In recent weeks, an increase in the activity of an unknown miner has been registered in the Bitcoin Cash network, which signs its currency-based transaction under the name Satoshi Nakamoto.
Experts suggest that behind the miner's personality there may be proponents of the cryptocorrência of Bitcoin SV, trying to make money in this way against the background of the price reduction of BSV. The most profitable for them will be the withdrawal of funds from BCH to BSV, experts say, which will reduce the Bitcoin Cash rate and ensure the growth of Bitcoin SV.
According to another version, the miner's activity may be associated with an attempt to discredit the Bitcoin Cash blockchain through a reorganization attack. Not long ago, the blockchain of Bitcoin SV underwent a reorganization, and then the problem was caused by a disproportionately large block size.
Experts, however, did not rule out that the new computing power belonged to Bitcoin Cash's own field and were allocated to protect the network during the so-called "Haiti Wars".
Note that during the past week the share of unidentified miners in the Bitcoin Cash blockchain was 37.1%. In the last 24 hours, unknown miners produced more than 36.8% of blocks in the BCH network.
Recall that in March, the ChainDD portal reported that 74.48% of the hashrate bitcoin network is controlled by six mining pools, half of which are controlled directly or indirectly by the Chinese company Bitmain.
