Biwang Electronic BW-L21 Scrypt ASIC

If you remember a while ago we have talked about the 550 MHS BW-L21 Litecoin (Scrypt) ASIC Miner as an interesting alternative to Bitmain’s AntMiner L3+ Scrypt ASICs. Unfortunately back then these were hard to order as there was a minimum order quantity of 100 units and not an easy and straightforward way to order them. This is apparently about to change as the manufacturer of the devices Biwang Electronic Commerce Co. (BW) has appointed the Australian company Block Assets Limited trading as HyperBit as their Worldwide Retail Distributor for the L21 ASIC miner. So finally some competition for BitMain in the home mining segment and more options for the small miners to get back into the Litecoin mining…

You can currently order the 550 MHS BW-L21 Litecoin ASIC miner from HyperBit at a price of $2690 USD in single unit quantities and get it delivered worldwide with a shipping set to start on 30th of November for the current batch of miners. The L21 is apparently the current leader in terms of performance Litecoin Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) miner on the market with 550 MHS hashrate and with just 900W of power usage. It is not clear what the situation with the power supply is at this point however, is there one included (no mention), but a PSU does appear on one of the product photos. Most likely you would need to buy the PSU separately, one that does provide at least 1000W of power and comes equipped with at least 6x 6-pin PCI-E power connectors. Do note that all orders are being shipped directly from the manufacturers location – Shenzhen, China.
