5th place: Bitmain Antminer Z11. The power consumption of this ASIC is 1.4 kW. Bitmain Antminer Z11 costs about $2100, and its profitability is $200 per month. It runs on the Equihash algorithm and mines the Zcash cryptocurrency. Zcash is a good coin among the growing popularity of altcoins. It’s open-source, providing privacy and selective transparency of transactions. Zcash runs on a public blockchain, but the sender, recipient, and transaction amount remain secret.

4th place: Bitmain Antminer L3+. It mines Litecoin paired with Dogecoin on the Scrypt algorithm. The electricity consumption is 1.4 kW, and the power is 504 MH/s. The estimated profitability for this miner is $130 – $140 per month. Litecoin is also a coin with great potential, with its developers having enormous plans for Litecoin’s future. The cost of Bitmain Antminer L3+ at the moment is $1300.

3rd place: Innosilicon A10. The well-known ASIC for mining Ethereum, a second most popular coin and probably the first by its potential. This ASIC also consumes 1.4 kW of electricity, with a yield of approximately $46 per day.

2nd place: Bitmain Antminer Z15 runs on the Equihash algorithm and consumes 1.4 kW. The Z15 costs about $10,700, with a monthly income of $630. We put its younger brother (Antminer Z11) with the same power consumption in 5th place since Z11 is a budget version of Z15.

1st place: The winner is a new generation miner – Bitmain Antminer L7, intended for mining, Lightcoin & Dogecoin. This model consumes only 3.5 kW (the same as Bitmain Antminer S19) but has a $2300 monthly yield, and its price starts from $13.000. Antminer L7 is one of the top models in 2022.
