Why?

We have been consistently raped by nice hashers.

How much?

10,000 WOW

What?

Zawy will look into improving the LWMA difficulty algorithm to better respond to on and off mining "attacks" from rig rental services, which pushes difficulty way up, screws up target solvetimes, and unfairly punishes loyal miners.

Milestones?

  • Finish coding LWMA-4 (5,000 WOW)
  • Run LWMA-4 on v10 testnet and make any needed tweaks (5,000 WOW)

Outcomes?

LWMA-4 code for v10 hard fork

Why you?

Zawy is the Yoda of difficulty algorithms. https://github.com/zawy12/difficulty-algorithms/issues/3
