- For it, he received more than $ 170 thousand rewards.
- At the same time, the power of his equipment was only about 750 Th / s
- According to the expert, with such mining complexity, this is possible only once every nine years
Tonight, May 23, at an altitude of 790958, an unknown solo miner was able to mine a block of bitcoins. With the current high difficulty, this is only possible once every nine years.
Recall that the complexity of mining has increased again against the backdrop of higher commissions in the Bitcoin network. This led to an influx of new participants, but at the same time made it much more difficult to mine blocks.
Presumably, the power of the equipment of this solo miner was about 750 Th / s. The chance of mining a block with such indicators is about 0.00000003%.
The user received a reward of 6.25 BTC (about $170,000). The identity and location of the miner is unknown. So far, there have been no new details about this event.
Occasionally, lone farmers manage to “knock out” a block. This happened, for example, in March, and before that in January. In the latter case, the power of the lucky equipment was even less – 10 Th / s. However, the complexity of mining too.
“I welcome those newcomers who want to enter the mining market and compete for a block. But I also have to warn you. Mining alone is essentially gambling. Most of you will never process a block.” emphasized user.
