  • According to Hancock, the Ethereum (ETH) community is not looking to change or discuss the best possible way of this problem.

On 21 February 2020, the issues with Ethereum Classic (ETC) on the very popular mining Antminer E3 were revealed by the 2Miners Pool. According to their first report, it was clear that Ethereum (ETH) would suffer the same lot.

With his warning, he is pointing towards the unresolved issues with Ethereum (ETH) and Ethereum Classic (ETC) mining on Antminer E3 devices.

This application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) is unable to process the increased DAG file and thus will be failed to do so. Two weeks ago The Ethereum Classic (ETC) hash rate dropped by a factor of 6-7 (from 180-200 MH/s to 30 MH/s). Whereas, the same limitation will be faced by Ethereum (ETH) mining in April too.

According to Hancock, the Ethereum (ETH) community is not looking to change or discuss the best possible way of this problem.  He relates some of its members hindered by the ProgPoW drama to untroubled the passengers of RMS Titanic.

Safeguard for Ethereum (ETH) mining

Tweeting the solution for this upcoming disaster, Hancock projected two possible solutions. The first one is patching Ethash’s vulnerability, the Ethereum (ETH) mining algorithm. The second is fixing the size of the DAG file by developers.

James Hancock is sure that ‘doing nothing’ will be the worst option for Ethereum (ETH) hashrate in any case, as the fall will deteriorate the security of the network.
