If you visit this CoinWarz link: Scroll down until you find the coins with Scrypt written below their icon on the left. There should be about 30 of them. At the time of writing, Gulden appears to be the most profitable one to mine. I would suggest finding a pool which will auto-direct your hashpower towards the most profitable Scrypt coin or allow multimining. What pools are you working in? Would you share that info? Can I just use an Antminer or another Bitcoin miner to mine ether?
Without being too technical.
Ethereum mining process is designed to be Asic resistant. Ethereum uses different proof-of-work algorithm. Antminer is for bitcoin. Antminer asic is doing sha Ethereum does not uses sha ASICs can be made for anything.
Or you can check the subreddit: There will not be a dedicated i. Besides, Ethereum will ethereum switch to PoS, which would make such a antminer obsolete, if it existed. You theoretically couldbut it would be waayyyyy less efficient than using a graphics card. You can probably mine something valuable with it though.
