Dear Xian,

Thank you for your interest in our products. As we speak, we have a backlog of about 200 emails. We process them as fast
as we can, so it may take a short while before we can respond to you. Rest assured, your order is in place.


Please let me know if you have any questions.


Regards,
BF Labs Inc.

I emailed you 5 days ago and still nothing. Only 200 emails in 5 days? That or your just ignoring those customers who have already entrusted you with their money..

It goes further than 5 days.

I doubt they will cause you to lose your place in line because of themselves not giving you wire info.

Surely you aren't talking about the same BFL that has been mentioned in this thread..
826  Other / Off-topic / Re: Buy your BFL bitcoins back from BitPay on: June 25, 2012, 06:55:03 PM
That means BFL collected at least 46k BTC of pre-orders, in 24 hours.

Ouch, that's about the same as the daily average trading volume over the past month at Mt. Gox.

If your right, good catch. And if my math is close, that would be approximately about 750GHash to 800GHash in products ordered. Not so dramatic (imo). Of course, that is just day one. Assume 10 such days is about 8TH. Wouldn't that be just about a 50% increase in difficulty (assuming it's linearly proportional). ROI's should be quick if true.

46k btc * 6.3 USD ~= 6.6 *Thash in one day...

Don't forget all the trade ins and bank wires.. it could be 4x that number. Smiley

I have it on good authority that Pirateat40 has been detained in Isle of Man SeaLand customs.  Payments will be processed in 6-8 weeks.

If they only got $400.000 in the feeding frenzy this weekend, then they better start mining themselves to recoup the remainder of the millions in R&D

Luckily they gave themselves a 2 month head start to mine (60 days after October before the refund kicks in) hahahaha

I love my tin-foil hat Wink

that's just in BTC, most new singles and minirigs are more likely to be paid by wire - so there could be another $500k-1mil of orders easy, just for the first pre-order day.

I've not heard of anyone getting emailed wire information for this preorder.  One person who I have talked to had a pretty early order number, but still hasn't gotten wire instructions.

Or something a bit more subtle.. like refusing to include transactions unless a higher transaction fee is paid.  Sure other people could try to mine them, but eventually, they'll be orphaned.
Meh, they would make more from screwing over a single merchant with a double-spend than a lifetime of transaction fee extortion, and people would abandon Bitcoin in both cases.

Eventually this will happen anyway once the rewarding drops further.  You'll see further consolidation as mining margins shrink which will slowly give the mining companies much more say with what goes on.

Aye, so pretty much like I'm imagining then. Sooo, how many merchants are able to deliver a product before the blocks resume and the chargeback happens. I mean if the 51% is sustained long enough to be noticed by devs would we not be able to fork from it?
You don't know until it's too late. The attacker starts mining on a chain of their own, without broadcasting the blocks to the outside world. They could be 100 blocks ahead of us right now, and you wouldn't know it. On their chain they're still in possession of their bitcoins, while they spend them all on our chain. When they're happy with the fruits of their spending frenzy, they unleash upon us their chain, which is immediately accepted because it is longer.

Just for laughs, I'll use my 2016 blocks per day example for some calculations. 2016 blocks per day is 14 times as fast as the network wants to go, so at the end of day one the diff would rise at the max rate of 4x. Now that 2016 blocks takes 4x as long to create, it will be 4 days before the next retarget interval. 4 days is still 3.5x as fast as the network wants to go, so at the end of 4 more days the diff will rise again, but this time by 3.5x. Now, the diff is 14 times higher than it was 5 days ago, and the block creation time is now back on track to where it should be. Therefore, in 5 days of mining, the network has adjusted the difficulty to neutralize this hashing monster, and keep the block flowing at a steady pace.

Between each difficulty increase, the network produces 2016 blocks. 


So if you've increased 3 times in 5 days, you've made 3x2016 blocks in 5 days.  That's 6048 blocks or 302,400 bitcoins.  Now you see why people are having wet dreams.

When will you be sending out the email for wire transfer instructions? I placed my order 2 hours after pre-orders went live and I am now at the end of the line because I am sitting here waiting for an email from you guys.

Same here.  I found it curious that they decided to not accept Dwolla & Paypal anymore.  Why?

How is the upgrade path FREE (sorry in advance) YOU FUCKING IDIOT ?

Quotes are the only way I have to see the truly retarded posts (or sometimes the lovely slap, as well).

I thank you.

Has anybody who ordered with the wire transfer option received wiring instructions yet?  I'm ready to put in the wire transfer request so it will go out Monday morning, but haven't received instructions, yet.

I have the old wiring instructions from when I ordered my Singles last March, but I'm hesitant to just reuse those, in case they might have changed.


Nope. Pretty pissed off about it too. I placed 2 orders ~2 hour after pre-orders went live, but didn't have the BTC for it so I had to use the wire transfer option. So now I have to wait for their instructions on where to wire it to and get placed at the end of the line.

At least you didn't buy hardware right before their announcement and have your capital locked up that way.

PCIe 4x

So this http://www.amazon.com/HighPoint-RocketRAID-2320-PCI-Express-Controller/dp/B000BWZOIA and it comes with the cables, right?
838  Economy / Computer hardware / Re: [WTS] 8x 1TB hard drives and raid controller on: June 24, 2012, 08:37:38 PM
Is this the PCI or the PCIE version?
839  Economy / Computer hardware / Re: [WTS] 8x 1TB hard drives and raid controller on: June 24, 2012, 08:03:48 PM
Selling the items below. This setup was used in my media server for a little over a year and half with no issues. The drives were in a raid 5 array with no problem then were removed from the array and tested individually as well with no problems.

8x Seagate 7200.12 1TB hard drives. $60 each
highpoint RocketRaid 2320 low profile 8 port raid controller $120

Payment in BTC. Shipping to US only included in price

I'm interested.  Speaking with a client tomorrow, I'll let you know.

I think Pirate is selling nuclear weapons to Iran and North Korea.  That's how he is making all of his profit.
