On https://btc.com when you click on about us it takes you to the Bitmain's website. Basically Bitmain is BTC.com. Also as we know Bitmain runs Antpool.

That means that these very recent 12 blocks were mined in a row from 1 source.

Block Pool
503139 AntPool
503138 BTC.com
503137 AntPool
503136 AntPool
503135 AntPool
503134 AntPool
503133 BTC.com
503132 BTC.com
503131 BTC.com
503130 AntPool
503129 AntPool
503128 AntPool

This excludes btc.top and viabtc that as you know has shown that they are heavily influenced by bitmain, if not in the end just a front to make the hash power seemed more spread than it actually is.

If there is any merit to the above statement then other than the 1 unknown block 20 consecutive blocks were mined by 1 entity or by a group that is controller mostly by 1 entity. And all of this is just looking at the most recent blocks, I am sure you can find much longer consecutive blocks mined.

If you are buying a house with Bitcoin rather wait for more than 20 blocks before you assume that the transaction is legit.
