On May 3, there will be a major event that may affect the digital currency industry, that is, the recent hot Chia Kia coin will start trading. If its price rises rapidly, then the hard disk mining will be more popular, which will also be a great variable for the hard disk market.

Chia Kia coin is not just released this year, but it has a rising trend in the recent month. Unlike bitcoin and Ethernet coin, it does not require high computing power, but needs large capacity storage space. The larger the capacity of the hard disk, the more likely it is to get rewards. As a result, the hard disk of 8tb or above has sold out rapidly and the price has soared.

What's the impact of Chia? According to the statistics of the last month, the hard disk capacity consumed by Chia Kia was only 120pb,Now it has exceeded 1143pb in one month, exceeding 1zb for the first time,This is several to dozens of times more than the hard disk consumed by the general data center.

Taking an average of 10TB as an example, the total capacity of 1143pb is equivalent to 110000 hard disks,This is only the consumption in the last month. The value of Chia will rise sharply in a day or two, and more people will invest in mining, so the demand will be endless.

Hard disk mines like Chia have also attracted the attention of Western Digital, Seagate and other companies,The CEO of Western Digital also talked about Chia's mining, saying that the current demand is very small, but it is worth noting.

Western Digital has not mentioned whether it will increase production capacity because of Chia's hard disk mining boom. However, judging from its current position, they are already very motivated and can not miss such an opportunity. Once Chia's mining demand rises, hard disk manufacturers will certainly be one of the biggest beneficiaries.
