Just a poll to get a sense of what bASIC customers are doing now that the first "due diligence" meeting went south.

Hey Gigavps - shouldnt you be laughing at people for not investing in pirate like you did ?

Whats your next gem of advice hey - oh thats right, BFL & Inaba = legit.

I think there is a picture of him hanging out with Pirateat40 in Las Vegas on these forums somewhere.

EDIT: I think this is the picture of gigavps and a bunch of others having dinner with Pirateat40 in vegas? If I am wrong, I Apologise. Smiley

I was thinking about ordering from bASIC months back, but chose BFL. Out of all the companies, I feel BFL has been up front and honest with their problems and delays (inb4 hate). No chinese new year crap. But actual reasons why they're having trouble getting stuff out the door. Lots of work has been put into it for it just to be a scam. And I could track down a few in the company quite easily if it all was just a scam. As for bASIC and the other companies, I just don't trust them as much as I do BFL. And that is very little at the moment.

The problem is: good scam never looks like a scam. You rigth, lots of work has been put into it but is a this job not worth many millions of dollars? Every good fraudster needs to work hard to earn. Only the effect of their work would convinced me. If they are in the stage of series production should have a working prototype. I do not trust in any company because there is no working prototype or any proof of their work, Only ads that encourage you to buy their invisible product. I think on the ads  (and several books about ASIC) they put the most time and money.  If they will have proof of of their work I will change my mind.

All orders are being refunded, it's over.

https://www.btcfpga.com/forum/index.php?topic=1048.0

Quoted from the site.

Quote from: cablepair
"First I want everyone to know - that all that nonsense that was posted on the Bitcointalk forum last night was not me. In fact I have not been on that forum in quite a while. My forum account was compromised and some people had some fun with it. I can't even get into the account now - so I am assuming that the admins checked the IP address and realized it was not me posting like a madman and locked my account for me. Either that or the intruder changed the password on me. Either way please DO NOT trust or believe anything that has been or is being posted by my Bitcointalk forum account. I plan to email theymos in a few moments to get my account back - I will update you when I once again have control over the account.

Many people have contacted me about buying these 16,000 chips - God I wished I had them, but I am sorry that post was not made by me and I do not have 16,000 chips to sell. I have to pay the second part of the deposit to receive the chips and I am not sure I will even be able to do that - although I am not giving up on the notion. I decided to not accept the loan that was offered to me to keep this company going. With a 90% refund rate there really is no point.

EVERY SINGLE CUSTOMER WILL BE REFUNDED. PERIOD.

I have the list of BTC Refunds and should be making those today.
All other CC orders will automatically be refunded today.

I hope you can please accept my deep apologies, I thought I could pull this off but it was just too much of an undertaking for me, I feel ashamed and embarrassed and I am so sorry that I could not come through for you. Everyone will receive their refunds. As a matter of fact I am starting on them now.

This will take a little time, we are talking thousands of refunds. I wish there was just a "refund all" button but unfortunately there is not one and I have to do this manually.

this forum will be locked from this point forward - if I need to tell you anything else I will post again otherwise you will not hear from me - your refund will come automatically and theres no reason for communication."

Well its been one hell of a ride but glad to say its over with the chaos.  Guess I will get in on the Avalon Batch #2 as soon as I see some working units.  Tom thanks for trying at least.

Bitcoin is like a variation of Schrödinger's Cat. Everything about it is both scam and fully legit at the same time until you open the box.
