Innosilicon A2 Terminator Scrypt ASICs Are The First 28nm Chips For Litecoin And Dogecoin Mining

Innosilicon A2 Terminator Scrypt ASIC. On 4/20/14, Innosilicon announced sales of their A2 Terminator Scrypt ASIC on Bitcointalk and their website. Innosilicon is not a newcomer to the ASIC mining realm, by any means. They have previously completed the design and fabrication, through Global Foundries, of an A1 CoinCraft SHA-256 ASIC chip that was used in many cheap, ready-to-ship miners out of China in recent months. From their A1 chips revenue, Innosilicon was able to manufacture these A2 Terminator Scrypt ASIC chips without crowdfunding through preorders, as many competitors have.....

A New Benchmark for Scrypt Mining

The technology of Scrypt mining ASICs has exploded in the past year and many believe that 2014 will be the year for mining scrypt based currencies like Litecoin, Dogecoin and Auroracoin. For a company like Bliss Devices, these advancements are providing individuals with innovative chips, faster hashing and lower cost of ownership. In fact, Bliss Devices has just announced what may be the highest performing Scrypt ASIC chip to date. Bliss Devices was founded by Paul Chen and Steve Zhang, who were integral in the creation of 8 highly-complex ASICs at Fortinet, a global provider of network....

Radeon GPUs in Demand as Litecoin Mining Difficulty Increases

Bitcoin mining on a standard GPU is a thing of the past. Put simply: it's no longer economically viable, given the power consumption of discrete graphics cards and their relatively high price. ASICs are a no-brainer when it comes to bitcoin, however litecoin is a different story. Unlike its counterpart, litecoin can still be mined using off-the-shelf hardware, namely via AMD Radeon graphics cards. There aren't that many alternatives, either. There are still no ASIC products for scrypt, litecoin's algorithm, and this will not change for the next few months at least. It is rumoured that....

Mining ASICs Technologies B. V. (MAT) Joins Scrypt ASIC Race Towards The Bottom

Scrypt ASIC Race Towards The Bottom. KnCMiner has promised 250 MH/s for 1000W. This morning, Mining ASICs Technologies (MAT) posted a press release to their website. In it, they announced that their Excalibur 1 (100 MH/s) and their Excalibur 2 (200 MH/s) would be upgraded to Excalibur 3 (125 MH/s) and Excalibur 4 (250 MH/s), respectively. This free upgrade comes on the heels of an eventful week in the competitive world of Scrypt ASIC Mining hardware manufacturing and design. Originally slated for September release, MAT is now confident that their Scrypt ASICs might even start shipping in....

Litecoin and ASICS: Effect on Market

We all know that Scrypt ASICS are now available for purchase, and miners have been hashing away at Scrypt coins, leaving GPU miners to scramble to under algorithms, most popular being Scrypt-n and x-11. Scrypt ASICS may have also had a negative effect on prices, for Darkcoin and Vertcoin. Darkcoin is the most popular X11 coin, and Vertcoin is the most popular Scrypt-n coin, so it’s logical to assume that is where most GPU miners flocked to. For example, take a look at what happened to Darkcoin. At a current market weighted average of 0.0098 BTC, this is the lowest it has been in 2 months,....
