Yep, rebooted twice... same thing.  Opened a support ticket.  First time dealing with support.  Hopefully it doesn’t take too long.  I can’t bear to lose out on my $3 day.  Haha.  Wink

Yes, they do that occasionally. They had a GPU miner (G1 I think) that was only ever available in China.

We'll have to wait and see. I'd like to get a couple of those S9 Hydro. If they're as quiet as the C1 was it would be perfect for heating during the winter.

I cannot read Chinese and most of the specs are in picture format so Google translate is of limited use, but I do see 45DBA mentioned. Now weather that is the miner fan, radiator fan, pumps, etc who knows. However is the entire setup only puts out 45DBA this would resurrect home mining where people have affordable electricity.

Bitmain requiring KYC now? What's up with that? Why all of a sudden they required potential buyers to go through this whole KYC process?

It appears that my driver's license is not sufficient for them. I don't have a passport. Since I am not planning on leaving the country, I'm not going to bother. I hate Bitmain, anyway.

how much is 7450 cn in usd?

it is 1107 usd

 while a stock one with a psu is 499 usd

I mine alt coins with https://simplemining.net...
I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.

A very, very expensive price for the water cooling luxury.

it depends on what you call pricey...
Watercooling opens up a lot of options (at least for me it does.)
It is very very cheap to watercool, saves a lot of space, less investment in sound dampening, and less variation in heat.
It would be very easy to connect to a well source thats always about 10 degrees celcius, thru a heat exchanger, and actually recuperate some of thet normally wasted heat. Especially when you are able to heat your home (or driveway, for that matter). Anyway: the heat is not wasted, and thats money as well..


I think its a great idea, that they should have invented a long time ago.

Well if it is double price vs. the air cooled version, I think it is justified to say that it is very expensive.

I also assume one have to also add the price of the water circulator. Also the scalability.

Why do bitmain only offer the hydro version and the antbox on the cn website?

I Like the idea of the watter cooling it would help for those who have issues with heat and mining in smaller locations thought the price could be a little better considering the price of the S9 right now.

I like the antbox as a one-stop solution though I do think you may be cheaper buying a larger container and building one out to suit but as a commercial buy in option I can see them selling a few.

I made a second attempt and this time it was verified. I guess they wanted me to type in both my first and middle name, as it appears on my license. I guess a bonus is that I have 3 middle names, so my license couldn't cram all the characters in and is actually not the name on my birth certificate.

if compared with prices 2 months ago, prices are equal. This is a new developed unit and has to recoup some designing cost.

One thing is for sure: next generation miners will definately also be offered with liquid cooling from bitmain....

I don't get why you are defending their pricing. So what if there are some r&d costs. It still doesn't make any sense to have double price.

And we can't say for sure that there will be a water cooled version for the 'S11'. There was a long pause after the Antminer C1 before we saw this second water cooled miner model from Bitmain.

i know it doesn't answer your question, but you can buy CN-only Bitmain products on alibaba, if you're particularly keen.
