$1188,00

Delivery end of Oktober.

I'm still a bit hesitant though, since I've read alot of negative feedback on Baikal and their trustworthiness... any of you have some experience with them?

"Support for X13, X14 and X15 is not available on this device, but there is a mention of a future update that will add 4 new algorithms."
look promising to me, and the price is awesome in my opinion comparing to all the previous baikal products...anyway, i'm going to get one or two

"The miner will supposedly be available at a price of $1188 USD with deliveries starting by the end of October"

So what you think they are scamming us now? I dont see how this is too good to be true, they are still at ~1200
D3 is 16g vs thier 10 , even though it can mine two other algos , but it cant mine as many as the giant can or even the cubes so its probably more in developmwnt and might need more updates etc

$1200 for 10gh is inline with what bitmain is charging $1600 for 15gh

Just thing about it.

They knew Bitmain sold D3's for a while, but they refused to adjust the Giant+ accordingly. But now, this machine does 5 times the speed of a Giant+ and is a 1/3 of the price?! Something is just really off here!


Title: Re: Baikal Giant X10
Post by: Truthchanter on September 12, 2017, 05:15:49 PM
I trust Baikal. I have ordered a handful of baikal miners (original a900 giant, cube, giant+, and just ordered a giant x10) All of the orders I've made with them were through skype, except the cube which I think i ordered through the website.

I paid btc for most of the miners but they only accepted usd wire transfer for the giant+ at the time I ordered that so I paid that way for that one.

Post by: Allats on September 12, 2017, 06:16:54 PM
It is kind of fishy though... As some say in the thread, their site has not been updated in order for the public to be notified besides the only bank wire payment.
Another really troubling thing is that they ask not to mention miner and baikal on the bank wire..Plus, money goes to a ''VITCORE HOLDINGS LIMITED''. Does this look legit to you?

I can confirm VICTORE HOLDINGS LIMITED, singapore bank is baikal official bank to wire funds.
As much i feel i dont like the way they handle business dealings, and will never do any business with them again.
But nothing fishy here, ive wired for past purchase but things didnt go as planned. I recieved my funds back with no issues.

*edit they remind you not to mention miners or bitcoin is because banks can refuse your transfer for purchasing miners.


Title: Re: Baikal Giant X10
Post by: HagssFIN on September 12, 2017, 07:09:33 PM
I asked Baikal via e-mail if they would be interested in me doing a review here at the forum to bring people exact information about this miner and the mining experience with it.


Title: Re: Baikal Giant X10
Post by: jb7032 on September 12, 2017, 07:31:20 PM
I do think it's legit. I just hope they put my order through before all the sharks swallow them up. I've been trying to get back into mining for a couple weeks and this is the first thing that seems attainable. I tried bitmain pre orders but couldn't make it through the website.


Title: Re: Baikal Giant X10
Post by: QuintLeo on September 12, 2017, 07:38:36 PM
Baikal has traditionally had good products but a really painful ordering process.

I suspect their X10 miner is going to be "too little, too late to the game" unless they can push it out the door with VERY quick turnaround - late October will be too late....

Allats were you able to actually get a order confirmation number and wire instructions? If you don't mind sharing, how many units were you ordering? I'm just wondering if they took larger orders first as I was only trying for 3 and it's been 5 hours since I emailed them my name, address, and order info.

I dont think much sharks will be biting on this batch.. ive gotten notice about this hardware for sale sometime ago already. And they are still available. So you will be able to purchase these no problem.
If your interested in d3 for end november batch. Shoot me a pm. Im looking to sell off some.

Our problem and actual subject in this thread, is to establish whether the whole thing is a scam  or not. The baikal site is not updated about the new machine, and there are  no news in the net in general. When a d3 gets released you read about it all over the place...

But they are not accepting btc as payment. Only bank wire to their bank account in singapore.. does not seem like any scam is going on here. Unless baikal is scamming. No hacked account if they are requesting payment through bank wire. I think alot of members here can confirm the bank account since the baikal quad cube was released.

Guys Baikal is as legit as legit can be... They have been around for a long time. Many of us here have had some of their miners since day one. I still have my mini 150mg/h still running almost 1.5yrs now. They have never scammed anyone, there have been multiple group buys here at bitcointalk. Only their customer service is not the best...but thats how chinese companies do business unfortunately.

They confirmed my query for 4 x Giant x10 this morning, after e-mailing them yesterday. I need to pay within 24 hours and e-mail them the transaction receipt + copy of passport.

However, I have never bought from them before (this is my first time buying a miner), and I am thinking maybe to buy just 2. I am a bit nervous about the payment going to this company Vitcore Holdings, with (here's the red flag:) their registered company address on the Marshall Islands... (Ajeltake road, Ajeltake Island, Majuro)

If someone would like 2 of mine, maybe that can be arranged (I am in Norway).

I still don't know. Haven't forgotten their actions on Giant+ miner. And this deal seems to good to be true. Common sense dictates that if a deal seems to good to be true, it mostly is.

 They're just being price competative, since they don't OWN the market any more they don't have a choice.

 I wouldn't say they've been around a VERY long time, but they do have a good reputation for their miners being as claimed (and a very POOR reputation for being a PITA to order stuff from).

Besides being PITA it seems that they developed a sort of selective preference....
I am saying that because it seems that some of use were able to get not one but 2 units while others ( me included ) didn't even get an answer with the price on email / skype.

Not a very long time at all, they are on the market for a little over 2 years.

yeah i tried to order 15 and they told me they only had 10 left so i ordered them

i like these miners better than the d3 becuase they can at least mine other algos iff x11 becomes
a deathtrap lol

Basically it will make X11 diff to the moon BUT you can get a lot of profit with Quark and Qubit since diff now so low..
Sadly, I cant trust company without real address, atleast not yet..

This is what I got from them 9 days ago asking about the Giant+ 2000Mh/s miner.

-------------------
Hi,
 
Thank you for you letter.
 
Now one Giant+ unit price could offer 3000usd.
Shipping date: within 3 days after confirm the payment.
Shipment by DHL/UPS if no specified request. nearly worldwide.
Payment could be BTC or Dash or LTC or bank wire.
 
any questions please let me know.
 
baikal miner
---------------------
My questions are :

1. If I order the current model (Giant X10), when I will receive the item? October? or 3 days after payment confirmed as they promise with the previous model?

2. Do you guys get the $1180 price through email as well? Its quite confusing since the previous model quoted to me for $3000.

Appreciate for any reply.

i was in buisness with 2 units, i ordered them right after the tweet 2 days ago.
but they forgot to attach the payment info and because they didnt want btc anymore i had to change the money back.
today i ask for the bankwire payment info but they tell me all miners are booked.
not very nice as i was one of the first to order. i asked them nicely to check my info since i was on order for the first batch.
its been 5h no reply yet.. maybe they are asleep or just dont care ^^

Hej guys i hope u can hell me.
I ordered 1 unit and they have me all the payment information top. But i  not able to send money from my Bank account so i decided to send it with Western Union Bank transfer. But to Singapore i can only send SGD Singapur Dollar. So do u think i can send to the account SGD and it will be auto changed to USD? Cause i would send 1606 SGD it 1192 USD. I write an E-Mail to baikal but still no answer and my 2 days are over tommorrow

If folks are still looking for these and want to take a chance I was able to order a couple from https://asicminermarket.com/product/baikal-giant-x10-dash-coin-miner/ last night. Never bought from them before but looking around seems legit.  The price last night was $2000, seems their inventory sold out and its now at $2550 with new set of inventory. But they do seem to have an active stock counter showing shipping end of October, so assume they just scooped up a bunch direct from Baikal and reselling. Gonna pay a little more for them but dang the 2000Mhs models are going for over $4k on ebay still.

Aside from the availability issue, looking at the specs, it says "12V 6pin connectors * 3", and according to the photo, I see 3 boards with each a single 6pin jack per board. So the x11 indicates 800watts, so 800w / 3 = 266watts per board per 6pin jack.

Is running 266watts 24/7 on a 6pin jack even safe? Isn't that the same issue Pandaminers had with their power supplies with too much current on their PCIE cables and the cables/jack melting?

Anyone else want to chime in?

Interesting. Normally the PCI-e slot would provide 75w and the 6 pin also 75 watt where as an 8 port will provide 150w power. Can the ports be of different gauge?

You may have some trouble supplying power to these. Can confirm as a long time user of Baikal that melting cables is an issue. Perhaps more so at 5x power of a Baikal Giant plus. :-\

Why didn't Baikal send out an email to old customers like usual?

Im surprised people are still paying in the range of $100/1gh for a X11 machine with the difficulty spikes that are coming online at the end of september and continue endlessly through to the new year. More power to you.

Im curious to see what the difficulty level is @ the end of September when Bitmain batch 1 is in customer hands & fully plugged in.



Title: Re: Baikal Giant X10
Post by: Alt.me on September 15, 2017, 02:09:09 AM
Bitmain probably been running what they are selling already for 6 months. I don't think difficulty is going to go up as quickly as what some speculate.  Regardless at least with the Baikal there are other profitable options beside X11.

The value of this baikal Giant X10 machine is not about X11 algo coins at all...
it is actually all about its capability of mining other algos, for now it can mine quark and qubit beside X11, and I am pretty sure that baikal will add X13, X14, and X15 to the future update (maybe software only)

Post by: neetneet on September 15, 2017, 05:46:54 AM

Can anyone from you guys post the full payment details here?

I tried several times paying with the details provided by baikal but my banks ( I tried 2 of them ) give "validation failure".
According to the bank officer this means  something is wrong or incomplete with the details provided for payment.
And of course baikal does not reply.Of fucking course.

That is entirely your decision.
I, for example, am not at all comfortable with any of the present miners becuase they have the warranty measured in days and not years like any other electrical device.

Try request a refund due to false promises, because you don't know when the second batch is even going be released. So by then, who knows where the difficulty will be at.

Just curious, when did you send proof of payment? On their website, it says "First sale is over, waiting for Second sale". Didn't know they were even taking second batches order.

Neeeah, it's not quite like that.
I've seen users around stating that they bought 2-3 units.
I've even seen users saying they bought the units with BTC or Dash transfers while Baikal stated they only allow wire transfers for purchasing.

Long time lurker, first time poster! (Be gentle)

Sent an email to Baikal about the x10 only having 3x 6-pin connectors and pulling 800W. Got a replay saying "you will need total six 6 Pin connectors to power one Giant X10".

Still not sure this is going to be enough connectors since each 6-pin is only rated at 75W. Anyone have experience with pulling more than 75W per connector? :-\

6 pin PCIe connectors can carry more than 75 watts.  18 gauge wire can theoretically carry up 10 amps each. There are 3 leads that are +12V on the 6 pin PCIe connector... so theoretically 12V x 10A x 3 feeds = 360 watts.

No manufacturer uses that maximum though, but that gives you an idea of what is possible.

No manufacturer uses that maximum though, but that gives you an idea of what is possible.

You are correct.
If we talk abou the 6+2 pci-e wires those can handle even more.

The main concern around baikal is: will those plastic connectors hold that type of energy / heat or will they melt ?!?

Sent an email to Baikal about the x10 only having 3x 6-pin connectors and pulling 800W. Got a replay saying "you will need total six 6 Pin connectors to power one Giant X10".

Still not sure this is going to be enough connectors since each 6-pin is only rated at 75W. Anyone have experience with pulling more than 75W per connector? :-\



Your main concern being that the mother port ( on the baikal ) or the father connector ( the one from the psu ) will melt or?
Be a bit more specific and maybe I can give you an answer

Yes, my concern would be melting one or both ends of the connectors, or pulling too much current through the 12V wires.
With 6 connectors, that's 133W each, nearly double the 75W they're rated at.
That said, an 8-pin connector is rated at 150W, so 130W through a six pin may be fine as long as the wires are sized for it.

All I know is my 800W L3+ takes 9 and this 800W Giant x10 only takes 6.  :o

Relax dude.You can always go to the bank and make a written request to return your money stating something like you paid but never received a product or something like that.It's some type of complaint.
You should go and ask to your bank what options you have.At least in my country it works like that
If they wanted such a legal way to transfer money then there are legal consequences.

But you should try to contact them via email / skype and wait a bit longer.
Hell you might as well wait for october to get that shipping quote email from them.

Currently on the product's page say:

1). Currently we only accept payment by BTC, DASH, LTC.


Has anyone paid with bitcoins? Is it better than bank transfer?


Of corse crypto is much better. With BTC I finished from order to confirmation of payment in less than 24 hours. Exchange rate was little bit off in their favor, but BTC was quite high priced so I'm OK with it.

finally got the confirmation email from baikal....
almost fifteen days... i even requested a trace for this long overdue international wire transfer... and figured out the receiving bank United Oversea Bank in Singapore is really really lousy, and slow...

but anyway, support from baikal on skype are pretty nice and patient, and responsive actually. and the email support is also fairly good i think...
this is my second purchase with them,,, will continue to support them ;D

there typical response
sorry  we will wait for news from our company.

I spoke yesterday with them because I've received no confirmation of paymeny.I did it more than 2 weeks ago.
They told me the same shit about being late with payment and being delayed to second batch.
Without knowing your full story I asked if it's possible to actually reserve units with partial payment from the second batch.
They said no.

Something is really not right here or the company / selling department is actually run by real retards.....I mean that kind of retard that has a medical certificate to prove it.

I paid $2800 for my Giant+ 2000 MH/s miner and I have a bad hash board on this unit.  The miner will stop mining or responding from 10 hours to 24 hours!  The board the PI came on would not work on the left hand side and finally I got it working by moving the PI board to the other red hash board. It started working but very unstable telling me that there is a problem with that one board at the very least.

They have looked at it but have refuses to fix it!  I reported it while it was still within 30 days on 9/8 and it's now 10/4 and I still have a very unreliable monitor!  Do not buy any of these units!

Edited: Sorry forgot to put in it's the previous generation one. and if they will not even support it I really doubt they will support X10. Better to stick with a more reliable company like Bitmain that will at least fix there defective units.

Sorry forgot to add it's the Giant+ 2000 MH/s.  After not getting this unit fixed that stops mining for over a damn month and still got a defective unit and they have not offered to send me a new hash board or anything we can't trust this company to repair anything.

I had to setup email alerts and if it goes down while at work I check during lunch I have to call someone to restart the miner. The device count going 0 is when it than locks up and the device count recovered is when I have restarted the unit. Look at the number of down times since 9/29.  Definitely not a reliable miner!

GUYS BE AWARE !!!

There might be a hacker or some group or whatever that hacks your baikal devices.
They somehow change your Scripta dashboard access password to their will and make the device mine for themselves.

So monitor your devices closely, no matter what generation they are.

Now a question for a more experienced baikal user: is there any way to change that Scrypta dashboard access password to a custom / complex one ? As far as I knew that was not possible a while ago.

Thanks

What solution do you want? All asics have a limited life time due to difficulty increases. It's always eventually going to drop to 0 or minus in terms of profit eventually.

My cubes have paid for themselves easily twice to 3 times over.

Sorry to tell you that.

Baikals should be making profit for a much longer timeframe than other asics do (because you have more algos to choose from)... you just paid too much and you bought one right before the next generation is shipping.. bad timing

They postponed me to the second batch also with the reason that my payment was late.
Indeed it was late but I asked them before making the payment if I am still good for the first batch and they said yes.

What should I do in your opinion: wait for the second batch or ask for a refund ?
Because arguing with them leads to nothing but a complete waste of time......

I'll wait for the 2nd batch if I were you and as we know its not easy to get your hands on those babes due to the limited quantities available for purchase.

Right now I'm seeing a 24 day ROI based on QUBIk/QUARK. Although these numbers are dropping super fast. Any thoughts why? Are their other NEW machines out there which can mine these algo's? There shouldn't be a reason why the d3's mining x11 make QUBIK and QUARK drop right?

They might've just switched the whole batch they're going to send out on for just a week to test?

Please find A solution for our baikal cubes , these devices are really dead i paid $2k for cube and making 60c a day
and i cant sell it half of that price anymore
please give us new firmware or update for other algorithm or at least a way for over-clock
im really sad

I am sorry to hear that but x10 will be the same. Delivering time is too late.

I guess he means that it will become obsolete in terms of profitability.
Of course it will, that's the fate of all ASIC / FPGA.
But anyone in mining knows that and takes the risk

Yeah, it all depends on timing and initial price. One month, or even a week or two can make the difference between ROI or not.

$2k for cubes seems very expensive, considering they were offered on the website for $800. Yes, I know, almost impossible to get them at list price, but I got a cube for $1100 including shipping, and it ROId about 2x. I then sold it on eBay two weeks ago, got $600 for it still.

I guess what I am trying to say is, if you buy a ASIC above market price, make sure you sell it again before it's worthless...

GUYS BE AWARE !!!

There might be a hacker or some group or whatever that hacks your baikal devices.
They somehow change your Scripta dashboard access password to their will and make the device mine for themselves.

So monitor your devices closely, no matter what generation they are.

Now a question for a more experienced baikal user: is there any way to change that Scrypta dashboard access password to a custom / complex one ? As far as I knew that was not possible a while ago.

Thanks
Baikal's system seems unable to change the password, I tried to change the password, but there is no option, maybe I won't use it.

So back to my original question. What are you guys planning on using to power these things?

Your question can't be answered fully this time.
As far as I've seen in specs the miner consumes 850 watts for the X11 algo so any PSU with 1000 watts and six PCI-e 6 pin connectors will do.
The real problem will be when the other algos come.If for them the miner will consume more than 900 watts then you'll have to buy a PSU with 1100-1200 watts.

You understand?

I don't think they are out in the wild yet. All indications are that the images on their website aren't even the final production version yet. Mainly due to the number of pcie connectors in the photos.

Baikal Giant X10 Algorithms: X11 / Quark / Qubit (for now)
Baikal miner Giant+ Algorithms:X11 / X13 / X14 / X15 / Quark / Qubit

So "soon later 4 new algorithms can be added by updating" - i bet three of the four would be X13 / X14 / X15, and the last one... I hope it would be Blake (2b) - since ASIC is already in development by the Sia dev team

I was looking at the Blake algorithm too and there's apparently several versions. Nicehash supports Blake256r8, Blake256r14, Blake256r8VNL, and Blake2s (could this be the 4 algorithms?).

Does anyone know how similar or different those versions of the Blake algorithm are? Link to explainer on Blake would be appreciated.

"HI,


friend, sorry for delay, We have received your payment, but the actual amount we received is 9154.09 usd
Our offer amount is 9504 usd,Can you check your banking system?

i think maybe your Canadian dollar was converted into Singapore currency and then converted into dollars, which cost extra.

And I just received notice of the company, the first batch has already paid a deposit but not in the first ship list , we have a small number miners of the end of November for you(Just for the clients who already paid the deposit), but the amount is 1399usd.

Could you tell me what you think?


Best regards
Baikal"

1st - Their bank got the amount wrong, using CAD and converting into SGD, making the amount that I've sent which was $9504USD into $9154.09USD.
2nd - I was told that I will be in the 2nd batch but now that 1st batch is delayed to end of November, they are offering $1399USD/unit to be on 1st batch.

This sucks. I was getting all excited. Ordering power supplies and even lining up an electrician to install a dedicated mining circuit in my basement. I still expect ROI depending on the non x11 algo's and the fact that bitcoin may likely be 7500-10k when this is released. That will undoubtedly make these things worth a ton to resale. My initial thought was to resale 1 of my 3 if I could recover the total cost which based on prices for d3's and other asics seemed fairly reasonable.


Title: Re: Baikal Giant X10

Title: Re: Baikal Giant X10
Post by: jb7032 on October 16, 2017, 01:58:28 PM
Who knows. All I am saying is if bitcoin trends up people will keep over paying for mining gear. D3's profitability has dropped 90% and people are still paying 3x their price for ones in hand. They are still paying 1.5 to 2x price for Nov pre orders. I feel this unit is more valuable then d3's due to the flexibility in algos. None of this matters if this product doesn't come to market or doesn't perform as advertised. Fingers crossed that they hit mid November and market stays strong.
