With all the debate about ProgPoW being contentious and causing a chain split, I thought now would be a good time to explain why this is a good thing!
All the idiots will try to keep the old, non-progpow, non-EF supported chain alive, and they will buy the shitty fork coin from you at a good price. You can then sell them to have more ETH!
Just like every smart ETH holder sold their ETC EthClassic shitcoins at 0.25 and increased their ETH stack by 25%.
I say please let's do a chain split, I'll be very happy to sell my shitty forked coins to increase my ETH holdings.
"Ethereum Classic Classic" will go nowhere. Please let's launch ProgPoW and have a chain split as soon as possible!

Zilliqa has been praised in the past by quite a few respected people in the crypto space, but the project has only ever seen a bear market and I‘m not sure they’ve delivered much since ICO.
Is a project people are still looking at and respect?

I've been struggling to find anywhere, either a sub, discord, forum, anything that is focused on nfts and nft trading. Does anyone have suggestions?
Also anything targeted specifically at discussing ethereum based games would also be great.

So the ProgPow buzz is exploding again in this sub with everyone having a panic attack because we're supposedly going along with this EIP.
"Oh no! We cannot proceed! This is a contentious change that will split the chain!" -average comment
But what makes this contentious? Really.
Nobody is able to articulate a real reason other then repeating that contentious word, as if it that word alone was the explanation.
Can we dig deeper?
Disclaimer: I mine ETH with GPUs. And I'll stake ETH on POS.
The ethereum whitepaper specifically mentions "poisoning the well" should ASICs be discovered. Meaning, a mining algorithm tweak/change to disrupt ASICs.
We have both Bitmain and Lindhzi that have publicly announced/sold Ethash ASICs.
Thus we now have a situation that satisfies the whitepaper intent and a mining algorithm change can be considered.
Sounds straightforward enough, only that it's not.
The ProgPow code is ready for over two years now and we've suffered endless delays and roadblocks regarding its implementation.
I don't understand why the people against it are against.
Various demands have been made to validate the code, security, etc. And the audits have all been successful.
What else is the blocker today?
It seems to me that the initial anti-ProgPow propaganda of ASIC manufacturers last year has sipped into the minds of people to the point that all they remember is the word contention. But can't articulate what makes it contentious.
It's a very peculiar state to be in.
If the ASIC influencers were able to steer the narrative in such a way for just an algorithm change, what will happen when Ethereum's POS will be ready?
Will those ASIC lobbies just gracefully shut down their ASICs and go home? Don't think so. They'll wage a FUD war on POS to extend POW and sabotage POS because of the millions of dollars invested in their purpose built devices.
By being against ProgPow today, you guys are potentially making the transition to POS down the road that much harder.
And if, as some say, there's really no ASIC threat today, then great! Let's implement ProgPow as a deterrent, all miners will happily follow the new chain and there's absolutely no possible reason for a chain split. You do remember that block vote of last year where all new blocks had the yes vote for ProgPow right?

I know the idea of tokenizing tangible assets has been hot (and cold). But let's say, a physical product was tokenized like an island. X number of interested investors purchase this "Island" token. The price of the token goes up and down, just like any other investment. Fine. But what happens when the island is purchased? Do the investors receive the money from the purchase? Who would be the custodian of the island in this case? Thoughts...

I've been working as a Web Developer for the last ~3 years and recentlly I decided to learn smart contracts development in Solidity. I've been playing around with it a little bit since and I think I already get the basics, so in order to test my skills and gain some traction I decided to start developing a simple Web Dapp (a game).
A few questions appeared in my head, so if you can help me with any of those, I'll be really glad:
I ask all of this because there seems to be an incomparable amout of development going on around Ethereum in relation to any other cryptocurrency. I've been spending most of my time following Bitcoin (since 2015) and then Bitcoin Cash, so I can tell that BCH community seems to be quite enthusiastic about any project involving BCH, whereas ETH at first glance seems to be in quite a different "phase", experiencing rather the shortage of users than developers.
Anyway, I'm planning to go forward with my little dapp regardless, since I'm mostly doing it to learn, but I would really like to know your opinion ;)
