What is Hirocoin?
With professional Scrypt mining hardware on the way it is time to look for the best alternative hashing solution that will keep crypto currency within reach of everyone. ASIC Scrypt miners look to be expensive and may result in Scrypt coins being mined by professional companies. There may be a time when Scrypt is mined only by the few who can afford to invest heavily. This breaks the decentralization at the heart of crypto currency. KNc plans to bring out their 250MH Scrypt ASIC by Q2/Q3.
For Hirocoin we decided to follow the X11 hashing solution. We would recommend that others follow this lead, the more support for X11 out there the better the tools will be. X11 may well become the most popular GPU hashing solution out there. We hope to get Hirocoin in a prominent place when this time comes. GPU miners having to leave Bitcoin gave a huge boost to Scrypt based coins like Litecoin. When GPU miners leave Scrypt they will look for an efficient alternative and X11 is what they are looking for.
