RandomX for CPU mining on DigiByte

RandomX mining (Screenshot for Monero, direct compatibility with DGB RPC being worked on)
  • RandomX implementation, based on DigiByte 8.19.0 branch (which is currently in development)
  • A reset of the Testnet and clean upgrade to test and confirm RandomX compatibility
  • Confirmation of Regtest compatibility (Important for Exchanges / Pools for rapid implementation)
  • Compatibility with existing RandomX miners (Such as XMRig) such that they won’t need any modifications to “play nice” with DigiByte RandomX
    - This is especially important given RandomX was written for Monero, with Monero RPC calls etc and is not immediately compatible with DigiByte and Bitcoin-forked codebases
  • Optimization of RandomX for current generation CPU’s (Ryzen 3XXX series etc)
  • An attempt at confirmation of compatibility with ARM-based mobile-mining

Where to next?

What about ProgPoW though?

So, this will be compatible with existing software?

Is DigiByte mobile-mining with RandomX possible?

Is this code available anywhere else to help speed up the implementation process?

If this funding goes ahead, when will this RandomX upgrade be released?

What about blockchain consensus?

Let’s get to it then!
