Over the last year, the Cathedra Bitcoin Team has pioneered the use of aftermarket firmware to get the most out of it’s machines. These tools are now available through CathedraOS. This firmware is specifically for Bitmain X19 series machines and allows for much greater control of ASICs. We have found that underclocking using this firmware can improve efficiency (joules per terahash) by as much as 36%. This firmware comes with a 3% fee taken in the form of hash rate.
