Do you know about mining machines?

Recommended Posts

As a newcomer to the cryptocurrency world, many people are confused about what a mining machine is, and the difference between various types of mining machines!

Today, I will accompany you to talk about the mystery.

The mining machines currently used in the market are divided into ASIC miners, GPU miners, CDN miners and cloud miners, which can be subdivided into the calculation for different coins alone: ASIC miners and CPU miners.

ASIC miner, also called professional miner, is a kind of miner that uses ASIC chip as the core of calculation force, for example: BBZ Raytheon S99 Asic Miner, Ant Miner S9, S9i and so on. The virtual currencies it can mine are BTC/BCC, LTC, DASH and so on.
GPU miners, are miners that use a GPU graphics card as the core of calculation force. There are more virtual currencies that can be mined. In addition to the mainstream ETH/ETC, all other competing coins are basically mined with CPU miners.

Many people may have this question, why only ETH/ETC can't be mined using ASIC miners inside the current mainstream virtual coins, while the other kinds can.

The main reason is caused by the different calculation of ETH and BTC. The higher the calculation force of ETH, the larger the video memory occupation, and the faster the required speed.

The high-speed MC is only private IP of big technology companies like AMD and NV, which means that the design difficulty of ETH miners is much higher than BTC.

The other two are CDN miner and cloud miner. CDN miner is a new type of miner, which looks similar to a router and TV box, he does not mine by contributing calculation forceÔľĆ but by contributing network broadband and storage space, and the performance is not as strong compared to the first two miners mentioned. But in terms of low energy consumption, environmental protection and contribution to society, CDN miner makes more sense. Some of the virtual currencies it can mine are Play Coin, LLT, etc.

The cloud miner, on the other hand, is equivalent to a rental hosting service, where the consumer pays a certain fee, decides what coins to mine, the service provider mines them for you, and then just waits to get paid, in theory for all coins it can mine are.

Do you understand the difference between the various types of miners through this article?

    • US DOLLAR TALKING POINTS: The¬†US Dollar¬†has dropped by as much as 3.3% from the high that was set last Wednesday and many are asking if the¬†USD¬†has topped. Given how aggressively overbought the greenback had become, this retracement looks to be a correction in the trend with no evidence yet of anything larger. However ‚Äď price is approaching some major supports and performance around those levels will be key for determining near-term strategy. Of particular importance is the fact that the US Dollar is a composite of global currencies so the bigger question is when sell-offs in¬†EUR/USD¬†or¬†GBP/USD¬†might return and, in a related item, how will¬†USD/JPY¬†hold up with the pair pegged to the 145 level thought to be the line-in-the-sand for Japan‚Äôs Ministry of Finance?

    • EUR/USD and GBP/USD edge up while USD/JPY falters at ¬•145.00 again A pause in the dollar rally sees USD/JPY stuck below recent highs, but both the euro and sterling have made gains in early trading against the greenback. ¬† ¬†Chris Beauchamp¬†|¬†Chief Market Analyst,¬†London¬†| Publication date:¬†Tuesday 04 October 2022¬† EUR/USD rebound continues After falling to a twenty-year low last month, the euro continues to rebound against the US dollar with¬†EUR/USD. This still looks very much like a counter-trend bounce that sees the price head back to the 50-day simple moving average (SMA), currently $1.1018 and then begins to falter. This would be in line with previous bounces since April, all of which have found it impossible to hold above the 50-day SMA. This move could see the price head back to $1.01. Further targets lie at $1.02 and then $1.0374. Source: ProRealTime GBP/USD recovers $1.13 The¬†GBP/USD¬†continues to defy the doomsters with a recovery above $1.13. Its own counter-trend bounce remains intact, and if previous bounces are any guide there is still some potential for upside, even if it only reaches the 50-day SMA. Like EUR/USD, the pound is still making lower highs and lower lows against the dollar, with the previous peak at $1.176 marking out the initial target for this bounce. Both stochastics and¬†moving average convergence/divergence (MACD)¬†have room to move up to support this move, but selling the rallies still appears to be the approach here for this downtrending market, although it looks like for now there is still a desire to push the pair higher in the short-term. Source: ProRealTime USD/JPY stalls below ¬•145.00 It does look like ¬•145.00 is the ceiling in¬†USD/JPY¬†for the time being ‚Äď repeated attempts to break higher have come to naught, despite the continued strength of the US dollar. Indeed, it is perhaps precisely that we need a pullback in order for the trend to revive. The pair rallied hard from the August-lows, and now sits at some distance from the 50-day SMA (currently ¬•139.15). A pullback towards this level might ‚Äėclear the air‚Äô, create a higher low and provide a springboard for fresh¬†bullish¬†momentum. Source: ProRealTime
