Bitmain Signs Another Deal of 15,000 Antminer S19 Series with Riot Blockchain, Empowering it with a Significant Mining Hash Rate Growth

Hong Kong, Dec. 22, 2020 – Bitmain – the world’s leading producer of cryptocurrency mining hardware today announces a new purchase deal of 15,000 S19 Series Antminers with Riot Blockchain, Inc. (“Roit Blockchain” or “Roit”), a Nasdaq-listed cryptocurrency mining company.  This approx. $35 million purchase is comprised of 3,000 S19 Pro Antminers (110 TH) and 12,000 S19j Pro Antminers (100 TH). These top-selling miners are scheduled for receipt and deployment starting in May 2020 and continuing through October 2021.  

In total, Riot has purchased 37,640 next-gen fleet of miners from Bitmain within this year.  Bitmain’s S19 Series has quickly become a true game-changer and a model of high performance in the market since its debut. With the new order of 15,000 S19 series Antminers, combined with the previous purchases, Riot is predicted to significantly increase its mining rate capacity to 3.8EH/s in 2021 and will gain an aggregate mining efficiency of 31.79±% 5 J/TH after full deployment.   

“We are extremely excited to expand and deepen our partnership with Riot Blockchain again this year. In total, Riot additionally purchased 15,000 Antminer 19 series. The 19 series enjoy a wide popularity in the global markets with outstanding hash rates and power efficiency, which continuously bring tremendous values to our customers around the world. I am confident that with the new purchase, Riot can continue to grow their mining operation and play an increasingly vital role in bitcoin mining across North America.” said Irene Gao, Antminer Sales Director of NCSA Region, Bitmain.

“Continued growth in deployed miners is paramount to a miner’s success,” said Jeff McGonegal, CEO of Riot. “Expanding the Company’s bitcoin mining hash rate and operating on a cost-effective basis is very important, particularly during periods when the bitcoin spot price has appreciably increased. We are pleased to have secured this latest purchase, especially given that the available supply of mining hardware continues to become increasingly scarce.”

Four FAQs answered as the countdown to the Bitcoin halving begins

With less than 100 days to the next bitcoin halving, all eyes are on the world’s largest cryptocurrency. 

For crypto enthusiasts, miners and investors, this is considered a significant milestone that will pose a number of considerations to their operations. 

What is “halving” and what happens when it occurs?

The bitcoin halving or “the halving” is a deflationary mechanism that’s programmed into the Bitcoin network by the cryptocurrency’s anonymous creator, Satoshi Nakamoto, to occur every four years.

The event is a function of the bitcoin protocol and is projected to take place in May 2020, which will halve the amount of block rewards for miners from 12.5 to 6.25. 

Why is this significant for miners? 

Halvings are a significant part of a cryptocurrency’s economic model and what sets it apart from traditional currencies.

Regular fiat currencies are structured with an infinite supply and often managed by a centralised government body. 

On the other side of that, cryptocurrencies like bitcoin are designed to be a deflationary currency, which are issued in a decentralised manner via a transparent protocol. 

There are only 21 million bitcoins in circulation and less than 3 million left to issue. Because of this scarcity, mining is seen as a timely opportunity to acquire newly issued coins.

What will happen to bitcoin mining after the final halving event?

It’s important to understand what’s on the horizon for the bitcoin mining community before the halving event takes place.

The May 2020 halving event will be the third of its kind. In total, there will be 32 and after these have taken place, the supply of bitcoin will be capped. After this, transaction fees from users will be the incentive for miners to validate the blockchain. 

Currently, the bitcoin network hash rate is around 120 hashes per second (EH/s). It is estimated that this could continue to increase before the halving in May.

Once the halving does occur, mining machines that have a power efficiency higher than 85 J/TH (similar to that of the Antminer S9’s models) may no longer be profitable. Read on to find out how miners can best prepare for all this.

How can miners prepare for the upcoming halving?

As the digital mining sector has matured over the years, a greater priority has been placed on understanding the life-cycle of mining hardware.

One key question many miners may be pondering is: What if the bitcoin price doesn’t change once the halving occurs? 

Currently, most (55 percent) of bitcoin mining is run by older mining models that are less efficient. If the bitcoin price doesn’t change, the majority of the market may struggle to make a profit in mining.

Miners that have invested in hardware with all this in mind will fare well in the season ahead, while for inefficient miners, remaining in operation may not make economic sense anymore. To stay ahead of the curve, the most up-to-date miners can give operators a strong competitive advantage.

Bitmain is working hard to ensure their machines are built for a “post-halving” world. For example, Bitmain’s AntBox can cut construction costs and deployment times by 50 percent, while also accommodating 180 17 Series miners. Bitmain has also recently just announced the new-generation Antminer S19 series.

Overall, this is a good time for miners to re-evaluate their current farms and setups. Is your mining farm designed for optimal efficiency? Are your staff trained on the best practices to maintain hardware? Responding to these prompts will help to better prepare miners for operations in the long-term.

Bitmain Announces Specs for Next-gen Antminer S19 and S19 Pro Coming Soon

SINGAPORE, 27 February 2020 – Bitmain is officially announcing the new Antminer S19 and S19 Pro, two new Antminers offering incredible performance.

The next-generation Antminer S19 and S19 Pro come in two variants. The Antminer S19 is equipped with a hash rate of 95 TH/s, while its other variant has a hash rate of 90 TH/s, both variations have a power efficiency of 34.5±%5 J/TH.

As for the Pro version, hash rates and power efficiency are further improved. The Antminer S19 Pro features a hash rate of 110 TH/s, while its other variant has a hash rate of 105 TH/s, both variations have an impressive power efficiency of 29.5±%5 J/TH.

The Antminer S19 series is equipped with a new generation custom-built chip from Bitmain, achieving a power efficiency as low as 23 J/TH. This was achieved by enhancing the circuit architecture, greatly improving power efficiency.

Utilizing the new APW12 high-conversion efficiency power supply, the Antminer S19 and S19 Pro achieve enhanced stability. New firmware also introduces faster startup speed and an intelligent control mechanism to ensure the best mining experience.

The next-generation Antminer 19 series showcases industry-leading technology from Bitmain, allowing miners to efficiently mine Bitcoin under the SHA256 algorithm. The new iteration of Antminers boasts superior performance, enabling miners to optimize earnings and is designed for better operations ensuring long-term operations.

As the Bitcoin halving approaches with the price of block rewards to be reduced, the Antminer 19 series safeguards miners for future mining.

The Antminer S19 series specifications is available on Bitmain’s official website.
