|Model||Antminer T15 (23Th)
Antminer is a brand and product line from Bitmain offering the same name for both bitcoin mining machines. Jihan Wu and Micree Zhan founded it in 2013.
The first product of Bitmain was the Antminer S1, an ASIC Bitcoin miner that produces 180 GH / s while using 360 Watts of power.
By 2018 it had become the world’s largest designer of application specific integrated circuit (ASIC) chips for bitcoin mining. The company also operates BTC.com and Antpool, historically two of the largest bitcoin mining pools.
Bitmain participated in the 2018 Bitcoin Cash split, side by side with Roger Ver on Bitcoin Cash ABC.

|Mineable Coins SHA-256|
|SHA-256 is a member of the NSA-designed SHA-2 cryptographic hash functions. SHA stands for the algorithm Secure Hash. Cryptographic hash functions are mathematical operations running on digital data; a person can determine the integrity of the data by comparing the computed hash (the output from executing the algorithm) to a known and expected hash value. It is possible to generate a one-way hash from any data piece, but the data can not be generated from the hash.|
