Today we’ve received our Baikal Miner ASIC supporting X11, X13, X14, X15, Quark and Qubit algorithms and we can share some photos with you. Our first impressions from the device as well as results from testing and using it will be shared in the next couple of days when we get to play around with it and see how good it will work and if it manages to deliver what is being promised by the manufacturer.

The miner is pretty compact in size and is a little less than 0.5 kilograms in terms of weight. It is well packaged, the build quality is good, though a bit strange in terms of design, and since there is not much weight there should be no trouble with the package, unless of course it gets seriously damaged during transportation. Our package has arrived in good condition and there seems to be no damage to the box that the miner was delivered into.

It is important to know that you will only get the miner itself, there is no manual, power supply or any cables along with it, so the rest you need to provide yourself. There is no need for software as you plug directly the device into your network and control it via web interface. But the power supply is important, you need an adapter capable of outputting 12V at 5A with a 2.5mm barrel size (2.1mm won’t work). You can either use a dedicated power 12V supply or go for an adapter from molex to this type of barrel connector and use a regular computer PSU. You can find an online manual and additional support here. That is it for now, stay tuned for more details very soon.

how did you ordered by steps including shipping and baikal team contact to avoid scam ?
how did you pay ? as btc vary from a second to another ?
what is estimated revenue without cut of electricity bills ?
do you recommend to buy the 600 MH miner ?
please share your experience
thanks

The miner was ordered directly from Baikal Miner, their official website is this one: http://baikalminer.com/

We can confirm that it works well and supports all 6 algorithms (they are similar in what they use), we are going to share more details about the miner, our observations and what we think about profitability and usability in the next few days, so stay tuned for more details…

Need some advice getting into the Mining world. Can you share with me a breakdown on how to mine different coins with a miner such as this one and which coins can you mine with it?

I got one of these miners over a week ago and it does perform as advertised. The speeds seem to be impressive, and in a perfect world you’d think that you had purchased a really powerful miner.

However, given the recent flood of ASIC X11 miners from Baikal and two other manufacturers, I’m seeing disappointing returns. On at least one DASH pool, my 150 MHs was quickly dwarfed by another user who was mining at 65 GHs, leaving me with a smaller award than I had hoped for. In fact, it was almost on par with what I was earning when doing X11 mining on 3 NVIDIA GPUs a year ago.

So while you will see very fast performance from your miner compared to the good ole days of GPU mining, understand that the field is quickly becoming crowded and it will take you awhile to break even on your hardware investment.
