Hi Damir, 
There are multiple Antminer series on the market, with the S9 you can mine Bitcoin, with the L3 you can mine Litecoin. Antminers are designed in a way to make a specific cryptocurrency mining profitable since some altcoins have a different mining protocol it is not possible to mine different altcoins algorithms with the same Antminer. Ethereum has been designed in a way to be resistant to ASIC miners, here you can read more about Ethereum mining.
