People love to believe in easy solutions to intractable problems. When we wear brands that advertise activism, we believe we’re taking a stand — against inequality, political oppression, and other deeply rooted social issues. Corporations only care about these issues as long as they further their bottom line.
My point — and I have one — is that as much effort you spend making things complex and interesting, you should spend making them simple and arguably uninteresting. If you do a good job, I think the work, or whatever it is you’re doing, will, in the end, still be as interesting as you wanted it to be. Only now it’ll be more accessible, and now people won’t turn away because it appears too complex from the get-go.
…but as we’ve seen from products on the market today, you can still do well enough to obsolete GPUs. Ethash is by far the most ASIC resistant algorithm we’ve looked at, most of the others have shortcuts that are even more significant than the shortcuts you can take with equihash.
