Meaning: ASIC

ASIC means Application Specific Integrated Circuit, is a chip specifically created to execute one task. An example of one such model is an ASIC miner created to ONLY process SHA-256, which is the problem offered by the Bitcoin Blockchain to mine new coins. There are also ASIC’s for scrypt which specifically solves the mathematical code in relation to Altcoins such as Litecoin.

Though, in recent years there has been a good amount of dialogue surrounding the longevity of mining this way and we’ve even seen coins making it so that it’s impossible to mine with an ASIC.
