Serena....mojo

Im still waiting for a factual response to my questions.

You are conveniently avoiding my questions here.

By doing so You are only supporting a view that is dictatorial.

Why was a banned for raising valid concerns shared by the community?

I was in the chat at the same time and you did the same that you do here: just not accept it and move on. After people heard the news, people came to chat to ask questions or voice their opinion. After a bit of discussion, they would accept the dev decision or not and leave. But people like you would not stop. Its Ok to voice your opinion. But its not Ok to try to dominate the chat to get devs to change their decision. You would complain and ask the same questions over and over again. You started to complain in the morning and where still typing the same things in the evening . You want to have everybody to have your point of view and the devs change their decision. But the devs wont change and that was obvious. You were getting on the nerves of the other users (the silent majority + the people that are OK with the algo)

In addition to above. Team showed ultimate patience in handling several others with many other queries, questions and support.
Everyone knows there is no such supportive team as DERO in crypto world.

You all still think i was complaining about the algo.

Which is why i said "F POW"

It wasnt about the POW.

It was about how the team communicated to the community touting asic resistance the whole time (which ultimately drew in a lot of supporters and people to buy the coin because of that)

I dont want them to change their decision. Its their decision.

I never once wanted them to change their decision. Like i said its not about the POW, its about how it was handled and communicated to the community since the initial announcement of Atlantis to the Launch.

There was no change in knowledge about Asics from the announcement of atlantis to the deployment of atlantis (testnet)

That is all.

I'm over it. but you should all remember what is said and what is done are different things.

Wish Dero the best, just dont decieve the community again, or at least communicate it better.

Communication - yes could have been better and earlier. They should take the criticism and improve that on that.

But fooling investors? Asic resistance per se is not a goal, only for miners who want to protect their investments.
What Asic resistance stands for in the mind of investors is security of the network from attacks by concentrated hash power. As Dero team has said, many Asic resistant networks now have hidden Asics, which is a great danger and fooling investors who think they buy security.

Dero team took the hard decision and taking all the blows and beatings now to keep the network secure. They could have gone the more easy, more popular route for short term gains. But they did not and that speaks volumes for their commitment and integrity. They are taking the shots now to protect the network and investors.

1.If anyone invest his time/money on a project just because it's anti asic,he is stupid.
etc,Bitcoin Gold?I'm afraid it's not real anti asic now.

2.If someone hate and leave a project just because it's asic friendly,he is also stupid.
etc,Bitcoin.Any one here mine bitcoin with his gpu?

Bitcoin Gold is certainly anti-ASIC.  Not sure what you're talking about.

And we would mine Bitcoin if we could. And that was the original vision of Satoshi.  You think Satoshi approves of ASICs?  Bitmain's pools now control 42% of Bitcoin mining.  You think that's a good thing?

And finally, you're missing the main point:  the Dero team was portraying themselves as anti-ASIC and they've now shown themselves to be sellouts.

I think ASIC isn't the Issue, The Issue are ASIC sold by the lowest scumbag on earth, right now.

If ASIC was sell by Intel or AMD they will never be an Issue.

Difficulty has been quite high the last week, but it just went full retard: a single RX 570 is now mining less than 1 DERO per day, at an exchange price of ~$0.44US. Normally I'd look at the high hashrate and difficulty increase as validation of a coin's prospects/value, but this feels forced.

I'm not going to stop mining it, but I am definitely reducing the hashrate allocated to it; that is the prudent course of action when some whale comes stomping down on the little minnow miners.

Lol, that's the biggest understatement since the black knight lost both his arms in Monty Python and the Holy Grail:



But fooling investors?

When a project team implies it will do one thing then suddenly does the opposite it is reasonable to think that many will be disappointed, including investors. And I can't help but note that I consider myself more of an investor in DERO, rather than a miner, since I stopped mining back in April and have instead showed my support by being a net-buyer of DERO on the open market.

Asic resistance per se is not a goal, only for miners who want to protect their investments. What Asic resistance stands for in the mind of investors is security of the network from attacks by concentrated hash power. As Dero team has said, many Asic resistant networks now have hidden Asics, which is a great danger and fooling investors who think they buy security.

I previously stated in this thread that I came to agree with the decision to stick with CN for PoW, but now I'm once again not so sure this was the correct decision, but for a different reason: what is going to happen to DERO's network when CN ASICs start failing and can't be replaced simply because there aren't any replacements? *If* DERO grows to the market cap of Monero then ASIC manufacturers will have incentive to make new generations (or batches, anyway) of CN miners, but as of now they certainly don't have any reason to continue producing them.

It would be a terrible irony if the decision that alienated CPU/GPU miners in the name of network security ended up making DERO totally dependent on a shrinking pool of ASIC miners that, ahem, undermines security.

Ummm... If irreplaceable ASICs started to fail, the network hashrate would drop and that would slowly lead back to GPU mining becoming competetive again.

You might want to dial back on the dismissiveness, because the reality is that GPU miners have long since moved their hardware over to other coins and probably don't even bother checking on the DERO network anymore; I know I haven't for several weeks.

In fact, DERO was already known as an ASIC-friendly coin by virtue of it being just that for the last ~3 months, and once it becomes more widely known that it intends to remain on original CryptoNight then it will be forever removed from consideration by GPU/CPU miners, just like nobody but the utter noob thinks about mining BTC with a GPU these days.

I think you need to dial back a little, yourself. Nothing lasts forever, including people's decision to mine or not mine something. If the math checks out and money can be made, somebody will mine.

Satoshi is too smart to not believe that Asics could be developed. I think he knew that something like that would happen.

You're right in that nothing lasts forever. That was a poor choice of words on my part. However, the most likely scenario I see occurring is that CN ASICs fail at a gradual rate and so there will be a long period of time where hashrate becomes more concentrated among fewer machines - perhaps entirely on a Bitmain pool, which would be even worse - yet is still too high (relative to DERO's price) to make mining it with a GPU worthwhile, much less attractive.

Even if that interval only lasts a few months it will be a serious vulnerability for the network, and that was more or less what I imagined happening when I made my earlier post.

On a theoretical level, I see your point. I'm just not sure how likely that scenario is. It does make sense in that regard I just don't see it as probable, personally.

How is that any different from you sarcastically insulting them? I'm not condoning their statements but you're just doing the same thing. If you would like to add to the conversation by explaining the validity of said points, by all means do. If you just want to troll, feel free to keep such comments to yourself.

This project is such a joke, if not an outright scam.

Still waiting on source code and team information.  You'd have to be crazy to run Dero's node/wallet until it's opened up and independently verified.  You've been warned people.

Cool story, bro.

Edit: the code for Atlantis isn't released yet (but either is Atlantis). The dero suite code has been released since the network switched to the golang version.

Anyway, troll away.
