But this being a chapter 11, if you don't disagree with how the debtor filed your claim, there is no need to file a proof of claim. Again, if I'm wrong, please correct me.

My anger against what is wrong in the Bitcoin community is productive:

After following this thread all this time I would guess you are sure to get something, hard to guess the percentages, but 10% is maybe a bit optimistic. I would bet 20% is unreachable.

ASIC pre-orders are risky for a plethora of reasons.  Those who buy ASICs (myself included) share the risks involved with the manufacturer.

Abdicating responsibility with glib '100% not *MY* fault' statements only demonstrates lack of maturity and inability to think critically.

Only the most naive wishful thinkers among us would believe that zero-risk guaranteed-profit free-lunch opportunities actually exist.

Company risk is certainly one we customers must take into account and possibly bear.  You'd think buying ASIC pre-orders from start-ups was no different than ordering a Hello Kitty toaster from Amazon, given many of the Shock, horror! reactions posted in the Hardware sub.   Roll Eyes

Sorry for your loss; IIRC you warned us months ago that the litigious scorched earth approach would benefit nobody except lawyers.

Too bad cedivad and the other lawyer-pimps didn't listen, and our chances of recovery are now much lower as a result.   Tongue

See, you keep getting it backwards. HashFast imploded long before the lawyers showed up. Without the lawyers, no one would be getting anything. With the lawyers, there's a small chance of getting something back.

That's just, like, your opinion man.

In reality, the bankruptcy filing (1) stopped the chips-for-MPP and chips-for-backorders processes dead in their tracks, (2) stopped HF's negotiations with potential sources of recapitalization, and (3) guarantees most of what is recovered will go to lawyers.

Fact: You foolishly chose to believe in a self-serving zero-risk interpretation of the BTC refund clause, which is an economic impossibility.
Fact: BTC suddenly went from ~$100 to ~$1000, and only an greedy idiot would actually expect a 10x windfall at HashFast's expense because of that.
Fact: HashFast was converting MPP and backorders to raw chips, when the bankruptcy filing short-circuited that process.

The correct course of action was allowing the firm to recapitalize and resume their normal course of business, not burning it down and giving the ashes to lawyers.

Ok. I'll bite. Where is the windfall in not spending your BTC with HashFast? Where is the windfall in getting your equipment on time and yielding the same amount of bitcoins back which were used to purchase the equipment in the first place?

I don't know which agenda you serve or which playbook you're drawing from. But logic certainly is not your friend. You come here and keep insulting the intelligence of HashFast victims and blame them for lending trust to people who nefariously abused it, instead of pointing the finger at those who acted in bad faith.

If you would have the least amount of decency you would just shut up and let the legal system deal with the fallout of this mess.

Anyone know how the hearing went today?

There will be an important hearing this Tuesday. The US trustee wants to appoint a trustee and the creditors committee filed an opposition because they already put a CRO in place. The US trustee says that the CRO isn't in charge at the company (in the opposition to the opposition to the motion), while he actually should.

You don't get to ask questions, and then tell me not to answer them.  At least not if you have any sense of fairness.   Smiley

I never said " not spending your BTC with HashFast" and "getting your equipment on time and yielding the same amount of bitcoins back which were used to purchase the equipment in the first place" are windfalls.  Although they would be in the financial sense, because the BTC price jumped up resulting in a large USD profit.  But you can't expect a company to honor an impossible interpretation of their refund obligations, that's unreasonable and referred to as a "windfall" in the legal domain, where it is not an actionable claim.  Most people got that memo months ago, and wisely dropped the topic.  Not sure why we're reaching back to it now...  Tongue

Even if they agreed with you, where was HF supposed to get the money to pay out 10x their orders, after spending millions to build an amazing chip and some less than amazing boards?  It was a start-up, not IBM.

I'm not insulting all HF customers here, just sharing lessons learned from being among them.

I am insulting the idiots you called "victims" who are still making off-topic Scam Accusations without evidence, and moaning about how they bear zero responsibility for sharing the unavoidable inherent risks of pre-ordering ASICs from a tiny new company.

DYODD and stop whining when you gamble more than you can afford to lose, only to lose.  It's just business, grow up and stop making it personal.  HF wanted to be the Nvidia of ASICS, not the 3dfx, and certainly not a scam.  It's not the first time having the best product was insufficient to maintain solvency.  If it's really your first personal experience of that phenomenon, consider this an expensive but valuable lesson (with my sympathies).
