πŸ‘‹Hey! will keep you up-to-date βœ‰οΈSubscribe for new algorithms, πŸ’» hardware, 🌐 software, and stay informed!

Like a lot of my fellow miners out there, I came from a GPU mining world. As a GPU miner myself, I was both curious and concerned about the growing FPGA mining ecosystem. After weeks of research and testing, we compiled the first version of the to share what we've learned so far.

This is now the fourth revision of In the past year, we've grown to nearly 1500 subscribers and had the pleasure of working with many great companies and developers like:

  • 🚍 Cafe3d @ TUL
  • πŸ”₯ whitefire990 @ Zetheron Technologies
  • 🏎️ Ruplikmastik666
  • ◼️ HashAltCoin
  • 🐿️ GPUHoarder @ SQRL Research
  • ⏭️ NextDesignSolutions

We've learned a lot from the community, and continue to see this space grow in both impact and value.

🍻 A toast to the exciting future! From The Team ✌️

Why should I care about FPGAs?

Even in today's bear market, FPGAs generate up to $11 USD a day(per March 27th, 2019). Below are confirmed numbers for the BCU 1525 FPGA board and F1 Blackminer FPGA board.
