Does anyone know if it's even possible for hard copies of FPGAs to get that sort of performance? Wouldn't Avalon have done that if it would have worked?

Looks like HardCopy produces FPGA prototypes as part of the ASIC design process.

Quote
The methodology you use to create HardCopy ASICs allows you to seamlessly prototype your system with Stratix® IV FPGAs and completely prepare your system for production, prior to ASIC design handoff. Altera's HardCopy Design Center uses a proven turnkey process to implement low-cost, low-power, functionally-equivalent, pin-compatible HardCopy IV devices. This methodology is more than just a fast ASIC development methodology, it is the ultimate system development methodology.

I think it is irrelevant what Altera can deliver, hell is going to freeze over before forum members place money with anything connected with Tom.

Until when they decide to accept credit card.

My anger against what is wrong in the Bitcoin community is productive:

Have you not noticed the "hope this is real" posts?  While I don't think this project can be effectively re-branded before BFL delivers even if there genuinely are new owners (and I'm yet to be convinced that there are), there are definitely still people hoping to buy cheap next generation mining units ASAP.

Apparently a "huge corporate electronics manufacturer" has resorted to libel and is now attacking BFL, bASIC, and Avalon—all at once. And to add to the word power, look at their excellent spelling!

  • anyway
  • devision
  • givin
  • its
  • saleries
  • setup
  • months
  • supossid
  • disapation
  • longetivity
  • cleaver
  • none sense
  • un revealed
  • conman

Obviously the same style of writing we've seen under the "old" management.

Ari Asman is the forth from left in white outfit.

At least the person exist. But, the question is, is somebody simply using his name representing him?



The phone number is correct.

The phone number is correct.

Look again Phinn.  The Iraqi phone number for the real Can Electric is +964 750 344 6565.  The number on the revamped bASIC site is +964 750 344 6566.  The real Can Electric doesn't hyphenate the company name, either.

This actually crosses the line from mere incompetence into outright fraud and Ari Asmar should be contacting Tom via lawyers with a "please explain".

All I can say is that this is Bitcoin. I don't believe it until I see six confirmations.

According the email from Ari, he dont know the name of tom. Maybe someone can let him to know the name of tom. I dont know it myself or I would have provided it to them already.

As far as we know, his name is Thomas Van Riper.

He got a Bitcoin vanity licence plate last year, so Ari's lawyers could probably track him that if anyone has a picture of the licence plate (it was on his Google+ account but he's deleted that account now and I can't find a picture in Google cache but he may have posted it here as well - it was in March 2012).

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=66927.msg778314#msg778314

Dave had access to the merchant account so he should be able to provide all of the details related to that account.

The domain registration info for BTCFPGA uses the PO box address.

http://www.ip-adress.com/whois/btcfpga.com

This was the street address for his computer repair shop.  It's also the address given on several domains Tom registered.

121 Lyon Street, Fulton, NY 13069 - New York,

Tel: (315) 514-0269

He was still using that phone number late last year but the website for the computer repair shop is now blank.

Fulton is significantly larger (so more commercial) than Hannibal (which is more rural). So, he probably worked in Fulton and just lives in/near Hannibal where his PO Box was located.

I'm curious as to how fast authorities will respond if we aggregate our complaints and focus them at the proper authorities. Is there any one thread yet where we can do this - i.e. focus & coordinate a collective response? or Has anyone taken action to contact any authorities for themselves yet?

If he would just update people on progress of the refunds, I think he could quell a lot, if not all, of the build up to a serious legal situation.
