The First Bitcoin ASICs are Hashing Away!

After months and months of speculation, confusion, and downright frustration, Avalon has defeated the competition and delivered the first Bitcoin ASIC devices to market.

Jeff Garzik has been updating his blog with pictures of his Avalon-branded machine, and has now reported on IRC that he is indeed mining with the ASIC at 68252.65 Mhps.

[00:50] <@jgarzik> mining!
[00:50] <@jgarzik> [MHS av] => 68252.65


  1. Bitcoin history is being written today. ASIC mining goes live *and* bitcoin looks set to cross 20USD. Not a bad day.

  2. This is an epic day!
