At the Summit of Global Digital Money Eco-industrial Chain held in September this year, Wu Jihan announced for the first time that the 7-nm chip independently developed by Bi-Mainland will be put into mass production and applied to the next generation of ant miners. The chip is integrated with up to 1 billion transistors, and the algorithm is also optimized. In addition, the chip has unique circuit structure and low power consumption technology, and the EER will be as low as 42J/T. From the perspective of chip technology iteration, the performance of these two 7Nm mines will soon be expected.
According to the previous public prospectus, BitContinent has invested a lot of R&D resources in recent years to improve and upgrade chip design. So far, the company hasDevelopmentIt also produces a variety of ASIC chips that support different kinds of encrypted digital money mining and ASIC chips for AI applications.
It is reported that BitContinent has established an engineer R&D team of more than 800 people, focusing on chip design, algorithm development, platform architecture, software and hardware research, and accumulated rich experience in team collaboration and chip design.
According to public information, in 2016, BitContinent took the lead in releasing and producing 16-nm chips, which were applied to its Ant Miner S9 and other models. In addition, Ant Miner has also launched a number of mining machines supporting different encryption algorithms to fully meet the mining needs of various digital money enthusiasts. Two years later, BitContinent introduced a new generation of 7Nm miner with new manufacturing technology, which attracted great attention of the industry.
At present, BitContinental's Ant Miner has maintained the world's first market share for a long time, with a market share of more than 70%.
According to the evening news of November 5, the temporary code 90027 of BitContinent appeared on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, and BitContinent was suspected to be listed, but there is no definite information to confirm it. Sohu technology then landed on the Hongkong stock exchange's official website, and there was no relevant information.
In addition, Coin Geek reported on November 4 that TSMC, the main chip supplier in BitContinent, will no longer supply chips to BitContinent, according to people familiar with the matter. Reported that the mainland's arrears of TSMC amounted to $more than 300 million. BitContinent owes Taiyuan $1 billion, but the former can only pay up to $700 million, unable to repay the remaining debt.
In response, on the morning of November 5, BitContinental officials responded that Coingeek continued to maliciously fabricate rumors of low character in our company, which had no credibility whatsoever. Subsequently, TSMC also said that the payment status of bit mainland was normal.
