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 force, 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?

    • Bitcoin: Anticipated target lies within the 58-60 range before an impending correction. The upward trajectory is displaying signs of softening, prompting short-term traders to elevate their stop-loss levels. Bond Yields: The 10-year yields are poised to conclude wave v) of C of (B). This development is pivotal as it will uphold the strength of the Dollar DXY. Consequently, positions in gold or silver should be refrained from until yields and the Dollar reach their peaks. China's Influence: An intriguing facet of the market landscape revolves around China. I've been meticulously observing a substantial Elliott Wave Triangle pattern dating back to 2008, which now seems to have reached its culmination. This event is forecasted to bolster base metal prices, particularly once the Dollar and yields reach their zeniths. Crude Oil: Progressing steadily on its upward trajectory, crude oil is set for further ascension. Natural Gas: The recent uptick in natural gas prices is construed as a corrective rally, indicative of an impending shorting opportunity in the near future.

    • The emergence of ICO and NFTs ushered in tokens as speculative assets. These were really attached with no use-cases beyond defi and collectibles. The next wave of tokenization seeks to bring forth experiences and token applications. These are set to be programmable and filled with user centric integration points. Smart tokens are set to usher in digital transformation, by bringing a paradigm shift from websites, to apps and to tokens. Tokenized services are set to transform user experience by rendering services where and when a consumer needs them. The core intent of the smart layer network is to bring real life use-cases to Web3, the project’s team firmly believes that, by infusing useable features into Web3 it will undoubtedly usher it mainstream. Critically looking at Smart Layer would expose that, after carefully and critically analyzing the existence of different token models, it is found that, there is truly no worthwhile use-case, thus the project seeks to curb the conundrum. In a bid to get a grasp of what smart tokens are, view it through the lens of how websites firstly started rendering digital services, then slowly evolving to apps. With Smart Layer, the focus is to empower tokens to do what websites and apps had hitherto done. The erstwhile services offered are set to be tokenized thus allowing them to be delivered when and where the consumer needs them and without requiring direct integrations. The Smart Layer Network native token $SLN is slated to be listed on bitget upon the satisfaction of certain criterion and prerequisite, deposit is however is currently opened. By depositing it on the CEX, the listing will be enabled and the token cast into further spotlight.
