Here is the JINN website: http://iotanodes.org/jinn/ Nobody knows much about Jinn project except its global scope. The idea is to develop a low energy ternary processor. Everything else remains secret. It's important for IOTA because IOTA uses ternary to compute hashes and so all computation to sign transactions involves ternary operations, which are not ...

JINN is currently under NDA and doesn't release any information about its development. Here are some snippets of what we know about JINN via the developers on Slack: JINN is a low cost (target price: $1) ternary processor which is designed to have a small footprint to be put into any sort of device, including very low power, cheap, and small IoT devices in ...

JINN ternary microprocessor is not created for the desktop, laptop, tablet or smartphone markets. The markets that JINN is aiming for are the blue oceans of the Internet of Things, smart sensors, artificial intelligence, virtual/augmented reality... The efficiency of ternary processors is optimal for these markets. For example, Ternary Neural Networks can ...

The main reason for JINN to be ternary, is that it is based on development of a ternary general purpose processor. I have searched alot on this topic, but the only conclusion I can draw is that they don't want to give up on the ternary idea, or because they think it is cool, but not because of performance reasons. In the ideal theoretical case, when only ...

We don't know too much info on JINN processor and it's not an absolute must for IOTA to function as it's already up and running now. Based on rumors the JINN chip is specifically designed to process the PoW insanely fast using ternary architecture. We really don't know if they might even be incorporated into future Routers/cellphone boards as standards. I ...
