The brand new miners are referred to as S17e and T17e. They’re alleged to extra environment friendly and sturdy that Bitmain’s earlier merchandise, in addition to safer. Whereas the prices of the machines aren’t but public data, persons are desperate to get their palms on these new machines and Bitmain is already taking orders. Those that make purchases now can anticipate to obtain their machines by late November – proper as bitcoin is alleged (by some analysts) to start a brand new trek in the direction of $20,000 per unit.
