1  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / GoDaddy Targeting Domains With Bitamp Open Source Project on: November 26, 2020, 12:19:20 AM
I'm sure everyone saw in the news recently that GoDaddy employees were socially engineered to give up some domain names. Yesterday I received a domain suspension warning from their Digital Crimes Unit claiming one of my domain names was hosting malicious content and violating their Universal TOS. They linked the domain name directly as a sample of the malicious content. When I went there, all that was there was an install of Bitamp's open source project from here:

I had installed it roughly 6 months ago when it was first released on a domain I don't use, testing various wallet services for a client. I had completely forgotten about. Reviewing the files there, nothing was modified since I installed it and it's an exact copy of their repo with no modifications. Confused, I informed them that this was simply an open source project that I was testing and asked for them to explain what was in violation of their TOS.

Today they replied with the following:
The website associated with your domain appears to be purporting an affiliation or official representation of Bitamp Bitcoin Wallet.

In order to authenticate this business affiliation we ask that you have someone from that organization reach out to us and provide confirmation that you have such permission.

In order to avoid any unwanted disruption of service, we require this proof of association to be provided within the next 48 hours.


Digital Crimes Unit

I find it a bit odd that I received this days after they were socially engineered. Is anyone else getting these suspension warnings for crypto related services on their domains through GoDaddy or specifically for having the Bitamp open source project installed? From the emails, it is clear they do not know understand what open source or Bitamp is and what the MIT license allows.
2  Bitcoin / Mining speculation / PangolinMiner/Hummer Miner announces Hummer Miner H7 Pro 48T on: November 01, 2019, 08:12:57 PM
I've seen discussion on Pangolinminer being non-responsive or going under, but they just announced this new miner and claim to be shipping within 5 days. Thoughts?

Two versions with same 65W/TH efficiency. 48TH @ 3120W and 53TH @ 3445W. Probably not efficient enough for most based on more efficient gear that's been out for about a year now.

3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Z11 Fried Hash Board on: June 04, 2019, 02:53:14 AM
Anyone else have fried hash boards yet?

Ran mine for about 2 weeks without issue and today I arrived home to it dead. Opened it up and middle hash board was fried. Was using a Whatsminer 2200w PSU, stock firmware with frequency at 731, always ran in vertical position, and ambient temp never above 30C. Running on two boards for now as it looks like Bitmain's warranty won't cover it and they require shipping the entire unit back for replacement parts. Middle board always ran hotter. Quickest failing gear I've owned to date.

The crazy thing is with only two hash boards it jumps up to 120KSol/sec, but it's not stable though. Boards constantly fluctuating between 30-68KSol/sec.

4  Bitcoin / Mining speculation / BITTECH Announces New 28 TH/s ASIC on: August 15, 2018, 02:11:06 PM
Saw a bunch of paid PR on this recently and not sure if it's legit, but seems to be since they aren't just 3D renderings and supposedly shipping September 15. Also not sure if these are the same guys that started scamming everyone years back, but site says they were founded in 2017, so may be a different company with same name.

Two different models:

BITTECH One - $1470
28 TH/s @ 2200W

BITTECH One Mini - $880
16 TH/s @ 1150W

Noise level of both is supposedly < 60db.

Found this older video, which makes it seem like they were initially only going to sell under service contracts, but appear to be selling direct now while also still having contracts if you want them to host:

So did Bitmain's Twitter account get deleted for all the scammers commenting on their posts or what?

Any info on it? Noticed firmware for it about a week ago on Canaan's site.
