There are a lot of discussions taking place when it comes to Ethereum and its future scaling solutions. One of the primary topics of debate is a solution under the name of ProgPoW. This programmatic proof of work implementation can be potentially groundbreaking for Ethereum, either for better or worse. Some sources claim it aims to get rid of ASICs, although that isn’t necessarily entirely correct.
While one has to commend enthusiasts and developers for looking into different ways to move Ethereum into the next stage of development, some ideas raise more questions than answers. In Ethereum’s case, the solution known as ProgPoW has caused a fair few discussions over the past few months. That is only normal, as the idea is a bit controversial first and foremost.
