Cryptocurrency mining develops rapidly like any high tech sector. Improvements in the hardware and auxiliary systems make it possible to design mining rigs that are more compact and silent than they used to be, while also profitable to run. Zigmabit is a manufacturer that assembles units suitable for mining not only in industrial-scale datacenters but also at homes and offices.

Three Zigbit Miner Models Available
Zigmabit, which is headquartered in Tokyo, Japan and maintains manufacturing facilities in the United Kingdom and Germany, recently introduced its new mining rigs that come in three models and are capable of operating under multiple algorithms. Zigmabit also promises potential customers full return on their investments within only a month and says the units are designed for both experienced users and beginners.
The miners come in three different models and prices, depending on the capacity and application, and all of them are easy to use as they are pre-configured – you only need to plug them in, enter the pool data and start mining. The rigs are equipped with a direct liquid closed-loop cooling system, noiseless fans, silent high-pressure pumps, efficient radiators, and other smart features that make them appropriate for operation in living and working spaces.
Two small configurations are perfect for use by individuals. The Zigbit 2.0 miner ($3,500) is a 500 x 400 x 760 mm unit with a 110V-240V socket and power consumption of 600W. It can mine bitcoin core (BTC) and 260 TH/s, litecoin (LTC) at 44 GH/s, ethereum (ETH) at 11 GH/s, and dash at 6 TH/s. Zigbit 3.0 ($5,000) supports the same currencies. Power consumption is also similar but its processing capacity is better – 330 TH/s for BTC, 55 GH/s for LTC, 14 GH/s for ETH, and 9 TH/s for dash. Its dimensions are 600 x 435 x 960 mm.
The compact units are equipped with 7nm ASIC Zigmabit Booster X chips, RJ45 Ethernet and wireless connection and dual 48VDC pumps. The noise they generate in operation is only 20 dB. The rigs can be controlled and monitored via a touchscreen on the front side. Although they are multi-algorithm devices, Zigbit 2.0 and 3.0 can only mine one digital coin at a time with an option to switch between cryptocurrencies. Zigmabit claims that mining dash with the Zigbit 2.0 miner will return a daily profit of $171, while using the unit for BTC mining will bring $64.80. Profitability is higher with Zigbit 3.0, between $86.40 for litecoin and $221 for dash.
Flagship Miner Comes With Safe Liquid Cooling System
Zigbit 5.0, the lineup’s flagship, provides the highest hash rate power – 2,000 TH/s (BTC), 300 GH/s (LTC), 75 GH/s (ETH), and 50 TH/s (dash). The device uses 7nm ASIC Zigmabit Booster X chips and its power consumption is 2,400W. Despite its larger size, 610 x 920 x 1,830 mm and stronger construction with a total weight of 120 kg, the unit is equipped with casters and leveling feet allowing easy installation and stabilization, which means it can be placed anywhere.
The rig has been designed to be fault-tolerant and according to Zigmabit, potential risks associated with the liquid cooling system have been eliminated. “The coolant is delivered to the ASIC and manifolds under negative pressure on both the supply and return so coolant cannot leak out,” the company explains on the product’s page. Zigbit 5.0 uses Linux and Zigmabit open source software and comes with an extended 36-month warranty, compared to 12 months for the two smaller devices.
The stated daily profitability of the model ranges between $476.40 for litecoin and $1,371.88 for dash. Mining BTC should earn $564.80 a day while using the rig to mint ETH is expected to return $1,034.78 in 24 hours. The unit’s regular price of $23,999 is currently reduced to $19,200, a 20% discount. Zigmabit delivers worldwide and accepts crypto payments.
After a period of increased industrialization, products like the Zigbit miners are now likely to bring cryptocurrency mining back to private homes and business offices, providing additional income to families and companies. Besides, they can be operated without the excessive noise and heat associated with older mining systems.
Zigmabit, whose team comprises of professionals with a background in companies like Samsung and IBM, is looking to expand its customer base in a niche where others like Hotmine, Qarnot, and Comino offer their own cool solutions as well. With modest investment needed and little maintenance required, all that their clients need to do is choose a profitable mining pool.
