I ask because i haven't really been paying attention to ASICs sellers for a year an a half, i grown my farm enough to re-include ASICs and sourcing units seem difficult at the moment. Worse case scenario i will use alibaba..

But if you know any sellers in Canada or USA that sells/ships to Canada, i'd like to hear what you have to say, just don't say Bitcoinware.net. Smiley

In North America there are Minerwarez and Blokforge, which are official Canaan distributors.

AvalonMiner 821 should be available first quarter 2018.

Yeah like I said, the A821 is coming.

It has not yet had an official announcement and release details.

ASIC market is insane right now. S9s on eB going for triple retail and up. A few resellers on Amz same thing. Bitmain is selling out months before they're built,  people w/$$ buying lots, 10, 50, @1600, resell @ 4-5k ea. If you see one for 1600 be very VERY suspicious,  unless you too have enough $$ to bulk buy direct and it's the manufacturers site. I Expect the logjam to break in February/March but even if I'm right it's soooooo far away. Cheapest s9 I've seen last 30 days was 3800 USD. Good luck and be careful,  scammer count goes up with bitcoin price.

I heard you ^_^"

I have never (successfully) been scammed here, you can see scammers coming miles away, in hordes, and even if they dont look it, escrow is gold.

We'll see for prices, i also saw bid wars on S9 PREORDER for Jan batch going to 5k USD. WTF.

I seem to see a few china suppliers that would sell to me, but i'm thinking of staying away from Bitmain ASICs. I would buy it from a shop that guarantee the service for the 3 months, because i've only had bad personal experiences with them in that regard, and the forum is overflowing with Bitmain Warranty horror stories.

Personally i may be more inclined to buy ASICs for other algos but that's a discussion for another board.

I meant that mostly for everybody else and their mother, who are googling bc right now. Say "s9" and everybody looks. Today I saw Dragonmint sold out first two shipments and nobody has even seen one. They released a picture, but it looks suspiciously like an s9 with stickers on it. 4.7ts are 1600 usd. I was thinking about it, just to add Ts but I think I'll hold out. I heard about a few people bought more than they can power at their house, maybe it will be a trend and create a little correction. Who knows, if bc keeps going up I might kick myself later. Counting in my head if I had added the 4.7..... Anyways, happy hunting.
