Merging EThash is probably one of the heaviest things you can do for Aeon in regards to speed, sync time, and lightweightness of the blockchain. That would be a step backwards along with allowing hundreds of Mh from gpu farms to overrun a small cap coin. Please explain how moving forward with K12 did not achieve community consensus? There were 2 weeks of solid discussion between all avenues of the community and even Smooth himself agreed that there was an overwhelming support for the change going forward. " in general we want to stabilize this portion of the protocol so there is not a need for mining-economics-driven forks" https://www.reddit.com/r/Aeon/comments/b6d18h/switch_to_kangarootwelve_proof_of_work_by_stoffu/ejjoeii/ Yes, every project wants people to support it via mining, and with k12 you still will be able to even with CPU power. There are no known asics for k12 *right now* but there will be fpga bitstreams available and entry-level fpga miners will be around $200 usd and more advanced fpga are available for $3200-4500. All things aside mining wise, giving a week to fork a coin would be a disaster, especially if there is a minimal community effort to help move that process along.
