Japanese IT-company GMO Internet intends to release the world's first devices for bitcoin mining based on 7-nm chips before the end of this year. This is reported by Coindesk.
The company will start production of the new B2 miner on June 6, and its deliveries will begin in late October.
The announcement was made after several months of research and development of technology for the future device. Company reported on its plans to develop ASIC miner last September. It is expected that the device will be able to provide greater computing power with less electricity, but more detailed information will be provided along with the official announcement in June.
In addition to selling B2 to other miners, GMO Internet plans to install new devices on its own farms. Last year, the company allocated $ 90 million to develop its own business in this area.
