EZ Blockchain is a leader in the infrastructure for proof of work industry blockchains. The company recently unveiled a portable data center that comes in the form of a 40-foot container. Their data center is called EZ Smartbox 3.0 and it has a 2500KW capacity.
The unit offers great efficiency and has a huge power capacity for crypto mining. With the growth of the blockchain sector in the US, capital expenditure is a major factor in the high-density computing sector. The SZ Smartbox 3.0 is designed to provide a plug and play solution for a blockchain mining center at reasonable prices.
Portable Mining Centers
The first portable blockchain mining center by EZ was developed in 2017. A year later, they developed the EZ Smartbox. The third alliteration of the Smartrtbox has made huge improvements on previous versions. In the 3.0 version, it can hold 720 Whatsminer M30S or Antminer S17/S19 mining rigs and has a power consumption of up to 2500KW.
According to the EZ Blockchain’s president, the new center will come with new features that make it suited for the fast-growing blockchain sector. As a result, they developed the 3.0 version faster than all previous models. It only took them six months of R&D to create Smartbox 3.0. The Smartbox 3.0 features include:
- Temperature regulation in environments with temperatures up to 120°F
- A separate Power Room that is fitted with top-notch electric components such as ABB and Schneider Electric
- Double pole breakers
- Remote main breakers for limited access field operations that can synchronize with the grid to control peak demand hours
- High-end UniFi network equipment
- Field-ready operation with fast deployment on flat surfaces or trailers
- Swing-out panels fitted with air-intake filters for efficient service
- Easily accessible Swing out electric fan panels
- Adjustable rack shelves to accommodate miners with different dimensions
- New hot/cold zone dividers
The company used its extensive experience in the development of the Smartbox 3.0. They decided not to use retrofitted marine containers used by other companies due to the overheating problem at temperatures above 95°F.
They developed aluminum sheets with water and fire-resistant foam panels between them. The design provides thermal insulation while also cutting weight for easy transportation and installation. EZ Blockchain has already established a manufacturing line to increase the production of the centers.
About EZ Blockchain
EZ Blockchain is a Chicago-based service company in the crypto mining sector facilities industry. They build and operate the infrastructure needed for blockchain mining and they have been around since 2017. With the growth of the blockchain sector in the US, their prospects look great.
The crypto mining sector is no longer a hobbyist industry. More companies are entering the sector and investing millions of dollars. However, cost remains a major concern. By providing firms with a plug and play option that is highly efficient, it could make the sector look even more lucrative. It is especially so after the BTC halving event, which reduced profitability for companies in the sector.
