Last chance, for now, to pledge for a GekkoScience Compac: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1126705 
Either direct, or through one of the group buys (see 2 posts up in this thread).

I got some to test, looking forward to having a stick miner to play with again Smiley

Avalon have put up a product page for the Avalon Nano 2 in their ehash.com store.
( Price is either incorrect or for unspecified multiple units )
It still uses a single A3222 chip - just like one up from the Avalon Nano - but has a fancy new body and a new mining interface (Chrome App - though I would be surprised if cgminer/bfgminer failed to work).

Unfortunately for this thread, one other change makes it run afoul of one of the defining characteristics of a StickMiner; "Does not require a cable to interface with the USB port"
The Avalon Nano 2 has a small USB port (presumably microUSB and not USB C), rather than a USB connector (A or C) instead.  While using a USB A to USB micro B adapter plug (and those could easily be more compact than shown) circumvents the exact wording, it doesn't stop it from violating its spirit.  At the same time, given its form factor, it clearly is much closer to a StickMiner than it is to a desktop/podminer like an Antminer U3, Gridseed Orb or Avalon Mini (2015). Yet bending the rules means that previously excluded miners would suddenly also become valid and the list would require further criteria, especially going forward into USB C connectors with high power delivery.

At this time, I have added it to the list of excluded miners as a form of honorable mention.

7,2 BTC for "1 to 3,6 GH/s according to the changes of temperature" : are they crazy ?

large-printed the smallprint, just for you Wink

I'm leaning towards 'incorrect', as the same price is being applied to the Avalon Mini, which was listed at BTC1.08 just the other day (itself a rather hefty price).  Webmaster snafu, I'd imagine Smiley

The Avalon Nano doesn't use the 3222. Pretty sure it has the previous-gen chip on it.

Got a new 28-135GH stick miner!

  • Added the missing CoinPal give-away version of the NanFury, added Bitshopper.de's version of the Compac (hopefully for sale soon), added an odd NanoFury-based miner that uses a QFN20 of the MCP2210 - if anybody has more information on that one, please do post – and updated some of the pictures.
  • Avalon have made further progress on the Avalon Nano 2 – however, as it attaches to the host device using a cable (it has USB port), it doesn't qualify as a StickMiner.



Aside: If you have, or will have, a GekkoScience / Bitshopper Compac and aren't sure where to mine - consider the Sidehack stick solo pool club

The BITMAIN Antrouter R1 is now also available.  It is a small (wall-wart sized) wireless router and miner (5.5Gh/s) in one, limited to mine at the Antpool solo pool.  If it catches your fancy and you can't / don't want to order from Bitmain directly, a group buy thread by ASICPuppy aimed at the U.S. (but will sell to anywhere, just keep i mind the U.S. style plug) has been set up, and a [url=https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1197840]group buy for Canada set up by Valkir is available as well

Once you get time Steve I think you should add this one.  It appears it is not very limited that pretty easy to get as far as Chinese market.

Only thing that stopped me from getting one to play with is it appears program is all in Chinese.  I did not see a English version.  I hope someone finds one of it though.

Would be cool if you added my scrypt stick to the thread. And I don't want to sound biased but I've seen that USB stick and its crap...its based on the old Zeus chip and overheats easily. That thing hashes at 220kh max if you can get it to not burn up, my stick starts off at 400kh at under 2 watts and goes up to 1mh.

Jstefanop's scrypt stick is probably your best bet for litecoin mining. I'm not sure on availability, but I believe CrazyGuy (asicpuppy.com) and holyscott (holybitcoin.com) have some if you can't get 'em from the manufacturer.

Thank you for the info, but it is just for the hobby : the chip BM1384 is completely outdated.
Waiting for a stick with a actual SHA256 chip...
Maybe yes, probably not.
