Crypto mining Chip Vendors | GPU,FPGA,ASIC mining chips
This page mentions list of crypto mining chip vendors or manufacturers. These GPU, FPGA and ASIC chips are used for cryptocurrency mining such as bitcoin mining etc.
Introduction: Cryptocurrency such as bitcoin, litecoin are currencies in digital form. Cryptography methods are used to secure them during and after transactions and also to control its new units. Mining is used to confirm transactions are valid and allows them to be added to distributed ledger on blockchain network. Blockchain refers to chain of blocks. Each of these blocks contain information of the sender, the receiver and number of bitcoin currencies to be transferred. Blockchain involve processes which make it difficult to change or hack the system. Crypto mining process involves wallet, mining hardware and mining software. Wallet is the place where cryptocurrencies are stored.
GPU, FPGA and ASIC are most commonly used for crypto mining. FPGA is faster compare to GPUs and more flexible compare to ASIC.
