Ethereum: Comes ProgPoW with Istanbul-Update?
the In ProgPoW the ghosts. Some say that the implementation was necessary to have the Mining be decentralized, the other hold to be entirely superfluous. And so the time for a timely implementation is just slow.

to The Ether Mining more egalitarian. At least when it comes to the proponents of the so-called ProgPoW algorithm (Programmatic Proof-of-Work) to replace the outdated Ethash algorithm. Finally, before parts of the latter, ASIC-Miner, and an increasing centralization of mining. The argument is that the ProgPoW community.

But the implementation is controversial. For one thing, a Hard would be for the implementation of a new Mining algorithm Fork of the Ethereum Protocol is needed and a strong centralization by ASIC Miner for some already appears unlikely. The Argument of the opponent: Ethash apply already now as a mostly ASIC-resistant.

ProgPoW to hot iron

Nevertheless, ProgPoW seems to be one of the Top priorities in the circles of the ETH-Developer. As developer Tim Beiko suggested ProgPoW on the Agenda for a Call next Friday, the 15th. To set March,. They wanted to discuss in particular whether a ProgPoW implementation for the upcoming Istanbul Hard Fork is out of the question.

Also, Ethereum developer, Lane Rettig, an open debate on the ASIC-resistant Mining algorithm holds for the need of the hour:

This is something that needs to be addressed in the next Call of the Core Developers.

it would be also high time: The Deadline for Audits of Software Changes to be implemented in Istanbul-Update is already the middle of may.

Until then, you must check, however, whether the Update would bring the promised promise of a more egalitarian mining ever after. In this regard, Community Relations Manager for the Ethereum Foundation, Hudson James in doubt:

We must see whether the development of the ASICs is going to happen anyway, so fast that you make all of the improvements in the short term, nothing. has

Programmatic Proof-of-Work is anything other than a done deal.
