Hello everyone,

I have a task, but I need some advice from people who are introduced to the topic. Now, the company where I work wishes to start a mining project, on a bit of a larger scale. They wish to get somewhere between 300 and 400 Antminers S9 (more accurate, they would like to have 5000TH). The thing is, it isn't that easy to get such an amount these days, especially for some reasonable price. I contacted Bitmain, and was told that I am on a wait list, so for now, I'm hoping they will reach out to me soon.

Until that happens, my question to this wonderful society is, first of all, what do you think about such a project? Is there any hope of getting such amount of units (with it's price not going way over 2000$ per piece - power supply included)?
pick it up ourselves. We need new equipment and we need it as fast as possible...

Thank you so much, hopefully somebody will help me out.

P.S. It is my first post, although it's not spam, I really have this situation, and I'm just trying to do my job, but I need some extra knowledge in the field.

Not possible, sorry.

Your best option is to come up with a deal with Bitmain directly.

I would love to, but it seems to be difficult to get a hold of them... Any idea how I could do that?

You just have to keep trying. They are hard to get ahold of but at the money you are talking about spending, buying them from a third party with no warranty  would be a huge mistake.

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

Don't go with the reseller site they will cheat in these kind of bug investment you have check the trader is in your city or not. If he is from your location you will be able to go ahead with that person who want to deal for these number of antminer.
You can find the best deal and too you can get the miner at cheap price in bitmain site. You might find SE dealy in delivery and you have to make the payment before you receive it in their site itself.

Personally I say screw Bitmain and go with Avalon's from Canaan.io. They *will* respond to your inquiries. FYI Canaan's Global Director of Marketing hangs out in their official A7 thread.

Fly to China and bring proof you can pay for them, at that order size they will take your meeting.

Not a problem, but I'm not flying there before they tell me they will take me in for a talk. It's not really like I'm walking into a grocery store.

You're worried about a $3K plane ticket on a 500K investment?  That seems odd

It's not about losing 3k, and it's not my money we're talking about here, it's about time waste.

Go to the canaan.io website and go to the bulk orders page, fill out the profile for quantity desired and time frames. They will be more than happy to give you a place in line for orders of more than 60 units.

I see that you are wish to buy the antminer s9 in large numbers. I got the messeage from the newbie about to have deal for miners. I am not sure that he is legit person or not. If you are able to check about him in the forum means check that go ahead to purchase the miners. This below UID link will direct you to his profile page. Please check with him and go for deal.

Else try to get the quotation from the cannon site to get the high amount miner order.

As fast as possible doesnt really work in this industry. You need to work around the manufacturer release schedules. Sometimes you just have to wait 2 months to get hardware, there is nothing you can do about it that wont cost you money, time, and pain when you realize you bought a bunch of overpriced hardware with zero warranty.

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

Hello,

Thanks for linking our profile! It is a good way to spread our name so I appreciate it. We understand that there is a lot of worry with regards to find a legitimate source for hardware and we hope that we can resolve this issue. You can find our official thread over here for our hardware sales and hosting services.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2541999.0

We currently are getting our facility ready, but are still selling hardware at the same time. Our post is mainly with regards to our hosting service, with the hardware sales being a side venture. If you are interested, we may be able to work out small deals initially until you get comfortable with us being a supplier.

Contact us if you are interested or would like a quote! If you are just interested in having a talk regarding assets or how to get started we offer those services as well.

Thanks,

THCG (The Hedge Coin Group)
