@JamesGDAngelo Also, because it’s possible to make a change that simultaneously centralizes some aspects while decentralizing others…

@JamesGDAngelo Right; my problem with the debate is that many aspects of centralization are not measurable & arguments are speculative.

@JamesGDAngelo I imagine that we’d need to have a separate self-adjusting block difficulty for each algorithm as well.

@JamesGDAngelo Rotating PoW algorithm wouldn’t be able to be random, though; it would have to be deterministic and be a finite set of algos.
