Bitmain second offer offers cheaper SHA256 and Scrypt miners

On October 26 they reopened the offer in Bitmain, to acquire the miners S9 and L3+. Its price is reduced between 10 and 15%. Are we seeing a new mining sales strategy?

Market discussed between Bitmain and Innosilicon offer

The market offering that Bitmain and Innosilicon are currently struggling with is the same: To offer better prices with unbeatable power and efficiency.


Founded in 2013, Bitmain Technologies, now one of the most recognized bitcoins companies in the world. It was established to develop and sell the world’s leading bitcoin miners using Bitmain’s ASIC chip technology. Starting with Antminer S1, his task became increasingly difficult as the bitcoin “difficulty level” continued to increase. They followed Moore’s Law in this emerging field of ASIC chip design and were pioneers many times. In May 2016 they launched Antminer S9, the world’s first consumer bitcoin miner based on a 16nm process ASIC chip. This is also the most efficient bitcoin miner in the world, removing that title from its predecessor, the Antminer S7.

Currently, Bitmain is among the most recognized companies in the space of the cryptocurrencies. It is the proud matrix of several brands, including Antminer, Antpool and Hashnest, all rated as number one in their respective fields. Their machines and customers are present in multiple locations in almost every country in the world.

Especially they are dedicated to the production of efficient and high-quality computer chips. They have high-density server equipment and large-scale parallel computing software.

Established in Beijing, with offices in Amsterdam, Hong Kong, Tel Aviv, Qingdao, Chengdu, Shanghai and Shenzhen.


Innosilicon Technology Co., Ltd., located in the Suzhou Industrial Park and in the high-tech areas of Wuhan East Lake. With a global competitive advantage and a large market share, it is an advanced IC design company in the world. Its business covers the design of mixed circuits of several interfaces of the last generation of ultra-high speed. They have high-performance computing and central design of multimedia codec audio and video codecs.

Another point is that their offer is much broader in the chip sector. Innosilicon has also successfully developed a series of mixed high-speed IC / AD / DA IC products from 40nm to 28nm. As a result, they have established a stable partnership with many world-renowned design and equipment companies. Innosilicon is in the period of high-speed growth with a bright future.

Innosilicon is a fabless IP / IC design company. It is innovative and world class that focuses on high-performance PHY and mixed-signal IP. With world-class multinational design teams in China and North America, Innosilicon IP has helped many Tier-one companies achieve the rapid success of SoC (more than 30 million chips in annual output) through its products and services highly advanced.

Innosilicon’s offerings are: low-cost, high-performance, cross-casting, fully customizable solutions combined with our award-winning customer design support. Its IP service is used by millions of mobile, multimedia and consumer electronic devices such as tablets, cell phones, HD decoders, TV, cameras, networks, computer integrated circuits that have achieved market share. They currently support SMIC, TSMC and GF processes from 180 nm to 14 nm.

Its mining offerings are Innosilicon A4 + LTCMaster and INNOSILICON A5 DashMaster.

Veteranism and trust, the decisive offer

Bitmain has long been selling its mining equipment at a fair price and renowned quality. In addition, they have endorsed thousands of miners sold and good performance, with really amazing delivery times. Your Antpool pool offer is one of the largest in power thrown to the net. Hundreds of users are connected around the world. Its headquarters is in Shenzhen, Guangdong, China. (Mainland). The ASIC miners offer for both Bitcoin, Litecoin, DASH x11 make them the pioneers in segment sales.

In addition Innosilicon has recently entered the market offer with its ASIC miners for Litecoin and Dash x11. They have not yet released their latest model for Bitcoin due to consumption improvements. However, it will soon.

Centralized Market Strategy in China

Therefore, we are faced with two of the most powerful brands in the market in the ASIC mining offer. Most notable is that Bitmain is improving its prices and loyalty to its customers. Innosilicon, on the other hand, has the offer of having more efficient equipment. They focus on dedicating themselves to making chips. Although the prices are quite higher and acceptable minimum standards.

There are still few companies dedicated exclusively to the supply of dedicated miners. They are also found in China and the country which has almost all manufacturing of these chips. Therefore, there is little choice between two or three companies. In a way, it indirectly obligates to buy the ASIC products in this continent.

First, the offer just launched Bitmain will not last long. In addition, Innosilicon can extend its offer of new miners but it is not known until when.

In conclusion, decisions must be made quickly in a constant supply-change market.

Probably run out soon. If you have an opportunity, do not let it pass.
