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

This is nice of Nick/Blokforge offering discounts on future purchases but at the same time for everyone who supported Blokforge (and were previous customers) by purchasing the 841s right away, I feel it is a little unfair as people who sat on purchasing (and received the coupon) now get a better deal on the same batch of units we are all still waiting on to be shipped. I guess that is business but it makes you think twice about purchasing early.

I don't know if people who just bought 841s are supposed to have the coupon or 841 and 821s.  Maybe try e-mailing Blokforge with your concern and see what they say...  All I know is I ordered both batches of 821s (I was one of the "lucky" ones  Shocked) and a few of the 841s.  I got the Coupon code and I felt special.   Smiley  I wish I could afford more 841s.  At the current price they are still price competitive with the recent S9 price drop.

Great to hear!  My electric bill has a monthly peak demand component to it, that toggles around the 23rd of each month.

I always find it annoying to have miners ready to turn on and have to wait a week for the new period to start.  Breakeven for me is around 8 days, so here is hoping delivery is closer to the 1st!

That, and of course, I'm anxious to play with my new toys...

ps.  Tonight is the night!  Shortly after midnight I'll be toggling on my last batch of miners.

Canaan is competing with their distributors and Bitmain.They just dropped the price of the 841 down to $1625. Looks like you are right, the people rushing to buy earlier are going to end up paying more and getting it at the same time as the late buyers. If you're able to buy 20 from Canaan right now, you'll get them before the distributors. It's a 3 week wait for everyone else. Looks like Bitmain may drop their prices again too with this move by Canaan.

Another distributor lowered their 841 pricing today as well stating due to Canaan/BTC pricing. Maybe Blokforge can follow suit and take care of their customers who already placed orders.

Canaan is not "competing" with their distributors. They work very closely with Blokforge and others to maintain their supply chain. They set up this distribution network to get Miners into the hands of the public without the ordering fiasco of 8000+ people all trying to order from their site within seconds of product availability.

Also as you can see if you read back through the pages Blokforge was able to work with Canaan to offer reduced pricing to customers through coupons and discounts as a good will gesture for purchases made during higher pricing a 4-8 weeks ago. That being said Nick and Blokforge have been very open about responding to email requests to try and sort out payment/pricing issues all you have to do is email them, and in my mind be curtious and reasonable in your expectations.

Also the 20 units you quoted, is still actually 60 MOQ from Canaan, if you try to order now it comes in with a set quantity of at least 3 packages.

Obviously, people are not rushing to buy bitcoin miners anymore. As there are loads available everywhere you look. If Canaan isn't competing with their distributors, then why are they listing the bulk orders below blokforge's pricing? They also list a single quantity, tho it's out of stock. Why even do that if they don't want to sell directly to the public?

1) you cannot and will not be able to buy a "single" unit from Canaan direct.

2) they will sell to the public if you buy 60 or more.

3) the price they show on the website is roughly what they charge Blokforge (not taking into account any volume or official distributor discounting. So it makes sense the pricing at Blokforge would be higher considering they also pay shipping and import fees.

It really shouldn't be hard to understand a proper distribution chain.

Simply put 60+ units Canaan direct
59 - units Blokforge (or your nearest distributor)

I sincerely appreciate the support via forum, email and phone from Blokforge. But, as others have said, why are early bird buyers being penalized for submitting orders and sending money, over late comers just looking because of a deal? There’s a reason well known distributors offer a pre-order, “price match guarantee.” This tactic teaches buyers to wait until the last moment to buy to avoid feeling slighted again, instead of promoting us to order as early into the process as possible.

Recommending people contact Blokforge to plead for something actively marketed to buyers who haven’t already ordered is demoralizing to current customers. I hope they’ll reconsider supporting us as well.

Can I just say WTF are you talking about?  1 post and you know everything?  Perhaps you should read back through this thread and see what they have done, both for customers who bought 821's at a ridiculous price, for customers who bought 841's when they were released and then were surprised 2hrs later, and for customers who get consistent email offers from this distributor.

I have nothing but awe for the way they have treated me as a new customer buying my first Avalon in January.  They have consistently gone above and beyond - within their means.  Nowhere should a customer expect a seller to go out of business for them just because the customer perceives they know everything about a distributor and seller relationship.

Its just fascinating how some people think I guess....

Gotta agree with ya. +1 Merit for ya. Perhaps they just have never dealt with buying miner before...
Anywho, ref my latest purchase of 841's with Blockforge due to their active customer support. In short as reward for paying the high initial 821 pricing, I was able to get 2x 841's, 2x Sorcer PSU's, 1 controller w/ 5v wall wart, and 1 AUC3 dongle: all for less than the lower listed price for 2x 841's.

To top it off just got a $200 coupon towards any miner they have in stock inc s9, L3, A3.

All in all, excellent Customer Appreciation and Well Done Blokforge!

Which batch have you bought ? All I got is a coupon, bought the March batch at like almost twice as the 841 is at the moment.

I had ordered Jan 17th for early Feb delivery, the 821 price was around $3600 at the time.
All I can say is send Blokforge an email asking about your  'early buyer' status and an additional possible discount for it.

And me.  Not even going to complain about the price drop on the Canaan site - because I can't afford 60 of them!
