The BSHA3 project was apparently revealed last year, however it seems that the original developer of the coin has abandoned his work and a bit earlier this year it has been revived as a community supported project. BSHA3 is apparently the first crypto coin to use the SHA3d algorithm (like SHA3-256, but two iterations each time – in the spirit of Bitcoin’s SHA-256d). Other than the different algorithm the coin follows Bitcoin’s math with 50 BSHA3 coins per block, 10 minute block time and 21 million coins to be ever mined in total. The original chain relied on 2016 block difficulty adjustment as well, though that apparently caused it to get stuck at a point, so the new community fork at block 20418 with the new LWMA 3 difficulty algorithm was made available to fix the problem and restore the network.

There are already a number of mining pools available as well as few small exchanges that have listed the coin, though it seems that currently the mining is being dominated by a single Asian mining pool. There is a miner forked from ccminer for Nvidia GPUs available for the SHA3d algorithm available. Also the algorithm is already available for mining on FPGA devices as well, the HashAltcoin Blackminer F1 series do have support for SHA3d, though that does not bring that much advantage over a high-end GPU mining rig in terms of performance compared to ASICs for example.

Blackminer F1 Mini is a new single-chip FPGA miner from Hashaltcoin that supports the same large number of crypto algorithms as their larger multi-chip Blackmienr F1 and Blackminer F1+ FPGA mining devices. The new Blackminer F1 Mini FPGA miner is a great entry level device that comes with a price of $179 USD and is available for pre-order with delivery time set for May 5, 2019. The the first batch of the F1 mini is only 300 units and it comes with no power supply or heatsink in order to reduce the shipping cost, these you need to provide yourself. You need an ATX power supply (6-pin PCI-E), DC 12V 6A or 12V 8A power supply (50W typical power usage) as well as a pretty standard cooler for Intel LGA115X CPU that should be compatible with the design. We have not tested any hardware from Hashaltcoin yet, though the F1 mini does sound like a nice and affordable FPGA miner to try and experiment with before going for any of their larger products…

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). The invitation code will work for orders of other Blackminer devices as well, regardless if you choose to have the device shipped to you or to have it hosted by HashAltcoin.
