By the end of 2024, Bitcoin price is expected to reach $100,000! The crypto bull market is back

By the end of 2024, Bitcoin price is expected to reach $100,000! The crypto bull market is back. Bitcoin, the top cryptocurrency, could hit $100,000 by the end of 2024, according to a report by Jeff Kendrick, head of digital asset research at Standard Chartered Bank. By the end of 2024, we could see Bitcoin (BTC) reaching the $100,000 level , as we believe the much-hyped "crypto winter" is finally over. According to Kendrick, Bitcoin could benefit from many factors. For example, recent instability in the banking sector due to the end of the Fed's rate hike cycle and the increased profitability of cryptocurrency mining. As uncertainty persists, Kendrick believes the path to the $100,000 level is becoming more apparent. Bitcoin has bounced back this year, topping $30,000 for the first time in 10 months. However, the crypto industry lost trillions of dollars in 2022 after the Fed raised interest rates. Observers Are Arguing About Bitcoin Standard Chartered isn't the only

Antminer T15 disassembly evaluation

Antminer T15 disassembly evaluation On November 8, 2018, Bitmain released marketing information, announcing the launch of its first 7nm chip Antmiminer T15. It supports the SHA256 algorithm and has two versions: high performance and low power modes. Miner parameters model high performance low power modes hash rate 23TH/s ± 2% 17.5TH/s ± 2% ~ 21TH/s ± 2% energy consumption 1541w ± 7% 1050w ± 7% ~ 1260w ± 7% power efficiency 67 J/T(25°C condition) 60 J/T(25 °C condition) Exterior Packaging: No logo on the top, shell size: 486*388*265mm, with ZEUS logo tape around it. Unpacking: Remove the EPE foam on the top; you can see that the T15 has changed the ESD package, which is different from the S9 series. Miners in the box: The power board is integrated with the miners, and the dual fans are parallel to the air, as shown in the figure below: Top and front: Pool and Miner Setup For the installation settings of Antminer T15, please refer to the Antminer T15 Manual on the Support-Asic Miner Manu
