Titan, a new product from Bloq Labs, aims to make it easier to set up and run new blockchain miners in global farms.
The software is essentially a web-based mining manager for owners of large setups. You install it onto your machines and then launch a server that will collect and analyse all of the miners on your network. Once it has everything sorted, it will show their output, allow you to manage security and uptime, and generally makes it easy to see your network at a glance. It also manages overclocking and shows you, at a glance, how hot each machine is running.
"We're building an automation layer for farm management," said co-founder and CEO Ryan Condron. "Each install is actively monitoring your network on-boarding devices, securing the devices, optimizing the devices, and then routing the hash power to the most popular point at any moment. "
"We get granular control over each device so we can really try to overclock based on chip temperatures. We do share auditing so every single share that rolls through the Titan software can see what was accepted by the pool," he said. "Rejecting one of the biggest issues right now with mining farms that use a public pool. They have to trust the pool's dash for for the stats."
Titan watches the work done by each miner, confirming that each machine receives credit for its work.
The team made installing Titan a one-click process. Once the miners are connected to the network you can watch them and even change root passwords as necessary. Condron said the solution even works globally, allowing you to connect miners remotely. The product works with a number of mining rigs including the AntMiner S9 and S11.
"The concept for this was to make mining as easy as possible and as stable as possible," he said. "Our long term vision is called the Titan Marketplace, where you could take a portion of your hash power and if you you want, you can put up on the market for others to use."
The tool will launch this summer and the Marketplace launches in the fall, said Condron. They announced availability of the product at Consensus 2019Consensus 2019.
