This innovative POW is optimized for CPUs and it's based on execution of random code and other memory-heavy techniques. The goal is to discourage the use of specialized hardware (like ASICs) for @mining Monero. RandomX was created with the intent of keeping mining decentralized and to create a more egalitarian distribution of the @block rewards.
RandomX specifications and development can be found [on the GitHub repository](https://github.com/tevador/RandomX), while [an article dedicated to RandomX](https://www.monerooutreach.org/stories/RandomX.html) made by the Outreach workgroup contains more information about the history of RandomX and its relation with Monero.
["randomx", "random-x"]
RandomX is a Proof Of Work algorithm developed by Monero contributors and adopted by Monero from release 0.15.
