Linzhi Ltd., known as Linzhi, is a semiconductor manufacturer based in Shenzhen, China founded by Chen Min, the co-founder of Canaan Creative who also designed the first Bitcoin Mining ASIC. It produces application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs) for initial use in accelerating Ethereum and Ethereum Classic's ethhash algorithm. The first product is called Lavasnow and is claimed to use 1/8th the electricity compared to the current competitor and computes 1,400 million hashes per second to generate roughly $20 per day.  Lavasnow is set to launch in April of 2019.
Linzhi has spent $4 Million on production of Lavasnow.
