AntRouter .... LOL did Bitmain mean to publicize this?


#1


#2

I think “internal sales” is China, so probably yes they did but not sure about the sanity of publishing the email addresses…


#3

debates submitting a bug to see if he can get a reward :smile:


#4

yes, I though that was a bit strange also, so what will these things do exactly other then perform as any other router?


#5

I think the thought was as a bitcoin lotto machine…
Constantly humming along in the hope it solo mines a block?


#6

That’s pretty much the idea, I think. If they made it capable of joining a pool then they’ve got a winning product.

Better than anything 21inc have come up with so far lol


#7

Solo miner on Antpool and cell phone charger as well as router.


#8

I dont know what it is exactly but I want one :slight_smile:


#9

New cheap toys, much happiness :smile:


#10

Those email names remind me of this…


#11

These will sell fast, cheap cheap miners all around.


#12

Looks like it can only mine solo and into your Bitmain account and you will be contacted if you dig a block… chances are something like 0.000000000000001 XPY

Would be way better to enable pool mining.

Then again, the 20 USD ANTMINER U3 BATCH 2 will be a better bet I reckon, 60 Ghash = $1.6 per 5Ghash. But can it internet. No. Afraid not. Does it need to? No. Afraid not :smiley:

EDIT: Its also taken down from sales site


#13

Not quite sure I like the idea of an unregulated chinese devise that more than likely has full control by bitmain running freely connected to the internet.


#14

Yeap could be a gadget idea from DefCon


#15

It just seems like it could be a direct link to any of your BTC wallets…


#16

Not to mention all your internet traffic flows through the device, so it’s the perfect way to spy on everything you’re doing.
I’m not a technical guy, but could a router also be used for malicious intent like sending packets of data to your network to infect it somehow?


#17

Yeap, enough concern for the military to stop doing business with Lenovo


#18

It popped up a while ago on Antpool and was quickly removed again.


#19

ITS ALIVE!!! lol


#20

I was tempted and then read 5.5GH/s and Antpool solo mode :smiley:

Although looking at the solo tab on Antpool I see this:
