Below is the original post, but the bounty has increased to 10500 grlc.

UPDATE 2022-02-13:

  • A few clarifications, payout will be the sole discretion of a 2/3 majority rules vote between CoffeeandTV, notafoolsgarden and myself.
  • I will occasionally round the payout number, but will pay the highest value listed that is clearly not a mistake.  I will pay the difference if required.
  • There is an additional requirement that the performance on smaller current gen cards cannot be ignored, since this was pointed out as requiring clarity.

I believe the lack of efficient open source mining software is an issue for the future of Garlicoin.  While I understand the right for developers to make closed source miners, and encourage them to do so if they choose, there is a huge difference in the efficiency of the private access closed source miners and the open source widely available ones.

Issues this causes:

  • More electricity use for less security

  • Less environmentally friendly for less security

  • Longer ROI for miners with AMD cards

  • Increases the likelihood of a private 51% attack

In my view, this is absolutely something that needs to be addressed as soon as practical.  I plan to increase the bounty as I collect support from other individuals, in order to auction the bounty and ensure developers are rewarded as they see fair.
