Experience with business scale mining
We started our mining endeavours in mid 2011. Since then, we started investing in newer and faster mining hardware. We started with a couple of GPU’s to mine our first coins. A short while after that we switched to FPGA’s.
In the late 2012 we got word from Butterfly Labs that they were working on a custom Mining rig which could mine MUCH faster than any GPU or FPGA on the market. We quickly ordered a few of these devices. In February we requested a refund for these devices. Because we we’re in the mining scene for so long we saw the malpractice of Butterfly Labs fairly soon.
After this experience we started communicating more with ASIC-developing companies. We have been in contact with Avalon, KnC Miner, HashFast, BitFury, CTS Miner and many more. After carefully examining those companies we decided to go with KnC Miner as our first ASIC suppliers.
Moving on to managed services
In the great cloud revolution we saw a new opportunity to change the direction of our business. We started to develop software for the miners.
Managing terrahashes worth of miners is a lot of fun to do, but takes a lot of your time.
ButAds would like to make your world easier with the Mining Platform!
The Mining Platform monitors and alerts you when a miner isn’t operating as it should be. It shows what miners are online, which aren’t and many other stats. It is designed with large-scale mines in mind, and allows you to monitor multiple datacenters from one easy portal.
Miners in your network are automatically detected and added to the network.
On The Mining Platform you can draw floor maps and assign these miners to a place on the map, making it even easier to find out which miners are misbehaving.
The Mining Platform gives insights into your miners speed, temperature, chip health but also allows you to manage where the miner mines.
Additionally you can manage remote mines with the ButAds remote connection. This allows you to directly access the GUI of you miner no matter where you are in the world, all of this, right from the Mining Platform
