Oh, hey guys. So a couple of things going on here.

One, I've been working on a pod miner for a while. Final-version prototype PCBs are on order, but I've got some of a previous version functional. Four, to be specific. These guys are packing eight BM1384 miners and operate off the same driver as the 2Pac 2-chip stickminer. The voltage is fixed but they're tested to 250MHz (110GH) and should be able to do that handily off a 12V 5A brick (not included, I don't really have any extras).

Aside from a very few mediocre models sent out to resellers and VH who wrote the driver, these would be the first fully functional GekkoScience Terminus pod miners in the wild.

So, here's the scoop. I've got a friend, a girl I've known and respected for eleven years and a piece, currently in treatment for an eating disorder. Her dad set up a GoFundMe page at https://www.gofundme.com/lauras-eating-disorder-recovery and all the proceeds from the auction of these miners will go to that end. Anyone just feeling altruistic can donate directly, I guess.

I will cover shipping for any winning bidders within the US. Outside the US, we'll work something out.

Here's how this will work - there are four miners, so the top four bids will get one miner each. I'll let it run a full seven days, so bidding ends 7PM US Central time on Monday, July 3rd.

Bidding starts at 0.03BTC

A bit low but I may need some of my Bitcoin to help out family so I can't bid as much as I'd like- but still, BTC0.03.

I'll probably put up some discounted 2Pacs too. Fully functional but either not stable, or too many HW errors, at stock voltage for me to be comfortable sending them out proper.

Okay but you're not allowed to turn around and sell it on eBay for an extreme markup and then not support it when the buyer has issues.

I won't sell it just run it.

How about a date on when those of us that won the last auction will receive all our purchased items.  Still waiting on the bitfury pods.  Roll Eyes

I'm gonna assume that means you up your bid to 0.1BTC

Which means, correct me if I'm wrong, but here's the standings:

NotFuzzyWarm - 0.1BTC
xhomerx10 - 0.1BTC
nuanicaj - 0.1BTC
jekecoin - 0.1BTC

If that's not correct, mwin58747 takes the fourth spot with 0.06BTC
