Antminer S3 Profitability Mining Calculator
Released in July 2014, The Antminer S3, really started the ASIC momentum of 2014 and brought us to where we are now. Bitmain was very successful and many became millionaires who mined heavily during this time with the S3 Antminers. Since then, however, difficulty has risen significantly to the point where this miner which only mines at 478 Gh/s has not become almost extinct in the wild. With its terrible low hashing rate, most people have stopped mining, but some people still mine using this old technology. Those with free power or nearly free power might leave these running, but the majority of us who pay over 8 cents Kw/h ($.08) shouldn't be running these unless you like paying for power unnecessarily! Profitability on the S3 isn't so great and that's why we've slapped a profitability rating of 1 star on this ASIC miner. However, with all this gloom and doom, you still can earn around $.20-1/day with this miner running at full hashing rate. Profitability for this miner is almost unprofitable and we advise going with the S7 and above models. The S3 Antminer mines BCH and BTC at this time. The S3 will mine either BCH or BTC at a time on all 3 hashing boards. For exact Antminer S3 profitability and earnings, please see below to calculate:
