As we already reported, Monero has revealed the introduction of the new POW algorithm that will be keeping ASIC mining at bay.
Altcoinbuzz online publication revealed that this is according to a few tweets by Jordan Clifford from October 11, 2019.
Over the past years, it’s been revealed that Monero has been plagued by specialized ASIC machines which were dominating its mining.
Changing the CryptoNight algorithm
This is why it had to make a few changes to the CryptoNight algorithm.
Usually, Monero has to deal with a considerable inflow of specialized ASIC machines that are taking over the mining process on the network.
After some ASIC-disabling forks which tweaked the CryptoNight mining algorithm, Monero plans to switch to a new PoW algorithm in order to remain resistant.
Monero’s third Anti ASIC algorithm
This is not the first time when Monero tries to eliminate ASIC mining from its network.
The latter has on two occasions created upgrades that were believed to shift mining from ASIC.
The very first one was back in April 2018, and the second one took place this year.
