Anyone but a scammer and a mining company that didn't even bother taking pictures of the first sierra, right?

Don't know, but you could be right.
What other reason to say "several" when he kowns exactly it is 1.5 unit ? Or 3? Or 10?

I hate to defend HF and related, but "several" is a good datapoint if you ask me. It's several. It's not 3, it's not 100, it's several.

Sure. But if several is 5, then why not say "5"?
Classical deception, usually meaning "several" is at the bottom (or the top, but bottom is most likely, here) of whatever figures it includes.
Anyway, I'll shut up for now, good luck with the refunds.

Remember Batch 2-4 investors should work right away on their refunds. It might be too late soon.

I'm sorry but maybe english is not your first language but several is plural for seven units.

To clear the air here on English.  "Several" means a number larger than two.  It could be three (but is a "unit" a whole Sierra or a board?).  It could be more than three.  It would be quite strange to refer to a number greater than, say, 10 as being "several", but not technically wrong in the sense that referring to a number less than 3 as "several" would be.

Assuming there are any HF funds left to dispense?

If Batch 1 is successful, I am pretty sure Batch 2 through 4 will probably sue Batch 1 folks for the USD recompense. Though we all know in a sane world that is not possible.

If they only had 600k from familial investors, and the rest (approx, 15 Million according to businessweek) came from you all....then HF would only have about 600k if all funds were returned to their customers. Minus the costs to date @ 28nm and R&D...


50BTC per Batch 1 order.
x 200 orders ~
= 10,000 BTC (obviously some of that was straight forward USD payments...so it is nowhere near that)

10,000 BTC @ Todays rate
x 840 USD
= 8.4 Million

10,000 BTC @ Yesterdays rate
x 100 USD
= 840,000

Edit: And if you do the math like HF wants it:

1,000 BTC
x  100
840,000 USD (@ ~ -90% deduction)

Edit2: I should state that scenario would only be true if HF really did sell off all of it's customers property (BTC) to USD at some point in the past. They would need 10x to buy it back and put it in the hands of the rightful owners. Screwed~!

Since that we purchased miners and they proved to have them working, and possibly metric tons of them working, i think that the majority of us would welcome a fair amount of hashing power at a definite moment in time instead of the deserved refund.

I know you probably don't want to say anything publicly about your case.

Are you making the case that HF took your funds to develop a product (the BabyJets and Sierras) and then when it came time to deliver they simply returned 10% of your converted BTC property in USD rather than the full amount?

Are you trying to say that HF had no intention to deliver on it's end? (MPP and the original hardware?)

Edit: Actually, your right, if you didn't go for the 10% USD refund, you might be able to recoup the equivalent of the HF settlement through the use of the machine plus its MPP and then sell it all off to a third party. You'd never be made whole. But you'd be stupid to ultimately take their settlement...which seems to be very little in light of that thinking.

It is probably the worst case scenario you could possibly imagine. (Well besides them going bankrupt)

Edit2: I have a legal question, does this mean that HF is targeting BTC payors "unfairly"? Even if people didn't request a refund they are still being given a fraction of what they originally gave.

Does this mean that HF has no intention to deliver the hardware + MPP if you originally paid with BTC? Say it ain't so!

There are many things we can find HF guilty of, so it won't be a problem to have an award with what we deserve from the arbitrator. After that they will probably decide that they don't want to pay, and we will do whatever necessary to have what we deserve, or equivalent, out of their three companies (probably more?).

If that fails too, we will have lost a bit of money for the bigger cause. And in that case we will try, i have no idea of how, but i at least will try, to have the state go after them for the fraud they committed. The legal system after all is there for this reason, and it's just fair.

There must be a reason if the only report of HF employee leaving the company we have is... From the one that was studying law. Right? Smart girl...

PS: and if i die in a car accident before that i guess that it being a verifiable fact, the community will run the second part of my plan, the one that has to do with the state and the frauds.

If things devolve to forced arbitration instead of full BTC refunds - like they promised us, the DZ Miners Cooperative is down for teaming up with forum members for a mass action to help spread the pain of pre-payment of setting up arbitration, and any other follow on actions to get our full BTC back (oh,  and to make HF pay for arbitration and legal costs, for making us have to go through this instead of doing the right thing).

We have 2 upgraded BJs on order from Batch 1, 2 Sierras from Batch 2, and a whole bunch of disappointed miners. No update to my "support ticket", so far.
