The demand for Bitcoin mining hardware seems to causing some strange decisions among the many ASIC manufacturers and one such is seemingly the announcement of the Bitmain Antminer V9. A small 4 THS SHA256 ASIC miner that uses 1 KW of power, so not very efficient, however it comes cheap at just $345 USD. There are already some speculations that this might as well be old hardware renamed and refurbished as a new product to clear up some old mining hardware utilized by Bitmain of their mining farms in China as an alternative of getting to relocate it to a new place. This batch has a MOQ (minimum order quantity) of 5 units and all ordered quantities can only be multiples of 5 (10, 15, 20 units and so forth) with the utmost variety of units in a single order as much as 300. The shipping for all confirmed orders will start after March 1st and payment accepted is just in Bitcoin Cash (BCH) and USD wire transfer.

All in all not a very exciting new announcement of a new ASIC miner from Bitmain, efficiency wise the “new” hardware is disappointing for the performance it offers on the rated power usage. So it appears to be targeted at users on the lookout for cheap hardware that have really cheap and even “free” power, otherwise it just doesn't seem economically reasonable to purchase these miners in the intervening time.
