An overview of techniques for boosting Bitcoin miner hashing power
- Bitcoin mining has entered a stage where the margin can reach 80% while the lead-time for new machines takes more than a year.

- But maximizing profits comes with potential problems. In this piece, we take a look at various techniques for hashrate boost and what pros and cons should be taken into account.
