It's either Bitmain and this risk you described or you pay inflated prices for the miner. There's risk involved, absolutely, but most people like me just take it. There are many new people in the mining scene but it really doesn't take much to know how to care for miners and how to use them.

Tell the truth, not really sure even if an L3+ makes any sense for the next go around...with bitmain saying they are gonna build data halls in the USA

I must have missed that, do you mind linking to a source about their datacenter plans in the US?
They just raised 50 million USD to begin mining operations in the US.

That's disgusting.

M
I do not think the Chinese Government is a fan or friend of Bitmain. If the Chinese Govt decides they want ALL of Bitmain's profits, they will just TAKE THEM, or close Bitmain down. We all saw what they just did with ICO's. They do things much differently than the "free world".

Just by your comment I can see you are not the type I was referring to. I take the risk as well, just not this "damn the torpedoes" all in mentality without even knowing  the first thing about the technology. Usually when you see the barriers being this low, it's a harbinger for trouble. We literally have several people in here that don't know what PSU they need, How to set it up on a pool ( which is as easy as eating a sucker ), which power cord they need, don't know what an Algorithm is etc, etc. But, they are talking about just getting 40 units delivered!! They are asking these questions AFTER the servers are DELIVERED to their location!!

WHISKEY.....TANGO.....FOXTROT!?!?!?

Bitmain pays taxes and will move to HongKong or whatever if the chinese govt. makes trouble. Why would the chinese do such a thing ?
How do you come to the idea they just seize the whole money ? Do you think they want to nuke investor-confidence in the chinese market ?
The way you picture the chinese govt is like some mad wild-west-cowboys who live in somalia.
Did you not notice that it is not allowed to take part in ICOs if your are in the US if you are not an accredited investor ?

So in your mind a "complete ban" and a "regulatory control" are synonymous? Moreover, a "regulatory control" that was already in place for other "securities? Are you unaware of the levels of corruption in ALL major government? Why would the Chinese do it? Because they can. "nuke investor confidence"Huh? What, in a little know sector of the financial world?? Are you under the impression that Crypto currency mining is even a blip on the large radar screen?? This is exactly what I am talking about. Do you know which PSU you would need minimally to run the D3 on 110v?

Oh and BTW, The ICO regulation implemented in the US was done through legal means established by elected lawmakers and legal precedent. Not an overnight "EDICT" handed down by some nameless group of totalitarian megalomaniacs. Not sure if you know this, but China is communist. Not historically known for tolerance and legislative procedures. Somali Cowboys?? LOL! No, far more powerful and sophisticated.

I had to get to that captcha part 9 times total to buy 3 times.. Insane, Trick is, if captcha takes longer than 30 seconds, go back to shopping cart and start the order again.

I used google Chrome with ´decent´internet connection, 25 Mb/s (venezuela) so I assume faster connections in other countries might have an slight better chance.

Last night's batch was the first time that I could not get a purchase to go through due to the crazy traffic. Now I'm looking into ways to automate purchases programatically. I'm guessing the big players are already doing this.

I wouldn't touch that with a hazmat  suit on and a 20 foot pole. I don't know for sure but MOST of those places are complete scams. Not worth the risk.
