Bitmain Launches Low-Cost Special Edition Antminer S9

On Monday, June 17, the Chinese mining rig manufacturer Bitmain Technologies announced the launch of a low-cost miner called the Antminer S9 version SE. The new 16 terahash per second (16TH/s) S9 SE is $350 per unit and the launch celebrates the company’s most popular product, the original S9. Also read: Report Insists ‘Bitcoin Was Not Purpose-Built to First Be a Store of Value’ Special Edition S9 With 16 Terahash per Second Bitmain has launched yet another product for solo miners and large operations, but this particular Antminer is a low-cost mining rig. The company announced the latest Antminer S9 Special Edition (SE) on Monday and the first batch went on sale the following day. The new S9 SE specifications detail that the miner processes the SHA-256 algorithm (BTC and BCH) at 16 terahash per second (16TH/s). The miner takes 1280W from the wall which leads to delivering a power efficiency of 80 joules per terahash (J/TH). “The legacy that forever left its mark in the mining industry — Introducing a Special Edition miner, the Antminer S9 SE which continues that very same legacy,” Bitmain announced on Monday. The S9 SE is selling for $350 per mining rig and in order to prevent hoarding the company has limited order to 10 miners per order. The first batch of rigs is expected to ship between July 21-31 on first-paid-first-ship basis. Of course, U.S. residents will have to pay more than the rest of the world because of the current trade war tariffs initiated by Donald Trump. People shipping miners to the U.S. will pay an additional 2.6% tax and an additional 25% import duty tax. The new S9 SE weighs about 4.5kg and when operating the unit puts out around 76 decibels (dB) of sound which is a touch louder than traditional dB outputs. According to the specifications, there are three hash boards with approximately 180 Bitmain-designed chips. However, the S9 SE documentation does not reveal what type of semiconductors are used with the hash boards. Second Market, Old and Low-Hashrate Mining Rigs Bitmain’s latest low-cost miner release follows the slew of next-generation miners the company released over the last few months. This includes the Bitmain Antminer S17 Pro (53TH/s), S17 (56TH/s), T17 (40TH/s), S15 (28TH/s), T15 (23TH/s), and the S11 (20.5TH/s). The latest S9 SE version is more comparable to the Antminer S9 Hydro (18TH/s), but without the water functionality. Bitcoin Core (BTC) hashrate – June 18, 2019. The low-cost S9 SE comes at a time when mining revenues have been so good that older and low-hashrate devices are profiting. For instance, the 2016 S9 version with 11.5 terahash per second is still profiting by at least $0.75 per day at current prices and at $0.13 per kilowatt-hour (KWh). Coinshare’s latest mining report notes that older S9s are still being sold on the secondary market for “700 or 800 yuan” or “as low as $150 USD.” Even the older Antminer S7s could still be profiting as the June 2019 mining report notes: With Bitcoin prices where they are at the time of writing it is assumed some people have turned at least a few of these units [S7s] back on. Bitcoin Cash (BCH) hashrate – June 18, 2019. Moreover, mining has become extremely competitive over the last few months and both BTC and BCH hash rates have been steadily climbing. For example, according to the analytical data from Charts.Bitcoin.com, there’s a total of 56.5 exahash per second (EH/s) with BTC capturing 54 EH/s while BCH has 2.5 EH/s. The Antminer S9 SE release shows Bitmain is taking a stab at trying to capture buyers looking for older or low-cost machines. With BCH above the $400 price zone per coin and BTC beyond the $9K region, any mining rigs processing 11 TH/s or more are profiting with $0.13 per KWh. Of course, many countries such as China ($0.04 to 0.01 per kWh in Sichuan) and Iran ($0.006 per KWh) have far lower electric costs than $0.13 per KWh which would make even lower hashrate producing models profitable.

Bitmain May Have Sold 100,000 Antminer S9 to Collect Cash

Chinese crypto mining giant Bitmain’s hashrate drop may be a direct result of the selloff of over 100,000 S9 mining machines amid the recent bitcoin rally, according to a local crypto media Odaily. As per the company’s hashrate disclosure updated on May 7, the hashrate of all Bitmain-owned hardware running the SHA265 algorithm (which the bitcoin and bitcoin cash networks are based on) had dropped to 237.29 quadrillion hashes per second (PH/s) from 1692.35PH/s a month ago in March. That marks a notable 86% cutback in the industry giant’s bitcoin mining power. Assuming all the hashrate comes from the company’s most popular mining rig Antminer S9 which delivers a hashrate of 14 tera hashes per second (TH/s), Bitmain may have shut down more than 100,000 S9 which mine for itself. But where this reduced hashrate or the mining rigs generating it has gone? The reply CoinDesk received from a Bitmain spokesperson read that “It is [in the] natural course of the mining business where the hash rate owned by one body at one instant may be owned by someone else at another instant.” The report suggests Bitmain may have sold its hash rate to cloud mining platform BitDeer that uses the company’s latest flagship Antminer models like S15, S17 and S11. People familiar with the matter told Odaily that the selloff of over 100,000 S9 might be the cause of the massive reduction in the company’s hash power. Bitcoin has surged past $5,000 since April after four-month sluggish. “At this very moment, Bitmain posted a large sell order – over 100,000 S9. It’s crazy that the deal was completed in a very short time. The bitcoin rally has instilled great confidence to miners.” A man involved in the deal said. The huge deal even amazed some seasoned miners. “(Mining rigs in) several mining farms have been sold out, together with those second-hand machines, there were also many brand new hardware.” “About 1,000 yuan ($150) per unit,” another industry insider added, “now you have to pay 500 yuan ($75) more as they bid the price a little up. Offering such a low price, Bitmain must be in need for cash.” As the company has rolled out more powerful hardware, it’s time to phase out their old miners to the second-hand markets. If Bitmain did sell off over 100,000 units of S9 miners, it would pocket in more than 100 million yuan (roughly $15 million), in which way, inventory was reduced and meanwhile cash flow was increased.

Bitmain Has Deployed 90,000 ASICs Antminer S9 For The Upcoming Bitcoin Cash Hard Fork

Bitmain Rushes to Deploy 90,000 Antminer S9 Miners in Xinjiang as Bitcoin Cash Hard Fork Looms

With the Bitcoin Cash(BCH)hard fork 7 days way, the two opposing camps—Bitcoin ABC and nChain—are moving forward with their plans. Bitmain, the world’s biggest maker of cryptocurrency hardware and the loyal proponent of Bitcoin ABC, is expediting the deployment of roughly 90,000 Antminer S9 miners in China’s far-western region of Xinjiang, to gain upper hand in the upcoming ‘computing power war’, local news outlet DeepChain reported on Wednesday. Yu Hao, a mining farm operator in Xinjiang, told DeepChain that Bitmain’s Antpool has talked to nearly all mining farms in the region since late October, and convinced them to host nearly 90,000 S9 miners. “ AntPool requested that a single mining farm should host over 5,000 machines,” said Yu. But in fact, only a few mining farms can satisfy their demand. In autumn, coal-abundant regions such as Xinjiang and Inner Mongolia have been home to  crypto mining rigs because hydropower stations in southwest China are unable to supply enough energy for large mining pools. As a major holder of BCH, Bitmain’s initiative is seen as a preparation for the looming BCH hard fork. “Half of its marketing staff have gone to Xinjiang to talk with local mining operators about deploying equipment,” source familiar with the matter said. But the Beijing-based mining  conglomerate refused to comment on this issue.   BCH Hard Fork Looms Different from BCH’s regular network maintenance hard forks twice a year, the upcoming hard fork which is scheduled for November 15 is much more contentious. Bitcoin ABC, an influential BCH client, seeks to remove topological transaction order constraint and to enforce the canonical order of transactions which is expected to significantly improve the scalability performance of the BCH blockchain. Craig S. Wright, the self-proclaimed Satoshi Nakamoto (creator of Bitcoin)and his nChain, on the other side of the debate, have spoken out vehemently against Bitcoin ABC’s proposed upgrade. Denying the partnership, Wright released the altered version of BCH protocols known as Bitcoin-SV (BSV) which highlights a 128MB block size for the network. Given that Wright’s version will not be compatible with the previous proposal, the Nov 15 upgrade is likely to result in the split of Bitcoin Cash into two separate chains and cryptocurrencies. As for now, Bitcoin ABC has garnered support from many large mining poolssuch as BTC.com,AntPool,Btc.top,ViaBTC,Bitcoin.com, accounting for nearly 40% of the total BCH hash power, while BSV is backed up by CoinGeek (the largest BCH mining pool), BMG and SBI. As two leading crypto exchanges—Binance and Coinbase— support the hard fork, crypto speculators rush to buy BCH these days in a bid to receive the free BSV assets at a 1:1 ration after the hard fork. The buying spree added a whopping 40% to BCH’s price, surging to $635 on November 7, up from lows of $424 last week. BCH is traded at $594 at the press time, according to coinmarket cap. Some miners in China said they would start mining BSV on November 10 because the warm-up can reduce the difficulty of mining.

Bitmain Actives Controversial ‘AsicBoost’ in Antminer S9, Boost 20% Bitcoin Mining Efficiency

Bitmain, the world’s largest bitcoin mining manufacture has released a firmware for its popular Antminer S9 to enable the “overt AsicBoost” functionality. The controversial code will be able to boost 20 percent hike in efficiency of bitcoin mining. In a recent blog post on Monday, Bitmain explains the new-released firmware will support the overt AsicBoost functionality and brings significant speed boost and cost saving to the bitcoin miners. Notably, although Bitmian is only enabling these mining devices to use AsicBoost at present, the chips were already capable of supporting the function on a hardware level. AsicBoost is a technology implemented in ASIC chips used for crypto mining that originally  patented by CoinTerra CTO Timo Hanke and RSK Chief Scientist Sergio Demián Lerner. It can reduce the amount of work that SHA256 miners must perform to produce a hash, so essentially, it may save some energy in finding a valid block. However, AsicBoost can be implemented either covertly or overtly, and that’s why controversial is so controversial. The covert AsicBoost promotes miners to produce small or empty blocks and makes it difficult to identify miners’ identities. Some Critics accused Bitmain of applying covert AsicBoost prior to the SegWit fork of bitcoin, but Bitmain denied the allegation. According to the blog post, Bitmain has previous released support for AsicBoost Boost in March 2018. In order to give their mining pools users the option to mine using AsicBoost, the firm adds support for it on both BTC.COM and Antpool. Bitmain emphasized that there isn’t and may never be a patent right over AsicBoost, thus miners can choose whether or not to use AsicBoost technology. This time, Bitmain is giving miners a chance to take this advantage without any negative impact on the bitcoin protocol. According to Bitmain, This variant of the “overt AsicBoost” simply uses version bits different from those that other manufacturers have been using. It is equally transparent because it can be seen in the blockheader of boosted blocks. Bitmain also added they are intend to release firmware supporting the same functionality for its Antminer R4, S9i, S9j, T9 and T9+ miners next week.

Bitmain Releases Overt AsicBoost Firmware for Antminer S9

Bitmain has finally released its firmware for the popular Antminer S9 to enable what is called “overt AsicBoost.”In a recent blog post, Bitmain explains their rationale for the firmware release, citing that they originally “decided against activating this mathematical function in mining hardware” due to the “uncertainty surrounding the use of AsicBoost.” Bitmain previously released support for AsicBoost back in March 2018 by adding support for it on their mining pools BTC.com and Antpool. This, however, came after the company noticed blocks being mined on the blockchain using AsicBoost. Bitmain had not released firmware support for its own miners until yesterday’s blog post. Now, Bitmain has enabled AsicBoost on its own hardware, calling it “overt” because of the obvious use of AsicBoost when it is being used by miners (by looking at the blockheader in a block, it is easy to tell if the block was boosted). In one week, Bitmain will also release firmware to enable AsicBoost in its other hardware devices, namely the Antminer R4, S9i, S9j, T9 and T9+. What Is Overt AsicBoost?AsicBoost is a technology implemented in ASIC chips used for mining cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin. When applied to these chips, AsicBoost allows miners to take a “shortcut” to finding a valid block, essentially saving some energy. The technology was originally patented and held by CoinTerra CTO Timo Hanke and RSK Chief Scientist Sergio Demián Lerner. Following the Blockchain Defensive Patent License (BDPL), an agreement to make certain blockchain technologies are shareable with other companies that take part in the agreement, AsicBoost was put in a defensive patent license as part of the process to get rid of all mining patents.Bitmain, however, is not part of the BDPL agreement. “With regard to patent rights, we continue to respect third parties’ IP right and take actions accordingly. Based on legal opinions from various jurisdictions, we believe that there isn’t and may never be a patent right over AsicBoost. Thus, all miners should be entitled to make their own choice on whether to use AsicBoost technology without anybody having an exclusive right over it.” This news comes after there has long been speculation that Bitmain has been using AsicBoost within its own walls, in the form of what’s called covert AsicBoost. The accusations stated that Bitmain covertly, or privately, used the technology to give themselves an advantage over mining hardware that did not utilize AsicBoost. Furthermore, speculations have long circulated claiming that Bitmain’s opposition to the SegWit soft fork upgrade and later support for Bitcoin Cash back in August 2017 was due to a greater incentive: SegWit made it more difficult for covert AsicBoost to be used in the Bitcoin blockchain.

New Bitmain Firmware Launches for “Overt AsicBoost” On Antminer S9 Crypto Mining Devices

New Firmware Launched by Bitmain for “Overt AsicBoost” On Mining Devices China-based Bitmain Technologies Ltd. is the largest designer for ASIC chips in the cryptocurrency industry, primarily focusing on support for Bitcoin mining. In an effort to improve their current model, the AntMiner S9, the company has created new firmware, which was announced on Twitter and on their blog. On Twitter, the post reads: We’ve released new firmware to activate “Overt #AsicBoost” on the #Antminer S9. Firmware for other BM1387-based models coming soon. Learn more about this decision here: https://t.co/hfEfFslyxp Download link: https://t.co/KpkClmWPZk — BITMAIN [Not giving away ETH] (@BITMAINtech) October 22, 2018 The “overt AsicBoost” function is only presently active for the AntMiner S9, but the blog reveals that they “will also release in one week the firmware to activate this functionality in other BM1387-based models.” The other applicable models will include the AntMiner R4, S9i, S9j, T9 and T9+. With the new firmware, the mining chips will have a stronger long-term network, though the coding used is fairly controversial. Originally, the company had not planned to activate the firmware within their own mining hardware, based on “the legal uncertainty surrounding the use of AsicBoost.” The company explained: “As an organization, we didn’t want to violate patent laws or act in any way that was untoward. Instead, we continued to focus our efforts on R&D and building the industry’s most efficient mining chips. It’s worth noting, as outlined in an April 2017 blog post, our ASIC chip BM1387 has the capability built into the chip technology.” However, now, the company is offering the firmware as a “boost” for miners that “have the capability to support this function a choice to avail this advantage without any negative impact on the Bitcoin protocol.” The version available from Bitmain is more of a combination of the firmware that other manufacturers of mining chips and devices have been using. As far as patent rights, Bitmain believes there isn’t any current issue with AsicBoost from a legal aspect. In fact, they note in the blog: “Based on legal opinions from various jurisdictions, we believe that there isn’t and may never be a patent right over AsicBoost. Thus, all miners should be entitled to make their own choice on whether to use AsicBoost technology without anybody having an exclusive right over it.” Bitmain has certain priorities for what they aim to offer miners. They strive to offer the “best mining technology in the industry,” which is exactly what’s made them rise to the top. The blog notes that there are “two main objectives” that the activation of the firmware allows them to do. Those objectives are “future objectiveness” and “stronger network.” Daniel Johnson, the director of Blockchain Technologies for Advania Data Centers, replied to the announcement on Twitter. He commented: I haven't tested this yet but we'll probably see a bump in #BTC difficulty as a result. Very interesting that this is happening just after @braiins_systems announced they would enable #AsicBoost in their firmware soon. #Mining https://t.co/lvrLOMoRfr — Daniel Jonsson (@dfjonsson) October 22, 2018 Right now, the new firmware is available to be downloaded here.

The firm announced the development publicly the following morning on their website. We’ve released new firmware to activate “Overt #AsicBoost” on the #Antminer S9. Firmware for other BM1387-based models coming soon. Learn more about this decision here: https://t.co/hfEfFslyxp Download link: https://t.co/KpkClmWPZk — BITMAIN [Not giving away ETH] (@BITMAINtech) October 22, 2018 Headquartered in Beijing, Bitmain is presently the world’s leading manufacturer of cryptocurrency miners, particularly miners underpinned by ASIC chips. ASICs, or application specific integrated circuits, are specialized chips that, in the context of Bitcoin, are deployed to compute the hashes of new blocks. Overt ASICBoost is an algorithmic optimization that increases computational efficiency further. The functionality, which was in-built in all of Bitmain’s rigs that rely on their BM1387 ASIC chip, has now been unlocked in the Antminer S9. Bitmain said they’d be releasing similar firmware for the S9i, S9j, R4, T9, and T9+ Antminers in “one week.” More efficiency means better odds of winning a block. The firm had waited until now to release the firmware over the previously ambiguous intellectual property situation surrounding Overt ASICBoost. “Based on legal opinions from various jurisdictions, we believe that there isn’t and may never be a patent right over AsicBoost,” Bitmain wrote today, October 22nd. “Thus, all miners should be entitled to make their own choice on whether to use AsicBoost technology without anybody having an exclusive right over it.” Eyes on the Horizon At the World Digital Mining Summit in September 2018, Bitmain co-founder and chief operating officer Jihan Wu surprised the audience by announcing the BM1391, the company’s next-gen ASIC chip. In lab testing, the firm’s engineers found that the BM1391’s power efficiency could go down as far as 42 J/TH. Also in September came Bitmain’s formal application for an initial public offering on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange. In the filing, the manufacturing power reported revenues of $2.85 billion USD through the first half of 2018. Bitmain will look to keep up the pace of its profitability and developments in the months and years ahead, even as others in the space are working to box them out. What’s your take?

Bitmain is Suffering from the 27.6% US Tariffs on Their Antminer S9

As the 2018 China-United States trade war has entered a red-hot stage, the Chinese cryptocurrency mining giant Bitmain is facing new tariffs of its overseas markets since August 23. According to the South China Morning Post, Bitmain would become the most exposed among Chinese mining hardware manufacturer to US barriers. Other mining giants that have their overseas business heading to the US, for example, Cannaan and Ebang International have been influenced by the new US tariffs as well. Their IPO plans also encounter obstacles due to this issue. Bitmain’s Antminer S9 were previously classified as “data processing machine” with zero tariffs. However, the office of the United States Trade Representative has categorised Antminer S9 as the “electrical machinery apparatus” which is subject to 2.6% tariff in this June. At present, Chinese mining hardware makers are facing the 27.6 per cent tariffs of their US exports as Chinese goods are all subject to the additional 25% tariffs which took effect in August. It would be a hard time for Bitmain as over 50% of its revenue is from overseas market according to Bitmain’s public financial statement. Meanwhile, Canaan and Ebang International reported their overseas sales contributed to 8.5% and 3.8% of their total revenue in 2017 respectively. It was also reported that, Bitmain’s Antminer S9 accounted for over half of the company’s $2.5 billion revenue in 2017. The US tariffs would make the Chinese mining equipments less competitive in the global mining hardware market. In the IPO financial statement, Bitmain has indicated that their financial situation could be impacted by economic and political conditions. This time, the significant change in the US tariffs could be seen as one of those issues. In addition, Bitmain is also under high pressures of producing more advanced chips to keep its dominance in the mining world while its rivals are rolling out miners that are faster and more efficient than its Antminer S9.

Bitcoin Struggles As BAT And ETC Lead The Charge

The cryptocurrency market has somewhat stabilized, presenting a predominantly green landscape as Bitcoin struggles to stay above the psychological $10,000 marker.   Cryptocurrency Market Situation. Source: Coin360   Sentiment for Bitcoin has seen a moderate improvement towards a strongly neutral outlook.   Bitcoin Sentiment Chart by theTIE.io   Despite this overall lukewarm performance, proponents of Bitcoin’s store of value potential have reason to rejoice today. According to a report by Digital Asset Data, BTC is increasingly gaining correlation with the broader asset markets – positively with gold, and negatively with the stock market. With a recession looming on the global economy, Bitcoin could fulfill the role of a “safe haven asset,” to which investors flock during uncertain economic times. Altcoins see recovery with ETC and BAT leading The rest of the cryptocurrency market is seeing strong corrections from yesterday’s fall, with two strong outliers making significant gains. Basic Attention Token is strongly reacting to its new listing on Kraken, a popular exchange part of Weiss Ratings’ Real 10 index of platforms reporting true volume. BAT has gained more than 15% on yesterday’s price, while curiously its partner-in-listing WAVES has registered a much more modest 4%. The stark difference can be explained by the contribution of other fundamental drivers, with BAT recently launching the much-anticipated online tipping feature in its browser.   BAT Recent Price Trend. Source: CoinMarketCap   The other outlier is none other than Ethereum Classic, which after an against-the-grain rally on Tuesday has continued today with a 14.6% gain. The total 7-day performance is a solid +21%, by far the highest in the top-50. As before, it’s difficult to give a meaningful explanation of the rally. The upcoming ETC Atlantis hard fork is scheduled in about 22 days, too far ahead to justify any price action, though the final confirmation was released on Monday. The run is likely to be due to a combination of factors, including possible whales entering ETC positions. The rest of the altcoin market is seeing moderate recoveries, with IOTA, TRON and Cardano gaining 8%, 6.32% and 6.42% respectively as the rest average on 3-4%.   The post Bitcoin Struggles As BAT And ETC Lead The Charge appeared first on Crypto Briefing.

Casa Unveiled Node Monitor Service to Leapfrog Bitcoin Network Health

Coinspeaker Casa Unveiled Node Monitor Service to Leapfrog Bitcoin Network HealthA famous crypto startup firm recognized as Casa that offers primary management service, and Bitcoin node machine has launched a node monitor as well as accompanying reward program to develop Bitcoin network health.The firm revealed the latest innovation in an official website article on Aug. 21. Per the announcement, the node monitor known as Node Heartbeats depends on creating a brief relationship between the server of Casa plus, an internet synced and Tor-activated node owned by a user. The rewards program enables Casa node subscribers to earn 10,000 SatsBack weekly in exchange for operating 5 Node Heartbeat checks weekly, on separate days.SetBack can reportedly be converted for Bitcoin (BTC) just once per day on Keymaster app for Casa, as long as a consumer has garnered a minimum of 50,000 SatBack points. According to the report, Casa is firmly convinced that it`s hectic for consumers to keep up with the trend on their node`s uptime as well as security. By offering an inducement program to leapfrog node health, the firm reportedly expects to enhance the overall health of the Bitcoin network.How the Node Heartbeat OperatesTo verify that node is online, the company makes a concise link from their server to the users Casa Node. For this to be manageable, the user`s node must be synced, online, and with Tor activated. But with Tor, that indicates the node Heartbeat secures user`s privacy.Speaking of privacy, the Node Heartbeat only utilises the connection code of the consumer-the same code that is already existing in explorers and that which the consumer release to others who are willing to launch a channel with them. Sats App automatically submits the code for the users when they send a Heatbeat to saves them from the agony of looking it up.Guess Who Is The Latest Casa Investor?Charlie Lee, Litecoin (LTC) founder revealed just three days ago that he has heavily invested in Casa. He went ahead to praise Casa for spearheading BTC acceptance, indicating:“I have the same feeling about Casa today as I had about Coinbase when I joined in 2013 as the 3rd hire. Casa is making Bitcoin easy to use, and that is extremely important for this space. Looking forward to great things!”New Node Monitor by Lightning LabsAs initially reported by Cointelegraph that the designer of the high-speed transaction protocol Lightning Network, Lightning Labs recently unveiled an alpha version of a node monitor. The invented device, called Indmon, allegedly enables nodes operators to supervise node functions in real-time.
