BITMAIN’s ANTMINER E3 Firmware Update

The ANTMINER E3 will certainly have the ability to proceed extracting Ethereum with the most recent upgrade from BITMAIN.

Recent media records have actually specified that BITMAIN’s ANTMINER E3, the equipment developed for mining Ethereum (ETH) as well as Ethereum Classic (ETC), will certainly purportedly quit Ethereum mining by April 2020

These records were based upon computations made by altcoin mining swimming pool 2Miners, which highlighted the current decrease in the hash price result of ANTMINER E3 mining gears on the Ethereum Classic network.

This decrease recommended the E3’s equipment was coming close to obsolescence however many thanks to brand-new firmware the miner can remain to mine Ethereum.

Launch of brand-new firmware

To make certain BITMAIN can supply reliable mining tools for the Ethereum area, it has actually released a brand-new firmware to sustain the ANTMINER E3. This brand-new firmware has actually been created to enable miners to proceed utilizing the ANTMINER E3, also after March2020

This brand-new firmware addresses the previous concern of the development of guided acyclic chart (DAG) documents, which restricted the capacity of the ANTMINER E3s for mining ETH or ETC. This brand-new firmware will broaden the use of Double Date Rate (DDR) Memory, as even more area is required to refine DAG data

So, the length of time will the ANTMINER E3 last?

Thanks to the brand-new firmware, ANTMINER E3’s can proceed extracting for the near future. The brand-new firmware has actually been made to far better assistance the ANTMINER E3, therefore BITMAIN is positive that miners can proceed utilizing the equipment past April2020

With the brand-new firmware upgrade, the last approximate block elevation of the ANTMINER E3 is 11,400,000 According to computations, mining can proceed up until October of 2020.
