Consensus 2018 debated who will win: ASICs or GPUs
Consensus has become the center of controversy among professionals regarding the eternal confrontation between ASICs vs GPUs.
As part of Consensus 2018, a discussion was launched on the confrontation between ASICs vs GPUs. Its beginning fell on the role of ASICs in mining and the reality of the possible threat of using such a technique in mining to decentralize the cryptocurrency sector as a whole..
During the discussion, Marco Strand, CEO of Genesis mining, stated that the GPU is the most decentralized mining hardware on the planet. He was countered by Gideon Powell, CEO of Autonomous Crypto Corp, saying that while ASICs do not appear to be decentralized, their main advantage is mining power, as well as greater security. Both sides found support.
Additionally, during the discussion, the role of the government in the regulation of mining and the possibility of creating partner support was discussed..
