Halong DragonMint T1 Miners Arrive at D-Node
After months of waiting, the Halong DragonMint T1 miners have arrived in Dallas. Everyone at D-Node is excited to be hosting our first batch of the newest SHA-256 BTC/BCH miners to hit the market.
The DragonMint miner is produced by Halong Mining and is powered by a 10-nanometer application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) designed by Samsung. When compared to Bitmain Antminer S9s, the new T1s are similar in appearance and roughly the same size. However, the DragonMint miners make their own distinct sound when hashing.
The T1 reaches nearly 16 TH/s immediately locally, while ramping up to 14.98 to 15.97 TH/s poolside on SlushPool. The DragonMint miners pull roughly 1480 to 1497 watts at the wall using a 1600-watt PSU on a 220v PDU.
With these specs, the DragonMint T1 is currently the most efficient miner on the market but not by much. In comparison, the Bitmain Antminer S9 pulls 1375 watts at 14 TH/s. The two competing miners are similar in speed, with an edge to the T1.
