Weekly link roundup 23

Here’s our weekly installment of links from around the web (see here for all link roundups). As usual, linking does not imply endorsement.

  1. Some of the links you’ve been showing in this page are pretty nasty. The EvulCapitalist, for example, is downright racist. Do you believe it is worth linking to that kind of text?

    1. Actually, your complaint is not about the links, but what they link to. You could write to the EvulCapitalist and ask or convince him to pull his post down or change it. Not linking to it, does not do that. And as explicitly stated: there is no endorsement implied.

      Speaking for myself: I like it far better if there are links in the roundup that point to material that challenges open borders, even controversial or objectionable material. It’s like you can’t win a battle more easily if you cut out reconnaissance and don’t know where the other side stands or what their strengths and weaknesses are.

      1. Just to clarify: the original post by EvulCapitalist was taken down long ago (I think that whole blog was taken down) — what we linked to was a re-share of that by blogger Paleo Paleo, who seems to endorse the general theme of the post.

  2. I think that’s a good question.
    One way in which linking to such material might be useful is that it showcases some of the awful reasoning that underpins (or is used to rationalise) restrictionism in some cases.
    I think the right thing to aim for, then, would be to try and provide a representative picture of all that goes on in reasonably influential corners of the blogosphere, be it of high or low quality. As far as I can muster, the link roundups do a fair job of living up to that sort of ideal.

  3. What Are ASIC Miners – Kryptominerstech.com

    Application-Specific Integrated Circuits (ASICs) are built and designed for specific purposes. ASICs are used in mining incorporate microprocessors that are made for mining Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, dogecoin, kadena and other crypto currencies.

    This devices contain several microprocessors emerged in a circuit which comprises over 100 million logic gates, packed into circuit chips and sealed into casings. Each consists of cables (outlets/ports) that allow connection to a power source, a computer and the Internet.
    It is possible to connect multiple ASIC miners together to mine with more hash rates as we can connect them to a computer through USB or other methods and using USB hubs.
    At this point, you can then locate their IP addresses using a computer program, create a wallet, configure it into a mining pool using mining programs on the computer, and manage them.
    Fact: The mining hardware market will grow by USD 2.80 billion, at a CAGR of over 7% during 2020-2024. And this growth will be propelled by the ASIC mining hardware being sold at more online and retails facilities that gradually keep arising.
    The Mining hardware market:

    -First, check the profitability of the best ASIC miners and crypto currencies you want to mine using online profitability calculators, before proceeding to purchase. Device pricing also varies from one manufacturer to another and depending on whether it is new or used.

    -Then confirm other factors like, heat dissipation, energy consumption, decibels, and reviews about the best ASICs available on the market.

    -Maintenance of this hardware also affects durability and profitability. Better devices are being manufactured so it is always advised to estimate the lifespan of an ASIC when buying and later determine when to dispose before or when it turns not profitable.
    -And lastly Mining pools should be considered for mining any crypto currencies, otherwise, you make little or minimal returns.

    Profitability of Asic miners
    Crypto currency mining is profitable when the hardware is efficient and if there’s cheap electricity and although mining hash rate adjustments is an obvious factor of demand and pricing, profitability also depends on the price of a crypto currency.
    The profitability of an ASIC miner for given crypto can be checked with online calculators and it is always profitable when mined through a mining pool depending on the economics of a given block chain and coin.

    As of early 2022, it takes about 10 minutes to mine a block, and a block will award a number of coins to whoever mines it and moreover, miners earn a transaction fees between 5-10% of the reward after mining a block.
    Is ASIC mining preferable/good?
    Yes. They are better than GPUs and CPUs in crypto currency mining and are more powerful in terms of processing power, where they can process more data per unit time.
    They also save more power and are rated in terms of hashing power or hertz per second (hash rate) either Th/s, Gh/s or Mh/s. Terra hash ratings are currently the highest ratings available.
    What ASICs can mine Bitcoin, Ethereum, Kadena and more?
    1) The Bitmain S19 is the currently one of the best Bitcoin ASIC miners so far with the Pro version capable of blasting 110 TH/s of hashing power. The miner has other two models: Antminer S19, Antminer T19 and apart from the Antminer S19 Pro.

    2) The Bitmain Antminer E9 is tailored to mine Ethereum blasting hash rates of up to 3GH/s. Other miners made for Ethereum ASIC mining are the InnoSilicon A10 ETHMaster, and the InnoSilicon A10 Pro which has a hash rate of 500-700 MH/s.
    3)The Goldshell KD6 kadena and Goldshell KD5 kadena miner also known as the KD6 and KD5 are probably at the top of the rankings when it comes to mining the kadena algorithm propelling hash rates of 29,92Th/s and 18Th/s respectfully. Other kadena mining hardware available on the market is the Goldshell KD2 miner, kadena ck6 which are still considered handsome when it comes to returns but doesn’t yield as much as the previous mentioned.
    4) There are numerous ASIC miners available for mining other crypto like the Bitmain Antminer L3+ (504Mh/s) for Litecoin mining, Antminer D7 (1.286Th/s) for Dash and the Antminer Z15 (420Ksol/s) for Z cash mining.
    NOTE: There are a lot more mining hardware available for other crypto currencies. Some more than one for a single coin, It all depends on the pricing and durability and also depends on the buyers choice.
