New Antminer A3Edit

Chinese mining giant Bitmain caught the mining community off guard on Wednesday with the surprise launch of a new cryptocurrency miner.

The infamous Chinese company has had a chequered past among the cryptocurrency community, being embroiled in the scaling debate in 2017 which saw Bitmain lean towards support of Bitcoin Cash.

It now seems as though Bitmain is looking to squeeze the life out of another virtual currency - Siacoin.

The new Antminer A3 model will be able to mine cryptocurrencies using the Blake(2b) hashing algorithm - which currently powers Siacoin.[1]
