As for those who already own ASICs and video cards, there is also good news - their devices can be given a new lease of life throughout overclocking and extending their lifespan in a dust-free environment.
The more devices involved, the more electricity is required for the farm. The original solution implies the use of renewable energy sources. We will try to find out how real is it and analyze its demand among miners.
ASIC cooling takes a lot of resources and the result does not often satisfy the miners. How comes it?
This is mainly refers to varieties of mineral oils, PAOM, silicone oils (PMS, PDMS, PES siloxanes) or fluoroketone. So why have we decided to conduct a bunch of experiments and choose an optimal and cheap composition considering that there are plenty of solutions out there?
We will start with a review of the most popular ASIC models and then we will build the economic model of each solution efficiency for February 2019.
Today miners face lots of obstacles. Bitcoin rate is not high enough, equipment is susceptible to dust, which affects its service life. All that leads to additional expenses, equipment downtime, reconfiguration and loss of profits. Is there really still no solution to get rid of the two main problems of mining equipment?
