Innosilicon official reponse to Bitmine lies - Let the evidence do the talking


On behalf of Innosilicon Inc, the proud real owner of A1 BTC ASIC and A2 LTC ASIC, I would like to make it clear that we are very shocked to learn that Bitmine shamelessly pointed their finger to us for their business failure due to a series of their own engineering mishaps and reckless business risk taking. Innosilicon has done nothing wrong here and we continue to deliver our quality product even till this date. We have full evidence (email exchanges, legal contract, shipping record, business plans, apology letters etc) that Bitmine management tried to use Innosilicon as scapegoat to mislead their customers for their failure to fulfill their customer orders. We would like to provide full evidence to assist those who filed lawsuit against Bitmine. Our contact info is listed below and let us suit Bitmine liars. The world deserves to know the truth.


1. A1 chip came out on time and working. Chips were fully delivered at normal 28nm foundry yield to Bitmine with Bitmine CEO email acknowledgement and appreciation. Full amount of ASIC were delivered and tested with clear grade marking and there is no excuse for Bitmine not to deliver their mining machines. It is Bitmine who failed to turn working A1 into good miners to customers. In fact, they received our 1st batch of over 50K A1 chips at cost in early January of 2014 yet failed to produce working miners till April, at that time, BTC market was very hot and miners were in huge demand yet they failed to capitalize. Even then, Bitmine A1 Miner system was reported still not stable which is the biggest reason why they missed market windows. In these two critical months they received another over big batch of low price chips ahead of anyone which were enough to fulfill their customer miner orders. The only reason of their failure to produce miners were their system PCB design and DCDC design flaws. This is due to their poor engineering issues, thus wasted a lot of money by making tons of failed circuit boards, not due to our A1 chip issue. They are the one who is responsible for the failure of customer delivery. In the meantime, another Chinese miner manufacturer Dragon Miner came in after them and started to deliver working miners in late Feb and quickly ramped up very high volume with A1 directly purchasing from us with much higher cost month after month. On the other hand, Bitmine sat with the piles of working A1 chips and could not produce working miners. Yet they shamelessly blamed on all their failure on Innosilicon!

2. Innosilicon never violated any agreement therefore Bitmine knew they could not even think of legal battle. The A1 project became joint investment in Oct 2013 when they could not fund the project by following the previous contract funding terms. So they asked Innosilicon to step in to fund half of the mask fee with a contract amendment where it stated that Innosilicon have the full rights to sell the chips in the open market and Bitmine does not have the exclusive rights of the ASIC. If you read the amendment, you will see that why they absolutely don't deserve the exclusive rights for A1 chip. They were not forced to enter the agreement amendment, they should thank us for the investment to save the whole project.


3. The reason why Bitmine had to apologize to Innosilicon with offical letter is that they themselves later violated the contract amendment by falsely declaring to the whole community that Bitmine own the exclusive rights of A1 and threaten lawsuit against anyone who buy A1 Chip from Innosilicon directly. Obviously this was totally false and the breach of our amendment and they had to apologize or facing lawsuit.


4. We have every evidence to show that Innosilicon developed and own 100% of the A1 ASIC intellectual property and our company is a world renown IP company with excellent ASIC design skills. Innosilicon not only independently developed 28nm A1 BTC ASIC, it also quickly developed A2 LTC ASIC. Both quickly became No. 1 in the market. Our business is all over the world and enjoy stellar reputation with zero complaint from anyone. Protecting IP rights is of paramount importance to our company and we never had any design IP from Bitmine. Bitmine was previously only 2 person company who had zero chip design experience. Can you believe that Bitmine could develop most advanced ASIC with their background? We stated in the contract that any design contribution from each company belongs to each company. Bitmine has zero actual ASIC design contribution in the chip. All they did was to provide us their system input and output files for us to simulate our design.


5. If you ask us, we have a lot to say why Bitmine failed  to keep their promise to us and to their customers. 1st, Bitmine used the pre-order money from customers to build/purchase their own mining farms (tried one in Swissland and one in Iceland) and conducted risky bitcoin trading, in both cases, they lost big money. A1 would have been a lot more successful if they did their job right. I'd to say that the real problem for Bitmine is their weak management on risk and poor technical execution in a market  that is full of competitors and time to market is of great importance. They had 2 months to prepare their miner design before our ASIC came out yet they did a terrible job in that after 4 months, their miner still don't work right and customers were all angry and  they used us as excuses.  I have many facts documented that how they failed so many times before producing a working miners. They made several big mistakes in rushing their production and wasted a lot of materials and chips and made us very very upset. We delivered chips marked with grades according to contract and they knew it. To this date, they still did not pay for some agreed chip shipment fees and we had to cover their unpaid shipment fees.


We are saddened by Bitmine's bankruptcy and failure to fulfill their customer promise. We are shocked that Bitmine management used baseless accusation as excuses to default their refund on their customers and cover up their business risk takig and engineering mistakes. We have every evidence to show that Innosilicon has faithfully followed our contract and contract amendment and it is Bitmine that grossly mishandled their miner design and business in a very unprofessional manner. It is very obvious that A1 chip has been a huge success, on time and with quality , yet A1 miners from Bitmine did not ship on time and with quality to their customers 12 months after. Isn't it clear that who did their job right, who did it wrong?


We reserve every rights to file lawsuit against Bitmine management on spreading baseless rumors to damage Innosilicon reputation. Should anyone need more information and legal help, our legal department is happy to assist.

I was pleased with my A2 based machines as well.

IS, do you intend to publish said evidence?

They withstood a lot on miners.  The dragon 1T in many places was put in it's paces and amazingly it seemed to keep ticking.   It was a great miner in it's time.

Only weakness was they went with low quality PSU, but I can't blame them to much for that I'm sure it was a business decision.

Clarifying:

First would like to  say Hi to "A" Innosilicon" and to G&C Bitmin.ch.  W

What am about to say will definitely get some ppls upset, even though am trying to stay neutral and anonymous, some ppls might have clue who is writing those lines.

The fact is that YES InnoSilicon indeed manufactured (well they didn't Taiwan foundry did ) grade A,B,C,D they HAVE INDEED provided on purpose grade "D" IC's to Bitmain.ch.

they sold grade "A" in China local market and were laughing about it saying "you want buy from Swiss guys go ahead we only gave them Grade "D" IC's all grade "A" were sold locally and at a extremely low price to a HUGH local reseller (which no need to state the name here but all know who am talking about)that kept the biggest part of the market.

They actually sold IC to this Chinese manufacturer about 2,3 times cheaper than they sold to Bitmain.ch.

They have "demonstrated " to Chinese customer how to test IC, saw demonstration in my own EYE.

Test Procedure:  "put multimeter on NEUTRAL, use one side  of the multimeter on the outside of the IC other end  inside the IC if the result is less than 0.4 IC is shit. etc ...

Mr "A"  is a clever guy my opinion is that they used Swiss money when they freshly graduated from University in Wuhan once they saw the potential and the advantage they had they decided "F.. it" we will make much more money if selling ourselves" cmon guys you know China "no pattern no NDA nothing works when it's not between 2 Chinese companies.

conclusion:  Swiss made a Hugh mistake ignoring China potential market for BTC back than, they thought EU, USA, AU all markets but didn't think about China.

InnoSilicon mistake: too young too greedy, could have given a share of the cake to the Swiss that originally put the money on the table (even though is true wasn't their own money was poor pre-order ppls money) on the other end Swiss for sure would have done EXACTLY same thing so no need feel sorry for them Smiley

1 question to Mr "A" Innosilicon:

BEFORE the Swiss Bitmin.ch came to you how much money did you have in your own bank account??? enough to launch NANOTECHNOLOGY 28NM in Taiwan foundries??? or you are saying you guys have a foundry capable of 28NM Tech in your back garden Smiley
all are wrong Bitmin.ch using other peoples money gambling with money that didn't belong to them.

Is funny in my opinion Bitmin are upset coz they played innocent ppls and they got played themselves Smiley

no one is honest 100% in this BTC business which is why it could profit so much money, it's a rule the fastest you make money the fastest you will loose it.

Conclusion: ALL of those manufacturer, developers, Foundries, didn't suffer nothing from all this,  those who really suffered are those poor guys that had some small savings aside like 2-3k$ decide will invest in BTC hoping they will make some money.  They are I suppose millions of poor ppls that lost a small amount in the eyes of InnoSilicon & Bitmin.ch but for them it may have meant a lot. all of those out there who used innocent ppls money, if you believe in luck what you all did to those poor ppls in the end will come back to you "What goes around, comes around"

Sorry for all those poor people out there still waiting for their Miners wherever they  bought them from  , KNC miners, Black Arrow (no comments Smiley, and those poor ppls that have used miners for 2 months than have it sitting in their garage coz it will never reach ROI and made them lose money instead.

Only small regards goes in my opinion to SpoonDoolies-Tech they always have been quite honest, but than again never did any deals with them.

that's all ... for now

The fact his that YES InnoSilicon for facts since I have personnaly had the opportunity to test all chips grades A,B,C,D they HAVE INDEAD provided on purpose grade "D" IC's to Bitmain.ch.

they sold grade "A" in China local market and were loughing about it saying "you want buy from Suiss guys go ahead we only gave them Grade "D" IC's all grade "A" were sold locally and at a extremly low price to LKETC that kept the biggest part of the market.

The actually sold IC to LKETC about 2,3 times cheaper than they sold to Bitmain.ch.

They have "teached" Chineese customer how to test IC, saw demonstration in my own EYE.

That is a heck of a story if this is true.   Can you go into more details?

I mean it seems customer would have the chips before they could test.   If they shipped grade based on region that is a huge thing to suggest.

Asking Bitmin Why didn't you test IC's before?

They replied:  IC's come in batches of 5000 we cannot open them they are sealed, only foundries knows what they preduce.

Issu is that this grades from what Bitmin.ch said, they were not aware of that. Later only found out that the Reference No on the IC itself was a "code for grade"   A1....-6 was grade A A1...-3 was grade C etc ...

Makes it  impossible to test IC manually 1 by 1 knowing 1 miner 1T needed 40 IC's normal mode and 32 IC's Turbo mode. would have taked how long to test 50 000 IC 1 by 1.

I think the bigger thing is saying they kept high grade for local market.   I would agree testing a batch of chips would be a lot of time, and only done if they thought it was crap chips.

Do you have any proof of anything you have said?

We would like to provide full evidence to assist those who filed lawsuit against Bitmine. Our contact info is listed below and let us suit Bitmine liars. The world deserves to know the truth.


1. A1 chip came out on time and working. Chips were fully delivered at normal 28nm foundry yield to Bitmine with Bitmine CEO email acknowledgement and appreciation. Full amount of ASIC were delivered and tested with clear grade marking and there is no excuse for Bitmine not to deliver their mining machines. It is Bitmine who failed to turn working A1 into good miners to customers.

This is due to their poor engineering issues, thus wasted a lot of money by making tons of failed circuit boards, not due to our A1 chip issue. They are the one who is responsible for the failure of customer delivery. In the meantime, another Chinese miner manufacturer Dragon Miner came in after them and started to deliver working miners in late Feb and quickly ramped up very high volume with A1 directly purchasing from us with much higher cost month after month. On the other hand, Bitmine sat with the piles of working A1 chips and could not produce working miners. Yet they shamelessly blamed on all their failure on Innosilicon!
This really sounds like a one sides explanation of what happened and I think that neither Bitmine / Innosilicon is innocent here. Bitmine claimed to have a contract with Innosilicon. They claimed that Innosilicon agreed to not sell the chips for less than a certain price. Innosilicon was definitely selling the A1 chips for much less than Bitcoin's "cost." to their partners in China. I find it very strange that Innosilicon had a perfectly working PCB design back in January/February of 2014 and Bitmine did not. Just because Innosilicon's marketing person is claiming that they 100% own the intellectual property (IP) for the A1 chip does not show anyone any shred of proof. Bitmine claimed all along that they owned the rights to the chip and Innosilicon was not allowed to sell the chips to anyone except them. There is absolutely nothing Bitmine could do because the laws in China are so weak when it comes to stolen IP. Think about it! Even Apple cannot protect themselves in China and they are the most valuable tech company in the world. How could Bitmine ever have any chance to sue Innosilicon in China. This is a joke!

2. Innosilicon never violated any agreement therefore Bitmine knew they could not even think of legal battle. The A1 project became joint investment in Oct 2013 when they could not fund the project by following the previous contract funding terms. So they asked Innosilicon to step in to fund half of the mask fee with a contract amendment where it stated that Innosilicon have the full rights to sell the chips in the open market and Bitmine does not have the exclusive rights of the ASIC. If you read the amendment, you will see that why they absolutely don't deserve the exclusive rights for A1 chip. They were not forced to enter the agreement amendment, they should thank us for the investment to save the whole project. Again Mr. Inno-cent-silicon Sir...This argument is BULLSHIT >>> SHOW US THE AGREEMENT if you are so innocent and truthful!!!


3. The reason why Bitmine had to apologize to Innosilicon with offical letter is that they themselves later violated the contract amendment by falsely declaring to the whole community that Bitmine own the exclusive rights of A1 and threaten lawsuit against anyone who buy A1 Chip from Innosilicon directly. Obviously this was totally false and the breach of our amendment and they had to apologize or facing lawsuit. Again please show us the apology or the agreement you speak of. I bet it does not exist. Just show us the part that speaks about Innosilicon having the right to sell the A1 chips on the open market or the ownership and who the IP belonged to. Again I bet it does not exist.


4. We have every evidence to show that Innosilicon developed and own 100% of the A1 ASIC intellectual property and our company is a world renown IP company with excellent ASIC design skills. Innosilicon not only independently developed 28nm A1 BTC ASIC, it also quickly developed A2 LTC ASIC. Both quickly became No. 1 in the market. Our business is all over the world and enjoy stellar reputation with zero complaint from anyone. Protecting IP rights is of paramount importance to our company and we never had any design IP from Bitmine. Bitmine was previously only 2 person company who had zero chip design experience. Can you believe that Bitmine could develop most advanced ASIC with their background? We stated in the contract that any design contribution from each company belongs to each company. Bitmine has zero actual ASIC design contribution in the chip. All they did was to provide us their system input and output files for us to simulate our design.Seems very strange because before Bitmine got involved with Innosilicon they had an excellent reputation and sold and DELIVERED on many Avalon miners in 2013. Innosilicon is claiming that Bitmine did provide their system input and output files used for simulation but then saying that they provided nothing to the project. What about the fact that Bitcoin provided you the MONEY TO FUND THE PROJECT? I know that Bitcoin paid $millions to Innosilicon and in the end Innosilicon was the only party who made out. Many individuals lost A LOT OF MONEY, many families lost money and some lives were destroyed because of what happened. Bitmine made MILLIONS from the A1 chips and funded the A2 chips with that money and then made even many more MILLIONS. For Innosilicon to say they feel sorry for all the people that lost money is insulting!!! You contributed to destroying the Bitcoin market by flooding cheap A1 chips on the market and put a lot of your competition out of business. Now you happen to have the A2 chip which is the only chip making an ROI right now. That seems pretty convenient.


5. If you ask us, we have a lot to say why Bitmine failed  to keep their promise to us and to their customers. 1st, Bitmine used the pre-order money from customers to build/purchase their own mining farms (tried one in Swissland and one in Iceland) and conducted risky bitcoin trading, in both cases, they lost big money. A1 would have been a lot more successful if they did their job right. I'd to say that the real problem for Bitmine is their weak management on risk and poor technical execution in a market  that is full of competitors and time to market is of great importance. They had 2 months to prepare their miner design before our ASIC came out yet they did a terrible job in that after 4 months, their miner still don't work right and customers were all angry and  they used us as excuses.  I have many facts documented that how they failed so many times before producing a working miners. They made several big mistakes in rushing their production and wasted a lot of materials and chips and made us very very upset. We delivered chips marked with grades according to contract and they knew it. To this date, they still did not pay for some agreed chip shipment fees and we had to cover their unpaid shipment fees. Again, I doubt that either Bitmine or Innosilicon is innocent here. It is easy to make claims without showing any evidence at all.


We are saddened by Bitmine's bankruptcy and failure to fulfill their customer promise. We are shocked that Bitmine management used baseless accusation as excuses to default their refund on their customers and cover up their business risk takig and engineering mistakes. We have every evidence to show that Innosilicon has faithfully followed our contract and contract amendment and it is Bitmine that grossly mishandled their miner design and business in a very unprofessional manner. It is very obvious that A1 chip has been a huge success, on time and with quality , yet A1 miners from Bitmine did not ship on time and with quality to their customers 12 months after. Isn't it clear that who did their job right, who did it wrong?


We reserve every rights to file lawsuit against Bitmine management on spreading baseless rumors to damage Innosilicon reputation. Should anyone need more information and legal help, our legal department is happy to assist.

Again, I would really like to see the countless documentation of evidence that Mr. Joey Jiang of Innosilicon talks about here. Innosilicon is trying to protect their reputation as a business and I can understand that but they are also in possession of stolen money in fact! Bitmine took $Millions from their customers for pre-orders, and then paid $Millions to Innosilicon. Your really not-so-Inno-cent because regardless of what went down you still took money from a lot of people and those people did not get what they paid for. It does not make it right just because you can now point the blame back on Bitmine. Your still in business and Bitmine is not. They have gone bankrupt and that means that they had to disclose everything. They had to disclose all monies and accounting to the courts of their country. This is how bankruptcy works. I would be more careful of how you point the blame and call Innosilicon so innocent because people could still sue you for possessing their money. Oh wait...your in CHINA so you do not give a fuck and think you can just steal from anyone outside of China. I have nothing against people of China and really people like you give your own country a bad name so you should be shamed. Companies like Innosilicon do business and if they happen to steal, rip off, or cause people/companies outside of China grave harm then they view it as just an added bonus to doing business. You should be ashamed of yourself Innosilicon for coming on here so many months later and claiming your reputation is clean.

edited: I just want to say that there is in fact mostly honest and good companies in China. I have done business with some companies in China that were a pleasure to work with and they were some of the most honest people. It is more rare to run into a company that is dishonest and this can happen anywhere. It has nothing to do with China specifically as companies rip people off in every country. However, the laws in China are setup in a way that just happens to make it very easy for companies based in China to get away with stealing and worse.

IMPORTANT: Innosilicon and Bitmine both did some really shady stuff. I could be wrong but I have a feel that more is going to come out and that neither company acted ethically. The only difference is that Bitmine may have broken laws by taking pre-orders and not delivering products. Whereas Innosilicon may in fact be a very upstanding company in China as they say. The only difference here is that they did not break any laws because no one will ever do anything to them in China---------So I guess we can say that Innosilicon did nothing wrong by their standards.

Oh and I really hope I am completely wrong about anything negative I said about Innosilicon. If they can provide evidence then they can have the right to call themselves innocent, but with just worthless claims and words...in my eyes they are no better than Bitmine.

I really hope that Innosilicon does provide the Bitcoin community something solid other than just their marketing directors words.

One last thing I want to point out is that it is very strange that the A1 Dragon miner company along with other A1 clones were so successful. We should be asking why those companies were so successful with producing and selling miners with the A1 chips.....WHY IS THAT? WHY....did every other company that tried to produce and sell A1 miners fail? I am not sure if there was many others but it seems like every company outside of China that tried to produce and sell A1 based miners failed miserably. The other companies I know of that sold A1 miners outside of China were Bitmine of course and then there was one called AMT and I think another called nTek Computers. They all had really bad problems and their businesses failed.

There must be something to that because it cannot just be a coincidence that the companies Innosilicon sold A1 chips to in China prospered with great success and the ones in Europe and America failed.

hmmm.....I am just saying....  Huh

As far as chips the A1 was a great chip.  Companies did make ton's off of it such as LKETC.   The dragon 1T's were great machines and ran without any problem.

I find it interesting the low level posting sladner'ish things.   But I think it is most likely a troll.   I don't see proof they made bitmine go bankrupt.  But I could be missing something.

I just hope they are working on next gen I would like to see what their chip turns out to be.

Well the cocks will be coming home to roost for innosilicon if indeed they sold bitmine.ch grades c/d chips at over twice the market value for grade a chips. Question is, where is the evidence to dispell that?

Wow, folks, thanks all for your attention and replies. Many of you have commented on your positive experience on A1 or A2 AISC or Miners from whoever suppliers. Thank you! For those who express doubt and cynical views, thank you as well, although some of your misleading "insider" comments are laughable. Everyone is entitled to expressing your view point. Prejudice, lies, stereotype, misleading "insider" info are all part of the life and part of this forum. That is why I had to make our voice heard.  We took notice about Bitmine letter only just recently when a Swiss Magazine approached us for comment.  We were furious as they lied to deflect customer anger.
 
1. A1 ASIC Intellectual Property Issue. Bitmine claimed someone "stole" the A1 intellectual property from them using no fact but a racial stereotype to imply that all companies in China don't innovate but steal. That is simply radical discrimination. The truth is Bitmine people did not and still don't know a thing inside of A1 ASIC.  Let me put an open challenge to Bitmine: show us a A1 FPGA demo or even a block diagram inside A1!  By the way, the FPGA lab demo Bitmine put on youTube was made by Innosilicon FPGA in the Innosilicon lab and all they did was taking our video and edit out our Logo without our permission.  What a joke! The truth is that Bitmine people have never designed any chip product ever and Innosilicon quickly rolled out a more sophisticated A2 LTC ASIC plus A2 terminator Miner in just 2 months after A1 announcement.  Both A1 and A2 ASIC share the same unique command structure, same customerized package which no one else in the world has other than Innosilicon. Who is the real design team here?
 
2.  Does Bitmine own the exclusive A1 ASIC rights? Of course not. Even Bitmine people don't dare to claim that in legal term or swear under oath. Some "insider" here made us laugh. Bitmine in essense is only a Innosilicon A1 chip reseller. Any claim that Dragon Miner ever got A1 from Innosilicon at lower cost or higher quality at any given time than Bitmine is false and baseless. It is Bitmine 's fault for failing to design a competitive miner.
 
3. Did Bitmine receive A1 ASIC in agreed quantity and quality? Definitely, A year ago, 7 months after 1st A1 ASIC batch shipment, Bitmine sent us a thank-you email on the completion of A1 chip order fulfillment and asked us to support their big mining farm expansion in Iceland. Tested chips shipping to Bitmine consistently contains clear gradation marking (A, B, NG) by the test assembly house. Bitmine was informed from day 1 on the gradation and acknowledged that they received every chip they ordered with the confirmed yield.  A1-2 to A1-6 are purely based on manufacturing batch dates and has nothing to do with chip gradation. There is no excuse why Bitmine did not have A1 to fulfill customer pre-order while 7 months later continue to use A1 AISC and miners to expand their mining facility.  After all, clearly lack of A1 is not the reason why they failed to fulfill customer orders or could not roll out A1 miners ahead of Dragon Miner, .
 
Innosilicon is a reputable company with a decade of proud record of delivering leading IC/IP products all over the world with great customer satisfaction.  A large number of our customers are outside of China and we have employees in China, US and Canada.  A1 and A2 ASIC were all made under extreme short notice with Innosilicon engineering genius while our competitors such as Cointerra and Hashfast failed miserably. Our record speaks for itself and we are very proud of it.  We used to have some sympathy for Bitmine's business failure. But now we don't. They screwed up big time, they lied to their customers,  they lied about A1 intellectual property and exclusivity, they wasted customer pre-order money building risky mining farms.  They can't blame others for their own wrongdoing! That is clear if you read our letters carefully and do your own thinking.
 
Some of you want to see us publish evidence, sure, that is why we came out and stated that we have them ready to help any legal case for the court of the law. Due to confidential nature, our legal department is not yet ready to send all the signed contract to the open forum for outsider's viewing pleasure. Afterall, some of you are not trial judge here and we are not under any legal obligation to disclose legal contract to the open forum to prove our innocence. We don't need to. However, if you have a legal case pending our help (or anyone want to visit our office to read them), you are welcome to ask your lawyer to contact us for our evidence assistance.  We have evidence behind everything I say here and we want you to know that.
 
Again, thank you for your interest and opinions.

For the record, I offered to look over some of the documents and verify 1) their existence and 2) their contents, under NDA if required.
