I really hoped they would have taken Phil's help on this.

For now this is a scam suspect in my records.

You
Hi Philip,

I noticed that you had added a unit to your cart.

As I said, it's impossible for us to ship you a unit free of charge. As I said in my last email, we will refund the full amount including shipping if you do not wish to keep the unit after you have finished your review. Blah blah blah..


Translation:

It's impossible for us to ship you something that doesn't and will never exist.

Looks like their "showroom" is in a virtual office, I doubt that will work.

Come on guys, even people who should know better are giving this more credence than it deserves, you are all so desperate for an alternative to the current suppliers.

This is a SCAM, if it wasn't a SCAM then they would have pictures of working miners, come on, they have three months till launch, you think they wouldn't have working hardware or even pics of chips and boards and prototype miners by now? Sidehack called it.

This is 100% scam of the worst type. And I feel 100% justified in saying it because if I am wrong then nothing there is no downside for anyone. But if I am right the fallout is catastrophic for anyone who gets suckered into it, and there are a lot of people who are going to get suckered into this, and every person who sends them money and gets suckered is going to be subsidising the continuance of the scam for months and months and years to come.

As someone who lost over a hundred bitcoins with Hashfash by falling prey to the preorder game - I strongly advise nobody fall for this potential.

Hashfast had a visible office and much more communicative team and still ended up being a major dissapointment and loss.  Syan seems even worse.

I have no plan to pre-order, I just wait and see.

Well, likely scam. Anyone email them to at least make a simple youtube video of the machine working? That takes a couple of minutes or so only. Hmmm also 6200 rpm fan should be pretty noisy for home i think.

Selling 100 dollar coupons (8units expire 11th June, 14 units expire 1st july) and 125 dollar coupon (2 unit exp 30th June). Selling at 20% of value

U managed to buy any of that bitfury?

 Personally, no - but Sidehack has mentioned having some chips, Hotmine has been selling Bitfury miners for a while, just for 2 rather well known examples.

 Raw chips would do "me" no good, I'm not a board designer or coder.

I got more info  that does not help their case.
this is from a member here and an email reply to him or her:

   Hi [name redacted],

Thank you for your interest in the Vega Home Bitcoin Digital Currency Miner.

The units use our own proprietry 14nm STA1220 chips of which there are 190 in each unit. The unit consumes 1050w power from the wall and is 80 plus rated gold which gives it 87% efficiency.

Unfortunately, we are unable to honour large orders for batch 1 since we have already taken a large corporate order and we wish for the remaining units to reach as many different individuals as possible. As a result, management have imposed a restriction on the number of units available per person. This limit is set to 5. I'm sure in future batches, we would be able to talk about a larger order.

  Our only working unit is in the lab and unavailable for inspection since they are using it. We will have units for inspection as soon as batch 1 is delivered to us for quality control and distribution.

The power lead is a USA to 3-pin to moulded IEC C13, 1 meter in length.

Please let me know if there is anything else I can help you with.

Best regards,

Clive.



The bolded line  tells me  a lot.  So basically until they show working units just don't order.

1 working unit that can't be inspected, or can't have a video taken of it running, or any other way to verify it does what it says, or that it even exists, all based on a supposed new chip which has no information on.

There's so many red flags - they could even just say what foundry they're making the chips on, show blanked out documents of the order, pictures of the chip even - nope.

Pretty sure they have 0 working miners, nor do they even have a 'lab' for testing. I pointed out it was a scam weeks ago.

Stop buying industrial miners, running them at home, and then complaining about the noise.

***  Syan miner is a SCAM! If someone buys their miners without a well-known and trusted Forum User 1st getting one for doing a review and posting it here then well, you have been warned ***
Hell, even AMT did a better job of of showing 'progress' in having a viable miner.... As in pics of chips, various iterations of the hash boards, etc... Of course their whole scheme fell apart when it was obvious AMT's parent Bitmine.ch totally blew the design of their A1-based miner but at least they tried and showed something to the world (as did BFL and few other companies in 2013-2014).

For bitcoin to succeed the community must police itself - Joshua Zipkin aka Joshua Alexander leaked AMT A1 miner skype chats

Probably 99.99% a scam at this point. Their supposed "HQ" in HK doesn't exist.

So I take it your visit to the showroom has been modestly entertaining in that regard at least? Cheesy

Maybe they cant show documents but pretty much all phones have good video function these days...

Seems so. I wonder if anyone actually paid for these...

Website was created in July of 2017, so a very new company. I would probably wait to see for a long while. They don't mention their hashrate or anything, be cautious when you spend any money on here.
