Chinese mining giant has introduced a new Bitmain ASIC device on the hashing algorithm Blake256: Antminer DR3, which is created for mining cryptocurrency Decred (DCR), which occupies 30 position in terms of market capitalization ($321,994 million) in the CoinMarketCap list.

Feature Decred is to ensure the stability of the system combined mining PoW/PoS with additional validation blocks. It is expected that the Antminer DR3, wherein the power consumption in watts at 1410 Hasrat of 7.8 TH/s and price of $673 and improve the efficiency of the network. At the same time, the community of enthusiasts Decred there are fears that the deteriorating reputation of Bitmain may have a negative impact on the project as a whole.

We are pleased to announce the new Antminer that mines DR3 Decred with a hash rate of 7.8 TH/s and has a power consumption of 1410 W. Order here ( now to receive the first batch!

We will remind that recently the head of the Bitmain Wu Jihan (Jihan Wu) announced the release of 7-nm processor on the basis of specialized integrated circuits (ASIC), the hash power and power efficiency which is much higher than previous models. However, informed analysts at AllianceBernstein reported that Bitmain may lose the advantage in the development of equipment in the background of a potential problem with the income.
