Obelisk Releases Code To Fork Siacoin To Remove Bitmain’s ASIC Miner Ability


Recommended Posts

Great news for anyone mining Siacoin in the future via Obelisk miners:



The Obelisk startup is relatively new to the mining industry, but they have a new protocol in place that could revolutionize how hardware is used. They recently unveiled a new code on their system that would help eliminate the need for Bitmain’s chip-based mining hardware. The new code would let those in charge of the mining to exclude the devices that made ASIC mining possible, so it would no longer be compatible with the updated software.

In a statement, Obelisk noted,

“This will give the sia community the ability to fork and could invalidate all non-Obelisk siacoin ASIC miners on the forked chain.”
