How long will an antminer last?

The Antminer s9 is going to be obsolete soon. A well-maintained ASIC usually lasts between 3 and 5 years, although it is not uncommon for it to last longer. If you're looking for a ballpark figure, you should assume that a GPU has at least 3 years of life. Even 10 years is not unheard of.

Until recently, mining was not ideal for the average person, as China's cheap electricity allowed it to dominate the mining market. But that has changed since China banned mining in their country. Even with this recent change, if you want bitcoins then you're better off buying bitcoins. Bitmain - Bitmain manufactures the AntMiner line of Bitcoin miners.

Bitmain is based in Beijing, China, and also operates a mining pool. The Antminer S17 and Antminer S17 Pro are two great options for the professional miner, especially if purchased directly from the manufacturer.
