I don't expect people to ignore an unpopular opinion.

I do expect people to stay on-topic, and not drift off into personal attacks, stalking, etc.

Weaponizing the IRS to get even with someone for daring to express a different POV is not OK (unless you are Clinton or Obama).

I don't know what rock you live under, but the substrate contractor that made multiple revisions was less than intelligent, however management kept using him instead of replacing him until last revision(which didn't even happen if memory serves)
All the problems they had were due to crappy work and the shituation we are in is due to them trying to remake new/better revisions and just creating more problems... basically throwing our money away.
Of all the boards shipped and sierras shipped, i would assume around 90% failed due to power supply/damage from it going, the rest due to faulty board design, i can't image many boards are functional at this point.
The chips are just fine, they been proven to work on actual boards that were designed by someone with actual intelligence.

I'm not sure if you are trying to defend HF or point out why they failed so bad...

Did the HF customers decide to go with a bad substrate contractor? Or did management?

Most boards have failed because of cooling issues, not power supply. Is it a good design if cooling is so difficult?

What is the point of having a great chip if you can't get it to the end user in a working setup? I bought a miner, not a chip

And from what I ordered, the majority was never delivered. What did arrive, ran crippled and all but one board failed by now.

People like Edwardo, Simon, iCEBREAKER and cypherdoc lined their pockets and they are getting away scot-free

Which side are you on?
I'm on the side of the people that got screwed over by greedy, afraid, cowards that used that fear to push an agenda that was in NOBODIES interests.
I understand the failure, i knew how to fix the problem and had the means thanks to investors that saw the opportunity...
Once the petitioners went balls deep, ignoring reason, that was no longer an option.
I'm on the side that got "scammed" by fear and ignorance... Which is the side of every single creditor, whether they understand that or not.
You won't see one single petitioner be humble enough to admit they fucked up... those people are 1000x worse than hashfast ever was...
Hashfast was just terrible management... straight up.  if they were full on balls deep scam, they wouldn't have a functional chip.
The chips were the only thing they actually did right, which is why this whole clusterfuck is so sad...  they had the chance to do extremely well, but stupidity won.

i can sit here and argue for days about how bad hashfast fucked up... The PSU's are what was causing the cooling system to fail, the variance in voltages supplied were bouncing around like a bipolar kid on crack.
People that replaced the PSU's with ones that were actually decent didn't have many issues and the cooling systems didn't fail, those that did, they upgraded to better cooling equipment.
This is shit that should have been hardcore tested out the door, but since they already had board issues and people breathing down their neck, they just pushed out a shitty product... rip all those chips out and put them on well designed boards, with proper power and cooling and like some form of voodoo, you would have had a decent product.

That one board that didn't fail of yours, pull out a multimeter, check it yourself... you will begin to understand im not just some crazy raving asshat(i may be an asshat, but not crazy or raving) I actually know what i am talking about.  When the board starts drawing, you will see dips in all the voltages, Large dips, up to 1 volt difference (normally around 0.6 V+-) which is just barely out of spec (normal variance maximum is about 0.5 V-+.

As for buying a fully complete product, i 100% agree with you, you got a product, you shouldn't have to deal with understanding how it works and why(though i always make it my goal to do so, some people do not have the drive to understand as i do)
I am just showing you WHY that "product" failed, both from a company standpoint and hardware wise.   as well as why i have issues with the petitioners.

Well I see this as a design failure from the start. HF complicated itself by designing such a power hungry chip. If they kept the power consumption lower (aka less speed) they wouldn't have so many headaches with the board/substrate design. Of course retard troll icebeaker will say that it was just a failed venture and it is true. Because the path they started was the wrong path. Instead of being engineers that weight every pro and con they went the marketing way aka BIGGEST/FASTEST ASIC CHIP EVER which caused them a lot of problem that could be avoided with a slower chip.

iCEBREAKER is a troll! He and cypherdoc helped HashFast scam 50 Million $ from its customers !

We've expressed our opinion about this matter a million times, and we all agreed your view to be ridiculous indeed.

Your blatant appeal to local popularity is duly noted.   Smiley

Outside of this thread, the rest of the universe agrees windfalls are disallowed by common law principles of equity, due process, etc.

Although unpopular here in The Village, independent outside expert opinions from qualified people who matter (IE judges and AGs) recognize the fact risky start-ups go bankrupt all the time, and lack of success does not indicate presence of scam.

Is HardwareReviewer your real name?  According to cedivad, hiding behind a "fake name" means you're "just a puppet," don't ya know?   Roll Eyes

Yes it is:

I don't remember exactly when it was off the top of my head, but wouldn't the HashFast chip have been really competitive if it went out immediately, even underclocked? HashFast could have been one of the original big 3.

You seem to be implying it's the customers fault that this whole thing went south.

Can you explain what exactly happened to the millions of dollars? I've tried asking Icebreaker, but his best excuse is "adverse market conditions ate the money".

HF collected $15/gh AFTER most of the hardware development was complete and paid for. It should have cost less than $0.5/gh to produce the hardware. Where did the money go?

IMO the lawsuit wasn't the reason HF failed, it was just the straw that broke the camels back. If there was no lawsuit, there would have been another straw. The cause of failure was pretty clearly the repeated negligence/incompetence of management. (and the disappearance of millions of dollars)

This isn't really sound logic at all. What if they started out legit, but because of the repeated fuckups, shooting themselves in the foot, and legal issues, they decided to pull an exit scam via bankruptcy fraud?

PS: to everyone quoting Icebreaker, please do what 99% of everyone on this forum has done and just click the ignore button next to his name. Regardless of the topic, arguing with him will immediately degrade the debate into a shit slinging contest where he will declare himself the victor 100% of the time.

What Hashfast did isn't called "exit scam". The proper name is "tunneling".

no just a select few geniuses that THOUGHT it was in their OWN best interest to do the petition, it was quite obvious to most that they were wrong.

Sure, how much do you think was put into each board? from factory i'd guesstimate around 1000-1200 a board(including the chip) someone please correct me if i am wrong but they had to make minimums to order, i think the minimum was 5k to 8k? so lets take the low cost... $5,000,000 wasted per revision, Total income about 45 mil or something? 4 bad revisions? 20 mil literally thrown away/recycled...in time and everything including R&D... can you see why i may just be a little mad at the substrate designer and management?

Let me first start with the premise that i thought everyone was made clear of... hashfast was a scam from very conception of the company according to alot of the "special" people in this forum... The fact that they created something that did function goes against the grain of those "intellectuals"
"Exit scam" is entirely different from it being a scam from the get go, unfortunately that is how this whole ordeal started, people called it a scam with knowing 0 facts... except for two things, they haven't received their equipment, and hashfast was quiet.
Tell me, if you were determined to do something, even if you were a complete dumbass, would you still attempt?
Thats exactly what happened when they were forced to act by the petitioners... in the talks i and others made it completely and absolutely clear that they would fight it and this petition would cause nothing but a downward spiral making sure NOBODY gets anything except for the lawyers if the goal was recovery of funds... This was back in January of last year when talks with gallo literally just started. (well, kinda... i think october was the first bit of communication about other alternatives)

I will have to say i hold some form of responsibility to the petitioners, they were made fully aware of what their actions would do... and it happened EXACTLY how they were told... The initial blunders were on hashfast, the attempted recovery blunder was on the petitioners.
if they would have listened to a fairly large group of individuals, they would have had full refunds right now, and there would have been new management and for the love of God, a new board designer...
If memory serves, the signing petitioners are going to be paying a hefty price of fees that will not be provided them from liquidation... This is a small bit of justice for the creditors, but not much.

If I remember correctly I think the chip could do a minimum of 0.8W/GH (I may be wrong). If it went out in Octomber (as it was promised) then yes they would have killed it. Even in December a 0.8W/Gh was very good.

But trying tons of board/substrate revisions just to get the maximum speed is utterly idiotic instead of delivering lower speed miners.

I think they wanted to protect their preorder money, and didn't consider they could do a Spondoolies and part refund. Maybe there is something else we're not privvy to that pushed them down this path, as as we've all concluded no sane person (with hindsight at least) would have replicated what they did.

The most recent hearing was interesting.  A former Hashfast employee showed up and told the judge he handled inputting customer orders into Salesforce and that he thinks that money was siphoned from the company based on the totals he saw when he worked there.

Yes you should vote for the plan, it matters.  If you go read the proposal you will see a listing of estimated recoveries they expect to get that total several million dollars on top of the cash they have on hand right now.  The company had a 3 million dollar insurance policy for example.  They are also in the process of suing Cypherdoc to recover 3000 BTC plus a few other things.  

I just found out about this and it blew me away.  When the crap hit the fan and hashfast refused to make good on their promises to early customers I'd down-rated cypherdoc-- after all, he traded on his reputation to convince others to buy and when it didn't go as he presented if his reputation didn't take a hit, what good is reputation as a signal?   Subsequently he convinced me that in spite of his paid shilling he was mostly just another victim of this mess and convinced me to remove the rating; the shilling was crappy, but everyone makes mistakes and his "losses" in hashfast surely were enough punishment.

Today I read that litigation and discovered that he actually received 3000 BTC for his shilling services plus other considerations (and even a refund on an order), and walked with it while so many of the rest of us got squat. What the ?!?! So much for just another victim!  I've gone and restored my negative rating, damn.

Yeah, cypherdoc wasn't a victim in any sense of the word.  He made a spectacular sum of money off this fraud and unlike most customers got a full refund.  Even though Hashfast's narrative was that "refunds bankrupted the company" in reality they refunded a very small percentage of customers totaling a low six figure number in USD terms and cypherdoc was one of them.

BTW, HF's "power hungry, obsolete, uncompetitive product" is still powering Icedrill's mines, which are in turn still paying me dividends.   Cool

And of course you are loyally declaring these capital gains in your tax return, right? I would really not like to see you being narked out like CypherDoc about the BTC 3k he forgot to declare....

Any evidence he is avoiding tax? I'm sure the IRS would be happy to have that evidence.

If Ralph made an extraordinarily ridiculous creditor claim (as poster pmorici claimed earlier on this board) and IF he also tied that claim to some function of his employment compnesation at Hashfast, then the poster would have had to have reported income and paid income tax on the amount in order to become a creditor.   IF that is the case, then yes, CA and the IRS would be interested in that fact.   It would either mean his claim was fraudulent (and submitted to a court) or he committed tax evasion.

I doubt Ralph would be that stupid so I would expect his claim that is filed with the court, is based on his AFTER tax purchase of equipment.

The chips were the only thing they actually did right, which is why this whole clusterfuck is so sad...  they had the chance to do extremely well, but stupidity won.

You seem to be implying it's the customers fault that this whole thing went south.

Can you explain what exactly happened to the millions of dollars? I've tried asking Icebreaker, but his best excuse is "adverse market conditions ate the money".

HF collected $15/gh AFTER most of the hardware development was complete and paid for. It should have cost less than $0.5/gh to produce the hardware. Where did the money go?

IMO the lawsuit wasn't the reason HF failed, it was just the straw that broke the camels back. If there was no lawsuit, there would have been another straw. The cause of failure was pretty clearly the repeated negligence/incompetence of management. (and the disappearance of millions of dollars)

if they were full on balls deep scam, they wouldn't have a functional chip.

This isn't really sound logic at all. What if they started out legit, but because of the repeated fuckups, shooting themselves in the foot, and legal issues, they decided to pull an exit scam via bankruptcy fraud?

PS: to everyone quoting Icebreaker, please do what 99% of everyone on this forum has done and just click the ignore button next to his name. Regardless of the topic, arguing with him will immediately degrade the debate into a shit slinging contest where he will declare himself the victor 100% of the time.


and another one.
