Solo Bitcoin Miner Finds Valid Block

For the third time in a little over ten days, a solo bitcoin miner has found a valid block hash to take the full coinbase reward home. The small worker, with only about 86 terahashes per second (TH/s) of hashrate capacity, managed to successfully mine a new block on the Bitcoin network, earning a block reward of 6.25 BTC and over 0.30 BTC in fees.

“Congratulations to another miner with approximately 86TH solving a solo block on http://solo.ckpool.org,” tweeted Solo CK Pool administrator, Dr. Con Kolivas. “There are a lot more miners now on the solo pool and if enough people are mining solo, someone will eventually be the lucky one as here.”
