Following the release of Baikal Giant-N, there appeared one more ASIC under the Cryptonight algorithm, Bitmain released the Antminer X3. It is better than an ASIC from the company Baikal more than 11 times in performance, 3 times more expensive and 8 times more consumes electricity.

Let’s see what the payback, for calculations we use the site, Whattomine:

At the moment, the biggest profit per day is $ 253, which is $ 7,590 per month, in principle, it will almost pay for the resources expended (except for electricity).

Buying is extremely profitable, but there is one nuance, Monero and several crypto currencies are switching to the V7 algorithm, so there is a high probability that buyers will remain with scrap.

At the moment, the network of the Cryptonight algorithm, if purely hypothetical, consists of: 1 400 000 Radeon 580 or 700 000 Radeon Vega or 70 000 asics Baikal. To double it you need only 6300 Antminer X3.
