Mobile mining unit

The Most Efficient Mobile Mining Units.

Nativecoin's plug-and-play satellite-ready units, an outdoor position on the vessel, and connection to standard board electricity will allow for on-journey mining.

The mobile mining units are produced in one of the best Japanese container factories. During a short but secret journey to three different factories with increasing supervision and rigorous inspections, all units are equipped with optimized hardware and cooling systems and ready to enter the international port of Tokyo, to be shipped to any destination in the World.

Mechanical Properties

20ft Sea Container: Standardized, internationally accepted standard housing, certified and proven design, seaworthy.
Design: Due to its standardized dimensions, our units are designed to be transported by virtually any vehicle (road truck, vessel, train) capable of transporting 20 or 40 ft containers.
Stackability: Based on stackable standard containers, our units can be stacked on top of each other to form a powerful, functional array: A stack of 2x3x3 units can be deployed in less than an hour, requires a mere 100 Sq m of floor space and provides an energy conversion of about 1 Megawatt. A stack can share infrastructure features such as satellite / 4G uplinks.
It Lasts: Built from best established Corten steel, harsh climate conditions and corrosion are not a problem anymore as this type of steel was originally developed for use without paint. Also known as “weathering steel”, this material rapidly develops a patina of iron oxide, which protects the steel from further corrosion.
Readily rearrangeable:  Using a standard forklift truck, our units can be rearranged any time. For example, if used as an auxiliary heater in a warehouse or greenhouse, the units can be moved in- and outside as required by the season. For heating warehouses or industrial halls, the units can be moved from one place to another depending on the required local air temperatures. Additionally, the units can be moved between transformer stations inside industrial buildings to ensure the best use of spare capacities and avoid the need for large, long, inefficient cables.
Remote Management: Automatic satellite antenna positioning allows for convenient and automated adjustments. The satellite antenna is positioned on the basis of receiver signal strength indications, ensuring a functionally optimized and autonomous positioning anywhere in the world. For transportation purposes, or in case of severe weather conditions (storms), the antenna can be automatically retracted, laid flat on top of the container or fully removed manually. All of these features are remotely manageable.
System: Racks inside the container contain the computer systems which are either graphical processing unit based (GPU-based) or based on the high-performance cubic/cylindrical shape of the “antminer”.

In the GPU-based computers, the GPUs are the energy-intensive parts with a “hot(H)” and a “cold(C)” side and are thus placed as far as possible from each other. In general, the GPUs are arranged along the long horizontal axis of a shelf (width of the shelf). The order of the GPUs is important. They are in an ...HC-CH-HC-CH-HC... alternating order (each GPU rotated by 180 degrees compared to its neighbor), forming CH-HC-pairs, and the distance between two opposing hot sides is much further compared to the distance between two opposing cold sides. Additionally, each HC-CH pair of GPUs is placed alternatingly away from the neighboring pairs of GPUs on the second horizontal axis perpendicular to the axis of the primary direction of the GPU arrangement on the rack of shelves (long axis of the shelf). These results are based on a working prototype, where optimization experiments and calculations using thermography and air-flow simulations have resulted in the development of this schema.


Problems in the Renewable Energy Industry

The collapse in the price of solar-power panels has triggered an exponential expansion of new photovoltaic plants worldwide – leading to unprecedented local overcapacities on sunny days. Local “feed-in” rewards into our mobile mining units are of a much higher magnitude than for regular feed-in tariffs from the nets, because photovoltaic prices have plummeted, it has become more and more attractive for solar plants to expand and invest in additional revenue streams that ensure a more stable output during periods of low solar irradiance. This however results in massive and unprecedented local overcapacities: the perfect use-case for our endeavor.

Making the most out of unused renewable and other energy sources

We are accessing this low-priced electricity at its source: Even the smallest overcapacity at a decentralized transformer station (>50 KW) can be efficiently used by our units.By nature, electricity overcapacities have been inaccessible and useless to date. Our unique concept of mobile ‘energy sinks’ heralds a groundbreaking paradigm shift, not only for power plant owners, but also for smart investors who will be rewarded with an unprecedented ROI.
