A nitpicker in me itches to amend :) The complexity of XRP and sifcoin does not just slow down development, it rather implies hitting architectural limitations of GPUs. Essentially, for complex algorithms you need memory, and it, or rather its fast kind, lacks in GPUs severely. It is the downside of having a huge number of cores.
