Suggestion: Mine half blocks via Masternodes

Since Masternodes already play an important part of the Dash ecosystem, Dash is already defacto PoW/PoW hybrid algorithm, I'd recommend that every 2nd block be mined by Masternodes.

Odd blocks by PoW miners; Even blocks to be mined by Masternodes (via PoS).
This lead to better security (because algo gets more variance), and less electricity waste by PoW miners.

Masternodes income will be: 45%+22.5%.
Miner income will drop in half: 22.5%.
Dash budget stays at 10%.

What do you think of it ?

i do not agree
- masternodes are well paid and do not need more
- miners need the financial support of 45% as it is touch as nails to mine these days
+
everything is running fine
why change anything

>why change anything?

1. To diversify mining algorithm(s)
2. To reduce energy consumption

>What will miners be doing while its MNs turn to mine?

They will save electricity. (computers can micro-sleep for 2.5 minutes, between blocks, reducing power consumption by 10x factor)

will cut their income by 50%
the asic cost will not fall and their monsters will be humming and burning electricity anyway
