TORONTO , June 16, 2020 /CNW/ -- ePIC Blockchain Technologies Inc., a North American-based cryptomining hardware company, today unveiled the SC200 Mining Rig for the Siacoin network. Priced at $1,250 1 USD, the SC200 has been designed for high efficiency and reliable operation for many years of profitable mining.
"ePIC is proud to announce the SC200 Mining Rig for Siacoin. Our SC200 has been designed for reliable, long-life mining along with superior performance and efficiency," states Henry Quan , CEO of ePIC Blockchain.
"We chose to support Siacoin as our first ePIC-branded blockchain mining platform. ePIC firmly embraces the Skynet vision and blockchain storage applications," he added. "The SC200 is the first of three mining products that ePIC will be releasing over the next year."
Higher Hashing performance and Better Efficiency
The SC200 Mining Rig provides superior hashing performance and better operating efficiency for greater rewards mining Siacoin.
SC200 specifications2 are:
2,200 GH/sec. hashrate at 1,300 Watts or a high-efficiency mode of 1,800 GH/sec. at 900 Watts
Compared to popular rigs on the Sia network, the SC200 provides 4x more hash rate for greater rewards and 60% better efficiency for lower operating cost.
The SC200 has been designed for reliable operation in the field using requirements, componentry and methodology common to Tier 1 GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) cards.
The SC200's robust design includes:
"Proof-of-Work remains the only battle-tested, proven consensus mechanism for a decentralized blockchain. We are thrilled that ePIC Blockchain has joined us in the Sia mining community to help secure and protect this network, while the Sia team goes on to expand Skynet, a revolutionary cloud storage solution. Luxor remains committed to producing the best mining pool for Siacoin." - Nick Hansen , CEO, Luxor Technologies
"LightSpeed Hosting is excited to partner with ePIC. Currently, LightSpeed is the largest colocation facility for Sia miners worldwide and caters to customers with 1 miner, or 1000. We're excited to see the evolution of new ASIC chips to power and secure the Sia network and look forward to working with ePIC Blockchain to provide the industries best uptime and support for their new ASICs." - Joshua Holmes , Partner, LightSpeed Hosting
Price and Availability
The SC200 is in production ramp and will be available for shipment at mid-August 2020 . Priced at $1,250 USD , volume discounts are available for large-volume purchases. Quantities are limited, as ePIC intends to cap production to avoid network saturation which makes mining unprofitable.
