Its sometimes really not understandable how miners react. I honestly think that miners that have invested in GPU racks only want to protect their investment and try to stop progress of technologies for their own pocket money.
The world is moving guys and you need to move with the world! Sometimes I feel that this whole asic debate is about stopping all technologies just for a few people that need pocket money.
Asics are just a small moment in time, before we know there will be FPGA’s that will multiply the power of asics. For sure a bit later in time a new technologies will be there that multiply this of the FPGA’s that outbeat the asics.
When our past generations moved from a wooden wheel to a rubber wheel a lot of lobbying and a lot of screaming was done because some invested in machines to make the wooden wheel, some had tools lying around and could make some wheels with it. They all made profit from it but suddenly there was better technologie and their profit dropped if not adapted. Offcouse there was a whole debate about that one guy/company that invented the rubber wheel would dominate and so on… (same as all now with just some asics…)
Can you image what would be the world now if they could really stop that wheel progression, if they really managed to stop that technologie? All transportion on rubber wheels would not exist as we speak…
The moment Monero decided to try to stop the future I repointed my rigs partially to Dero and other projects (more and more point the rigs to Dero, what is more KH than multiple asics do).
A coin that do this to protect a small group of people is nothing better than the Nord Korea dedicator, he also protect a small group of people. You can see what the country is because of that.
I like that Dero is not stopping any progression, in fact they follow their own way to create the rubber wheel. That this stops some existing technologies for now is perfect fine, as this is complete different than on purpose changing to stop technologie to favor a group of people (In fact our goverments, of all reading this, do nothing else than this and blockchain is a strong reaction of these practices from all of us mankind).
I personally also owns asics. I own the Decred D9 machine. I bought it because I believe in the Decred project same as I believe in the Dero project.
I like the new way Dero go and like that they never mentioned that the fork is because new techologie mining and like that they never in any moment in time have talked about favoring any group of people.
This is what blockchain is all about!
Good work team Dero!
For people that are screaming about new technologie, look to Decred. I see in Dero the same clear vision!
Keep up the good work and open vision!
