I am not a programmer, developer, IT professional or even as tech savvy as I think I am.  Simply put, I am an intelligent end user.  I have invested time and money in hopes of learning to mine Bitcoin, educate myself about the Blockchain and it's potential, and yes, earn some money.  But my patience is at an end.  Every time I seek information on mining with my ASIC miners the posts all seem to be from 2014!  Very frustrating.

I have made a decision this evening that I would like to rid myself of my mining equipment on a best offer basis.  I am not after loads of money or dozens of bitcoins.  I just want the equipment I have to go to good use and not the local recycling plant.  I will consider every offer made in the next 72 hours and I would prefer to sell all the ASIC miner to a single buyer. 

Four (4) Bitmain Antminer S3+ ASIC units
One (1) Butterfly Labs Monarch ASIC Mining card 
One (1) Butterfly Labs Power Supply 1250 W Gold
I have most of the chords and accessories that accompanied these cards, but everything has been opened and used to varying degrees of success.

Anyone with interest in what I have to offer please email me:

Thanks!

-Tom

What sort of prices are you looking for?

Are you willing to use a respected forum escrow provider?

I'd consider it.
Something like 1/3 agreed upon value on shipment, 2/3 on delivery.

I'm looking to sell:

6 BTC or $1,500 for the lot including shipping

This thread is not really for selling items.  You will want to move thread to sales and within hardware.  That is where you sell miners.

Also with being low I suggest looking into escrow as you will need it for someone to do the deal.

Out of everything you have the PSU probably has the most value if it has actual PCIe connectors.

You might get $50 each for your S3+ and maybe $100 or so for your PSU.

You won't get $1500, actually I don't think even the S3+ cost that much when new.

Yes.

Too high?  Crazy low?  Some dialogue would help...

Kinda crazy high. You might get 350 to 4 for the whole lot.

I've done this calculation before:

When i buy a new antimer S7, i pay less than $1 per 6 Ghs of hashing power. My power usage is only about 0.3J/Ghs and i get 3 months of factory warrantee.

An old S3 hashes at 441 Ghs, and uses 0.77 J/Ghs (https://bitmaintech.com/productDetail.htm?pid=00020140630025130637RV8OhOwt06BC).

This is why i could potentially offer about $140 for the 3 Antminer S3 units (shipped to europe)

To be honest, i wouldn't know how to setup a Monarch. I know you either put them in a computer/server (so you'll need a fullblown PC or server running 24/7) or you need to make a special setup with liquid cooling and stuff... TBH, i'm not confortable learning that stuff.
So, unless you include a full manual, i cannot even bid on the monarch.

Unless OP is willing to use 100% forum escrow then i would not be sending any BTC first.

Agreed, i actually forgot to add this to my bid, but i think it's a no-brainer.
I wouldn't send a satoshi to somebody without massive green trust unless it's trough a trusted forum escrow, and i expect others not to trust me without using an escrow either.

Moca:
Best of luck with the S7...looks like a beast!
The Monarch came assembled with liquid cooling and connects via usb or PCI...

Kilo & Moca
Who is the escrow here?
Throw me a bone.
I'm a noob for a reason.

Honestly, I'd like to support the technology, but I don't know what it's capable of....
For example: What is a relay network?  How do I join one?  I have 20 Gb of space, I'd love to run a node, but I don't know how to start!  I can't find anyone willing to guide me.
Just seems like you want to bash a guy for trying to get a refund on a failed investment.

Hi man,
Sorry if i sounded harsh... This was certainly not intended. I just wanted to point out why my bid is so much lower than the bid you expected. You're just unlucky that the S7 came out recently, so nobody is going to pay $1500 for (700 + 3 * 441) = 2Th when they can buy an S7 with more than double the hashrate for half the price (and half the power consumption).

20 Gb won't be enough to run a full node, i used to run a full node a couple months ago, and it used about 60 Gb at that time.

Escrows can be found here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=855778.0

It's a friendly community, so if you have questions, don't hesistate to ask Wink

No not calling you a scammer or trying to bash you just looking out for anyone that is interested in purchasing these.

Check the escrow list mocacinno provided above, most if not all run a very professional service and are trusted members here.

If you don't get any help on this forum you can always try the new bitcoin forum here: https://forum.bitcoin.com but i would only use a escrow provider from this forum, they have been around longer and have built trust here.
