We can observe an geometric growth in the computation power dedicated to the processing of SHA-256 with ASIC.
All this goes to Bitcoin and some of it's memes.
But can it hold?
No ecosystem have such a growth rate without failure in time.
Should we anticipate, and plan ahead another use for those ASIC rigs?
Can such computation power be used for Ethereum?
I am far from the level of Ethereum coders, but I am confident SHA-256 can be used in Ethereum in a way that authorize the recycling of the old (and future old) ASIC rigs.
Same logic applies to "script-ASIC-mining"
I understood that, by design, Ethereum forbids the use of ASIC.
But I believe as well, after reading the papers of Vitalik, that Ethereum will take over Bitcoin (and by extension over the other alt-coins).
I understood that the integration of Open Transaction is as well to permit having Contracts including any cryptocurrency.
My point is how to recycle what will soon or later be a HUGE obsolete distributed supercomputer dedicated to SHA-256.
Thank you for your time.
