Reclaim your Network


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.

Easy Setup

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.

Datacenter Friendly

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

We've decided to go directly to sales once our ASICs are ready to be shipped rather than run a presale. We don't have a date planned for open sales yet. Please see our announcement for more information.
Once the units are open for sale, they will ship a few weeks after purchase.
Simply put, we want to deliver the best hardware on the network to you. We had competition at the 28nm level. While our chip outperformed theirs, we weren't happy with minor improvements, so we moved to 16nm.

You can read more about the decision here:
Chip Upgrade // 16nm
We have successfully implemented a miner on an FPGA and are working with a fabless semiconductor company to move forward. Our team has successfully built ASICs in the past for other applications and has a deep understanding of the risks, validation techniques, and system integration.
