Antminer E9 Pro Hashrate
Antminer E9 Pro has a hashrate of 3 680 MH/s on Ethash and Etchash algorithms and consumes 2200 W. This is the most powerful and most efficient Bitmain Ethereum miner so far.
The hashrate of this single ASIC is as high as 30 top-range Nvidia 3080Ti graphics cards. The information on the released quantities of this beast was not disclosed by the manufacturer so it is hard to predict if these machines could affect the Ethash/Etchash algorithm mining profitability.
What to Mine on Antminer E9 Pro
It is not possible to mine Ethereum since the “Merge” the so-called switch to Proof-of-Stake. However, there are other coins on the Ethereum algorithm Ethash that are still mined such as Ethereum PoW (ETHW) or Callisto (CLO). There is also a possibility to mine Ethereum Classic which uses the slightly different mining algorithm Etchash.
Let’s enter the ASIC hashrate (3680) into Etchash and Ethash fields on the 2CryptoCalc.com mining calculator. The calc will show the profitability prediction.
Ethereum PoW is now the most profitable coin for this miner. You could get $10.25/day not taking into account the consumed electricity costs. Ethereum Classic and Callisto’s profitability is slightly lower. However, we highly recommend you check the profitability from time to time as it could change depending on the cryptocurrency prices and hashing power participating in the mining of each of the coins.
Choosing the Mining Pool for Antminer E9 Pro
There are not many pools that support Antminer E9 Pro. Currently, only 2Miners supports this ASIC from the top Ethereum Classic pools. 2Miners developers have re-writed and adjusted the pool software in order to support Antminer E9 Pro and successfully tested this machine on Ethereum Classic pool. In terms of hashrate 2Miners is at the top of the ETC mining pools in the World so the pool finds a lot of blocks daily and the miners get consistant rewards.
Another awesome feature available only on 2Miners ETC pool is the possibility to get payouts in Bitcoin. There are no complicated settings. All you need to do is specify your Bitcoin and not Ethereum Classic address in the Antminer settings. The pool will automatically detect you want to receive the payouts in BTC. Currently more than 1 000 miners are using the Bitcoin payouts in the Ethereum Classic pool.
2Miners developers have successfully tested the Antminer E9 Pro in other Ethash pools presented on 2Miners.com: CLO and ETHW. These coins have absolutely no other reliable options to mine but 2Miners. Check the hashrate distribution below.
Antminer E9 Pro Profitability
Let’s check the profit we could generate with this device using the 2CryptoCalc mining calculator. Choose the number of devices you have on the main page of the calc or just go to the special page of E9 Pro.
Currently, you could get $10.83/day mining Ethereum Classic and slightly less on Ethereum PoW ($10.52/day) and Callisto ($10.44/day). However, we recommend you check the calculator regularly as these values could differ. The Most profitable ASICs page could help you compare the E9 Pro profitability with other ASIC miners.
Antminer E9 Pro Settings
Go to the settings tab. You don’t need to change the mining algorithm, no matter if you mine Etchash or Ethash. The correct settings could be always found on the help page of each mining pool: ETC, ETHW, CLO.
Save the settings and ASIC would start. Please wait patiently as it could take up to 30 minutes for Antminer E9 Pro to generate the DAG file and start mining.
How to Setup Antminer E9 Pro for Ethereum Classic Mining
The settings are quite straightforward. You have 3 fields to specify the mining pool and 3 fields to specify the wallet address. We recommend you use the same pool and the same wallet address for all three rows. Check the screenshot above. There are 3 locations available for the ETC pool: Europe, Asia, and the US. Always use the Europe connection by default.
Please find below the basic connection parameters. Remember that you could use not only ETC wallet address but the BTC wallet address as well.

How to Setup Antminer E9 Pro for Ethereum PoW Mining
Sometimes Ethereum PoW is more profitable than Ethereum Classic and you want to mine ETHW instead of ETC. ETHW settings are similar to ETC. There are no complicated modifications. Specify the pool and the wallet address. Please remember that only ETHW address works. BTC payouts are not supported for this coin. For those miners who want to mine to the local/mobile wallet, we highly recommend Metamask. By default, ETHW is not supported but you could add the Ethereum PoW network manually. Check the detailed guide on how to do that. A lot of exchanges support ETHW deposits as well. For example ByBit, OKX, or Kraken.
Here is the basic setup for ETHW mining.

How to Setup Antminer E9 Pro for Callisto Mining
CLO is the smallest Ethash coin available in terms of hashing rate involved. Callisto settings are presented below. Use only the CLO wallet address.
