SSD maker Galax is warning users that mining cryptocurrencies that require excessive volume and speed on storage devices will void warranty of its SSDs. The company posted a notice on its Chinese website to warn users about losing their SSDs’ warranty amid a large number of people looking to mine Chia, a new cryptocurrency created by BitTorrent protocol developer Bram Cohen. Unlike commonly known cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin and Ethereum that require powerful processing, Chia demands more storage over processing for its mining.
Without specifically naming Chia, Galax said in the notice that the users of its SSDs would void their warranty if they use them for mining cryptocurrencies resulting in much higher data write volume than the regular usage patterns. The Hong Kong-based company becomes one of the first SSD manufacturers to comment on the emerging impact of cryptocurrencies requiring SSD storage for mining.
Chia is one such cryptocurrency, and while it is yet to start trading, it has attracted people looking to mine cryptocurrencies. A large number of Chia’s potential miners are coming from the Asia Pacific region — most of them from China — who have already stock high-capacity SSDs to mine Chia.
According to a report by DigiTimes, as cited by TechSpot, orders for Adata’s high-capacity SSDs grew to up to 500 percent in April compared to the previous month. China’s memory peripheral manufacturer Jiahe Jinwei also reported that its 1TB and 2TB NVMe SSDs were sold out in the market.
Chia is based on the proof of time and storage mining mechanism that exists as an alternative to the traditional proofs of work, that is used by Bitcoin and Ethereum. It, thus, requires a large amount of storage and faster writing speeds over high-end performance that other cryptocurrency miners often get from premium graphic cards.
Although proofs of time and storage is believed to be a fairer and greener alternative to the existing mechanism in the world of blockchain, the growing interest towards Chia is likely to adversely affect the SSD market as its potential miners have started stocking high-performing SSDs. The increase demand for SSDs — specifically the ones that have terabytes of storage capacity — is likely to put burden on their supplies and eventually push their prices.
That said, growing storage demand for mining Chia may also encourage SSD makers to build mining-specific SSDs over time.

The fresh sentence came after a UK High Court hearing to resolve the £400 million debt payment was postponed without explanation. British sources said on Sunday night that the trial had been delayed at the request of the Iranian Ministry of Defence.
Dominic Raab, the Foreign Secretary, will meet with Antony Blinken, the US secretary of state, tomorrow at the G7 in London, where Iran will be on the agenda.
The United States strongly denied separate Iranian claims on Sunday that a deal involving a US-Iran prisoner swap had been agreed.
Iranian treatment of Nazanin ‘amounts to torture’
It came as Mr Raab said Iran’s treatment of the British-Iranian aid worker amounted to “torture”, the strongest rhetoric from the Government on the case so far.
“I think it amounts to torture the way she’s being treated,” Mr Raab told the BBC’s Andrew Marr programme. He added that there was an “obligation on Iran to release her immediately and without condition”.
He also said it was “very difficult to argue” against claims that she was being held by Iran as a hostage.
“It is clear that she is subjected to a cat and mouse game that the Iranians, or certainly part of the Iranian system, engage with and they try to use her for leverage on the UK,” he said.
Mr Raab went on to stress that her imprisonment was “not solely” related to the arms debt. “We’ve said that debt is something we want to have resolved,” he added.
The dispute over the arms debt dates back to the 1970s, when the Shah of Iran paid the UK £400 million for 1,500 Chieftain tanks. The UK then refused to deliver the tanks after the Shah was toppled in the Islamic Revolution of 1979.
Ben Wallace, the Defence Secretary, said last September that “the Government acknowledges there is a debt to be paid”.
US denies deal to swap prisoners
The United States poured cold water on Iranian claims that Tehran and Washington had agreed to swap four US prisoners for four Iranian prisoners as well as the release of $7 billion in frozen Iranian funds.
Ron Klain, Joe Biden’s chief of staff, told CBS’ Face the Nation that “unfortunately, that report is untrue. There is no agreement to release these four Americans.”
“We’re working very hard to get them released,” Mr Klain said. “We raise this with Iran and our interlocutors all the time, but so far there’s no agreement.”
Jake Sullivan, the US national security adviser, said the US had “not yet reached agreement” with Iran, adding that “there’s still fair distance to travel to close the remaining gaps”.
Tulip Siddiq, the Labour MP who is in close contact with Mrs Zaghari-Ratcliffe’s family, praised Mr Raab for increasing the pressure on Iran.
“I am aware there are news reports circulating about the debt being paid to #FreeNazanin. I have spoken to her family and they have heard nothing confirming any of these rumours,” she wrote on Twitter.
“It was however welcome to hear Dominic Raab refer to her torture this morning on Marr. I hope the Government is doing all it can to get the hostages home.”
