The Obelisk GRN1: An ASIC for Grin

  • A voucher sale where we will be selling $3,000 vouchers, each convertible into 1 Cuckatoo31 mining unit. This sale will be open from January 17th to February 1st, and a total of 10,000 vouchers are available.
  • The full machine sale is expected to go live in March, with units being sold for $6,000 each. Any voucher holder will be able to exchange their voucher to a full unit at no additional cost.
  • If for some reason a unit no longer seems like an attractive deal, a voucher holder can elect to receive a refund of $2,000 instead of a Cuckatoo31 miner.
  • That said, we are tentatively expecting each unit to be able perform at least 100 graphs per second while consuming no more than 800 watts. This can be compared to the current leading graphics card, the NVIDIA RTX 2080 Ti, which performs less than 2 graphs per second and consumes approximately 250 watts.

New ASIC/GPU Software To Increase Hash Rate

  • If configured correctly, Bloq Labs claims, Titan can increase a mining pool’s hash power “by double digits.” “Titan gets the most out of your machines,”
  • Titan can be tethered to an entire mining farm, improve watt extraction, and provide further optimizations like enhancing overclocking through a proficient system of machine learning.
  • Titan’s software will be able to mine multiple cryptocurrencies with different consensus algorithms.
  • The protocol will maximize the devices’ shelf life and shave operation costs by keeping machines up to speed
  • The Titan project is also led by the creator of the cryptocurrency mining profitability website Coinwarz Kyle Howlett. The project’s CTO has been creating mining tools for better ROI since 2012 and he believes the new software takes things to the next level.
  • Titan has opened its beta waitlist to the public

New Miner Updates

I Smell Blood In The Mine

Nvidia Decreases Q4 Revenue Estimates Citing Crypto Mining Decline

  • The company is reflecting weaker forecasted sales in its gaming and data center platforms, which comes from excess mid-range channel inventory following the slump in cryptocurrency markets.
  • Q4 revenue is expected to be at $ 2.20 billion, opposed to the previous projection of $2.70 billion according to a statement released by Nvidia on Jan 28.
  • The cryptocurrency mining frenzy drove up demand for Nvidia’s graphics processing units (GPUs). However, once the demand began to disappear due to decreased crypto valuations, GPU prices did not decrease enough to attract new consumers to purchase more affordable cards. This led to what Nvidia founder and CEO Jensen Huang has called a “crypto hangover.”
  • The company had experienced a massive sell-off of stocks at the end of 2018, which sank the company’s stock price by 54 percent, News of decreased revenues for the quarter has dropped Nvidia’s stock price by 15 percent, which is now trading around $135, down from $158.08 at opening today

AMD Q4 Financial Report Sees Income Dip, Executives Show No Signs Of Panic

  • AMD, which like other graphics hardware manufacturers has suffered due to the cryptocurrency bear market, produced quarter-on-quarter revenue losses of 14 percent.
  • Its gross margin was down 2 percent versus Q3, while its net income fell from $122 million to just $38 million
  • In December 2018, Cointelegraph reported on how AMD’s radeon RX580 device had lost almost 70 percent of its sale price through the course of last year.
  • AMD’s stock price managed to escape the fate of competitor Nvidia last year, the latter seeing a huge sell-off of its stock in Q4 amid rising market pressure. Nvidia recently decreased its Q4 revenue estimates last week, citing a decline in crypto mining as well as worsening conditions in China.

Bitfury to Launch Bitcoin Mining Centers in Paraguay

  • Blockchain tech firm and Bitcoin (BTC) mining manufacturer Bitfury plans to launch several mining facilities in Paraguay
  • the mining facilities in Paraguay will account for about 200,000 square meters, with electricity provided by a 500MW power substation. Bitfury claims that all the energy used by the mining centers will be renewable, as Paraguay is reportedly home to the world’s largest operational hydroelectric energy producer, power plant Itaipu.
  • In addition, Commons Foundation has unveiled its plans to open a global cryptocurrency exchangein Paraguay later this year and to issue a Golden Goose token (GOLD) for the participants in the two projects.

Mother Russia Going Into The Mine?

  • Using its excess energy generating capacity to mine cryptocurrencies, Russia can increase its budget receipts by more than $1 billion dollars in annual tax revenue.
  • Russia’s electrical surplus last year reached 20 GW. According to the study conducted by industrial mining solutions provider Bitcluster, that’s enough energy to power 14.8 million of the popular Antminer S9i ASIC devices.
  • If Russia uses the excess electricity to mine they could receive 70 billion rubles (over $1 billion) With electricity in Russia priced at 2 rubles ($0.03) per kilowatt-hour
  • According to Bitcluster’s founder Sergei Arestov, the crypto valley could be situated around one of Russia’s numerous hydroelectric power plants. Mining facilities and the infrastructure needed to set up blockchain business parks can be built around the power station and take advantage of cheap and abundant energy supply.

Ethereum Devs Delay ASIC-Resistant PoW Algorithm Decision Until Third-Party Audit

  • Ethereum (ETH) core developers have delayed the decision to implement Application-Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC)-resistant proof-of-work (PoW) algorithm ProgPoW, According to an Ethereum core developer meeting on Feb. 1, the team wants to wait until the algorithm is audited by a third party.
  • Ethereum core developer Hudson Jameson declared during the call that “there is a group forming or multiple groups forming to perform an independent audit on ProgPoW.” He explained that the audit is an attempt to establish how effective the algorithm would be in leveling the playing field for different kinds of hardware used to mine crypto, including GPUs, Field-Programmable Gate Arrays and ASICs.
  • Jameson also noted that data derived from such an audit should give devs enough confidence to make a decision.
  • After another core developer, Martin Holst Swende, declared that they have been trying to decide about ProgPoW implementation for several months and that he wonders how it is going to be resolved, dev Greg Colvin responded in a seemingly frustrated and moderately angry tone: “It’s resolved by us making a f*****g decision.”
  • till, the overall consensus has fallen on waiting for the audit to be completed to decide on ProgPoW implementation. In the end, Colvin declared: “I would happily decide today, but I’m not the expert. I’m happy to wait for the audit, but I’m not happy to make this decision in May or something. An awful lot of people would like to know so they can get on with their business

They are Going To Fork Because of it!

  • Intended fork height of 1788000 (approximately March 9)
  • New release (0.14) will essentially be the 0.13.0.4 release (i.e. the release-v0.13 branch) + the consensus changes
  • Subsequent point release will include new features, bug fixes, and performance improvements that are currently present in master
  • PoW tweak will be CryptoNightR + a random change
  • Users ought to upgrade to the upcoming 0.14 release (CLI & GUI)
  • Pool operators ought to upgrade to the upcoming 0.14 release
  • Miners ought to upgrade their mining software to a version that supports the new PoW algorithm
  • Mobile wallet users (e.g. Cake Wallet, Monerujo, X wallet, MyMonero, Edge) ought to upgrade to a version that supports the consensus changes
  • Presumably MyMonero will also release a new version of their desktop apps that supports the consensus changes
  • You do not have to move / transfer your coins in advance of the scheduled protocol upgrade to be sufficiently prepared
  • As far as I can see (currently), this will be a consensual upgrade and thus no additional coin will be created

Radeon RX 580 with 2048 cores WTF MSI

  • Rather than call it RX 570, the RX 580 name is used.
  • This product is not available in all regions. It could go against some regulations, such as misleading product naming.
  • That said, the RX 580 2048 SP ARMOR from MSI will likely only be available in Asia.
  • There are two variants, the 8GB and 4GB models. The cards are (surprise, surprise) identical to MSI Radeon RX 570 ARMOR. Basically, it is the same card with a new box.

The 1660 Ti LineUp

  • MSI GeForce GTX 1660 Ti GAMING Z
    • highest clock speed of all MSI 1660 Ti models.
  • MSI GeForce GTX 1660 Ti ARMOR
  • GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1660 Ti OC
