Biostar Launches Cryptocurrency Motherboard Plug and Mine Solution
Ashley Allen / 5 years ago
Biostar is riding that cryptocurrency mining trend all the way to the bank. Indeed, the Taiwanese company is launching a new crypto ‘Plug and Mine’ solution. To that end, Biostar is partnering with ethOS, the OS which mines Ethereum out-of-the-box. The ethOS operating system can also mine ZCash and Monero, plus other GPU-minable coins. So, what makes this Plug and Mine? Specifically, Biostar is putting ethOS on a USB flash drive.
BIOSTAR’s Price-Performance Mining Setup with ethOS
The ethOS Mining System is one of the most straight-forward operating systems for mining ZCash, Monero, Ethereum and other GPU-minable coins. The setup is simple Plug-and-Mine, without needing a SSD. When paired with BIOSTAR mining boards, building a heavy yet stable mining rig of up to 12 GPUs can be done with ease. These have been tried and tested by both BIOSTAR and ethOS.
