ASIC for Kaspa iBelink BM-KS Max
- Created: Monday, 12 February 2024 01:11
A new name has appeared in the list of ASIC miner manufacturers for the KheavyHash mining algorithm: iBelink with the model BM-KS MAX. The presented ASIC offers a hash rate of 10.4TH/s with a power consumption of 3400W. iBelink prices its novelty at $11,000 USD. The energy efficiency of BM-KS MAX is 320W/TH, which is 17% better than direct competitors such as Bitmain Antminer KS3 and IceRiver KS3.
Considering that the proportion of energy costs in KASPA mining ranges from 5% to 10%, the energy efficiency of ASIC miners will not be decisive when choosing a specific model, as it is in Bitcoin mining. Instead, attention will primarily focus on the cost and delivery times of mining equipment.
For comparison, the ANTminer KS3 (9.4Th and 3500W) can be purchased for around $14,000-$15,000 USD.
The payback period for iBelink BM-KS Max, taking into account the current equipment cost, Kaspa's value, and network difficulty, is approximately 120 days or 300% ROI.
