Chinese tech giant Bitmain Produces Ethash ASIC Miner

Chinese tech giant Bitmain announced that they’re releasing an Ethash ASIC miner, in accordance with a tweet April 3.

In the tweet, Bitmain says that the Antminer E3 would be the “world’s most effective and efficient EtHash ASIC miner.” The units will retail for $800 each and in line with the tweet, aren’t for sale in China, nor would they be shipped to Hong Kong, Macau, or Taiwan. Orders are limited by one per person. Bitmain will simply accept Bitcoin Cash (BCH) and US dollars for payment in this first batch of units.

This release of new mining hardware from Bitmain confirms rumors circulating in the crypto community that Bitmain would soon develop an Ethash ASIC miner. Ethash would be the Proof-of-Work (PoW) hashing algorithm employed by Ethereum (ETH) and many different other altcoins.

It was reported earlier , some in the Ethereum community suggested the likelihood of a hard fork in the ETH protocol to invalidate ETH ASICs. Ethereum founder Vitalik Buterin suggests the protocol has already been resistant to mining centralization in the Ethereum White Paper:

“First, Ethereum contracts can include any kind of computation, so an Ethereum ASIC would essentially be an ASIC for general computation – ie. a better CPU… [The algorithm] allows anyone to “poison the well”, by introducing a large number of contracts into the Blockchain specifically designed to stymie certain ASICs.”

Bitmain surpassed the US GPU manufacturer Nvidia in terms of overall profits in 2017, earning an estimated $3-4 bln and taking 70-80 percent of the market for Bitcoin (BTC) miners and ASICs.
