Bitmain Antminer D3 DASH Asic miner review

Bitmain Antminer D3

I got Antimer D3 ASIC miner and I’m really happy about the quality of this miner.

Setup was really easy and performance was even better than promised (over 20000MH/z). Power consumption is about 1200W from wall with Bitmain 1600W PSU.

Antminer D3 X11 hashrate

I’m using CoinMine.pl as pool and it’s reporting average speed over 20300MH/s. Profitability has decreased significantly after I got this because of increasing difficulty.

Masternode Coins

What are Masternodes?

Masternodes primary function is to relay transactions across the network. Additionally they carry out the anonymization of funds and enable double-spend-proof transactions through instant lockdowns.

In the future even more valuable services will be performed by the Masternode network.

In return for providing these services, one Masternode is selected by the network to receive a part of the reward of each mined block.

In order to run a masternode, a user must put needed amount of coins as something akin to collateral, though unlike traditional collateral, the coins never leaves the user’s possession. It can be moved or spent at any time by the user – doing so simply removes the masternode from service and makes it ineligible to receive rewards. You need dedicates IP address and 24hr uptime is ideal.

Is now a good time to buy? Is now a good time to sell? Am I too late?

Every now and then, we need to take a step back. We get caught up in the short-term trends. We panic sell. We panic buy. We forget about the bigger picture. A pause and a deep breath would do us all some good. Blockchain technology is here to stay, and adoption has only just begun. I’d like to offer some perspective. Let’s travel back in time to one year ago today.

Now look at how far we’ve come…

Coinmarketcap 9.7.2017:

Look at the market caps. Look at the prices. By all means, do your research, but it’s less about picking cryptocurrencies and more about picking cryptocurrency. Invest in the blockchain.
