What's this?

[–]bip37 0 points1 point  (2 children)

That's the stratum command the S7 uses with pools that support it to enable AsicBoost.

Here is the AsicBoost website:


It actually says 'patent-pending'.

[–]GandalfBitcoin[S] 0 points1 point  (5 children)

    How so? The number of ASIC manufacturers is tiny, the costs to enter the baker are already huge, and ASICBoost is available for anyone to license. What's the major problem here?

    Wasn't there talk of censoring miners due to the fact that this technology is patented?

    [–]BeastmodeBisky 3 points4 points  (0 children)

    Disabling it in general to level the field for everyone maybe. Not censoring any specific miners afaik.
