What if a supercomputer is used for bitcoin mining?


Bitcoin mining knows that these bitcoin mining machines are used for mining by the ant mine machine Shenma mining machine, but what if you use a supercomputer to mine? Is this a strange idea? In the end, is he worth it?

Supercomputer to bitcoin mining?


Supercomputers differ from Bitcoin miners because they have to solve other tasks. For professional bitcoin miners, so-called ASIC chips are used, which have been optimized for the hash SHA-256 algorithm. If a supercomputer is going to do bitcoin mining now, the hash value will not change much. In addition, the success of a supercomputer will be controversial because it is very inefficient compared to Asics. It may be so incompetent that the cost of running electricity is higher than the revenue it generates. According to one statistic, the world's 500 fastest supercomputers together cannot afford all the hashing capabilities provided by the Bitcoin network.


Key factors in bitcoin mining


As mentioned earlier, Bitcoin mining requires significant computing power to encrypt the hash function. Many rigid bitcoin mining equipment is created by GPUs, FPGAs (Field Programmable Gate Arrays) and ASICs (Application Specific Integrated Circuits). You can speculate that some supercomputers are spending their time on bitcoin mining.


Supercomputers use a large amount of CPU allocation to handle large numbers of data units called vector processing, but they don't have much GPU power. It is more passive than ASICs with new GPUs and integrated circuits designed for specific uses rather than for general purpose.


Today, Bitcoin mining is usually done with ASIC chips. They are deeply optimized for solving a single target for bitcoin mining calculations. Lack of versatility can greatly expand the efficiency of its general purpose machines. This has increased the development of the Bitcoin hash network by approximately 20,000 times since the initial release of the Bitcoin ASIC. This lack of adaptability allows them to increase their efficiency relative to general-purpose hardware, and since the initial bitcoin ASIC has been sent, the bitcoin network's hash (total power) has increased by about 20,000 times (20,000 times). General-purpose chips are much less efficient at bitcoin mining and therefore have no chance to compete.


Supercomputer is used to dig bitcoin in Russia


In February, some nuclear scientists were arrested in Russia, and they wanted to abuse supercomputers for Bitcoin mining. When scientists want to connect a supercomputer to a bitcoin network, this is obviously not allowed. The authorities immediately took action and arrested scientists who have been used to perform physical calculations.


The future of bitcoin mining


Some people speculate that the future of bitcoin is at risk due to quantum computers. A paper published on arxiv.org shows how quantum computers can destroy and destroy Bitcoin's security protocols. The power curve signature system used by Bitcoin is at risk. It is inferred that the SHA256 algorithm can be cracked by quantum machines in 2027.
