This is kind of neat, and not critical to the future of Chia or the price of your XCH, but some SpaceFarmers.io Chia Pool members have taken it among themselves to try and noticeably affect the rate of BlueBox timelord compactification. And they have.
So what is going on is on the SpaceFarmers discord server, in the #Timelords channel, is that they are competing and collaborating with each on who can get BlueBox timelords running the best. There are no prizes, other than ego, and there is no incentive for them to do this. They just are, as I called for so long ago. It warms my heart. When I asked them why they were doing this, the answer I got was:.
why? mainly for fun, i think 🙂 and because our poor plotters idling around kindly asked for some useful work. and because we wondered if we could have a noticeable impact on the https://www.arewecompactifiedyet.live/ curve. turns out we can.earl, SpaceFarmer
This is a super good project, and I think anyone else interested in doing this should head on over to the SpaceFarmers discord, join the #timelord channel and start smashing some blocks. There are a LOT of blocks left to compactify, and a lot of idle plotters out there. I am going to try and set one up this weekend.
