Founded in 2013, Bitmain Technologies, now among the world's most recognizable Bitcoin companies, was established to develop and sell the world’s leading bitcoin miners using Bitmain's ASIC chip technology. Starting with the Antminer S1, our task continuously became more difficult as bitcoin’s “difficulty level” kept rising. We followed Moore’s Law in this emerging field of ASIC chip design and pioneered it, time and again. In May of 2016 we released the Antminer S9, the world’s first consumer-grade bitcoin miner based on a 16nm process ASIC chip. This is also the world’s most power-efficient bitcoin miner, taking that title away from its predecessor, the Antminer S7.
Bitmain is now among the most recognizable companies in the cryptocurrency space and the proud parent of several brands, among them Antminer, Antpool, and Hashnest, all of which are ranked number one in their respective fields. Our machines and customers are present in multiple locations in almost every country of the world.
We remain devoted to the production of high quality and efficient computing chips, high density server equipment, and large scale parallel computing software.
We are proudly headquartered in Beijing, with offices in Amsterdam, Hong Kong, Tel Aviv, Qingdao, Chengdu, Shanghai and Shenzhen.
