Sia Proof-of-Work Reset


  • Global Moderator

    After much discussion with the community and an in-depth look into the economics of ASIC manufacturing, the Sia core team has decided to reset the Sia Proof-of-Work function to brick the Bitmain and Innosilicon hardware. We are making this decision after much discussion and careful deliberation over the implications that this will have for the Sia network. We believe that this decision builds the best future for Sia, and sets an example for others in the cryptocurrency ecosystem going through similar challenges.

    Also to be noted:
    A3's and Inno ASICs will still be usable on the Hyperspace network.

    Happy Mining.
