A Couple of weeks after RC5-64 started, the estimated completion time was
over 1000 years.   Pretty much in line with this project.

If my calculations are correct, at our current rate of 0.000081%, it
will take us 33 years for the first 1% of the keyspace. How does that
compare to when rc5-64 first started?

In my own opinion, there isn't a snow balls chance in hell that we will
ever have 30,000 daily active participants so this challenge is
completly unreasonable.

PlEASE PLEASE get us to work on something that will take 5 years tops,
not 1 or 2 thousand.
