Coincidentally, the confirmation was made on the very day Bitmain, which is the largest producer of mining equipment used for Bitcoin, introduced a brand new ASIC – Application Specific Integrated Circuit; which is dedicated to virtual currencies such as Ethereum and a host of others that are Ethan he-based.
Bitmain is based in China and has been able to establish itself across the globe. The manufacturers of the Antminer E3, which will be made available to the public from July 2018. This mining equipment really sold out after its maker opted to begin accepting preorders from worldwide miners.
