Ep. 5: Bringing Transparency & Open-Source Software to Bitcoin Mining with Braiins' Pavel Moravec & Jan Čapek

Welcome to What’s Halvening!

Hosted by Cassie Clifton and produced by Bitcoin Magazine, the show chronicles the latest and greatest developments taking shape across the complex and ever-changing cryptocurrency mining industry through interviews with mining experts, CEOs, and general enthusiasts.

In this episode of What’s Halvening, Cassie interviews Pavel Moravec and Jan Čapek, co-founders of Braiins, the company that operates SlushPool. Braiins launched the first open-source initiative for Bitcoin mining with Brains OS in 2018, and they continue to bring open-source software and transparency to Bitcoin mining across the full stack through their other projects, as well. Today you’ll hear about

  • Covert ASICBoost
  • Implementation & features of Stratum V2, including efficiency and security improvements, as well as the inspiration behind the protocol
  • Work selection with Stratum V2 & why it’s important miners have the ability to select their own work
  • Taking back ownership of your hardware with bOS miner, as well as features of bOS miner – like improved efficiency through header-only mining, greater security & authentication mechanism, and overriding factory settings
  • Braiins’ work in supporting custom extensions in a controlled way
  • Potential barriers preventing new players from entering the hardware manufacturing space
