I haven’t followed the news on ETH and mining for a while, but have heard that ethereum is forking to allow for asic resistance (antminers ect.) by increasing the necessary GB of memory needed.
So my question is: What GB is required currently and when will the next ‘update’ occur (if there even is info on this)?
And also, I also heard ETH is going to ETH 2.0 - making mining ETH impossible. When will this occur?
Will other ethash coins be affected aswell? If I use nicehash to mine with will the profitability go down because major coins are leaving?
Many thanks in advance and see you tomorrow!
