New Materia1 Decred (DCR) ASIC Miners in the Works

17 Nov

It seems that there is a second company working on a Decred (DCR) ASIC miner, so it will not only be the recently announced Obelisk DCR1 apparently. There are two models announced for the moment from DCRasic – Materia 1 supposedly capable of offering 400 GHS (Blake-256) with 275 Watts of power and priced at $1099 and Materia1-TURBO to offer 3 THS (Blake-256) with 2.1 kW of power usage and a hefty price tag of $7500. Materia1 ASICs are still not available for order as their development is supposedly currently ongoing, but the pre-sale should start by the end of this month according to the available information. The delivery of the final product will most likely not be earlier than 6 months from the start of the sale, if the project is successfully funded and sometime in 2018 we might end up with multiple Decred (DCR) ASIC miner options.

We’ve had some concerns after the recent announcement of the Obelisk and so we do here, so while are going to keep an eye on the project with interest we advice a lot of caution should you decide to invest in any of the two options at the moment. Both companies haven’t delivered any ASIC miners so far and their projects are apparently both still in development and the risk that they may not deliver is real. For the moment both projects seem like high risk ones, but in the world of crypto often if the risk pays off it pays a lot.

For some, though not much, more details about the Materia1 Decred (DCR) ASIC miners…

Isn’t the decred supply almost filled? I’m wondering, what are the chances for the supply to run out, and for someone who buys one of these two asics to be unable to actually mine/make any money with them?

Decred’s emission rate is similar to that of bitcoin but smoother (no halvening). At this time, 31.4% of coins have been mined. You can get more info at

They have announced they are switching to 16nm to further compete with Obalisk DCR1 miner. Still waiting for specs.

I invested heavily in Obelisk DCR1s. For being such a short pre-sale, they still sold >1200 of them. And, with DCRasic’s switch to 16nm, I’m betting heavily on a good grace period before any competition comes.
