The Whatsminer M10 is a SHA-256 miner (bitcoin, bitcoin cash) scheduled to be released on October 15th 2018. These units offer 33 TH/s delivered by 2150W of power making them more powerful and efficient than the Antminer S9, but not more than a few other miners slated to be released in the near future. They are also purportedly releasing a later, more powerful version called the M10S which will sport a hash rate of 55 TH/s for 3500W.
We think the likelihood that these are legitimate miners is high, but the profitability may not last long in the next paradigm of next-generation miners.
At 2150W, the Whatsminer M10 is an ideal choice for colocation. This unit performs optimally when using 208, 220 or 240V power sources which are often difficult or impossible to find at residential locations. The miner produces a lot of heat so it is best run in a location with a managed climate.

About Pangolin Whatsminer
Pangolin Miner is a manufacturer of cryptocurrency mining ASICs located in Shenzhen, China. It was started by Yang Zuoxing, the former director of design part at Bitmain’s hardware engineering division.
The Pangolin Whatsminers lines of miners purportedly leverage 16nm ASICs, and will release two new miners – the M10 and a higher wattage M10S. The Whatsminer M10 yields 33 THS for 2145 Watts and its heavier sister, the M10S will theoretically yield 55 TH/s for 3500W. The first batch is set to ship on October 25th, 2018 and the second in November.
As of late 2018, Whatsminers has been encroaching on Bitmain’s turf by offering a portfolio of mining algorithm ASICs, between the release of their SHA-256 bitcoin miners and their forthcoming decred miners.
