How Node was born

The Process

Designing the shape.

We wanted Node to look a little different from the typical home device, but still elegant enough to fit in any room. Here are some early sketches.

Crafting the mould.

This part was super fun

Selecting the materials.

Node is made of scratch-resistant, anodized aluminum, so if takes a minor tumble, you’ll be ok. It’s lightweight (X lbs), sleek (size), and robust.

Waiting to have life put in them

Everyone loves a little canvas

Full speed ahead.

Production of the first Nodes has already begun. Here are a few snapshots of Node coming to life.

Environmental commitments

We integrate sustainability into the very core of the product. By powering a PoS protocol instead of the traditional PoW, Node is an energy-efficient alternative to an environmentally wasteful industry.

Node is predominantly made of aluminum and canvas, both of which are widely recyclable, and constitute easily removable components. The motherboard is lead-free and can be repurposed. Node opts to be powered by external sources and thus does not contain a battery. Node’s packaging is made entirely out of recycled cardboard and paper – no plastic is used.

I was intrigued with the idea of how incognito chain could provide privacy for any chain or token once implemented right from the start. However what sold me was seeing the effort that went into the physical design of the node alone.

For me it revealed the passion this team has about what they are building and that no detail gets overlooked.

@Kelsomatic thank you for the kind words. Our design team would love you for that. We often asked ourselves this: “Who said mining rigs can’t look “sexy” and elegant?”. Once we first posted the photo for teasing, someone thought it were a bluetooth speaker ;).

You got it. Happy to be a part of this community. I couldn’t have described the rig any better myself. Haha, it would be cool if the node busted out in song while it was earning.

Just got my pNode today. Did a quick photoshoot before setting it up, it’s a beautiful device.
