CLOSED to new orders for immediate shipping.  new orders placed here will roll into the next group which will be setup here in a few days.
next batch is going to be processed next week.
 
NOW SHIPPING YOUR ORDERS further orders will be moved to the next group which has shipped from friedcat. I would estimate it will arrive early next week.

A large delivery is set for tomorrow  see my note on the thread here https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=271054.msg2935440#msg2935440
-------------------------------------------
I've had alot of fun and a fantastic run so far guys and gals being a reseller for friedcat / ASICMiner... To celebrate, batch #20 is going to be your best deal yet with fastest service. friedcat's post is here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=270573.0

International buyers: please contact your respective re-seller: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=270573.0

Very Large orders are coming from friedcat and they are priced to move fast!! Fastest delivery, bar none!
I expect to receive inventory this Thursday/Friday.  Shipping to you same day.

Prices are .31 - .35 per USB miner or less.  Prices for blades are 10.25 btc.  Payment address: 1BywWhaLuHfoK4Hwi2ppPVRSCsxRb91cAS

USB miners:
If I handle shipping costs, the price is:
1 unit: please purchase from Eligius mining pool webpage here: http://eligius.st/~gateway/products/block-erupter-sapphire
2+ .35 each
3-14 .34 each
15-20 .33 each
21+ .325 each
100+ .32 each
200+ .31 each
1000+ PM me.

you don't need to spend btc on shipping:

If you want to generate your own label for me to ship with (such as USPS.com/FedEx) : .31 btc per unit. (check post #2, will post more instructions there in a few days as well for those who don't know how to create labels)
how to create a shipping label by BorisAlt: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=271054.msg2928336#msg2928336
Blades:

10.25 btc each (you supply the shipping label)

10.25 + shipping cost (you choose from several options with me)
To secure your units, send 10.25btc per unit.
use a btc calculator and you will see that everyday, the blade is good for 0.12889410 btc generated (using next estimated difficulty).  my shipments are lighting fast and I'm the fastest reseller.  so, if it takes you 2 extra days to receive your blade using different pricing, it's like giving up 0.2577882 btc.  is it worth it? no, you want them in your hands ASAP, and that means letting me handle your orders.  please take a second to understand this Smiley  I can clarify if you'd like. just let me know.

Setup guide for blades: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=205369.0
Original info and specs on blades: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=204030.0

4.52TH/s - 4,516,763 MH/s producing, ASICMiner USBs have been distributed by me so far.

I am 4 miles from a MAJOR DHL hub that receives these orders from China.  My delivery times are the best.  packages sent to me by ASICMiner are in my hand the same day they enter US.  They do not take an extra day or two to travel the country to get to me.  It takes me 11 minutes to drive to DHL when necessary.   My location is in a major metropolitan area next to a LARGE international airport that is a hub for shipping for all delivery companies.  This gives me access to DHL, FedEx (also just 4 miles away, open till 9 PM for next day shipping).  I have access to several Post Offices around me.  I can ship USPS till 7 PM.  I ship to you the same day I receive my delivery.  Simply put, I am in the best position geographically and logistically to receive an order and to get it out to you ASAP.  Period.

2013-08-10: HOW TO SIGN A MESSAGE TO ME (YOUR SHIPPING INFO): https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=195647.msg2291965#msg2291965 Please NOTE: the above example is NOT the same as sending a signed message with your transaction. If you are new to this (aka noob), please read this so that you understand what to do.  This is the single most problematic step in the ordering process.  Here's how to sign a message with a blockchain.info wallet: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=180068.0 Please verify the signed message yourself before you send it to me

how to send a shipping label:
I'm writing up some basic instructions to add to this post... you will essentially download that pdf label from usps and email it to canary.btc@gmail.com (email used for labels only, contact with questions via PM here)
in the body of the email, you will have 4 things:
1. transaction id of your order
2. 1st payment address of the transaction
3. tracking number (no spaces)
4. Signature (your will sign ONLY the tracking # from item #3)
additionally, if you use this method, you no longer need to PM me shipping address as a signed message.  trying to make things simpler for all.
I will check that the tracking number in item 3 matches the label exactly.


Common Questions:
When will I receive my order? Answer: I ship out the same day I receive inventory from ASICMiner/friedcat.  I do reserve up to 1 day to get it done in case DHL delivers later in the day.

Can you confirm my order? Answer:  you can confirm your own order by looking up the transaction id of your payment.  if it has confirmations that is your confirmation that your funds were received.  This is what I would do to "confirm" your order.  bitcoin is designed in a way to allow you to confirm and see what you've done.

Folks and miners,

As announced in the Official ASICMINER Hardware Information thread, I am a reseller in the USA of ASICMiner products.  International buyers, please contact your respective re-sellers.

Please Note:
Only send payments from an address you control (i.e. you can sign with it). If you send from MtGox or other exchanges, you risk loosing your funds since you can't prove you sent them. Please send from a wallet you can sign a message with.  You will send your shipping address via this method.

Policy update:
Refunds: Your orders are binding after your funds have been used to pay for an order.  Before that (while coins are piling up for the next batch), you can ask for a refund and will get it paid back in full. Understand that after you get refunded, I will not accept future orders from you.

Product Description:
USB Erupter:
    Each one mines at more than 330MH/s, powered only by the USB port.
    It serves as a replacement of GPUs for mining hobbyists.
    Your GPUs could be freed from calculating hashes and resume rendering for you.
    It is also a perfect gift for getting people to learn about Bitcoin and Bitcoin mining.
    The Sapphire Batch:
    This is the first batch under production in quantity.
    Color of PCB changed to blue
    Adding a LED which blinks when a share is found
    Fixing the cgminer compatibility problem
    Reducing the heat generated and the current to <500mA


Blades:
----------------------
Hashrate: baseline 10GHash/s, rated 10.752GHash/s, maximum 12.829GHash/s with overclocking and proper cooling
Power Consumption: 70-75W on 1.03-1.05V, 83W on 1.1V, 100W on 1.2V, 120W on 1.2V and overclocking
Hasher size: 233mm x 116mm with a 227mm x 100mm x 19mm heat sink attached to its back
Power module size: 192mm x 89mm
Ethernet controller size: 86mm x 40mm

Notes
  1. Fans are not accompanied with blades anymore. They were more or less intended to serve as a help of quick setup and mining testing for users who haven't got proper cooling yet, but turns out to be quite misleading by making people think the fans are powerful enough to cool the (already)over-voltaged and (easily)over-clocked blades.
  2. To make the whole shipping process smooth enough, no more racks are given out or for sales. As a compensate we practice the bulk price discount as shown above.
  3. Please be aware that the payment processing and shipping will be less prioritized than the remaining orders in the third auction. It may be 1-2 days less timely before the third auction's shipping is completed. After that it will resume the instant-style speed.
----------------------
Note, local pickup is no longer available for orders less than 100 units.

Ordering:

There is one common payment address: 1BywWhaLuHfoK4Hwi2ppPVRSCsxRb91cAS

To buy:

pick the number of ASICMiner Block Erupter USBs and/or Blades to order: N.
send the appropriate amount C based on Pricing paragraph above.

post your order in the following format: forum_nick; N; C; sending_address;
ensure the sending address is under your control, so you can sign with it in case of disputes

Shipment:
The USB miners/blades will be shipped to you same day I receive them but not longer than 1 day of me receiving them (just in case DHL has a very late delivery for ex.).

Communication:
I live in Chicago (CST time zone: UTC/GMT -5 hours) and have a day-job that allows me ample time to devote to this endeavor. I do sleep at night, so if I don't answer at night, please be patient.  I'm pretty open and transperant with info.  I post it as soon as I have it, I do not withhold from anyone.  Please respect everyone's time.

Cheers,

Canary

Once a transaction has 6 confirmations, it is extremely unlikely that an attacker without at least 50% of the network's computation power would be able to reverse it.

Received a few PMs about USB hubs, here's a good thread on it: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=253749.0

example of a signed message:


and this is what you'd PM me by copying from above example:

1. 1GdaJQLdcVVvhTvAHdKD3WMjQ1xdNSehaG
2:
----start below------
John Smith
1234 Way Blvd., STE 101
Some City, IL 60181
----end above-------
3: IAqNhGjiV28ZwZyn5kG83EtJN+7djc/n6c7zs9MArIAbe3ChijEg7eNa/0VqHrtdctRtG2Cxxfb/ObZCLJpsn4I=
4: transaction id: 5c27ac15f0a1aa71ffb5d080689b4bcab243b0c0aa85f908b3209ace61de8000
That's it!!!
--------------------------
how to send a shipping label:
you will essentially download that pdf label from usps and email it to canary.btc@gmail.com (email used for labels only, contact with questions via PM here)
thank you BorisAlt for putting together a quick how-to guide: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=271054.msg2928336#msg2928336
in the body of the email, you will have 4 things:
1. transaction id of your order
2. 1st payment address of the transaction
3. tracking number (no spaces)
4. Signature (you will sign ONLY the tracking # from item #3)
additionally, if you use this method, you no longer need to PM me shipping address as a signed message.  trying to make things simpler for all.
I will check that the tracking number in item 3 matches the label exactly.
--------------------------
guidelines for your own labels:

small priority box fits 14 USB miners
medium priority box fits 100 USB miners
large priority box first 140 USB miners
20 USB miners fit into a flat-rate padded envelope

1-2 blades should fit into a medium priority/express box.
we're testing how many fit into a large priority box.  there's no "large" flat rate express box, once size mentioned in the above line.

--------------------------
If you are a re-seller on eBay or other outlets, I can handle your shipping of USB miners.
- you sell
- send me the appropriate label (pdf) you generate for your sold order.
- I ship from zip 60181
- you pay me a handling fee for handling each order (negotiated).
- sit back and relax... don't bother shipping. I do that with my elves for you.

all you need to do is pay for and reserve a specific amount of units that are yours in my inventory.  I can extend credit to you and make a larger reservation initially.  so that you can use those 50 btc per day from coinbase daily and make use of negotiated credit terms.

contact me to enter into such an arrangement.  previous large purchasers will have easier starting credit terms with me  Grin

Thanks,

Canary

This pricing is getting ridiculous.  I just squeezed in on #18 for 0.55, and now they're down to 0.35.  If I had just waited a few days I would have been able to get two instead of one with the paltry few bitcoins I have.  So do I wait a week and order at 0.35BTC, or two weeks when they'll be 0.25BTC?  I've been on the wrong side of just about every price break.  As probably have most other people considering how much the price changes.

OK, complaining done.  Now off to see how quickly I can get 0.35BTC together. Cheesy

hmm a blade for 12btc  or 30 sticks for  9.3 - 10.5 btc    not sure what deal I would want. 

 The 30 sticks mean more hubs. Once hub price is tossed in 3 hubs are 2btc.  so the blade is a  bit cheaper. I need to decide what to buy.

I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.

Individual USB erupters might have more resale value (combined) than the blade. Though the blade is single item that won't require a computer running 24/7.

Whatever you do, buy some AM hardware! (disclaimer: I own few AM shares ;-))

Right now it is a huge question of old blade price vs. erupter price vs. new blade specs.  Quite frankly the old vs. new blade question is very interesting since we in theory know all the specs on the old one, new one will spawn fourteen threads of ROI discussion based on unknowns, comets falling from the sky, cows birthing live human babies, and Bitfury shipping.

What I hope is that before people start collecting massive funds for the next round of USB orders we get info on the blades so everyone can make informed decisions.  We're all itching to buy AM hardware since they announce when they're about ready to ship and actually ship! Smiley  But nobody wants to be screwed because they paid X today when the Y deal tomorrow is better.  There is also a question of how plug-and-play the blades are, since we're now at the point of casual users being squeezed out of BTC so things like USB sticks and Jalapenos will be a thing of the past when we're in 2014 unless the speed/power/heat issues go away with new chips so similar form factors can be achieved.

at  keeron ;

  I have about 80 sticks they are a bit hard to manage but I could run 100 sticks before I have too many. I could sell a pair or 2  on ebay.

  I would think 120 -130 a pair would still sell/

At Eliden ;

 the lights are cool running a lot right now


 at reactor ;  price is making it hard to decide at 9btc the blade would be an easy choice  decisions. 


 lastly at the Canary I.T.M.  ;

 you fucking rock man!  thank God some has the brains to ship the shit out fast at a halfway decent price!

I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.
