German start-up wants to build chip that energy Bitcoin mining halves




A German start-up plans to build which the minen of bitcoins to be cheaper. Chip The conscious chip is set at a lower voltage than usual and so must be the energy consumption, as compared with conventional chips in half.

That reports The Wall Street Journal, based on information from Asicrising, a German start-up that claims to have been found to perform. Bitcoin mining with lower energy method The chip Asicrising called Wolf Blood Extreme Efficiency consumes the initiators only 0.19 per giga joule hash, while conventional chips consume about 0.37 joules per giga hash. The Wolf Blood is, as the name of the start-up suggests, an ASIC chip specifically designed to calculate. Bitcoins

According Asicrising-CEO Sebastian Krause, the lower energy achieved by rotating than usual. Wolf Blood-chip at a lower voltage Although ASIC chips are unreliable in lowering the voltage, enables the company to have you here. Found a solution Using software at the lowest possible voltage limit in which the individual chips can turn to perform.’s Bitcoin mining process

By lowering the energy costs can be financially attractive to mine. Bitcoins As more Bitcoins be found, the mining process more difficult. Therefore, the profits for Bitcoin mining diminished in recent times and is sometimes even turned a loss. It is not yet clear when the Wolf Blood-chip can come on the market: Asicrising proposes to need, where it hopes to raise an amount between 10 and 15 million dollars in funding. Asicrising working with GlobalFoundries to produce the chip.
