New York, NY-Monday 12 June 2023

(GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The crypto market has recently witnessed the emergence of the world’s first plug-and-play crypto miners that can be used without any prior mining knowledge or experience. Bitmanu’s BM1, BM2, and BM Pro miners allow users to start mining simply by connecting to the internet via Wi-Fi or Cable and entering the pool data or choosing Bitmanu’s free mining pool.

Some noted industry experts believe that the hash powers of these rigs can’t be matched by any other existing product. As a direct consequence of their hash-rates, Bitmanu miners are super-efficient in terms of earning rewards by processing transactions.
