Webcast: “Why SAS is a Gold Mine for Crypto”

Cameron Brett
STA President
Sr. Director, Enterprise and Cloud Storage Marketing, KIOXIA America
Jonmichael Hands
VP, Storage Business Development, Chia Network

Just as with mining in the real world, the people who mine cryptocurrency use powerful equipment to increase their chances of finding valuable resources. But all that power comes at a cost: namely, massive energy consumption. However, next generation blockchains such as the Chia Network could change all that. Unlike other cryptocurrencies, you don’t mine Chia with a processor, graphics card, or an ASIC miner. Instead, you farm Chia with storage space, which is where hard drives and solid-state drives come in, using Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) infrastructure to connect them.

In this webinar, Jonmichael Hands, VP Storage Business Development, Chia Network, explains the “proof of space and time” (storage capacity) concept that is the foundation of the Chia network, and why SAS is a great technology for farming Chia. He also discusses the difference between Chia plotting and farming and how they are carried out with the use of storage devices.

The webcast is moderated by Cameron Brett, president of the SCSI Trade Association (STA) and director of Enterprise and Cloud Storage Marketing at KIOXIA America. SAS is the leading storage interface used in enterprise servers and storage deployments in data centers.
