Baikal Giant-B is a miner model which supports Blake256R14/Blake256R8/Blake2B/Lbry/Pascal mining. All coins based on those algorithms are supported, such as Siacoin, lbryCoin, PascalCoin etc.. It’s 80GH with 300watt for Siacoin mining, which is very competitive. For Blake2B mining, it hits 80GH/s with a power consumption of ONLY 300w.
In this tutorial, we will show you step by step about how to set up the Baikal Giant-B.
This tutorial is intended for the Antminer A3 BLAKE2b ASIC Miner for Siacoin Mining which is a BLAKE2 miner manufactured by BITMAIN. BLAKE2 is a cryptographic hash function faster than MD5, SHA-1, SHA-2, and SHA-3, yet is at least as secure as the latest standard SHA-3. BLAKE2 has been adopted by many projects due to its high speed, security, and simplicity. The Antminer A3 supports all the crypto coins based on the BLAKE2b algorithm, such as Siacoin.
