The section for those minor projects that are around, such as CAS@home, Yafu, Yoyo@home and also including those that are "non-intensive", such as GoofyxGrid, WUProp, which can both be run in the background.

Bitmain R1 miner

Post by UBT - Timbo » Mon Oct 12, 2015 9:32 pm

Hi all,

I've just seen that a new Bitmain Bitcoin miner is now available.

I'm pretty sure it can't be used for BOINC, but OTOH, lots of people need wifi type routers and this little device also contains a Bitcoin mining chip inside, rated at approx 5GH/s - about double the speed of the U1 and U2 ASIC's.

It can also be used with their U3's ASIC' if you want to have a play, you can also get them here:

Cost is approx $45 via eyeboot website - other sites might be more expensive.
