To fulfill its goal of providing developers with a comprehensive mining toolkit, the firm has requested feedback and input from individual users on their required features including the cost of the mining hardware, the power requirements as well as the connection.

The idea of an open-source mining system based on custom silicon was first shared by Jack Patrick Dorsey, co-founder, principal executive officer, and chairperson of Block in an earlier tweet in 2021.

According to the CEO, after receiving overwhelming support from the community it proceeded with the development of its own bitcoin mining semiconductor chips. The internet entrepreneur believes that mining BTC should be as easy as plugging a rig into a power source.
