2 Algorithms added to the Baikal X10 miner

Published on: 2018-04-11

Baikal just announced the last 2 algorithms for their Baikal X10 (also known as Baikal BK-X ) miner.

The algo's are Nist5 and X11Gost. The most popular minable coin for Nist5 is currently Bulwark and for X11Gost it is SIBcoin. Both of these coins are masternode coins.

We have also updated the ASIC overview page of the Baikal X10 to include these new coins. Check it out for a complete overview of all the coins it can mine.

Baikal Giant N announced

Published on: 2018-03-13

Baikal just announced their Baikal Giant N ASIC miner. This miner can mine coins on the CryptoNight and the CryptoNight-Lite algorithm. View all coins the Baikal Giant N can mine. The miner costs 3600 USD with a minimum order quantity of 6. The Baikal Giant N only uses 60 Watts of power, making it the most efficient CryptoNight miner by far.

Unfortunally for buyers of this ASIC the largest CryptoNight coin Monero has already announced that they will alter their algorithm to prevent ASIC's to mine Monero. We expect other Monero based CryptoNight coins will follow. We will update the supported coins of this ASIC once the fork has been made.
