Hi all,

We have built, field tested and are now ramping up to take orders / offer hosting for our new product, the HashGen. You can see more detail / brochures on this product here: www.upstreamdata.ca & make sure to follow us on twitter @UpstreamDataInc.

The HashGen is not just another miner-in-a-box, we offer a solution to solve a serious problem in the oil and gas industry. Wherever oil is produced, natural gas and methane is also produced as a byproduct (casing gas / solution gas / process release / etc). In many cases this methane cannot feasibly be brought to market because the cost and liability associated with pipelines or power infrastructure does not offer a ROI, not to mention the volumes of gas can fluctuate and decrease rapidly. In such cases the oil producer will either flare or vent the methane to atmosphere, i.e. waste the energy.

That's where Upstream Data comes in. We have designed the HashGen to be portable and plug and play. Each unit consists of both a power plant (natural gas genset) and hashing datacenter. We are currently building HashGens capable of 75 kW mining load and we can go as high as 110 kW with the right genset. We are also in the process of designing much larger, more power dense units.

We are not just selling this product to oil companies, we are planning to offer it to anybody under a managed-mining agreement. Whoever buys and owns the HashGen is eligible to be paid for all power generated for the life of the unit (building should last 20+ years, genset needs to be rebuilt every 4-5 years). Upstream will manage the HashGens for our customers for a fee, monitoring them 24/7 to ensure maximum up-time and moving them to new facilities as needed. We will also make sure they are maxed out with miners to maximize revenue to the owner. The unit is completely plug-and-play and just needs to be tied into any source of gas, the entire process takes less than 2 hours to disconnect from one site and reconnect to another (not including travel time).

Please see the website for information on how to get involved.

We had another topic going on this here (since locked), with some build pics linked:

This thread can be used to discuss / ask questions. Thanks for your interest.

So, what's the Internet component for this solution? The intro suggests that it could be in remote locations where Natural Gas is readily available, and presumably inexpensive.

Perhaps Internet access is left to the purchaser? Seems to diminish the "Plug and Play" a bit.

We fit these units with a cellular modem, which is what we are currently mining on. For mining managed by Upstream, our service area has adequate cell coverage. If you purchase and wish to manage it yourself, you can easily integrate any internet package.
