being a miner myself, I see one of the big problems in the mining field. ASIC's are very unsustainable at making profit, and quickly turn into scrap as something better comes along. (even though they can be super profitable at first)
What this does is centralize the wealth creation into the very first and wealthiest people who come and to buy, and drains the profits quickly for anyone else trying to get it. After the profits are drained, the equiptment becomes junk.
GPU mining is great because its a lot more doable for the average person (at a cost level) serves multiple uses and different coins, and allows a person to custom build their system, which they can update and upgrade as they move along.
So, why not just sell the parts for making ASIC rigs, and let mining enthusiasts build their own? I bet it would be a lot cheaper, and a lot more people could get their hands on ASIC chips.
it would expand the mining further to more people. more decentralization.
So why is this not being done? Do you think this could be a good idea? What do you project would happen?
