An ASIC (application-specific integrated circuit) miner is a device specialised only for a specific type of work. In the cryptocurrency space, ASICs are capable of hashing certain mining algorithms (e.g. SHA-256 on Bitcoin or Equihash on Zcash) with high efficiency.
These workers represent an upgrade from CPU/GPU chips, which usually become obsolete for any given mining algorithm after ASICs are developed and introduced to the market.
Visit asicminervalue.com for a comprehensive list of ASIC miners for different coins. Don't forget to check which algorithm the selected device is made for and which coins can be mined with it, in our case:
- ASIC miners that support SHA-256 algorithm for Bitcoin mining
- ASIC miners that support Equihash algorithm for Zcash mining
