We do not know who there are? No information about the owners and investors. Is a BIG RISKS, don't be greedy and waste your money on them. They charge an Extra 11% so their prices becomes $7.32. Only newbie posting on their thread. Most of the old timers knows this could be a Scam.

Here is the only information we know of this Abdi? Who is he? a 23 year kid on the block?

Since it is so easy to earn 1% or 2% from providing escrow services, they will turn a blind eye if anything goes wrong with your order. Do they release the funds only after you received and run the miner for the next 72 hours to your satisfaction or escrow will be release immediately after the miners are shipped? Would Abdi Mahamud submit his Passport and Driving License to John K and Escrow.com?

I think you've spammed this enough to get your point across. You're looking like a troll with an axe to grind now.

I'm not sure why you keep saying "old timers" know this could be a scam. I'm an "old timer". I don't see their angle. Sure I have my doubts about how they could deliver, and they seem to be a bit inept at things and generally secretive, but how will they scam? They are only accepting escrow. They are much more generous than other pre-orders about refunds (and your funds will be sitting in escrow, so the escrow holders will be the ones following the terms).

They are charging 10% more if you choose to only put 30% in escrow now, which makes sense. You're electing to tie up 30% instead of 100% of your funds for a few months, so you pay a small premium.

Yes, I have an order with them. Does that mean I'm not a bit on edge? No, but I don't see how anything can go wrong either. As for some people saying they could send people rocks, I don't see John K releasing escrow if a bunch of people report they got rocks (their page also gives you time to test the unit after receiving before escrow is released to them).

Very Scary because we Don't know who are there? What they do? They charge an Extra 11% on top of their normal price.

$6.60 becomes $7.32

More Expensive compares to Cointera.

Now you're just making stuff up.

CoinTerra announced their 2 TH/s rig at $15,750. That's $7.88/GH. And, for now, that's your only option - you have to have a lot of cash upfront while XCrowd offers other options. They also aren't using escrow or other chargeback-able payment methods.

Not to construe this as advice for who you should purchase from, but it's one thing to urge caution and another thing to make stuff up.

Well, not a sockpuppet but just a long time lurker.  Smiley
Lately, with all the spam and OT flooding ASIC related threads, I thought I really need something like an ignore list.

But yes, even a newbie could easily get tired with all that mess!  Wink

How does John K or Escrow.com terms and conditions work? Did you all read through how John or Escrow.com works? When does John or Escrow.com releases the funds to xcrowd? Upon delivery or Upon receiving and opening up the boxes with the miners and run this miners for 72 hours satisfactory before x crowd could get their hands on the funds, if not they could be sending you a box of fans or an empty box.

From X-Crowd:

1) Inspection period after delivery is 5 days??

2) The 11% over charge he term as premium what a joke

3) Does anyone knows the owners and investors in X-Crowd

4) Would the owners submit Passport and Driving License to John K or Escrow.com for escrow verification, are these documents Genuine?

5) You don't have proof and working prototype? do you? but you are collecting money

6) We need the Escrow Confirmations from John and Escrow.com the Terms and conditions posted onto the Forum here for everyone to view and comment, have you ?

Many postings and questions from the member but got no response from him, even his shill and troll working on his behalf were quiet? did he really decided to go MIA? or he is trying to established his identity? getting photo shop and writing another story.

Eve is on my ignore list.  However, do you expect Escrow.com to verify the unit's hashrate before releasing the funds?  Are they going to know how to do that?

Some of eve's post is trollish, BUT yeah, if we don't have some solid identity factor on the founder or proof of working hardware, it is a big risk.

SHUTUP AND TAKE MY MONEY!

Not trollish at all. Now xCrowd is working on creating an identity for us to digest. I don't know if it is for real or fake? give them sometime to write a great story line.
