The year is 2022: ASICs and huge farms roar Hundreds of Millions of Terahashes in order to mint a bitcoin block. my biggest fear is that some attacker or government may use ASICs or similar dedicated hardware to compute numbers to access private keys in order to drain monero from wallets; I know that there are countless possible private keys, but I am not sure if such cryptography is really that safe considering the amount of numbers generate by asics; I am not citing quantum computers or military counter-cryptography, I am talking about current hardware/tech. Is wallet mining a real threat? can monero fork itself to counter huge asic-like farms dedicated to generate user's private keys? am I being paranoid?
