Ya... I would have sold my soul for chips 'cause it was cheaper than the price of the chips in BTC or $'s, but not to shill on the forum unless I know when and where the project will ultimately go as I shill for the WPC as much as I can as a member. They wanted hundreds of thousands of dollars and basically said that you have to order in the next 2 days sort of thing. RED FLAG there... sorry dudes not going to rushing out to the ATM to buy chips that were supposed to drop in what? October?


We'd appreciate it but the problem is we need only a very small sample quantity to start with to prove the prototype and our mother plane concept.

Hi Bicknellski,

I'm not clear on the mother plane concept.

HashFast's miniboards are self-supporting and only require power, cooling, and a controller with USB and CGminer.  They don't need a mobo/backplane/etc.

Are you saying you wish to develop your own mini (or maxi) board?

I'll keep you in mind and try to get you some samples when we begin bulk mini-board and later raw chip sales.  Our chip's datasheet should be published in a 2-3 weeks.

Would love to see The WASP powered by HashFast!

Best,

-HF_CL

 We are looking for chips only to develop a modular system. See the thread here for more details https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=299255.0. We are developing a number of different Wasps that can be installed into the back plane (mother plane) or stand alone and stack like FPGAs.  

Have a look at pages 63 to 68 and see who you think was being paid in Silica.

I'd post it here I didn't delete it... let me check.

Nope I guess I found it so foul I didn't bother to reply to the offer.

It was basically reward to keep the thread at the top and disseminate information they fed I believe. I am pretty sure that a fair number of people were contacted there is evidence of that clearly in the thread after they offered it of people pumping / bumping the thread up. I had been in discussions with HF for chips for our project but given the hard sell as well money they wanted upfront it just wasn't going to take that risk with HF or anyone. Most of these chip vendors are playing the funding game with chip orders. That is too risky given what has happened to me with the Avalon chips. I am never getting into that situation again unless I am working with people who have chips in hand or designing an asic ground up with our group.

Dear Bicknellski,

This past summer, HashFast created a huge splash in the Bitcoin community after the announcement of its Golden Nonce chip. The Golden Nonce—a 28nm ASIC chip that performs 400 Ghash/s at nominal speed while consuming notably less than 1.0 W/GH—is projected to change the future of Bitcoin mining.

Your thoughts, comments, and questions have acknowledged just how far HashFast has pushed the envelope in the Bitcoin market. Your interest in HashFast's products, as well as your expertise in Bitcoin mining hardware, makes you the perfect candidate to join HashFast’s BitcoinTalk support team.

As a member of the HashFast support team, your overall role will be to facilitate healthy debate and insight within the two HashFast threads in order to make sure that those threads remain at the top of the Custom Hardware message board. Sustaining a flow of supporting posts will encourage interest in the HashFast company and our products, which will lead to increased traffic on the HashFast website, and ultimately drive up purchases of HashFast equipment.

In order to achieve this goal, the HashFast support team member will be responsible for posting at least 1 – 2 supporting posts in each thread every day, or how ever many posts are deemed necessary to maintain a top position in the message board. Because we want to focus on the positive aspects of being a part of the Bitcoin community, verbal attacks by other forum members should only be met with immediate, persistent, reasoned, knowledgeable, and mature responses. Therefore, posts will be monitored to make sure that the language reflects the genuine nature and main objective of being a part of HashFast’s support team.

In exchange for your services, HashFast will keep the support team reasonably updated on engineering information, and any other valuable details, that can be used to enlighten forum participants. Compensation will be $15/hr for 10 hours per week – paid in silicon.

If you are interested in the position as a HashFast support team member, please contact us team@hashfast.com. Hope to hear from you soon.


Cheers,

HashFast Forum Liaison

Interesting... we are keen to discuss getting sample chips to work on our boards if that is possible. The Wasp Project Cooperative together is more interested in some sort of arrangement.


At the time I was really focused on getting chips but thankfully that didn't pan out given the state of their project. I emailed them in attempts to get chips and nothing more.

Tight tight deadlines... thanks for jumping in and posting here Joe.

Meeting Yesterday:

All Projects Overview

  • We are still moving forward on a number of areas and from the meeting yesterday there has been significant progress on most of the projects currently going on in the WPC. The 0.1 beta hive (backplane) will be ready in time and sent to the EE in Seattle. Firmware has progressed and will be available for prototyping with hand assembled bringup boards and further use with the first prototype boards from the fabricator.
  • The WPC Pool set a hard deadline for the testing of the pool as we near completion of that project. Our website will be reworked as we wait for pretty pictures / video and other media from the EE's working on firmware and hardware and our WPC internal share exchange has started development.
  • Licensing story lines have been created and are being work on currently for use on the provisioning server where the firmware / licensing will be released and will be ready before sales begin.
  • At this stage we are now reaching out to the community and finding partners outside the WPC who are interested in building our designs and have included a few of these people in our recent meetings so that they can see first hand where the team is in development and ask questions to the EE's. We want to open this up to those with the resources, time and focus to build our modular miners so that they can hit the ground running. We are here to support the mining community so big or small if you are keen and have time we want to include you in this Open Source project.
  • We will have A1, BitFury and BitMain available at first and when we get our hands on the Minion we will provide that as well. If you are keen on using our designs then please contact me with your questions.

But the BFL BitSafe looks simple enough that they can't mess it up.



To bad we cannot upgrade are Monarchs to a Bitsafe.

You would seriously store any amount of Bitcoin in a BFL device?  Huh Huh

started shilling so hard for them at the onset.

Did you get a PM to shill for HF as well? I did. Rejected that and put HF in perspective. If you can NOT live on the earned praise of this community and or face this community when the shit hits the fan then I suspect you don't deserve the support of this community. It is telling HF is not coming clean, paying people their BTC when asked to do so. The community is still waiting on product? Really?

People here just want one of these "companies" coming out of the starting gate that sells a product off the shelf with no bullshit, with a real refund policy that doesn't attempt in anyway to bait and switch this community. How hard is that? A few have done some modest in roads but to be honest no one has really satisfied the demand for hash power yet.

You can check out the manufacturers and their products below along with a calculator here.
If you still insist on buying, do not to go for BFL. Their track record is horrid and borderline scammish.
2489  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: -- Butterfly Labs New 600GH "Mining Card" - RED FLAGS?!?! on: January 18, 2014, 04:45:59 PM
The proof will be in March/April or is it May/June... remember no refunds or real timelines we have to stick to here because it is all just an ESTIMATE. My prediction here they fail to find an EASY solution for cooling it and 600 gh/s is just a dream. Got those chips packaged yet? Tested? Binned? Working PCB? No? Good luck waiting for this to drop it is going to take a lot longer than Slok or Inaba figures. It is already 3 months late.

You might want to rethink if Inaba or BCP or anyone supporting BFL is really being honest given this sort of blanket negativity just on their Facebook pages. Who can you trust? Not BFL obviously.

If you ever get a unit doa, dont expect to get a response in any timely fashion. I got a doa unit and its been a week and no response. By the time you get a response and gotten a rma? The difficulty would have risen at least once. Better to buy off ebay where people have them on hand and in working order. Btw i preordered in march and got my order 2 weeks ago. My estimated delivery was august.

Ordered my 25GH/s SC back in May, finally got it yesterday, after plugging in and following all the instructions to the letter, easyminer gets it ramped up to a blazzing 8 GH/s. Waiting to hear back from techsupport. Hoping I don't have bad hardware as well. Just got notification that my 5GH/s Jalepeno shipped today as well. Hopefully that one will run at 5GH/s out of the box. Feeling frustrated.

Is it even possible to talk to anybody that works for your company? I have received my unit after over a year only to have it fail 2 months into use. I have tried sending numerous emails, no reply. There is no way to talk to a live person through their phone system. This is the last thing I can possibly try to get the attention of your company. This is the worst customer service I have ever had, and I regret the decision of purchasing any products from you. I wish I had known you would take my money then block all communication afterwards before I decided to buy from you.

We have a design in place that can easily dissipate the level of heat produced by the card. Even GPU manufacturers have similar designs at similar power ratings that are workable. We also have a water-cooling solution we're working on for higher power consumption settings. It's possible.

You know that being a racist asshole really doesn't make your other points more believable.  If you think someone's a scammer fine. But I'm sick and tired of the racist crap that gets posted here, this isn't stormfront you asshat.

Make your arguments based on actual merit instead of race baiting and you'll be a lot more convincing.
