Is EIP-969 suffucient to uphold ASIC resistance in the near future?

"ASIC resistance" used as a shorthand for "resistance to specialised mining hardware"

"Near future" - in the coming 3-6 months; as the first generation of the hardware in question is poised to become commercially available to the public.

Proposal on modifying the hashing algorithm: https://github.com/ethereum/EIPs/issues/958

Method in question to achieve the above goal: http://eips.ethereum.org/EIPS/eip-969

General overview and discussion: https://www.reddit.com/r/ethereum/comments/8bkkv1/asic_resistant_hard_fork_discussion_overview/

Notes on answers:

  • "Don't know" - insufficient qualification; or haven't reviewed EIP-969 details (and no other answer applies); or similar.
  • "Can't be known" - there is insufficient data on the hardware in question at this point in time.
