There is a mining pool called solo.ckpool.org. This Bitcoin mining ‘pool’ runs a high speed low latency node for solo mining, which means any solved block is more likely not to be orphaned by the network, unlike mining on your own bitcoin node from your home connection.. The current block reward being 12.5 bitcoins, many put an ASIC USB stick or smaller miners which have no hope of profiting.
An "unknown entity" is currently responsible for 0.1% of the hash power on the bitcoin network. It could be a private organisation quietly building a mining operation, or a public pool that is flying below the radar.
↑Note that pool hashrate is largely irrelevant but can be seen as a popularity measurement. It is a theoretical security issue if one pool gains above 50% of the total computational power of the network, thus consider joining a pool based on other metrics.
This relatively small pool was created in 2011 by programmer Forrest Voight. It claims to be "the most transparent mining pool on the planet" because it distributes all pool data for the public to view. As of September 2014, it had mined more than 78,000 bitcoin (£13.4 million or $20.9 million at current prices).
