We finally got our hands on Bitmain’s Z9 Mini. We test the noise, hashrates stock, hashrates overclocked, radiation, and inspect for dust.
No comments on the nips. I keep my studio like a meat locker.

hello the technicals. can you share your firmware on your z9 mini and make a video on how to upgrade firmware coz bitmain the z9 i recieve today its just balance on frequency. this is on bitmain site service.bitmain.com/support/download?product=Antminer%20Z9 add on i know you still in vegas have fun
I got my 2nd batch Z9 mini and I am not able to change the frequency. Only option I have is 'Balanced'. Anyone experiencing the same or does know how to be able to get the unlocked function?
With these efficiency numbers, I hate to say it but ASICs like this will run the backbone of the networks. And pricing an ASIC that performs as well as 23 GTX 1070s with the usage of a couple of high wattage lightbulbs actually SUPPORTS the average user buying in to ASIC. It supports decentralization in a way because they are affordable to the average joe.
Great video thank you. I have a question actually. Do you think it's still worth to buy a Z9 mini considering that the hash rate difficulty will probably increase considerably in the coming weeks? (and also if you consider some rumors on hard fork of Zec ?). Thank you in advance.
Sorry you feel that way. I guess you missed the part where I talk about it being harrowing and the fact I sold it off quickly because i'm a GPU guy, along with my videos mentioning ProgPow and supporting coins that pledge to fork away from ASIC control. Or, did you see the title and knee-jerk leave a edgy comment? I'm thinking the latter. Have a good life.
No point going agains asics. Lets look at history. Btc started with cpu then gpu then fpga then asics. Fpga beats gpu but is not for the ordinary people while asics are cheaper. Anyway point im saying is people says bitmain controls the production of asics yes thats 80% market share. And is that any different with nvidia and intel. All gpu mineable coins will soon be dominated by fpga miners but thats a few people who can eun those and most people wont even share theyr bitstreams or those thats gonna release theyr bitstreams are gonna charge a hefty dev fee so evwrybody runs that bitstream and they get 100% market share of bitstream and fpga manufacturers are few so how is that any different with bitmain because sooner or later those fpfa manufacturers will wise up and mine also. So if we have bitmain as the dominant force in asics fpga will also have 1 dominant manufacturer. Btw bitmain already losing the sha256 asics because of the japanese company that also made a sha256 asic. Can buy from them 2k usd 24ths around 1800watts they will get better so what if they dethrone bitmain in the future but anyway forking because avoiding asics wont avoid fpga. Those fpga miners are just silent and lauging at us gpu miners
After reading your descriptions about the nips you got a smile across my face. I think you should give them a rub like the South Park Verizon sketch except for Bitmain. "OOOoooo I'm Jihan Wu. What are you gonna do? Buy it from the other mining company" *rubs nips!
Rune Alexander Laursen hey im running mine at 700 - 750 but at the top end my temps are hitting 68 at 80% fan speed any higher and my missis starts going nuts about the noise. What temps are you getting and what speed you got your fans on?
As much as I prefer GPU mining for the flexibility of switching alogorithms and resale, I have to marvel at the Z9 mini - I am getting 11.25 K/Sols on the antminer dashboard and about the same is showing on the pool with no Overclock and at 262 Watts at the wall. Will leave it a couple of days to run in and try overclocking in a couple of days.
Not sure if you are unaware or just misspoke but I'm pretty sure when it was first reported it wasn't 10k sols and 300w. I thought they were semi-ambiguous about the details because they were afraid all the coins would fork before it was released. I could be wrong can someone else verify this I tried looking it up and couldn't find anything.
Edit: I thought either the sols were less than 10k at first or the wattage was higher.
Firefox, it's not the perfect replacement, but the only one that has enough plug ins and add ons. Brave and Torch are nice contenders (both based on Firefox). Incognito mode is useless, similar to FB Messanger's "secret conversation". If you want privacy, Firefox, use DuckDuckGo for searching, and their plug in (tracker blocking), uBlock Origin, and try replacing Gmail with some PGP email service (Enigmail and ProtonMail). Youtube is unreplaceable, but we'll have a popular decentralized video streaming service soon. DTube is the main contender...
What do you think about the hard fork rumors? I feel like it will be worst then the x3 since the only coins that don t fork are komodo and maybe Zcash so the difficulty will go to the moon since everybody will mine them.
I just dont understand how people can say gpu mining is decentralized when it costs so much more and requires more knowledge. I had 2000 bucks to put in to mining. I got 2 asics instead of a 4 gpu mining rog that would take forever to roi. Asics can be adopted in mass scale. Gpu mining cannot
GPU is only AMD or NVIDIA... who am i kidding, it's 90% NVIDIA.... compared to asics which have baikal, bitmain, halong and now even Samsung coming in to play.. feels more decentralised with several sources of component makers and more energy efficient.. better for the environment too.
Well 1st its more than a dollar a day. Closer to 5 or 6 in this down market where i am. And im talking about tge future. Yes the s9i isnt consumer friendly but the r4 will be and they will only get more efficient. And just cause u r using gpu for heat doesnt mean anyone else who isnt a dedicated miner would. The average person and newbie will look at future asics and say o look a quoet efficient miner and its only 1000 bucks and pays itself off. And they are making miners that actually sit on the wall and act as a wall heater. Gpu is no where close to that. No one wants to hang gpu's off a rack to heat their house let alone pay 4000 to 8000 dollars to make any real money. Its a waste of time. Add in the fact that they would have to switch coins every day pretty much to stay profitable. Gpu mining WILL NOT bring new people into crypto and mining. ASICs will.
"saving power"...Bitman S9+ consumes 1300 watts and makes less then 1$ and you can use them in home because they are loud as airplane engine ..other makers are even worster ..also my GPUs heat my house in winter and and almost totally silent.
Most people CAN NOT BUY ASIC..they sall it in batches ..Bitman sold only 1000 units in first batch for equicash and u could buy 100 off them ..so maybe 200 people in whole world could buy them..and next batch in september or 3 months from now...in mean time ASIC manufacture mine like crazu..unknown pool now has 230 mh/s 40% off Zcash hash rate and you can bet its Bitmain or Inosilicon...and you can buy GPU anuwhere.
I would be for ASIC If Bitmain and other who sell it dont mine for them self..but they mine like crazu and almost never sold you best they have..always generation behind and keep best for them to mine.
I know most people cant run and afford a farm of asics. But they can afford one or two of them. Thats my point. For people to want to mine there has to be some kind of incentive. And with gpu's the payout for a single card isnt enough for people to want to mine or learn how. But an asic is plug and play easy to understand and use. On top of that with the r4 coming out it can be used anywhere in the house and wont kill your ears. They have even begun making miners that are used as wall heaters. Ones that generate heat to your house while mining. That wont happen with gpu's. In the long term asics will be unnecessary cause mining will be built in to common machines and tech we use everyday making it so everyone using a heater or laptop or pc or gaming console etc. Will be helping support the networks. Also zcash is playing it smart. They were adopted by Gemini and will prob see institutional investors soon. They dont want to chance a 51% attack or any other network attack when they could allow asics making difficulty impossible to ruin their coin and network. They are thinking long term as should we all. Asics will become the norm. We have to stop fighting it and realize how much power we save the planet and how much we secure the network of these coins with promising futures.
Only few can adopt ASIC in massive scale...you cant buy now this ASIC at all...second batch you can get in september...and that 3 months from now...
And other hand i saw guy mining with ASIC for more then a month with 50 million sols on one address ...he was getting 450 ZEC every day which is 2.5 MILLION $ a month.
ZEC betrayed GPU miners ..they sad in initial post ( i still have it ) that they are ASIC resistance and that they will change Algo if ASIC came out...but when it happen they changed stance because they saw $
do you think they shipped the first batch out as a bait and switch? and that is why they are dustless? second batch gets 2 because they are used...….makes It hard to stay in the game with these hitting the shelves. those alt coins are getting harder to bag every day. I think you should keep a different long gun in the background every video!
You can do the math, plus it doesn't matter since it changes so much. I need to make videos with longevity that can (hopefully) be viewed many months from now. This time next year I doubt a Z9 mini will be making more than a D3 currently does.
I remember you talking about fans and how important it is to pull away hot air which I disagree. So let's make it clear once and for all. Is this fan on Z9 pushing cold air inside the box or pulling away hot? I bet it's pushing cold inside. Let me know.
Indeed it's pushing. To be fair, the back end is pretty open and given the size of the box, I'm not sure the concept scales up. Either way, i'm re-doing my whole farm again in closed cases, so we'll find out!
always a pleasure watching your video's. I finally pushed mine to 750 frequency getting 17,000 sols for the last 2 days straight. I had to put a small fan to keep the chip temp below 70c. I hope we get our free one soon. Thanks for all that you do.
There are 3 major pitfalls with reaching consensus around the outcome of an event.
These fully specified, manipulation resistant, and publicly verifiable events form a necessary foundation for sound prediction markets. Without this foundation, prediction markets are subject to confusion, manipulation, and abuse. Though sometimes tricky, many prediction events exist that satisfy all of the criteria listed above. As the world moves forward into the realm of decentralized prediction markets, it will be important to keep in mind the pitfalls associated with many naive prediction events.

Capital Markets Blockchains Are Finally Getting Go-Live Dates.
Assembled in New York this week, a handful were even confident enough to give firm timetables for production. For those tired of blue-sky talk, it was refreshing to hear large-scale financial infrastructure projects discussed openly and frankly, in clear terms of where they are and when we can expect to see things going live.
Underscoring the seriousness of the undertaking, ASX recently produced an 87-page progress report. Roll-out is targeted for late 2020 or early 2021.
In the weeds.
The enormity of such a project may not be obvious to those unfamiliar with the creaky plumbing of the capital markets.
At the completion of phase one, DTCC will have nodes set up internally for every firm that it knows will run one, plus some general nodes that will take care of supporting the transactions and processing for the firms that do not wish to support a node of their own.
For this project, DTCC has taken a multi-vendor approach. Ethereum-inspired startup Axoni is providing the technology, with IBM helping to manage the project, and R3 providing best practice guidance on areas like selecting the right data models.
Luxembourg is the largest fund management hub outside of the U.S. The jurisdiction holds many trillions of dollars worth of assets under management.
The KPMG-led project includes banks like BNP Paribas, Credit Agricole and others, as well as over 400 asset managers. The technology used is ethereum-based Quorum, the popular open-source project run by JP Morgan.
