Innosilicon just came up with two new ASIC miners, one is for Decred (DCR) and the other one is for SiaCoin (SC) joining in with other ASIC manufacturers that have already announced miners for these coins. The Innosilicon D9 DecredMaster ASIC miner is apparently capable of delivering 2.1 TH/s hashrate for mining Decred (DCR) with 900 Watts of power usage. The new Decred ASIC miner is priced at $6800 USD (54.487 LTC or 0.942194 BTC) without a power supply or shipping cost included and should start shipping from 27th April, 2018.

Innosilicon D9 DecredMaster Specifications:
– Hashrate: 2.1 TH/s (+/-8%)
– Power Consumption: 900W (+/-8%, normal mode, at the wall, with 93% efficiency PSU, 25°C temperature )
– Chip Type: D9 DecredMaster ASIC
– Dimensions: Single Tube, 310 mm(L)*130mm(W)*155mm(H)
– Net Weight: 3.6KG
– Operating Temperature: 0°C—85°C (device junction temperature)
– Network Connection: Ethernet

The Innosilicon S11 SiaMaster ASCI miner is apparently designed for Siacoin (SC) mining and should be capable of delivering 3.83 TH/s with a power usage of 1380 Watts. The price of the new Siacoin (SC) ASIC miner is currently set at $3500 USD (28.045 LTC or 0.484953 BTC) without a power supply or shipping cost included and should start shipping from 27th April, 2018 as well.

Innosilicon S11 SiaMaster Specifications:
– Hashrate: 3.83 TH/s (+/-8%)
– Power Consumption: 1380W (+/-8%, normal mode, at the wall, with 93% efficiency PSU, 25°C temperature )
– Chip Type: S11 SiaMaster ASIC
– Dimensions: Single Tube, 290 mm(L)*130mm(W)*155mm(H)
– Net Weight: 3.7KG
– Operating Temperature: 0°C—85°C (device junction temperature)
– Network Connection: Ethernet

A month ago we have shared our negative experience with Giga Watt’s Miner Hosting Services and we just wanted to update you on the topic and still warn you to stay away from their miner sales and hosting services. Our December and January batches of miners that we have paid for back in November last year are still not deployed and not working and up until a few days Giga Watt was still selling new mining hardware for who knows when to be deployed (they have apparently stopped). Our disappointment with their services continues and it will get even worse for sure and they are just delaying and delaying month after month…

The WTT tokens are a bit better, but our disappointment extends there as well. There is still no price-varying real market for renting the tokens (you cannot use the tokens when your miners do not get deployed for months already). You still need to rent out all your tokens and you cannot rent them all even at the lowest price, so you are losing on that as well… no matter how much tokens you get you can rent maximum about 70% at the lowest price or less if you increase the price. Recently the company has risen the prices for electricity with 20% “in favor of the token holders”, but nothing really changes that much, at least your tokens should earn you a bit more. So we would also recommend not to go investing in WTT tokens now.

There are already a few variations available of the CryptoNight algorithm and different coins are using different versions, so it is hard to keep a track of all and use a different miner for the slightly different version. The SRBMiner Cryptonight AMD GPU Miner might help you here as it pretty much supports all of the variations of CryptoNight for now for AMD GPU miners, for example the just forked IPBC that decided to go for Cryptonight UltraHeavy (CN Light Custom v3) instead of the regular V7.

Supported CryptoNight variations:
– Cryptonight
– Cryptonight V7
– Cryptonight Lite
– Cryptonight Lite V7
– Cryptonight Heavy
– Cryptonight UltraHeavy

SRBMiner is a closed source miner and comes with a built-in developer fee of just 0.85%. The run the miner you just need to do some simple tweaking of the config.txt file like setting the intensity (leave it to 0 for auto) and choose the right algorithm, then just set the pools in the pools.txt file (more than 1 pool to have failover support) and run the miner. The miner works on older and newer AMD GPUs, including the latest RX series, but you should not have issues with older GPUs as well.
