Antminer S9 review


There was a time when anyone could mine Bitcoin using their gaming GPU’s. However, with the addition of new miners and mining farms to the global mining pools, the possibility to mine Bitcoin at home vanished – no GPU could deliver the required Bitcoin hashrate to be profitable.This is why Bitmain, a China-based company developed and released a set of ASICs that are accessible to the casual miner and have a reasonable ROI, allowing common people like you and me to start mining Bitcoin once again.The company is well-known for ASIC miner models such as the Antminer R4 and S7. As the Bitcoin difficulties rise, Bitmain issues new miners to keep up with the demand. Their latest Antminer S9 is the top-notch ASIC miner that uses 16nm chip technology to deliver superior hashrate.There was a lot of talk about the Antminer S9 since it first came out. However, cryptocurrencies are volatile, and in this article I aim to review whether it’s still profitable to mine using the S9. I will also explain how to set it up properly. Let’s get started.source:
