and then send their products to the people who have paid them a few weeks/months earlier.
Of course they want to be anonymous.
They also deny everything if they are asked about it  Wink

If you go here http://blockchain.info/pools and scroll down to the unknown block section, you will see that it is not one person submitting all those blocks, but is a lot of different ip addresses. if you look at the ip with the most blocks submitted, you'll see that it doesn't even match the top 5 pools in terms of blocks per 24 hours.

You wont donate, so why do I bother?
