Code:
So it looks like Intel is developing Bitcoin mining chips! Presumably an exploratory R&D effort, but still, wow.

"Intel factories, the documents suggested, were responsible for at least two generations of 21 bitcoin mining chips,
 a 0.57 w/GH 22nm FinFET chip (codenamed CyrusOne)
 and a 0.22 w/GH 22nm chip (codenamed Brownfield).

Looking to review Bitcoin / Crypto mining Hardware.

"Intel factories, the documents suggested, were responsible for at least two generations of 21 bitcoin mining chips, a 0.57 w/GH 22nm FinFET chip (codenamed CyrusOne) and a 0.22 w/GH 22nm chip (codenamed Brownfield).

Though Intel has so far kept its relationship with 21 quiet, the bitcoin startup took the opposite approach in its company overview, which included a screenshot of an email allegedly from Intel CEOBrian Krzanich. Dated 5th September, the email finds Krzanich informing Pauker and investor Marc Andreessen of his opinion on a proposal to distribute bitcoin mining chips in consumer electronic devices."

So it looks more like 21 Inc uses Intel's foundry services and Intel did not design the chips.

Older thread about 21 Inc formerly known as 21e6:
