I have a question for you all? ? ? ? ? ?




How many of you would still be whining and crying asking for BTC refunds and refusing USD refunds if When you paid for your BJ1 orders BTC had a USD value of $10.00 But then 2 weeks later it dropped to $1.00 and has been there ever since, how many of you folks would still be asking for the same BTC refund if you had the chance to get the FULL Original Value of your Order Back in USD ? ? ? ?


I ask this only because it seems like a bunch of you are just trying to use this as a GET RICH QUICK Scheme knowing that if you paid 60 BTC at a USD Value of $10.00 Each Total USD Value Of $6,000.00 and BTC now having a Current Value of $812.11 ( Current at the time of this writing  ) Would Equal $48,726.60 Total USD Value.

I believe that most of you if given this BTC Refund will just Sell the BTC Laughing as you mumble " HAHAHAHA I got 8K% Interest Payment From HashFast" as you count your money


The Best Analogy I can think of here is this.

You buy an Item from a Store For $50.00 ( On Sale Down from $200.00 )

But you find you dont want that item so you return it but you find it is no longer onsale for $50.00 but is now Back at normal Price of $200.00 So you bitch and moan because they hand you back $50.00 and not the $200.00


Grow up people You are Getting FULL VALUE OF WHAT YOU PAID IN BACK SO QUIT COMPLAINING AND STOP TRYING TO GET FREE MONEY FOR NOTHING..

YOU COULD BE IN A MUCH MUCH MUCH WORSE SITUATION Look at all the People who LOST all their BTC due to 50btc.com refusing to Pay what they owe to their mininers.


And Yes I am One of those People.

did their website just change?

"Sales are suspended temporarily. Please check back soon."

and this:


    A full payment must be received to complete and reserve an order. A partial payment does not reserve a place in line. Wire payments can take up to 7 days to confirm.
    Online payment in BTC or via wire transfers (USD).
    Direct BTC Transfers utilize the exchange rate on bitstamp.net.
    To pay in USD via wire, please email us at sales@hashfast.com, or call us at +1 800-609-3445, between 8am – 6pm pacific standard time (GMT-8).
    All Sales Final. No cancellations or returns will be accepted.


...

3. We’ve Put a Temporary Hold on Sales Due to Demand.
For the immediate future, we will take a pause on accepting new orders.


Our view is that we are still committed to selling the world’s most advanced rigs to individual miners. Diversity and democracy are the key to maintain the integrity of the network, and vibrant individual miner community is the key to maintaining diversity and democracy.
Hurrah, Bitcoin!


We will be back in touch with 4 announcements to start out 2014.

i bought an item from a store for (roughly) 50 BTC. i don't "think" in US-dollars. the price, for me, was 50 BTC. i don't care that the US-dollar's worth has declined since when i paid for my miner, i don't care for any other currency except the one that i had to use for this exact payment.

and, yes, if the "price" (of bitcoins, versus USD) had dropped since then, i still would want my bitcoins back. of course!?

that doesn't work since they listed the miner in $$$ not BTC

but they seem to have gone on record a few times assuring that all btc would be refunded....  will those instances hold up in court?
well..  that's what court is for I guess

useless discussion. period. they had their TOS. TOS was very clear in case of refund. customers asked several times about it and HF confirmed it. HF did understand it in the same way as it was mentioned in the initial TOS versions.

IT DOESN'T COUNT HOW YOU UNDERSTAND IT. IT DOES COUNT HOW THE INITIAL TOS MENTIONED IT.

"Sales are suspended temporarily. Please check back soon."

Some of us must have done a great job complaining to the FTC, Internet Fraud, Sheriff and GA as they now are under investigation (probably) and this is the first step (suspending sales). Government won't let you sell future orders until you can prove that you have not acted fraudulent.

All of us purchased from HF because we believe in Bitcoin and wanted to be part of this system, securizing transactions. Not for getting rich quick scheme, this is a game HF is playing. However we did not purchased to get f… and take it with a smile.

The MPP was based on the amount of BTC invested in the machine not a $ amount or the $5,600 MPP program would last 2 weeks and no one would have been interested. All HF works in BTC : they work on the BTC market, create BTC mining machine, create an MPP based on BTC, and only accepted BTC as a form of payment at the time I purchased and now they want to reimburse partial payment in a fiat currency?

They contradict themselves and their market (be a part of the revolution). Spitting on BTC calling it a virtual currency and becoming the biggest scam on the BTC mining world.

No, it's part of their marketing.

We would know it.

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

If HF had been contrite and willing to offer up some kind of plan to make their customers whole, I think a number of us would have been willing to let it ride.

All the batch 1 customers have seen is marketing material, proof that they don't know what they are doing, panicking, and not communicating with itself... ahh... not a good sign.  

Feels like there is blood in the water.

If they shared a plan, and executed on that plan, b1customers might have given them the benefit of the doubt.  Right now HF is looking like a round trip ticket on the Titanic.  From the passengers perspective, the ship is taking on water.  Most of us are heading to the lifeboats, while the PA system is blaring "future trips once ordered cannot be cancelled", while another is saying "no future purchases are being accepted" and most annoyingly a third is telling us "we made it" while we clearly are surrounded by freakin' icebergs.

You get no benefit of the doubt with that behavior.  You get angry websites highlighting the insanity, and a mad dash to the exits.

What sites can be used that don't employ any crapware wrappers or use any ad pop-ups to give free hosting?

I like Ninja's version as it seems more spot on and comprehensive. (Two forms)
But the old hosting site I used would make it a moot point to make a generic copy to post online.

Google Drive?

 dunno about any ads on the speedyshare website. I don't see any of it since I have plenty of ad removers installed. If there is a problem with the speedyshare website then I'll just stop using it.

Grow up? Where the fuck is the product? Yet another lie, they say they were shipping on the 31st and did not even ship any customer products. Only some to devs and the mining company.

Double down on the MPP would have been the least worst option for Hashfast, instead its management seems to be circling the wagons for a suicidal shootout with its customers.

Working together - not for "full BTC refunds" - but to twist Hashfast's arms, and legs, to force increased and hopefully accelerated hashpower compensation to Batch 1 customers was also the least worst option for most customers, because if such an effort was successful, all Batch 1 customers stood a chance at getting most of their investment back, or even a return.  The legal route?  A chance of a big payout, but especially for small guys, uncertain and self-defeatingly illogical, and it could lock in even larger losses.

This may not be a herd of cats, instead it's starting to look more like a circular firing squad.

Just to check, you guys don't actually have any delusional pipedream about getting your "same number of BTC paid months and months ago" back, do you?

Firstly because they're just going to say that "in bitcoin" means bitcoin as the payment vehicle.  Everything will be valued in USD, which is what they have to pay all 100% of their costs in.

Secondly, because good luck getting bitcoin from them.  Even a child could make it impossible to get and they will be able to recover/launder it back easily.

You should be happy for a USD refund

How do you explain them saying "if you pay 51 btc then you will receive 51 btc as a refund"? They advertised full bitcoin refunds, that's the only reason I (and many others) ordered, it was zero risk. Until they started lying and changing things they said after the fact.

I seriously hope for your sake you're not quoting some nameless tech support person probably outsourced if not minimum wage employee, because that was the *ONLY* time it was ever mentioned or even implied that it would be in the # of BTC's, and that's pretty much as far from binding as you can get.

the ToS wording is explicitly crafted to avoid this situation.  You're not getting your BTC back.  You'll get your USD back.  They're not going to eat a massive loss, or rather, a massive loss of profits. 

The ToS wording NOW is explicitly crafted to avoid this situation.

Nameless techs, COO, CEO, of the company, how many people need to say btc refunds to make it true?

The ToS I signed said that refunds would be issued according the exchange rate on the DAY ORDERED.

Please post it, i'd love to see objective, proven evidence of this claim.  I've been passively following this situation and while i feel bad for you, many of you look like you're trying to exploit the situation to get 5-10x gains by getting BTC back.

You'll win me over to your camp i guess if you can post this OBJECTIVE EVIDENCE OF THEIR TOS THAT **** EXPLICITALY STATES *** NUMBER OF BITCOIN

REMEMBER : when it say "paid in bitcoin"

BITCOIN IS THE ******VEHICLE******** FOR PAYMENT

it ** NEVER SAID *** that BTC was the VALUE.  they can PAY IN BITCOIN and USE USD VALUEAS THE QUANTITY

It's all posted already:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=391251.0



Yeah i saw it

Sorry to break it to you guys but

>In response to an email sent to the support on 08/16/13:

That's not the ToS.  That's not legally binding.  that's literally less than nothing.  If that is all you have to go on, you have zero fucking chance of getting your BTC # back.

Again, i hope for your sake you have something concrete.  Otherwise take your USD and suck it up.  You could have been handed a worse hand, you could have been BFL'd

BTW

"

Orders are taken in BTC, in the unlikely event we get to refunds they will be given in BTC.
"


That doesn't mean # BTc.  that means you'll get BTC, if it says "full value" that implies USD, what they pay 100% of their costs in, and what you measure profit in.

Actually now i'm wondering if some of you actually tried to use this as a HEDGE, thinking you could cash out BTC back 1:1 in the most volatile exchange market in the history of fucking mankind.  That would be fucking stupid of you

You're being a serious tool. There have been numerous quotes and examples of communications from the company which will be seen as a valid offer before all these attempts to cover their ass recently. The reason they will have a good chance of getting their original payment back is because they gave up xx bitcoins to make the purchase, and to be made whole, they need to receive xx bitcoins back. It could be a crapshoot either way, but your attitude is totally uncalled for. These people are victims of a scam. When they made the purchase they HAD xx bitcoins. They will not profit by getting them back, they will be getting back what they paid. Accepting usd value of a modified conversion rate now would be a tremendous LOSS for them, not the other way around in your warped mind where they "cash out" "5-10x" gains.

The chance of people getting their original BTC back is slim to none. Think about it for a minute. If HF did refund back the original BTC they would have millions of USD losses. They would go bankrupt in 30 days. People that elected to keep their miners would get nothing and most would be left fighting in court. It does not matter what Eduardo said in a chat or how you interpret the TOS. You are lucky if they give you back anything because of the way things look with sales stopped on their website. I believe that HF is in a death spiral.

Hashfast raped B1 customers violent.
The interesting part in this soap opera (admitt Eduardo would fit like a glove in some spanish b-production, look at that false smile) is if someone dares to fight back / take revenge.

For real, not just hide behind and LCD and type angry words. Hashfast thinks that you all are stupid geeks, that all you'll do is serve them some paper in court and think that will solve anything.

They have already moved all funds to a banana republic, you're fucked.

The truth hurts, right?

I'm not trying to insult anyone, i'm just telling you guys how scammers act after a big heist like this.

It's perfect. Of course they sent out a couple of dev units to keep your hope up.

Edit: Next step in "How to scam, big time" , after the poorly,  hand assembled dev units going out, is that within 2-4 weeks they will pull HashFast.com

 Then within a week comes the official statement from Eudoardo where he with a tear in his eye declares HashFast is no more and they will try (<--) to make sure everyone get's their money back. Curtain, the show is over.
