OrionX position
Money 3.0
ª Cryptocurrencies (at least Bitcoin) represent Money 3.0
0.x – shells, beads
1.0 – gold and silver coins
2.0 – national fiat currencies
3.0 – Decentralized digital Money stored in the Internet
Others might say they are simply digital assets
ª Most of the current 4000+ coins will prove to be
worthless in the long run
ª There may be many created to represent shares of real
estate, companies, other real assets (security tokens)
ª Surprise: your Bitcoin is not in your hardware wallet or
paper wallet. That just holds the keys.
@OrionX_net
ª It’s not either/or, it’s both
ª They are each layers in a stack
ª Blockchain is the triple entry ledger of chained
transaction blocks: sender wallet, blockchain,
receiver wallet
ª A consensus algorithm (e.g. Nakamoto) that enforces
security and prevents double spending is required:
Mining
ª An incentive is required to cause the algorithm to be
computed and transactions added to the chain:
Cryptocurrency/Coin
ª Smart contracts and second layer chains extend the
functionality

Supercomputing for decentralized Money
Cryptocurrency
Mining
ª How big is the Crypto Mining Market?
ª Bitcoin market cap about $157 billion (Nov. 14, 2019)
ª Bitcoin daily production = $16 million
– money supply inflation ~ 3.6% will cut in half in May, 2020
– 24 hours x 6 blocks per hour x 12.5 coins x $8902 (as of 11/14/19)
ª Annual production run rate, Bitcoin, $5.84 billion
ª Top 50 Mining Pools produce $7.37 billion annually across 8
coins
ª Although Bitcoin is some 2/3 of the market cap of some 4800
coins, it heavily dominates the Mined (Proof of Work) coin
category by produced value
ª Ethereum #2 daily production 11,500 coins x $284 = $2.1 million
(11/14/19) or $0.77 billion per annum
@OrionX_net
CryptoSuper
Methodology
ª We only consider include Proof of Work mined coins, since they are the
only ones using significant supercomputing power
– Non-mined coins usually use Proof of Stake, Premining (“air drop”), or some
Byzantine Fault Tolerant algorithm. They either have to start with mining or air
drop. The US $ started out as Proof of Work (mining, minting) then switched to
Proof of Stake (paper certificates against gold, silver) and now is an “air drop”.
ª We consider the top 10 mined coins, look at pool statistics and then end
up with 8 mined coins making the cut
ª The mining protocols and hash rates vary in very large degree between
coins
– e.g. top pool for Bitcoin is in the Exahash/s and the top pool for Monero is in the
Megahash/s (almost 12 orders of magnitude lower)
ª Most coins (Bitcoin, Ethereum) require ASICs to be profitably mined,
others (including Monero) can run on GPUs
ª We compare mining pools by using the economic value of coins produced
per day = number of blocks mined x number of coins per block x price per
coin

ª These are the top 10 coins mined with
Proof of Work, by market cap
ª Only mined coins use supercomputer
class computational power
ª All Snapshots on hashing rates, block
production, were taken as of 10/31/19
ª Block production for Bitcoin,
Ethereum, and Bitcoin Cash: we had
information on 90 day average block rates for
mining pools available, for other coins, 30 day
averages used
ª Note the extreme variation in Hashing
rates with Bitcoin ~ 100 Exa and
Monero at ~ 300 Mega

ª Bitcoin’s hashrate has grown from 0.2
Terahashes when it was 2 years old to now ~ 100
Exahashes
ª Over 8 orders of magnitude
ª A BlockYear is 52,500 blocks each of about 10
minutes, and is approximately equal to a calendar
year
ª The Hashrate has grown as a power law of slope
12 (!) over the past decade (Hashrate regressed
against # Block years or blockchain length)
ª This amounts to 233% compound annual growth
ª In Moore’s Law terms, it is a Doubling every 7
months!

ª Pools are in fact multinational since anyone can
contribute compute power to any pool
ª This is a list by host country ranking for AEV,
some are Mixed (usually combo of China, US,
Europe)
ª Global includes US, China, and Europe within
the same pool
ª We then interleaved the list to get the top pools
by $ value of production

ª Bitcoin is environmentally friendly as compared to, say, precious metals
mining
ª Summary of latest Coinshares Bitcoin Mining Report here:
ª https://medium.com/coinshares/surprise-majority-of-btc-energy-sourced-
from-hydro-wind-solar-49f73839aec6
ª 74% of crypto mining is powered by renewable electricity sources or 4
times the world average
ª Bitcoin break even currently around $5700 with 5 cent / KWh electricity
and other costs
– Average profits of $5.4 million per day for Bitcoin when $8700, nearly $2 billion
per year
ª Focus on cheap hydropower regions: Southwest China, Eastern Canada,
Pacific Northwest, Caucasus region, Scandinavia

CryptoSuper 500 November 2019

  • 1. The image part with relationship ID rId2 was not found in the file. @OrionX_net CryptoSuper 500 Top 50 Cryptocurrency Supercomputers (EMBARGOED until) November 20, 2019 Stephen Perrenod
  • 2. @OrionX_net Digital Money Store of value Safe? Unit of account Supply? Medium of exchange Stable? What is it? ©2018 OrionX.net
  • 3. @OrionX_net OrionX position Money 3.0 ª Cryptocurrencies (at least Bitcoin) represent Money 3.0 0.x – shells, beads 1.0 – gold and silver coins 2.0 – national fiat currencies 3.0 – Decentralized digital Money stored in the Internet Others might say they are simply digital assets ª Most of the current 4000+ coins will prove to be worthless in the long run ª There may be many created to represent shares of real estate, companies, other real assets (security tokens) ª Surprise: your Bitcoin is not in your hardware wallet or paper wallet. That just holds the keys.
  • 4. @OrionX_net ª It’s not either/or, it’s both ª They are each layers in a stack ª Blockchain is the triple entry ledger of chained transaction blocks: sender wallet, blockchain, receiver wallet ª A consensus algorithm (e.g. Nakamoto) that enforces security and prevents double spending is required: Mining ª An incentive is required to cause the algorithm to be computed and transactions added to the chain: Cryptocurrency/Coin ª Smart contracts and second layer chains extend the functionality Blockchain or Bitcoin? Purpose Layer Extensibility Smart Contracts, Second Layer channels Economic Incentive for recording Transactions Crypto Coin Security & Anti- Counterfeiting Consensus Algorithm (Proof of Work) Immutable Record of Transactions Blockchain
  • 5. @OrionX_net Supercomputing for decentralized Money Cryptocurrency Mining ª How big is the Crypto Mining Market? ª Bitcoin market cap about $157 billion (Nov. 14, 2019) ª Bitcoin daily production = $16 million – money supply inflation ~ 3.6% will cut in half in May, 2020 – 24 hours x 6 blocks per hour x 12.5 coins x $8902 (as of 11/14/19) ª Annual production run rate, Bitcoin, $5.84 billion ª Top 50 Mining Pools produce $7.37 billion annually across 8 coins ª Although Bitcoin is some 2/3 of the market cap of some 4800 coins, it heavily dominates the Mined (Proof of Work) coin category by produced value ª Ethereum #2 daily production 11,500 coins x $284 = $2.1 million (11/14/19) or $0.77 billion per annum
  • 6. @OrionX_net CryptoSuper Methodology ª We only consider include Proof of Work mined coins, since they are the only ones using significant supercomputing power – Non-mined coins usually use Proof of Stake, Premining (“air drop”), or some Byzantine Fault Tolerant algorithm. They either have to start with mining or air drop. The US $ started out as Proof of Work (mining, minting) then switched to Proof of Stake (paper certificates against gold, silver) and now is an “air drop”. ª We consider the top 10 mined coins, look at pool statistics and then end up with 8 mined coins making the cut ª The mining protocols and hash rates vary in very large degree between coins – e.g. top pool for Bitcoin is in the Exahash/s and the top pool for Monero is in the Megahash/s (almost 12 orders of magnitude lower) ª Most coins (Bitcoin, Ethereum) require ASICs to be profitably mined, others (including Monero) can run on GPUs ª We compare mining pools by using the economic value of coins produced per day = number of blocks mined x number of coins per block x price per coin
  • 7. @OrionX_net Top Coins Hashrate Evolution, Bitcoin Top Host Countries Top Pool Operators Summary Tables
