Start farming with spare hard drive storage and get rewarded with XCH. Simple to start and easy to scale.
Accessible and Scalable
Farm → Rewards → Repeat
Mine Farm from your home using spare hard drive storage, without the huge electric bill.
Help secure Chia’s decentralized blockchain and get rewarded.
How It Works
Using Chia’s app, plot files are generated with random hashes and transferred to a hard drive, filling up spare storage space.
Plot files are continuously scanned for valid proofs using a lightweight process through Chia’s native app.
Once proofs in the plot files are validated, a farmer creates a block to add to Chia’s blockchain.
You can get rewarded with XCH. Join a pool (farming community) for more frequent reward opportunities.

Farming vs. Mining
Farming does not require large amounts of power consumption when you start or scale, unlike conventional crypto mining.
Reward Yourself and the World
Support and secure a public blockchain built to help solve our world’s challenges.
Less than 1% the energy consumption vs Proof-of-Work models like Bitcoin (BTC)
✅ Low energy bills
✅ Reduces e-waste
✅ Simple to start and scale
For the Greater Good
The Circular Drive Initiative (CDI) is a partnership of global leaders in digital storage, data centers, sustainability, and blockchain collaborating to reduce e-waste. Chia Network has partnered with Seagate, Western Digital, and others.
Re-Certified Drives, Ideal for Chia Farming
Working in partnership with Chia Network, Horizon Technology is providing great prices on orders for re-certified high-capacity Seagate drives.

The next evolution in Blockchain
Secure Like PoW.
Green Like PoS.
We’ve built a more secure and greener consensus model (PoST) combining the best of today’s popular blockchains.
The basis of decentralized networks makes blockchain technology possible.
Server dependence to maintain the network’s operations skyrockets energy demands to unsustainable levels.
Proof of Stake may have lowered energy consumption, but raised security concerns.
Ethereum adopts a Proof of Stake mechanism with many still questioning how secure Proof of Stake really is.
Chia retains the value of blockchain technology by combining the security of Proof of Work and the energy efficiency of Proof of Stake.
