Walmart Sellers Now Listing $6,000 Bitcoin Mining Machines

Gone are the days of waiting in a six-month queue or paying thousands of dollars to an ASIC miner. If you want an ASIC miner today, you can get it directly from Walmart ( Bitcoin magazine (opens in new tab)). Granted, they aren’t cheap by any means, but some have come down in price.

Bitcoin has been trending downward in recent months. The cryptocurrency started the year at around $47,000 in January, but dropped to around $20,000 in November. Optimistic miners continue to be keen on mining despite the falling price of Bitcoin, but these are multi-million dollar companies with tons of mining equipment. Unfortunately, given the difficulty of mining Bitcoin, it’s too late for the average Joe to jump on the mining bandwagon.

China’s ban on cryptocurrency mining has forced many sellers to take refuge in Walmart and offload ASIC miners. Walmart’s marketplace has devices from all the big names, including Bitmain, Goldshell, and Canaan. Of course, it’s not just ASIC miners. Third-party sellers also market control boards, individual he ASIC chips, cables, connectors, and other knick-knacks needed to set up a mining operation.
