@sidehack and @kilo17

Been lurking on this board for couple months. I'm rooting for you guys! I'll be first in line to buy a community miner if the stars ever align. I'm a small time hobby miner (very small time - only 1th on used equipment) but it's too much fun! Wish I could contribute to the effort but I ain't smart enough so I'll just be a cheerleader on the sidelines.

(Had to post here bc I got tired of looking at that same last post for 2 plus weeks  Grin)

Best wishes!!

It looks an awful lot like it's fallen through.

Very sorry to hear,but I expected that.....Bitmain will be the last to sell miners for "home" use  Cry

But with the diff rising & rising who can afford to mine at home with ASICs.....only folks like philipma1957  Cool

Like I said at the start, it wasn't my project; I was to be hired for design work. As of now the first milestone that I know of is about two months behind schedule and I've had about three minutes of communication with the contact since the first week of August so I really don't know what's going on, if it's still moving or if I'm just out of the communication loop.

I'm still working on my own stuff, and a few things might actually be showing progress (for reference, on my desk right now are samples of two different 14/16nm current-gen ASICs) and if I can successfully run out a new-version stick or two I can roll all the take from that into a home miner design of my own, like I've been wanting to do for going on two years now. Being broke sucks. I'm working on a whole list of design projects right now, hoping at least some of them will pan out and bring in some revenue. If any of y'all are interested in GPU rigs I'm looking to start manufacture on kit to help 'em run off server PSUs only (4-Molex and ATX24 adapters and the like); also working on improved redesigns of my server PSU boards and a stout USB hub and two new Compac designs.

Lack of communication is the worst.

My bet is there was nothing to communicate............"Hey we ain't gettin any chips" woulda been nice,but then sidehack would have stopped ALL work on them or something & then it all woulda been a waste.

Actually you know what, I went and got this mixed up with a different project so the specifics of my "there's been no communication" paragraph back there is inaccurate.

But the general gist is still true - I haven't heard anything out of Kilo in a while.

I'm still working on stuff, and he'll end up benefiting from that work because I was paid up front for the work. Hopefully at least one of the two ASIC manufacturers I have chips from (and actually someone else is talking to me about design which might bring a third chip into light, who knows if he'll have any luck there) will deal and I can round up enough money to get a project off the ground. It'd be pretty sweet to have an S1-refit board prototyped before the end of the year, at which point I could probably raise a bunch of money for manufacture.

Well at least you have a nice pile of my old s1's and 3's to use their frames and heatsinks for proto'ing and sales once done Cheesy

Between my own, and yours, and stuff I've picked up from others, I have about 50 chassis between S1, S3 and S5 to play with.

I have 4x S1 and 4x S3 that I have been saving just for this project. I figure that nobody wants them anyway except for maybe you sidehack, but seeing as shipping rates are unreasonable to ship whole units from me to you that is not an option. Besides, this project could take off at any moment, there is no harm in my holding on to them.

If I ever get to production, I'm thinking of offering a "core exchange" kind of thing where you'd get free shipping on a preassembled unit if you send in a retired miner. That way I could continue to offer preassembled units to people who didn't want to do the swaps themselves.

But we'll see. Right now I'll be happy if I can get a stickminer going. I'm waiting for one outfit to send me some datasheets so I can at least start hardware design.

I've got most of the power and controls at least conceptually ironed out, but not the specifics yet. I need to start playing around testing regulators and whatnot.

Two different 16 nm chips you say.
I suspect you are under NDA, but if I speculate and say this might be Bit fury and Bitmain.
Correct me if I'm wrong.
So from here you steeped on ground level 0 at least
