I made clear that I wasn't bothered by the middle-man part (even if completed in a shady manner IMO) Crypto832 repeatedly lied to me about being the end customer- plenty in logs that I did not share too which were frankly bizarre to get me to sell to him (supposedly).

I was never going to post this topic until I found out that he was grifting me for his so called 'lost earnings'. Guy was just trying his luck trying to scare me with negative feedback even when I offered him a full refund if he returned the miner.

But all the same, thanks for the support mikeywith Smiley

@Stryfe @TheNewAnon135246 thanks for the support. I guess it was a scam thinking about it, seemed extreme to call it like that - I'll change the title. Could not remove the moderation from this topic so I linked to a post with comment linking to this about Crypto832, not sure if that is strictly correct. Here's the flag I made:;flag=528

TLDR: Crypto832 is a nasty piece of work who lied to me about his identity to act as a middleman to skim profit. Then accuses me of scamming him when he was not even the recipient of the miner I sold.

I will keep this short and to the point as possible and let the DM logs speak for themselves. I am creating this topic preemptively as I value my forum profile and it would be a shame to see my reputation marred by an incident with such a vitriolic and unpleasant individual. Though truly I am not concerned about a conman like Crypto832. I still want my side of the story told.

Long story short, I agreed to sell my X2 miner to Crypto832 - also of the discord handle jrc832. My discord is snatly. The guy was pushy but I had recently became a new father and didnít want the hassle of driving to a data centre to get the miner hosted. The price was low, but I figured that I could just post it and that would be the end of it. Boy was I wrong. The initial trade fell through due to disagreements on price and me being unable to guarantee certain conditions as at one point the miner was not in hand- so I could not guarantee it would be declared low value to avoid import taxes from China. But he was still sniffing around interested (now I know why) and we agreed on another trade, direct without escrow- this time I had the miner in hand and could guarantee certain aspects of the trade with him.

The problems began:

The track and trace service I used got delayed, so Crypto832 started getting a little pushy - he wanted damages for lost revenue. I figured it wasnít unreasonable and provided a partial refund of close to 3-4 days of mining revenue (please see log pics). Time passed and the delay lengthened to almost 14 days. After this point I was continually accused of scamming him, intentionally shipping the miner slowly to screw him over and of course further reparations were demanded.
Now mister Crypto832 aka jrc832 on discord had already got a dang decent deal on the miner, I paid shipping and gave him some extra for the delay. Until the miner was delivered (and after) he continued his unhinged haranguing asking for another refund and threatening me with scam flags and negative feedback. At this point I was suspicious of his intentions, but offered him apologies and the chance to return the miner. Of course this would not work because he was not the actual recipient of the miner I sent.
Shortly after this another member of the forum informed me that Crypto832 had infact sold the miner forward and had no intention of using it himself having made a tidy profit acting as a middleman hustling- getting me (unbeknownst) to forward it directly to *his* customer.
Bittawm informed me of this and requested we get in a group chat to try and iron this out- since we all knew each other I didnít think it would be a problem. In this chat Bittawm called Crypto832 out for his shady dealings and the conversation quickly descended into homosexual slurs (lol really are we in highschool buddy?) and of course, the favourite go-to scam accusations.
And that is where I chose leave this interaction, having lived up to my side of the trade but somehow still scamming in his opinion.

The middle man hustle isnít what Iím bothered by, hats off to him for doing that leg work- even if he executed it in what I consider it to be an incredibly shady and dishonest manner. But what I do take task with is accusing me of dishonest dealings, of being a scammer and actually threatening me to basically pay up or face the consequences of a scam flag. Well as many of you know I treat everyone with respect and honour my commitments here on bitcointalk and I refused to be bullied by a member who spins up multiple accounts and in the process of the trade tries to shake me down in the process.

Below are the chat logs which I feel speak for themselves. Shout out to Bittawm for uncovering these strange dealings.

For the sake of brevity I will not post the initial chats and dealings I had for the initial trade. The conversation here begins while I am informing him that the miner looks like it was hosted in a dirty shed in China rather than an actual data centre. dox info has been blacked out.

Trigger warning: graphic language Wink

I'll let the logs to the talking. Self moderating this thread as I'm sure this will get a bee in someone in particular's butt.

See more on this joker here:

Also in his negative feedback on my profile he said I was not responding to DMs, after being called all manner of things on discord and knowing that the end customer and recipient of the miner was not him I ignored his message. I know bittawn is doing everything to make things right with the end customer who has a legitimate problem with the miner that needs to be resolved.

Locking topic for posterity/reference. I will be creating a seperate mintage thread for reference in addition to my website.
5  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / [Question] Replacement for Fusion Silicon X2 PSU? on: May 16, 2019, 11:29:29 AM
It's been a long time since I mined. Long story short I think I got an incompatible PSU from Fusion Silicon and I assume I could use a standard PSU to replace it? Rather than ship it back and wait I'd like to just purchase an equivalent.

Help much appreciated.

Figured it out, the info on the PSU was unusual. Should work with EU voltage.

Hosted by Fusion Silicon currently, been mining only 2 weeks. Will ship internationally.

No problems but due to some other circumstances I'm selling this limited edition miner.

Also potentially have another for sale.

Please message offers. I'm looking for around $3900

Others like his sock puppet anonymint defend his trading calls but now cant even do that since he has been debunked for the most part.

anonymint was not a sockpuppet, though I would assume from reading his many posts in the past he would continue follow MA quite closely.
maybe maybe not.. we will never know

If you had read anonymint's posts and all of his following profiles it would be clear to you that he was not- IamNotBack and UnoctaniumTesticles or something like that. He also has a steem account that he occasionally blogs on.

Don't get me wrong, there are shills and sock puppets everywhere. But I wouldn't make a comment because maybe anonymint wasn't. It would literally be beneath him to shill MA on an obscure internet forum.

Will be watching this thread closely. I'd throw my hat in the ring, sounds like an awesome project. Competition could be a great way to go about choosing a design.

Submitted another update to the mintage in the above post- missed some notes and it has been corrected. Turns out the mintage was actually closer to the 500 limit than I thought.

I will submit final mintage in circulation when I have melted the unsold coins.
13  Economy / Collectibles / Re: ◯ 'Goxxed For The Last Time' Gold and silver plated◯ on: February 16, 2019, 07:09:48 PM
Shout out to minerjones for poking me to get these numbers out finally.

After double checking my notes the mintage is as follows these numbers include error/smudge/unique spilled mustard (lol) coins:

180 'original' - silver plated, unnumbered
20 pure silver 'original' - unnumbered
31 pure silver numbered (numbered from 21 onwards)

120 silver plated commiserative numbered
120 gold plated commiserative numbered

Total: 420 plated, 51 pure silver

I'll be first to admit my book-keeping was not stellar on this, so apologies for any mix-ups. But these are checked against my notes and manufacturer orders.

Please also note that numbers have been rounded up as approx 50-80 original plated and silver/gold plated and commiserative were never sold and will be melted down when I buy a new smelter (last one shorted out and have not purchased a new one, crappy chinese made).
Bringing the actual plated amount in circulation to closer to 350-370

Open to any corrections but I believe these numbers to be fully accurate.

Will update the thread with the 'melted/discarded' coins when they are turned into ingots or something. I'll provide a video of it for veracity, but this may be months down the line yet, like I wrote, need to source a decent smelter. Have my eye on one from the UK...
14  Economy / Collectibles / Re: ◯ 'Goxxed For The Last Time' Gold and silver plated◯ on: February 15, 2019, 02:11:38 PM
Can anyone clarify the mintage numbers for these coins?

The encyclopedia lists the solid silver as having 500 made with an additional "3" made for the anniversary coin.

This seems off, as I have a few of the solid silver anniversary here.......

Hi Guys!

I have 2 pure silver coins left from my initial strikes- these are numbers 19 and 20 and will be the last 'unnumbered' coins sold. They come with certificate of authenticity. After this all my pure silver strikes will be laser engraved with their numbers. I will probably reduce the number of these strikes significantly as the initial aim of 500 was a little high. There will be no more than 100-250 of these coins struck.

With the silver price the way it is these rare and unique strikes should be a nice addition to your collection Smiley

Let me know if you're interested!

Hi minerjones, I've been meaning to put exact mintage numbers up for a long time.

There were no where near 500 actually struck in the end - that was just an upper limit. And also the encyclopedia seems off to me- must be a mistake. I do not think that more than 100 pure silver strikes were made off the top of my head.

I will compile them and put them up here and disseminate the numbers, while also putting them on my site soon. I have time this weekend and since you're interested this is probably the best time to do it.

Agree with a previous comment, ChiBitCty is a prime candidate for considering reinstating into the forum.

Maybe it had been suggested upthread but a vouch system would be good. I know one guy in particular who I'd vouch for, but perhaps that is like earning merit too...
