ENVION – world’s first self-expanding crypto-infrastructure


The technology that envion has developed represents the next generation of data centers — modular, mobile, flexible, low-maintenance, data-driven and therefore designed for the challenges of the future. The envion team has developed the core technology ranging from circuit boards to middleware to application software layers for the MMU based upon a clear set of development principles and guidelines:

  • Mobility
  • Modularity
  • Cost-efficiency
  • Maintainability
  • Plug‘n‘play
  • Plug‘n‘mine.
  • Expandability
  • Cooling optimization.

The exponential growth of energy consumption in the IT ecosystem is hitting an energy market in transition. The growth of renewable energies in the energy mix is ​​creating imbalances in the grid – an uneven distribution of power in time and space. At certain times and in certain places, there is an abundance of electricity straining the grid to its limits, while scarcity might prevail at other times. These imbalances trigger large fluctuations in spot market energy prices, regulatory responses, and price differences between sectors, regions, time and climate zones.


The smallest element in envion’s ecosystem is the mining worker. This can be an ASIC, a GPU-based mining rig or other possible future mining or cloud-computing engines.
The first generation of the envion MMU contains the envion rig, which is an optimized mining device configured for optimal ROI efficiency. With this goal in mind, we over- or underclock GPUs, test dual-mining strategies, and reduce overhead by the operating
system. New mining configurations based on this hardware can be published to all running instances worldwide by our envion UMC (Unified Mining Cloud) automatically.


All racks are designed to meet the central goal of maximizing the gross energy efficiency of the whole unit. This involves optimizing arrangement of the different components at defined heights inside the racks, allowing for optimal airflow through the air ducts to
reach all components that require cooling.


At envion, their design premise is focused on keeping the device operator’s workload as small as possible, resulting in minimal operational requirements related to manpower and user education. Tasks related to the operation of the decentralized network have been distributed in a simple and sensible way by pursuing a strategy of maximum automation of the hardware. The remaining tasks for on-site personnel are therefore limited to:
a) connecting the power supply,

b) typing in the network authentication keys, and

c) exchanging broken hardware modules upon automatic email notification.


Security of their community members as well as data safety and availability are core values of envion. From the very beginning, they have put significant effort into designing and delivering a secure platform. This starts with a professional software development lifecycle and is complemented by well-organized operational security. However, they do not stop here. Bugs in software do exist and human errors occur.


Envion AG is a Swiss corporation, headquartered in Zug, the so-called “Crypto Valley” of Switzerland, where players like Ethereum Project, Monetas, Bitcoin Swiss and Bancor have laid the foundations for a major blockchain cluster. Their structure is very simple: Shareholders are the founders, nobody else. This in turn means that it does not have to satisfy the hunger of institutional investors for returning can divide the profits of operations with chip holders fairly and transparently. The operations are led by the founding team. In the supervisory board (“Verwaltungsrat”) are co-founders Matthias Woestmann and Cyrill Staeger, who will cope administrative tasks. Looking at the community of token owners in this context as a group of know-how and an impulse provider for envion to operate in sync.
