SFARDS Announced 28nm Bitcoin and Litecoin Dual-Algorithm

The SF3301 will be the next generation of dual-algorithm mining chips; the world’s first 28nm with the capability to mine SHA-256 and Scrypt simultaneously.

Tape out of the company’s 28nm SF3301 ASIC is currently underway. By using FDSOI technology not currently present in any other chip on the market , power efficiency when mining with SHA-256 is predicted to reach below the 0.3 J/GH range, and 2.0 J/MH when mining with Scrypt.

The SF3301 is extremely versatile, allowing users to mine multiple currencies with one device. This means price fluctuations can be harnessed and miners being forced to turn off their miner is far less likely. A new situation can arise where altcoins are utilized to cover electricity costs while Bitcoin is continuously and simultaneously being mined.

This ability is something never seen before with 28nm technology; with the 28nm SF3301 unprecedented dual Scrypt and SHA-256 ASIC Bitcoin and Litecoin miners due to launch by April 2015.


Sfards is a Chinese crypto currency mining company, created from the merger between established cryptocurrency mining company Gridseed and WiiBox. The company is funded by angel investor Li Xiao Lai. In addition to this, Sfards has financial backing from the tier-one international VC firm Matrix Partners. Sfards’ primary focus and experience lies in ASIC Research, Miner Development, Data Center Management, and Cloud Services.

The Pros and Cons of the X11 Algorithm

Firstly, let me start out by saying that we fully support the X11 Algorithm and that we do believe it is the future for many coins out there. Especially considering that Scrypt ASICs have already been spotted in the wild, and that there are new ASICs of an expected 250 MH/s! The X11 Algorithm has its flaws though (cons), but do they outweigh all of the pros? Without further ado, let's take a look at the pros and cons of the X11 Algorithm. Litecoin's supposed X11 Logo. Pros. First Pro of the X11 Algorithm? Security: The algorithm uses eleven hashing functions from the Blake algorithm to the....

Creator of Litecoin on "Will Litecoin Overtake Bitcoin?"

Litecoin is the second most popular cryptocurrency after Bitcoin. Litecoin's advantages over Bitcoin include its faster block confirmation times and scrypt hashing algorithm (to prevent ASIC mining). But will Litecoin ever see the massive success Bitcoin has seen and maybe even surpass it? Here's what Litecoin creator Charles Lee has to say on the matter.
