Altcoin devs: "We'll just make our mining scripts inefficient for ASICs so that people have to use normal graphics cards to mine."

Nvidia: "We'll sell you 'graphics' cards without display outputs for mining."

@raucao interesting isn't it. i guess ultimately such measures will either be ineffective, or be too powerful and damage other use cases - or both! :)

@waxwing @raucao one way or another, on a long enough timescale, we can hope that the free market will ultimately reconcile bad ideas ('ASIC-proofness')
