Per previous reports from this outlet, early last month, Ethereum (ETH) developers convened in a meeting that glossed over a number of subjects, including the network’s ASIC-resistant qualities. After some deliberation, the project’s core developers determined that it would be logical to eventually activate ProgPoW, a special Proof of Work (PoW) protocol that equals the playing field between ASICs and GPUs (almost like mining farms v.s. consumers).
While an agreement was seemingly struck that the protocol would go live eventually, the timeline was nebulous and barely mentioned. So, when Ethereum’s lead developers, Hudson Jameson, Afri Schodedon, Lane Rettig, among others, met on Friday to discuss the matter, more discussion was had regarding ProgPoW’s activation schedule.
