Along with the activation of the Protocol “Bulletproofs” during hard forks Monero has been also implemented an algorithm preventing the manufacturers to create specialized equipment for mining eponymous cryptocurrency monero (XMR).

As told Saran, Noether (Sarang Noether), the developer of Monero Research Lab, who led the work on the Protocol “Bulletproofs” the team hopes to see the result of update network graphs of the growth of the blockchain. The media also suggested that by reducing transactional commissions cryptocurrency XMR will have more owners. One of the main developers of Monero added that the purpose of the update was to make the idea of micropayments more attractive.
