Anyone have more information than Bitmain has posted on their website yet? What they DO have posted is very uninformative and confusing.

https://www.antpool.com/user/antRouter.htm



 It DOES make me wonder if they intend to put WiFi (or some sort of wireless anyway) capability in their next generation miner(s).

I'm no longer legendary just in my own mind!

Good find.  But Yes and No.  This looks to be just a wireless bridge.  The miner itself wouldn't to need to have wireless capabilities.

I wonder it also.Router consuming 2W power and it is miner too? I think it's only for solo mining 'cause they say payment is 25 btc to your wallet. But I'm confused too. No proper information anywhere. Or this is just one more "coming soon" option.

I wouldn't be too surprised if it doesn't actually have a mining chip inside, and instead just acts as a perpetual rental of a low hash rate from Bitmain's cloud offerings.  But hey, if they want to beat BitFury and/or 21, Inc. to the market with an 'IoT miner', more power to them Smiley

Instead of serious toys they work on TinkerToys?  If it indeed will mine I doubt pool options would be available and as said would be directed to Antpool or Hashnest.  Fun possibilities but there surely is a catch which benefits Bitmain.

Looks like we are finally seeing our first miner in a device, I assume this uses one of the new S7 chips in it instead of just throwing it on a usb stick. This could be really cool to check out!

The 2w is for the router only part, don't expect that to be the power draw while mining expect a at least one chip or two in there.

It seems to only solo mine, still a nice little solo miner in a phone charger and access point if need be, I will definitely be keeping an eye on this little product.

Reading it I'm thinking the same thing.   I think it will have stats of regular miners pointed to antpool, but I think these routers look like "lotto" devices. 

Guess time will tell on that.

Yeah it says that if you hit they will call you and help you redeem your coins so it seems it is a solo like pool through antminer like CK's but they are aiming for new users and the inexperienced.

I really wish they provided more details on speed.  I think someone screwed up adding it early to site.

I find it interesting they show it in third pic talking about taking with you looking like a hotel.  So they are recommending it travel with you, interesting idea for a small miner.

I will be honest though I really don't want it as a main router.  I would love one to play with but chances are I would use as lotto device not use as main router.  Unless they really surprise me with a feature for having it in front of our miners.

would you pay 7k for that ?.



10 days for mining 1 KW mining for 7k + that is a dollar sigh now that means two things to me it cost 7k to buy or in 10 days you can make 7k . either way both are wrong or what fool will pay 7 k for some thing that won't do that in 10 days if it means that . lmao .

I think they mean it would be around 7k if you got a block with it.  So it's talking about possible reward, not cost I think.

Again I could be wrong but I'm thinking they are talking about it winning at "lotto" or solo mine with little device.

I know it just how it's worded to sell . it makes you think two things . I do hope so , but it does look cool.the real price might be a the price of one U3 but the catch you have to buy 20 .

 i think its more of a gimmick to get you to use the cloud mining.  not much hash with 2w and it needs to be linked to your antpool account.  so if they can see that the device is on,  they will keep the cloud mining rate of something tiny.  turn off the device or loose power and your cloud mining stops.  interesting way to pretend the device is an actual miner. 

or am i wrong?  does it actually do any mining at the hardware level?

maybe you right
what miner can do with 2 watt?

so lets go to q/a
    Q:It is the same with a normal router?
    A:They are the same except AntRouter can mine bitcoin. AntRouter has 3 operating modes: AP, PPPOE.

so it's clearly a router.  Grin


    Q:If I dug bitcoin, how much is the profit?
    A:The profit AntRouter can make is a whole "block", which includes all 25-26 bitcoins output from it.

so, while we buy it, same as we buy a lotto ticket..
this is new way to sell cloudmining. let see the mining stat :
    You have been mining for 0 days, 0% to achieve target!
    There are 0 miners dug 0 bitcoins,
    During the last 100 days in 9 valid miners.
    The amount is equivalent to the current exchange rate of $0!

so, its clearly linked to cloud mining  Cheesy

I wouldn't use it as a main router and I doubt other would but for having miners that need to be ethernet connected away from the main router this is a solution and alternative to buying TPlinks and have a chance  to have it hit a block. I don't know what they are going to do (either mine on their side or have a single chip in here) but the higher the hashrate the better!

I doubt it will be able to replace the tplinks though.  They all run special firmware loaded on them.  I know my avalon 4.1's can use one. I don't see bitmain being worried if they work with my avalon 4.1's.

If they make it where I could plug in some usb sticks with it then I would love this device though.   So much is guessing hopefully they release more soon.
