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?

    • The Love Power Ecosystem caught my attention recently, offering a unique blend of DeFi and NFTs. Built on decentralization, it empowers artists to showcase their work and earn through NFTs, fostering a strong community spirit.   What truly sets Love Power apart is its focus on positivity.  Their NFT collection, currently on OpenSea and Rarible, champions themes of love, beauty, and kindness.  The project's community-driven nature, with no VC involvement and proceeds benefiting artists, adds another positive layer.  The recent listing on Bitget with a bullish initial trend is another interesting development.  This project seems like a breath of fresh air in the NFT space. Anyone else out there following Love Power? What are your thoughts on this community-powered art movement?
    • Selling BNB in 2021 just before its remarkable surge and ATH had me wondering what could have been. While regrets ensued, I quickly channelled it to discover another CEX token with similar potential. Same year I got wind of BGB (Bitget native token) and keyed in–ready to launch at that time at mere price of $0.0585. Fast forward today, BGB currently sells around $1.10 slightly below its ATH of $1.48. Analysing BNB and BGB in tandem, I’ve come to understand that it takes quality token utilities for the later to replicate the former’s rally. For instance, the newly launched Bitget PoolX (stake to mine product) has spiked the demand of BGB, being a poplar asset to mine and earn on the platform. Not to mention other existing products with BGB at their core. The consistent trading volume increase of BGB has also been another catalyst, as the demand and supply keeps growing, the price keeps responding accordingly in the upward trajectory. Additionally, it's no secret that investors do look out for sustainability. Just like the trust BNB & Binance commands, BGB market cap and the robust nature of its parent exchange, Bitget, has been another conviction for investors.  Factoring all these, most experts believe BGB has the potential to reach $5 in the nearest future. It remains to be seen though; one thing for sure is– holding BGB has cushioned my regrets from selling BNB prematurely a few years back!

Readers are advised to conduct their own research before investing and only invest what they can afford to lose. The crypto industry rewards patience and is not the quick-rich platform many perceive it to be. Profiting in crypto requires knowledge, strategy, time, and patience. Those seeking quick profits often end up losing their funds. Many cryptocurrencies have experienced significant price surges in recent years. This content focuses on BGB, the native token of the Bitget exchange. Launched on July 26, 2021, at $0.058, the token has seen remarkable growth, increasing over 1500% since its launch and 184% in the past year. The prediction of it reaching $5 in 2024 is based on its impressive utility and appealing tokenomics. Comprehensive details of its use cases can be found in its white paper: https://img.bitgetimg.com/video/BGB-whitepaper-EN.pdf?locale=en BGB has shown incredible growth in the past year, breaking several all-time highs (ATH) and setting new ones. In 2024 alone, BGB has broken its ATH seven times, reaching $1.48 on June 1st, 2024, solidifying its acceptance among investors and traders. Ecosystem developments aimed at rewarding users further enhance its global adoption. Products like PoolX, which rewards stakers with new crypto, have seen huge adoption. Other products like Launchpool, Launchpad, Super Airdrop, and Flexi Savings make holding BGB worthwhile. Bitget's user base expanded from 20 million to 25 million users in 2024 alone, indicating significant growth. As the exchange continues to grow, it's logical that BGB adoption will increase, potentially leading to further price surges. With more use cases emerging, a $5 target seems feasible given the token's performance over the past year. However, remember to do your own research. What do you think?
