Subject: Re: [PHC] Memory-hard proof of work with fast verification (CPU Hash)

Forgive me if this is a naive question, but if you wanted a
Proof-of-RAM for a cryptocurrency to be ASIC-resistant and (maybe)
GPU-resistant (and I do want that!), then what's wrong with Argon2d
with memory size = 1 GiB?

In other words, what's the point of the proposed ROM-hardness feature?
