Ahh the bitpay session expired. :/

Is there a way to reinitiate it?
2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Swedish ASIC miner company kncminer.com on: November 29, 2013, 01:26:28 PM
Still showing as "in progress".

Should I pop by the bank to pay it or have they not got around to cancelling it?
3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Swedish ASIC miner company kncminer.com on: November 29, 2013, 01:22:45 PM
Got an order pending payment.

Is it still worth it to pay?

OR would it be cancelled?

Checked out using company vat.

Total: $ 10,145.50

That's about 6200.

Now I have an order number - pending payment.  Smiley

will keep trying to call through to see if I could reach them.

- Need to know if I can still checkout the 3TH / s that's in the online basket.
- If so also need to know if I can collect in person.

The first batch sold out. I still have one in my cart.    Roll Eyes

There is $150 shipping cost in which case one would most likely be liable for VAT - alternatively a return ticket to Stockholm is under 50.

Tried to call the to see if pickup is available. The number doesn't seem to go through.

I've now got a close friend willing to put in 25% - which is around 1.5k.   Smiley

I'm hoping ideally when it comes to the time I could collect it from them in person.

A trip to EU can't be all that bad.

Currently there seems to be fewer than 400 machines left in the first 1200 batch.

- Would anyone in the UK (ideally) be willing to poll in some money for one unit?
- Assuming present exchange rate, $10k is equivalent to around 6.1-6.3k.
- I would be able to put upto 1.5k cash forward at the most - however I would be far more comfortable if more people could chip in.
- Assuming the $10k poll is divided into 20 parts, each would be equivalent of $500 or 150Gh/s.
- I've got one in my basket but would be more comfortable to spilt it with others.
- My location has negligible electricity cost. Meaning low management cost.

Alternatively if there is someone else looking to do this - we can host at yours.  Wink

This is getting old. Wish they'll give some news.
11  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: Australia - USB Block Erupter Miner >300MH/s [Group Buy] on: May 07, 2013, 01:19:46 AM
Takes 4 months to break even.

I mean in for a penny in for a pound - better off getting a 10-20 a chip board from a dev.

 
12  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: Australia - USB Block Erupter Miner >300MH/s [Group Buy] on: May 07, 2013, 12:54:00 AM
1.99BTC each.

 Shocked

13  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: List of Avalon-Asic-Miner-Developers on: May 05, 2013, 07:33:40 PM
I think the first chipbatches will arrive in some months. And in this month avalon will provide a free miner design. That means its possible that no developers are needed at all to create a miner. But the miners created by the developers can only be tested once they can run the miner with a chip to test it out. In 4 weeks test-chips are sent out so that miner-developers can test their miner.

What i mean... it takes some time until the chips arrive anyway. And when they arrive the miners will be ready to be created. A ETA isnt needed because of that i think.

But maybe i misunderstood you.
right - they said they would provide a reference design.  But even if you use that you still have to get the PCBs ordered and the boards assembled.

Thats right. But i think there will be at least a month between reference design and chipdelivery. Enough time to make contracts or get the parts. And if the developers really can deliver as fast as they wish can only show the future. burnin plans 1000 units a week. I dont know if it will work out. Asic-companies very often have problems with their plans. Smiley

From burnin's thread I have found something very reassuring: He plans on doing a lot of stuff himself, but the part that is most time consuming, is contracted to another company that usually does this kind of stuff for electronics used in aviation.

Definitely.

Guys any idea when Avalon's blueprint is due?  Huh

Hoping someone could manage a high-density PCB.

Hey guys, Anyone in the UK interested in setting up a avalon chip group buy?

 Smiley I know guys are doing it all over the EU - however would feel better if some local chaps could go for batch together.
15  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: DIY Project based on the avalon design. on: April 30, 2013, 01:09:45 AM
If someone could come up with a orginal design with 40-50 or even 80-100 chips per module.  Roll Eyes

Just a matter of time before Avalon release their spec.
16  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: Can we make Avalon based ASIC? on: April 30, 2013, 12:08:19 AM
Do you want to design a new chip "ASIC" or design a miner from the avalon chips (0,282 GH/s) ?

Design a miner from the avalon chips (0,282 GH/s)  Smiley
17  Bitcoin / Hardware / Can we make Avalon based ASIC? on: April 29, 2013, 11:05:41 PM
How difficult it is to make an Avalon based DIY ASIC?

Do forgive me for sounding like a newbie - I tend to think of DIY as plug&play as long as you could find the right components & firmware - and I really want to know what would be the biggest challenge towards making a 50Gh/s + miner based off Avalon?  Smiley Because it possible to buy Avalon based ASIC chips, it should be in theory possible for DIYers to make miners today -  but is there anything preventing it from being done today?

What you could find today:
240 or 320 Avalon chips (282MH/s Avalon chips)
TP-LINK WR703N
PDU (should be easy to make?)
Extra parts: connector, fans, PSU, cooling

It's said that "communication protocol, reference board design provided in early May" for the DIYers - so basically the only thing the DIYers are waiting for is:

Control Unit (very challenging part?)




 Smiley

I've got a feeling I've over-simplified by a large margin - and left many important difficulty out - and would appreciate if someone could point some direction!

Can't wait until they have the 250GH/s demo unit.

Dan99 said it the best  ---------->  "$2955 for 50gh/s to Mars $2,795 for 6gh/s??"



classic switcharoo, promise one thing.. get people to sign up and show interest.. and then bayum!



What happens if you order the mars in a couple days and they take 3-4 months to get it to you and then they switch the "predicted" price of jupiter to 12k and then say thats gonna take another 7 months?


ill tell ya what happens.. You will end up  filling the sink with water and dunkin youre head in indefinitely! lolz



If they were not that kind of people or not that kind of company you would say nawww they wont do that!!


But now since they clearly knew the whole time they were not gonna be doing the 50ghs, you expect them to pull a switch again.





Might as well just said fek it we are taking pre orders.. lol




If i told you i was selling bio degradable penguins & i came out with a styrofoam duck would you buy it?


Pitch line: Cmon guys the abs plastic beak and feet is tough and resistant to breakage.  You will be able to take a hammer to it no problem..





Look this is BFL all over again - almost a year later. FPGA are easier to do - because there are already chips out there.

ASIC? Well you know the score.

I'm saying if they need upfront cost - they should be upfront about it!  Angry No shame about it. Show us a working prototype and we'll get behind it. Be straight - if you need 10k per 250GH/s unit - say it.

Don't go about this saying its about loyality, and peddle people FPGA that will be obsolete once it ships.
