Antminer E3 is on sale !
Featuring 180mhs for 800w, its stats are similar to a 6 GPU equipment. Of course the main difference is the price – 800$USD. Since it ships mid-July at earliest profitability is again not a certain thing. GPU miners are already proposing ASIC resistant switches to the ETH ecosystem and other similar coins. Buy it on the Bitmain webpagina directly if you voorwaarde.
Latest Miner updates !
With rumored ETH ASICs around the corner, falling prices and rising difficulty many people are losing faith ter mining. Welcome to Crypto is all I have to say
–Nicehash Miner now Two.0.Two.0 Alpha with excavator update
Note that you will have to upgrade all Cryptonight miners – Most coins are switching the algo to CryptoNightV7 due to the ASICs.
DragonMint T1 miner update
DragonMint is taking pre-orders for their miners shipping inbetween the end of March and May. They will have three miners – Blake2b (SIA), Blake256 (Decred) and SHA256 for Bitcoin. The most interesting miner is the T1.
The T1 features a whopping 16Ths for 1600w, which means it is the most efficient miner that is publicly available to buy. It has overt ASICBOOST capabilities (you need to mine on a pool that supports the feature). Ter tegenstelling, Bitmain miners reportedly have covert ASICBOOST. Ter the next few months wij can expect Bitmain to also come out with an updated miner with a much better efficiency and hashrate.
It seems all of those who bought S9s for latest farm builds are going to be feeling the agony of lower prices and higher difficulty for the foreseeable future. The profit bump since the Bitcoin Metselspecie fork is coming to an end.
