Unknown Miners and DAA Game Theories
Every six months, the BCH chain is rising to continue to scale the network. On November 15, the BCH network will see two new features aimed at strengthening the Bitcoin Cash roadmap. Engineers announced that the upgrade will complete the BIP62 accessibility vector by implementing Minimaldata in the script and implement Schnorr support for OP_Checkmultisig. While the node operators raised their full nodes, there were some quirks in the BCH hashrate as participants prepared for future changes. On October 25, observers noticed that unknown miners had captured several blocks over a two-day period. A given block had a three-hour gap, and speculators began to assume that large BTC or BSV miners were playing a difficulty tuning algorithm (DAA). One theory says that large pools are moving back and forth from one network to another, with large amounts of hashpower moving periodically. The assumption is that some bad pools try to push ideological BCH miners out of the equation.
However, some individuals believe that the three-hour gap is completely normal because the 14% change in difficulty at that time was quite large. One person wrote a blog post explaining why BCH thinks attack theories are so important. “There is nothing remotely resembling a 50% attack, even remotely - the hashrate has increased by 10%, Yazar the author said. “The 3-hour gap is likely to be caused by large miners (about 10% of the total hash) out of the network - in the next period there were 149 blocks in 22 hours, increasing to 6.7 per hour. 6, ”blog post highlighted. Individual added:
In fact, the Fork.lol data site shows that, despite the significant change in difficulty that led to the length of three weeks, there has not been much change over the past week. The BCH hashrate was between 2-3 exahash (EH / s) per second and the BTC hashrate was between 80-105 EH / s. The daily hashrate in the BCH mining pool has increased slightly since the first week of October. Also, during the spelling Bitcoin Cash is more profitable between 1-4% to do mining in the block chain.
Coin Dance statistics also show that unknown miners caught 49% for seven days and 44% for today's hashrat distribution data. There are those who believe that hidden miners can be about 2-4 pools, because there are different coin base addresses used for blocks found by unknown miners. Others claimed that the miners were BCH's followers and only stored coins before halfway. A user at the Reddit forum said, düşünüy I think they might be stacking BCH before they get bored. ”
“Bitmeister yaklaş, yarı This is a sign of the approaching halves - probably by pointing at the BCH, we'll see more and more miners see it as they try and play useless BTC forces”. Ası In short, any shift from BTC to BCH depending on power, whether motivation is good or bad, will look like this at first. ”
At the time of the press, there was no peculiarity about the time intervals between the blocks in the BCH chain. The stories seem disproportionate, although there are a lot of longing consumed by secret miners and price changes make BCH more profitable from time to time. The flow of unknown miners has been taking place since mid-2018, and these pools are visible on both networks. A touch of more than 20% of the BTC hashrate is also processed by secret miners. With improvement progress people can be on the sidelines, and trolls are quick to create fear, uncertainty, and suspicion (FUD) when there is opportunity.
