One In A Billion – The Second Tiniest Miner Cracks A Block.

In an incredible twist of fate, two fortunate miner’ of the Solo CK mining pool overcame all chances and contributed a fresh block to the Bitcoin network in an identical week.

On Monday, a small miner cracked a block with a hash rate capability of 126 terahashes per second (TH/s). Hass McCook, a Bitcoin mining specialist as well as part of the Bitcoin Mining Council, informed at the period that the chances of this occurring were one in 1,400,000.

However, a further miner from the identical pool, as per a Jan 13 tweet by Solo admin Con Kolivas, was capable of solving a block with a capacity of just 116 terahashes per second (TH/s) – very little than the initial miner.

‘Absurd fortune,’ may be, is an exaggeration. McCook informed that the chances of this occurring are so remote that he is unclear how to quantify them.

He estimated that the chances of this kind of tiny miner achieving once were one in a million and that two triumphs within a couple of days of each other will be at minimum one in a billion.

“To suggest this is exceedingly unusual is an exaggeration,” McCook remarked after the initial miner effectively cracked a block.

Every miner, who might have only used one or two machines, would get 6.25 Bitcoin (BTC) ($266,000) for their work.
