The adoption of ProgPoW is being opposed by the powerful ASIC mining lobby. Make your voice heard if you believe in mining decentralization.
With the 33% reduction of the mining reward from 3 to 2, significant pressure is going to be be placed on miners to cut energy costs as much as possible. GPUs will be quickly pushed by ASICs.
There are only two ASIC manufacturers who will be in control of the entire mining hardware supply system if ProgPow is not adopted. Why would we place our trust of network validation in their hands?
In the case of Bitcoin, BitMAIN had a near monopoly for large periods of time and caused massive headaches with their opposition to the core development roadmap, support of Bitcoin Cash, and other types of trolling.
We know what happens when ASIC manufacturers control the ecosystem. Let's not let it happen to Ethereum.
