What is the best mining algorithm of pow for zcash?


#1

Someone is doing some work to break equihash without open source, will it cause unfair mining? Is sha256 the best pow algorithm? I think unfair is not the faith of zcash for the first time.

sha256 just an example


#2

Equihash has already been decided upon and is unlikely to change to some other algorithm. SHA-256 is horrible in that it is not ASIC resistant. Quite the opposite.


#3

Just an example, what we want is a fair mining


#4

What algorithm do you feel is fairer than Equihash? Not as if it is going to change at this point...

Just curious.

My candidates for best PoW:

compute bound: Hashcash with SHA256
memory-bandwidth bound: Equihash
memory-latency bound: Cuckoo Cycle
