September 9, 2019 New crypto mining technologies will be released by both Bitmain and Northern Bitcoin.

China-based mining firm Bitmain will release two new models in its Antminer series: the S17e with a hash rate of 64 TH/s and a power efficiency of 45 J/TH, and the T17e with a hash rate of 53 TH/s and power efficiency of 55 J/TH. Both seek to improve upon Bitmain’s current top-performing model, the S17, which has a hash rate of 53 TH/s and an efficiency rating of 45 J/TH. Further, German mining firm Northern Bitcoin is slated to release an air-cooled mobile mining container for outdoor use, following successful testing announced today. The product, which contains 144 ASIC miners, is optimized for use in colder climates and intended to facilitate the company’s expansion of its mining operations into Scandinavia.
