ASIC VS GPU miner

In terms of mining, there are numerous methods used in order to mine cryptocurrencies. The two most popular method of mining is done through the method of ASIC and GPU mining.

ASIC miners are purpose-built to do one thing and one thing it does best, mine cryptocurrencies based on the algorithm it utilizes. Such as the popular cryptocurrency Bitcoin (BTC) or Bitcoin Cash (BCH), which both utilizes the SHA256 algorithm. ASIC miners are able to solve complex mathematical problems needed that is an integral part that ensures fairness while keeping the network stable, safe and secure. Other cryptocurrencies utilize different algorithms, and there are specific ASIC miners produced to mine those most efficiently.

Graphic processing units (GPU) is a computer chip that can calculate cryptocurrencies regardless of the algorithm it uses, making more flexible in the market, however the hash power it possesses is a less compared to ASIC miners running on the network.
