You could have just described this as an over-under bet at a difficulty of 430,000 with you taking the under and the other taking the over.

Well yes, that's what it is.  But it adds some flavor to see the reasoning behind the derivation of the 430,000 figure as well.

427,000 with 177 blocks left to go, this is fun. I'm betting cyde will win but it will be close either way Smiley

I first read this as you betting 500,000 and 360,000 bitcoins and choked on my drink.

Against my better judgement... 1ADjszXMSRuAUjyy3ShFRy54SyRVrNDgDc

It just hit 16 blocks per hour.  But I doubt it will be enough to move the average.  I'm guessing 450k difficulty.  But I wouldn't be surprised if it's higher.
