GRIN Cuckoo POW algo
John TROMP

Introduction;

TROMP: PoW is not only the simplest known consensus mechanism, but just as importantly, the only known provably fair distribution mechanism, where no party has an advantaged access to coins.

‘’ Are There Any Public Cryptocurrency/Blockchain Projects Seriously Rivaling Grin’s Simplicity? ‘’

TROMP: The feature I most want to see in the future is some **Zero Knowledge Proof (ZKP) alternative accelerated sync. Grin’s sync, especially the new *PIBD is great, and gives the most confidence of a correct history. But it takes time and space linear in history length (downloading and verifying all kernels).

TROMP: It’s hard not to see a bright future for Mimblewimble’s brilliant design which I think Grinツ takes most advantage of. Keeping things simple, elegant, and fair, all have lasting value, maximizing the potential future interest in Grin. So yes, I think Grinツ will be successful in getting more mindshare in the next few decades, even if not reaching a marketcap measured in billions.
