SlushPool Braiins OS Announces Bitcoin Miners with an Open Source Linux System for Crypto Devices
Braiins Systems, Czech Republic-based software Development Company that runs the first mining pool in the world of SlushPool has introduced Braiins OS, the first completely open-source, Linux based framework for the cryptocurrency devices on 23 September.
Braiins OS is the first completely open-source, Linux based framework for digital currency embedded devices. This announcement is focused upon mining devices since we utilized OpenWrt as a base, its highlights can be extended in numerous ways.
They created Braiins OS for the two main purposes. The first one is that the organization has a faith in open-source. In case you claim the hardware, you must have the ability to have a full control of it without stressing over some ‘hidden features.’ This isn’t the case with most of the current mining hardware. Second, during the years of operating SlushPool, the organization experienced numerous instances of non-standard behavior from mining devices which lead to unnecessary concerns.
Those ‘hidden features’ were a probable reference to Antbleed, the scandal including major mining hardware manufacturer Bitmain in early 2017 which it rose different variants of its Antminer device that might be ‘backdoored.’
Bitmain soon announced a code fix, being compelled to issue a statement denying its involvement after confronting heavy criticism.
“We never planned to utilize this feature on any Antminer without the approval from its proprietor” said earlier.
For the Braiins, mining is just the initial phase in its plans. Going ahead, it would like to extend the offering to enable users of Bitcoin and Lightning Network nodes.
The framework is presently experiencing alpha-testing and can’t be tested on an extensive scale yet.
It’s accessible for DragonMint T1 and Antminer S9 only. It’s important that the previous Bitmain represented the next generation ASIC chip BM1391 for cryptocurrencies mining utilizing the 7nm semiconductor and SHA256 algorithm.
