Bitmain slashes S19 Pro prices to $19 per terahash
Amid the crypto winter and the market capitalization of the crypto economy hovering around $927.21 billion, Bitmain Technologies has decided to sell its Antminer S19 Pro mining rigs at a discount. At the same time, the price of bitcoin (B T c) is down 5.52% during the last seven days and is currently trading at less than $20K per unit. The mining difficulty of the cryptocurrency network is at an all-time high and the network’s hash rate stands at 223.73 exhash per second (EH/s) today.
“Bitmain is Offering an Antminer S19 Pro Special Discount for Only $19/T,” Bitmain tweeted on Tuesday. “For bulk orders, please contact [a] Bitmain sales reps directly. Customers who have already purchased the S19 Pro will be eligible for the coupon,” the company said.
Bitmain’s 100 TH/s technology is 80% cheaper than 5 months ago, Crypto Winter highlights ASIC purchases at ‘discounted prices’
Bitmain’s sales are much cheaper than the base prices of the Antiminer S19 Pro. On March 29, 2022, a customer can buy a Antminer S19j Pro 104 TH/s . with for $9,984 per unit. The 100 TH/s S19, which produces a slightly smaller hashrate than the S19j Pro, is 80.96% cheaper than the S19’s prices five months ago – at $1,900 per unit. The low price may have contributed to the massive expansion in recent days from multiple operations and bitcoin’s skyrocketing hash rate.
This week, Nasdaq-listed and Gwyneth Paltrow-backed terawolf (Nasdaq: wolf) revealed that its Lake Mariner mining data center now has 12,000 mining rigs operating at the facility and that a great deal of TeraWolf’s rigs are Antminer S19s. CleanSpark Inc. (Nasdaq: CLSK) also detailed that the crypto winter brought an “unprecedented opportunity” after acquiring 1,061 ASIC mining equipment at a “discounted price.”
