So, will it be PoW or PoS or PoX?

IIRC in the very beginning Ethereum was supposed to be mined via PoS. Then people started talking about PoW. And recently someone mentioned PoS (DPoS). Is there a deadline when the mining algo will be finally chosen? Maybe it's already known what the algo will be?

    We're aiming for either a turing complete PoW algo, or a randomized hash function every thousand nonces. The algo has not been decided on yet, there is no deadline. We are also considering PoW/PoS hybrid.

    I suspect that the community won't "allow" u to choose pure PoW algo without an effective countermeasure against botnet masters. Looks like I have to wait a little bit longer... Thank u for the answer.
