Slush Pool, a Czech-based Bitcoin mining pool accounting for 6 percent of hashing energy on a Bitcoin network, indicates it will re-enable connected miners to opinion for a block-size boost by BIP (Bitcoin Improvement Proposal) 101. Slush Pool was a initial mining pool on a Bitcoin network to concede miners to opinion for BIP 101, though recently dangling this choice due to sustained DDoS attacks on a servers.
Speaking to Bitcoin Magazine, Slush Pool user Marek Palatinus said: “We’re strengthening a infrastructure and we devise to capacitate BIP 101 mining again.”
The block-size brawl competence strech a vicious connection over a subsequent weeks, with a upcomingScaling Bitcoin seminar in Hong Kong in a initial week of December, and a settled vigilant of several prominent Bitcoin companies to change their formula to concede for bigger blocks that same month. As such, Bitcoin miners (and pools) competence be faced with an critical preference as to that formula they will support.
Palatinus pronounced that a bid to re-enable miners to opinion for bigger blocks is separate to this “December deadline,” however.
