BTC being down is beside the point. He paid $3600 for an 821 and it hasn't arrived yet. When it finally does in a month, he realizes he's never going to break even on it as difficulty will be even higher by then and will continue going higher. At least if he bought BTC outright, he doesn't lose anything as long as he holds it until BTC comes back. Whereas the 821 miner will lose value day by day as it earns less & less until it becomes obsolete. And to make matters worse, Canaan is shipping out the new 841s the same time as the 821s and at a lower price. He can't even sell his 821 at a 50% loss as who would buy it when there's a more efficient 841 on the market.

If this is true it was not ordered from us, the first batch has been long delivered by now, as well as the second batch.  Next month is the 841 batch.  Not trying to argue, just do not feel people should thinking we are not shipping on time when ever batch we have shipped early to date.

I didn't pay 3600 thankfully, it wasn't first batch, I tried to get one of those but the website didn't load. Still paid more for an 821 than what the 841s are going for. It's doubtful that I'll ROI my 821 with the difficulty increases.

Also I should be getting it soon my post wasn't about shipping, point is seeing the 841s priced that much cheaper is a slap in the face. It would have been better to buy bitcoin.

Well done Blokforge, pricing is trend setter for 841. After seeing hardware manufacturers gouging consumers for "latest tech" someone has perspective. Although I'm in the same boat with 821 pricing but that's the market. Am I happy no, but supply and demand. We decided to buy or not buy, knowing that new tech is coming or jump in right away. Those who say to trade and hold the same applies, think of those who purchased at $20k BTC valuation at this point in the market. It's about anticipation and timing. Still happy with 821's for now at least but the $3k price was hard to swallow.

I can attest Blokforge ships straight away. Never had a delay and typically product arrives at expected in condition expected.

Blokforge is by far the best distributor I have ever dealt with.  No questions asked.  Seriously, customer support both here, email, and phone is unmatched.  They are USA based in Arizona, and always willing to fix any silly mishaps that may happen.  Anyone who thinks there is a better distributor out there is absolutely insane.  You can't even get a miner fixed from bitmain half the time and they aren't even IN the USA.  Blokforge on the other hand... you can literally pick up the phone, call, and a live person picks up to answer any questions.  Even if blokforge was more money I would PREFER to go through them than anyone else because I feel the level of service they give their customers is unmatched.

We have been negotiating with Canaan for the past week, and hoped to finish prior to sale yesterday, but we are going to launch new pricing today, and credit back those whom have purchased the 841 batch thus far the difference.  If buyers of the first or second 821 batches wish to order contact us and we can pull up original order and offer a discount to offset previous prices, that is coming from us not canaan.

At this price they will move fast...

How will this work? Email or PM you? I got 2 of the Feb 821's and a discount towards a couple of the 841's will be perfect.

no that got changed with the 821.  The only thing included is the i2c cable that would be used to connect to the AUC3 or another miner

For those that don't know, these in my opinion work so much better from a internet connectivity standpoint.  No longer do you have to run an enet cable to each miner as you do on the AntMiners.

They use a raspberry Pi3 as a controller running a version of OPENWRT with cgminer preloaded and a nice web interface to configure, view status, etc.

Each *controller* can support up to 4 of the AUC3 (which do not come with the miner, instead I believe one is included with the controller if you buy a controller from canaan).  Don't overlook this step if you are just getting started with the Avalon 8s. 

Each AUC3 can support up to 5 miners

This means that a single rPi3 controller can support up to 20 miners on a single enet connection.... Or if you want a wireless connection.

Bottom line, the miners come with a single cable that can connect to an AUC3 or to another miner (they do not come with the controller or the AUC3)
The AUC3 plugs into the rpi3 and can support up to 5 miners per each
The rPi3 can support up to 4 AUC3's for a total of 20 miners
enet plugs only into the rpi3, not the individual miners

The easiest solution is to just buy a controller/AUC3 from the guys at BLOKFORGE, but they are so much more flexible than the AntMiners IMHO.

(one final note, if you have 741s or 821s, you can not mix them on the same controller, 7s wont run on 8s and 8s wont run on 7s.  I already know this as I have 741s and 821s

Blokforge's price on the 841 is lower than the S9 and DragonMint per TH (the 841 is shipped/DDP), and it is more efficient than an S9 so you can run it longer.

Who even really knows about the DragonMint, but the 841 ships first for those who are ordering today.  Smiley

I'm actually betting on Bitmain dropping the S9 price 25% or more, but we can only compare with today.

Other than the fact BTC might bounce before the 841s come in and it might be better to just buy...but like old poster with the little boy on it that my Grandmother had, "When I grow up I want to be a farmer until I'm broke".

Blokforge, you are my hero.  Thanks!

: )

Btw, you ruined my plans to buy 3 new S9s.  I, along with many others, did not expect Canaan to come back down to earth.  Good job!

Kudos and Merit points to Blockforge!
Just dealt with Nick @ Blokforge and got 2x of the 841's, 1 Blokforge RasPi, 1 AUC3 and 2x Sorcerer PUS's at very substantial discount in return for the high price I paid for 2x 821's back in January. Once these new miners arrive I'll be running well over 300THs on Kano Smiley

Love these folks!

That is great to hear Blokforge taking care of their customers, especially since Canaan did not offer any credit back on those units. Hopefully Canaan has or will make it up to them in another way.

I had to join in to say Nick/Blokforge's customer service is the best I have seen in the Bitcoin community!
To go to bat for us like that with Canaan and then offer additional discounts to those who got early 821s is really great service.

Hopefully the difficulty won't rise too fast with all these new 821s and 841s coming online!  Smiley

Blokforge is legit.... I had an issue with a wiretransfer (bank fault), I picked up the phone and they answered the first time i called.
    Only sucks I grabbed 2x821's from the pre-sale batch @ $3600.00.   but... thats the nature of the beast.  Im not looking for ROI within a year or 2, I'm looking just to add the TH's  to my farm.  In 3-4 months, i will be ordering 6-10 841's.  It takes money to make money.   BTC is NOT going anywhere for a LOOONG time.  Far greater than i will be alive.

PSA...Please don't try to transfer or sell coupon codes given out by Blokforge as a very generous gesture to customers for their previous orders.   Cry

We don't want to take advantage of Blokforge's generosity and not have similar opportunities in the future.  I'm not sure Blokforge would comment on this, because Nick is just too nice and accommodating...but I am 99.lotsof9s% sure that this was not their intent.   Wink

Blokforge isn't Bitmain.  Smiley
