2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Marketplace (Altcoins) / [ANN] Aura Miner - Universal ASIC PCB Project - By Fibonacci Inc. on: January 19, 2014, 05:29:51 AM
This is a crosspost from the litecoin forums, the users referenced are on there. https://litecointalk.org/index.php?topic=12567.0

Github: https://github.com/losh11/aura-asic

We will assist any users working on forks as best we can. It was intended to replace the klondike as a properly designed pcb....Although it is still in kicad. We are working to convert it to altium by February, at which point we can probably assist further.  

If you would like to donate to our engineering teams time investment into this board send to the address in my signature.

I have sent out a copy to a few users, as we are a bit busy for now and our git is private we will have community members host the project on their git.

Current users that have expressed an interest are listed below and should post their git please once you have it uploaded.

Currently we have user Cheshyr converting the board from kicad to altium. 1CheshyrZsZ5X1XWW5EQUhGTExx6LTQBw4

We still need a user to convert it to Eagle, and someone that is willing to manage the master branch on git.

Anyone else from SouthWest Florida on here? I am looking for any local places that may be worth pushing to pick up crypto as a payment method so I can stop converting coins to USD just to get lunch Tongue

My first wish would be to get https://www.facebook.com/LARollingStone < excellent food. Any other ideas from anyone?

(By the way anyone on here that happens to look at any of the links we discuss here please send them an email asking them to start taking btc/ltc/all crypto.)

Cross posting quote from other forum here.



Our goal is to help build up the LTC community. We have several projects rolling at the moment to do this, some of which will launch this week. And in the next few weeks.

Simple answers to common questions

1. Do you plan on taking pre-orders?
A: Originally we had not planned to accept pre-orders as there was no means of exit for the investors. As a result, we have produced an exchange so that users can sell their unwanted orders if they decide they do not feel like waiting. So yes, we will be taking pre-orders on 3/17/14 6PM EST. This will be for the samples that we have been told should be complete in July (This is the estimate we have been given, not a guarantee.)
2. What speeds/hashrate/power/heat/ram size/model/etc will we be using?
A: Recursion miner at ~8 - 11 watts each chip.
3. How will all these questions be answered?
A: Glad you asked! Well we are going to release an instruction manual for LTC ASIC development. There is not much documentation on how this is done, we discovered to our eternal pain and torment, so as our devs produced the code....they did some writing and took notes along the way on relevant items that were never mentioned in the open fpga project.
4. Can I have one free to test?
A: For now, probably not, we are not rich and we have done all the funding for ourselves up to this point. And a mans gotta eat. One cannot live on bbq coins alone. We will release the information needed to modify the miners to be able to use our ASIC if it becomes necessary.
5. SCAMMM!!!???!?!?
A: If you think we are a scam please direct your money we have not asked you for toward any other upstart project currently running. I hear NVC might be worth a look.
6. When will the Production units be sent out?
A: We cannot be sure until a stable speed at our desired target is achieved at a consistent rate and once a viable competitor comes to market.
7. OMG Moderated thread, you must be running a scam.
A: Derailing posts, and users unwilling to read the OP, if you feel like trolling I will usually reply to you anyhow....but when I get tired of idiocracy someone will probably delete your posts, so lets only troll within reason.
8. Scrypt ASIC, Seriously?
A: Yup.
9. How long have you been working on this project?
A: Its been about a 1.5 years.
10. Will you provide a PCB design for the users that purchase just chips once you begin shipping units rather than hosted mining?
A: Yes, it will be available in advance open source with gerbers, support (when we have time), and debugging and updates (when we have time).
11. Will you ship out massive amounts of miners to everyone and ruin the network?
A: Nope, we will initially only sell hosted mining, then once we have viable competition we will begin to ship the units to the public. This will help slow the advancement of companies reverse engineering designs such as ours. Around this time we will likely be done with our gen 2 or 3 chips and have to clear out the hosted units anyway. We are in discussions with trusted members of the community to help stagger in hand hashing power to continue with decentralization of the network.
12. What price will you be charging for your miners?
A: ~0.115$ per kh/s (0.10$ for LTC) is the current pricing we are using as our baseline. This will likely change a bit, but not much. Once sales of ASIC devices begins ( Not FIB.HW/FIB.SITE shares) then you be able to pay in Cachecoin also, which can be found at cachecoin.org. (Cache is temporarily disabled due to a bug in the wallet we are working to fix.)
13. What is the hash rate and power consumption of the chips?
A: Our conservative estimates are 8-11 watts.
14. OMG Your prices are higher than GPUs, SCAM!?
A: How much power does it consume? Heat? We will be tweaking the design so it may change a bit but we created a miner that consumes under 5 watts and is faster than your gpu. Power costs will recoup in the long run vs any gpu. But that just depends on your situation. If that is not enough to make you buy one I recommend not purchasing one.
15. OMG no way thats too expensive!?
A: We will be creating several variant boards, they will range from a single chip to 32 chips (we may create more too) so please keep your jimmies un-rustled.
16. What are the model names for the units?
                                                                                   BTC                      LTC
A:  Prices are based on hash rate per miner.
   1. Fibonacci Recursion                                             $400        0.10 x 8650 = $346
    2. Fibonacci Axiom                                                 $7200    0.10 x 162000 = $6480
    3. Fibonacci Epsilon                                              $14000   0.10 x 315000 = $12600

17. Is your asic an Hardcopy or Fastpath based ASIC?
A. No, we spent this past year creating a chip that is a full custom ASIC.
18. Will you be charging for shipping?
A. No, it is included in the price.
19. Will you be charging VAT?
A. In most countries we can simply state no, we have our engineering team in Germany so they can ship directly. And most other countries we will simply absorb the cost.
20. Will you be limiting the amount of chips 1 person can purchase?
A. We successfully limited orders at initial sale so everyone had a chance to buy a miner at reasonable price (Including taking cache at a discounted rate) and now will no longer limit sales.
21. When will you ship?
A. Once we see that we have viable competition on the market. Until that time we will host the miners, or send them to the trusted hosts to handle.
22. How long until we begin receiving dividends?
A. Chip Dividends will be distributed once we begin testing the units, the time period in between us receiving the ASIC and starting hashing should only be about 2 weeks.
XFH dividends will be paid out automatically based on how many shares you purchased and accounting for profits per chip sale.
23. How much rack space is necessary to host the units?
A. 1U will hold between 150MHs - 200 MHs.
24. Will you be matching KNC's Titan in $/khs.
A. Yes, we had already figured in a large margin for just such an occasion. Each miners speeds will be increased to match the $/khs rate.
25. If I have 1 XMH is that the equivalent to 1 recursion?
A. Yes.

Cross posting quote from other forum here.



Update: 12/9/13  - Updates incoming. There will be a shuffling of domains as we go public with information. Stay tuned.

Update: 11/10/13 - Fibonacci - LTCFPGA.com Is now the Fibonacci project, we have begun to open up more information to the public and we are aiming to go public with all our plans in the next couple of weeks. LTCFPGA.com will be retired soon.


We are in the process of making a FPGA for litecoin. I will try to post updates here when I have time. In addition our site address is Litecoinfpga.com or LTCFpga.com. They will also have updates. And we will be developing the sites soon for the ordering system we are going to add to it in the future.

Our goal is to help build up the LTC community. We have several projects rolling at the moment to do this, some of which will launch this week. And in the next few weeks.

Simple answers to common questions

1. Do you plan on taking pre-orders?
A: No, we will most likely do a hosted mining setup like asicminer did, this is a tried and proven method of successfully setting up orders without mislabeling people as preorder customers. And all the while building good will among the community members.
2. What speeds/hashrate/power/heat/ram size/model/etc will we be using?
A: We will release all of the relevant info to our investors first, then publicly afterward. We do need to be able to build them in peace first. The 1 billion questions will be answered later.
3. How will they be answered?
A: Glad you asked! Well we are going to release an instruction manual for LTC FPGA development. There is not much documentation on how this is done, we discovered to our eternal pain and torment, so as our devs produced the code....they did some writing and took notes along the way on relevant items that were never mentioned in the open fpga project.
4. Can I have one free to test?
A: For now, probably not, we are not rich and we have done all the funding for ourselves up to this point. And a mans gotta eat. One cannot live on bbq coins alone. We will release the information needed to modify the miners to be able to use our fpgas if it becomes necessary.
5. SCAMMM!!!???!?!?
A: If you think we are a scam please direct your money we have not asked you for toward any other upstart project currently running. I hear NVC might be worth a look.
6. When will the Production units be sent out?
A: We are aiming for 6 months from now, but that is give or take 2 months either way. We cannot be sure until a stable speed at our desired target is achieved at a consistent rate.

Edit Dec. 11, 2013 - Added for Bitcointalk.org post questions 7 to 13 -

7. OMG Moderated thread, you must be running a scam.
A: I will only delete posts that derail, if you feel like trolling I will usually reply to you anyhow....but when I get tired of idiocracy I will go ahead and delete your posts, so lets only troll within reason.
8. Scrypt ASIC, Seriously?
A: Yup.
9. How long have you been working on this project?
A: Its been about a year.
10. Will you provide a PCB design for the users that purchase just chips once you begin shipping units rather than hosted mining?

12. What price will you be charging for your miners?
A: 0.90$ per kh/s is the current pricing we are using as our baseline. This will likely change a bit, but not much.
13. What is the hash rate and power consumption of the chips?
A: Our conservative estimates are 960kh/s @ 3.5-5.0 watts per ASIC.

8  Economy / Goods / WTS 3 total pairs w/boxes (6 coins) Of LEALANA W/ERROR 10 LTC Silver Coins on: December 06, 2013, 09:48:26 PM
Selling off 3 pairs of silver LTC physical coins. None have been taken out of the plastic holders. And all have their coins left on the address without hologram scratched at all or ever touched. If you want escrow, then buyer pays the fee and buyer pays shipping.

Asking 84 LTC per pair, I can only sell them in the pairs so do not ask to break them up, they come together in the leatherette case with cardboard covering still in place.




9  Economy / Services / Logo Contest - 0.10btc reward - Awarded (complete) on: December 04, 2013, 10:28:08 PM
Looking for a few concepts, or even completed logo for our website and company. I have one already, but I am no artist so I figured I would tap into the massive talent on the forums.

Paying 0.10 BTC reward for the winner, if we feel that it is exceptional we may put out a higher reward. There is no time limit on the contest, but we plan to choose a final design before December ends.


The concept we have been working with is the fibonacci sequence and the golden ratio. Current basic logo is just a nautilus shell with the ratios sketched out and the company name "Fibonacci" integrated into the nautilus shell. But if you have a better way to display the golden ratio, phi, or some other related notion please implement it into the logo. If you have questions about the design or direction or need clarification let me know in a reply or PM here.

Congrats to medUSA

6 x http://us.msi.com/product/mb/890FXA-GD65.html For sale, they were on miners I used for about 2 months. They are in good condition. Shipping is coming from Florida and buyer pays shipping. Asking 140$ each.
Also selling 6 x sapphire 7950 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202026 asking 180$ each

The two on the boards are AMD 4100 & AMD 6300fx, I dont recall which have which but I can check before shipping if anyone really cares and 8gb ram.

Will include a riser with each gpu if 3 or more purchased.
13  Economy / Lending / 3 Month Loan 30btc on: September 22, 2013, 07:48:33 AM
I am willing to negotiate reasonable APR for the loan, offering to pay 10% APR (Or whatever the negotiated rate is at the time). I have loaned and been loaned to several times on here and on btcjam. I will be using the 350 245 30btc remaining needed for a project I am involved in and will be happy to answer any questions via PM. I am willing to break up the loan into smaller pieces. I am willing to provide proof of identity, address, etc, and I have references on the forum additionally or on the phone. Please PM me any questions for a bit more detail on the project if you are interested in assisting. For collateral, I will escrow the code for our project with a trusted agent.  

Changed to 3 months loan.

17  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / [Group Buy] Litecoin Physical Silver Coins 1/2 Troy Oz with 10LTC ~900 Remain on: June 26, 2013, 07:37:59 PM


The purpose of this thread is to facilitate a group buy of physical LTC. The Group will purchase as many as allowed in advance and post the amount here and resell them to ensure everyone here gets a coin that wants one. This will be the first batch, and a collectors item and there is only a limited run of 1000 coins total a portion of which will be retained by the creator. I am assuming he will retain 100, so the remainder will be the ones on sale in this group buy.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=243341.msg2583376#msg2583376 (Original post by smoothie about the coins.)

2013 Lealana Physical Silver Litecoins

Regardless of the final price the coins are sold at, the purchase price for the group buy to simplify matters will be 100$ in LTC or BTC per coin.

Current purchase price of the Physical Solid Silver 1/2 troy oz is 1BTC or 40 LTC.

For Litecoin Payments: LYDVkTe96CfjKumDxLFZxzuNduyM1Svb8q

When payments have been received to pay for an order I will update the thread to reflect the amount sold. The order in which the payment is received will dictate each buyer's place in line.

This will include the leatherette case in the price, air tight capsules, and certificate of authenticity.

Once you have made payment, you will need to email the following information to ltcgroupbuy@gmail.com

Forum Name:
First Name:
Last Name:
Street Address:
City:
State:
Zip Code:
Country:
Shipping type:
Phone Number:
Email Address:
Payment amount:
Sending Address:
TX ID: *See FAQ for questions.
Link to reply on bitcointalk.org posting that you have made payment.

The time the payment was received will dictate your order on the list. If you become the last person on the list and they are out of stock at that point ( I will contact the creator of the coins to ensure we have not gone over the amount of stock remaining. ) Your coins will be refunded.

If you live outside the USA, you will need to add an additional 10$ for shipping regardless of the amount of coins you purchase.

Inside the USA shipping will be an additional 5$ regardless of how many are purchased.

All coins will be sent registered mail, so your address will need to have someone there that you trust to sign for the delivery. If you do not want to pay the 5$ inside the USA for the registered mail, you can choose to skip it by stating in this thread:

" I accept responsibility for the package's potential theft if it is left at my home and stolen. I also accept that if the mail service loses or steals my package the shipper will be in no way responsible for the coins loss. "


FAQ:

Emails received regarding questions outlined in this FAQ will be asked to review the information contained herein.

Purchasing

What is a TX ID?
A transaction ID is a number that is generated every time coins are moved from one address to another. In order to find the TX ID of your purchase you can right click and select “show transaction details” within the bitcoin-qt or litecoin-qt software, or go to blockchain.info and enter your payment address if you are using bitcoin.

Do you accept reservations?
Coin purchases are on a first come, first serve basis, and all orders must be paid in full.

What do I do with coins?
Coins are used as a means of transfer of LTC physically. And besides this, I mean look at them, they are awesome. And they happen to be batch 1 so they are collectors items.

Can orders be split and/or transferred?
We are not responsible for any splits or transfers negotiated after purchase of the coins, nor will we facilitate any trades. This is your responsibility after you have received them.

Can I add to my order?
Assuming coins are still available, you may add to your order, if any coins remain they will be attached to your order in a single shipment. If they are no longer available, the coins that did not make it into the group buy will be refunded. These will be handled after the group buy totals have been confirmed.

Can I pay with (Insert anything other than BTC or LTC here)?
BTC and LTC currently the only accepted forms of payment.

What if my email is hacked and you receive a payment from the correct address but they send a different shipping address?
We cannot be held responsible for your lack of security. If you do discover this type of an attack has occured, email the ltcgroupbuy@gmail.com and we will have you sign a message to prove ownership of the payment.
