The Merging
Of Two Worlds

An Inland Northwest Company

Our Beginning


In 2017, KRAMBU set out to fill a gap in the cryptocurrency mining industry. Existing blockchain hardware and data center solutions were not viable long term, and hardware manufacturers were siloed in their thinking and approach to blockchain needs.The state of the industry was that of individual “miners” that did not fit into a cohesive platform with a logical progression; essentially disposable units with no thought toward long term scalability. Mining operations were typically constructed in a homemade fashion using consumer components without regard to quality, longevity, or safety due to the their lower startup cost. This hardware state, along with a lack of expertise from their operators, created an opportunity in the market for KRAMBU.

Problem Solving

KRAMBU set out to build our own equipment from the ground up to solve the issues we saw in the industry. The primary goals for this new hardware platform would be high density, performance, and efficiency, as well as longevity and extensibility. High density would allow us to fit more processing power in any available space, maximizing the miningprofit output, and lowering the marginal cost of production.High performance meant using state-of-the-art components for the fastest processing speeds available.High efficiency meant that our platform would be more energy efficient and more cost competitive long term.Longevity was about quality and sustainability; our goal was to build machines to last 10 years or more, as opposed to the disposable gear in the mining industry that often had an operating life of less than 12 months. Extensibility meant flexibility. As the industry evolves and new types of processors are released, our platform should be able to easily swap out the existing processing cards for the new ones, keeping the rest of the system intact. This would dramatically increase cost savings over the lifetime of a data center. Extensibility would also allow our platform to be put to use in additional computing markets such as artificial intelligence, big data, scientific computing, fintech, and rendering.

Travis Jank

Travis is a founding stockholder of KRAMBU. He has served as KRAMBU’s president since June 2018. Before becoming president, he served as KRAMBU’s Chief Technology Officer from its organization in August 2017. Before participating in KRAMBU’s incorporation, Mr. Jank founded and continues to serve as president of NEXGEN, which manufactures computer systems for the energy market. In 2007, Mr. Jank designed a computer system that set the world record in computer processor clock speed, and since then he has designed and built computers that have broken other performance world records. He has sold products and provided services to Intel, Microsoft, SIEMENS, NVIDIA, AMD, Asus, Swiftech, Micron and others. He frequently gives keynote speeches, chairs technology panels, and product launches. He has made guest appearances on Intel’s EXPERT MODE, RIGWARS as well as HGTV "VIP" (Seasons 4 through 7.) Mr. Jank also has worked with NVIDIA on numerous projects and been featured for his modding, overclocking and supercomputing builds. In 2009 he became aware of cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and contributed to its rapid adoption by simplifying the process of generating and distributing digital currency into the economy. He built the world's fastest cryptocurrency mining systems and operated one of the world’s largest cryptocurrency mining farms from 2010-2012.
