The Antbox is the product of Bitmain released in March 2018. It is basically a small mining farm fits into a container. It can hold as many as 324 units of S9 miner. This product saves the trouble of building a mining farm from scratch.
We visited the manufacturer in Shenzhen, in this piece, we will reveal more details about this product.
This is a guide for how to find out the IP address of the miner. There are several ways to get the IP address of your miner:
- Find the IP address in your Router Admin Dashboard
- Use IP Scanning Software
- Use Self IP Report
We will introduce them one by one in this tutorial. We will take bitcoin miner as an example which applies equally to other cryptocurrency miners, such as litecoin miners, dash miners etc.
The Antminer models are most popular cryptocurrency mining devices. And setting-up different Antminer models is pretty much the same. We will present a general tutorial for setting up Antminer models.
We will take S9 as an example to show setting up and troubleshooting which apply equally to other Antminer models.
In this article, we will explain the Miner Status page of Antminers. For setting rigs up, please refer to our tutorial: www.eastshore.xyz/tour/
This tutorial is intended for the INNOSILICON T2 Turbo Bitcoin Miner which is one of the most powerful bitcoin miner of Innosilicon. The hashrate of the T2T is upto 30TH/s while the power consumption is only 2200w.
Bitmain has recently released its firmware for the popular Antminer S9 to enable what is called “overt AsicBoost”. What is AsicBoost? In short, AsicBoost is best described as a “mathematical trick”. Instead of taking a huge amount of computation, miners can use the technique to whittle down their choices of potential hashes that enable them to solve a puzzle and claim bitcoin’s rewards.
In September 2018, cryptocurrency hardware manufacturer Canaan announced a novel product-a mining heater. According to official specifications: the product with the model name A851H, has a hash speed of 14.5TH/S@1450w/h, the efficiency ratio is 100w/T and it integrates 104 A3210M chips of 16nm.
In this review we will show as many details as possible.
This tutorial is meant for the Antminer S17/S17 Pro which is a bitcoin miner manufactured by BITMAIN. The Antminer S17 series bitcoin miner is equipped with Bitmain’s second-generation 7nm chip BM1397. The energy efficiency ratio is as low as 39.5J/T in low power mode. The Antminer S17 series bitcoin miner is Bitmain’s most competitive SHA256 mining machine to date, supporting BTC, BCH and other SHA-256 crypto currencies.
We will take Antminer S17 Pro as an example to show settings which apply equally to Antminer S17.
Many newbies who have just got involved in the blockchain may feel surprised when they are told that “A successful bitcoin transfer needs 6 confirmations.” Why are 6 confirmations are needed? Does it refer to the confirmation of 6 bitcoin mining workers on the network?
Here in the article, we would like to explain the principles in detail.
Bitcoin can only process about 7 transactions per second and such a speed makes it impossible to establish many related applications. So, the sidechain came into being to improve the scalability of bitcoin.
To transform the sidechain from concept to reality, the bitcoin core developers such as Adam Back and Matt Corallo released the white paper Enabling Blockchain Innovations with Pegged Sidechains, which clearly proposed the concept of sidechain and its protocol implementation for the first time.
