D-Node Hosting Receives First Batch of Baikal Miners
D-Node Hosting is excited to welcome our first batch of Baikal BK-B Miners. These versatile miners, also known as “Giant Bs,” were first released in January 2018.
The Baikal BK-Bs can mine several different algorithms including: Blake256R14 (Decred), Blake256R8 (Vcash and Blakecoin), Blake2B (SiaCoin), Lbry (Library Credits), and Pascal (Pascal Coin) with a maximum hashrate of 160Gh/s for a power consumption of 410W.
With regards to size, the Baikals are slightly smaller than a Bitmain Antminer S9. The standout feature of the Giant B miners is the open-air design on the exhaust end of their cases. This design exposes the hashing boards and allows the power supply to connect on the back end rather than on the top. It also means the Baikals do not have a fan on the exhaust end.
A final difference is that the indicator lights are blue, so it makes them stand out in the ocean of green and red at The Mint.
