There is apparently a new ASIC miner coming right around the corner called TODDMINER C1 for the Eaglesong algorithm used by the Nervos (CKB) project. The device is made by a new Chinese company with the Toddminer being their first ASIC device apparently. TODDMINER C1 promises to deliver 1.6 TH/s hashrate with 1100 Watts of power usage, a significant improvement over the existing FPGA miners with support for the algorithm. The new ASIC is priced at 28800 Chinese Yuan or about $4100 USD with shipping about to start in March, so in just a few days from now.
Currently a BlackMiner F1 Ultra FPGA manages to do just about 26.5 GH/s with about the same power usage and a daily revenue of about $9 USD, however that is about to change with the new much higher hashrate ASIC miner. So bad news for HashAltcoin and their FPGA miners and the people that use them as CKB was the best performing and most profitable project to mine for a few months already.
