The Bitmain instructions for the Z9 Mini say to power the control board first before the hash boards. Which is weird because it requires one power supply (no separate power switches) also anything over 85db you’re risking hearing damage. May want some earplugs even for reviews :)
hey VOSK ,, check this thing out ,, it says that it does 1800 mh on ethash ,, and only uses 2200 watts ..
thats more hash than my whole farm at a quarter of electric .. 12 GPU Ethereum Miner Comparision Vs Promax7.2 ETH Miner.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hiw3K9K2zFc
Thanks for the review Vosk. I got my E3 shipment in about a week ago, and have to say I'm disappointed as well - both in the hashrate and their exploitative pricing. I also ran into that issue and got it sorted.
Thanks for the review; passed on 180-190 since my RX580 rig(s) runs 50,000 shares at 240 Mh/s before maintenance, (they tend to drool on themselves), and my GTX 1070'S rig runs 256 Mh/s non stop, (but threw the stickers off the fans). These company's have a dirty business model so I find it difficult to support them with my wallet. So, if one showed up on,my front porch I would take a pick axe to it's control board head and a chain saw to it's daisy chain tail!
I have a GPU miner and an S9 8 gpus. I can tell ya GPU mining is dead. WIth the price of cards if you were to buy a GTX 1070 for 200 bucks today it would take you 400 days to break even. Im just gonna mine my gpus into the ground but I won't be buying any RTX or anymore GPUs. I may grab a z9 mini or something maybe some other asic if a coin has a large group of all asic they wont fork cause who would mine for them. Like BTC isn't gonna fork away from asic. It's a gamble either way.
VoskCoin Yeah, well if you have the extra money at the time, it might be ok. But be sure to be keen enough to get out while the getting is still good. You have to really have to have a good income, but yes, gpu mining is more versatile and you can upgrade at your own pace. Love your channel btw bro, new subscriber. Tails is awesome! I do not see dogs like her everyday. She seems really relaxed and good natured. 👍
tails is looking good! glad she is helping out today! could you see dust on the inside of this asic? just wondering if they are cleaning them up after hashing with them or if they are sending new ones out now
Yo when I run Claymore, new or older versions with my nvidia rig I'm getting NVML: cannot get current temperature, error 15... and it causes the rig to constantly crash, even if I take off all OC... but then if I switch it over to LOKI, it can run fully OC no problem. I'll start running cards one at a time and figure out if it's a HW issue when I have free time, but any ideas from people or Vosk himself in the mean time?
Hi Vosk, I’ve been in this game longer then many. I remember the upset within the community when CPU mining became unprofitable and everyone switched over to GPU’s I remember the same arguments then, do you think this is just the next evolution in mining ?
Personally I got two of these to dip my toe in the water, I’ve had the same problem as you so looks like it’s a common faul.
AS for my previous comment in order to support my claim that ETH Asic and GPU mining rigs are equal:
I build all my rigs
- 6x Saphire Nitro (without +, same as the mining variant but with display ports) RX470 4GB Samsung memory
- MB Asrock G31M-S s.775 with Intel E7300 CPU, 2x 2GB DDR2 RAM and 1x to 2 PCIE extender and 1x to 4 PCIE extender cards so 6GPUS this is the max for s775 boards
- HiveOS from Sandisk 16GB USB drive
- 1200w HP Server PSU, and PICO ATX 150w that gets 12v to ATX
- wooden frame
So my rigs come for cheep : without the GPUs it costs me 220usd to build and each RX470 4G is about 200usd with the current price
So 177 Mh getting 810w on the wall ( 220 volt EURO socket ) costs 1440USD with shipping fees and taxes and so on, the E3 comes to 1800-2000USD with shipping tax and so on depending on your location and customs tax
keep up the good job Vosk, you have the best cripto youtube channel, about the forking of ETH there is no need of that, well yes ASICS are a pest but ETH ASICS are just a mining rig in a smaller form factor super optimized for low power consumption but yet its equal to a good GPU mining rig, price wise the problem is in AMD and Nvidia because they are pushing GPU Prices up and we all suffer from that but now when ASIC companies get onto them they will have to lower GPU prices and make more efficient carts other wise we will start buying ETH ASICs and they will lose all their Miners Market Share, so I dont think there is a think to worry about, Besides Bigger ETH ASIC means more Hashing boards meaning more cost for them because at the end of the day RAM price is the same for ALL of them and Current Asics they all have just 4GB RAM for Hashboard so when Dag goes over that they are useles and have no resale value, GPUs on the other hand will sell for a decent cash to a gamer in need or we could start building Gaming Rigs
It is not worth to argue with someone who havent even tried and yet just watched and red here and there and is talking GPU mining is death.
You dont know the FPGA guy you watched his review here on youtube, read my post down below, Here all we talk about is ETH mining, for 1000$ you can buy Z9 mini and still beat a 10x 1080ti rig on ZEN or Zcash, but ASICs on ETH is different story,
I dont say ASICs arent here to stay, but when you get one it is good just for one algo and when that algo gets changed you need to buy another ASIC so the old one goes to the trash, with GPUs you just mine what ever algo is profitable at the given moment, and when youre done mining with them you sell them as a gaming GPUs and thats all it is.
Recap: Start mining first see how it goes and then give comments, most regular miners like my self mine with GPUs as we dont have the Cash to buy ASICS and FPGAs, we just buy GPUs and build rigs
Hristo Kirov I know someone with a single xhilinix FPGA that's is giving off the performance of 10 gtx 1080tis with way less power draw!
2 of these cards would give you a whole mining farm.
And yes at $4000, it doesn't come cheap.
But you do the math; to build a comparable GPU rig, you'd be spending in excess of 6 to 7000$ on gpus alone. That's without accounting for the cost of PSUs, mobos, ram, risers and gpu racks. And not to mention the amount of room estate required to house the rigs.
So how did you come to the conclusion that FPGAs aren't much better at mining than gpus?
Yes it takes some effort to get it up and running but as far as the cost vs performance analysis goes, FPGAs win hands down. It's not even a contest.
Btw. Asics are also here to stay.
GPU mining would soon become like CPU mining.
You might want to check your facts.
crypto mining started on CPUs. Not gpus!
you do not get it do you, cripto is that because of GPUs it started with them and it will end with them, ASICs do the job but only for a while and then they are useless if there is new fork or new algo, FPGAs used to be a thing before the ASICs but they just couldnt make it because they are way to expensive and hard to be programmed and for the price they sell they dont do much than few GPUs,
And I guess you have none of those and no rigs as well so you just prefer to deny GPUs as a criptomining tools even tho this video is for the ETH algo and the E3 is basically a more compact version of a GPU rig, and FPGAs is also in a way a GPU just one that you could upgrade your vRam and program to do whatever you want
garbage... I was a little upset on missing batch 1 on these but now not really. I do have 12 GPU 570rx mining rig right now, it barely pays for electricity is consumes. I am wondering if it's a good time to start downsizing?
Love the videos and I love mining but seriously, GPUs or ASICS; enjoy them while you can. Bit Mains ultimate plan is to be the only crypto miner. They're already buying US power generation plants to set up massive mining farms on hundreds of acres. They didn't make $1.1B in profit Q1 2018 from just selling their 2nd gen ASICs when Amazon did 1.6B!
Thx for the review. I am still interested in getting an ASIC sometime but it's just not happening lately... idk lol. Hair: cool, don't really care. I go DIY buzz cut myself. Did a man-bun thing half/shaved for a while until I got sick of the maintenance. Okay, maybe I do care about the hair... just like... not in the sense that I care to bother with it haha. Have you been working out less? hehe crypto is an obsession.
Vosk, what do you think of the Innosilicon A9 ZMaster? I've got quite a few of them (I've done some deals with them and they seem better than bitmain) and they perform fantastically, especially with the BOGO free promo. What are your thoughts on it?
I knew these are GPUs when I got the email from Bitmain. I just got the memory wrong, expecting it to be DDR5. They probably got these memory chips for dirt cheap, regardless of its size and weight which increases cost
The next GEN must be mining for months in Bitmain. They probably waiting for the next bull run of crypto before they announce and start mass producing it.
Thanks Vosk for another great video. I do really like the ease of use with the ASIC's, plug them in and away they go, no muss, no fuss... though that can be a double edged sword, for someone who likes to tinker, there's not much tinkering to be done, though I did look around the file system of the Z9 mini a bit, decided not to touch. At some point I'd like to purchase another unit and these videos along with keeping an eye on forums and your discord channel really help to make informed decisions.
Hey thanks for the reply! I have run the Z9 mini overclocked since day one, I did tinker a BIT and try to OC further than 750, but it seems there's a hard limit to what the unit can do and 750 was as high as it would go, any further and it would fall back to a 'safe' speed, but way under it's potential. At 750 I'm getting 16.36 mh/s, VERY impressive. My 1070 ti rig across the room looks on in jealousy.
Appreciate the kind words and long response broadie! Agreed the simple plug and play factor of an ASIC is appealing especially for ease of use getting more individual new miners into the game.
Agreed again, they are kind of boring. We can have so much fun with GPU rigs and you also naturally learn so much more about computers and setting them up. Are you running it overclocked and if so what speed?
good job! well this dose make me sad, hope maybe ETH will get wise and fork or something, but at this time its doubtful. I do find some good comic relief when I check out the prices for the antminer L3 on ebay lol people trying to dump them for $300 hum at .15 cents a day profit lol.
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.
