Block Shares Update on MDK's Firmware, API and User Interface

"As we approach development of our own mining software, our intention is to provide the customer with a significantly greater degree of control and diagnostic capability, both via the single-miner user interface and through a robust, well-documented API, as a standard part of the mining software."

Block Shares Update on MDK's Firmware, API and User Interface
  • "The API access will support easy integration between our mining hardware and third-party software solutions. Specific features we are exploring, accessible via both our user interface and API, include the following (note the designs are illustrative only):
    • Performance monitoring. "Dashboards will provide real-time KPIs including power efficiency, hashrate, and power consumption, by hashboard and overall system."
    • Power tuning. "Ability to modulate the power consumption and hashrate of the miner across a wide power range. This feature is intended to support intermittent power in offgrid mining, grid response and heat re-use applications, as well as optimization of mining operations based on market conditions."
    • ASIC diagnostics. "The customer will be able to monitor the performance of each individual ASIC, including the temperature and frequency at which it operates, and easily identify issues with particular ASICs."
    • Failure mode notifications. "Our software will identify failing components, surface component-level information to allow customers to troubleshoot problems, and provide specific remedial actions to the user. This will help to streamline maintenance and repair efforts."
  • "What features do you think are important? Is there anything we’ve missed here? Please reach out to us at with any comments or feedback."
