As an Ethereum 'fan' I have to ask myself a couple of very simple questions.....
Am I utilising my hardware and underlying investment to support the growth, development and expansion of Ethereum only to be dumped if and when Ethereum goes to POS?
If the answer is yes, my short term plan is to switch mining to another coin that I can use my GPU’s to mine, grow, develop and expand. This is not an advert or diversion so I will just say we all know, or should all know what the alternatives are. If you don’t please PM me.
If the answer is No, I will not lose out and be dumped I will continue to mine Ethereum.
It is us, the small hobbyist / home / small business miners who have the power as a collective to decide what goes up and what goes down. This is the beginning.
There are Ethereum, like for like, alternatives that we could mine albeit at the moment with a lesser return, but that would surely change if the support of the collective diverted to the lesser coin.
I think I can speak for all of us by saying that we all share a common goal: To support the growth, development and expansion of something that in return (Fact: we don't do this for love), will give us a steady income based on our hardware investment and most importantly reciprocal loyalty for our participation, investment and backing.
Lastly: I have a bad feeling that the answer is so clear that it’s transparent. If it turns out that Ethereum switches to POS and pulls the ladder up behind it after burning the bridge, it will be a great big smack in the face with a wet fish followed by an endless repeating annoying voice in my head repeating the word….”sucker”. I don’t want to end up sectioning myself!
So my fellow gpu miners, please help me/us to answer these questions as I can’t help thinking that I’m either stupid or blinded by the bright lights.
