I have three old Butterfly labs miners (2x150Ghash and a 7.5g/hash) what can I do with these now?
No point starting up Bitcoin mining with these so is there anything I can mine?
Sorry if this is not where I should put this question!

the AS in ASIC means Application Specific so they will only be able to mine SHA-256 cryptocurrencies, you cannot repurpose them for anything else. Also with the age of the machine you will not be able to find anything profitable to mine with them as they burn way more power than current miners.

Stop buying industrial miners, running them at home, and then complaining about the noise.

Thanks for the reply.
Yes I thought that might be the case,  I dug them out of the basement after giving up Bitcoin mining 3 years ago and it seemed a shame to just dump them!

They are snapshots of the history Wink

One day they will be worth something so you may consider burying them back to your basement.
