comment How well does scrypt perform on different architectures / OSes?
That is basically an argument about what works "best", not the general principle. However, to return to scrypt specifically, even in relatively meek cases seen in alt-coins so far it's already pretty mean to FPGAs and likely to ASICs (though I'd suggest a beefier version that was discussed on the forum just in order to quench paranoia of the "government will deploy ASICs" sort). Of course we can hypothesize a cost-efficient and powerful scrypt supersolver unlike nothing seen before. We can hypothesize same for plain BTC PoW too. If anything, I'd say it has better attacker$/legitimate$ rate
