The blockchain organization Bloq Labs has introduced a beta version of a new software suite for cryptocurrency miners called Titan. Bloq co-founder Jeff Garzik announced the project at the recent Binance conference in Singapore and claims the protocol can maximize a mining machine’s hashrate by double digits with thoughtful configuration and dynamic adjustment.
Titan’s Mining Management Software Suite Claims to Increase Hash Power by Double Digits
Back in the spring of 2017, the company Bloq introduced a new part of the business called Bloq Labs that aims to support open source projects in the bitcoin and blockchain ecosystem. According to the company’s CEO, Jeff Garzik, Bloq Labs has created a waiting list for miners who want to participate in Titan’s beta testing. The Titan protocol is a software suite dedicated to overseeing cryptocurrency mining infrastructure. If configured correctly, Bloq Labs claims, Titan can increase a mining pool’s hash power “by double digits.” “Titan gets the most out of your machines,” explains the software’s website Titan.io.
According to Titan CEO Ryan Condron, the project has been working in stealth mode for some time now and says the software will make “crypto mining easier, more profitable, and more scalable.” Titan has opened its beta waitlist to the public and at the time of publication, there are 71 registrants so far according to the website counter. The Titan program is free to install but the company will gain profit from advanced hashrate production.
Maximize a Mining Rig’s Shelf Life With Titan’s Efficiency
Titan can be tethered to an entire mining farm, improve watt extraction, and provide further optimizations like enhancing overclocking through a proficient system of machine learning. The team hopes large mining facilities will be attracted to Titan’s offerings. Additionally, Titan’s software will be able to mine multiple cryptocurrencies with different consensus algorithms. The protocol will maximize the devices’ shelf life and shave operation costs by keeping machines up to speed, the company’s website explains. Titan’s website also notes that less downtime in the mining industry equals more money.
“The fact is, managing mining hardware is a very manual process — Not only do you have to individually access and configure each device, but you must continually monitor and adjust your devices to make sure that they are online and mining the most profitable coin,” explained Condron during the beta launch announcement. “Additionally, there’s the balancing act of managing operational costs and physical infrastructure concerns, such as electricity costs, wire management, and heat dissipation.”
The Titan project is also led by the creator of the cryptocurrency mining profitability website Coinwarz Kyle Howlett. The project’s CTO has been creating mining tools for better ROI since 2012 and he believes the new software takes things to the next level. If configured properly with a mining farm the Titan software brings plug-and-play capabilities to mining, emphasized Howlett. Further, the organization detailed that it has a slew of new optimization features to disclose in the coming months.
