Sounds like the overeenstemming of core developers is that wij should not do anything at this time regarding the asics fork proposal, Hudson Jameson, an ethereum developer, stated after a public discussion inbetween ethereum developers.

This is not bitcoin, miners are not ter control, if they get evil, wij’ll just speed up Casper’s development, Vitalik Buterin said.
The Bitmain asics miners is only Two.Five times more efficient, Buterin argued. It looks like it’s just a more efficient laptop of sorts, he said. That means if eth forks the algorithm would have to be something which is not I/O corded, like sha3.
However he voiced concerns overheen the time it would take to implement that algorithm and whether it would delay other developments. Strongly lean towards no act, he said.
Casper FFG, or hybrid Proof of Work (PoW) / Proof of Stake (PoS) Casper is at the 2nd stage of testnet, Buterin said. Totally ready for Geth/Parity to commence implementing.

It is te the process of being verified and checked, but if 51% concerns demanded wij can just skip audit and verification stages, Buterin said.
If Geth and Parity make it a high priority to implement Casper FFG, that gives insurance, Buterin argued.
The verification process would take around Five and a half months, Danny, an eth dev, said. It embarked around mid-march, he said. There has bot solid progress, daily.
Nick Johnson, another eth dev, said he does not think the current situation justifies a fork on its own, but it could be roll out into the next planned fork.
Undoubtedly agree with that, Buterin said, arguing a fork on its own just for asics wasgoed not justifiable but could potentially be included te a planned fork.

Sounds like the overeenstemming of core devs is that wij should not do anything at this time, Hudson Jameson concluded after not one dev spoke te protección of a proposed asics fork.
The developers further discussed coding an asics resistant algorithm, with Buterin stating maybe spil backup but ter parallel with other work so that it doesn’t slow down other work.
Te regards to whether asics would have an effect on hybrid Casper, Buterin said a 51% attack could prevent the finalization of fresh blocks, spil ter check-points, but can not pauze finality, spil te blocks already check-pointed.
Wij can add a fork-choice rule to Casper where it should be prefered if it has a larger number of Casper/PoS votes, Buterin said.
So that if the attacking mining chain rejects to include, but good man chain includes, that should make a 51% attack very week, he said.
The developers made it clear that if nonetheless the broader community insists on such fork they could make a proposal, but the concentrate for now seems to very much be on getting Casper FFG out, which might go live spil soon spil this Autumn.
