ASICs are the best way to secure the blockchain.

Yeah bring on the asic miners! The scrypts I have been mining for months will come into their own! Necessity being the mother of invention, a new coin will pop up for graphics cards. Thorcoin is already jane scrypt. Maybe it will get some love from the out of work graphic card miners.

ASICs supporters can say all they want, GPU miners will continue to GPU mine on new algorythm coins
It's the only path to ROI while ASICs is the path to ruin and manufacturers scamming

Mining is work and is taking a lot of time, and really imo currently it is not even worth the time if you are not a "believer"
Though people may be willing to work for almost nothing, nobody is willing to work for loosing no sane GPU miner wants ASICs

Crypto is not only about technics, it needs to not fuck up almost every early adopters...and with all the scams, steals, exchanges failures and this bear market, i'm sure LOTS of early adopters/investors got raped
Really i don't think that would not be too much if all the miners from november/december, like me, could at least ROI can keep your cryptos for the few survivors of this huge mess for years or decades

Amateur hour is over boys. Buck up or get off the horse!   Cheesy My rig...Been running for over 2 weeks now.

I upgraded from my 8 r9 280x's 5.5mh to 30-32MH with the addition of 80 gridseeds.

Did you do any research into the quality of those things? $20k is a lot to dump on something that could be fried in a month or two.
