Orca Pool Mining Operation Wants to Defend Cryptocurrencies from Attacks
Back in November 2018, the Bitcoin Cash (BCH) community experienced a hash war that affected the whole cryptocurrency market. This hash war was related to the bifurcation of the main chain after Bitcoin SV (BSV) decided to create its own network.
There was a mining operation called Shark Pool that aimed at attacking weaker chains. However, Orca Pool will be protecting altcoins and forks from being attacked by malicious miners.
The Shark Pool explained before the Bitcoin Cash hard fork that the mining organization would mine blocks of low proof-of-work chains to create orphaned blocks. Additionally, Shark Pool said that they will be selling their profits to acquire BSV. Shark Pool was founded by Cashpay Solutions cofounder Ari Kuqi.
Shark Pool explained that altcoins such as forks and splits are acts of war against Bitcoin that are going to be treated as such. Shark Pool has also warned Bitcoin Gold (BTG), Bitcoin interest (BCI), Bitcoin Diamond (BCD) and Bitcoin Private (BTCP) that they would be attacking their networks as well.
However, there is a new mining pool called Orca Pool that will be defending these networks. On Twitter, Orca Pool informed that attacking Bitcoin was made to be a costly signal and that they will be bankrupting Shark Pool.

The official website of Orca Pool says that miners can sign up for registration to join the pool’s resources. The website also details that the Orga is a predator of the shark.
Orca Pool informed that all altcoins such as forks and splits should compete in the free market and that predatory pools emerged trying to interfere with this process. Miners at Orca Pool will be mining chains that need defense from attackers and sell the rewards for Bitcoin.
