Um, serisouly. If the hacker was playing by the rules a 51% is totally fine and fair too. Go on.

For the good of all cryptocurrencies, we might want to be a bit civil. We have the ability to change the world, and here we are fighting each other. Sigh

A whole network is being attacked for the sake of a single actor.

I thought the pro-forkers were claiming some sort of ethical high ground.

Good thing there is no way to fake transactions, empty accounts, or replace contracts with a 51% attack then.

The dao release notes explicitly said that the code is the law. A 51% attack doesn't have that blessing.

Exactly. Finally someone is doing something about this moron. Thanks Chandler, keep it up. FULL SUPPORT FROM MY SIDE

Congratulations Chandler, you just boosted its hashrate and increased the attention users are giving it. Totally useless diversion.

My genuine reaction as an ETC miner when I saw the headline was "thanks for the free publicity". Even if a 51% attack is successful, sustaining it is probably not likely.

Contentious hard forks and 51% attacks, great time for experimentation in cryptoland.

Yes I agree, a 51% attack only allows for double spending.

Nope. http://ethc.epool.io/#/ has 99G hashrate. And it's rapidly rising.

  • Pool Hash Rate: 176.47 GH

  • Network Hash Rate: 97.54 GH

Huh? How can the pool's hashrate be greater than the overall network hashrate. I think something is effed.

Yeah, looks like a reaction to the 51% attack threat.

It's also getting DDOSd.

Too late, ETC hashrate is already a lot more than that.

Wouldn't it be rising because it is being attacked? I would expect the hash rate to basically double.
