GHash.IO is open for discussion

Rapid growth of GHash.IO mining pool, seen over the past few months, has been driven by our determination to offer innovative solutions within the Bitcoin ecosystem combined with significant investment in resource. Our investment, participation and highly motivated staff confirm it is our intention to help protect and grow the broad acceptance of Bitcoin and categorically in no way harm or damage it. We never have and never will participate in any 51% attack or double spend against Bitcoin. Still, we are against temporary solutions, which could repel a 51% threat.

In any market, competition and innovation drives growth and that is particularly true in an emerging and disruptive environment such as Bitcoin. Successful and innovative companies cannot be expected to limit their growth or competitiveness as a direct result of their success. However, this is the situation we find ourselves in when faced with the community perception of the threat of a 51% attack on Bitcoin. Asking our users to not use our services or to use competing solutions is not conducive to fostering innovation. Implementing a pool fee to our pool contradicts principles of our operation from the very launch of GHash.IO. It also does not address the core issue only pushing the problem a few weeks or months down the road when another pool or perhaps GHash.IO again grows towards 51%.

We do fully recognise the concerns and possible threat posed by an entity with malicious intent taking control of enough mining power to exploit the 51% scenario, but we also have confidence and agree with the views expressed by the Bitcoin Foundation that any such exploitation or attack ”would be obvious it was happening, and pretty easy to defend against. The transparent nature of the blockchain provides unprecedented insight for all to investigate and report such behaviours.

We also recognise however that a long term preventative solution to the threat of a 51% attack does have to be found, the current situation we find ourselves in (essentially being punished for our success) is damaging not only to us, but to the growth and acceptance of Bitcoin long term, which is something we are all striving for.

To that effect we are in the process of arranging contact to the leading mining pools and Bitcoin Foundation to propose a ‘round table’ meeting of the key players with the aim of discussing and negotiating collectively ways to address the decentralisation of mining as an industry. Our aim is to do this quickly with a possible date coinciding with the CoinSummit Conference in London.

Future of the Bitcoin Price

One of the main criticisms that some people have against Bitcoin is that the value of bitcoins is not exactly stable. Although the price of a single bitcoin was able to climb from around $10 to over $1000 over the course of 2013, the reality is that 2014 has not been that kind to holders of bitcoins up to this point. While short term speculators may not be enjoying this decline in the bitcoin price in early 2014, there are plenty of long-term investors who see this as nothing more than a buying opportunity.

Anti-money laundering and bitcoin

As most of you know, Anti-Money Laundering suggests a number of procedures, laws and regulations that are implemented to prevent the practice of generating income through illegal actions and criminal behaviour. Targeting businesses providing financial services is an ongoing trend in the criminal world, and often occurs without the company’s knowledge or even suspicion. Global Anti-Money Laundering Survey made by KPMG International in 2014 states that Western Europe (27%), North America (26%) and the Middle East together with Africa (18%) are the regions responsible for the majority of money laundering operations.
