All Antminer Features in Awesome Miner Available for Use with Awesome Miner Antminer Firmware
All operations can be performed immediately on a large number of miners.
Awesome Miner licenses are not required for miners using firmware versions with 3% mining commission
Mining Fee [DEV FEE]
Mining fee [DEV FEE] The firmware has a mining fee of 2% or 3% (on average, slightly lower, about 1.8% and 2.8%)
The mining fee is based on the concept of parallel mining in order to avoid any interruptions in normal mining.
A firmware with a 3% mining fee includes an Awesome Miner license and does not use any of the licenses available in Awesome Miner. This allows you to run Awesome Miner and cloud services without paying a license if you use firmware with a 3% mining fee.
It is recommended to install the firmware through Awesome Miner. Awesome Miner can install Awesome Miner firmware on compatible Antminers, including Antminers with SSH access disabled and firmware signature verification enabled. The only exceptions are:
Antminer S9 running Bitmain firmware since July 2019 – SD card required for installation
Antminer L3 + running Bitmain firmware since July 2019 – SD card required for installation
Antminer S17 / T17 has been running Bitmain firmware since December 2019 – an SD card is required for installation
Antminer S17 + / T17 + – requires an SD card to install
To install the firmware through Awesome Miner, go to the toolbar:
Tools -> ASIC Tools -> Update Firmware.
The firmware can be selected from the list, and Awesome Miner will automatically download and install the firmware on all selected miners.
Version: 7.6.0, Released: May 06, 2020
Awesome Miner is a Windows application for managing and monitoring mining of Bitcoin and many other crypto currencies.

An easy way to get started and achieve better hashing performance is to use one of the predefined mining profiles. You can configure your mining profile through Awesome Miner or the Antminer web interface.
Awesome Miner: Go to the toolbar: Tools -> ASIC Tools -> Firmware mining profile
Antminer web interface: Go to Miner Configuration -> Mining profiles
Why does the Antminer web interface not work properly after updating the firmware?
Please hold down the Ctrl key and click the Reload button in the web browser or use the key combination Ctrl + F5. This will clear any cache of the old firmware user interface and solve the problem. For more information, see the Wikipedia Guide for a complete reload of a web page.
If the mining profile is configured for a full reboot, the miner can reboot it on its own in order to better configure or fix ineffective mining chips. It is expected that the miner will reboot several times the first time you use the firmware. If the state of the chip is really bad, it is recommended to limit the frequency that the firmware will use for the chip. In the miner’s web interface go to “Miner Configuration” -> “Chip Auto Tune” and set “Minimum Freq” to 400.
What is the mining fee?
The firmware has a built-in mining board to support firmware development. The purpose of the firmware is to provide significantly better hash performance, more features, and improved integration with Awesome Miner, which makes mining fees very affordable.
The mining fee is 2% or 3%, depending on the firmware. Example: with a common hash bit of 15TH / s and 2% mining fee, not more than 0.3TH / s will be used for mining fee.
The mining fee consists of two pools called DevFee, which work in parallel. These two pools work with a very low level of complexity, which leads to a large number of accepted shares. A large number of stocks does not mean that DevFee pools accept the entire hashrate – this is the result of a low level of complexity for each stock.

Ethereum 2.0 has a unique system that includes blockchain ETH in smart contracts as a validator. This allows participants to be rewarded for verifying and validating blocks in the network. With the launch of the new version of the network, blockchain will be enabled using the Proof-of-Stake (PoS) consensus algorithm.
