The shares of Bitcoin (BTC) mining agency Hive Blockchain (HIVE) are up greater than 100% because the 12 months started, whereas it only in the near past deployed its first machines primarily based on Intel‘s (INTC) Blockscale chips.

Between Tuesday, January 3 and Friday, January 13, 2023, HIVE shares jumped 104.6%. 

On January 3, a share stood at $1.53, whereas simply 10 days later, it went as much as $3.13. The highest level reached because the 12 months started was $3.18 seen on January 12. 

Hive Blockchain Technologies Ltd. Common Shares (HIVE), year-to-date:


Meanwhile, on Friday, the miner announced its industrial deployment of the HIVE BuzzMiner powered by the Intel Blockscale ASIC, “after months of planning, engineering growth, implementing manufacturing unit QA processes, subject testing and international collaboration.”

Per Executive Chairman Frank Holmes, HIVE is the primary public crypto miner to deploy its personal ASIC mining rig. He added that,

“The HIVE BuzzMiner is our testomony to Proof-of-Work being probably the most safe and strong consensus mechanism for digital property, of which Bitcoin is probably the most safe.”

Aydin Kilic, President & COO of HIVE, said that the corporate was in a position to optimize the perform of the HIVE BuzzMiner to fulfill demand response packages, in order that it could possibly take part in grid balancing initiatives. 

When it involves the machines’ efficiency, the anticipated targets have been met, mentioned the press launch. More than 1,500 HIVE BuzzMiner have been deployed within the information facilities in Canada and Sweden, and HIVE mentioned it retains the choice to provide extra HIVE BuzzMiners.

A novel level of the HIVE BuzzMiner is the dynamic vary of operation, Kilic mentioned, with the corporate having the ability to function the machines from 110 TH/s to 130 TH/s, enabling it to optimize the profitability of its fleet, by various the facility consumption and machine effectivity. The preliminary construct of 5,800 HIVE BuzzMiners can produce between 638 PH/s to 754 PH/s, he added.

Kilic said that,

“We use superior multi-variate mathematical fashions to check ever altering hashrate economics, and punctiliously monitor the manufacturing price of every Bitcoin at our numerous information facilities, together with ROI of our investments, which differ with ASIC miner efficiency. This is vital to navigating crypto bear markets efficiently, and maximizing income in bull markets. We can now modulate the ASIC miner efficiency with our HIVE BuzzMiners for optimum returns.”

Jose Rios, General Manager of Blockchain and Business Solutions within the Accelerated Computing and Graphics Group on the American multinational company Intel, added that Intel is “excited by the potential” of HIVE’s BuzzMiner system developed in collaboration with HIVE’s engineering group, but in addition that it’s “wanting ahead to continued deployment of those methods within the years forward.”

Per William Gray, CTO of HIVE, the corporate has the flexibility to develop its personal utility programming interface (API) calls, in addition to to assemble check information on the microchip stage and fine-tune the system to optimize its efficiency – and this “units the stage for future ASIC methods growth,” argued Gray.

Meanwhile, in February final 12 months, Intel said it meant to contribute to the event of blockchain applied sciences with a roadmap of energy-efficient accelerators with a number of the first prospects being Argo Blockchain, BLOCK (previously generally known as Square), and GRIID Infrastructure. Intel additionally fashioned the brand new Custom Compute Group, liable for constructing “customized silicon platforms optimized for patrons’ workloads, together with blockchain and different customized accelerated supercomputing alternatives on the edge.”
