ZTEX discontinued the product, 0 hits @eBay Sad
I hope that there are still some device around in the mining community...

hi, hope to buy one too for experimenting purposes. There are hardware which declass this tiny board on the market already.

If anyone would like to sell it??

I have a few ztex clones that are working or partially working, and maybe 20-30 that never came up.  Mostly bad dc-dc or other minor (miner!) problems.  I reworked a few but never found the time to debug the bulk of them.  I can check a few out depending on the interest level.

Digging in the ZTEX bin, we first find the complete, but perhaps questionable devices




Then we find the boards which never even became full miners.

Hello all,
I am interested too in buying some of these boards...  Grin
cableiso, could you quote working/not working boards, or contact me in pvt?

Thank you,
Alessandro.

Hi cableiso,

Thanks for your reply. Please let me know how many are up & running and how many you'd like to sell for how much.

Thanks,

Feel free to post or PM offers.  I also have one or two of the single fpga versions (1.15x, maybe?) - good for development

Did you ever decide on a price? Still interested in getting a couple of these.

I would be interested in several boards in either single FPGA or dual FPGA configuration if they are working and a reasonable price.  Did you decide what you wanted per board?

Thanks

I don't think that any of the PinIdea equipment used FPGA but I could be wrong.  As far as I know, all of their equipment was ASIC based and if you still have a DU-1 then I would be interested in PM you about that.

@cryptodjee the OP was looking for FPGA miners and @cableiso mentioned that he had a box of failed miners that never worked for some reason and several of us were interested in seeing if he would sell some of those boards.  I don't know if he has gotten a chance to look at them anymore.

Are you guys figuring out ways to profitably mine crypto with these FPGAs?

There are some coins like Blakecoin using blake256r8 that can still be mined by FPGA pretty well.  Yes, baikal has a Giant-B that will mine blake256r8 but those are pretty pricey and they will do other more profitable coins as well.  As some of the memory-hard algo keep forking, FPGA can sometimes still be viable with some work.

Yes, I am on the lookout for FPGA miners working or not. Smiley
