A Solo Miner Mines a Bitcoin Block

Reading Time: < 1 minute

A solo miner with a hardware capacity of 60 TH/s included block 733,739 in the Bitcoin blockchain on April 27, as announced by the administrator of the CKPool pool Con Kolivas.

According to him, the miner joined the pool at least a month ago. He has added that the chance of a miner with equipment of this capacity to find a new block every day is less than 1 in 20,000, which is the reason why this is so surprising.

The miner’s reward was 6,229 BTC or about $247,440 after netting the network fee. He has said that he will give part of the reward to CKPool.

The pool’s solo miner clients have mined Bitcoin blocks at least four times this year.
