Of course, this happened right after the difficulty kicked up to 511.7, so all these new “good” blocks will have to contend with that. And a good chunk of the network grind power is off on the wrong chain, so new blocks may take a lot longer than 10min to find. At what point will the balancing figure this out and possibly kick the difficulty back down again?
The bad chain is also slowed down as more nodes upgrade.
We’ve already generated 14 blocks since 74638. The builds of 0.3.10 were uploaded about 2 and 3 hours ago. Of the nodes I’m connected to, more than half are already 0.3.10. I would say we probably already have more power than the bad chain.
