Sold to BitcoinPappi.

Sale pending to BitcoinPappi.
4  Economy / Computer hardware / Re: 2 Cointerra Terraminer IVs for sale - 1.6TH and great condition on: July 28, 2014, 10:45:47 AM
Update - have 3 people currently interested. Price to beat right now is 2.8 BTC per unit. BitcoinPappi is my preferred buyer and was the first to declare interest so somebody needs to offer significantly more than him otherwise he's getting both. It's almost 7 AM here in FL - if I don't get any better, solid offers by early afternoon I'm probably going to proceed with the sale to him.
5  Economy / Computer hardware / Re: 2 Cointerra Terraminer IVs for sale - 1.6TH and great condition on: July 28, 2014, 12:33:29 AM
I'm perhaps willing to go over 5. Where are you located? Would you be able to ship quite promptly -- say, within 36 hours or so? Thanks.

I'm in South Florida. I can ship next business day or same business day, depending on when payment is confirmed.
6  Economy / Computer hardware / Re: 2 Cointerra Terraminer IVs for sale - 1.6TH and great condition on: July 27, 2014, 03:16:01 PM
Current high bid is 5 BTC for both (somebody who PM'd me, ignoring what I said in my OP I guess, but regardless), so that's the price to beat. Look like it'll be going to him so far. If I don't get a better offer in the next 10 hours or so I think I'm going to take his.
7  Economy / Computer hardware / [SOLD] 2 Cointerra Terraminer IVs for sale - 1.6TH and great condition on: July 26, 2014, 04:28:44 AM
Hi all,

Posting here to see if there's somebody who is willing to pay what I consider a reasonable price for two of my Cointerra Terraminer IV. I'm selling because my electrical costs are quite high (0.18/kwh USD with AC factored in) and it seems like the local utility company is slowly increasing the rates too. The other reason is because I rent a room hundreds of miles from the site, and I'm relying on somebody I'm not completely happy with the arrangement with the site owner. With that said I'm not opposed to continuous mining on them if nobody gives me a reasonable offer. I have more to sell than these two units but I'm going to see how these go first.

Pictures located here: https://i.imgur.com/oeNaR9l.jpg (rack) https://i.imgur.com/rlt0CyY.png (#3) https://i.imgur.com/D77AFNg.png (#4)

The units in particular that I'll be selling are #3 and #4 in the pic. Yeah I realize that it has a date from two months ago on the pic too but that's because I considered selling them a couple months ago but decided against it. If you really want a new pic I can take one on Sunday/Monday when I'm in town. I'll be in town from at least Sunday to Wednesday this coming week (for something else) which is why I'm considering on selling these two now as I can easily handle the packing and shipping in the evening. Both of these units run at 1.6 TH as seen in the pics - they also have been carefully repasted with Coollaboratory LiquidPro which is MUCH higher grade thermal paste than what it ships with. This combined with the AC set at 76 and directed somewhat at the intakes is the cause of the very low temperatures seen on those status pages. They run in a dedicated room with three dedicated AC units. There's effectively no dust or dirt in the units. There are significant scratches on the outer cases (not on the front) but that's a cosmetic issue only. The only thing I have to do to keep these running with basically 100% uptime is a remote reboot (using the WebUI - I just teamviewer in from home) once a week. That's all it needs at my location to keep operating without issues.

I've been on these forums for two years. I also have industry friends that I've done business with or helped who can speak for my reputation: Jddebug, Abracadabra, GenTarkin, ElGrecoFL, WKNiGHT, and Jezzz. I would hope that people understand I can be trusted but if you insist on using escrow I understand - for this purpose I have already arranged for OgNasty to operate in this capacity. You will pay his fee (1%) if you elect this option.

I have the original packaging materials, cables, etc. They will ship UPS Ground within one business day of confirmed payment to myself or OgNasty if you elect his escrow service. Shipping is to the continental 48 United States and will need to be signed for upon delivery. There is also an option for local pickup in the West Palm Beach area, where we'll meet at my friend's retail outfit (units will otherwise ship from Florida). There is no warranty or refund offered. These units have been working without issue since late March so I don't expect you to have any problems but of course I can't guarantee you don't. I don't sell hardware that isn't working properly - #2 actually has problems and may never be sellable (although it still works 90% of the time right now). #1 may be sold if the sale for these two go well but this is not on the table right now.

Ideally I'd like to get BTC3.5 per unit - I doubt I'll get this though - so make lower offers at your leisure but keep in mind I don't HAVE to sell these and I have a reserve in mind that I won't sell below. Post your bids in this thread, do NOT PM me to make a bid. I'll be monitoring this thread and will start looking late tomorrow and will likely contact people on Sunday if reasonable offers have been made. You can either bid on one or both. Bid for your price to factor in shipping - I'm expecting a cost of about BTC0.16/$100 for UPS Ground. Thanks for reading.

You might be interested in this thread over at the Cointerra forums: http://forum.cointerra.com/threads/making-the-terraminer-cooling-more-efficient.817/

I'm going into great detail there and sharing pictures of repaste attempts and discussion back and forth regarding overheating and throttling issues.

EDIT: I accidentally a word, the whole thing

No, like bitcoin, you will just lose more and more money mining from now on. The value of ltc has absolutely no reason to rise as mining doesn't drive price; perceived value from it being used in an economy is what drives price but most people seem to not know/forget/ignore/pretend that's not the case.

THIS.
10  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: CoinTerra announces its first ASIC - Hash-Rate greater than 500 GH/s on: March 18, 2014, 08:47:22 AM
Cointerra is totally ignoring me for an RMA. They will not respond to my emails and conversations on Cointerra forum. DO NOT BUY FROM THEM if you expect good customer service they will not honer it. They're one of the most terrible company. Their machine isn't even stable, I leave it at the datacenter and CTA 0 always die during a 2-3 day hashing, so I have to drive 30 minute there every 3 days to power cycle it. I will never ever buy from cointerra again.  

[sad face snip]

Another possibility is just using simple timers. If it always fails after 2-3 days, then perhaps just have a timer to turn it off for 5 minutes once every 24 hours? My Dad has had flaky hardware that would screw up in a similar manner and this automatic scheduled power cycle once a day resolved his problems and kept it responsive. He used just a basic wall outlet timer he got at Home Depot for cheap, nothing fancy just consumer grade stuff. Just keep in mind that whatever timer you get will need to handle all the amps these pull. I'm not sure also on if you'd have to power cycle both PSUs at the same time or in quick succession - I only just got mine and haven't experimented with the "3 second window" thing on powerup yet.
11  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: CoinTerra announces its first ASIC - Hash-Rate greater than 500 GH/s on: March 18, 2014, 08:35:34 AM
Thanks, that would come in handy. Now I have to see how I would use it at the Datacenter. I have to ask the employee to change the original to this. What you think of putting a Windows Desktop PC in the datacenter and remotely connect to it to monitor the Teraminers?

I am not sure how handly the Windows box would be because if you can't connect to the Terraminers from outside the datacenter(via Web, SSH), it would be almost the same from the Windows machine inside the data center as well. If there are a bunch of Terraminers, it would be nice to monitor them all off of a Windows box though to keep them all behind a firewall.

I do this myself personally - I run a basic box onsite that I connect to remotely from Teamviewer to manage multiple CTA and Antminer units. I don't know of a way to connect to the WebUI systems they use for management outside of the LAN, so I just use Teamviewer to get behind the LAN and then log in from there. Right now I've got one unit running on Eligius so I can just have a bookmark for that address and check it frequently and I've got another on GHASH that should send me an email if there's a hashrate drop.

if you thinking of ordering from these guys, know that they are not fulfilling me as a customer...  they have NOT refunded my money.

What happened? I don't remember the contract promising a refund, am i wrong?
Posted from Bitcointa.lk - #ZQtQClOPUdNeuDUS

They have stated it on their website itself that customers can get a full refund if they want.

http://cointerra.com/update-production-news-janfeb-batch-customer-offer/

20-30% reduction in hash rate causes huge problems and those in April and May will not even be able to break even at current price of Bitcoin. That issue is that its not 20-30% reduction in profit, its basically that the 20-30% is all profit that's coming off considering the investment cost.

Yep, I've got two in March batch and two in February. My two in February are just shipping out today, and even they aren't going to make much so I recommend if you have April or later batches to probably go for the refund instead, unless you think you can flip them for a profit of course.

Also, Cointerra fucked up my shipping big time. I now have to wait until Tuesday to get it because they shipped it UPS Ground instead of the UPS Next Day Air I paid $250 a unit for. Great. They told me they would "refund me the difference". Doesn't look like they're going reimburse me for the almost $400 (just at current rates) that this will now cost me, even though they damn well should. I think after this I'm done with any sort of preorder bullshit and I'll be sticking to GPU mining and the gear I already have and will only order from companies such as Bitmain who have proven solid.

I'm currently debating whether to trash them all over the forums/internet because this problem I described above is only a small portion of the bullshit I've suffered at the hands of this company. I'm going to wait for now and see if there's any resolution offered to the various problems I'm having with them and their "hosting partner". Oh and I was told 4-5 weeks for refund - you're not alone jjiimm_64. Unfortunately because of the way this industry operates I'm not sure if it's worth the time as I expect they will get their orders filled regardless. Just look at all the idiots still ordering from BFL.

Thanks for that graph Gmaxwell. Has there been any adverse effects from the firmware patch, such as increased operating temperature/fan speed, power consumption, or other?
Not that I've observed. I don't have a power meter specifically on that unit, and guessing from my aggregate load it may have decreased it if anything. Probably better to ask someone with a big farm of them however.  As you can see in that graph, it didn't adversely impact latency at least (DOA rate of 1.2% pretty consistently).

Ok great, thanks.

A public service announcement on the CT boxes:  

Make sure you're running the latest firmware. I don't think I need to point out where I installed the new firmware here:

Seems they started shipping February batches. Anyone from February batch received theirs yet?

I have two units due at the end of February and I've heard nothing yet. So when I get mine I'll announce it on this thread (if I'm not busy constantly trying to keep them online) and then you guys will know most of February is over.


its hard to win ordering asics at all

You win by ordering from companies that have IN STOCK asics.. That way you can fairly predict profit potential

Of the three I've ordered from, only one vendor (Bitmain, obviously) actually delivered on target. This mess with Cointerra has seriously put me off ordering any other ASICs, I'm tired of eating the risk of these startup companies failures. I'm now in the early stages of working on an Nvidia Maxwell scrypt mining operation instead. Maybe you're right jjiimm and it's preorders that are to be avoided.

Maybe I'll feel differently once the Terraminers arrive. I was told yesterday by email by Terrafly Labs that they've completed shipping January and are working on February, which will be done "within the next 1-2 week(s)". Whether that's two weeks or Two Weeks™ remains to be seen.

They also confirmed that "any opening of the machine will violate the warranty". Fucking great.

I get the same blank page upon attempted login also.

I had 9 BTC in my account a few days before the attack, and since I operate 367 GH I would have had 12-14 by the time the attack occurred, perhaps more.

I'm back on Ozcoin for the moment, and I'll be checking my payouts daily - I can't afford for something like this to happen again. It's partially my own fault for leaving so much to build up on my account. So set up an automatic payout for each day, or make sure to cash out. Don't be like me and risk up to 3000 USD (at time of writing).
17  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: [ANN] US/North American Bitfury sales now open ***full prototype pics*** on: September 10, 2013, 10:03:30 PM
I guess this is the world we live in.  My team has been working 14 hour days trying to test and ship hardware to customers while also growing the mining operations.  I have been totally transparent in what is going on here as well as my plans and approach to dealing with challenges on multiple levels, while keeping it fair to the customers & investors.

In all other retail businesses, if a backordered situation exists, you will just wait.  I have taken steps to set aside hardware that will run on the behalf of customers in order to reduce their pain of waiting.  Of course I'm not running PPS at 7%, that's ridiculous.  Its PPLNS @ 3%.  If you have a problem with the pool fee, then let us know what your pool is and we'll make sure you get the 1 - 2% more coin.  If you want your share of NMC mined - whatever, send me an address.


Am I understanding this correctly? MBP is compensating for delays by running the equivalent hashrate for customers and then paying out when hardware ships? This is unprecedented in this industry and is to be commended. Can you imagine a scenario where BFL would do the same? Or anybody else? Correct me if I'm wrong but I think this is a major Good Thing. Credit where credit is due.
18  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: [ANN] US/North American Bitfury sales now open ***full prototype pics*** on: July 31, 2013, 12:50:57 AM
bad news 400Gh/s  gone to full price now to 12kUS and also other too.

ps: look like Aug. orders will ship out soon.

Oh well. Too good to last. Can't say I blame them. However this is going to mean that my chances of a second order of 400 GH for October is out.

Edit: put my response in the quote. HURR DURR.
19  Bitcoin / Mining / Re: Butterflylabs has the worst customer service in the world. on: July 28, 2013, 10:58:16 PM
I am Jack's complete lack of surprise.

I got the 25% off coupon also. I appreciate the good intention by BFL but the other side of this is of course they're extremely unreliable with both delivery time and customer service. I made out on my last order (6 x 60 GH Singles, now delivered) by placing and paying so early on the first day of pre-orders and dealing with almost 13 months of nail-biting wait time. Unfortunately the same can't be said for most people and if history is any guidance then it's going to be a long time before they get through the previous year's orders. Even if BFL offered 75% off I doubt I'd be willing to take that offer. I wasn't going to bother ordering any more equipment as I considered it too risky to use BFL as a vendor again.

Instead I threw $8000 at Bitfury last week by way of MegaBigPower. I also paid with credit cards, so that if buzzdave goes back on his word to refund all orders if requested (highly unlikely) I can charge back anyway. Why would I deal with BFL again if I can go with somebody better? From a strategic standpoint I hope that BFL doesn't go anywhere as we need as much competition in this industry as possible, and I need the $18,000 in hardware I have to be repaired under warranty if there would be problems. But from an emotional standpoint I hope they disappear. I didn't have this attitude and gave them the benefit of the doubt with regard to their effort to get units shipped ASAP. But then we discovered that they were vindictively cancelling people's orders without their permission (most likely illegal) and exercising extreme disrespect for their (previously in my case) loyal, repeat customers such as yourself.

Other people had told me that once I got all this hashrate and started mining that I would forgive and forget BFL for all their wrongdoings. They were mistaken.

Edit: dat grammars
20  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: Custom Case Design for Bitfury Miners on: July 20, 2013, 03:04:39 AM
This may seem paranoid, but I would suggest removing the "Bitfury 400GH Miner" marking from the case. If you're going to host this with a third party then you may not want to advertise to the world its intended function/purpose.



I am definitely interested in this case. This would also be a concern of mine too.
