Does somebody still remember the Gridseed ASIC miners that could dual-mine BTC and LTC a few years ago? Well, it seems that a new dual mining ASIC miner is coming from Baikal Miner that is capable of mining two different algorithms at the same time. The new Baikal Miner BK-D supports Blake256R14 or Blake256R8 as first algorithm with 280 GHS hashrate and LBRY or Pascal as second algorithm with 70 GHS. You can have the miner mine any of the two pairs of algorithms simultaneously at 1100W of power usage total.
There is still no information about pricing and availability however, Biakal Miner have just announced their new device and it is yet to even become listed on the official company website. Doesn’t seem like too profitable at the moment, so it is more of an interesting product as we did not have dual miners in the fork of ASICs for quite some time. Availability and pricing of the device can make all the difference, so we need to wait and see what they will be.
