[Voting Proposal] Autolykos v.2

Dear miners!

We are starting a new poll on improving memory-hardness of the Autolykos, Ergo’s Proof-of-Work scheme. Last poll did show support for the updated Autolykos, but mining hashrate changed a lot since then.

Algorithm changes draft is available at https://github.com/ergoplatform/eips/pull/22/files .

In short changes to the https://ergoplatform.org/docs/ErgoPow.pdf are as follows:

he proposed changes are:

Alg. 2, line 4: m || nonce => pk || w || m || nonce
Alg. 2, line 5: H(j|M|pk|m|w) => H(j|pk|w|M|m)

And lines 3 and 6 in the Alg. 1 to be changed correspondingly.

Let’s use “storage fee factor” parameter (so cost of storing 1 byte for 4 years) for the voting. Current value is 1,250,000.

So if you support Autolykos v.2, please vote for increasing this parameter, e.g.

voting {
    1 = 1400000
  }

otherwise, skip voting.

Example of the node config:

ergo {
  node {
    mining = true
  }

  voting {
    1 = 1500000
  }
}
