And now look at Jasinlee... so much for calling BKK as scammer eh buddy?

Knew he was a piece of shit when he started being a tool well back in 2013 when he started that fibonacci crap.


Bkkcoins work has not only helped this community, but his BOM and PCB have been adapted and copied many times. The Kondike has served as the basis for Technobit's miners, as well as a template probably for potential Litecoin mining ASIC pcb's as well, and who knows what other inspirations and technological innovations.

Accidents happen, and nothing is perfect. People lose bitcoins all the time, and they live through it, without brain damage.

That is not the case for real life accidents.

I appreciate what he has done to a tremendous degree, however it doesn't make it right for him to ignore his debts. I won't accept the not-small amount Chris owes me as some sort of collateral damage for the good of the greater mining community. That's ridiculous.

No one I hope would ask you to do that bassclef.

I merely think if anyone is going to smear his name they provide proof he lied and not insinuate that he faked or lied about laying in hospital  to take that to another thread and wax on about it there. This thread has been useful to so many people it doesn't need to devolve with name calling and false accusations or slander. I think it would be good if people could, if they have a legitimate beef and need to get BKKCoins to pay them back, to start a thread for that. For the most part people were civil asking for refunds or asking for more information that is cool. Jasinlee took that one step too far and slandered the guy.

I hope BKKCoins does whatever he can to send people refunds as quickly as possible and I believe that is well within the rights of people who are owed money to ask for it. In fact a number of us who have "lost" something in this monetarily have offered to donate more to help offset the loses of people. Maybe a new thread for a collection plate to refund those who are owed would be a great idea. Who is willing to escrow and check and verify who is owed?


----

Back on track...

zipiju nice work. I hope it benefits a lot of people.

Bar-

Excellent job putting all this info out there. I am on a similar path with Jason Hudgins of Fibonacci, but the difference is that he is not going to be able to run like Taran did. It's people like you that help clean up this community, and it's unfortunate that most people easily let things go and too many people get away with scams. I'm noticing with my own issue that about 2-3% of people scammed in this realm don't lift a finger after being scammed and lay down and accept the loss. I couldn't fathom that.

I wish you and everyone else the best of luck with collecting from this scumbag.

I wonder if the GA SS was because that is where he resided when he became a citizen (not sure where he was born)?

Everyone reading this needs to use Bar as an example of how everyone needs to react in these situations. Obviously, everyone isn't going to have the resources to pursue him like this, but be vocal, and make sure you make it so the scammer cannot scam others.

The only draw back with SPTech is the lack of definite shipping dates and this still has  not changed since my order. That is the only thing I would fault them with at this time.
Unlike other companies which build, mine, sell and ship (from the mine) we only build and ship.
It's very hard to guarantee definite times when you first need to build. The miners has many parts beside ASICs, which all of them need to arrive on time.
We're going through hoops to be able to ship within a month period. Until now it always succeeded.

Guy

Yes I appreciate that Guy I was happy with delivery it was on time as promised although I still wanted a more definitive timeline for the shipment. My refund came on time. My units worked exceptionally well and when I sold them as I said before they held their value extremely well. More than I thought they would and they sold immediately.

All consumers really want some more specific dates or times or minimally a 2 or 3 shipping window in advance. Just the nature of the consumer wants and needs it is clear that you guys do the best you can but that won't stop people from wanting a better estimate on shipping.
844  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: [ANN] Spondoolies-Tech launches a new line of ASIC miners - Best W/GH/s ratio on: October 29, 2014, 01:01:16 AM
Time to dust them off and box them back up!

What a bunch of bullshit.  We all know "compensation" never arrives.  Look at the complaints above.

Just ship the shit out already and quit playing us for fools.

I got my compensation. The products I use from SPT were shipped in time. Multiple orders, multiple times.
I'd love to have all my vendors of SPT's caliber, and I'd hate to have most of the complainers here as customers.
Fortunately, I can pick my customers.
  
It's better to refrain speaking for others, and if you're not using the royal we/us, you know, it's called "Dissociative Identity Disorder" ..

+1

Same experience for me and I would agree not to talk for others. Let others speak for themselves or just quote them.

The only draw back with SPTech is the lack of definite shipping dates and this still has not changed since my order. That is the only thing I would fault them with at this time.
845  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: [GUIDE] B's Moderated Biased & Opinionated Miner Sellers Trustworthiness Guide on: October 28, 2014, 10:10:17 AM
 Minersource is often a black hole for emails.
 Black Arrow puts out questionable quality X-3 even after long delays.

As many have noted emails and correspondence with Minersource is usually all miss no hit some support late in the day is not enough to make them trustworthy at this stage. Avoid Minersource and Black Arrow at all costs.

I put a PSU from another unit in that machine, and it reads alarm/fault - and the psu that shot sparks out works fine in a different unit.

So i've concluded that rather just being a power supply - it's the actual miner.  anyone know how to reset the bugger

I would start by looking at the backplane caps, and removing them if they look like they've failed.

If no help is to be had there, I would then remove all but one of the hashing modules from the backplane and see if it will start up like that.  If so, reconnect another, etc, and see if you can isolate one of them that pisses it off.

Did just that.  It worked.  Found a dead module.  Another module has 1 dead chip and 1 live chip.  So I've asked BlackArrow to send out a few replacement boards and I'll just swap the heatsinks over.  Let's see if they will do that.   I'd contact MinerSource, but since they don't respond to emails, private messages and they cancelled their phone number, I'm not sure how to get a hold of them.

Update: while MS normally has not responded promptly, I got a response about the faulty hashboard and he said that they have replacements.  So perhaps there is some light in all of this.
846  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: [GUIDE] B's Moderated Biased & Opinionated Miner Sellers Trustworthiness Guide on: October 28, 2014, 10:06:52 AM
Technobit why you still no answer?

Technobit is failing to provide critical information yet again on shipping. Same pattern as previously stated last year by many who were burned.



Thanks Vesi, but my question specifically asked where you are in the queue,  and how you were handling the queue.  Are you almost done with batch 1 orders?



I appreciate Marto's and technobit's intention to provide an open,  transparent process.  This question should be easy to answer.  Could you answer it please?

We note that being polite doesn't get your answer any faster no matter the claims from Technobit to the contrary.
847  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: BFL Product Failures / Underperformance. on: October 28, 2014, 10:01:23 AM
Some old RMA notes #askftc

Huh, so you're saying your unit did not perform double round sha256 calculations?  I bet you're lying. I bet if we tested your equipment right now it would, in fact, perform double round sha256 calculations just fine.  Come on now, fess up.

Never performed to specifications?  Why didn't you RMA it then?.

Okay, I'll bite.

I can say mine didn't. In fact I can say mine was broken and was RMA'd..... in December last year.
I have failed to receive the unit back after shipping it off, and every email has been ignored since enquiring where the hell the damn thing is.

Not that it's any good now...

So as you say "You should be more careful to not make such easily disproved assertions in your statements on an anonymous internet forum".


I wonder if anyone else can find another model that didn't meet the initial advertised specs.

FTFY. And in response.... like all of them.

  More and more reasons not to buy Technobit.

I have not received a single board yet.  Waiting on 25 boards.


Where any boards shipped out this week?  I didn't get my usual email from DHL that a package was being delivered...  Still waiting on 67 more boards plus 1 rma.

second week of no boards delivered. still waiting for 67 more boards.
851  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: [GUIDE] B's Moderated Biased & Opinionated Miner Sellers Trustworthiness Guide on: October 24, 2014, 10:11:45 AM
And the shut down's of smaller miners continues... why are you buying miners?

The signs are there. Are you reading the signs people? 5 cents a KWh.

You can also add me to the turning it off bunch. Moving out of colo, and retiring some 50+ TH of FrankenJups, S1s, Dragons, SP10s, S3s and BTCGardens.

We're moving 60TH to a warehouse with 5 cent power and about 50kw of capacity, and after the winter we'll likely be totally out. With the warehouse we can turn it off/on when profitable, which doesn't work in a colo situation.



852  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: [GUIDE] B's Moderated Biased & Opinionated Miner Sellers Trustworthiness Guide on: October 24, 2014, 10:09:41 AM
  And the band plays on. Technobit.eu is not the manufacturer you are looking for.

853  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: HashFast announces specs for new ASIC: 400GH/s on: October 24, 2014, 04:45:40 AM
Forget about the btc vs USD refunds argument.

Hashfast couldn't even give out USD refunds so either way you were fucked.

The problem is that hashfast spent more than $10/gh producing hardware that every other company was able to produce for $0.5-1/gh.

Either they were mind bogglingly incompetent, they were scammed, or they are scammers. Take your pick.

Scammers.

Glad we got to the bottom of that. BFL style.
854  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: [GUIDE] B's Moderated Biased & Opinionated Miner Sellers Trustworthiness Guide on: October 24, 2014, 04:29:42 AM
 Technobit's no answer answers.

And the shell game continues. Given the current price of BTC anyone buying miners really should not be buying from people who are willfully ripping people off without compensation. 15 weeks?

Hello? Anyone out there in technobit land?
Hi,
We are here.
Shipping every day.
If your order is packed you are getting e-mail .
Again We know you wait too long and we sorry about that situation.
If you want off the deal , just give us shipping address and we'll ship you back the chips

Bitcoin’s reward structure assigns new coins to miners. This effectively inflates the currency but it
winds down over time according to a step-wise schedule. Using this inflation to subsidise mining
has been a successful complement to transaction fees to secure the network.

LOL just saw Inaba's trust rating.  Has anyone ever had one so low?

Yes, receivership is serious.  I wonder what percentage of companies in receivership ever get out and resume business.  I'd GUESS some percentage very, very low.  Game over, finally. (I smelled it a mile away.)

The only thing you smelled was your upper lip.

As a side note,  Syke is lying again about BFL. Who knew? Oh wait... Everyone, cause that's all he does.

Anyone own these miners?

Like I mean an actually paying customer.  Grin

Want to get some feedback from them on the experiences with this company.

Still no one who is a "real" consumer?

I guess no one wants these as they are way over priced. Mind you what isn't these days?
859  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: [GUIDE] B's Moderated Biased & Opinionated Miner Sellers Trustworthiness Guide on: October 20, 2014, 12:57:26 PM
Of course, never intended to hide it though I am only asking them to take into consideration. Even without my comments, it is clear that they shipped and have a product that they sold from stock. It's their own product (despite not manufacturing their own chips).

I will only add fabricators that have a number of happy / sad customers. What you have stipulated are known agents or resellers and given Minersource's lack of refunds for some of their product lines I would rather not add Bitcrane based on that crappy company's recommendation. Bobsag has a so many wonky deals that if he is recommending it you want to have a long hard look at it. I'd prefer adding Bitcrane if customers come forward. Not seen any customers yet.

And at this point I think it is better to be clear that mining on the small or home scale is done like dinner, for the short term and possibly forever.

There might be some use for home scale mining for altcoins given the potential growth vs the difficulty of getting coins on exchange. Then again if they are hard to get on exchange there is little point to a coin then as well.


$1300 for 1THs is so 6 months ago! Lol. Who on earth would pay that much these days? You can buy an S4 and get 2THs for the same price.

That's why I'm waiting.  Even the S4 with a coupon is still a little overpriced.  You can pick up used Dragons in the $400ish range, so $800-900 should be the sweet spot.  But what do I know, Bitmain seems to be doing well.

860  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: Antminer U3: Decentralization continued. Order now, Ship on Nov. 5th on: October 18, 2014, 04:58:18 PM
Decentralization continued, really??.  Sorry Bitmain, while you guys have provided lots of good product to consumers the decentralization train left the station some time ago.

Why does everyone quote ck like he is a God? He's just one person, like everyone else. He has no additional knowledge of the market, like everyone else.

He isn't God. He is just right as Flying Hellfish and klondike_bar say. If you disagree then why not put up a case to rivals his? Unfortunately the numbers don't square and anyone who is looking forward understands this game of small mining is dead for profit motives.

Do you have any evidence to support some other conclusion? If you do then please share that with the community.

Now having said that. Maybe units with other purposes beyond mining or dual purpose and mining might be the way to decentralize mining this bee hive looking unit is a step in that direction.

This is the right way of thinking about this... but not a rice cooker. Think consumer electronics that require being on all the time. Wallets like the Trezor possibly or maybe storage NAS systems.

Look like the latest rice cooker!  Cheesy
