US Pool size just quadrupled within 2 days


I’m curious to see if anyone knows what caused this gigantic jump in miners in the US pool? It jumped from around 350-400 to 1400 earlier today. This dramatic increase in miners has happened over the course of the past two days. Did I miss some announcement?


And it just doubled again. It has now over 2000 workers! Not sure if I should see this as a good or bad sign. Thoughts, anyone?
