Chinese leading mining devices maker Bitmain announced on Monday 17 the launch of the Antminer S9 SE, a low-cost version of its most popular mining rig.
The Antminer S9 SE has been developed for individual miners with a tight budget who do not wish to invest too much money in their mining equipment.
The device went on sale yesterday for $350. Bitmain only allows the purchase of 10 devices per order.
The miner works with the SHA-256 algorithm (BTC and BCH) at 16 terahash per second (16TH/s). Its consumption is 1,280 W, reaching a power efficiency of 80 joules per terahash (J/TH).
The first orders are expected to be shipped between July 21-31.
U.S. users will have to pay more than other buyers as a result of Donald Trump's tariffs on Chinese products. They will have to pay an additional 2.6% tax as well as an extra 25% import tax.
