Halong Mining DragonMint T1 Bitcoin Miner Released

DragonMint T1 Bitcoin Miner

A surprising entry into the Bitcoin ASIC miner market.  Word on the street it uses a 10nm hashing chip from Samsung, compared to the Bitmain chip from the TSMC semi-conductor foundry.   At this point in the hardware development curve for ASIC miners supporting SHA-256, Bitmain has come to dominate the market with their S9-series of miners.  When this was announced, many people doubted its authenticity.   I can tell you that at the time of this writing, these are hitting the streets and is confirmed and a real and performing miner in-line with pre-release specifications.   This Bitcoin miner's performance numbers come in at an impressive 16Th/s while only using 1,480 watts of power.   This actually give you more efficiency than the 14Th/s S9 miner.

When you look at the design, it is almost identical to the Antminer S9.   Basically the same size and weight and  setup.   Dragonmint's have three hashing boards and two cooling fans.  The web interface in also Linux based via an onboard controller.   Setup is the the same with these units, mining page for pool credentials and another page for viewing performance.  These units consume about 7.10amps at 208 volts so you can operate two miners for each 20-amp circuit.

In closing, these units definitely fit the bill for the newest generation of capable Bitcoin miners and it will be interesting to see with their sales numbers if we see better models hit the market down the road.
