Avalon A15 - the new generation of Bitcoin ASICs from Canaan

asic avalon a15 a1566On May 9th, at the Bitcoin Asia 2024 exhibition in Hong Kong, Canaan unveiled the new generation of its SHA-256 algorithm ASIC miners, named Avalon A15. The first model of the 15 series will be the Avalon A1566, which, in addition to an increased hash rate of 185Th/s, also offers improved energy efficiency at 18.5J/TH. For the previous model A1466, to remind you, the hash rate was 150Th/s with an energy efficiency of 21.5Th/s. Comparing the two generations of Canaan ASICs directly, the manufacturer managed to increase the main parameter of energy efficiency by 14%.

What is restaking? EigenLayer, EtherFi

eigenlayer restaking ethereum

On September 15, 2022, the cryptocurrency Ethereum fully transitioned from Proof of Work (POW) mining (using ASICs and graphics cards) to Proof of Stake (POS) mining, where validators are required to hold 32 ETH on a server and receive rewards for it. Such a server is called a validator. Depositing one's cryptocurrency into POS mining is called staking. The profitability of Ethereum mining in 2024 is approximately 3% annually, which is relatively low by cryptocurrency standards. Everything changed in June 2023 with the introduction of the EigenLayer protocol (smart contract), which allows Ethereum validators to earn additional income almost risk-free through a mechanism called restaking (reStake). Currently, over 70% of validators use restaking services, indicating the high popularity of this approach. Next, we will attempt to explain in simple terms how the asset restaking mechanism works and why it is needed, using EigenLayer as an example.

Bombax Miner EZ100 - ASIC for Ethash algorithm

asic bombax miner ez100 etchash

A new company, BomBax Miner, has appeared on the Internet, offering its product for miners in the form of ASIC EZ100, focused on the ETHash (ETChash) mining algorithm. The hashrate of the new product is promised to be 12500MH/s with a power consumption of 2300W, which corresponds to an energy efficiency of 0.18W/MH. In addition to the standard version, a home version with reduced performance but with reduced noise is also offered. This model is called EZ100-C, with a hashrate of 3200Mh/s and 570W. And what is noteworthy is that the energy efficiency of the EZ100-C is the same as that of its older brother 0.18W/MH.

1 million validators on the Ethereum network

eth 1 million validatorToday, April 29, 2024, the number of validators on the Ethereum cryptocurrency network has exceeded 1 million, indicating not only the significant popularity of the Ethereum blockchain but also its high reliability. With 1 million validators, there are 32 million ETH coins or over 100 billion dollars participating in POS mining. At the start of phase 0 POS mining in November 2020, Ethereum struggled to reach the necessary minimum of 16,384 validators. Achieving the milestone of one million included ETH nodes today is undoubtedly a success and recognition of Ethereum as the leading blockchain in the world of cryptocurrencies and the number one among cryptocurrencies supporting POS mining. Bitcoin remains in the first place by a large margin with its traditional POW blockchain.

MSN - New Jumpstart (LaunchPad) From OKX Exchange

The top crypto exchange OKX announced its next project within the framework of JumpStart (the local analogue of Launchpad from Binance). This time, an MSN (Meson Network) token will be distributed for participation - DePin is a project to create a marketplace with optimized bandwidth. The launch is scheduled for 04/26/2024 6:00 (UTC) or 13 hours after publication of this material. As usual, thanks to the low maximum possible staking amount (3.5 ETH and 0.3 BTC), it is possible to receive the highest possible income (usually from 1 to 6% of the staking amount in just 2 days and without any risks).

Blum is a simple cryptocurrency trading app and hybrid CEX/DEX exchange. The project has big plans: to unite more than 30 networks with their tokens in one application. But the most interesting thing is that the Blum project has launched an analogue of Play to Earn (play to earn) of the sensational Telegram game Notcoin, the listing of tokens of which is awaited by more than 35 million players. At the moment, entry and play are limited and each player can invite no more than 5 friends. In the future, the project plans to airdrop based on the results and achievements in this “poke game”. If you are interested in this project, you can find invitation links at the end of this material. Keep in mind that only 5 invitation links are available per account, so hurry to join only if you really want to participate in this project. We will try to update and add new invitations as much as possible.
