ShelbyMooreIII is promoting AnonyMint and/or AnonyCash as a concept* cryptocurrency based on a disk-space intensive algorithm. Some details are given here: http://anonymint.org/#Proof-of-Work_Designs
What would be the positive or negative impact of this kind of software on:
- The disk you're running it on
- The CPU/GPU of the PC
- The HDD market
- The environmental effects of increased disk manufacture (I'm assuming here that such a currency would cause an increase in production)
- Anything else substantially affected
*I don't know what stage of development AnonyMint is at.
