A recent assessment conducted by a website name crypto51.app has caught the attention of many cryptocurrency enthusiasts. By gathering various sources, the crypto51 team has assessed the approximate cost of a 1 hour 51% attack on different blockchains.
Charlie Lee, the creator of Litecoin has mentioned about this study in his recent tweet. Based on the assessment by crypto51 and providing several hash rate charts, he tries to prove that Litecoin provides high security and healthy mining.
According to crypto51, this attack takes place when a miner with more than 50% blockchain processing power takes control of the network. Crypto51 achieved their results by aggregating data from various websites such as Mine the Coin, Coinmarketcap etc.
Tweet by Charlie Lee:
“In lite of recent 51% attacks and http://crypto51.app info, rest assured that the Litecoin is extremely secure and mining is very healthy.
– Pools are well distributed (largest 22%)
– Hashrate up 50x (past 1 year)
– High capital costs to attack ($322-761MM + ~$38-50k/hr)”
