About this Episode

@hyc_symas -- the creator of RandomJS (the genesis of RandomX)
Tevador -- the lead developer of RandomX
Needmoney90 -- Monero Reddit moderator and all things Monero expert.

We discuss what transpired during the recent IRC developers meeting on a Proof of Work plan of action for Monero. Particularly, we discuss the communities goal of implementing RandomX in October (if an audit is successfully completed by then) and what the following steps will be if RandomX does not successfully thwart Asics -- switching to SHA-3 or another egalitarian proof of work. All-in-all it is exciting times as we watch the developers reach consensus on a plan of action to uphold one of Monero's tenants -- maintaining a decentralized mining network.

I also gave Howard, NeedMoney90, and Tevador an opportunity to respond to the Kristy Leigh Minehan interview: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZZZF4BqIDrk
