Plot twist: Avalon is mining with our trade-ins. 

All those fpga's have to be doing something... right? Smiley

Yep, they are. They've probably been resold into the dev board market. Also they're probably mining with our 17 btc avalon units too. But I honestly doubt they have them built. The more realistic scenario is that our units will come after all of the batch 3 units have been shipped out.

There is no point in sending emails to them. Or opening tickets for that matter. We have all tried that for months with zero results.

The only options seems to be to either physically locate Yifu in New York where he lives I'm told, or to collectively hire a lawyer. Anybody close to N.Y.?

No, what would be good would be a notice that our trade-ins have been shipped or that we are going to be paid 3 BTC for lost mining revenues as Avalon tarried and, presumably, mined with our paid-for devices.

Daddy, are we there yet? :-)

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0368578/

For those (Yifu and friends) that already forgot April 15th, 2013 Avalon email update.  Here it is:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We are ramping up and the shipping of batch two has indeed begun, albeit not up to speed, we expect this situation to improve in a week or so once the equipment finish installing and the new, additional crew get use to the process. we are in also the process of merging many earlier problematic orders, if your order still does not show up in the store by Friday of the 19th please open another ticket.

Those who wish to trade in your FPGA generation Icarus or Lancelot: it is time to package and RMA those units back to us.

The address to sent

    Mr. Chen Xuyi
    Xin Zhong Fa Dian Zi Shi Chang, 2319#
    Zhong Guan Cun Da Jie 32 Beijing Hai Dian
    China
    100086

or in chinese

    陈旭宜
    新中发电子市场,2319#
    北京海淀区中关村大街32号
    +86 13801156072

State on the Box this is a Icarus/Lancelot RMA, in the box include your contact information (name, email is a must!), once received we'll get in touch with you.
 
On to chip sales which has been updated.
 
Due to overwhelming demand, we are going to gauge interest on a smaller 2 module version of the Avalon unit that's effectively half of a Avalon original in size, and greater than 45Gh/s in performance.
 
As per usual the price of the unit is determined by the following equation.
mining_difficulty * ( 1 + number_of_month_in_lead_time) over a 30 day period on the unit's hashing power. to those interested, here is the form https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1rJJniFiYn0XMPZVKVni86xBvSTylWw0fv1c1zAfuR68/viewform

p.s. here's a picture of our new case.

The most biggest problem is, that 90% of us, still dont have their Trade-ins added to the store account.


So the price for trade-in is 17 bitcoins or so...
I guess he forget to mention, "that your trade-ins will be processed in december, and we are all fucked up, as always."

And why the hell did i even bother, sending my two fpgas via dhl, payed a lot of money, for the hurry...  one of two fpgas were refused by chan, because he didnt want to pay the fees... 10$ or so..

In the end, one of my fpgas were lost, and the other one was eventually delivered... and i thought thats good news...



p.s. I admired Yifu and his team, and always had faith in him, but i guess GREED kills even the best of us.

I'll check back in April 2014.

If Avalon still hasn't acknowledged receiving FPGAs by then, perhaps we'll be somewhat able to maybe begin preliminary motions towards initial steps regarding possible considerations of tentative movement towards a chance of getting them a scammer tag.

Yifu said trade-ins would be pre batch #2 and at $1500 minus cost of trade-in.
The real result is $1600+ trade-in and  post batch #3 or never.

I opened ticket on June 12th, ticket #961.  I have sent my boards on Apr 16th, they got them on Apr 23rd.

If they keep delaying these trade-ins, it might not be profitable to buy Avalons at $1600 or $160.
Maybe that is what they want; mine until cows come home and then offer great "trade-in" deals of a lifetime  Smiley

Why don't they just say they cannot do trade-ins, return the boards, and pay for duty/shipment to/from them.

I just noticed the "I am alive" post by Yifu here in the custom hardware subsection, and in it he mentions that we should expect some news soon. I hope he addresses us trade-in customers as well.
