Check out ASIC miner Zeon 180K for mining Zcash (ZEC) and its hashrate, profitability plus specification with other relevant information before you buy. According to the developers of ASICminer, Zeon will be “27 times more energy-efficient than mining on video cards”, so there is a high probability that the complexity of mining Zcash will increase significantly, and this will primarily affect GPU miners.
Do it yourself, one Zeon 180K is equivalent in power to 20 GTX 1080Ti. At the same time, everyone, 20 video cards (priced at $ 1,200 each) will come out 20% more expensive than one Zeon. It turns out that already in September-October 2018, GPU mining using the Equihash algorithm will be completely “killed”, and as a result, owners of GPU farms will have to switch to other mining algorithms.
Specification and Hashrate – ASICminer Zeon 180K Miner:
- Hash Algorithm – Equihash;
- Productivity – 180 000 sol / s;
- Noise level – 45 dB;
- Power Consumption – 2200 W;
- Weight – 27 kg;
- Start of sales – September 2018;
Obviously, Zeon will only compete with the Innosilicon A9 ZMaster with 50,000 sol / s, since other devices
(Bitmain Antminer Z9, ASICminer Equihash 40K) were not even close in terms of performance and power consumption.
Profitability and payback of ASICminer Zeon 180K
As of August 29, 2018, the device produces $ 187 per day, taking into account electricity, which is about $ 5,604 per month.
Theoretically, owners of the Zeon 180K will be able to pay off in just 4 months, but in practice, everything is much more complicated. As soon as the first shipment of these unrealistically powerful miners begins, the complexity of mining Zcash will increase at times, which in fact will affect the payback period. Unfortunately, but the more Asiks start working on Equihash, the faster the complexity of the network of cryptocurrencies working on this algorithm will increase.
based on the medium term, the increasing complexity and relative stability of the Zcash price, the Zeon 180K will pay off in about 6-7 months.
Advantages and disadvantages of the ASICminer Zeon 180K
Among the key advantages are the following:
- Unprecedented performance;
- Energy efficiency;
- Low noise due to water cooling system;
Zeon has only two drawbacks – the average build quality of the devices and a bit overpriced at the start.
If the Zeon 180k really enters the market, then such mining giants Bitmain and Innosilicon will have to lower the price tags on their devices so as not to undermine the trust of customers, since the promised daily profit will simply melt before our eyes.
Zeon 180k is an unprecedentedly powerful ASIC, which is many times superior to existing devices. If just a month ago, miners looked at 50,000 sol / s with special enthusiasm, now 180,000 sol / s is absolutely incomparable performance.
