Canaan Creative launches an ASIC that regulates its temperature with dielectric oil
Bitcoin mining by immersion is one of the most outstanding techniques when it comes to saving resources in the long term. It eliminates the operating costs of air-conditioned cooling, regular maintenance, noise and significantly reduces energy consumption.
The problem with dipping is that it is very expensive to install and represents a considerable initial capital expense that not everyone can afford. In response to this, Canaan Creative, launched a revolutionary machine that self-regulates its temperature, not with air, but with mineral oil.
It is the „Avalon Immersion Cooling A1066“. With this equipment that mines up to 50 TH/s, important operating costs are saved, which could position Canaan close to its rivals in the market.
Among the most outstanding news of the week, the new Bitcoin mining machine launched by the manufacturer Canaan Creative stands out. The main quality of this ASIC is that it self-regulates its temperature with dielectric oil.

This forces the miners to sell their bitcoins to the central bank exclusively at rates set by the financial institution. In addition, the electricity rates against the miners have been increased in a staggered manner.
Under these premises, many miners have chosen to go underground. In response, the government has implemented a $450 reward plan. These are given to people who help the authorities close down farms that are classified as „illegal“.
