Monero is about to adopt RandomX algorithm

The Monero team will upgrade the algorithm in approximately 5.5 hours, revising the algorithm to a new long-term proof-of-work algorithm, RandomX, to improve privacy and user experience, and reduce the workload of supporting services and transactions. Earlier, the Monero team stated that it would change its PoW consensus algorithm to RandomX. The Monero developer team believes that to keep the network secure, ASICs must be kept away from their networks.
