Such changes may include or result in the elimination for support for and/or the efficient use of chips used by BIT3 MINING. In addition, blockchain developers may also determiner to modify the cryptographic verification process such that the blockchains can no longer be verified through proof-of-work and instead adopt proof-of-stake methodologies.
3.7. PROOF-OF-WORK REPLACEMENT RISK.
In addition to blockchain modification risk, blockchain developers may also determine to modify the cryptographic verification process such that the blockchains can no longer be verified through proof-of-work and instead adopt proof-of-stake methodologies.
