ASIC vs GPU mining? Which one is better? Which one is more profitable? Which one has longer staying power? We got our hands on an Antminer D3 and did a bit of testing to check out what the current ASIC market is like. While this may not be true of all ASIC miners in general, the Antminer D3 is a giant pile of wasted cash.

    hello good afternoon, I write to you from venezuela I am mining with 5 gtx 1060 of 6 gb and I already have the money for the purchase of an antminer, I wanted to know if the D3 antwerp of 19.3 gh is going well for my , the electric cost is not a problem, it is free where I have my miners

    South Africa?Why not import to North America or Europe?

    The dude that made this is an idiot. Even the worst ASIC still easily defeats a 20 gpu rig in every way you can measure and saves you thousands of dollars in the process.And the gall that someone would whine about the price of a $2500 ASIC when they have to buy $6000 of video cards to even have any hope of mining Ethereum and making a penny profit. How come you don't mention the real ASIC machines, like the ones going for $150. Course,t hat was 3 years ago before idiots took over the market and people came up with the get-rich-quick scheme of miners being duped into trying to get something for nothing.

  • scaleop4

    so it works better as a room heater lol

  • kwastek

    oor you can invest a fuckload of money and buy FPGAs. they will be universal and you'll be able to constantly tweak them at your leisure. but again, fuckload of money.

    Dislike and reported for the LGBTQP extremist propaganda in the background.

  • Burner Fire

    Run ASICs during cold winters, you'll be paid for using a heater...

  • Digibyte Awareness Team

    I heard Bitmain uses their miners to Mine Bitcoin. Then when they develop the Next Generation, they sell off their old used miners(cleaned up of course) as "Tested". So everyone is happy about having the latest tech on the market, but Bitmain is using even better Miners that are not released to the public, until they create the next generation miner. Is this true?

    Theoretically if you didn't have to pay for electricity what is the best way to mine?

    What about the a3? How Much Will it make Usd per day at current difficoulty and 11cent per kw

  • James Holbrook

    You might be able to get a bigger fan and ducked it down to the right size and use it in the winter to replace a heater

  • Peter Langelaar

    We upgraded it with a custom firmware running the machine at 70 celcius and silence mode dropping the energy to 750 watt

    Its like the gods of economy played a prank on anyone with too much money yet no ambition on earning the old fashioned way to perfectly not break even in a certain amount of timeif you want a shortcut your way through life.

    finally someone honest

  • Harley Me

    cpu's are killed of by gpu's which are killed off by asics... and now, since bitmain is going after ALL the crypto (eventually).. you will have to buy the same # of asics in the entiretly of what isw the bitmain minging rigs. well.. none of them will be profitable for anyone but china...... thanks bitmain for monopolizing a supposed decentralized currency.. Wow antpool pretty much has a monopoly of all Sha256 coins.. hope they go bankrupt.. or they're ruin everyones profit.. how bout we shit on them for a change and firewall of like lil Kim un the psuedo terrorist . lol

  • leonardo zarate

    A video criticizing ASIC miners against GPUs while you have MSI boxes behind you. Well done.

  • Douglas Wahl

    I mean... I hadn't upgraded my gpu in 8 years, got a newish one that paid for itself in six months and now I'm ahead.... a great graphics card that lets me play new games. Sounds like a win to me.

  • Giorgi Misireli

    If you understand it now, you have problem in your mind

  • RyanWake bradtelle

    Could I use those things to heat my house? Would that make it profitable


    oi mate, love how fast u talk. other vidz are 4x as long and don't even cover half of it! respect, and thx for the input !

  • Antoine Jameson

    Seeing the after effects of the machine they proposed with Dash ($300/day theoretical profit during launch time to now $2/day), and a complete takeover of the hashpower issuance with possibly stronger machines mining privately, they should definitely not be trusted gaining traction on other major networks like Ethereum.

    Good video quality dude

  • Raisa Musienko

    OK! Nice. Might as well work on an air field without ear cups! Although I don't mine, I do find your mining videos very entertaining!

  • Andrés Castillo

    Where are the GPU miners now? Oh wait, making god knows how little after Ethereum difficulty went through the roof.

    What are your thoughts regarding Antminer X3

  • W N

    crypto mining is a complete waste of time and resources for a risky and pathetic return on investment. No one makes any REAL money pursuing this. People need to read about the Tulips saga.

  • Jack Carter

    you realize you just gave all of your followers a step by step guide on how to tell that miner to send the coins to their wallets

  • installtekz

    I spent 5k on antminers. Not 1 is still in 100% condition. They fall apart at the seems

  • Krzysztof Bielicki

  • Chris Balfour

    ASIC miners start out effectively overclocked. Not that I recommend buying an ASIC miner, but some people undervolt and underclock them to keep them turning a profit. It's all about improving the gigahash per kilowatt hour ratio, until it's favorable. Undervolting is not easy to do, and just underclocking wont reduce power usage much. People that reduced the power draw by 50% have shown less than a 50% reduction in the hashrate, which means the general efficiency of the hashing can be improved up to a point. If the alternative is selling the miner at a loss, then it's not a terrible plan (unless the person modding the miner shorts it out and destroys it).Another use for old ASIC miners is low cost electric space heaters. If you can replace an ordinary space heater with almost any ASIC miner during the winter (and a pool lets you join) you'd get a partial "refund" on the electricity. But, it's a lot of work to set up for this purpose and the default fans are too loud. I was half tempted to buy an old $50 miner just to try this, but winter is almost over (maybe next fall).

  • Jack Bisson

    It seems like this Bitcoin hardware and overall network could collapse on itself with the actual cost of the hardware and the power consumption.
