Huge jump in network mining speed! Does anyone have any idea what could cause this? We are now around last year's high.

Looking to review Bitcoin / Crypto mining Hardware.

It just spiked from 15.5 to 17 t/hash for a minute.
Now its back to 16.5 15.5 t/hash.
Pretty weird how the total hash power is fluctuating this much right now.

Maybe its indeed BFL testing there stuff.

$6.40~ could also be some threshold for mining profitability.

I wonder when we will break the old record.

Does more Thas/s acutally increase encryption or does it just make bitcoin safer by needing more for a 51% attack?

Its just luck. Hashing power is calculated from the number of blocks found in time unit. So more luck in block finding means spikes on the chart. And vice versa.

This is true. Ever notice how there are always spikes?

There's an assumed botnet that's been operating since April that has just cranked up their capacity.

Doesn't make sense. Power cost (determining factor of profitability if you discard initial investment, which makes sense here) is distributed anywhere from $0.05 to $0.30. Mining rig efficiencies also differ over quite a range. So there's no "inherent" treshold.

There was a massive LUCK-BASED surge yesterday.  At one point there were 10 blocks in 20 minutes.  Those weird spikes really screw up hash rate estimate graphs.  Yesterday there were many pools finding blocks much faster than they normally should (luck).

There has also been some growth due to the $1 increase in BTC price in under a week, which should be expected.

Looks to me there is atleast a real 1-1.5TH of new hashing, rest is likely due to the luck of yesterday. In fact there was a 18blocks in 60minute period, total madness.

To buy our products they could more easily produce using a replicator? Or just to screw up our economy before attacking to make that easier?

With copywrite law now pushed out across the galaxy for eternity plus one million-billion years, they now have to come here and buy all of their hello kitty gear.

I never understood why miners would shut down their rigs when profitability is low, unless they don't think it (prices) will ever come back up to a profitable level, or they don't have enough cash to pay their electric bills. If profitablility for me = $4.50, and I mine for 10 years at $1/btc, then it rises to $5, I can sell 10 years worth of coins vs 1 week.

SHHH! Why are you giving away out secrets?! Let all the dumb miners stop mining!
