Discussion about Primecoin and its infra. Primecoin is a very innovative cryptocurrency, being the 1st non Hash-Cash PoW crypto, naturally scarce (not artificially), with very fast confirmations (1min), elastic readjusting reward & a useful mining (byproducts are primes). Primecoin is sustainable (miners are guaranteed to have revenues), and decentralized (ASIC/FPGA are not particularly advantaged). Sidechain for decentralized data applications (e.g. Storj) currently in development.

Open-Source FPGA Bitcoin Miner and ASIC conversion...
Hey Everyone, So there has been a lot of talk about FPGA and ASIC miners recently, and I've been doing some of my own research. FPGA's are fully programmable, and mainly used in R&D where ASIC's cannot be programmed - but are cheap and have the potential to out preform FPGA's. Here's where it gets interesting. There are multiple companies that do FPGA-to-ASIC migrations for this exact purpose. The "R&D lab" has a stable setup with their FPGA and want to get it into production. It would make little sense to use expensive and slower FPGA's, especially when the code (HDL) has been finalized. This is where these migration companies come in... Now this is what I'm thinking, we already have the Open-Source FPGA Bitcoin Miner HDL - so what's stopping us with going into full production mode and getting our OWN ASIC's??? I've come across multiple companies that do this (it seems pretty common practice) such as this one that even offers pin compatibility which would make our lives even easier: http://www.gigoptix.com/component/k2/item/325-pin-pin.html Any input is welcomed! I haven't messed around with FGPA's in 13 years so I'm probably off on a few things. Feel free to fill in the holes! -UltraSPARC
Jeg er journalist på Radio24syv og søger en eller flere personer, som miner Bitcoins og kunne have tid og lyst til at tage deres setup med i studiet og forklare, hvordan det virker. Hvis nogen kunne vil høre mere om indslaget eller kunne have tid og lyst til at medvirke, må I meget gerne vende tilbage på [email protected]. Vh

Bitcoin mining evolves from GPU to FPGA and now custom ASIC
Bitcoin mining used to be rows of consumer gpu's brute-forcing the sha-256 encryption (max 2000 Mhash/s). After that people and companies started using expensive fpga setups to do it faster (100-25000 Mhash/s). Now companies have developed custom ASIC for bitcoin mining. (Avalon , Bitforce , Deepbit). It has an impressive speed of 4.5K -> 1500K Mhash/s . This increase of computing ability will probably put the gpu mining out of business and shake up the market abit.

Building an ASIC miner with FPGA chips or manufactured IC's available on the market
Hi again. I recently made a post on using Arduino to replace bitcoin miners and i realized how crazily stupid that decision would be seeming as a typical Arduino has a hash rate of around 50 Now I needed a new way to build an ASIC miner seeing as Arduinos are out of the question. The two possible methods I came up with/discovered was by using multiple FPGA chips to do the exact calculations needed. The other is by using pre-manufactured IC's from older GPU's, buying them in bulk and building many GPU's that are built around those IC's I have three questions:
What do you guys think about using FPGA's or manufactured IC's to make the bitcoin miner?
Are there any articles you know of where people have attempted a similar project
So I first heard about FPGAs from Linus Tech Tips. I've been doing some research and I still don't fully understand how these things work. The way I figure it right now is you program whatever instruction set you want into it and then it runs code for that instruction set. Is this correct? I've seen posts about people using them for gaming and even bitcoin mining. Makes sense for mining, I guess kinda like a virtual ASIC. How does it work with gaming though? Virtual GPU? Virtual CPU cores perhaps? My main interest in them is simulations development. I got simulations that take a long time to compute. Can I just take one of these, stick it in a PCIe slot, create a custom instruction set for my purposes, and then run bytecode on it? If so, how much faster should I expect it to run compared to running equivalent C++ code on a plain ol' CPU? Assuming an average-quality instruction set considering I'd clearly be a noob at this. Thanks for reading!

Today there are countless tokens offering various levels of staking rewards. Decred voting, XTZ staking, ZEN nodes, and many more. New generation of DeFi tokens have cropped up and offer yield farming rewards in return for pooled liquidity on Uniswap, Balancer and others. Some even offer 10,000% APY returns (in their native unlimited supply token). Unfortunately, with only few exceptions most of these tokens don’t have any source of revenue to fund these rewards and to justify their price. Furthermore, these rewards dilute the supply and ultimately drive the price down. AGA Token changes this by using Cryptocurrency mining to fund its staking rewards and to back its price.

A field-programmable gate array (FPGA) is a chip that can be programmed to suit whatever purpose you want, as often as you want it and wherever you need it. FPGAs provide multiple advantages, including low latency, high throughput and energy efficiency. To fully understand what FPGAs offer, imagine a performance spectrum. At one end, you have the central processing unit (CPU), which offers a generic set of instructions that can be combined to carry out an array of different tasks. This makes a CPU extremely flexible, and its behaviour can be defined through software. However, CPUs are also slow because they have to select from the available generic instructions to complete each task. In a sense, they’re a “jack of all trades, but a master of none”. At the other end of the spectrum sit application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs). These are potentially much faster because they have been built with a single task in mind, making them a “master of one trade”. This is the kind of chip people use to mine bitcoin, for example. The downside of ASICs is that they can’t be changed, and they cost time and money to develop. FPGAs offer a perfect middle ground: they can be significantly faster than a CPU and are more flexible than ASICs. FPGAs contain thousands, sometimes even millions, of so-called core logic blocks (CLBs). These blocks can be configured and combined to process any task that can be solved by a CPU. Compared with a CPU, FPGAs aren’t burdened by surplus hardware that would otherwise slow you down. They can therefore be used to carry out specific tasks quickly and effectively, and can even process several tasks simultaneously. These characteristics make them popular across a wide range of sectors, from aerospace to medical engineering and security systems, and of course finance. How are FPGAs used in the financial services sector? Speed and versatility are particularly important when buying or selling stocks and other securities. In the era of electronic trading, decisions are made in the blink of an eye. As prices change and orders come and go, companies are fed new information from exchanges and other sources via high-speed networks. This information arrives at high speeds, with time measured in nanoseconds. The sheer volume and speed of data demands a high bandwidth to process it all. Specialized trading algorithms make use of the new information in order to make trades. FPGAs provide the perfect platform to develop these applications, as they allow you to bypass non-essential software as well as generic-purpose hardware. How do market makers use FPGAs to provide liquidity? As a market maker, IMC provides liquidity to buyers and sellers of financial instruments. This requires us to price every instrument we trade and to react to the market accordingly. Valuation is a view on what the price of an asset should be, which is handled by our traders and our automated pricing algorithms. When a counterpart wants to buy or sell an asset on a trading venue, our role is to always be there and offer, or bid, a fair price for the asset. FPGAs enable us to perform this key function in the most efficient way possible. At IMC, we keep a close eye on emerging technologies that can potentially improve our business. We began working with FPGAs more than a decade ago and are constantly exploring ways to develop this evolving technology. We work in a competitive industry, so our engineers have to be on their toes to make sure we’re continuously improving. What does an FPGA engineer do? Being an FPGA engineer is all about learning and identifying new solutions to challenges as they arise. A software developer can write code in a software language and know within seconds whether it works, and so deploy it quickly. However, the code will have to go through several abstraction layers and generic hardware components. Although you can deploy the code quickly, you do not get the fastest possible outcome. As an FPGA engineer, it may take two to three hours of compilation time before you know whether your adjustment will result in the outcome you want. However, you can increase performance at the cost of more engineering time. The day-to-day challenge you face is how to make the process as efficient as possible with the given trade-offs while pushing the boundaries of the FPGA technology. Skills needed to be an FPGA engineer Things change extremely rapidly in the trading world, and agility is the name of the game. Unsurprisingly, FPGA engineers tend to enjoy a challenge. To work as an FGPA engineer at a company like IMC, you have to be a great problem-solver, a quick learner and highly adaptable. What makes IMC a great fit for an FPGA engineer? IMC offers a great team dynamic. We are a smaller company than many larger technology or finance houses, and we operate very much like a family unit. This means that, as a graduate engineer, you’ll never be far from the action, and you’ll be able to make an impact from day one. Another key difference is that you’ll get to see the final outcome of your work. If you come up with an idea, we’ll give you the chance to make it work. If it does, you’ll see the results put into practice in a matter of days, which is always a great feeling. If it doesn’t, you’ll get to find out why – so there’s an opportunity to learn and improve for next time. Ultimately, working at IMC is about having skin in the game. You’ll be entrusted with making your own decisions. And you’ll be working side by side with super smart people who are open-minded and always interested in hearing your ideas. Market making is a technology-dependent process, and we’re all in this together. Think you have what it takes to make a difference at a technology graduate at IMC?Check out our graduate opportunities page.
