Vosk reviews his two month old Bitmain Antminer S9 capable of mining Bitcoin BTC / Bitcoin Cash BCH / Digibyte DGB and other coins on the SHA-256 Mining Algorithm. Since the start of 2018 all mining profits are decreasing and mining difficulty is continuing to increase. Today I review the Antminer S9 as a piece of hardware, what the daily earnings are, and how the rising difficulty + rumors of Antminer S11 make for a less than optimal outlook on Bitcoin mining in 2018

i was thinking that as well can this all be done off macbook also how fast does your internet speed have to be i can basically get free electricity an i mean free but im in black area for internet, no nbm or fiber optic best internet land router box / speed i could get would be 5mb/s download speed would this be enough to run 2 3 or 4 s9 antminers
Ok, but Bitmain has just released ant miner S9i "new model" its the same old S9 hahaha, I don't understand why Bitmain is making a new version of same old miner
only 20 watts less according to their site and profitability is the same I think at least on antminerprofiotability.com (as far as it says here: https://antminerprofitability.com/antminer-s9i-profitability/ - so I don't understand why they are making a new model S9i? LOL. WHY BITMA!N?!
I saw a few miners here on YouTube several months back talk about Mr Roland, at first i was skeptical about him but after some time the number of testimonies increased. I decided to give him a shot, now I am great full because i mine btc daily directly to my wallet address as I had follow his instructions and then returns increased to get started contact [email protected] com
Questions most traders are yet to get answers for. Should you mine cryptocurrencies? Altcoins? Is mining bitcoin still profitable? Is mining Ethereum still profitable? How much money can you make mining cryptocurrencies? Don't look for the needle in the haystack, buy the haystack. These are wise words from john. C bogle. Inventor of the index fund. Block chain technology has grown exponentially since 2009. The total crypto currency cap is roughly $150 billion. Should you invest?(high returns comes with high risks and extreme volatility) bitcoin's market share has dropped, now altcoins are the majority. There are literally thousands of coins to choose from. So the question is how can one invest in crypto currency effectively? How can one mine coins with great turnouts? I my self started out on some little coins while investing in them little by little and also mining, well I can say I really made a smart decision by doing so with these coins which are now generating great turnouts for me. Interested persons should reach out to me for more information on how to go about these coins which are really promising. ([email protected]).
Bitmain is such a scam these days. It was only good from July-Dec 2017. They sell you a product in USD but only take BCH. Then of course you have to pay shipping $140-160ea + import tax $60-80ea and then wait months for the pre-order product and the market drops like crazy, then just before they ship you your pre-order they come out with the same item but cheaper on their site than what you can ever sell it for, screwing over all the Pre-orderers. To make up for it, they give you a discount code to buy more of their product F##@$ Bitmain!!!
1 you need the 14 T/H S9. While they are only .5 TH higher they out preform the 13.5 significantly. 2. They work like the horse n buggy analogy. ( you have 1 horse that pulls 1k. and another horse that can also pull 1k. But link them together and they pull 4k) using one aintminer at a time is not going to be very feasible. In my experience.*
Hi Vosk. I like all your video man. ^_^ So i'm hoping to get some advice from you. If that is okay?
Here's my nightmare! i want to run 2x different GPU at the same time but i do not know how! Any advice on how to run my 2GPU at the same time?
My specs below.
Motherboard - Aorus x299 Gaming 9
GPU - 1x Aorus 1080ti 11gb Extreme edition
GPU - 1x Aorus 1060 6gb extreme edition
Power supply - FSP Hyper-M 700W
2x Riser PCIE64P-No3 Version 006c
Thanks in advance!
Vosk can you do a "a day in the life of a miner" where you show us your daily fixes (cuz theres always daily fixes to do), your remote-in software and how you manage all your miners. i have 29 8gb and 11gb GPUs and im having a nightmare managing it all.
hi, great reviews and i love watching ur videos, am in south africa, notices you have dgb with the blockfactory on sha 256, how is it going compared to bitcoin using the s9, as i am mining them as well but am concerened re the qty mined and have also added some l3 antminers using the scrypt algo, whats ur advise

Annndddd....a couple days after this video and Bitcoin has SUPER-tanked...again. I'm just mining all I can before difficulties make it pointless...then I'll hope the crypto is actually worth something in 6-12 months.
Hope it gets better, but it's not too bright in the cryptocurrency world. I heard some exchanges are selling their technology to banks, and i thought crypto was something that was suppose to go against it. I wonder if they're helping central institutions or cryptocurrency
Yo check out idealcash or dealcoins the transcation is very fast
less than seconds very active community and developers
started price with 1 sat now its 3sat community helping to grow day by day
its worth to check out! search "idealcash" its cool! also got 30% interest by staking!xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Vosk, on your comment about S9s being out for years and people are expecting new. Moore's Law is being widely accepted as dead and any huge reduction in nm size on chips puts it at a point where the electrons jump the circuit lanes. So not much room left for chip improvements which is why they haven't changed in a few years now.. so history doesn't always predict the future.
My GPU build was a pain in the a$$ in the beginning, but has been smooth sailing for the last two months. As for the 3 S9s I ordered from Bitmain, all 3 received were broken, exchanged for new ones only to get 3 more that do not work. I'm about to start the process for another exchange. As always mine at your own risk.

yes mining is a little scary, but in any market the ones who persevere are the ones who survive. the difficulty will jump around as FOMO miners hop blockchains. one month ETH could be great to mine, the next month not so much. Ive been great mining ETH and Zcash since november.
Hey brother luv your work. I have a nice asic mining setup. Was hoping to get sum advice n help from u as I move to our industrial location and start gpu and cpu mining along with internal trading ! Look forward to discussing with you ! Respect
Hope u r well .... I was just thinking as I was doing preventative maintenance... the a3 I bought as a SIA test ... I was yes lucky to get right away .. and luxury to hold ...
but today the machine mined its 100,000 th sia coin ... now the production is being cut in half. I’m not sure how long we will run. I’ve had all d3 machines off line for over 7 weeks now ! Huge loss !
But for a trader ? A starter even ? What a great startup to investment. Buy the miner and mine about .25 btc and now you have funds / assets to start trading the cycles either as swing or as daily ! It would have been a gr8 way for me to start and get feet wet ... instead I bought and made many trade mistakes as I learned from my mistakes until successfully and read the cycles ... and many mining mistakes — such as Any d3 miners (my first investment !!!!!! 🙄😬) boom I was hit with flying multiple bricks. I still stare at them in corner as learning lessons !!!
Any bitcoin miners have done me very well even the t10 miners due to high quality and increase in btc (holding ) selling at proper times !
I’ve experimented with switching all btc asics to Bch but the waves are too controlled and unpredictable and CENTRALIZED IN TOO MANY WAYS !
I Don’t feel asics especially now with Samsung and others in the game. The asics are a good future for some projects. Of course not all !
I don’t agree with forks n such just to run from competitive industry... in no other business is it ok to change business plan because competition is nocking .. welcome it as true adaption ...
yet of course I see both sides ....
I’m anxious to know what miners are coming up next
OBVIOUSLY BITMAIN AND SAMSUNG ARE CURRENTLY MINING WITH NEXT GEN MINERS— obvious with the selling off of leftovers by bitmain and halong...
Keep up amazing work Vosk’ you the shizz’
The S9 and L3+ have been bulletproof for me. I think I have had the S9s for about a year now and they have held their value quite well, but when/if a new model comes out = game over. I have a love/hate relationships with ASICS - easy to setup, but unless you are in the first batch or so, good luck at hitting any decent ROI. Big thing that has been stopping me from adding more miners is waste heat.....If there's a good way I can actually use the waste heat (for other than heating) to make $$ I'm all ears. keep up the good vids dude.
I've been enjoying your videos for a couple of months now. Your's is one of a few mining channels I feel are worth watching. Would you mind commenting on the long term profitability of the S9 if someone were buying it today from Bitmain, or possibly doing a video analyzing such a purchase? Assuming BTC price stays in its current range and given average difficulty increases, how long would running an S9 be profitable? Any estimates on what final net profit would look like? Keep up the good work!
What's the ROI on that thing right now? And with difficulty going up up up, that's probably hard to even calculate over the next 12 months. 8 bucks a day is a long way from what it was when you first got it. You may have it paid for by now, but buying one now, I dunno!
Nice review Vosk. It's worth saying that Bitmain always posts their available batches on their Twitter. It's the best idea to wait and get the ASICs for cheap from factory.
Also, why don't you mine the most profitable and trade for coins you want to hold for a time to mature and sell?
I still don't see what are the actual earnings from the S9. I've heard you also earn transaction fees which whattomine doesn't include. I'm tempted to get an ASIC as its pretty bad getting GPUs right now.
Good Video as always!
i have 2 S9 myself- i am totally satisfied and i think bitmain is ok.
you can hate on them for being against the original idea of crypto and so on
but as a customer i have no complain.
i mine a lot with gpus too and it is absolutly amazing how easy and stable the antminers are in comparison.
it took me like 3 months to get all my rigs to run smooth-and it took me 3 minutes with the antminer.
still love gpus more because it the real thing and so flexible - you got the choice what you mine,
keep up the great work vosk!!!

Depends on who you ask. Bitmain says not to plug it into 110v. They say you must use 220v in a few places (including the manual that comes with it). I ran mine for 24h on 110v but the cable got pretty warm. I wouldn't trust it on 110v.
Zak Dietzen Yeah ppl just fail to realize, that with only 12 gtx 1080s u make 20$ per day even after the big crash, like month ago u could get 100$+ per day with this setup... Ppl are just letting their emotions into the way, and miss out. Forgot to add 1080 makes around 1.60$ per day, when a month ago it was 10$ per day, sometimes at peek it would go up to 14$. :DDD
Im thinking the price drop is more of the SEC announcing going after unregistered exchanges, and the court case that bitcoin is a commodity. The Binance issue was foolish people whom previously fell for phishing websites, that added a trading bot API when users entered their credentials and 2fa. Which today that API told a ton of accounts its linked in to sell sell sell all at once. Binance CEO CZ twitter just announced the details of the how people got phished. Pretty crazy, but always check your urls for even a small . Being under a letter! I think that Binance is amazing in that they are reversing the transactions at their own cost! Unlike Kraken whom bankrupted users last year and now have a class action lawsuit against them...
Daily Digest Your right as It probably did add to it... There is now also story about the mt gox BTC and BCH has been getting liquidated. Last 5 times in past 3 months lined up to each big drop we've had. And they have thousands more coins to sell. So in typical bitcoin fashion there is like 4 huge things to cause todays pullback. I really should just delete my blockfolio app and check the price next year lol.
Nick Joseph Litecoin Cash is crazy scam. I looked into it as the mining profit looked amazing. Then I found out that the only exchange that was providing the prices wouldn’t allow you to deposit ANY LCC!
How can the exchange have any to sell if no one can deposit the coins? Sure you can mine a bunch of them, but they are only worth a fraction of what Yobit was quoting. I don’t know if they were running a scam or just a crazy hoax/joke.
Nice coin! Today I got my S9 and am mining DGB with it (just to run the miner 24 hours before it goes to the datacenter). I am mining DGB as well with one L3+ (several weeks now). It is doing approx 265 coins last 24 hours at approx 830 Watt. I have to wait and see how many coins the S9 will do, and compare which of these two Asics would be more profitable for mining DBG. From your video it looks like you are doing approx 300 coins a day, is that correct? So the L3+ gets 0.32 coins per Watt (265/830), the S9 gets 0.21 coins per Watt (300/1430). I did not expect this big a difference! So I thought, let's share this.
I am sure the A3 does not do anything else than the blake2 algorithm, meaning it can not mine DGB. Besides, the A3 is no longer for sale (it has been sold out for a long time). If it could do other coins than siacoin, I would know as I have one A3 miner: the 'expensive' (first edition) version which needs until end of next year to be earned back probably. To be safe in mining, check this channel. The self made rigs can be used for many, many coins. Plus, eventually, you could run them in your house. Asics make a lot of noise and are designed to be used far away of civilization. Haha, let's put it that way!
How to become bitcoin trader? Exactly like Bitcoin, multiple digital currencies exist in the marketplace. So if you prefer to buy a few other currencies which aren`t available on Indian Exchange than you can utilize Bittrex. All you have to do is locate an exchange that you favor. Cryptocurrency exchanges have a massive potential to modify peoples minds and opinions concerning cryptocurrencies generally speaking and their application in actual life. So even in the event the exchange is attacked, its still true that you have your money. Furthermore, the exchanges prepare each and every industry for Bitcoin expansion. Existing stock exchanges will also compete to be able to fulfill the users configuration requirements. Sooner or later later on, the prices will grow more equal, meeting somewhere in the middleyour profit is equivalent to the quantity of convergence. No matter how far it is from Kijun, it is likely to return and test that level at some point. The amount of bitcoin is perpetually changing. In the US, it is 1000 USD. Whats even better, seek the services of a seasoned lawyer or at least ask for an in depth consultation. So youve read the newspaper about the meteoric growth of crypto currencies including Bitcoin or Ripple. Then coming up with 1000s of exchange rates simply to go out and get groceries is nearly impossible. Many cities around the world provide a bitcoin ATM where you are able to trade cash for bitcoin. The cryptocurrency world isn`t efficient.
