Folks: after extensive study, consultation with other people in the industry, and public discussion on this forum and many other places, the Zcash Company has decided we’ll support a new version of our zcashd software wh…
RT @yorktronic: $ZEC going back to GPU mining makes sense because big mining operations don't have access to high quantities of cheap GPUs.
Oh wait, yeah they fucking do...
ASIC resistance is a pointless joke. https://t.co/rrHCBtrbc5
RT @Steven_McKie: “I often think of my 14yo son, who used to mine Zcash on his gaming rig (when he wasn’t playing Fortnite PugBee). I think it would be really great if Zcash could be more accessible to more 14yo gamers.”
Lol @zooko calls PubG “PugBee” lmao. Great post https://t.co/K2X9uKD6Nq
Guys, maybe you are sad that the price is not what is used to be. Let's be honest. Looking for something to blame, even. I haven't seen any major red flags from the team, but maybe I am biased. The team is there with a plan and has a face. I keep seeing this negativity here. But I d rather see meaningful arguments, and suggestions for improvement.
It's mostly pissed off miners that can't profit from it anymore. Don't bother with them. Block DAG could change that problem and they might come back. Horizen is one of the more professional looking projects in this space but a lot of people are impatient and tend to jump around multiple projects for short term gains.
Only the strong and patient people will survive.
seemed like a busch league move to me. they state they plan on forking, delay long enough for gpu miners to bail, then announce they're not forking when the only miners left are asics.
however, I still hope the project succeeds. I spun up a few nodes with mining proceeds. I just don't follow the project very closely anymore or advocate zen to people I know that are interested in crypto or mining.
If you're reading Zooko's post as "we're definitely going to get rid of ASIC mining!" then you're gravely misinterpreting. It's important to realize that such indications are tentative, and phrased tentatively, on purpose. Until a particular proposal is stated in unequivocal terms, ideally with technical specs and a deadline, you should view it as malleable. Take the caveats seriously, because they are meant seriously.
