CoinTerra Introduces Two Low-Cost Bitcoin ASIC Mining Solutions

New TerraMiner II for $3499 and Reduced Price of $5999 for TerraMiner IV in January 2014 Breaks the $3 per Gigahash Barrier

AUSTIN, Texas, Sept. 12, 2013 — (PRNewswire) — CoinTerra™ www.cointerra.com – the performance and new value leader in Bitcoin ASIC Mining solutions – today announced aggressive pricing on its second batch of specialized ASIC mining equipment.

Scheduled for delivery in early January 2014 and powered by CoinTerra's proprietary high-performance GoldStrike1™ ASIC, the new 1 TH/s TerraMiner™ II will retail for $3499 as an entry-level Bitcoin mining solution designed for the best price/performance ratio in the industry.

Previously announced as the first 2 TH/s professional Bitcoin miner, CoinTerra has announced a major price reduction for the TerraMiner IV to an astonishing $5999 for January delivery to customers. This makes CoinTerra the first Bitcoin hardware company to break the $3 per Gigahash barrier. 

Both the TerraMiner II and TerraMiner IV are fully-integrated, low-power Bitcoin mining solutions for customers seeking the most high-performance products in their respective class of entry-level and professional mining.

"We are incredibly excited by the enthusiasm and support of the Bitcoin community as we move forward towards our first shipments of the industry's highest-performance, lowest-power ASIC devices," said Ravi Iyengar, CEO and founder of CoinTerra. "With the new TerraMiner II and the incredibly aggressive pricing on the TerraMiner IV, we are going to redefine the market for profitable Bitcoin mining and put our customers first and foremost as we grow as a company through the introduction of new products."

CoinTerra's 500 GH/s GoldStrike1 ASIC is already the fastest chip announced for the Bitcoin mining market. The Physical Design results for GoldStrike1 show that a certain percentage of these ASICs can perform as high as 700 Gh/s. CoinTerra is evaluating an option allowing customers at the time of delivery to upgrade to these premium chips for a small fee, further lowering the cost per gigahash.

CoinTerra and Team

CoinTerra was founded by a team of world-renowned chip designers, mathematicians and Bitcoin community pioneers and recently closed a $1.5M seed round of funding from a range of private Angel investors who recognized the potential of the company's unique team and technology.

The company's founding members include CEO Ravi Iyengar, who was previously the Lead CPU Architect at Samsung® Corporation as well as holding senior design positions at Qualcomm®, NVIDIA®, and Intel®. 

Other team members include:

  • Dr. Timo Hanke, one of the world's leading experts on cryptography and mathematical algorithms;
  • Tuur Demeester, one of the Bitcoin community's strongest proponents, editor of the financial newsletter "Macrotrends" and a leading financial advisor;
  • Dr. Naveed Sherwani is the lead company advisor for CoinTerra and brings decades of semiconductor industry leadership and perspective to the company. Dr. Sherwani co-architected the Intel microprocessor design methodology and environment used in several microprocessors

Having worked on several generations of low-power mobile devices, the CoinTerra team brings unmatched experience in power-efficient circuitry, design methodology and implementation to Bitcoin mining.

Unlike most Bitcoin hardware companies, CoinTerra wants people to know the capabilities of its full design and advisory team as well as their personal involvement in the Bitcoin community. As such, there is a video detailing the CoinTerra products, technology and team on YouTube® with a direct link found on the CoinTerra website.
