We launched Obelisk in June 2017, aiming to shine a light of transparency into the opaque mining ecosystem and offer a trusted alternative to the monopoly.
Obelisk designs and manufactures PoW mining hardware. We currently produce ASIC miners for Siacoin and Decred, and we will ultimately produce miners for most PoW cryptocurrencies – including Bitcoin. Obelisk prioritizes transparency, customer service, and good design. We are based in Boston, and our hardware is manufacturered in the United States.
Our goal is to create a strong, healthy PoW ecosystem. This means open-sourcing all our work, including software and hardware. This means only self-mining for testing purposes and not competing with our customers. And this means publishing content to increase transparency in a historically secretive industry.
Obelisk expects to complete our Cuckatoo31+ ASIC design by end of March 2019. We are working toward a GRN1 ship date of October 2019.
