As it became known from the vacancy announcements posted by Jack Dorsey's Block company, this American organization is looking for a test hub manager for mining equipment, and is also increasing the team.
Recall that at the end of last year, Square changed its name to Block, and now the strengthening of Block's movement towards mining once again confirms the global trend of growing interest in bitcoin mining, which means that participants in this area perceive the current "bearish" market of the price of cryptocurrency No. 1 as a temporary phenomenon.
Currently, the Block mining division is developing "bitcoin mining equipment, as well as other related elements for mining infrastructure."
Earlier, Block stated that they aim to make bitcoin mining available to as many people in the world as possible, and in this regard, they are working to improve the performance of mining machines, as well as simplify working with them.
The company drew attention to the fact that they intend to resolve the issue with the stability of the mining equipment so that it does not fail and requires as little repair as possible. In addition, it is planned to significantly reduce the noise of this equipment so that it is more comfortable to use.
The announcement of the hiring of the head of the test hub also states that the hub will run-in both the mining equipment itself and the software for bitcoin mining, and the focus of the specialists' attention is on all operational issues, including the power of machines, their cooling, the impact of external conditions such as dustiness on the work of miners, monitoring the performance of machines, as well as issues of connecting mining equipment to mining pools."
To solve these tasks, the Block team also hires product managers, as well as engineers who will "develop a new generation of mining machines", create "the first mining farms from such machines", and launch "an assortment of new mining machines". In addition, employees are being recruited who will continue working on the bitcoin wallet from Block, which has been under development since the spring of this year.
Finally, the Block team will be strengthened in the form of communications and PR staff, as well as interaction with partners in the mining industry and in the cryptosphere as a whole. So, this month Block announced a partnership agreement with Circle, which is behind the USDC stablecoin project.
