MAINGEAR Announces Crypto-Mining Capable PCs

STRAIGHT FROM THE DEVS: January 24, 2018  (Kenilworth, NJ) - -MAINGEAR announced today a strategic partnership with Unikrn, a leading esports brand. MAINGEAR will be breaking new ground into crypto mining with co-branded UnikoinGold (UKG) crypto-mining capable PCs — the MAINGEAR ACM Advanced Crypto Miner and MAINGEAR ACM PRO — available later this year.

The new MAINGEAR ACM (Advanced Crypto Miner) is engineered to be the ultimate crypto mining system with a desktop form factor.

Featuring a unique cube-shaped chassis and options for MAINGEAR automotive paint finishes and MARC II full coverage artwork, the MAINGEAR ACM is designed to look as good as it performs. For professional installations, the MAINGEAR ACM PRO will offer additional expansion as well as a rack mountable chassis. Both systems will allow for the mining of Ethereum or Unikrn’s UnikoinGold, and will offer owners exclusive mining pools and rates so they will be able to build their UKG stores at unparalleled efficiencies.

Additionally, starting today, MAINGEAR will begin to accept UnikoinGold as a payment option for their award winning lineup of gaming desktops and notebooks. UnikoinGold is becoming accepted as payment by a growing number of partners, and can currently be earned and used on Unikrn’s platform to win gaming prizes such as peripherals, lifestyle products, gaming skins and more UnikoinGold. All machines will also offer customers an option for an exclusive native link to Unikrn Connekt, which uniquely allows gamers to earn UnikoinGold for playing ranked matches of their favorite games, tracks their stats and performance and more on the Unikrn platform.

MAINGEAR CEO Wallace Santos said, “MAINGEAR has always focused on partnering with the best brands in gaming, from our partnership with RAZER, Intel, AMD, and NVIDIA, and we continued that with our partnership with Unikrn. I strongly believe in the future of crypto, and with Unikrn as the industry's leader in merging crypto, gaming and esports, it’s the perfect fit. With the MAINGEAR ACM and accepting UnikoinGold payments, MAINGEAR is making a strong commitment to crypto a key part of our business going forward.”

Rahul Sood, Unikrn’s CEO, said:

“UnikoinGold is gaining traction as the decentralized token for a growing number of leading gaming and esports brands. UnikoinGold is in the wallets of users from nearly 200 countries with well over 100 million in circulation. It’s traded at many of the world’s best exchanges, and Unikrn continues to push boundaries of what an ERC20 token can do for esports and gaming. On top of this Unikrn is leading gaming tournaments at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, and with the MAINGEAR partnership we plan to use their machines in many future venues.”
