Tether Introduces New Mining Software to Enhance Efficiency and Expand Capacity

Tether, the prominent stablecoin issuer, is making strides in the cryptocurrency mining sector with the development of innovative JavaScript libraries. These libraries are specifically designed to streamline communication with Bitcoin mining hardware, including popular devices like WhatsMiner, AvalonMiner, and Antminer.

Paolo Ardoino, the CTO of Bitfinex and Tether, shared in a post on August 5 that certain parts of the Tether BTC mining software will be released as open-source projects in the future. The primary goal of this new mining software is to optimize the management of mining capacity, leading to more efficient mining operations.

Ardoino highlighted his role as a core contributor to the architecture of Moria, an orchestration tool for mining farms, which serves as the foundation for these recent advancements. The new mining software leverages Holepunch technology to enhance communication and interactions among components within the BTC mining ecosystem. This approach ensures streamlined, secure, attack-resistant, and cost-efficient communication.

In a previous post, the Tether CTO shed light on Moria’s functionalities, explaining how each device/miner is assigned a unique public/private key to enable encrypted and secure data streaming (hyper cores) and command reception (via hyper swarms). This innovative approach simplifies firewall configurations, increases resilience to failures, allows easy replication across sites, and enhances maintainability and modularity compared to previous attempts.

Despite facing legal challenges and regulatory scrutiny, Tether has remained actively involved in the cryptocurrency mining sector, demonstrating its commitment to ongoing efforts and contributions.

In addition to its involvement in mining, Tether has made strategic moves towards investing in Bitcoin. Recently, the stablecoin issuer announced its intention to allocate a portion of its monthly profits towards acquiring BTC. Moreover, Tether ventured into the field of energy production and sustainable BTC mining through a partnership with a licensed local company in Uruguay, resulting in the launch of Tether Energy. Uruguay’s reputation for a robust renewable energy infrastructure, with almost 100% of its electricity sourced from renewables, makes it an ideal location for Tether’s sustainable mining initiatives. The company is confident that this decision aligns well with its goals and values.
