Hash Altcoin is probably the only user friendly FPGA miner out there that can be used by miners that are not into FPGA mining and the company also offers not only to ship the hardware to you, but also to hast it for you at very reasonable cost ($2.4 per day fixed). The company is currently running a promotion for their top product BlackMiner F1+ that is available at a price of $2450 USD, so if you are interested in giving it a try you might want to check out the offer. The miner has a large number of supported algorithms with new ones being introduced quite often with bst, c11 and bmw512 just recently added in the list of already over 20 supported ones. There is also the option to pay $999 USD upfront and 12 monthly installments of $92 USD each for the rest of the amount (make sure you take advantage of the new user registration coupon they give you and the invite code mentioned here), available only if you want a miner hosted by Hash Altcoins. You can use our invitation code ZLOZLA when ordering a miner from HashAltcoin, should you decide to, in order to get a $100 USD coupon code for your next order (can be used for electricity costs should you decide to get your miner hosted by them).

Profitability wise at the moment the miner earns in between $6 and $10 a day after you deduct electricity costs, though there are times with higher profit as well and we rarely see it dropping below $5 USD. There is a profitability calculator available on the official website that gives you an idea what coins to mine for the best profit at the moment, though you need to do some extra research for some of the listed coins as they may be a really low market cap ones. Also note that there could be some coins using the supported algorithms that are not listed and that may offer even better profit, so you might want to dig a little deeper. If you opt out for miner hosting you should know that even though the web-based miner control panel is pretty good and easy to use still going for mining some new might be a bit challenging at first if it is not available on any of the already listed pools. There are workarounds with the help of MiningRig Rentals for example if it already has support for the specific algorithm there.

Bitmain may not have a stock of their newer 7nm chips for the faster SHA256 ASIC miners, but they apparently have more of the old chips to push new miners, so hence the Antminer S9 SE is born. It is a 16 THS Bitcoin ASIC miner with built-in power supply(?) and a 1280W power consumption (80 J/TH power efficiency). The price of the new Bitmain Antminer S9 SE ASIC miner is set at $351 USD with the first batch to go on sale today scheduled for shipping in 21-31 July, 2019.

Although this may be far from the latest offerings in terms of hashrate, miners like the “new” Antminer S9 SE might be interesting for some people due to their low price and if they can be combined with low priced power it might be a good opportunity. The used market for Antminer S9 ASICs is booming lately due to the price of Bitcoin going up, so we see demand for the new miner for sure. Of course it also depends on the amount of units that Bitmain can deliver…

Efudd’s modified firmware for the Bitmain AntMiner Z series ASIC miners now supports the Bitmain AntMiner Z11 with its latest update to version 2.3, AntMiner Z9 is supported by version 2.2 and for the AntMiner Z9-Mini you need to use the version 2.1d. The modified firmware allows for more advanced overclock including frequency and voltage tuning with voltage controls per hashboard option available. With the modified firmware it is easier to achieve higher performance than with the stock firmware that has limited OC capabilities by Bitmain. According to the developer of the modified firmware 150+ KSol/s (up from the stock 135 KSol/s) should be doable with minimal tuning and further increase to 170-180 KSol/s might be achievable with more power, careful tuning, good cooling and some luck.

Do note that the modified firmware comes with a built-in 3% developer fee, so the miner will be mining for the developer 10 minutes out of every 330 minutes it is operating.
