ASIC mining

There are several ASICs available that support Bitcoin mining and mine it efficiently.

  • The dashboard that is designed for managing a larger or smaller number of ASICs fast and efficiently;
  • Custom alerting notifications that will let you know when there is an emergency;
  • Custom triggers that watch over your ASIC machine and reboot when efficiency or hashrate drop;
  • Ability to use profit switch.
