I bought one B3 unit and noticed an exception from UPS. Apparently I owe $46.53 in duties. I'm in California.

I told UPS that I've bought similarly priced units from Bitmain before and never had to pay duties. The UPS service person told me that Bitmain must have paid the duties previously, but did not this time.

I know that Phil got hit up for duties too, but the thinking was that he had two units shipped at the same time (even if they were different orders). Maybe Bitmain is pushing the duty cost onto us now and didn't before?

Seems inconsistent to me. And very irritating...

Ask UPS what that amount consists of and what's the HTS code on the invoice. Either Bitmain messed something up or UPS is trying to monetize you. The amount sounds excessive. Bitmain never paid anything AFAIK, that's just somebody giving you a generic runaround.

I believe it is somewhat arbitrary.  The one time UPS wanted a fee from me was not the most expensive order I ever made.  As part of the rigamarole I went through to get an explanation (and eventually a refund) I provided old tracking numbers with shipments from bitmain for a greater dollar amount that had no fee attached.  I could practically hear the head-scratching over the phone.  Honestly I think they just wing it and sometimes they randomly decide to add a fee.  My S9 was more than $2000 USD and it had no fee.

EDIT: Wish I had bought another B3 while it was under 3 BTC now.  With BTC this far down I don't see myself buying any hardware for quite some time.

Damnit. Just checked with UPS and my B3 arriving on Thursday is tagged as
"United States 06/22/2016 7:12 A.M. The receiver must pay the duties or taxes due on the package."

Time to get on the horn with them...

Pre-halving Pump & Dumpers at work?
Glad I sold a chunk of of BTC last week or so ago @ $695/BTC for me Birthday/vacation coming up in a couple weeks.

Also makes me feel a bit better about missing it of course rising to $785 a few days after I cashed in... Cheesy

If you can live your life entirely within the "Bitcoin Bubble", this is of no importance. For the other 99.9% folks that have to deal with actual fiat money, then I have but one word that you should never forget related to Bitcoin:

Right, but what's the cause? I'm really looking forward to getting back to rational stability instead of sitting around waiting to get hosed by speculators. Stability is good for a currency if it wants to actually be used as a currency instead of another random nonexistent traded asset for investors to jerk each other off with.

Think I also recall something about the Fed's this week selling off the last BTC they seized from SiklRoad. That would have been a sizeable amount methinks.

A little bit of this, a little bit of that, and a lot of manipulative whales.  A very bitter recipe IMO.

the plus side to it is causing  a nice drop in the  hash rate

Finally got my Batch 3 today, almost lost it on UPS when it still hadn't shown up this afternoon, at last it arrived just as I'm sitting down to dinner  Angry

Runs beautifully, great numbers, got a massively irritating whining fan on it tho, fixed with a touch of duct tape and some furnace filter material Cheesy.

All things told it's really disheartening to see the price plummeting, I'm just ecstatic I bought this S9 with BTC when I did, if we have some low/negative difficulty numbers as a result of the price drop I'll just take the bad with the good.

Here's hoping it's an inverse head and shoulders scenario as some people have postulated.

Always hashing for the community. Oh, and dollars.

It's starting to look like a "head, shoulders, and the rest of the body jumping off a cliff" scenario  Grin

S9 didn't hit my target of 2.5 BTC (well, it did except Bitmain didn't have it in stock) so I guess I'm gonna be out of mining for a little longer. More coins in my pocket - nothing wrong with that. If you grabbed it around 3 BTC you should be in fairly good shape.

imho, after halving, a solo block would be worth over 20k USD, just my humble prediction.

I have went through a lot of the popular pool's on 24 hour runs.   I decided to go back and do a 3 day run on Antpool (this time making sure to get more screenshot's of entire dashboard page).  During the run the miner itself did very well getting a GH/S AVG of 13,991T reported on the machine itself  The pictures below show the results from mining on Antpool for 3 day's:

Unit at 2 days: http://s100.photobucket.com/user/notlist3d/media/S9/2d11_zpsqorvtcz1.png.html
Unit at 1 day: http://i100.photobucket.com/albums/m25/notlist3d/S9/1d_zpsh5n9haqm.png

Below is full sized pictures of dashboard for info from pool side:
Day 1: http://i100.photobucket.com/albums/m25/notlist3d/S9/1d_zpszr4lpq3i.jpg
Day 2: http://i100.photobucket.com/albums/m25/notlist3d/S9/2d_zps4pw04qmi.jpg
Day 3: http://i100.photobucket.com/albums/m25/notlist3d/S9/3d_zpsqvzkdmdu.jpg

Below is brief version of dashboard(just shows hashrate from poolside on day 3)

Hi I have received two units of S9 and both have one board hashing around 2.7

They are batch 2, is it a normal? Any tips?

Thanks!
