Bitmain, or one of the global leaders responsible for manufacturing the vast majority of all ASIC mining devices, is now releasing two new internet routers that will mine the cryptocurrencies Dash and Siacoin.

Also known as ‘the biggest crypto company’, Bitmain announced the launch in a tweet shared online, mentioning the new miners which are known as the Antrouter R3-DASH and Antrouter R3-SIA. They will both function as internet routers that can mine cryptocurrencies while using the devices’ idle processing power. Moreover, they are both models from the R3 router collection by Bitmain which already has a R3 Litecoin Mining Router in it.

Earlier this year, the second largest manufacturer of mining equipment, Canaan Creative, launched the AvalonMiner Insider which is a smart TV that doubles as a Bitcoin mining device with a capacity to process 2.8 trillion hashes per second.

As the product page of the Antrouter R3-DASH outlines, the router was designed to mine DASH. However, Bitmain said that it can also mine other X11 coins but “Cannot guarantee the performance or efficiency of the R3-DASH when used to mine X11 coins other than DASH.”

The second router, or the R3-SIA, has been tested and designed to mine Siacoin (SC). Just like the R3-DASH, it can also mine other blake (2b) coins but the company said that it cannot guarantee the performance for mining cryptocurrencies other than Siacoin.

The company is expected to ship the miners out within 10 working days, where customers will have a personal Bitmain account setup and start mining in Bitmain’s Antpool.

On the other hand, there are only a few Oscillators and one of the most surprising examples of such a coin is Dogecoin (DOGE). The cryptocurrency was made as a joke and is now ranked at number 30 by its market capitalization and is considered as an Oscillator. Woo says that Dogecoin proves the store of value properties and to qualify, the coins have to keep up with Bitcoin/USD gains. In order to find oscillators, the coin has to oscillate around a horizontal line for at least one full bull-bear cycle which is around every four years but more than one cycle is better.

crypto books
Despite the fact that there’s still no sign for an Amazon cryptocurrency, crypto books are best sellers for 2020 as we are reading further in the coming altcoin news today. Cryptocurrencies are still a major trend in 2020 and the entire market capitalization once again reached $300 billion which was seen six months ago as well. What is most interesting is that it’s not just the price of Bitcoin that is increasing over time since the altcoins are exploding as well. Of course, when the prices of altcoins increase, it increases the retail interest as well. Crypto books are now again in the mainstream while the Google searches are going up as well. Plenty of bitcoin and crypto books are trading and are reaching Amazon’s best-seller list for 2020. Maybe with the ever-increasing popularity, the online retail giant will consider the amazon cryptocurrency again. Amazon is the largest retailer in the world and it is the biggest marketplace for books and e-books. Writers across the world are using this platform to market their writings and to reach a bigger audience. More than 20 percent of the books are related to bitcoin and cryptocurrency. The author of one of the books, Nik Patel, recently ranked #3 on the list but it is also worth noting that the list is updated every hour but the number of books is still notable. This shows that there’s a lot of interest from retail investors as well. As the prices of crypto increase, the interest in investing in crypto also increases every day. These investors are referred to as retail because they don’t have specific knowledge on the matter and they don’t classify as institutions. As per the recent altcoin news reports, the ‘’buy bitcoin’’ key phrase surged to a new high last seen in June 2019 which is a very important price level because it shows interest in buying Bitcoin rather than learning more about it. Bitcoin searches are also increasing and this is only an indicator that people follow the price of the altcoin. Cryptocurrencies are charting a lot of gains since the start of 2020 and they show no signals of slowing down. Most of the major altcoins received double-digit profits since the start of the year.
