Cointerra Terraminer IV Hosting

As the density of ASIC miners keeps reaching new levels, there is one unit that is leading the pack.  The Cointerra Terraminer IV comes in at 2000watt (2kW) usage hashing at speeds between 1.3 and 1.8TH/s.  The difference in performance is directly related to cooling, as the internal temperature sensors are very reactive, and will cycle down unit performance when ambient temperatures reach too high. 
Often one core of the Cointerra Terraminer IV is disabled temporarily, as the unit is split into two cores known as CTA1 and CTA0 both with their own power supply.  The construction of the unit is quite impressive, the power supplies can be replaced and swapped without opening the box or voiding the warrantee sticker on the unit, although opening the box is required for any advanced troubleshooting or investigation.  Please consult Cointerra directly before performing any advanced maintenance on your unit if there is an issue.  Often Cointerra will allow you to open the box yourself, but you must gain permission first to not void your warrantee.
Cointerra Terraminer IVs are the densest units on the market, coming in at 4U height and ~30 pounds.  These bad boys are definitely the beefiest, and running them in a standard commercial or residential setting causes significant heat and noise issues if you enjoy peace and quiet and prefer to separate your house from a sauna/airport hybrid.
In order to maximize the uptime of your Cointerra Terraminer IV, ambient temperatures ~70 degrees is highly recommended from dedicated cooling.  Manually resetting the miner has proven to be an effective method of avoiding the cycling down process from internal temperature sensors.
Overall, the Cointerra Terraminer IV, is one of the most engineered units on the market and we are proud to provide the best colocation available.  We have the tools, skills and experience to maximize return on your Terraminer IV and take the micromanagement out of your Bitcoin mining investments!

Lost Coins

Lost Coins
The Bitcoin protocol is made so that 21 million Bitcoins will ever exist within the network.  As of the day this article was written, February 27th 2014, 12.45 million coins have been distributed.  I often am asked is there any way to recover lost coins?
There are several ways coins can be lost.  One way is not having a private key to access the wallet that contains Bitcoins.  This can happen if you do not have any backups of your wallet.dat file and it becomes corrupted.  Another way is to send transfer Bitcoins to a valid address you do not control.  Destroying or deleting backups can also be a cause.

Simplified MtGox Breakdown

Simplified Breakdown of MtGox
Many people have been asking me recently on what I think about the recent developments in Bitcoin, especially the MtGox issue, so I figured I would write this to share my knowledge and my opinion.
There is abundant sensationalist information online about the stability of Bitcoin in light of recent events.  First and foremost Mt.Gox is a historic landmark for Bitcoin.  Before we had many competing exchanges such as Bitstamp, BTC-e, BTCChina, MtGox was the authority on pricing and exchanging Bitcoin.  At this point in history, MtGox was very successful in stabilizing Bitcoin’s price and making Bitcoin trading publicly accessible around the world.
