WE have already covered the Bminer mining software, though lately it wasn’t so interesting with only Equihash and then Ethash support, even the dual-mining option did not help much as there are already moving to the ASIC miner domain. The latest version 9.0.0 of Bminer however adds something new and interesting, we are talking about experimental Bytom (BTM) mining support for Nvidia GPUs and the performance is really good when things work. We are seeing significantly better results with the new Bminer 9.0.0 compared to the already available NebuTech BTMiner On Nvidia GPU Mining Rigs… we are talking 50% faster performance on GTX 1080 Ti. The drawback here however is that since it is still experimental it may not work on all mining pools, but if you are interested in BTM and are mining it, then you should give it a go and see what improvement you can get. We are reminding you that Bminer is a closed source miner available for Linux and Windows and it has a 2% developer fee built in for Bythom (BTM) mining.

Canaan’s Avalon ASIC miners do not seem to be getting much attention unlike Bitmain’s for example, but that doesn’t mean they do not have something new and interesting to show from time to time. Their latest creation Canaan Moose is an integrated Bitcoin ASIC miner solution that offers 156 THS SHA256 hashrate for BTC mining in a single package that is ready to be plugged in and start mining. The miner is based on twelve Avalon 841 that consume a total of 15480 Watts of power and the miner needs three phase power in the from of two IEC 60309 16A power connectors.

Canaan Moose Specifications:
– Hashrate: 156TH/s, -5% ~ +10% : Average 163.2
– Power Consumption: 15480W, +0% ~ +20% @ 13TH/s, 25°C, 93% PSU Efficiency, 12V AC, Wall-Plug
– Power Efficiency: 0.099J / GigaHash Wall-Plug
– Power Connectors: IEC 60309 16A x 2
– Rated Input Voltage: 365 ~ 418V
– Frequency: Smart Speed
– Network Connection: RJ45 Network Connector
– Operating Temperature: -5℃ ~ 30℃
– Air-intake Temperature: -5℃ ~ 30℃
– Dimensions: 890 x 450 x 725 cm
– Net weight: 140kg

The 156 THS Canaan Moose ASIC miner is priced at $9900 USD and comes with everything ready to be used, you just need to plug power and internet and set your mining pool and worker. No need to setup things using 12 separate ASIC miners, everything is ready to go with power supplies, network connectivity and miner control. It even seems to come cheaper than purchasing 12 separate miners, 12 power supplies and a miner controller, so it might be of interest to some larger scale miners as a ready to deploy solution… it is even stackable.

One of the world’s largest crypto cloud mining provider is offering Bitcoin cloud mining contracts again after a few months without the option to buy BTC cloud mining contracts. The new contracts do not seem to be that attractive price wise, even though they are for 5 years duration and will not get cancelled even if they become unable to pay for the maintanance fees for the duration of the contract. The most interesting thing here according to the company is the reduction of the maintenance fee to as low as $0.14 USD per THS per day for all new mining capacities as well as the ability to also mine natively Bitcoin Cash (BCH) with any purchased hashrate. You can easily check if this is a good deal or not for you if you run the numbers in a mining calculator. Unfortunately at the moment no other type of cloud mining hashrate is being offered such as DASH, Ethereum, Litecoin, Monero or Zcash. Do note however that current cloud mining offers are temporarily not available for US customers due.
