About 2 years ago a company called 21 Inc (renamed from 21e6) got a tremendous amount  of coverage because they scored well over $100 Million USD for funding. Supposedly they had a close enough relationship with Intel that Intel was fabricating chips for them. They had a $400 "miner" that was their own special add-on to a Raspberry Pi. They even sold these on Amazon (no longer there).

In the last 18 months (or more), I've seen or heard nothing about them. Anybody have any news on them?

They've changed their name to  Basically still the same, different go-faster stripes.

Seems like they've pivoted from a mining startup (I remember their plan was to put miners in everything) to some kind of social network.

While their product was trash from the start, they have now entered a market that I personally think is horrific. Micropayments have already ruined the gaming industry, and their goal is to have everything on the internet gated behind micropayments.

Stop buying industrial miners, running them at home, and then complaining about the noise.
