Seeing as there hasn't been any troll comments on this thread for almost an hour, I'll ask a question.

Anyone buying one of these thought about security? Like, what to do if their miner is stolen by some bum who breaks in and thinks it's a fancy desktop PC?

Any thoughts? Getting some kind of serial number engraved on the case? Marking the PCB somehow? Some kind of tracking that is it powers up, gps coordinates get send somewhere? I imagine high end industiral machinery must have something like this to protect the investment, but I don't really know.

If someone were to steal your rig and didnt realise what it was I'm afraid to say it would get thrown to the side of the road.

Considering they all are going to be worth a ton less in no time at all why bother. Ooh look I mined 0.01BTC in 5 days.

Tired of substandard power distribution in your ASIC setup???   Chris' Custom Cablez will get you sorted out right!  No job too hard so PM me for a quote

But should you set the device it is tagged to up for communicating through other tile users, if it goes beyond range it pings other closer tile users if they exist so they can bounce and alert you back.

Watch the video, if you live in a cosmopolitan area with other tile users it could be useful.

Should get one for Yifu. Grin

Perhaps. But I imagine they'll steal it, bring to whoever they sell stolen goods to and say "How much will you give me for that?", regardless of whether they know what it is or not.

So would be good to have some tech where if some clown were to plug it in, you could get a fix on the location. And then send in the feds Grin

Thanks FUKT.

(And to the other guy that trolled my question - is it impossible to simply offer an answer if you have one or else stfu?)

GPS module, but I guess it is too late for design changes Smiley
Maybe Gen 2 can have it Smiley

This sounds interesting. Is it something you could attach yourself, to the case or something?

Yes, you can just place it/attach it inside. Doesn't even have to be connected to anything - it's autonomous.

Are there any that work off a regular computer PSU? Like some kind of a PCB you could attach, that might look like it's part of the rest of the machine (rather than a box that says "GPS Tracker"  Grin )

It is called good locks, alarm system, and insurance.  Make sure you get a separate rider.  Most homeowner/renter insurance policies by default have limits on high value items and computers tend to have some ridiculous low limit.  Given the economic lifespan of these devices is likely not more than a year (maybe two is you want to be naively optimistic) insurance is likely going to be a better deal.

I'm not talking about a few graphics cards here. An $8000 bitcoin miner. Surely it makes sense to protect your investment from theft? And if it is stolen, to give yourself the best chance of recovering it?

Exhausting as it's been KnC have silently been creating their own network of satellites orbiting the globe to provide precise, and accurate real time feedback of the miner positioned right next to you;



Perhaps alternatively you could just get a chain and anchor the thing? I do like the tile thing though.

Anyway, CYPER has put me on the right track and I'll look into that more. Thanks bud.
