A lone miner was able to get an impressive bitcoin block with minimal chances
The lucky miner of the cryptocurrency was able to get his hands on a significant block of BTC with odds of 1/1360000. It is curious that he is engaged in mining virtually alone, and not as part of large mining pools.

The user, using equipment at 126 TH/s and a meager amount of power in 0.000073% of the total Bitcoin network (comprising over 170 exahashes per second (EH/s)) was able to get a block with serial number 718124. For this, he was given a payment of 6.25 bitcoins - at the current rate, the amount is about 268 thousand dollars.

As cryptocurrency mining analyst Wolfie Jao points out, getting a block with such low power is an indicator of incredible luck or great diligence, or both.

Currently, the leading pools AntPool and F2Pool have hashing potentials of 29.58 and 28.81 EH/s respectively. At the same time, they control 16.38% and 15.96% of computing power. The name of the crypto miner who was lucky enough to get a bitcoin block is unknown. It is only known that he is a member of the ckpool solo pool, he will receive a 2% commission in the amount of 0.125 bitcoin. Interestingly, if a user started mining today, they would have to wait over 26 years to get a full block.
