"In January 2014, programmers contrived algorithms which enable BitShares mining on graphics cards (GPUs). This has allowed substantial mining speed increases. One remarkable thing about BitShares is that where previous cryptocurrency algorithms (SHA-256 and Scrypt-based) could be “mined” up to a trillion times faster with GPUs and ASICs (large arrays of custom-programmed chips), BitShares' Momentum Proof Of Work (MPOW) algorithm has proved very resistant to such exploits. So far, even the highest-end GPUs have only achieved, at most, about an eighteen-fold speed increase against MPOW."
Hmm you are talking about protoshare right ? Or maybe you wanted to use the "Bitshares" instead of protoshare just not to confuse people ??
Like Bytemaster said MPOW will no longer be used in Bitshare, now 3I will be implementing the whole thing with a even more elegant solution eliminating completely the process of mining. With Consensus + Proof of Stake algorithm , there is no more mining and this is radical new approach that has many benefits.
Just this part could change how the cryptoworld will work in the future.
Good work !!! Regardless of the success of Bitshares there are so many completely new revolutionary ideas, that your ebook it worth writing it no matter what !!
