Just after the announcement of their new DragonMint B29 Blake256 ASIC Miner for Decred (DCR), Halong Mining has also started taking orders for a new DragonMint B52 Blake2b ASIC Miner for Siacoin (SC) or other Blake2b POW coins. The hashrate of the new ASIC miner is cited as 3.83 THS for Siacoin mining at 1380 Watt of power usage, so a serious device in terms of hasrate compared to other alternative options from Bitmain A3 (already available) and Obelisk SC1 (upcoming).

Where the Halong Mining DragonMint B52 Blake2b ASIC Miner is suffering is the price, although almost half of the Decred miner they started selling, the B52 Blake2b ASIC miner is still pricey at $5549 USD. Even when considering that the price includes a power supply and free shipping it is pretty steep for an ASIC miner that can be used for just one cryptocurrency for the moment. Halong Mining should start shipping these new miners by the end of the month, so you can expect a pretty big jump in term of the total network hashrate for mining Siacoin.

For more details on the DragonMint B52 Blake2b ASIC Miner for Siacoin (SC)…

Things around the SiaCoin (SC) ASIC miner market seem to be heating up lately as soon after the new BitMain Antminer A3 Blake (2b) ASIC miner was announced there is a fresh new announcement coming from another new ASIC manufacturer for a Blake2b ASIC Miner. The DragonMint B52 Blake2b ASIC miner was just announced by Halong Mining, a newcomer on the ASIC market that looks promising, but we are yet to see it start delivering any mining hardware.

The device they have announced is supposedly capable of 3.5 THS Blake2b mining hashrate at 1000W -/+8% with 135 ASIC chips, making it probably the most efficient ASIC for SiaCoin (SC) if they manage to deliver what they are promising of course. There are not many details, including price or release date for the device and it seems more of a move to judge the interest by launching a waitlist, but still interesting to see there are possible alternatives popping up. So you might want to keep an eye on the product and join the waitlist to get more details as soon as they become available.
