Title: Bitmain registration
Post by: BodomMiner on October 16, 2021, 06:40:09 PM
I am trying to register for a Bitmain account but it doesn't seem to work. Anyone has experience with this?

Also, is Bitmain still reliable after the China ban?

I wish I had better advise on registration.
However search this forum for ASIC suppliers or look at for possible referral to a legit re-seller of Bitmain Units.
What little pops up for inventory on Bitmains site, pricing right now is very similar with some of the re-sellers that have been receiving previous bulk batches from 6 months ago. So they are still making quite a pretty penny. (most of my current quotes slightly less than the only S19 Pro on Bitmains Site right now).
Overall, miners are way overprice right now, but the secondary small guy market is buying them.

I've been buying from Btmain direct since 2017, though I have not purchased in the last year.
Over the last 3 or 4 month I have asked some questions of them with the intent to order a couple units. They continually fail to reply now, unlike in the past.

I specifically have bee n asking about country of origin for current stock units.
From past experience, some ship as manufactured in China (now 25% US Tariff's) some ship from Malaysia I believe (No 25% US Tariff)
In the past (over a year ago) they were prompt to reply and advise me of stock.
Now they just seem to ignore me, even being a customer that has purchased over 20 units one or two at time since 2017.

I wonder if it has to do with the leadership change and just being too big for their own good (only apparently caring about the big customers)
