Braiins Systems, the company behind the Slush Pool, has announced Braiins OS. The creators of this bitcoin mining software have claimed that it’s the world’s first fully open source system for cryptocurrency embedded devices.
The initial release of the operating system is based on OpenWrt, which is basically a Linux operating system for embedded devices. You can find its code here.
Those who know about OpenWrt must be aware of the fact that it’s very versatile. As a result, Braiins OS can also be extended in different applications in future.
In a Medium post, Braiins Systems has said that different weird cases of non-standard behavior of mining devices cause tons of issues. With this new mining software, the company wishes to make things easier for mining pool operators and miners.
The OS keeps monitoring the working conditions and hardware to create reports of errors and performance. Braiins also claimed to reduce power consumption by 20%.
The very first Braiins OS release lets you download the images for Antminer S9 and DragonMintT1. Currently, the software is in the alpha stage, and the developers have requested the miners to test it and share the feedback.
