On the progpow audit



Opening this thread as a general purpose place for the community to discuss the upcoming progpow audit being handled by the Ethereum Cat Herders at the request of the All Core Devs. Please post questions or comments and we’ll do our best to make sure that all parties weigh in.


Could you clarify little bit what’s the purpose of this audit?


To delay ProgPoW, while we define exactly what the audit is and how to do it :grin: Seriously though, I think this may end up being the best approach. Monero is already ahead of us on this path, and has some serious potential problems ahead.


I’ve another question, I was wondering why EF struggling with funding ProgPow audit. Is it really necessary to fund security audit with bounties?
