ASIC miners are designed from the ground up to perform the calculations required by a specific cryptographic hash algorithm used by an individual or handful of cryptocurrencies. Because of this single focus, they’re incredibly efficient, powerful — offering a high “hashrate” — and energy-efficient, using far less power than a mining rig with eight graphics cards might do for the same task. This combination of performance and low-power usage makes them much more economical to run than more general-purpose hardware.
Antminers are specialized computers that mine cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and altcoins like Etherium, Monero, Zcash, and Litecoin. These machines can be costly but generate large profits in their use for mining. They work the same way as standard PCs or servers to stay calm when working at total capacity. An Antminer refers to a brand name for ASIC hardware. Therefore, an Antminer is a Bitcoin mining hardware. Several Antminers exist in the market starting with the ANTMINER S1 with a speed of 180GH/s to the latest Antminer S9 with a speed of 13.5 TH/S.
Whatsminer is a ASIC based Plug & Play Bitcoin Mining hardware appliance. It allows you to start mining Bitcoin or Bitcoin Cash immediately and jump into the new digital gold rush.
The innosilicon miner is a device that helps to mine Bitcoin. It consists of the hardware and software. The hardware typically includes, but not limited to: an ASIC or graphics card, a motherboard with CPU and RAM; power supply unit (PSU); cables for connecting devices together; cooling fans for keeping the temperature under control; frame/case with side panels which protects all components from dust, liquids, and physical damage. The software includes mining software such as BFGminer what can be used on the Windows PC platform only.
The ebit miner is the high-hashrate bitcoin miner released by Ebang Communication Co.,Ltd, a NEEQ-listed company in Zhejiang Province, China. The earliest model of this series of miners was released in 2016 with self-developed bitcoin mining chips.
AvalonMiner is a heavy-duty mining machine, demonstrated by its four integrated fans, which ramp up to a very uncomfortable noise at 75dB. This is considered very loud traffic noise, so be prepared to have a dedicated mining space with noise isolation on the door. Nonetheless, it boasts high efficiency at 38J/TH.
Aladdin miner is the new Bitcoin miner from the Aladdin Manufacturer Company. The L2 30 TH is what has made the manufacturer gain recognition from Bitcoin miners. From the day of release, the miner is set to offer a highly profitable mining experience. The market data indicates that the miner will offer a profit ratio of 36 percent.
Mining containers offer the ultimate flexibility along with all the correct environmental elements to keep your miners cool and up and running. Mining containers are equipped with start of the art cooling, networking, and fire suppression systems. In today’s fast-paced Crypto market, there are many container options available. First, the host company provides the container, and you supply the miners. Second, the client purchases the container and the host provides the power, land, and Internet connection. Third, the host provides the container, land and power, and Internet connection (miners can be provided as an option as well).
Air-cooled mining is the traditional and simple method of managing the heating and cooling of one's mining rigs with ventilation fans and ordinary, atmospheric air. Immersion cooling can reduce the death rate of one’s mining rigs. Immersion cooling also allows for easier overclocking of the ASIC, a practice that involves increasing the terahashes per second (TH/s) of the mining rig. Another advantage to immersion-cooled mining is the elimination of air particulate build-up on the mining chips, which degrades mining rig performance over time if not regularly cleaned. As particulate builds upon the chip surface, the chip is increasingly unable to efficiently radiate heat and sustain the operation.
The advantages of the water-cooled mining container over air cooling include water's higher specific heat capacity, density, and thermal conductivity. This allows water to transmit heat over greater distances with much less volumetric flow and reduced temperature difference. The container guarantees noise and dust reduction and a safe hash rate increase.
