The Bitcoin miner, which continues its activities without being connected to any pool, realized a probability of 2 in 1 million 400 thousand through the tiny system in its hands. Decrypting a Bitcoin block, this miner managed to own 6.25 Bitcoin cryptocurrencies. This story is occurring for the second time this week.

The computing power of the BTC miner was tied to mining pool Solo CK, which offers anonymous solo Bitcoin mining.

The software engineer who created the Bitcoin mining software CGMiner and also runs Solo CK, Dr. Con Kolivas announced on social media one of these miners who found block 718124 with only 126 terahash (TH/s).

   "Congratulations to yet another small miner solving a block solo with only 116TH on http://solo.ckpool.org ! They haven't even been mining a week with this hashrate!"

When asked what the chances are of finding a block with such a low hashrate, Dr. Kolivas said it depends on how long they've been mining.

By estimates, there is a 1 in 10,000 chance of finding a block per day, or an average of 27 years, with such low hashrate.

The hash rate of 120 TH/s of the miner who found the block is equivalent to about 0.0000068% of the total computing power of the Bitcoin network, or 0.00012 EH/s, which is currently 176.4 EH/s according to Blockchain.com.

What's even more interesting is that this event happened twice in just three days.

On Thursday, another miner in the Solo CK pool managed to mine block 718379 with a hashrate of only 116 TH/s, even less than the first miner.

Dr. According to Kolivas, the second miner had joined the Solo CK pool two days ago. Presumably, seeing the other lucky miner, he wanted to join the pool too, and there is a one-in-a-billion probability that he too managed to find a block.

Developments in Bitcoin cryptocurrency mining caused the eyes to turn to the Bitcoin mining council. One of its members, Hass McCook, who made a statement on the subject, said that this is an incredible thing and that mathematical knowledge is not enough to calculate the probability of these events.
