Seattle, WA - March 15, 2023 – Luxor Technologies, a full-stack Bitcoin mining software and services company, has released LuxOS, the first third-party Antminer-compatible firmware designed and engineered in the United States.
Firmware is a type of software that is designed to provide specific operating instructions to computing hardware. For Bitcoin miners, firmware allows them to adjust the performance of the ASIC chips in their Bitcoin mining rigs to optimize for higher hashrate and improved power efficiency. When mining profitability is low, miners can utilize the firmware to improve the machine’s power efficiency to increase gross margins. When profitability is high, miners can use the firmware to increase a machine’s hashrate to speed up the return on their investment.
LuxOS is now available for the Bitmain Antminer S19 series and S9 series Bitcoin miners. The Luxor team built the custom firmware from scratch in Rust and it does not rely on open source options like CG miner.
“We’ve received consistent feedback from our partners that the market lacked a US-designed-and-engineered custom firmware to help them improve their mining margins. Luxor’s team was uniquely positioned to build this product and we’re thrilled to open up our firmware to old and new partners alike,” said Luxor CEO Nick Hansen.
Bitcoin miners who use LuxOS will receive discounted fees when they use Luxor’s bitcoin mining pool.
