Bitcoin conspiracy – More proof that Bitcoin was created by AI? Block hash #528249 – 21e800

Published on June 27, 2018

On June 19, 2018, block number #528249 in Bitcoin’s blockchain was mined. And ever since, the crypto community has been in a frenzy. Why? Because the block hash assigned to block #528249 is 00000000000000000021e800c1e8df51b22c1588e5a624bea17e9faa34b2dc4a, and, according to calculations, it is very unlikely for a miner to compute this hash. The crypto-community has been restless in trying to figure out if this low-probability event was by chance, premeditated, or maybe a legacy of Satoshi Nakamoto. When members of the crypto-community crunched the numbers to figure out how long it would take a miner to come up with this hash, they found that if a miner had one exahash of computing power, it would take the miner about 2512 years to discover block #528249. To put that amount of computing power into perspective, 1000 petahashes is equal to one exahash, and it takes 1000 terahashes to equal a petahash. An Antminer s9 is able to put out about 14 terahashes per second. Thus, it was found that there is about a 0.4699 percent chance of this block hash being discovered. More so, block #528249 is similar to the genesis block signed by Satoshi Nakamoto — the anonymous creator of Bitcoin. According to a crypto community member that goes by the alias “coop-soup,” if a Bitcoin miner using a CPU in the genesis block era worked toward solving the genesis block for six days straight, they would have about a 17 percent chance of solving the block.
