you don't need to spend btc on shipping:

If you want to generate your own label for me to ship with (such as USPS.com/FedEx) : .31 btc per unit. (check post #2, will post more instructions there in a few days as well for those who don't know how to create labels)
how to create a shipping label by BorisAlt: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=271054.msg2928336#msg2928336
Blades:

10.25 btc each (you supply the shipping label)

10.25 + shipping cost (you choose from several options with me)
To secure your units, send 10.25btc per unit.
use a btc calculator and you will see that everyday, the blade is good for 0.12889410 btc generated (using next estimated difficulty).  my shipments are lighting fast and I'm the fastest reseller.  so, if it takes you 2 extra days to receive your blade using different pricing, it's like giving up 0.2577882 btc.  is it worth it? no, you want them in your hands ASAP, and that means letting me handle your orders.  please take a second to understand this Smiley  I can clarify if you'd like. just let me know.

4.52TH/s - 4,516,763 MH/s producing, ASICMiner USBs have been distributed by me so far.

I am 4 miles from a MAJOR DHL hub that receives these orders from China.  My delivery times are the best.  packages sent to me by ASICMiner are in my hand the same day they enter US.  They do not take an extra day or two to travel the country to get to me.  It takes me 11 minutes to drive to DHL when necessary.   My location is in a major metropolitan area next to a LARGE international airport that is a hub for shipping for all delivery companies.  This gives me access to DHL, FedEx (also just 4 miles away, open till 9 PM for next day shipping).  I have access to several Post Offices around me.  I can ship USPS till 7 PM.  I ship to you the same day I receive my delivery.  Simply put, I am in the best position geographically and logistically to receive an order and to get it out to you ASAP.  Period.

2013-08-10: HOW TO SIGN A MESSAGE TO ME (YOUR SHIPPING INFO): https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=195647.msg2291965#msg2291965 Please NOTE: the above example is NOT the same as sending a signed message with your transaction. If you are new to this (aka noob), please read this so that you understand what to do.  This is the single most problematic step in the ordering process.  Here's how to sign a message with a blockchain.info wallet: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=180068.0 Please verify the signed message yourself before you send it to me

how to send a shipping label:
I'm writing up some basic instructions to add to this post... you will essentially download that pdf label from usps and email it to canary.btc@gmail.com (email used for labels only, contact with questions via PM here)
in the body of the email, you will have 4 things:
1. transaction id of your order
2. 1st payment address of the transaction
3. tracking number (no spaces)
4. Signature (your will sign ONLY the tracking # from item #3)
additionally, if you use this method, you no longer need to PM me shipping address as a signed message.  trying to make things simpler for all.
I will check that the tracking number in item 3 matches the label exactly.


Common Questions:
When will I receive my order? Answer: I ship out the same day I receive inventory from ASICMiner/friedcat.  I do reserve up to 1 day to get it done in case DHL delivers later in the day.

Can you confirm my order? Answer:  you can confirm your own order by looking up the transaction id of your payment.  if it has confirmations that is your confirmation that your funds were received.  This is what I would do to "confirm" your order.  bitcoin is designed in a way to allow you to confirm and see what you've done.

Folks and miners,

As announced in the Official ASICMINER Hardware Information thread, I am a reseller in the USA of ASICMiner products.  International buyers, please contact your respective re-sellers.

Please Note:
Only send payments from an address you control (i.e. you can sign with it). If you send from MtGox or other exchanges, you risk loosing your funds since you can't prove you sent them. Please send from a wallet you can sign a message with.  You will send your shipping address via this method.

Policy update:
Refunds: Your orders are binding after your funds have been used to pay for an order.  Before that (while coins are piling up for the next batch), you can ask for a refund and will get it paid back in full. Understand that after you get refunded, I will not accept future orders from you.

Notes
  1. Fans are not accompanied with blades anymore. They were more or less intended to serve as a help of quick setup and mining testing for users who haven't got proper cooling yet, but turns out to be quite misleading by making people think the fans are powerful enough to cool the (already)over-voltaged and (easily)over-clocked blades.
  2. To make the whole shipping process smooth enough, no more racks are given out or for sales. As a compensate we practice the bulk price discount as shown above.
  3. Please be aware that the payment processing and shipping will be less prioritized than the remaining orders in the third auction. It may be 1-2 days less timely before the third auction's shipping is completed. After that it will resume the instant-style speed.
----------------------
Note, local pickup is no longer available for orders less than 100 units.

Please do not send funds unless you control your wallet and can sign a message with the sending address!!!  Wallets like bitcoin qt and blockchain wallets can sign messages. Please do not send from an exchange, you do not control the sending address and can't prove

Disclaimer:

As with any ASIC, you need to understand that there are risks involved.  Do not invest what you are not willing to lose. EVER and in ANYTHING!  Having said that, you understand that I
can not make any guarantees on the manufacturer's behalf and every participant agrees to the terms and conditions HashFast attaches to the order.

Why am I getting involved in this?  After having had contact with different people who are involved in bitcoin hardware and having solicited their opinions, I think HashFast will deliver.  But this is only my opinion formulated based on the research I've been able to do.  Please do your own research!  And I have an empty computer room with plenty of space for 10 of these units and plenty of power 350W * 10 units.
43  Bitcoin / Group buys / .10 promotion from ASICMiner distribution by CanaryInTheMine on: August 05, 2013, 06:37:57 AM
I have 1600 units allocated for the first promo batch.  They are arriving soon. These are going to the latest buyers at the .9x prices in reverse order.

ASICMiner's wishes are that it be a 1:1 promo.  meaning that if you bought 1 miner you get 1 .10 coupon.  if you bought 2, you get 2 .10 coupons if you bought 100, you get 100 .10 coupons etc... etc...

The promotional inventory that is arriving is designed to go to approximatly the latest 30% of the purchases, 1:1.

At some later date, per friedcat, the remaining 70% will also be presented with the .10 coupon.  I do not have that date yet.  it will be posted here when it's available  The remaining 70% includes all purchases back to 1.99 price.

Therefore,

tomorrow towards the end of the day I will publish a list of how the first 1600 units are going to be distributed.
You should expect to pay .05 shipping (priority domestic) and handling fee for a total of .15 per unit.

P.S. unwanted coupons will be offered to the next person in line.  I will not be facilitating or participating in coupon transfers/sales etc... My main goal right now is to get the units out to you ASAP.

08/07/2013 Update:  received needed info from most of you.  We are working on getting these shipped out.

48  Bitcoin / Mining support / Synchronizing with network... on: July 27, 2013, 12:26:46 AM
can some plz tell me why this happens (gets stuck):



how do I resolve this QUICKLY, without re-downloading the whole block chain again?

This happens often enough to really be an annoyance... I have to grab the wallet and open it on another workstation while re-downloading the blockchain on the effected system...

it's the latest qt wallet.

49  Bitcoin / Group buys / ASICMiner Rumors on: July 24, 2013, 04:36:54 PM
BTCGUILD has announced this:
"Since all other outlets are announcing this even though it was not supposed to happen until August 1, yes, USB Block Erupters are having a price cut!

USB Block Erupters are now on sale at 0.60 BTC per device (free shipping to US). A huge number of units are en route, which will clear the backorder, and leave roughly 1,000 units available for next day shipping by August 1.

If you ordered an Erupter at 1 BTC, all is not lost yet. A coupon program is being initiated by ASICMINER and distributed by BTC Guild. 30% of the units sold at 1 BTC will be eligible to purchase a 2nd unit for 0.10 BTC (+0.05 Shipping/Handling). The exact method of coupon distribution will be announced when coupon units arrive, which should be around August 5th."


I've setup #15 at .55 btc: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=263577.0

regarding .10, I will follow the expected coup distribution, per manufacturers parameters.  Once it is available, those eligible will be notified with redeeming instructions.  Grin



Folks, my message box is getting full of requests regarding this post: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=99497.msg2794058#msg2794058

My response:
"i don't get involved with rumors  
Being a re-seller, ofcourse I would follow manufacturers requests and promos, once anything is officially announced."

If you PM/email me questions regarding this, I will not answer but defer to the manufacturer.

Hope you understand.

Thanks!

I am 4 miles from a MAJOR DHL hub that receives these orders from China.  My delivery times are the best.  packages sent to me by ASICMiner are in my hand the same day they enter US.  They do not take an extra day or two to travel the country to get to me.  It takes me 11 minutes to drive to DHL when necessary.   My location is in a major metropolitan area next to a LARGE international airport that is a hub for shipping for all delivery companies.  This gives me access to DHL, FedEx (also just 4 miles away, open till 9 PM for next day shipping).  I have access to several Post Offices around me.  I can ship USPS till 7 PM.  I ship to you the same day I receive my delivery.  Simply put, I am in the best position geographically and logistically to receive an order and to get it out to you ASAP.  Period.

Common Questions:
When will I receive my order? Answer: When I order with friedcat, allocate up to 4 business days for me to receive it, I ship out to you as soon as ordered inventory arrives.  info on when I order or pre-order with friedcat can be found on the thread.  this info is shared on the thread.

Next Steps:
Collect orders for ASICMiner Block Erupter USBs.

Please Note:
Only send payments from an address you control (i.e. you can sign with it). If you send from MtGox or other exchanges, you risk loosing your funds since you can't prove you sent them. Please send from a wallet you can sign a message with.  You will send your shipping address via this method.

Policy update:
Refunds: Your orders are binding after your funds have been used to pay for an order.  Before that (while coins are piling up for the next batch), you can ask for a refund and will get it paid back in full. Understand that after you get refunded, I will not accept future orders from you.

Folks and miners,

As announced in the Block Erupter USB Sales thread, I want to support the ordering of individual Block Erupter USBs and act as a distributor for the 50 units offered in bulk order by ASICMiner.

Product Description:

    payment accepted is Bitcoin ONLY.
    the minimum order quantity is 50, maximum has not been specified, but there probably will be a maximum.
    Each one mines at more than 330MH/s, powered only by the USB port.
    It serves as a replacement of GPUs for mining hobbyists.
    Your GPUs could be freed from calculating hashes and resume rendering for you.
    It is also a perfect gift for getting people to learn about Bitcoin and Bitcoin mining.
    The Sapphire Batch:
    This is the first batch under production in quantity.
    Color of PCB changed to blue
    Adding a LED which blinks when a share is found
    Fixing the cgminer compatibility problem
    Reducing the heat generated and the current to <500mA


Pricing:
Here's a webpage to assist you with ordering: http://www.bitcoinpokerblog.com/canary/GroupBuy13.php

The cost of shipping is 0.09 bitcoins for orders of 10 or less.  USPS Priority Flat Rate shipping is free for orders of 11+
You can upgrade to USPS Express or FedEx.  you need to contact me for a quote based on the # of miners you wish to have shipped (weight dependent).

Domestic Insurance:
Now optional.  Be aware, if you choose not to pay for insurance, you absolve me of any liability or claims for lost, damaged etc... packages.  In other words, buy the insurance.  I just got a kick ass rate and am very happy to extend it to you all!!
 
Insurance cost is $2.40 for up to 10 miners ($1000 of declared value).  This is 0.028 btc and the minimum if you are adding insurance.
cost of insuring each additional miner beyond 10 is $0.24 or 0.00282353 btc.
so for 11 miners for example (N=11), cost would be (N*0.00282353)= (11*0.00282353) where N is the number of units ordered.  If N is less than or equal to 10, then the insurance cost is fixed at 0.028 btc

Handling and processing is a flat rate of .10 btc per order.  (this pays for a hired person, yes, this has created a small job (for now)  Grin )

so for example, if you order 10 miners with insurance, the cost is:
.94*10+.09(shipping)+.028(insurance)+.10(handling)= 9.618 or 0.9618 per miner.
if you order 10 without insurance, the cost is: .94*10+.09+.10= 9.59 or 0.959 per miner.

if you order 11 with insurance: .94*11 +0.0(free shipping) + 11*0.00282353(insurance) + .10 (handling) = 10.47105884 or 0.95191444 per miner.
if you order 11 without insurance: .94*11 +0.0(free shipping) + 11*0.0(insurance, i'm not responsible) + .10 (handling) = 10.44000001 or 0.94909091 per miner.

Note, local pickup is no longer available for orders less than 50 units.

Ordering:

There is one common payment address: 19yY9KYsmktKpRpUBXwxCimz2iqRMvQtKw

54  Bitcoin / Group buys / [CLOSED] Group buy 500 GH/s Bitcoin Miner BitForce 500 GH/s Mini Rig SC on: July 19, 2013, 07:35:20 AM
7/21/13: CLOSED DUE TO LACK OF INTEREST. please don't post in this thread.

I'm thinking about putting my 25% off voucher from BFL to purchase a 500 GH/s Bitcoin Miner BitForce 500 GH/s Mini Rig SC which would put the price at 22,484.00*(1-.25)= 16863 plus shipping, (which may be based on the original price so it is $798.00), for a total of $17661 or at the current mtgox rate of $89.35 it is about ~200 btc.  I reserve the right to modify this before the unit is purchased in case btc fluctuates and we are short to pay BFL (deficiency would be spread equally among participants)

Assuming that a received device is running at 90% (spec) of the 500GH, that leaves 450GH/s available for calculations...

I'd like to sell 90% of 450 which is 405GH/s / 200 btc as shares. so it is 2.025 Gh/s for each share @1 btc.

I'd run it as long as it's profitable/operational in a climate controlled environment.  profitability depends on operating costs (electricity mostly but could include necessary maintenance, repair etc..). and would be taken out of mined btc at cost.  btc payout weekly.  decisions can be voted on based on % of share ownership.  once it is no longer profitable to operate, I will keep the hardware.  those wishing to sell their share to someone else would pay a fee to transfer the shares to another person (2%).

is there any interest? If so, please send 1 btc per share to 1LhsEySjkqYuY7JrDSFkFa2zgvnQGN2H96
there are 200 shares per device.  if this sells out quickly, I may run sell another device sale since the 25% discount does not appear to be limited to a single device, rather to a single order.

if this does not get filled up, I'll refund the outstanding orders.

P.S. if the hashing rate is higher than 450, the difference will be applied to each share owned, for example if it's rate turns out to be 475GH/s then 427.5 GH/s will be available for the 200 shares at 2.1375 Gh/s per share.

No reservations are taken.  You need to send payment to own the shares.

57  Bitcoin / Hardware / For those wondering about the utility of MondoHub on: July 13, 2013, 05:50:59 AM
MondoHub 28-port:

so I ordered and received this: http://www.cyberguys.com/product-details/?productid=63202

after testing it, I determined that it can only handle 9 USB miners for those of you wondering...
obviously when you read the spec (it comes with a 4A PSU), it's clear that it would not have powered as many miners as there are ports.
however, being the Canary and all, I decided to test it anyways so that there's no question and others don't waste their time...
a few other observations:
- the usb ports on the edges are not well thought out... the miner's heatsink is facing downward toward the surface, so terrible with trying to get fans on it
- there are magets on the bottom, once I moved the hub around gingerly, a few fell off... not a good quality product in my opinion...

What we know so far:
According to Taobao. Chinese auction website:
- New 5 Ghash/s mini blade.  9.88 BTC.  35 watt.
- New 10 Ghash/s blade. 18.88 BTC.  70 watt.

It is guestimated that the first batches produced will sell out rather quickly.  Therefore I'm setting up a group buy to make sure we have the purchasing power and btc in hand to make a purchase as soon as they are released.

DISCLAIMER:
All pricing is preliminary and CAN change if necessary...
The manufacturer has asked me to make it clear that we do not favor any pre-orders and therefore not accepting any.
You understand that this is NOT a PRE-ORDER of any kind.  and that ASICMiner does not favor anyone.  This is just a plain 'ole group-buy.  Grin
There's no time estimate on when these will be released yet.  We all have access to same info at this point.

I am 4 miles from a MAJOR DHL hub that receives these orders from China.  My delivery times are the best.  It takes me 11 minutes to drive to DHL when necessary.   My location is in a major metropolitan area next to a LARGE international airport that is a hub for shipping for all delivery companies.  This gives me access to DHL, FedEx (also just 4 miles away, open till 9 PM for next day shipping).  I have access to several Post Offices around me.  I can ship USPS till 7 PM.
Simply put, I am in the best position geographically and logistically to receive an order and to get it out to you ASAP.  Period.

I have run at least 11 group buys for ASICMiner USB products before.  The first one completed here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=195647.0 The second completed here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=217981.0 The third completed here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=219422.0 and the fourth one completed here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=222960.0 the fifth completed here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=226656.0 sixth, seventh, eight, ninth and tenth can be found here on forums

Common Questions:
When will I receive my order? Answer: When I order with friedcat, allocate up to 4 business days for me to receive it, I ship out to you as soon as ordered inventory arrives.  info on when I order or pre-order with friedcat can be found on the thread.  this info is shared on the thread.

Next Steps:
Collect orders for ASICMiner Blades.

Please Note:
Only send payments from an address you control (i.e. you can sign with it). If you send from MtGox or other exchanges, you risk loosing your funds since you can't prove you sent them. Please send from a wallet you can sign a message with.  You will send your shipping address via this method.

Policy update:
Refunds: Your orders are binding after your funds have been used to pay for an order.  Before that (while coins are piling up for the next batch), you can ask for a refund and will get it paid back in full. Understand that after you get refunded, I will not accept future orders from you.

Folks and miners,

As announced in the ASICMINER Blade Sales thread, I want to support the ordering of individual Block Erupter USBs and act as a distributor for the 50 units offered in bulk order by ASICMiner.

.95 per device plus costs (read Pricing section below).

For orders of 50+ units, contact me for a quote.  orders of 50+ are handled privately, unless you request to have it publicly posted.
Please take a moment to read this ENTIRE post.  Absolutely New Pricing, make sure you understand it.

This is the ELEVENTH group buy I'm organizing. The first one completed here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=195647.0 The second completed here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=217981.0 The third completed here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=219422.0 and the fourth one completed here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=222960.0 the fifth completed here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=226656.0 sixth, seventh, eight, ninth and tenth can be found here on forums
Timer removed. End time: 2013-07-14+23:59:59

Pricing:
Pricing is now based on $85 USD/ 1 btc exchange rate. (mtgox as of now)

The cost of shipping is 0.09 bitcoins for orders of 10 or less.  USPS Priority Flat Rate shipping is free for orders of 11+
You can upgrade to USPS Express or FedEx.  you need to contact me for a quote based on the # of miners you wish to have shipped (weight dependent).

Domestic Insurance:
Now optional.  Be aware, if you choose not to pay for insurance, you absolve me of any liability or claims for lost, damaged etc... packages.  In other words, buy the insurance.  I just got a kick ass rate and am very happy to extend it to you all!!
 
Insurance cost is $2.40 for up to 10 miners ($1000 of declared value).  This is 0.028 btc and the minimum if you are adding insurance.
cost of insuring each additional miner beyond 10 is $0.24 or 0.00282353 btc.
so for 11 miners for example (N=11), cost would be (N*0.00282353)= (11*0.00282353) where N is the number of units ordered.  If N is less than or equal to 10, then the insurance cost is fixed at 0.028 btc

Handling and processing is a flat rate of .10 btc per order.  (this pays for a hired person, yes, this has created a small job (for now)  Grin )

so for example, if you order 10 miners with insurance, the cost is:
.95*10+.09(shipping)+.028(insurance)+.10(handling)= 9.718 or 0.9718 per miner.
if you order 10 without insurance, the cost is: .95*10+.09+.10= 9.69 or 0.969 per miner.

if you order 11 with insurance: .95*11 +0.0(free shipping) + 11*0.00282353(insurance) + .10 (handling) = 0.96191444 per miner.
if you order 11 without insurance: .95*11 +0.0(free shipping) + 11*0.0(insurance, i'm not responsible) + .10 (handling) = 0.95909091 per miner.

Note, local pickup is no longer available for orders less than 50 units.
