Just wondering what people think is commodity hardware.
I will be doing some tweaks to the zcash pow (including replacing it) [this will not be a blockchain fork, it is just me playing with the code]
@hloo this thread might be of interest to you.
I would like to at least try to incorporate ProgPoW with its default settings. but I have been a lot more focused on RandomX - This imho has greater tweak ability whilst still retaining some of its asic resistance.
So anything really is welcome, it would be really helpful if you could include a format like
It could just be a single gpu, or cpu rather than an all in one type thing.
It could be scalable or not scalable. I intend to try to make the chains for a few of these different things (i have lots of hardware around)
Then maybe even some kind of cross chain interoperability. Havent even begun to think of the implications but it seems slightly better than harmony.
so say phone version has mined x% of its total supply and Pi chain has mined x + 10% of its coins then you 0.9 coins or 1.1 depending on which way you move (This is going to be more or less copy pasted from metronome and another couple of projects.) - idk, lets get the pow changes done first and some testnet/stagenets then see what I have inclination to do after that.
Its a fun thing I want to do. and may prove useful to someone in the future.
Make no mistake this will be a few just copy paste coins with minor tweaks, to see what actually happens. I like zcash. Monero have already decided on RandomX and most if not all of its parameters by now. (I think they did code freeze last month, I don’t follow the project too closely only the randomx bit - I really should check on that.)
Please heart responses you think are good cases for commodity hardware. Don’t worry about that hardware being asic friendly or not. That is something we can work out.
