Help! Dual-mining Ethereum is hurting PascalCoin. [RESOLVED]
Hello Ethereum Fans,
I'm a developer from PascalCoin and a few crypto-eons ago I came to this reddit, hat-in-hand, begging for mercy from this community for help to save our eco-system from 99% mining centralization being caused by ETH-PASC dual-mining (later we got private ASICs ontop too). Understandably, I was laughed at, mocked and summarily dismissed with instructions to change PoW algorithm or die.
Just following up, we have since developed and rolled out our very own low-memory, GPU & ASIC resistant PoW algorithm called RandomHash and it is working very well. We also have unofficial claims that it is pool resistant since optimal nonce-ranges can only be enumerated on-the-fly by worker and not pre-determined by pool operator. As a result, we have high % of solo miners trending with pool miners diminishing as they learn about the 40% more efficiency from solo mining.
Thanks to RHMiner (C++ impl for CPU/GPU), it is empirically shown that RandomHash is GPU resistant for economically comparative CPU pair. I've also had confirmation from an ASIC manufacturer that RandomHash is a problem for them.
Note, only 5mb of memory is required to evaluate a nonce.
I hear you guys are debating change of PoW algorithm and I humbly submit RandomHash as a candidate for your community evaluation.
