The ASIC Price Index reflects the current price per TH of different Bitcoin mining ASICs grouped by three efficiency tiers.
Luxor calculates the ASIC Price Index by averaging each unit price based on its nominal hashrate output. They group together different ASIC models into different efficiency tiers based on their power efficiency and display each efficiency in terms of $ per TH. Each Bitcoin mining ASIC listing they use in the index is vetted through a confidence interval using previous index values and our proprietary algorithm.
The three efficiency tiers:
- Under 38 joules/TH (38 J/TH) includes the latest generation Bitcoin mining ASICs like Bitmain’s Antminer S19, S19j and S19 Pro units and MicroBTC’s Whatsminer M30s, M30s+ and M30s++ models, among others.
- 38-to-68 J/TH includes mid-generation ASICs like Bitmain’s AntminerS17 and T17 series and MicroBT’s Whatsminer M20, M21 and M32 series models, among others.
- Over 68 J/TH includes old-generation ASICs like Bitmain’s Antminer S9, T9, S11 and T15 series and MicroBT’s Whatsminer M10 series, among others.
