The request published on LinkedIn details that Block would be interested in graduates in BSEE or Applied Sciences, who have more than ten years of experience in specialized hardware since the goal is to create the new generation of ASIC miners for Bitcoin.

The company for the processing of payments and the use of Bitcoin, Block, published a new job opening in which they are looking for a team to work on the next generation of mining devices for the first digital currency.

This information got revealed by the Block team through an official publication in their LinkedIn account. They indicate that the applicants who get accepted for the vacancy will work on new ASIC devices. These devices got designed to mine Bitcoin and thus represent the sector and its needs.

Those elected would have to assume tasks regarding the design of digital frameworks, creation of specification and implementation documents, integration of algorithms and functions, and data reviews.

Therefore, people must have a BSEE or Applied Sciences degree and have more than ten years of experience. In addition, they must have a technological background in specialized hardware and engineering of the underlying concepts of digital design and architecture.

This New Mining ASIC l

Although it is a fact that Block is going to build a new team for this work, the question that remains in the air is what this new mining hardware will be like in which they want to work.

Although that information is currently classified, the CEO of Block, Jack Dorsey, left in an extensive Twitter thread where he pointed out some central questions and ideas for a new Bitcoin mining system, specifying especially in five aspects:

Dorsey spoke about the distribution of miners. Dorsey stressed that the more participants there are, the more guarantees in this sense to settle transactions safely.

The representative also spoke about mining efficiency. In this sense, Dorsey assured that promoting clean and efficient energy is an excellent choice that could boost the economy, the impact, and the scalability of Bitcoin.

Given the implications and costs associated with silicon-based solutions, the manager recommended combining the design process with this material closely with that of the software and system.

The leader also highlighted Vertical integration. Regarding companies that wish to work within the sector, the vertical integration process would eliminate dependence on any external production factor that could create restrictions and uncertainties.

The use of ASICs can be complex for many, so the bet aims to overcome the complexity of BTC mining so that more people can access it, being as simple as using a toaster.

If Block and Jack Dorsey succeed, the ecosystem of mining devices would have one more competitor and would even try to open space in an industry dominated by companies like Bitmain, the latter being the best-known name within the mining ecosystem of cryptocurrencies.
