Just for the meme of it, I imagine a way to also incentivize a little economic development could be just a xDai native mineable POW coin. We can give it some 1Hive flavour. It wouldn’t serve a real practical purpose other than for gambling unless it gains traction. I suppose there would be intrinsic value given that in the worst-case scenario people could just farm passively with their PC’s.
Dev swarm can just fork the 0xBTC code that is anyways EVM.
extra points: we make a minecraft server and pow is basically the server recording how many stone/coal/… anything that needs a pickaxe blocks you’ve mined
