Obelisk Sc1 Slim is one of Obelisk’s second generation crypto miners. It features a custom made ASIC chip applying 28nm technology and is for mining Siacoin. It works with two algorithms Blake2B, Blake2B-Sia, which produces Siacoin, Sia Classic, and Space Cash.
The Obelisk Tech team manufactures the SC1 Slim ASIC device. Founded by several Siacoin development team members, they developed miners for their cryptocurrency, Siacoin, and Decred (and eventually developed a GRIN ASIC miner). Bitmain and Innosilicon were faster in the release of their Antminer A3 and Innosilicon S11 Siacoin miners.
The Obelisk SC1 Slim works with two algorithms, which makes it unique for mining. The algorithms are the Blake 2B and the Blake 2B-Sia that produce the same hash rate. These algorithms also have the same power consumption as 450W. 450W is very low in the industry, and it seems the manufacturers are more interested in home-based miners. Concerning the low power consumption, the electricity cost goes down. With two fans, which help in cooling during the mining process.
The estimated wall output power efficiency (with Obelisk power supply unit, 95% efficiency, 25˚C ambient temperature) is about 0.6 J/GH, which provides a rated voltage of 12V. The power supply input ratings are about 100-264VAC, 50/60Hz, 10A,
a size of 3″ x 8″ x 14.25″, and a net weight of 4.99kg. The device’s size and weight is an added advantage as it is less bulky than most miners and easy to handle.
