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.

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.

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.

And I will take them all.

Look at your community now... They are so smart, coming out with valid points and just calling people stupid. You keep the brightest!!!

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.

Everyone knows there is no such supportive team as DERO in crypto world.

Yeah, just look at their "support" for hobbyist/GPU miners.

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.

Perhaps, but what is certain right now is that if a CN ASIC fails you can't buy a new replacement for it. If DERO - or other CN coins - become wildly popular in the future (as defined by market cap), then more CN ASICs might be produced, but there could still be a long lead time between an upswing in price/market cap and an ASIC manufacturer responding to it. Furthermore, another situation all but guaranteed to happen at some point is DERO not being the most profitable CN coin to mine so most of the ASICs switch away from it; that would also cause a collapse in hashrate that could be exploited.

Basically, the point I am trying to make here is that sticking with an ASIC'ed algo does not necessarily improve network security. The only (current) way for coin devs to truly secure a consensus-based PoW algo is to hold the majority of hashrate themselves, otherwise you are trusting strangers to not gang up on you (which kinda fails the "trustless" criterion, eh?).

On a separate note, I caught most of the wild pie-fight on Discord today between a bunch of TurtleCoin supporters and --Serena--. Rather than editorialize I'll just reprint one of her comments and let the gentle reader draw his or her own conclusions:

I can say one thing for sure though
Turtlecoin is a shitcoin, that is all.

Ya, trying to put someone on blast is super classy in comparison.

I don't blame her, they basically raided the dero discord.

Just addressed source code thing. Quit trolling about it. Who cares who the devs are if they deliver?

Remember when people didn't need to know the real life identities of a coin's devs? Pepperidge farm remembers.

I forget, who developed the first version of bitcoin, again?

-------Atlantis mainnet upgrade in a few hours-------

We've asked the exchanges to disable their wallets, and we're preparing to switch to the Atlantis mainnet sometime in the next few hours. We're confirming that the pool software is configured and working for everyone for a few hours, and then the mainnet is going to go live. We anticipate 1 - 2 hours of downtime while we switch onto the Atlantis mainnet. Details regarding how to sync, and any other relevant information will be released with the mainnet launch.

Can everyone please stop transactions on the current mainnet and the Atlantis testnet until further notice. We will let everyone know when things are running smoothly after we've had a chance to test the mainnet when it goes live
