ProgPoW Audits Released

The Ethereum Cat Herders are pleased to announce that both the hardware and software audits for ProgPoW have been released.


The Ethereum Cat Herders were asked by the Ethereum Core Developers to evaluate community sentiment around ProgPoW and arrange an audit to be performed to assess the safety and claims around ProgPoW. Back in March, we published our findings on community sentiment that we performed using a variety of signals. Our understanding of the current path is that there is a plan to implement ProgPoW in a future hard fork, yet to be determined. It is not the responsibility of the Ethereum Cat Herders to decide if ProgPoW is going to be implemented. That decision is up to the community, including miners, dapp developers, core developers, and those who run or use Ethereum software. We hope that the publishing of these audits will help the community decide the best path forward.
