Ever since, a series of companies have focused their efforts to build high power ETC specific ASIC mining machines. One of those companies has been Bitmain, who also has invested $10,000,000 in a grants fund to finance projects on the now largest proof of work smart contracts blockchain in the world.

In this post we show the Bitmain Antminer E9 Pro ASIC miner unboxing, connection, setup, how to start mining, and stats.
