Avalon A1246 – Antminer S17 “killer”
Canaan made a gift to all miners in 2020, opening the possibility of buying an ASIC miner for Bitcoin mining at speeds almost identical to Antminer S19 – the Bitmain supermodel. At the same time, the cost of the released Avalon A1246 was much lower than that of its competitor.
The appearance of the Canaan flagship “killed” the Antminer S17 theme, whose hashrate turned out to be quite lower than that of A1246.

Advantages of A1246
The Canaan flagship model is traditionally equipped with a controller with intelligent protection, developed by the company. The built-in K210 chip with the help of artificial intelligence protects the user from fraudulent and hacker attacks, theft of funds and viruses.
The Avalon A1246 miner is ready to launch out of the box, without requiring additional assembly. The setup of the miner is quite simple and is described in a special manual posted on the manufacturer’s website. The form factor of the miner allows you to operate the ASIC miner on standard racks in a horizontal or vertical position.
- Undeveloped service network
