ASIC miners tailored for SHA-256-based cryptocurrencies, in order of profitability, Dec. 11
(Remember, we are looking at toy box miners here … not industrial-scale hardware)
Amid the cryptocurrency market crash, even the newest crypto mining machines are struggling to seal profits for their operators, according to real-time data published by mining profitability data site ASICMinerValue.com (AMV) today, Dec. 11.
AMV is a site that calculates real-time profitability rates for “ASIC” miners, hardware that uses Application-Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) chips, tailored to efficiently mine cryptocurrency based on a specific hashing algorithm. Updated every minute, the site calculates profit yields for specific miners based on current power costs, network difficulty, block rewards, and cryptocurrency prices.
As of press time, the site indicates that among ASIC mining machines geared to mine coins that are based on cryptographic hash function “SHA-256” –– such as Bitcoin (BTC) and Bitcoin Cash (BCH) –– only two are currently making any profit. Both models were released in October 2018, and show $0.58 and $0.21 in daily profits.
BTC stands currently at ~ $3,500
