The Materia1 chips will be an order of magnitude more efficient than GPUs and will provide an edge over other ASIC miners on the network.
We're making it easy to setup your unit. The Materia1 and the Materia1-TURBO will both have easily configurable UI so you can be online and mining in just a few clicks.
We have designed the unit to be affordable for everyone, so that it's widely accessible and significantly cheaper than a staking ticket.
We are going directly to a 16nm process, providing network security to the Decred network and delivering increased efficiency over competitors at higher process nodes (28nm).
You're in control of your hardware. No remote shutdown, no pool hardcoding, no hardware dev fee.
Engineered for datacenter or hobbyist use, the Materia1 has lenient temperature parameters and is a drop-in replacement for Antminer S9s.
The Materia1-TURBO is optimized for datacenter operations; Bigger units, less management required.
We started mining Bitcoin in 2011, and started CPU mining Monero in 2013. By 2015 we were the largest Monero miners on the network, and in 2016 we added a Zcash GPU farm to our portfolio. But we were always developers, not facilities managers, so now we're bringing our mining experience together with our engineering skills to build a custom ASIC miner for Decred.
