One of the most powerful ASIC based 16nm processing chip bitcoin mining hardware available to the public to buy. The Antminer S9, made by Bitmain, utilizes 189 ASIC BM1387 chips to efficiently mine bitcoin for the astute bitcoin miner that buys this equipment.
The Antminer S9 is compact and sleak, with upgraded designs based upon the prior popular previous version: the Antminer S7.
Except the Antminer S9 is three times as powerful, twice as efficient, and has increased latency-reduction components. In addition, the S9 has been enhanced to be more self-sufficient in handling the heat that a truly effective bitcoin miner inevitably produces. While some actually heat their homes with quite a few of these bitcoin miners tag-teaming together, the aluminum casing and heat-sinks attached to each ASIC chip in the S9 help keep the hardware cool by displacing that heat to the surrounding air.
How to set up Antminer S9
The Antminer S9 is designed with a simple user-interface. Once you access the S9 interface, you simply put in your mining settings. These settings generally consist of your pool address settings and your wallet address. There are most advanced customization settings available, however, you only need the basic to get started immediately.
