We're full up on resellers at the moment. You're not the only inquiry I've turned away lately, but we do appreciate the interest.

Thanks for the kind reply. Our goal wasn't to become a reseller per se, we are building a community of Bitcoiners and wanted everyone that joined to participate in mining to some degree. We are striving to create sufficient demand for these little miners that anything less than wholesale is worthy of consideration for other options. Hope you'll reconsider. We'd just like to buy in bulk on a monthly basis at a fair price with the assurance that you will be able to have a continuous supply available. Thanks for the consideration. Have a nice day!

Hi All,
     I'm would love to start distributing the Compact F miners in my area, but I was wondering if they are still being
manufactured? Is there a way to buy them in bulk? Would love to be a local reseller.

sidehack sure made an awesome little miner and it is amazing that his has persisted all these years.
Hoping you all might help me understand the state of things without having to bother him too much as I assume he is very busy.

Thanks in advance!

Thinking about becoming a reseller of your miners (CompactF and R909). What would I need to do for your consideration?
Are bulk orders sufficient?

would like to keep following your development.
I've noticed your official announcement
and a link to a different discussion thread than this.
What thread should we follow?

5  Bitcoin / Project Development / Re: - a simple open-source cryptocurrency exchange on: December 28, 2022, 12:54:11 PM
    This is awesome work and a good start. Something I'm very interested in. I know there are some open source exchanges out there already, but nothing
I can find under currently active development/improvement. Is this something you will continue working on well into the future? Count me in if so.

8  Bitcoin / Project Development / [ANN] Bitimax (BTX): Maximizing Peaceful Consensus. on: March 25, 2017, 04:24:30 AM
Hi All,
      Starting a new project. Need lots of help. The initial bare bones plan is below.

I need of Web designer, graphic designer, web developer, etc.
and lot of bloggers that are tired of all the contention.

Thanks for your time


Name: Bitimax (BTX)

Slogan: Maximizing peaceful consensus among individuals

Website: (Secured domain, no website yet)

Bitimax is an organization that builds and hosts communication tools for faster consensus discovery from a pool of competing ideas for desirable protocol change. Bitimax empowers anyone and everyone to express and promote their concepts. Once sufficient consensus is achieved, the technical community can go to work with higher probabilities of success. This organization is all about uniting individuals on commonality and diminishing the focus on group differences.

Q & A
Does the Bitimax organization innovate and/or maintain Bitcoin/Blockchain technology?
No. we innovate communication tools that allow anyone to express their well-formulated ideas for potential consensus victory; however, we plan to work closely with the technical community to help concept authors be advised on the complexity and feasibility of their endeavor.

Is this a potential answer to the poison generated within the Bitcoin community?
We hope so. To our cherished community, this is for you

Can this service speed up development of the Bitcoin protocol?
Absolutely! Engineering a viable and trustworthy solution to a Bitcoin improvement proposal takes considerable engineering time, peer review, and a lot of testing. To go through such a painstaking process without consensus is disheartening and a waste of time, money, and resources. Hopefully, with this service, consensus-worthy ideas will quickly be found, prioritized, and handed off to the technical teams.

How does it work?
We utilize well studied methods for brainstorming and collaboration among large groups: Multi-Voting, (Nominal Group Technique) NGT Voting, Nominal Prioritization, & Affinity Grouping/Diagramming.
These techniques are far superior to straight voting because it allows an idea that is favored by all, but not the top choice of any, to gain wide-spread consensus. These methods provide more unique ideas, more balanced participation from everyone, increased feelings of accomplishment, and greater satisfaction with idea quality and group efficiency. These methods help prioritize issues and they help save time by focusing only on ideas with the greatest potential.

Who votes?
Individual node operators, Bitcoin services & businesses, Bitcoin hodlers, services & businesses that accept Bitcoin, and Miners. As great as Bitcoin technology may be, without all these participants, it would have little to no value.

What is the process of submitting an idea?
Work in progress.

I'm looking for help for our current miner we are working on.

You may be interested in our approach and progress.

PM me for details if interested.

10  Bitcoin / Hardware / 14nM/16nM Chip Specifications on: October 31, 2016, 08:33:40 PM
Looking for Chip 14/16nM Specifications.

I understand their are some 3rd party projects going on with BW and Bitfurry chips.
We are NOT looking for chips.....YET, but the information would help solidify our miner design.

Anyone that is in a position and willing to help in this regards would be greatly appreciated.

If you want more Bitcoin Hardware variety, please bump and keep this thread active. Thanks!
11  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: Looking for Broken S9 Hash Board and Controller... Thanks! on: August 23, 2016, 09:17:53 PM
Update: Thanks to HolyScott at, I now have a Avalon 6 and Bitmain S7.

I'm still looking for a Broken S9 Hashboard and S9 Controller... Thanks!

Thanks Dogie for the offer on the S7 Controller. Looks like I'm good now.
12  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: Universal Hash Board: Bitmain 1384 "UHB_BM1384" on: August 22, 2016, 11:19:11 PM
Final changes have been made to this board and the links in OP have been updated.
Hopefully it will be of use for anyone looking to do anything with S5 Bitmain miners.
There was a wealth of information learned about bitcoin mining hardware while working on this.

Avalon 6 is next!

Thanks for checking it out! Cool
13  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: Looking for Broken Avalon 6, S7, and S9 on: August 10, 2016, 09:05:23 PM
Seeing as you're hardware savy you can probably unbrick my S7 controller

I may take you up on this. Give me a few more days to see what I can find.
What is shipping look like from the UK to the US?

14  Bitcoin / Hardware / Looking for Broken S9 Hash Board and Controller... Thanks! on: August 08, 2016, 06:19:35 PM
Looking for some broken hardware to build UHB boards similar to the following:

Universal Hash Board: Bitfury 28 nM "UHB_BF28NM"

Universal Hash Board: Bitmain 1384 "UHB_BM1384"


Update: Thanks to HolyScott at, I now have a Avalon 6 and Bitmain S7.

I'm still looking for a Broken S9 Hashboard and S9 Controller... Thanks!
15  Economy / Computer hardware / Re: [WTB] BROKEN Avalon 6, Bitmain S7, Bitmain S9 on: August 03, 2016, 06:56:48 PM
You needing miners or chips? Because I have some A3218 and BM1385 pull chips (untested) that I'm probably never gonna do anything with.

Thanks Sidehack. I appreciate the offer.. it means a lot.
I'm looking for the miners (hash board and controller) to reverse engineer for learning purposes.

Thanks again!
16  Economy / Computer hardware / [WTB] BROKEN Avalon 6, Bitmain S7, Bitmain S9 on: August 02, 2016, 06:30:50 PM
[WTB] BROKEN Avalon 6, Bitmain S7, Bitmain S9

looking for one of each.

Need them for this project:

17  Bitcoin / Hardware / Universal Hash Board: Bitmain 1384 "UHB_BM1384" on: August 02, 2016, 06:18:14 PM

The "Universal Hash Board Standard" first introduced here:
Is now being applied to Bitmain's BM1384 for learning purposes.
It is our goal to apply this preliminary standard to as much hardware
as possible to make sure it can accommodate all possible
small ASIC string designs.

Universal Hash Board: Bitmain 1384 "UHB_BM1384"




Edit: The PCB layout needs rework after a few changes to the dimensions of the PCB and some small changes to the schematic.
          Files will be updated as soon as its complete. Done! Links updated as of 08/22/16

Looking for help. Anyone have some dead hardware they can donate to this cause? Looking for dead hash boards and controllers for
AVALON 6, S7 and S9.

Thanks for all the positive criticism.

Small preview of the electrical Spec's:
18  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: Universal Hash Board: Bitfury 28 nM "UHB_BM28NM" on: August 01, 2016, 08:29:21 PM
Please Help. We need some more hardware to reverse engineer and make sure this standard is truly universal.

Looking for broken S7 and S9 Hash boards and controllers.
Looking for a broken Avalon 6 hash board and controller.

If you have any sitting around collecting dust, please donate soon!


19  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: Universal Hash Board: Bitfury 28 nM "UHB_BM28NM" on: August 01, 2016, 08:25:36 PM
I've heard the easily replaceable hash board before (including from Bitmain) and it never quite works out the way you think it will. Have a look between the generations and try and work out how many Bitmain generations are a. board compatible and b. heatsink compatible and that'll give you an answer as to the sustainability.

Yes. This has by far been the most challenging aspect of the design.
Varying sizes of chips and thickness.
Surrounding components.
Heat dissipation through the top of the chip or through the PCB.
Different PCB layout where chips are now in new locations.

It's no surprise where Bitmain is now: Individual Heat sinks for each ASIC.

Our solution may not be elegant, but should work.

Not ready to go into detail yet and the topic deserves its own thread.
20  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: Universal Hash Board: Bitfury 28 nM "UHB_BM28NM" on: August 01, 2016, 07:13:43 PM
Very cool...but a little chips will be sold to anyone by any manufacturer to make a miner for the general public Sad

I totally understand the pessimism. I've been watching Bitcoin since the GPU days and all the drama that has unfolded.
IMO, if it doesn't change (ASIC companies not selling their chips) then they are going to be "holding the bag" and it won't be worth much.
If they don't embrace us "little guys" sooner rather than later then I truly believe POW blockchains utilizing ASICs are doomed.

We've chosen to be optimistic. We've chosen to work hard and share our efforts as much as possible with a bright hope of ASIC manufactures
embracing us and working closely with us.
We desire to become a 3rd party hardware manufacture that will also empower this community and give it a voice that cannot be ignored.
