With the encrypted digital currency closely linked to the ecological mills, also from the “xiangbobo” into “shanyaodan”.
Recently, the “daily economic news” reporter login the first machine manufacturers – bit, found the official website, once caused tens of thousands or even tens of thousands of stir, a hard to find, and even help the smuggling mill have slashed prices.

Compared with the beginning of the current pricing, a variety of models have been reduced to less than 10%.
The bitcoin mining machine, T9+ was the most obvious. Official website shows, the ant mining machine T9+10.5T (including APW7 power), the price of 1800 yuan. At the same time display, APW7 power unit price 650 yuan, the actual price is ant mining machine T9+10.5T is only 1150 yuan.
Back to the beginning of time, in January 3, 2018, the “ant mining machine sales” to the public launch of ant mining machine T9+ sales information, ant mill T9+ was the provisional price for 24900 yuan. A message, mine circle commotion. In the following, some friends of mine asked: “this machine to 10.5T, why is it so expensive?” Other friends of mine echoed: “yes, I was also puzzled, compared to S9, is low, high power consumption, why can sell S9 two times the price? Don’t know where one is confident, recovery over a period of 6 months, midway also not the accident.” At this time, there are friends of mine replied: “you can grab it?” Someone asked: “this can buy?” According to the current price, this machine has dropped to 4.6% at the beginning of the year.
In the mill Wright currency, L3+ price is not ambiguous. The ant miner’s official website shows, L3+504M models, the current price is 400 yuan.

The “daily economic news” reporter’s inquiry, March 11, 2017, business evaluation ant L3+ Wright currency mining machine, the price is 11700 yuan.

The “daily economic news” reporter’s inquiry, January 17, 2018 at 14:00 in the afternoon, the bit in its official website released a new machine — ant mining machine A3, all currencies can be dug Blake2b algorithm, one of the most representative is Siacoin (also known as cloud storage currency, SIA is a cloud storage to the center of the block chain project).
The batch of a total sale of 6000 units, each purchase of an account. Although the official price of 20800 yuan, but the miners have been listed on a sold out, is a hard to find.
Insiders at the time of computing, SC (cloud storage currency) as an example, a A3 machine rated hashrate 815G, according to the difficulty of 1G every day can be dug about 15 SC, each SC price is about 0.21 yuan, a machine 815G, equivalent to about 2567 yuan. Investment 20800 yuan, 2567 yuan a day income, this is not the next golden eggs? No wonder looted.
Reporters once again in the current price estimates, currency and network difficulty, with 0.4 yuan price is /KW, a A3 mining machine one day, gross income 3.12 yuan, net electricity 12.24 yuan, with 9.12 yuan, is not artificial and custody fees, really is the scrap mill.
In the world of money machine, D3 fell the same miserable. Official website shows, the ant mining machine D3 17G, priced at 300 yuan.

Correspondingly, in 2015 and 2016, respectively, sold 230 thousand bits and 260 thousand sets of machine, the first half of 2017 only sold 180 thousand sets of machine, with the end of 2017 to early 2018, the bull market, a bit in the second half of 2017 and the first half of 2018 were sold mine machine 1 million 440 thousand units and 2 million 560 thousand units, the cumulative 4 million taiwan!
But it is worth noting that, in 2017, its bit sales revenue has accounted for 89.9% of total revenue; the first half of 2018 is as high as 94.3%.
That is to say, in 2017, the first half of 2018, net profit of $700 million, this bit, are made in the currency supply price rise, profits in mills.
