A potential issue would be that the pool pump isn't pushing water 24/7 through the heater.  For this reason it might need a tank inside of it, with a small pump and blower fan that kick on when the pool isn't providing the flow to push cool water through it.


actually, pool circulation generally runs 24/7. its the heating functions that can be turned on or off.

fact is that if the water isnt circulating, or the pool is warm enough, you will have to turn off the unit or dump the heat elsewhere when mining.

Not any pool I've ever owned.  My current one for example only runs 8 hours per day, during off-peak hours.  Ideal mining time.

i love using the older gridseed 5 chip series and I hope that the new sfard chipset can have am upgrade board for the older gridseed 5 chip series.. like me and others, we have a collections of parts for the older gridseed and it would be cheaper to keep my current gridseeds and just replace the circuit board to a sfard chipset..   its not that hard to change over and i would save money.... and for the contest ..  how about a marketing catchphrase!!       

               " Mine with this!!!!!!!!!! " or to a new be customer " do you mined? "   ..

Another most “controversial” design entry 

Solar mining... from space!   We have a satellite orbiting the sun for electricity.   It mines from space!   Sending it's hashing through freaking lasers.  Space and lasers!

An awesome miner series would be one that would be able to integrate to your current living situation, no matter own or rent. This means one that would either use liquid cooling and send hot water to the hot water tank or an ultra efficient miner that connects under sink and uses a small generator that uses the water spinning to generate and store power to occasionally turn on for a few hours at a time and hash. (low power such as a single chip miner)

Another amazing miner would be one that is able to use the fans to make certain musical tones for musicians to be able to tune their instruments to.

Just a couple of unique ideas!

But I think the very best miner would be one that is able store heat in a system that is able to release it instantaneously such for cooking, drying clothes and many other applications. (which could be actually doable and able to make the heat a miner produces not only a good thing in the winter but able to keep efficiency way up and mining cost almost free!) This would need an external system but all future miners made by the company would be able to plug into it making that company way above the competition no matter the heat output!

ever crossed in your mind that we could mine bitcoin with electricity generated from cow dung ?.
miner would be very profitable because the cost of electricity would have been covered by this biogas power plant . that so the problem is the making of this biogas power plant should have a large area, meaning that it is not ethical if it has oversized miner . but quiet I had a brilliant idea . we can put electricity result of cow dung into a portable container . which chargeable it means we can fill the electricity once 12 hours or maybe 24 hours.
IMAGINE YOU WILL EARN BIG MONEY AND SAVE THE WORLD AT A TIME!

The ideal miner would be not bigger than a NAS, will be silent, will connect directly to power outlet and router and the settings will be done remotely. I wrote something like this on FB too.
Another idea would be ... a bigger router, that can also mine.

I have to say as someone who lives on a farm this is a interesting idea.  It's pretty crazy though cattle are EXPENSIVE.  You could buy a solar panel for less then most good cattle.  And yes.. yes that is crazy but it's true.  Add in land for them, again a HUGE cost.    It's a neat idea but you could do a solar farm for less.  And the costs keep coming get pricing for a fence for X acers.  Food for cattle.... It seems like it goes on and on on costs.  Unless your family was in it and you get lucky and inherent as many do the start up cost will keep most out of the cattle business.

I do like the idea though.  Neat idea, just cost is way to expensive even before including special equipment needed to do the power system.

I think would be fun if we had a miner that we could eat after we use for mine bitcoin .This idea sounds crazy maybe  but why not?
more or less the shape of the picture like this Cheesy



so when you are upset or annoyed or fed up or booring because of spending and revenue from mining results are not comparable you can eat your miner directly  Grin

yummy , happy mining and happy caking!  Grin

Speaking IMHO, The best miner is like a good horse. Fast, energy efficient, good looking and stable;) short words SFARDS. BEST means more than good, BEST means that are wiling to hug your warm miner(horse) during cold winter nights with gratefulness for all that free heat and free monies. Best miner is your buddy:)

The best miner, IMHO...

Would be based on existing form factors, allowing the user to upgrade his/her
existing equipment without having to buy additional heatsinks, fans, and cases.

The company would decrease their time to market by not having to design and
assemble complete units, only replacement boards for existing models.

I would like SFARDS PCB's for the following models:

Zeus Blizzard
Zeus Hurricane
GAW Falcon
Gridseed all models

There is a huge market here. Reduced time to market, reduced engineering
costs and reduced shipping fees mean higher profits for such company and
it's customers.

Fish tank heater?  Would need wifi, but would be a cool little device nonetheless.

I would love this idea.  I have a small tank.  If my fish would swim around a miner that would be amazing.  Instead of star trek characters i would have to start naming them after bitcoin items Smiley

Solar panel around the miner and also wifi so we can place it in front of sun to save some electricity cost or if it is not possible a package of solar panel with the miner which can afford miner power consumption  Grin Grin

nowadays it it very expensive and usable for small miner like U3. You will waste a lot of energy at days with full sunlight and stop miner often during cloudy. Huge battery may help, but solution never ROI.

There is no need for impractical controversal toaster, I think re-use of wasted electric energy is the key. Big datacenters will have always cheaper electricity than home miners.

Why not use peltier coolers to generate electricity from heat? They can cool our miners and produce some energy.

I like people who think about power saving. That's how I chose the components for my PC.

My ideal miner is user friendly & good at playing Minecraft & Manic Miner. I like components which have low power consumption & are powerful.

my ideal miner would have 90 ROI, great efficiency and great reliability. at current BTC prices the antminer s5 with power supply is 242 day ROI. thats ridiculous. its just too damn long.

Add a faucet rotator into the miner, so that you can gain dust from faucets while mining.  If anything it will improve ROI figures.

.BIG WINNER!.
