Binance’s charity work shone during the coronavirus outbreak
Binance Charity Foundation now plays an important role in Wuhan County, China, where it helps hospitals and health care professionals after the deadly coronavirus outbreak. It supplies them with the necessary medical material and medical supplies from around the world.
Already provided hundreds of thousands of nitrile, latex or PVC gloves, tens of thousands of masks, over 20,000 test kits, disinfection, protective suits and many other equipment. Binance Angels and volunteers from around the world have also been involved in charity activities since the beginning.
“We are happy to do everything in our power to help Wuhan. And we believe that China will eventually win the fight against the new coronavirus,” said Helen Hai, head of Binance charity.
Gold and silver fell significantly at the end of the week
Gold has maintained a slightly growth path since the beginning of the year. It started about $ 30 over $ 1,500 per ounce in 2020 and moved slightly to about $ 1,580 by mid-February. This was followed by stronger growth, bringing gold about $ 100 higher to about $ 1,680 during the week. From Monday, however, the price began to fall and by yesterday, when the fall was the most noticeable, gold was back at $ 1,580 per ounce.
As for silver, the decline was even stronger here, and for the first time since the beginning of the year, silver fell below $ 17 per troy ounce. Total silver has fallen by more than 13% since the start of the week from its current low 2020 levels. On Friday, trading stopped at around $ 16.67 per ounce of this precious metal, just above the December low of $ 16.54. As can be clearly seen in the chart below, Friday’s red candle is the longest since at least the beginning of 2019.
Bitmain introduced a new mining machine with massive power
Bitmain’s latest ASIC miner achieves crushing performance. The Antminer S19 is approximately twice as powerful as its predecessor. The range of several variants of the S19 mining equipment ranges from 90 TH / s to 110 TH / s and the energy efficiency is between 29.5 J / TH and 34.5 J / TH (± 5%). The older model S17 was only 55 TH / s, approximately half. The brutal performance of the new machines is expected to begin to manifest itself in the network over the next few months, when we also expect halving, which will reduce the reward for a busy block to 6.25 BTC.
Announcing the #Antminer S19 Series! The #AntminerS19 has 2 variants, a 95 TH/s and 90 TH/s model, with a power efficiency of 34.5±%5 J/TH. The #AntminerS19Pro has a 110 TH/s and 105 TH/s model, both with a power efficiency of 29.5±%5 J/TH.
