@adam 2 separate single miners solved 2 BTC blocks in the last 24 hours for a payout of ~6.2 BTC each.
Typically a 1.6-1.8M chance, but random number theory.
There is hope for single miners!
@DrChris so each person netted about 250k from running something like adam has?
Slight correction - second time in a week, not 24 hours.
@DrChris still impressive
My understanding is they (at least 1) were mining with ckpool ( https://solo.ckpool.org/ ) and it's kind of a pseudo pool where the individual miner get 98% of the reward...not entirely sure of the particular advantage of joining that pool.
@DrChris @adam that's not hope. It's a lottery. Plan your resources accordingly.
