at least they should start to take preorders soon! can't wait to give my money away...
 
someone located in this area to give a visit?  Grin

HashFast Technologies LLC

97 South Second Street #175
San Jose, CA 95113

Wohoooo!  It's just a few blocks from where I live. So proud of my Silicon Valley. I'm on vacation but I'll probably contact them later on to pay them a visit.

I'll be on day one in line the day they start selling just like with an Apple store (except I'm going to be escorted by some dudes since it'll be like walking out with gold from a store).
Go SV! Go SV!! to lead the technology charge and leave behind in the war zone the sucker, douchey and geek-wanna-be redneck company from Kansas. (You know which company I'm specifically talking about! ;-)

Yippers.  That shoo is Uniquify's address Cheesy  BTW, how did you get out of noob jail so quick -- this is your second post EVAH!

For what it is worth... google says this address is a place called Nextspace -- a co-working office.  Seems weird to me that a company that can afford a 28nm chip without preorders can't find their own office.

I went and had a visit with them, they are literally camped out in Uniquify's Building.

You walked up to the Uniquify receptionist, ask to see John from HashFast and she takes you to him.

You can't really bend this any other way, they are working closely and directly with them.

What was the address you visited them at?

Hashfast has just updated it's privacy policy, some is quite standard, but their clearly marketing orientated and looks like they are willing to sell your data;

http://hashfast.com/privacy-policy-2/

Not sure I'm happy with this...

Hey Bitcoinorama,

Thanks for pointing this out. We used an online service to generate a privacy policy, and we missed that section.
You are right, and it's been removed.  We will absolutely not sell or share anyone's data.


Thanks,
John Skrodenis

This is a great question.

Here is the answer:
Uniquify was gracious enough to allow the entire HashFast staff to work inside of their offices.  This is to both ensure that HashFast's engineering team is fully embedded with Uniquify, and to minimize any separation of HashFast's business and engineering teams during a critical time. In addition, we have rented temporary space for meetings, etc. in San Jose, and have access to additional space in San Francisco.

Since Simon and most of his team live in San Francisco, one should expect to us to soon relocate our offices closer to home. (I for one, hope this happens sooner rather than later Smiley

can you address some of the concerns others have stated in this thread? Such as the twitter feed, user accounts, private policy and etc. Your team appears to be a talented bunch. But so far, you wouldn't know that by reading this thread.

HashFast will ship their first chip (to spec) to a buying customer on, or before October 31st, 2013.

Code:
HashFast Technologies (http://hashfast.com/) is a fabless semiconductor manufacturer specializing in extreme performance hashing ASICs.

Their first chip, the Golden Nonce (GN) microprocessor, is in the final stages of development. The GN will ‘tape-out’ and be sent to manufacturing in August. Fabrication will take a little bit over two months, and the chips will ship to customers in October.

The GN chip will perform more than 400 Ghash per second, and uses as little as 10% of the power per Ghash as the current-generation ASICs.

Current-generation ASICs power per Ghash is defined as 1W for 1Ghash.

HashFast's GN Bitcoin mining microprocessor will ship to a buying customer on, or before October 31st, 2013, must hash more than 400 Ghash per second, and only draw a maximum of 40W.

Editor's note: We will judge the statement according to the forum posts. We will call it a draw if we think that there is not enough evidence either way.

Info
Opening date: Aug. 4, 2013
Bet deadline: Oct. 10, 2013 end of day Eastern Time
Event date: Oct. 31, 2013 end of day Eastern Time

when will your asic be available and are there any prices?

We will be shipping in October.

We will be releasing pricing and launching sales shortly for a one chip hashing machine, a more dense rack mounted unit, as well as individual chips.

Will you be shipping in a way that's obvious for everyone to see, so that people who bet 'yes' will make back their money, or just big mining operations like gridfinity?

+ 1

Also, what is your definition of "shipping", is that 5 units, 500 units, etc. You may claim to win the bet, by releasing just a couple units.

Thank-you, and sorry for any negativity this may have caused.

People are trusting and don't tend to read policies or agreements. Admittedly this is their fault, as much as the company, but one assumes you would put your customers interests first, which is not always the case with some companies, so I had to call you on it, as it looked like you enticed people to sign up (including myself!) before releasing the privacy policy.

Make my day! Say thanks if you found me helpful Smiley BTC Address --->

Yes!  Looking forward to details on the rack unit and pricing.

Awesome news John!

I for one am excited about the new products and chips coming out!

@all, I think its time to relax a bit, funny thing I saw that sorta rang true on a post maybe not in this one is "More answers always lead to more questions", so lets let the HashFast team focus on bringing out their products and I'm sure John or Simon will be here at times to answer any relevant questions that are on topic Smiley

How many chips do you plan to house in the rack mounted unit?
