Currently solo mining too.
Thanks. We need more people to do solo mining or join p2pool to guard the network
Yeah, not sure why people are pool mining with difficulty < 10.
Litecoin's hash speed is 1/1000 bitcoin's speed and still growing. Last time I check it's 180 MH/s, it's 220 MH/s now.
That's 40 GH/s growth in bitcoin world, or equal to another 57 AMD Radeon HD 5970 or 114 AMD Radeon HD 5850 that join in from last week.
5850 Litecoin : 350 kH/s
5850 Bitcoin : 350 MH/s
Litcoinpool is under a ongoing DDOS attack notroll.in seems now. Furthermore coinotron started behaving strangely today for me.
Could the attacker aim to damage the whole Litecoin network?
Anyway I am solo mining as a counter measure and you should too.
Both pools are confirmed down.
Notroll.in owner said it's not worth it to purchase DDos protection and he'll shut down notroll.in
When a couple of person have more than 50,000 - 100,000 bitcoins in his pocket for being early adopter, you know what they'll do to protect their investment.
If it's not worthy to be attacked, they'll just let the coins live a peaceful life since it's not a threat.
The positive side of this attack is that after all of this is over, all pools that survived will be somewhat DDos-proof and pool owners will learn how to deal with this attack.
It's a good thing the attacker attack Litecoin now, if they attack it when the price is growing to really valueable, it'll cause chaos to the market.
Please use CGMiner and set backup mining pools (at least 3-5) so you still continue mining even if one pool is down.
