Can Bitmain S9 Mine Ethereum?

Yes, the Bitmain S9 can mine Ethereum. However, it is not the most efficient miner for Ethereum mining, as it has a hashrate of 14 TH/s and a power consumption of 1400 watts. The Antminer S9i (13.5 TH/s) and the Antminer S9j (14.

NOTE: Warning: Mining with the Bitmain S9 is not recommended for Ethereum. Ethereum’s PoW algorithm has been changed from Dagger-Hashimoto to ProgPoW, and the Bitmain S9 is not efficient enough to mine ProgPoW. Furthermore, the current Ethereum network difficulty is too high for the S9 to be competitive, and therefore it is unlikely that mining with an S9 will be profitable.

5 TH/s) are both more efficient miners for Ethereum mining, with hashrates of 13.5 TH/s and 14.5 TH/s respectively, and power consumptions of 950 watts and 1225 watts respectively.
