ASIC Resistant

ASIC resistant refers to cryptocurrencies designed to prevent users from mining with ASIC. It is a design or algorithm of a blockchain that aims to prevent or discourage the use of specialized mining hardware known as Application-Specific Integrated Circuits (ASICs). ASICs are highly efficient and powerful devices built specifically for mining certain cryptocurrencies, giving their owners a significant advantage over miners using standard computer hardware (CPUs or GPUs).
