Hey Ethereum Community,
Let us know whether or not you support ProgPoW:
ProgPoW is a change to the proof of work mining algorithm that's intended to be more ASIC-resistant than the existing algorithm, ethash. ProgPoW has been debated over the past months in various circles in the Ethereum community.
We have noticed a lot of trolling and shills on both sides of the debates from anonymous accounts on forums, youtube, telegram, glitter, reddit and twitter. There is no way to know if these accounts are real people who actually have economic stakes in ethereum, or are simply fake troll or shill accounts funded by one side of the debate.
Ether token holders are among the people who are going to be financially and economically impacted the most by this decision.
We have decided to give them a chance to make their voices heard on whether or not they think changing the proof of work to ProgPoW is a good idea.
This vote is simply an additional signal for the community to look at. It is not a binding or final say in the decision, but we believe it is a signal from those who have actual economic stake at risk and should have their voices heard.
We encourage all ether token holders to participate.
If you are pool operator, please add PPYE to your node's extra-data field to signal for ProgPoW or PPNO to oppose it.
