Site http://blockchain.info/pools , gives information on pool sizes.

By far the biggest now is "Unknown" pool.

Could you comment on the following, or post a link of previous discussion on this topic

1) Is "Unknown" pool is a single operator pool?
1a)if yes, Who is running "unknown" pool?

2) Is it a threat?
2a)if yes, What can we do to minimize threat of network takeover?

Regards.

sigh,
1 more time with this
no "Unknown" is not 1 "pool"
it is all of the miners that solo, some private pools and propably some botnets.
even some of the recognised pools are in that group
everything that blockchain.info doesnt "know for sure" and they use some "best guess" way that often misreports deepbit blocks

there is a big botnet in ther often referred to as "mystery miner" who has a habit of making 1 txn blocks, and while this is a small concern it is not a big issue (although some would have you believe otherwise)

truly this subject has been covered many times

have a look thru the forum Smiley

http://blockorigin.pfoe.be/top.php is usually more accurate than blockchain.info kinlo has done  great job of better identifying which pool actually found the bock - unfortunately its a little behind atm.

hope that is a help Smiley

It relies on blockexplorer for some input data.  Unfortunatly blockexplorer seems broken....
