Bitfury, an important Bitcoin mining manufacturer, has recently opened an online store to sell its products to both small and medium enterprises (SMEs). At the moment, the equipment available on the store includes several of the newest models, including Clarke ASIC chips, BlockBox AC mining machines, and the new B9 Tardis Mining Rig.
These mining machines cannot be bought in small quantities, though. A Clarke ASIC, for instance, costs $2,500 USD apiece and you have to buy at least 1,000 of them from the company to get them at this price. That’s an investment of 2 and a half million dollars.
B9 Tardis rigs are priced at $3,300 and you need to buy several of them, also. If you want real power, though, you can buy a BlockBox AC for around half a million dollars. The “mobile” mining machine is huge and you will need a place large enough to store it, as it is over 40 feet in length.
Before now, Bitfury was mostly interested in sales for large corporate clients. Now, the company seems to be entering the field of SMEs and individuals as well, which is an interesting move.
This will probably make the hash rate of the market grow quite a lot, though. As the process was already happening before this announcement, the hash rate will probably grow even more. Prices should follow it, as they tend to do, which may lead to the next big bull run.
