Bitmain to launch the World Digital Mining Map this October
September 27, 2019
Bitmain to launch the World Digital Mining Map this October

SINGAPORE, 27 September, 2019 – During the World Digital Mining Summit (WDMS) - which will take place in Frankfurt on 8-10 October - Bitmain will launch the first platform to connect mining hardware owners with mining farm owners via the World Digital Mining Map (WDMM).

To remain price-efficient, owners of mining hardware are regularly on the lookout for locations with the right conditions and power resources for cryptocurrency mining. The WDMM will be the first global resource to connect them with mining farms who have the available power resources to host them for a fee.

“The WDMM will help make cryptocurrency mining more sustainable in the long-run by connecting mining farms and hardware owners in a whole new way. It is part of our commitment to provide miners with on-going support throughout their hardware’s lifetime and to support the sector’s overall growth,” said Matthew Wang, Director of Mining Farm of Bitmain.

Mining farm owners can apply to be listed on the WDMM during the WDMS. Applicants will need to provide details on their current mining farm setup and capacity to host other miners. In return, participants will be given personalised services from Bitmain which includes assistance with mining farm design, connections to foreign customers to host, and support with operations, purchasing and construction.

“Being listed on the WDMM helped me to find miners who want to host their rigs in my facility. Bitmain was able to connect me with the right customers to fill in the extra capacity I had. This is the support I needed to help me expand my facility at a faster pace,” said Gregory Ohanessian, Chief Mining Officer of VC Mining.

“Tapping into Bitmain’s assessment and support services via the WDMM helped me to optimise my facility. Their team suggested new ways to further the overall output from my Antminers while reducing downtime. This has made it cheaper to build my mining farm and made operations more cost-effective, driving overall profits,” added Dmitrii Ushakov, Chief Commercial Officer of Bitriver.

During the WDMS, Bitmain will also announce the winners of the Top 10 Mining Farms around the world.  The summit will provide a workshop focused on mining farm data analysis, as well as discussions on the future of mining facilities. There will be opportunities for miners and mining farm owners to exchange ideas and explore partnership opportunities.

Voting for the Top 10 Mining Farms is still open and individuals can cast a vote here.

About Bitmain

Founded in 2013, Bitmain transforms computing by building industry-defining technology in cryptocurrency, blockchain, and artificial intelligence (AI). Bitmain leads the industry in the production of integrated circuits for cryptocurrency mining, as well as mining hardware under the Antminer brand. The company also operates the largest cryptocurrency mining pools worldwide—Antpool.com and BTC.com. Bitmain technology supports a wide range of blockchain platforms and startups.

About the WDMS

World Digital Mining Summit (WDMS) is the largest digital mining event of the year. It is a two-day cryptocurrency mining summit with a focus on delivering the latest industry insights, high-class networking, and knowledge exchange.

The agenda for the three-day WDMS summit features industry investment and innovation for the mining sector. Major thought leaders include Jihan Wu (Bitmain Co-Founder), Micree Zhan (Bitmain Co-Founder & Chairman), John Ge (Matrixport CEO) and Marco Streng (Genesis Mining CEO), and top brands will present at this year’s summit.

Started in 2018, WDMS was the first and foremost meet up designed by Bitmain that brought global miners, entrepreneurs, and fellow enthusiasts together all in one place. This global mining summit showcased the leading minds and decision makers, which drove and pushed the crypto mining industry into the future. This year, WDMS is back to discuss ideas on the future of digital mining, blockchain, and more.

For this first conference, the dual themes that they have earmarked are “adoption” and “liquidity”, two of the most relevant topics for the company.

To exemplify these themes, CoinMarketCap has invited a range of speakers who will expand the range of discussion into related industries, focusing on adoption. For example, Aliza Knox, MD of Cloudflare APAC, and Brett Gibson, Partner of Initialized Capital (founded by Alexis Ohanian of Reddit), will be sharing their unique perspectives on the crypto industry.

Some familiar and respected names within the industry will also be gracing the event as speakers, including Changpeng “CZ” Zhao, CEO of Binance, Samson Mow, Chief Strategy Officer of Blockstream, and Mance Harmon, Co-founder and CEO of Hedera Hashgraph, among others. (You can find the full list of speakers here.)

Previously, CoinMarketCap had revealed that its enigmatic founder, Brandon Chez, will take the stage for the first time, together with Sunny King, the equally anonymous and incognito creator of the Proof-of-Stake (PoS) consensus mechanism.

“We are floored by the support and enthusiasm that we have had from all parts of the crypto and blockchain ecosystem for an honest, accessible conference focused on adoption and liquidity,” said Spencer Yang, VP of Special Projects at CoinMarketCap, who is leading the event, “We made event tickets free for all, so that anyone who wants to learn will be able to do so with no barriers to their education.”

The Capital will also be streaming live on the site for interviews conducted on-site by DataDash, one of the most popular YouTube influencers in crypto, focusing on technical analysis; its stage will be hosted by IvanonTech, also an influencer, most famous for his daily updates and educational initiatives in the space.


Please find out more about the event in this initial blog post by CoinMarketCap.

The First English Crypto Mining Event in China

A lot has taken place in the world of crypto mining this year. Bitcoin hash rate and difficulty levels have hit record highs. New companies such as Blockstream have ventured into the space while existing companies have expanded their infrastructure with new facilities dedicated towards mining being developed. But the biggest mining event of the year is yet to come. 

Global Mining Leaders Summit 2019 will be the first English crypto mining event in China. The event will take place this October in the Sichuan province, a region which accounts for approximately half of the Bitcoin network’s hash rate worldwide. 

The event is organized by mining publication MinerUpdate.com. From October 12th to 14th, this exclusive event will bring together the highest calibre leaders from all sectors of the mining industry. 

Attendees are limited to 300 with many top tier companies already confirmed for attendance. Keynotes and panel discussions will provide attendees with key insights into the industry. Speakers from Canaan, Slush Pool, and CoinShares will be sharing their expertise, and many more well known mining names are scheduled to speak. 

The conference provides the opportunity to connect with industry professionals who lead large mining companies globally. A mining farm tour will be organised for a number of attendees on the 14th. The trip will provide rare access to one of the most successful mining operations in the Sichuan region with a scenic detour to cultural landmarks including Mount Emei and the Leshan Buddha.

Networking opportunities will also be facilitated with dinners, cocktail parties, and exclusive meetings. Although much has happened in the mining world this year, the biggest mining partnerships, connections, and ideas are set to be formed at Global Mining Leaders Summit 2019.
