Hey all, want to shift focus for a quick second. Lately, there has been a lot of discussion around ProgPOW, a new mining algorithm designed to favor GPU miners over ASICs. It has become a highly politicized discussion, and it’s not outside the realm of possibility that Ethereum could have another contentious split. Some worry how a contentious split might harm the DeFi ecosystem (could MakerDAO even survive on both forks?)
To what extent does MKR governance want to weigh in on this matter (and any other future Ethereum governance issues)? A lot of the wider Ethereum community might look to this community to throw support for one side or another (perhaps through a governance poll).
I think it could be interesting to preemptively have a light discussion surrounding the topic. I think, in any event, Maker will need to (somehow) choose a side in case something happens, so probably better to start talking about this sooner rather than later.
