It seems they will also support hosting. Anyone already bought with this option?

The latest information is unfortunately, that hosting is not available at the moment.

I would've been interested to buy few for hosting.

I bought some with hosting, but they're pretty consistent saying they'll release hosting details later. With the crackdown in China, who knows if they'll still go through.

I didn't realized that. Good point to keep the eye on before buy with hosting.

Pangolinminer is partnering with Kodak?

The Kodak KashMiner looks a lot like the WhatsMiner M3.  Roll Eyes

BBC news article: http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-42630136

Compare that Kodak photo with this my photo: https://imgur.com/jkPC6k9

Very interesting development.  The machines look similar.  Would be interesting to see a large manufacturer like Kodak actually enter the miner production space, not just miner hosting.

I'm 99% sure that it is actually the WhatsMiner M3.

All the details in the design match perfectly.

I'm sort of wondering why they would choose this miner design besides price point obviously, assuming it is produced by Panglominer with private label branding.  I guess the article does say that the have their own power plant @ 0.04$ per kwh.  That is cheaper than many industrial rates (0.05-0.06$) in the US.

They have a cheap electricity price rate.

And I think they've made a good deal with Pangolinminer.

The hash rate is 11.5 Th/s, because it is the WhatsMiner M3 with different labelling.

There is a 3 pin cable on the PSU, there are 2 lots of 3 pin connectors on the control board. The miner works fine without it connected, am I supposed to connect the 3 pin cable to the 3 pin cable next to the 6 pin connector? There were no instructions

@btc2017btc2017
I'm quoting my opening post here now, see this->

... <snip>
You can also follow their (Pangolinminer) tutorial video for more help.
It is quite clear and straight forward video.
Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e-Cj3QckFnI

edit:
Whoops, the video was no longer available. I found the new video and updated the video link.

I guess the article does say that the have their own power plant @ 0.04$ per kwh.  That is cheaper than many industrial rates (0.05-0.06$) in the US. 

 But a little more expensive than what most of the LARGE mines in the US are paying (3 cents/KWH or a bit less).

 Heck, I'm paying close to that where I'm at right now on a SMALL BUSINESS rate - and could drop to quite a bit less if I could find an affordable and usable place in one of the 2 "next door" counties (or grow enough to get into the "large business" rate here).


I'm no longer legendary just in my own mind!

Kodak has 85 or so miners, and is trying to go up another 300 miners.  This isn't some big production, they're dipping their toes in while getting the money up front to pay for the miner and the electricity, while keeping the miner and 1/2 the profits after two years.

Are you sure you don't have the miner exposed in the router DMZ area?

Or are you sure your firewall and virus protection safety is rock solid enough?

Smells like a security issue.

But please also contact Pangolinminer to go through troubleshooting: https://pangolinminer.com/

@Cryptosaf

I tried to help him via pm conversation, hopefully you get it running soon.
Pangolinminer should be able to help you once they are at the office again.


I updated the opening post with the current 'How to order' information.
Quote from: HagssFIN
EDIT:
Update (December 24, 2017):
Pangolinminer is now taking orders through their web shop at their website www.pangolinminer.com
They should have few different shipping time batches for sale during the Christmas time.
The counter at the web shop page indicates that this would happen in December 26, 2017.

Pangolinminer: www.pangolinminer.com

A quick update for you.  I eventually got technical assistance from the Whatsminer guys, they connected via Teamviewer.  They changed my DHCP address settings on the M3 to static address and disabled the NTP time server settings in the device config.  Now it works.  Odd, but happy nonetheless.  Next question I have, with cooling requirements (because this thing gets SO hot, i am wondering if it is even worth having.  At roughly $6 per day for electricity, and the device only makes about $15 per day (without cooling) I don't think this device is profitable.  If I factor in cooling, that takes a further chunk out of that $15 per day value.  Also, I was connected to Slushpool and after several hours the Slushpool dashboard eventually came down from 31 years to threshold for payout to 6 months.  That was with payout settings @ 0.1 BTC.  So I changed it from 0.1 to 0.01 BTC for payout.  After a few more hours it eventually changed to 2 weeks and 1 day to reach payout.

So my thinking is, if this device takes 2 weeks to payout a mere $130, with $6 a day electricity ($90) that means on a 2100w device profit is $40.  That is not worth it at all.  I've been watching YouTube videos where guys are making $50/day using an Antminer S9 with 13TH/s which is hardly that much more than the M3 so I don't understand how @ 12TH/s this M3 is not really profitable.  You would need several of these devices, but one definitely is not profitable by my calculations.  To contrast this, I have 5 GPU's (not even a full rig, I have 3 GPU not attached to that rig yet) that does over $20 per day some days with a smaller and 80+ Gold rated PSU and I've watched my electricity consumption and it's noticeably lower than the M3 and the entire rig has an average temperature of 60 degrees celcius.  Granted it is mining a different coin but the point I am trying to make is that unless you have a mining farm and you're selling hash power, Bitcoin mining is no longer profitable.  The reason these mining farms make so much cash is that with every contract they make their money back almost instantly, so their sunken cost are returned far ahead of schedule in comparison to a solo miner who needs to earn back their sunken costs.

What are your thoughts?
