According to reports, Samsung previously signed a document, according to which it has to supply the Chinese firm with Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) chips. The chips are expected to be employed for producing mining facilities, media highlighted. With finalizing the creation of such semiconductor chips in 2017, Samsung reportedly commenced the mass manufacture of them at the beginning of the current year.

On January 31, Samsung Electronics confirmed its involvement in the production of details for mining facilities. Answering the questions of TechCrunch journalists, the company’s representative assured that Samsung has already started making ASIC chips, employed for BTC, ETH, and other cryptos mining. In the response, the spokesperson said:

“Samsung’s foundry business is currently engaged in the manufacturing of cryptocurrency mining chips. However, we are unable to disclose further details regarding our customers.”
