Bloq Labs Reveals Software Suite That Aims to Increase Hash Power by Double Digits

The blockchain organization Bloq Labs has introduced a beta version of a new software suite for cryptocurrency miners called Titan. Bloq co-founder Jeff Garzik announced the project at the recent Binance conference in Singapore and claims the protocol can maximize a mining machine’s hashrate by double digits with thoughtful configuration and dynamic adjustment.

Titan’s Mining Management Software Suite Claims to Increase Hash Power by Double Digits

Back in the spring of 2017, the company Bloq introduced a new part of the business called Bloq Labs that aims to support open source projects in the bitcoin and blockchain ecosystem. According to the company’s CEO, Jeff Garzik, Bloq Labs has created a waiting list for miners who want to participate in Titan’s beta testing. The Titan protocol is a software suite dedicated to overseeing cryptocurrency mining infrastructure. If configured correctly, Bloq Labs claims, Titan can increase a mining pool’s hash power “by double digits.” “Titan gets the most out of your machines,” explains the software’s website

According to Titan CEO Ryan Condron, the project has been working in stealth mode for some time now and says the software will make “crypto mining easier, more profitable, and more scalable.” Titan has opened its beta waitlist to the public and at the time of publication, there are 71 registrants so far according to the website counter. The Titan program is free to install but the company will gain profit from advanced hashrate production.

Maximize a Mining Rig’s Shelf Life With Titan’s Efficiency

Titan can be tethered to an entire mining farm, improve watt extraction, and provide further optimizations like enhancing overclocking through a proficient system of machine learning. The team hopes large mining facilities will be attracted to Titan’s offerings. Additionally, Titan’s software will be able to mine multiple cryptocurrencies with different consensus algorithms. The protocol will maximize the devices’ shelf life and shave operation costs by keeping machines up to speed, the company’s website explains. Titan’s website also notes that less downtime in the mining industry equals more money.

Titan CTO Kyle Howlett says “[Titan] is a fully integrated and comprehensive software suite that not only utilizes existing tools but adds a whole new layer of automation and optimization onto any mining operation.”

Titan CTO Kyle Howlett says:

“[Titan] is a fully integrated and comprehensive software suite that not only utilizes existing tools but adds a whole new layer of automation and optimization onto any mining operation.”

“The fact is, managing mining hardware is a very manual process — Not only do you have to individually access and configure each device, but you must continually monitor and adjust your devices to make sure that they are online and mining the most profitable coin,” explained Condron during the beta launch announcement.

“Additionally, there’s the balancing act of managing operational costs and physical infrastructure concerns, such as electricity costs, wire management, and heat dissipation.”

The Titan project is also led by the creator of the cryptocurrency mining profitability website Coinwarz Kyle Howlett. The project’s CTO has been creating mining tools for better ROI since 2012 and he believes the new software takes things to the next level. If configured properly with a mining farm the Titan software brings plug-and-play capabilities to mining, emphasized Howlett. Further, the organization detailed that it has a slew of new optimization features to disclose in the coming months.

Bettergram Aims to Become the Crypto Version of Telegram

The Mac build of Bettergram, a desktop version of Telegram, was launched this week. It joins the PC build of the third-party desktop client, and will soon be accompanied by mobile editions. Designed specifically for the crypto community, Bettergram boasts several modifications to Telegram including a built-in cryptocurrency price checker.



Bettergram is Telegram With Bells On

For the past year or so, Telegram has served as the crypto community’s preferred hangout. It’s the hub through which the bulk of the ICO and trading groups flow, and a pivotal part of the cryptocurrency landscape. For all its flaws – frequent downtime; inability to temporarily disable noisy groups; limited customization – Telegram is still the best platform for group conversations. While there are alternative platforms, to date these have failed to match Telegram’s all-round versatility and network effect.

Bettergram is essentially a fork of the Telegram client. It retains the functionality of the desktop client but overcomes some of the niggles users have with Telegram, which has been slow to respond to requests for new features. In particular, users have long expressed a desire to be able to pin more chats, which Telegram caps at five. With Bettergram, up to 50 chats can be pinned and there are four tabs to help filter conversations: favorites, DMs, groups, and announcements. Uploaded images are displayed in-line, rather than as a file, as is the case with Telegram for desktop.


Bettergram Adds Built-In Cryptocurrency Prices

Perhaps the most useful feature that comes with Bettergram is the ability to view current prices for the cryptocurrency top 10. This can be accessed by clicking on the emoji button in the bottom right of a chat, which opens to reveal four tabs: prices, emoji,tickers, and GIFs. The data comes from Live Coin Watch, and while it is not customizable and is limited in scope, it’s fine for providing a quick market snapshot.

As an open source project, Bettergram’s source code can be inspected and has been independently audited. Nevertheless, users should always be careful when installing third party software, especially when storing cryptocurrency wallets and other sensitive data on the same desktop device. As a precautionary measure, some cryptocurrency holders prefer to keep their crypto on an airgapped or separate device, be it mobile or desktop, that isn’t used for social networking.

Compared to desktop software such as Chrome and Station, Bettergram’s Mac client doesn’t make excessive demands on RAM or CPU. As such, it’s a viable alternative for heavy Telegram users who desire more customization and the ability to check prices on the fly.
