Coinbase criticizes Monero’s decision to have a hard fork every six months

Not too long ago, Coinbase published an article about security for PoW blockchains.

Coinbase criticized ASIC resistance and highlighted that Monero’s need to have a hard fork every six months is definitely a burden which may not be worth just to block the ASIC miners, reports BTC Manager.

Monero Outreach addressed the decision to bar ASICs from mining Monero and noted that this practice of hard forking every half a year is not a necessity anymore.

Head over to BTC Manager’s original article to find out more details.

The main conclusion is that Monero responded to Coinbase, highlighting the fact that RandomX will eliminate hard forks.

“The mechanism by which RandomX blocks ASICs is expected to allow for resistance for at least a few years. Hence, the concept of bi-annual hard forks is, more or less, eradicated,” the online publication writes.
