DeepBrain Chain Announced Global AI Global Mining Workstations Pre-Order Plan
I. Regarding DeepBrain Chain AI Mining Workstations
High computing cost, especially GPU, has become an obstacle to the development of the artificial intelligence (AI) industry. If AI companies want to continue to train more accurate models, they need large amount of data and must acquire large computing power, which can be extremely costly.
The DeepBrain Chain ecosystem utilizes blockchain technology to integrate the globally distributed computing resources while providing customized, decentralized and dynamic services based purely on the needs of AI companies. Miners who provide AI computing can earn public traded DBC altcoins as rewards.
The pre-order of DeepBrain Chain AI Mining Workstations is the first strategic milestone of DeepBrain Chain’s blockchain-based AI global platform and ecosystem, establishing a strong foundation for the upcoming releases of the data market, AI model market, AI application market, enabling AI companies and users to share computing power, data, and models efficiently and securely. It significantly reduces AI development costs (approximately 70%) as well as drastically reduce AI application and product development time (from several months to weeks or even days). DeepBrain Chain aims to become the “Uber of AI computing”.
DeepBrain Chain AI Global Mining Workstation is an integral part of the DeepBrain Chain ecosystem. For our users, entering the DeepBrain Chain network and perform “mining” through our workstations allows them to train AI models at a much lower cost while earning profits via DBC. For DeepBrain Chain ecosystem, Gathering the scattered computing resources within the blockchain network not only help AI companies save computing costs but also increase the ecological value of DeepBrain Chain, ultimately maximize mutual benefits for all parties involved. Through DeepBrain Chain, AI companies can reach more customers, reduce the cost of data, computing power, and models, while receiving more benefits by providing services.
II. The different types of AI Mining Workstations that DeepBrain Chain
The different types of AI Mining Workstations that DeepBrain Chain offers (the pricing for AI Mining Workstations, AI training, and mining revenue will change based on GPU, storage, and speed. The team at DeepBrain Chain will define a Benchmark GPU, as well as making necessary adjustments based on the AI training speed that corresponds to different GPU and other configurations)
1. Mid-size AI Mining Station $6,000 - $15,000
· 2, 4 GPUs
· Over 44 TFLOPs; 128GB DDR4, 4TB SSD, 1600W, on-demand offline storage
2. Large-size AI Mining Workstation $13,000 - $33,000
· 4, 8 GPUs
· Over 88 TFLOPS; 192GB DDR4, 16TB SSD, 3200W, on-demand offline storage
· Professional hosting recommended for cooling & noise reduction
3. Super-size AI Mining Super Cluster; Price Per Customization
· 16, 32, 64, 128 GPUs
· Custom designed on stackable nodes (8 GPUs per node)
· Requires to be placed in a professional data center with cooling system
III. Estimations for cost and profit
DeepBrain Chain will select benchmark GPU to level the AI training speed, mining rewards of other GPU and hardware configuration will be adjusted based on AI training speed difference.
Example: AI Mining Workstation with 8 mid-range benchmark GPUs, $27,500 USD
Hardware with 8 GPUs $27,500
Facilities (Ship, setup, host) $2,000
Total Fix Cost $29,500
Total Fix Cost per GPU $3,688
Daily Power Consumption 74.4 KW
Electric Metering $0.12
Daily Power Cost $8.93
Daily Power Cost per GPU $1.12
DBC Current Price $0.11
Annual DBC mining supply 350 mil
Initial DBC Mining GPUs 2500
Daily DBC mined per GPU 384
Daily Gross Income $42.19
Trust Fee (15%) $6.33
Daily Power Cost per GPU $1.12
Daily Net Income $34.75
The cost and return ratio:
Fixed costs: $3,688 / daily earnings: $34.75 ≈ 106 days
There are multiple streams of revenue for DBC AI Mining Workstations:
1. Mining revenue (see above). Based on the currency of $0.11 USD, the total number of 2500 GPUs in the entire network can recover the cost of a mining workstation within 106 days on average; after breakeven, the workstation can continue to be used for mining for additional revenues.
2. DBC appreciation. The miners can earn more profits through the development of DeepBrain Chain’s ecosystem and the rising of token prices.
3. Complete AI training tasks (deep learning, machine learning etc.) published by other users on DeepBrain Chain network and earn additional DBC tokens and profits.
4. DeepBrain Chain’s AI Mining Workstation is a full-featured AI server with quality GPUs that have great second-hand selling value.
