Bitmain Launches Cheaper Mining Machines After Bitcoin Halving and Losing Market Share to MicroBT
Bitmain has launched a cheaper version of a Bitcoin mining machine, Antminer T19, compared to its more pricy predecessor Antminer S19. Bitmain has been losing its market share to its rival, MicroBT, which launched its M30S++ Bitcoin miner in April this year. The Antminer T19 has a hashrate/ mining power of 84 terahash per second (TH/s), and power efficiency of 37.5 joules per terahash (J/TH). The price of this new mining machine is around $1750, while the S19 costs around $1785.
