ASIC Miner (ASIC Mining)

    An application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) miner is a type of computerized mining rig used to mine bitcoin (BTC) and other cryptocurrencies. Originally, crypto mining rigs were designed to mine cryptocurrency using a central processing unit (CPU) on a laptop or personal computer, but GPU miners — and then ASIC miners — eventually outperformed this traditional model. ASIC miners are designed and manufactured specifically to complete the mining process much faster and more efficiently than traditional computers.
