Uh..I'm not sure if it's allowed to ask this kind of question here but anyway...
I saw some comments at other forum said that theoretically it's possible to use like antminer s9 from bitmain to mine other SHA-256 based altcoin, and I'm wondering how to do it practically.
There is a place for SD card on S9 so I was thinking will it be just like what we do to GPU miners. We download mining software from mining pool, save it to the SSD, and run it.
So I checked those S9 set-up tutorial but it seems like I was wrong, there wasn't any step including download anything from mining pool.
Did anyone here try similar things before?
And I know that this kind of ASIC miners are optimized for certain kind of coins. But for example, is S9 optimized for bitcoin or for SHA-256 algorithm?
Thanks a lot.
