How to create a fake ASIC miner from scratch
A number of ASIC manufacturers have been accused of using fake ASIC boards in order to fool regulators into approving their products.
The issue has been on the minds of many consumers, who are wary of purchasing a counterfeit ASIC, as it is more expensive than legitimate chips.
The problem has also raised concerns about ASIC manufacturers using a number of circuit boards to construct their devices.
According to the Chinese government, the ASIC industry is controlled by “big state monopolies”, which is a common accusation against them.
However, some of the companies involved in the counterfeit ASIC market, including SinoVentures, are not part of the government-controlled monopoly, and are instead private companies.
According the Shanghai Daily, Sino Ventsures and its affiliate, Jiaotong, were among those that were accused of manufacturing fake ASIC chips, but the claims were rejected by the court.
“The court rejected the allegations that ASICs were manufactured by Jiaomong and that they had been sold in the Shanghai area,” a spokesperson for the court told the publication.
“We will continue to vigorously defend ourselves in the courts.”
Jiaotongs spokesman, Li Jianwei, said that the company had no intention of selling fake ASICs, and would fight the case vigorously.
“They are very much the victims here.
They’re trying to make a quick buck out of this case, they’re just trying to take advantage of it,” he said.
The Chinese government has taken a number other steps to crack down on counterfeit ASIC chips.
Last year, it banned the manufacture and sale of counterfeit ASICs for use in the country’s economy.
In October, it imposed restrictions on the production of fake ASIC’s, but did not impose penalties on the manufacture or sale of real ASIC’s.
China’s internet censorship regime has been in place since November 2016, and it was criticised by many in the industry as being ineffective and expensive.
