6Block can monitor the operating status of thousands of mining machines with its proprietary monitoring system. During the Space Race, 6Block developers have reported dozens of bugs and were highly recognized by the Filecoin developers.

The number of mining machines 6Block has invested is not the largest, but with the help of in-depth optimization of the Filecoin mining software, the efficiency of 6Block mining machines has maintained a significant edge, with P1 completed in1 hour and 51 minutes, P2 completed in less than 10 minutes, and C2 completion in less than 10 minutes.

According to the Filecoin Space Race reward plan, “the top 100 miners globally, as well as the top 50 miners from each continent,” will earn a total of 4 million FIL tokens based on the amount of storage realized by the miners and the network during the competition. Each registered miner ID can include up to 16 miner accounts. In addition, the top 20 miners in network block rewards will win an additional 100,000 FIL token rewards in proportion to the block rewards they receive.

It looks like the Space Race just got a bit more interesting, wouldn’t you say? Happy mining!
