Semiconductor company Xilinx is using FPGAs to mine cryptocurrencies

According to Crypto Briefing, leaked information inside Xilinx, a semiconductor company with a market value of more than $ 24 billion, shows that they are using FPGAs (field programmable gate arrays) to mine cryptocurrencies. This area was previously dominated by Nvidia and AMD GPUs. FPGA is a chip, and miners can configure it to effectively mine different algorithms to mine different tokens. Former Core Scientific Chief Technology Officer Kristy-Leigh Minehan said that at present, FPGAs are mainly focused on low liquidity tokens, and these FPGAs pose a threat to smaller altcoins and less used mining algorithms.
