As Bitmain started shipping the first batch of Antminer E3 this week, the first user reviews came with it. And they are quite favorable – the actual hashrate even exceeded the promised one by 25 MH/s amounting to 205 MH/s. Now E3 has a competitor available in three different models, and the competitor is the Innosilicon A10 ETHMaster. Which of the two is more profitable: Antminer E3 or Innosilicon A10? Is this the end of GPU Ethereum mining? Read more
This article is intended for beginning miners. One way or another every miner ends up on the mining pool at some point. And then it turns out that the pools need to be configured and to do that, one should install special software. 2Miners makes it all easy: there is a Getting Started section for every coin, where you can find all the useful information you need. Let’s take a closer look. Read more
Nowadays you can mine Equihash coins using not only GPU but also ASIC miners. The most popular models are Antminer Z9 by the Chinese manufacturer Bitmain and the newly designed Innosilicon A9 ZMaster. Read more
At the beginning of the last month, hackers attacked ZenCash and took control of the blockchain. The 51% attack occurred over a span of 110 blocks, allowing attackers to spend the equivalent of $550 thousand. Let’s talk about ZEN mining and learn some curious facts about this coin. Read more
June was just a beginning of the forking summer. Bitmain and Innosilicon factories have produced the Equihash ASIC miners and forced the Equihash-based coin developers to think about the future of their project.
At the end of May, Bitcoin Gold was hit by a so-called 51% attack. Hackers took control of the blockchain and managed to spend the same coins twice. As a result, they gained possession of 388,200 BTG. Today we will explain to you how to earn this amount legally thanks to mining. Read more
