Is Intel getting into the cryptocurrency mining market? At next month's International Solid-State Circuits Conference, the chip giant will take part in a session titled "Bonanza Mine: An Ultra-Low-Voltage Energy-Efficient Bitcoin Mining ASIC." Seeking Alpha writes there's speculation that Intel will release a Bitcoin mining ASIC.

There are no further details yet so we can only speculate whether this will be an actual product that will be sold or little more than an interesting research project.
