It is noted that the new operating system standartisied the working principles of devices and interaction with Slush Pool. Moreover, with the help of Braiins users should get full control over the miners, in order to avoid the introduction of manufacturers of various exploits in the firmware of their products.
It is noteworthy that in the blog Slush Pool provided a link to a description backdoor Antbleed, which the company allegedly Bitmain have implemented in the firmware of all Antminer.
Braiins OS analyzes the operating environment of the device, handles errors and provides information about the performance.
However, the system is still at the stage of alpha testing and not ready for use on a large scale.
At the moment the product is available only for Antminer DragonMint S9 and T1.
We will remind, earlier Bitmain introduced the high-performance chip BM1391 on the basis of 7nm-process technology. The energy efficiency of the product is 42 J/TH.
