I just purchased new BK-X and updated the PI Image. The miner will not connect to any USA Nicehash stratum's. Currently I have to use EU stratums to mine Nicehash. Tried numerous times to contact Baikal but they never reply to support request via email and Skype. I am sure it is a hardware issue so I just want a new board and PI unit. Any ideas for getting support would be appreciated.

Did this Nicehash issue get resolved or is this still a problem for this miner?

This is amazing news !! Another would be given a tracking number. But if we buy them, then they should treat us with respect!

Assuming you are sticking to the prices you list in this message thread:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=4330122

Since all the formerly worthwhile coins that they could mine have forked to new algos, and the rest of the coins are shite, these miners at current conditions:
  • Giant A900 earns $0.47/day -> ROI in 1,277 days -> 3.5 years
  • Giant+     earns $1.16/day -> ROI in 776 days -> 2.13 years

and it's safe to assume that they don't come with PSUs since you don't mention anything about PSUs, that means in reality they'll never ROI.

Good luck with that.

Wonder when will Baikal release new more efficient n powerful miners! Hope they can improve their customer service and after sales support. Baikal miners are good but can be better if they can response to support inquiries their customers need after buying Baikal

After the baikal n pricing and release fiasco ( n, n+, n70 n240 etc) and their algo's being taken over by other manufacturers with far more powerful miners (blakes) , and the threat of fgpa on the horizon and even currently taking over baikals algos and future ones, baikal has really lost its appeal.

Why do you say that? A competing FGPA seems kind of out of reach and pretty expensive.

What a clever newbie !! Baikal you don't need to open new accounts in order to bust your sales
Your products are for the garbage bin or the best case scenario doorstops

No profit !! No trust !! Overpriced !!

How much is your production cost and what's your margin ?

Would you guys buy another Baikal?  I'm interested, but seems like there are quite a few issues with just purchasing and getting delivery with these units from just reading the posts...

What do you guys say? (asking customers who bought one and went through the experience... especially US customers, as I'm from the US..)


Also... how is the noise and heat on a BK-X?  Say with the stated 120watt Skein load?

Yes, if shows up with new profitable algos.
Heat is not an issue and noise depends on Your fan settings, but yes it's very loud even at 50%.

Is the BK-X just merely a name rebranding of Giant X10?  Which came first and is there any physical differences between both models other than a name change?

Yes, they appear to be the same. I have it, and it doesn't say either name on it itself, but it does 10 Gh/s so I'm assuming it's what I have. I'm trying to change the firmware now, it's still on the original 5 algos. It's been making 12-16 dollars a day for X11ghost just on nicehash, a lot more on the coin people are hitting(SIB). http://

Wow that would rock if it were true but no.  Here is my daily profitability going back a few weeks:
10/20    $3.54
10/27    $3.51
11/3    $3.23
11/10    $3.13

So for each of the dates there, the dollar value is an average of the previous 7 days.  This is 100% on nicehash with Nist5, Qubit, Quark, and X11Gost enabled.  It spends 95-98% of the time on qubit.

Maybe you missed that it doesn't do 10GH/s on all algos?

awww crap, you're right. I can't figure out how to make it mine those anyway. I took the machine apart and the TF card only holds 60 Mb, so how can I flash the .img file that's 4 gig? I also see some other small .bin files but can I just copy them to the TF? There's a script.bin on it, and the boot.scr, and uImage. 5 Mb of files on it.

If the SD card you have works I wouldn't mess with it.  Get a different microSD with 8GB and put the image on that one.  Then just swap the SD card and boot with the one you imaged.  Then get comfortable with the fact that qubit is what you want to mine anyway so the new algos are pointless  Tongue

You can use the SD card imaging tool that baikal provided on their google drive for the cube: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B1GBwN5-i39VRzNQS28tWlpsTVk
