Enough people purchased it that they don't need the PR in the form of expedited units for anyone at this point.

When the product arrives as advertised, that's all the PR they'll need to solidify their stance as a reliable company.


Im gonna have to disagree with that. Even if the product arrives as advertised they have still proven they dont know how to function as a retail company. I wouldn't give a 5 million dollar order to a company that acts this shady and uncommunicative. I mean their main distributor says he doesn't even knows hes a distributor? There are still too many red flags with how the company has been run these past few months.

If these batches arrive as advertised and there's no QC issues, I wouldn't have an issue placing a 5M+ order with Halong for a future batch, assuming the pricing works out which is another topic. This is further assured by actually seeing the unit in person in early January and having Scott in such close proximity. I agree the company should be more consistent and direct with communicating with people. Maybe they've got too many chiefs and not enough Indians.

As for DM1/DM2 tags, I would guess DM1 was their first internal production batch, which was successful for demos and further testing. DM2+ are the general consumer batches.

Very cool. Thanks for being so open, Phil.

Well I hope to get a reply soon.

Got a reply  I am on track for 5 units in  late March.

He also said he may send one out earlier then that.

Fingers crossed.

Does it help if I say these are real? I can't speak for their production targets times costs etc. but they do hash uniquely different and I've helped work with them remotely.

Most importantly. What was the hash rate that you observed when you were "working with them remotely"?

Yes, it does help as you are the 1st from here with rep and technical chops to say that.

As I've been leaning towards, the biggest question now is more along the line of will they ship on time or put their pre-order Investomers through a BFL/Bitmine.ch/AMT 'just a few more tweaks...' hell of endless delays.

We did twist a bit off track.  But I have my reply from Yoshi

and here is a followup

with 'photos'

I personally think this was an advertising method and if you look at the thread  it has lots of info and post and interest.

I will get a single unit early to mid march  then the 4 others late march to early april

As to whether it is good gear. ?
as to on time shipping. ?
as to bitmain selling an 18th-20th at 1200 watts ?
but I am looking forward to this in about 25 days

...

I think your biggest risk is just its reliability. I assume they are sending u a fast unit for a review. Maybe their PR is not so bad after all lol.

They have yet to refund my BTC from a cancelled order.   This is exactly what happened to me at HashFast.  First promises, then no response.   Ahhhhh:-(  Well, this time it was only 0.298 BTC and not 33 BTC.   https://blockchair.com/bitcoin/address/1G3bzKHfwaaKQMjewN7Q7Prp3jRwq7XSB4

What in the what? No, just no.

In no sense of the matter does it make any sense to be unreachable, and provide zero information, zero product for review, zero viable photos/video for the public. It is just careless and foolish to be so shit at marketing, no matter the product.

The Chinese aren't "innovative" in any fashion, they just steal from everyone else since intellectual property doesn't exist there.

It is not marketing. 2 months ago, everyone was buying asics as numbers were good and now, no one is buying. U can get asics for less than the retail value on ebay. If it is about marketing and PR, these people did a horrible job. But their timing was good.

I believe there was a promise of a review/video from a canadian 6 to 8 months ago?
What ever happened to this? Did I miss it somewhere?

No you did not miss anything.

There has not been any solid proof of a marketable product presented. This has been spun many different ways. Some say great marketing tactic, some say scam/vaporware.

Honestly whatever it is this product deserves no further attention until it actually materializes for the many people who pre ordered, or it goes up on the list of vapor ware.

The first thing that will prove some units exist and hash will likely come from Phil, when he gets the units he has posted about from Yoshi.

I'm now currently working on cleaning up the drivers for these devices. The code is the usual disaster area I've come to expect from in-house drivers but hopefully by the time you see the code it won't be so bad. Again, I'm only working remotely on them but they're quite different to anything I've worked with before.

Any idea why they are only releasing such unclear videos, pictures and details about the hardware?

Or do you mean something else by the they're quite different to anything you've worked with before?

No idea on the hardware side what's going on as I've said previously. What I mean is they're uniquely different in terms of what software support they need to work which makes it clear they're different to any other hardware. So from my perspective, it's pretty clear this is different hardware and not just faked, even if I'm only getting to work on them remotely for now.

So much for the accusations this is just stolen and refurbished Innosilicon technology, FUD from the Bitmain camp. I'm cheering for these buggers and hope they don't fuck up the production like so many before them did. We may finally have miner which will be real competition to Bitmain.

This is exactly how I feel about this.

It is real and lets hope they do better servicing of the gear. Then other asic gear.

In theory yoshi will send me an early one say march 1 to march 15

then send my other 4 MarcH 25 - APR 5

This is probably the most solid information I've seen from this project.

I hope for everyone that you receive the product you paid for, on time, and you are able to ROI quickly Smiley

The great DragonMint mystery. I uploaded a YouTube video yesterday highlighting what I seen so far from Halong Mining and that I was still not 100% convinced. To my surprise, Halong Mining retweeted my video, Adam Back like it and My Rig suggested I flew to Iceland, Spain or Hong Kong for a live demo. I'm glad my video got attention, but I still don't know if this is real  Cheesy

I sure hope they can deliver.
