Is there a small, efficient, miner out there that most Bitcoin users/enthusiasts could use to contribute to the network? I'm not talking about being a professional miner. I'm speaking of simply setting something up that doesn't require like a 220V, or any highly technical skillset, without regard for any ROI potential, to help contribute to, and protect, our network?
If not, we need one. I don't know if it ideally should be a 2.5 – 5W USB device, or maybe however big one could be to run off a solar panel, or what… but I assume the technology isn't going to advance at the rate it has over the first few years of ASICs. Perhaps now someone could develop a miner for the rest of us. An emphasis on efficiency, and overall consumption being below some max, so that just about anyone can contribute without having to heavily augment their budget.
We need to refocus on decentralization, and privacy, if we want to keep Bitcoin.
