Pioneer cohort inducted to Bitmain’s Ant Training Academy for industry’s first accreditation course for miner maintenance

SHENZHEN, 15 July 2019 – Bitmain, the world’s top 10 and China’s second largest fabless chipmaker, has inducted the pioneer cohort for the Ant Training Academy (ATA) to officially launch the industry’s first accreditation course for miner maintenance.

“Until now, education around miner maintenance was limited to what industry participants could ‘hack’ together. The Ant Training Academy is part of Bitmain’s continued commitment to improve cryptocurrency mining standards, encourage more sustainable practices and bring credibility to the industry,” said Jiang Zhihua, Bitmain’s Global Marketing Director. 

Ant Training Academy Opening Ceremony

ATA’s Maintenance Training Course is designed to educate maintenance personnel for mining farms on how to install, operate, and repair mining equipment. The course runs for a two week period in Shenzhen, China.

The first 16 participants enrolled for this quarter were inducted to ATA’s Maintenance Training Course in an opening Ceremony in Shenzhen where they will be trained by Bitmain’s Senior Engineers of the Antminer Brand.

Successful course participants will qualify for a “Certificate of Accomplishment”, which will include an assessment of their skill level. ATA course certificates aim to be a global standard for cryptocurrency miner maintenance. High-performing participants will be awarded certificates of Excellence and Top Performance.

Ant Training Academy Programme

“Getting the maintenance process right helps to extend the lifetime of cryptocurrency mining hardware. But right now, it is difficult to find the right resources to help one to upskill. I look forward to taking ATA’s course as it’s practical, will save us the cost of sending miners for repair and would shorten the timeframe of miner downtime in the long run,” said Tang Huihong, a technician at a company selling second-hand miners.

Full programme details for ATA’s Maintenance Training Course can be found here.

Applicants for ATA’s next cohort can register via Bitmain’s website.

As bitcoin price rises, Bitmain sees an increased interest in Antminers at Bitcoin2019

Cryptocurrency mining can only succeed if there is a community of miners and enthusiasts, so Bitmain was glad to participate in the Bitcoin2019 conference in San Francisco last week.

With Edward Snowden giving a virtual address, and a programme packed with countless founders, BUIDLers and C-level cryptocurrency history-makers, this was an audience that came because it cares about the future of Bitcoin, and cryptocurrency’s global potential for disruption.

Antminer Booth in Bitcoin2019

In the exhibition hall, the Antminer booth was packed with interested attendees who were looking to learn more about the Antminers currently on the market, and how to get started in cryptocurrency mining. Few things pique the interest of a bitcoin crowd like an imminent bull run.

Speaking to a buzzing audience on the Main Stage, Sharif Allayarov, the regional director of North Central South America, gave the audience a brief overview of Bitmain’s history, achievements, and Antminers.

Decentralizing knowledge 

With the background set, Sharif outlined the current state of Bitmain; clarifying the separate Bitmain brands, and each of their functions, before highlighting how they all fit within the blockchain industry, with a particular focus on service.

This offered an opportunity to provide insights into how Bitmain innovates and learns to best serve its customers, whilst also sharing how the company is growing at a pace it can maintain. 

Building on from Bitmain’s service repair training module comes in a newly updated program: The Ant Training Academy (ATA).

Promoting longevity in cryptocurrency mining

Ant Training Academy

As mining establishes itself as an industry, the bitcoin community has primarily taught itself how to fix Antminers and hacked together all sorts of genius solutions. 

In honour of their perseverance, and in order to extend the productive life of Antminers, Bitmain is establishing an academy to share the insights and techniques that keep Antminers operating for as long as possible.

This is also part of a commitment to pursuing sustainable ways to mine cryptocurrency, and developing innovations that serve customers throughout the product’s lifetime – not just at the selling point.

A continued commitment to improve the cryptocurrency mining ecosystem

In Bitmain’s six years, a lot has been learnt about the cryptocurrency mining ecosystem, as the company has grown alongside the ecosystem. It fits with a dedication to decentralisation to share that knowledge, and use it to strengthen the industry as a whole.

Swayed by the speech, Sharif was approached by throngs of audience members afterwards, keen to take his contact details to establish and further expand relationships to improve the cryptocurrency mining roadmap. 

The rising price of bitcoin has served to further fuel interest in hobbyist and aspiring enterprise miners alike, with questions ranging from the practicalities of which products best suit their needs, through to managing power efficiency and the best methods of maintenance.

It seems only apt that the cradle of technology innovation on America’s West Coast became the stage for a global audience to hear about this Chinese company’s renewed vigour in supporting all of its customers, worldwide.
