Some of you may have read the announcement about a Japanese company getting into mining. At this stage they're just announcing their plans and have started posting what they expect from their hardware. The details are in Japanese which fortunately I can read.

https://twitter.com/AkioHoshi/status/907849396779470848
まずマイニング設備から。チップは国内設計、国内製造。モジュール1個で10TH/s。48V直流給電。1システムボードに8モジュール。2ボードで1ブレード。1ラックに8ブレード、1.25PH/s。データセンターは16×35mの床面積で500PH/s。

Beginning with mining hardware. The chip will be developed and manufactured domestically. Each module will be 10TH/s. 48 volts DC. Each system board has 8 modules. Each blade has 2 boards. Each rack takes 8 blades coming to 1.25PH. The Data centre will be 16x35m floor space housing 500PH/S.

Of more interest is their hardware description:
https://www.gmo.jp/news/article/?id=5775

ハードウェア
計算性能 10TH/s
消費電力 500W以下
投入マイニングチップ:50,000チップから段階的に増強

設備   ラック、冷房、配電、消防、セキュリティ

電力   再生可能エネルギー(地熱、水力)

Hardware:
Estimated capability: 10TH/S
Electricity consumption: <500W

Mining chip manufacturing: Stepwise increase to 50,000 chips.

Facilities: Racks, cooling, electricity distribution, fire extinguishers, security.

Electric power: Renewable energy (geothermal, hydroelectric.)

Probably the most interesting aspect is 10TH/s for 500W which would make it class leading efficiency. The website also says they'll be using 7nm technology...

Of course we've heard of great claims of efficiency in hardware from newcomers in the past who have failed to deliver on their promises so at this stage it needs to be taken with a grain of salt.

今後の展開(時期未定)
Future plans (timeframe to be determined)

(1) クラウドマイニング事業
1. Cloud mining operation

Explains cloud mining much like any other operation that they'll be selling.

(2) 次世代マイニングボードの販売
2. Next  generation mining board sales

Public sales of their hardware!


(3) GMOコイン株式会社への仮想通貨供給
3. Provision of virtual currency to the GMO Coin public company

This appears to be them starting a cryptocurrency exchange under a daughter company to their main one.

TL;DR This established Japanese company is getting into bitcoin mining hardware and is aiming to make class beating efficiency mining hardware that it will eventually be selling to the public, timeframe unknown...

The bitcoin mining world desperately needs something to break the bitmain stranglehold on the global hashrate. Hopefully this is the beginning of something that other companies will do too. This is no new company formed just the mine bitcoin, but then bitmain has been working with mining for a long time now and understands it a lot better than the newcomers. It will be interesting to see if that existing knowhow counts for more than what established companies have to back them.

very interesting thanks for sharing - sounds like this could be a game change but lets wait to see more from them especially if they are able to hold their spec...

Ah ... this really belongs in Speculation along with the 7nm thread... If anyone else posted it here it would be moved to there,,,

Considering that the 7nm node requires using EUV and those light sources are just now starting to reach useful powers - not going to happen in their time frame. Remember, AMD and Nvidia both announced Production with a big 'P' of 16nm GPU's in mid-2015 - when did they actually start full production? Early 2016 and that was from a node size using fairly mature lithography process. EUV is a whole 'nother ballgame...

It would have been borderline in my eyes too except that this is an announcement from a well established company (been around 20 years) rather than people speculating on who or what might come out with 7nm. I've simply translated what the company has announced.

It will be interesting to see if that existing knowhow counts for more than what established companies have to back them.

My problem with bitmain is:

S-9
R-4

L-3
D-3

Hashnest


and now

 https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2173763.0

G1/G2 gpu miners

I know this is the BTC section   or  will that become the BCC section  due to bitmain.


Fuck that is a long list above is it not?

As GMO  being  savior for BTC   well maybe. But they built their own coin.

https://www.gmo.jp/en/news/article/?id=737

I actually thought Samsung or intel or nvidia or even AMD might be the company.

But GMO is interesting:

LOL 7nm ... seriously?
Hah - I'm in Japan for 4 more days maybe I need to find the address and rat out the scam Cheesy
Meh, I should have made it more clear in my first reply.
It's not even Speculation, it's a scam.

It doesn't belong here at all.

Find me a company who has a few hundred million to do 16nm development ...
Not some company doing an old outdated scam of saying that can produce something they can't produce to make it sound faster than any company before it Tongue

Just coz they're in Japan doesn't mean they're not stupid or scamming.

yeah  but to you 1108 coins on the list above are a scam  and 1 is real  .

While I admire your dedication to BTC  and not the other 1108 coins  it is not realistic to think that every coin but BTC is a scam.

We both know GMO is not going to have a working miner  of 10th at 500 watts  this year. 

What we don't know  is will they have one well ahead of everyone else.

Do i think if they build this .05 watt miner  it would be out in spring of 2018  and no one matches it for a year or more?

No  I don't think so.  But do I think they are a scam  maybe  but most likely they are just talking for now.

Just throwing this out there, but Bitfury 16nm can run down around 0.07J/GH if you really want them to.

It's not going to take 7nm miracle process to hit that kind of efficiency. I would like to see more competition outside China, and I respect Japanese engineering, but they are definitely overly optimistic.

Regarding those 1109 coins, Phil - I wouldn't say 1108 are scams but it's probably pretty close.

Agreed  many many many of them are scams.  Not all of them.

If you look at crypto coins  for what they are  you can see a need for more then one.

Multiple al-gore-rythyms are important   and some degree of multiple redundancy in the shape of multiple coins for each al-gore-rythym is important.

Calling GMO a scam  is not what I would say.

And they already launched another coin  to be used in aiding coin trades.

I have one thing in agreement with kano too many coins   can dilute and hurt any one coin.  So I would like to see coins shrink  to well under the 1109 amount we have at the moment.

Considering how much money Bitmain has and the extensive R&D they do already, I also find it unlikely they can bring these kinds of efficiency rates. Perhaps they can, but with 7nm largely unknown and all and diminishing returns on efficiency the hopes get lower. Maybe they can get it to there but they'd need to undervolt and underclock chips possibly to do so. GMO likely isn't a scam, but if you think underperforming is a complete scam then it is for you.

You might think without Satoshi there would've been no Bitcoin or without a president a government could not function, you are wrong. with or without

Bitmain there is always someone to do even worse than Wu, if Hitler was never born we would've had the millions burned and killed in a different type

Of war. what Bitmain is doing is the exact same thing anyone in their position would've done. only actions matter not words on the paper or on the screen.

Along the same lines as I said before ...
There's really only 2 companies outside Bitcoin that work in the same area as Bitcoin miners - nVidia and AMD (GPU)

Even Intel don't produce chips in the league of Bitcoin.
It's a high power, many hundreds or thousands of 'threads'/cores of operation, brute-force, CPU bound process.

Now to put some relevant points on the table:
Why are there no 7nm GPUs yet?
For all we know, it may not be possible to do a massive core, high power, bitcoin 7nm ASIC with the current production methods.
Both nVidia and AMD have made comments suggesting they are doing 7nm but there's also been suggestions about the difficulty in doing that and that they may even be targeting 10nm instead of 7nm.

Basically, if some company who has no experience with GPUs or Bitcoin, comes out making claims about producing a 7nm Bitcoin ASIC, it's either a marketing ploy with no expected miners, or worse, you can expect failure if they haven't got someone from nVida, AMD, Bitmain or Canaan (or Bitfury? Tongue) in there working with them.

The name is unfortunate is it turns out to be a legitimate product, or well fitting if it turns out to be a scam.

Those who have/had free electricity have wanted a way to turn that into money. With cryptocurrency, that has become a reality, but there's still no free lunch.

...

...

7nm is an order of magnitude harder than anything that came before.  If you're not seeing nVidia or AMD producing or even announcing parts at this node, then you're not going to see real parts coming from a random bitcoin company any time soon.  nVidia and AMD have $billions to invest.  7nm parts will come, but not soon.  7nm bitcoin mining chips will only be used to backfill fab capacity if they don't have other production to run.

Every new technology node is massively more difficult than the preceding one.  Transition to 7nm changes all sorts of things.  It's going to take literally $billions to get this tech up and running.  No one's going to waste wafers on bitcoin chips, unless for fab testing because it's actually a very simple design.  Maybe this is what they're hoping for?  I just don't see it happening.

This seems to be very interesting but we should watch out for:
- History of the company, is there any product delivered on time before?
- Production schedule and reliability of the dates?
- Any actual images/videos of the factory, the hardware in action?
