Hi,

Today a Whatsminer M3 that I ordered in 2017 arrived. I plugged it in and got it hashing, then noticed that on the side there was a gluey residue, as though a sticker had been there and then been peeled off. The same residue on both sides. Then I remembered seeing the picture of "Kodak KashMiners" which seemed to be Whatsminers M3 with a Kodak sticker on the side. I googled the pic and sure enough, the stickers are the right size and in the same place as my residue. (https://petapixel.com/2018/01/11/kodak-kashminer-bitcoin-miner-rent-3400/)

Did I get sold a retired Kodak KashMiner? Or do all Whatsminers M3 come with this sticky residue? Any one else who received their Feb batch M3's notice anything similar?

I'm not particularly outraged, more curious and mildly amused.

It is a common myth that Bitcoin is ruled by a majority of miners. This is not true. Bitcoin miners "vote" on the ordering of transactions, but that's all they do. They can't vote to change the network rules.

"Kodak Kashminer" is actually a WhatsMiner M3, so I would guess this is possible.

Is it known if there are any other companies that resell Whatsminers with their own branding?
