After it became apparent that ASICs are currently mining on the Monero network, a lot of new threads appeared with the subject of ASIC resistance. In my opinion, it has gotten to the point where they are starting to clutter the subreddit. Therefore, I think it would be best to confine the discussion to this thread.

In addition, I invite the people that are in favor of allowing ASICs on the network to actually refute arguments made in the initial blog post that set out a somewhat formal stance on ASIC resistance.


To briefly provide some information regarding the upcoming scheduled protocol upgrade of ~ March 9:

  • Intended fork height of 1788000 (approximately March 9)

  • New release (0.14) will essentially be the 0.13.0.4 release (i.e. the release-v0.13 branch) + the consensus changes

  • Subsequent point release will include new features, bug fixes, and performance improvements that are currently present in master

  • PoW tweak will be CryptoNightR + a random change

  • Users ought to upgrade to the upcoming 0.14 release (CLI & GUI)

  • Pool operators ought to upgrade to the upcoming 0.14 release

  • Miners ought to upgrade their mining software to a version that supports the new PoW algorithm

  • Mobile wallet users (e.g. Cake Wallet, Monerujo, X wallet, MyMonero, Edge) ought to upgrade to a version that supports the consensus changes

  • Presumably MyMonero will also release a new version of their desktop apps that supports the consensus changes

  • You do not have to move / transfer your coins in advance of the scheduled protocol upgrade to be sufficiently prepared

  • As far as I can see (currently), this will be a consensual upgrade and thus no additional coin will be created

I'm Kris from Exodus, and I would like to invite the Reddit XMR community to come jump in the pool and share your experience of Monero in Eden with us. This is the first step to support of XMR in Exodus and we need some heavy real world use case testing and feedback. Let us know what we can do better.

Eden is the Alpha playground of Exodus, where we test future features and assets before they are released into the productions version of Exodus. There is no community support for Eden other than in our Slack Eden group, it's for advanced users who know their way around a block explorer and how to manage private keys.

Slack team invite: once there find the Eden channel and join.https://exodus-invite.herokuapp.com

Hey Monero community!

Just a heads up that the team at Cryptowat.ch has released an Asset View for Monero! This view gives basic information for now - an overview of Monero, social feeds, VWAP price mountain chart, and several exchanges Monero trades on.

If you check out the page, we would love your feedback on what we can include that would help people better understand and trade Monero. Leave us comments here or on twitter (we're @cryptowat_ch)


Here's the Monero Asset View.


This is what it looks like:
