Ethereum Core Developers regrouped for their 54th public bi-weekly this Friday. If you haven’t tuned into an Ethereum Developer call before, we suggest giving it a go. The calls are a great way to see how decisions are coordinated and made at the core developer level. At the very least, check out the first 5 minutes for some groovy Web3 tunes.
While today’s call discussed roadmaps, Ethereum talks at the Stanford Blockchain Conference, and research updates, the discussion around how to best move forward with ProgPow — a proposed change to the Ethereum hashing algorithm which would narrow the performance gap between generalized and specialized hardware — once again took center stage. For a refresh on the ProgPow debate, see our recent take on the concerns.
