In a new blog post about SSD endurance on their official blog and the effect of plotting on SSDs, and overall a very detailed write-up of the mechanics of plotting, Jonmichael Hands of Chia Network has teased a new contest that they will be holding.
There are no details as of yet, but the tease is contained in a section of the post about Bladebit (which I haven’t covered at all, sorry) and Mad Max so my hope is that the contest is a mechanism to reward them for their hard work for the community.
I don’t want to summarize the blog post because I think you should read it in its entirety. It is very detailed and better work than I will ever be able to do on the subject. Thank you to the Speedmann for the tip
