March 19, 2019 |

Bitmain Releases Equihash Miner Three Times More Powerful Than Its Predecessor

Bitmain, the Beijing-headquartered cryptocurrency mining giant, has officially released the Antminer Z11 machine on Tuesday March 19. The new device is designed to mine coins that are based on the Equihash proof-of-work algorithm such as the privacy-focused altcoin zcash (ZEC).

Bitmain Releases the Antminer Z11

Crypto winter might be taking its toll on many cryptocurrency miners, and thus the companies that supply them with equipment, but the technological arms race to develop the fastest rigs never stops. This is exemplified by Bitmain’s release of an Equihash miner that is three times more powerful than its predecessor. The new mining machine is currently on pre-sale on the company’s website and Bitmain promises that it will start shipping shortly.

According to the company’s specifications, the Antminer Z11 offers a hashing power of 135 KSol/s, which is three times greater than the Z9, Bitmain’s previous Equihash miner. The Z11 also has a power efficiency of 10.50 J/KSol, saving 60 percent of electricity costs compared to the Z9. Additionally, at just 5.4 kg (about 11.9 lbs), it also weighs slightly less than the Z9.

Showing Commitment to Transparency and the Zcash Community

The company noted in the announcement for the new machine how it is showing commitment to the Zcash community as well as to transparency, an issue that is critical for miners who in the past had to wait a long time for the equipment they purchased to reach them. Bitmain explained: “To preserve the Zcash community’s values around security, reliability and accessibility, Bitmain had previously Tweeted real-time updates to ensure more transparency and will continue to provide shipping updates of the first batch of the Antminer Z11. These commitments to transparency will continue to provide the Zcash foundation and community with the security, reliability and accessibility they desire of manufacturers.”

Bitmain Releases Equihash Miner 3x More Powerful Than Its Predecessor

Besides Zcash and Equihash, Bitmain of course continues to develop crypto mining hardware for other proof-of-work algorithms. On Feb. 18, the manufacturing giant announced its next-generation 7nm ASIC chip for mining SHA-256 coins such as bitcoin core (BTC) and bitcoin cash (BCH).

Twitter CEO Talks Bitcoin on Joe Rogan Experience

Jack Dorsey, CEO of Twitter and mobile payments platform Square, recently went on the wildly popular Joe Rogan Experience podcast to talk about his various ventures. Among the topics that came up was cryptocurrency, a recurring theme on the show. Dorsey explained he believes that the internet will have a native currency and he thinks it will be bitcoin because of the principles behind it and its origin. “It was something that was born on the internet, was developed on the internet, was tested on the internet, it is of the internet,” he said.

The Square CEO touched on the issue of functionality for payments vs store of wealth. “We would love to see something become a global currency. It enables more access. It allows us to serve more people. It allows us to move much faster around the world,” he explained. “We thought we were going to start with how you can use it transactionally, but we noticed that people were treating it more like an asset, like a virtual gold, and we wanted to just make that easy, just the simplest way to buy and sell bitcoin.”

Dorsey also mentioned that the current banking and political systems are threatened by the invention as no one has no centralized control over Bitcoin. “It’s certainly threatening to certain services behind banks and financial institutions. It’s threatening to some governments as well.”

Bitstamp Exchange Releases New Mobile App

Cryptocurrency exchange Bitstamp launched a new mobile app for iOS and Android on Thursday, Jan 31. The app allows users to buy and sell cryptocurrencies, make transfers, check balances and transaction history, and explore the markets through real-time charts. Additional features include a simple interface for beginners and another one for experienced traders, the ability to issue instant, market, limit and stop orders, as well as an option to remotely disable the app in case a user’s phone is lost or stolen.

“Built from the ground up to combine all the tools that make Bitstamp attractive for advanced traders in an intuitive interface, simple enough that anyone can begin trading in seconds,” the exchange team stated. “We suggest all users switch to the new app immediately for improved performance, reliability and more features.” The old Bitstamp app will be disabled after a one-month crossover period.

Besides launching the new mobile version of the platform, the Bitstamp team also announced they are preparing a number of upgrades for the desktop platform in an effort to improve users’ trading experience.

Nvidia Reportedly Made Billions From Miners

Could the impact of crypto winter have been harder on Nvidia Corporation (NASDAQ: NVDA) than its management has confessed? This is what a recent report claims. RBC analyst Mitch Steves estimates that the company controls three quarters of the GPU mining market and calculated it made a fortune from miners during the boom time, a revenue stream that is now lost.

“We think NVDA generated $ 1.95 billion in total revenue related to crypto/blockchain,” noted Steves according to Markets Insider. “This compares to company’s statement that it generated around $ 602 million over the same time period.”

The Daily: Twitter CEO Talks Bitcoin, Bitstamp Releases New Mobile App

Last week the company updated investors that its previous fourth-quarter guidance had embedded a “sequential decline due to excess mid-range channel inventory following the cryptocurrency boom.” The company claimed that the reduction in that inventory and its impact on the business have “proceeded largely inline with management’s expectations,” and that it was deteriorating macroeconomic conditions, particularly in China, that weakened consumer demand for gaming GPUs.

The Daily: Bitmain Reflects on 2018, Memo Releases Mobile App

In today’s edition of The Daily, we cover a reflection on the passing year by the cryptocurrency mining technology giant Bitmain, a mobile app released by social network Memo and new turnover figures from a Bitcoin ATM network in Australia.

Bitmain Reflects on 2018

Bitmain, the Beijing-headquartered bitcoin mining technology giant, has been the topic of many discussions recently relating to its IPO application process, downsizing and more. A lengthy new blog post the company published today touches on these subjects and highlights some of the milestones the company has achieved in 2018. These achievements include the development of a 7nm ASIC chip for SHA-256 mining, launching hardware for powering artificial intelligence applications, investing in Circle and funding open-source projects.

The Bitmain team explains that the consolidating actions they took recently were done to make the company leaner, more focused and to streamline the business in preparation for the challenges of the future. “Our wide portfolio and varied lines of work have expanded to a point where we have the problem of choice and this year was the time to choose. We started to optimize the business and streamline our flows to focus back on the core missions and activities that best rally behind our vision. We as a company will be lean and more focused towards our goals and we look forward to a 2019 where we can see what our collective efforts can achieve in this manner.”

The company also made this comment about the contentious BSV fork: “It goes without saying that the BCH and BSV split was a significant topic within the global cryptocurrency space last year. It was exciting to see different passions clash for the future and betterment of cryptocurrencies without the purported ‘hash war’ being fought. Having ourselves been through a similar (but much longer!) conflict over the future of Bitcoin just about 18 months back, we understand the BSV community’s decision to split and freely pursue its own dream. Adoption will come through power, flexibility and sophistication of the ecosystem and we look forward to what 2019 has in store for cryptocurrencies.”

Memo Releases Mobile App

BCH-based social media network Memo.cash has released a mobile app on Sunday. The first app is designed for Android devices but the developers promise that an iOS version is coming soon too. Reactions to the announcement on the platform itself are positive and so are the few reviews already on the Google Play store.

The Daily: Bitmain Reflects on 2018, Memo Releases Mobile App

If you are not yet familiar with it, Memo.cash is a decentralized app powered by Bitcoin Cash blockchain technology. It gives users the ability to create a profile and post messages, images and videos using hashtags as well as to give tips instead of just likes. With Twitter being infected with scammers and bots, supporters hope that the growing platform will be able to provide an alternative and releasing a mobile app is a step forward in the long road that it will take.

Australian ATM Network Sees ‘Insane’ Turnover

According to a newspaper report from down under, a local Bitcoin ATM network with only about 30 machines is now handling volumes of $ 2 million a month. This is despite the fact that the company failed to raise a targeted $ 30 million in an initial coin offering (ICO) due to the market cool-down.

The Daily: Bitmain Reflects on 2018, Memo Releases Mobile App

“We raised just shy of $ 2 million, so just over 5 per cent of our initial goal – the rollout didn’t work out as we hoped,” Sam Karagiozis, the founder of Auscoin, told Daily Mail Australia. “But we currently have 31 Auscoin ATMs in Australia… and our turnover is $ 500,000 a week, which is just insane considering how much the price of Bitcoin has dropped. It just shows there really is a market for it and cryptocurrency is seen as a way of the future for many.”
