It seems Avalon has no longer able to put chips on machines, so they focus on selling chips in bulks instead.

No email here, either. My guess is they are still working on it.

Yifu said it was batch 2 pricing so, $1299 for Icarus, $1199 for Lancelots trade-ins.

What order status you talking about? As far as I know there is no orders for the trade-in program until after they send you a purchase link and you complete that purchase. I guess I should checkout my store account maybe there is a surprise waiting for me.

Yeh, this should make up for the 75 BTC price we paid with batch 3.

What I wonder though is if they will have a trade-in program when they move to 55nm chips. My guess is no, but who knows.

mmm, that's odd guys, I'm pretty sure rudrigorc and allinvain should have gotten emails, I remember sending about 50% of them before having to run off to another meeting earlier today.

care to check store / emails?

also yes, trade-ins are batch #2 prices, so $1600 at current exchange rate. I think the number used was 17.2-17.4ish

Hmm, I just logged into my store account and saw an order for the trade-in! Wohoo. I don't know why there is an error in the pricing, but if you click on view order it should show the proper pricing.

The price is 17.4 BTC per unit, which equates to $1600 as of right now  (price is at $92)

I had one completed order paid in the first day, then, 10 minutes ago they duplicated that order with a new order number, as it is showing more machines than I was expecting I opened a ticket informing them this time I am waiting to pay one more unit, only.

edit:

Last email from avalon was the newsletter, 7 hours ago.

I see the order in my store account and I just got the e-mail a while ago at 11:15 pm EST. I am in the process of paying it.

So all is well! Thank you for everything BitSyncom Smiley

While I got your attention I'm wondering if you can let us know if your team will institute a similar trade-in program when you'll move to 55nm tech. I don't think we can expect a similar scenario as with trading FGPAs but will we get perhaps a small discount when purchasing 55nm modules (assuming of course the new modules will be backwards compatible and we can just swap them).

Will we be sending in the "old" modules you think? Or just our store account history would be sufficient.

I dunno, but if I had to guess I'd say that we won't be sending in anything. The existing Avalon modules have no other purpose other than BTC mining so unlike FPGAs there is no resale market available for them outside the bitcoin community. Probably what will happen is they will look at our store account history.

I have a feeling that by the time they roll out the 55nm tech the existing 110nm modules will no longer be profitable anyways, so those who wish to stay in the game would have to reinvest and get the new modules. This game should go on for a while until we finally reach the pinnacle of chip design which will likely be 22nm or below.

allinvain, when did you send/deliver your cards?

I checked my account, I don't see any orders.  (ticket #961)


Hmm, odd. Try logging out and logging back in (clear your cookies/cache as well). If that does not help then I'm not sure you can do much besides wait for a response from the Avalon support team (ticket).

My fpga trade-in package was signed for on April 22.

Did you guys make sure to include your contact info (e-mail address associated with your store account) when you sent in the fpgas?
