Vertcoin is committed to ASIC resistance and fair mining. One of the major points (if not, the whole point) in the creation of cryptocurrencies is to not have a central point of failure. Increased centralization increases the chances of network failure. We support Monero in their fight against the Antminer X3 and their fork happening in April. With the rumors of an ASIC being created for Ethereum, we urge Ethereum to continue with their vision they set out in their whitepaper to stymie ASICs. We urge all coins, not just the ones without ASICs, to join the fight against ASICs and Bitmain for the security and continued decentralization of each respective networks.
