Uniquify, HashFast Ink Agreement to Produce ASICs to Increase Hashing Speed for Bitcoin Miners

SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- Aug 13, 2013 -- Uniquify ( www.uniquify.com) today signed a multi-year agreement with HashFast Technologies to design and provide silicon fabrication services for a new generation of application specific integrated circuits (ASICs) expected to dramatically increase hashing speed for Bitcoin miners.

Under terms of the agreement, HashFast Technologies, a pioneer in custom designs of ASIC chips for cryptographic hashing, will use Uniquify's technology for the production of ASIC chips for cryptographic hashing.

The strategic partnership between HashFast and Uniquify, a leading high-performance semiconductor intellectual property (IP) and system-on-chip (SoC) design, integration and manufacturing services supplier, is poised to move HashFast to the forefront of the cryptographic hashing industry.

"Bitcoin mining is a fast-moving and highly competitive market," says Simon Barber, HashFast founder and chief technology officer. "We chose Uniquify because we needed a partner who could produce the highest quality chip design, and get us to tape-out in record time."

HashFast Technologies will announce auctions and specifications of the new chip over the next several weeks, marking the beginning of a new wave of hashing that will allow Bitcoin miners to work at dramatically faster speeds.

"The HashFast chip will give Bitcoin miners significant advantages in both speed and resources," remarks Josh Lee, Uniquify's chief executive officer. "We're delighted to work with HashFast and look forward to its entry into the market."
