As we all know bitmain released another batch of D3 (some estimates around 32k D3) today morning.

https://shop.bitmain.com/productDetail.htm?pid=000201707201601357978QhCAWa5065C

few minutes after it was sold out... people on twitter/forums etc started selling there unpaid D3 for exuberant prices.

I want to take a personal stand against these profiteers who only block purchase (from legitimate miners) orders to resell (nothing wrong with reselling i have sold a lot of my equipment in the past at market prices) my problem is that the buyers have no intention of purchasing D3 and they don't have funds to do so or run some of the D3s they are not crypto supporters they are just price gauger....

I hope you take a stand with me and not purchase there empty unpaid orders... let me know your thoughts.

(some will say i am bitter/upset on missing out the D3 sale and they are correct i am sad  but not bitter i would rather wait and support the network at a fair price than line the pocket of some schmuck who who got lucky and ordered few D3s never intending to pay or mine with them )

Yeah just my .02 but I think the practice of "Re-selling" unpaid bitmain accounts should be not allowed on Bitcointalk. It seems to be getting out of hand and tons of people are securing orders that may never get paid for, for the simple purpose of "re-selling"

If you go over to the Marketplace Computer Hardware section, the re-selling of bitmain accounts is running rampant.

I was thinking about starting a thread on this exact same topic, glad I'm not the only one seeing this crap.

I agree Bitmain should implement some sort of safeguard against this practice. It will cost Bitmain more money anyway as a lot of orders will go unpaid .

Are you sure they really care? After all, with all the pre-orders being sold-out in no-time, it does create this complete "I need to have it, but now" attitude with buyers. Which is the kind of thing that eliminates rational thinking and makes it an even more emotional purchase (going to get one this time!). Only if they are stuck with the majority of batches that remain unpaid will they change. Because they are not I'm guessing the strategy works to their advantage...

Finally someone else.  Felt like i was bitching to myself for awhile.  My problem is not with even selling their preorders IF they already bought it.  Its the kids who jam all the orders with no intention ever to buy them nor could they.  Easy for me to stick 50 units in my cart....whole other thing buying them.  If this doesnt stop now you can kiss buying any bitmain units ever again for retail.  These kids will be f5'ing the bitmain site until a new product is out.

I agree.

     Also - it's just lazy.  Really. 

     In the past a middleman actually had to buy it, receive it and then resell it.

     In India sometimes the first guy in line will buy all the tickets to a popular movie and then turn around and sell them at a premium.  This seems like one of those things.

Yep that is true. Hopefully a lot of the units will go for unpaid... as long as people don't buy them on repurchase and a lot of people are scammers to trying to screw people out of BTC to resell them login info.

I think they should stop wire transfers. It's not fair to have some guy hold a place in line for that long. Plus we're here to support cryptos so cash seems like a relic. I did get in line for the Oct batch so we'll see if a 4th batch comes out for cancellations.

The simplest solution is to not allow addresses or phone numbers to be changed on an order. As a miner and a reseller who actually purchases these and ships them from within the United States with an additional 30-day warranty, these vultures are just begging for some heavy handed action from Bitmain that will hurt more than just the people creating the problems.

This a very easy fix:

Bitmain should not allow order changes unless order 100% paid for.

The only resellers would be those with paid off orders, in full.

Right now you have kids with $0 in the system, selling machines worth $5k-7k a piece at no risk. If the 2 days pass, they dont care, no personal risk.

Yup, that's why I think Bitcointalk should take a stand against the practice because it also increases the chances of scams since these "resellers" have no risk, look at all the new accounts recently created that are selling bitmain accounts with preorders.

I sold a preorder as well, but a month after i had paid it off and had another investment pop up that required cash on hand. Failing that, I would've received the order and just mined it.

Im okay with legit resellers who have skin in the game. They take on a risk and if it doesnt pan out, they lose while trying to play the market. If it does work, they get rewarded.

This $0 down but selling $50000 worth of ASICs type of sales threads are getting out of hand.

Perfect solution.  Works well for all parties: bitmain and actual buyers

As we all know bitmain released another batch of D3 (some estimates around 32k D3) today morning.

https://shop.bitmain.com/productDetail.htm?pid=000201707201601357978QhCAWa5065C

few minutes after it was sold out... people on twitter/forums etc started selling there unpaid D3 for exuberant prices.

I want to take a personal stand against these profiteers who only block purchase (from legitimate miners) orders to resell (nothing wrong with reselling i have sold a lot of my equipment in the past at market prices) my problem is that the buyers have no intention of purchasing D3 and they don't have funds to do so or run some of the D3s they are not crypto supporters they are just price gauger....

I hope you take a stand with me and not purchase there empty unpaid orders... let me know your thoughts.

(some will say i am bitter/upset on missing out the D3 sale and they are correct i am sad  but not bitter i would rather wait and support the network at a fair price than line the pocket of some schmuck who who got lucky and ordered few D3s never intending to pay or mine with them )




32k ? as in 32,000 units sold ? that sounds way 2 high for selling out in 10 minutes... ?

1. they reserved-sold units..meaning in 2 days around half or 1/3rd of their orders will expire and be re-sold (something Bitmain might wanna fix)

2. They sell batches by the hundreds of units, never thousands...if a batch gets to be thousands,it means the price vs ROI is bad and people stayed away and didnt buy

A very simple fix to this Smiley

1.) Don't support people doing this
2.) Don't allow a company to do this by rejecting their offer

If we would all just remain without greed for a month or two, a lot of things would change, but nobody wants to except for a few so here we are Smiley Just remember that you alone can make a stand and that all that matters. As long as you do what you feel is right, you will end up in a good place. Don't listen to greedy crypto nerds and do your thing, that's all that really matters.
