Dear BlightyCoin users and interested parties.
Important things are in the pipeline. To cut things short, BlightyCoin is about to become a full time endeavour. This is in no small part due to the high interest we've seen so far: it's been an exciting ride!
When we started BlightyCoin we were two people with an idea and relevent skills. We were expecting this to be a hobby: providing a couple of machines a month or thereabouts, and getting a little something for our time. However, we've had unprecidented levels of demand, almost to the point where we can't cope. It's not a bad problem to have of course, and it seems our existing customers are satisfied with the products we sell.
This change will mean more resources can be thrown at the business: you can expect higher levels of support, quicker turn-around times and possibly new and exciting offerings that we have planned (one of which being our potential hosted service
in a new datacenter).
However, because of these changes we have had to reconsider our pricing. The older pricing is simply not sustainable for a truly commercial enterprise, as when we launched we were not expecting to devote so much time and resources into the project. Additionally, we're anticipating some changes in supplier that might unfortunately drive up cost, so we've had to anticipate this. Therefore, from the 26th of June onwards, new prices for each model have been drafted and are as such:
|'Lite'|| Mounted ||£360|
|'Lite'|| Cased ||£410|
|'Duo'|| Mounted ||£540|
|'Duo'|| Cased ||£600|
There is good news however: anyone who has contacted us via email, forum message, or on our order form
will be locked into the older pricing model. We're not about to pull a bait and switch, and we're not trying some high pressure "buy it now" technique. This will extend to anyone
who expresses interest or has comment before the 26th of June, so send us a little message now if you think you might be going with BlightyCoin in the future!
During this time of Flux, we have various legal and logistical issues to resolve, as well as one of us having a scheduled holiday coming up. As a result, we'll be taking a little break from building miners, from the 26th of June to the 11th of July. This will allow us to get our paperwork in order and get us set up fully set up for the future.
As a result of this, Thursday the 23rd of June is the latest date before the stated break that we can promise to deliver before we come back: so if you are interested in obtaining a miner within the month, you will unfortunately have to be quick!
Anyway, comments are welcome: we realise that price changes in this direction are never good, but it is
good news: we'll be able to fulfil more orders than ever before, and we'll be branching out to some new and exciting markets. Who knows, we might even update the crappy website
All the best,
Toby and Anthony
