Group Buy for 2.2-2.7 GH/s Blue Fury USB Miners

I made this because there seems to be an interest in these units in my country (Philippines) so if there are enough local people, all orders will be local.

So I'm making one for at least one or two batches, and also hopefully all orders will be local. International buyers are also welcome. People in other neighboring countries are encouraged to order here, so we can all have some chips in this region.

If you are closer to the United States, Canada or Europe, please order from the other resellers at their thread:

Electricity consumption as low as 2.5 watts and 500mA

Powered by the USB port without any other power source
Firmware is open for more optimization, using highend microcontroller AVR by Atmel

Refunds
Your orders are binding. Your coins will be sent to Big Picture Mining Cooperative in order to buy the BitFury chips and on to finishing them all the way to assembly and finally shipping to the Philippines.

Shipping within Philippines
Since these items will be paid in fiat, they will be charged after I receive the units and before they are sent to you.

Ordering
Before you order, please do your risk analysis.

If you still want to buy and are fine with the above pricing model, then you will have to participate in the risk and pay your order upfront. If you understand the risk-factors you should clearly understand why I can't afford to charge you later.

This is a fund raising for a group-buy.

There is one common payment address: 1DabshLusCoyQB16WSCmWpxwNUjKLzJQLs

https://blockchain.info/address/1DabshLusCoyQB16WSCmWpxwNUjKLzJQLs

To buy
  • select your number of units N,
  • send the total amount (C = N * 0.90) to the given address
  • post or PM me 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
    if your wallet application does not let you select the sending address and sends from multiple, please post only one of them (and keep the address for a while)


Examples:
Dabs; 1; 0.90; 1YourBitcoinAddressHere
Dabs; 5; 4.40; 1YourBitcoinAddressHere
Dabs; 10; 8.70; 1YourBitcoinAddressHere
Dabs; 20; 17.00; 1YourBitcoinAddressHere
Dabs; 100; 84.00; 1YourBitcoinAddressHere
Dabs; 500; 415.00; 1YourBitcoinAddressHere

Please sign orders in the post or the PM. Use your bitcoin address, sign the one line message, post the signature in the next line.

Reminder
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.

Once your order has been submitted please send a PM to me, Dabs

With the following :

Bitcoin Talk Username
Transaction ID#
Shipping Address if you will not pick up. Or one of the locations below if you will pick up.

The buying window opens now and closes when BPMC stops selling units.

Shipment
The units will be forwarded to you as soon as I receive them and you paid the fiat component mentioned above. Delivery within the country will usually take less than a week; overseas will take what it takes. You will be given the option to select shipment method on time and resolve customs specific issues. Also you can pick it up if you are in the Philippines. See below.

Trust
If you are residing in the Philippines, you can come and see me.

If you are here, I have at least 19 pick up locations all over Metro Manila where you can get your chips (meaning no shipping, just pick it up.)

I have a brick and mortar shop in these locations, therefore I can hold your chips there until you pick it up. They are located in:
1. Glorietta 3
2. SM Bicutan
3. SM Manila
4. SM Mega Mall
5. SM Fairview
6. SM Mall of Asia
7. SM Cubao
8. SM North EDSA
9. Festival Supermall
10. Rockwell Manansala
11. Ayala Trinoma
12. SM Calamba
13. Molito Mall Puregold (near Alabang Town Center)
14. Metro Gaisano Mall (near Alabang Town Center)
15. SM Center Pasig
16. SM Makati Annex
17. The Podium
18. Hotel InterContinental Manila
19. Robinsons Place Manila


There are a few more locations, but they're kinda far already. Anyone else will have to ask for shipping by Air21 (FedEx) or LBC or some other courier of your choice. I have some business in Cebu, but I will still have to ship the chips anyway.

GPG ID: 32AD7565, OTC ID: Dabs

Communication
I live in the Philippines (TZ: UTC+08) and have an exhausting day-job, which limits me to communicate in my evening hours. So if I did not respond to your email or your post within some hours, it is just because I'm at work. Or I'm already asleep. Please be patient.


additional clarifications

Escrow
I did not offer escrow for a simple reason: as soon as the payments come in, I'll order. No idea how long the chips and units will be in stock, but I would like to act fast.

Actually, you can think of this as a self-escrow. I am facilitating the group buy for Filipinos and other people who are staying in or near the Philippines.

Reservation, Payments
Your order is your reservation. Only BTC payments. There are several local bitcoin traders here. The blockchain is the indisputable proof of your payment, let's use it as is and prevent manual accounting.

WARNING: Difficulty is going up
Difficulty is going up. You better know what you're doing. Once the units are bought, that's it. Either you do this for fun, or learning, or you don't mind getting an ROI of 6 to 12 months on this investment.


Cheers,
Dabs

P.S. Here is a picture of me, from another thread. This is in 2009 when I got married. I am an officer and a gentleman. If you are Filipino or know someone in the military, you can show this picture to them. They won't recognize me, but they will recognize the badges and pins. They might also recognize the background as the chapel or church where I got married inside Camp General Emilio Aguinaldo, Quezon City.

On the right pocket (left looking at me) is a rifle sharpshooter badge under my name plate.
On the left pocket (right looking at me) are the light armor badge and the field artillery badge.
The yellow egg looking badge is Special Forces.

There are additional pins in my updated uniform this year.

Some portions have been blurred to prevent local insurgents and rebels from making me an assassination target.

I am not going to take your bitcoins, and trust me, no one is going to attempt to take your chips away from me.

Oh, I have a Commission on Elections Certificate of Authority, which means, I am exempted from the gun ban during this election period. I carry a full size 1911 in 45 ACP, always, everywhere.

Okay. I will keep taking orders as long as BPMC has units to sell.

Also, this is the only place I will be selling them. Like the others, if you are within the same region and would like to do ebay sales, that's up to you.

Name has been changed to Blue Fury. We will be using blue lights with this new batch. Same speed. Same hashing power. Still the fastest USB miner in the world. Different light wavelength.

Hi Dabs,

Thanks for putting this group buy together, I'm sure I'm not the only one that's looking forward to getting a couple of these units.

Just wanted to confirm please that you'll have no problem sending some units to Australia? I'll be after twelve of them and am comfortable them being sent International USPS Priority unless there is any pressing reason to ship International USPS Express (I assume both methods are tracked?)

I also assume that my total is 12 * 0.87 + 0.3 Priority shipping = Total 10.74 BTC

I'm rather new to Bitcoins in general and like things to be straightforward. I use Electrum as a wallet and have no idea how to sign transactions and don't want to be messing around with the 'load raw transaction' field for that matter either. I prefer to do business on the basis of trust. I do however, control the address, will obviously provide you with a transaction number and will be in a position to forward the full BTC amount within twelve hours when the banks are open here. I'll PM you the shipping address and transaction details at that point in time.

If there is anything further I should know or am required to do, please let me know either here or by PM.

Thanks very much indeed.

OleOle

OleOle, that is perfectly fine. Your calculations are correct. Don't worry, if you are the first person to PM me about the transaction, it makes perfect sense that you are the one ordering. I put the "signing" requirement to avoid potential issues, but a little common sense and manual processing helps, since nothing will be automated in this group buy.

Correction to name change: We will be using blue colored PCB boards. The lights might be a different color. It's still the world's fastest USB miner.

*edit* Yes, I can ship to Australia. We're not that far from each other.

Excellent. Thanks very much for your reply Dabs, it is gratefully appreciated.

I have just forwarded the 10.74 BTC as mentioned and have also sent a PM to you confirming the transaction details, shipping address and my contact information.

If you have any queries whatsoever, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Thanks very much once again,

OleOle

Confirmed. I will update the 2nd post for all confirmed orders.

I am working with third party who can accept paypal and just forward me the equivalent in BTC. If it happens, please note that the paypal price will be slightly higher than the bitcoin price because of fees. So I suggest you still try to pay in bitcoins, as that's the whole point of it, less fees.

Deadline for first batch delivery is ... supposed to be today. All who are sending payments today or early tomorrow will be included in the first batch.

We are all doing a single run for a whole bunch of chips. I do not know if the Group Buy can be continued after this, but I will update you guys on the status.

If possible this will be a continuous GB as long as we can keep getting orders and they can keep making miners, which my guess is maybe until November or December.

If not possible or not likely, everyone who pays after the next couple of days (maybe 27 or 28) will simply get a refund. If you have a reservation and are just waiting for Mt. Gox, that will be considered. Please PM or post here.

I will give updates on the status of all orders in my second post up there.

Blue Fury is in production, so we are on track for mid October shipping.

You can always order more, as any cancelled or pending orders will be eaten by new confirmed and paid orders, and those in excess of production will be refunded.

All group buys from all over (there are a few others, in case you didn't notice) would total to about 3000 units. So there is room to spare if you can send in the BTC now, or PM me for a reservation.
