Hello guys, i'm thinking about buy 3 antminer A3. Problems are: they will be ship around the end of march (i mean, if they don't scam me...) and the difficult will be higher for that time.
If you were in me, will you do it? If not, why?
I still haven't bought anything, but planning to do it.

Any help and answer is VERY welcome, thanks
As far as I know bitmain is going to release ASIC ethereum miner. So I think this will be the next something like "sia attack". Ether with asic can have a great profit. (P.S I don't know that fact 100% sure, just heared here in some topics). If that's real, I think it worths to wait and put all money/effort in it.
On another hand would buy baikal giant miners if they are in stock or possible to buy.

ETH miners are already out, at least some people call them asics anyway.
Baikal are very expensive.

Ummm, link to an ETH asic? As far as I've known for, like, ever, it's a strictly GPU algo...

I'm with you on that one. I think it would be extremely difficult to create an ASIC for ETH (ethash algo) because as far as I know you still need a large amount of RAM to hold the Directed Acyclic Graph (DAG). Now if someone has figured out how to take eliminate the DAG requirement, or figured out a way to share access to the RAM, which holds the current DAG, for all the ASIC cores calculating the hashes, then that may change. The current ETH DAG is approximately 2.34 GB and growing, growing, growing. The current estimate is that 3GB cards (like GTX1060) will be no good for ETH in May 2019, but I would bet that the end is closer than that, since not all 3GB is actually available to hold the DAG.

I'm a bit skeptical about much profit remaining in running an A3.  If you look at the other coin-space taken over by ASICS, the event marks a significant tightening of supply vs demand.

Might be better to move to mining a fresher coin and buy where ASICS invade rather than buy a device with a limited future.

There aren't much coins to mine with this ASIC.

And even coins like ZEC or ETH, they don't have ASICs but people are buying GPUs like crazy and the difficulty still skyrockets.

Mining now with an A3 sucks balls, 1500-1600 SC per day, $30 bucks basically. Hard to justify the price, hard to even reach break even.

One would need to really believe Siacoin will appreciate A LOT.

You guys on here saying the A3 "sucks balls" and expressing skepticism about remaining profit need a reality check.  Currently the A3 is the most profitable ASIC on the market.  It makes $30 a day.  The S9 is making $10 and the L3+ is making $9.  X11 is making $1.50.  3 GTX 1080ti's are making under $10 on average.   Obviously this can all change and it will, but lots of doom and gloom for something that is doing so well.

I'm in it for the long haul on the A3, and don't like the temps getting above 80 degrees. Has anybody had any luck underclocking these to a decent level? I cant seem to keep the temp below 80 despite max fan speed.

In a nice cold garage btw

575 seems to be the goto for stability. If your temps are super high, reboot. Often rebooting at the same settings will, for some reason none of us can figure out, lower temps by up to 5C.

There are different philosophies on this, but I think a lot of it comes from the fact that SIA doesn't have a maximum quantity cap, so while I do believe the price will go up from the current $.02USD, it doesn't have the same hodl appeal of other coins.

I’ve tried everything and best I can get them is running in low to mid 70’s but they average near 80 each day as I have to shut down some air flow at night.

Wait for next batch.. It will be 12-15$ per day, just like with GPUs

Look at This.... impressive!
I thought I was doing well.

Could this be Bitmain or just a Farm?
I would think Bitmain would be on Antpool, no? but i wouldn't put it past them to put some of their machines on other pools.
I also noticed that some of the machines have started going offline.

I also wondered the same thing. I know Bitmain created their own pool but it would make sense to keep the bulk of your hashing power on sia's pool to keep them from forking the coin considering this single miner has more hashing power then a couple of the pools.
