Bitcoin.org founder worried about Jihan Wu’s disappearance post Bitmain ousting

Trouble began brewing back in November when the Bitcoin Cash community was split between Jihan Wu and Roger Ver’s Bitcoin Cash ABC and …

Jihan Wu, the former CEO of Bitmain, the Bitcoin mining manufacturer, has absconded from social media leaving the cryptocurrency community worried, especially the co-owner of Bitcoin.org and Bitcointalk.org, known by his pseudonym Cobra.

Trouble began brewing back in November when the Bitcoin Cash community was split between Jihan Wu and Roger Ver’s Bitcoin Cash ABC and Craig Wright’s Bitcoin Cash SV. The two factions had a heated dispute, following which the coin hardforked into two new cryptocurrencies, which both currently occupy spots in the top-10 list.

Market forces dipped the prices of cryptos to a yearly low following this split. Bitmain also demoted Jihan Wu from director to supervisor in November and in the following months, rumors regarding the resignation of the co-founders Jihan Wu and Ketuan Zhan began to float.

Both Jihan Wu and Ketuan Zhan have been under fire since the close of last year. Wu was lambasted by not just Bitmain but the cryptocurrency community for backing Bitcoin Cash, which has been on a bearish spree since the hardfork, with Zhan criticized for his poor diversification decisions.

While both Jihan Wu and Ketuan Zhan will still remain a part of the company as stakeholders, Wu will be ousted as Bitmain’s CEO with an appointment imminent. However, since the news of this replacement surfaced, Jihan Wu has retreated from social media, leaving many worried.

Cobra, the co-owner of bitcoin.org and friend of Jihan Wu, voiced his concern about Wu’s “sudden disappearance”, stating:

“Jihan has disappeared off Twitter. I’m the last person he replied too on here before his sudden disappearance. Very worried about him. I can’t even imagine the stress he’s going through right now. As one human being to another, I hope you’re OK bro.”

Some Twitter users are even dwelling on the borders of lewd theories regarding the former Bitmain CEO’s disappearance, with one user stating:

“I could be completely wrong, but my admittedly low-info Westerner understanding of Chinese business culture is, if your large venture fails, there are serious, dangerous personal consequences.”

Bitmain has not been doing very well since the “crypto-winter” set in. The company’s research and development department based in Israel were cut by 50 percent. They downsized their Bitcoin Cash development team.

Furthermore, back in December 2018, Bitmain was served with a lawsuit by United American Corp., on the grounds of hardfork manipulation during the BCH split. Also, in late-November, 2018, miners filed a lawsuit against Bitmain, claiming that the company’s device mined the cryptocurrencies for the benefit on Bitmain rather than the current user.

MorningCore Technology Licenses Flex Logix’s Embedded Field-Programmable Gate Array On …

… is licensing EFLX®4K eFPGA for TSMC’s 12nm FinFET Compact technology (12FFC) process and the EFLX Compiler for programming the eFPGA.

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Jan. 21, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Flex Logix® Technologies, Inc., announced today that MorningCore Technology, a subsidiary of China telecommunications giant Datang, is licensing EFLX®4K eFPGA for TSMC’s 12nm FinFET Compact technology (12FFC) process and the EFLX Compiler for programming the eFPGA. The application involves wireless communications. MorningCore is also licensing additional seats of the EFLX Compiler so some of their customers can program the chip with eFPGA themselves.

eFPGA for Communications Applications

Communications systems today are major users of FPGAs for flexibility and reconfigurability to allow for customization and real-time updating of protocols and algorithms. Flex Logix’s EFLX eFPGA allows systems to be smaller, lighter and lower power by integrating the FPGA into the application specific integrated circuit/system-on-a-chip (ASIC/SoC).

“We are proud to work with MorningCore, who extensively evaluated Flex Logix’s technology,” said Geoff Tate, CEO of Flex Logix. “eFPGA can deliver significant improvements in performance, power and reconfigurability. We see China as being one the largest markets for both our eFPGA and NMAX® neural inferencing technologies.”

The EFLX4K Logic IP core has 4K 4-input-equivalent-LUTs, 632 inputs and 632 outputs and is a complete eFPGA. The EFLX4K DSP IP core replaces about ¼ of the LUTs with 40 multiplier-accumulators for DSP and artificial intelligence (AI) applications. The two EFLX4K cores can be tiled together to make larger arrays to support applications needing more LUTs as required, up to 7×7 with any mix of logic and DSP cores.

The EFLX arrays are programmed using VHDL or Verilog; and the EFLX Compiler takes the output of a synthesis tool such as Synopsys Synplify and does packing, placement, routing, timing and bitstream generation. The bitstream, when loaded into the array, programs it to execute the desired RTL.

About Flex Logix

Flex Logix, founded in March 2014, provides solutions for making flexible chips and accelerating neural network inferencing. Its eFPGA platform enables chips to be flexible to handle changing protocols, standards, algorithms and customer needs and to implement reconfigurable accelerators that speed key workloads 30-100x processors. eFPGA is available for any array size on the most popular process nodes now with increasing customer adoption. Flex Logix’s second product line, NMAX, utilizes its eFPGA and interconnect technology to provide modular, scalable neural inferencing from 1 to >100 TOPS using 1/10th the typical DRAM bandwidth, resulting in much lower system power and cost. Having raised more than $13 million of venture capital, Flex Logix is headquartered in Mountain View, California, and has sales rep offices in China, Europe, Israel, Japan, Taiwan and throughout the USA.
