[Opinion] Chia Founder: Doesn’t Want Its Related “Farming Pool” to Create a Monopoly
On June 3, Chia’s founder Bram Cohen and his team shared the latest information and progress on the Chia farming pool protocol at the official Chia video conference “Chia Pools for Pool Operators”. The Chia team does not want to create a monopolistic situation with its associated “farming pools”, and even if such a situation is created in some cases, they will ensure that these large farming pools cannot do evil. (A “farming pool” is the equivalent of a “mining pool” for other blockchain projects, and Chia officially refers to the process of obtaining block rewards as “farming farming,” which corresponds to “mining mining” for other projects. Mariano S., one of the leaders of the farming pool protocol in the Chia team, said that in most mining pool protocols under the Proof of Work mechanism, the pool creates the blocks and the miners do the hash collisions. The “creation of blocks” is directly linked to the “issuance of token rewards,” which gives the pool a great deal of control over the mechanism.
