I just used a big word in an important thing and I am totally an adult now :eyebrowwiggle:

Does anyone understand the advantage of complex proof-of-work algorithms for cryptocurrencies?

I stumbled upon "cuckoo cycle" the other day. It was supposed to be ASIC-resistant but it turns out it isn't.

So why use it instead of a simple and well-studied hash? The *only* point of POW is to prove you own expensive hardware and you have wasted a lot of electricity, right? So why waste any code and create potential vulnerabilities? Genuinely interested in answers if anyone has more insight.

Hi Friends, I'm looking for a new full-time position for something related to distributed systems. I'm a full stack dev with a strong knowledge base in p2p systems. I'd really appreciate introductions to anybody that would be interested in my skills.

@rysiek I think this is a fundamental issue with having the power to choose the technology and the responsibility for deploying it separated, and with the "throw it over the wall" approach generally.

My company ultimately revoked "every team their own CEO" for precisely this reason. There is no such thing as something only one team is going to need to support.

"Mozilla's view of the Orkney Cloud Project is very much as a work in progress. As is often the case, major efforts like this come in a series of active phases over a period of several years and blend data-gathering, experimentation, implementation, and refinement. Certainly we at Mozilla will spend time with the Project team after this current phase has completed to translate lessons learned into practices we can begin implementing with Mozilla communities around the world."
