One of the 5 pieces of information that marked the debate on Bitcoin mining in Latin America was the regulatory provision in Venezuela. Published last Monday, September 21 in Official Gazette number 41,969, it dictates a series of measures for compliance by miners.

It states that, Those who exercise Bitcoin mining and are not part of a national pool created by the State, will be sanctioned. Apparently, all miners will be required to connect their equipment to a pool of which no further details have been known.
Canaan Creatives presents its winning horse
The manufacturer of Bitcoin mining equipment, Canaan Creatives, entered the ranking of the most important information of the week for its new model. It is the first machine in the A12 series and whose name is AvalonMiner 1246.
This powerful equipment, which mines 90 TH / s, seems to be an attempt by the Chinese company to enter the strong competition. As explained in CryptoTrend, Western customers demand high-efficiency equipment, that is, they consume little energy and have high hash power.
In this sense, the champions are Bitmain and MicroBT. However, with this Avalon, Canaa Creatives is looking to earn a position. The efficiency of this new model is 38 J / Hs.
RTX 3090 is “a beast”To mine Ethereum
Recently in CryptoTrend, we offered information about a recent model of NVIDIA card. It was at that time, the GeForce RTX 3080, which would have a limited edition and a power to mine ETH not inconsiderable.
Less than a month later, the company announces that an even better model is close to hitting the market. This is the RTX 3090. When compared to previous editions like the RTX 2080, the differences are abysmal.
Thus, the RTX 2080 mines ETH with a power of between 30 and 40 MH / s. For their part, the RTX 3080 and 3090, do so at 80 and 120 MH / s, respectively. The controversy has not been absent. The high demand for these cards by miners will make it very difficult for anyone else to access them.
