Not sure if these will be available to the public outside of their mining contracts but I figured I should pass along the latest info...

http://www.zdnet.com/article/kodak-bitcoin-miner-on-display-at-ces-2018/

"According to the Kodak licensee, an upfront payment of $3,400 for a two-year contract would lead to bitcoin production value of around $375 per month at current bitcoin value. The partnership would provide the licensee with half of the resulting $9,000 made over the 24-month period. Bitcoin production would reach around $25 per day on the Kodak Bitcoin HashPower Upfront Payment Plan."

It is the Pangolinminer WhatsMiner M3,  'wearing different (Kodak) clothes'.

See my posts in the WhatsMiner M3 review thread for more information.

Man, Kodak brand couldn't be more diluted at this point. Guys, you turned your backs to digital photography and made into the economy textbooks with your incomparable incompetence, die already!

Seems that this was a SCAM.
ref https://www.ccn.com/sec-shutters-kodak-branded-bitcoin-mining-rig-kashminer/
The SEC has shuttered Spotlite USA the company behind the miner, and Kodak has denied any connection to them. The 1 fault I find with the article is that the author says the Kashminer really was a s9. Strange -- looks more like a Whatsminer M3 to me. Typical CCN 'fact checking' at work...

Why in the hell did it take so long? You'd think someone at Kodak would have seen it at CES and jumped on Spotlite's ass then and there...

I think the article is wrong, they were whatsminer machines, not Bitmain.

Well, it helped their stock price, that's probably why. And I really doubt this "no connection" claim. Kodak also announced their own shitcoin... how can this be a coincidence?

Kodak didn't care, they were getting a cut of the profits without doing anything.
