Cheer 1: delivered in time
Cheer 2: delivered the ordered good (over-delivered actually)
Cheer 3: has customer service

Business as usual one may think, BUT: Nico sells ASIC-Miners! An economic sector in which points 1 to 3 are totally unknown, unexpectable and maybe even undesirable.

To my knowledge, BFSB is the only one in this business to date, that kept what they promised to their customers.

In recognition of this and as a small thank-you gift, I would like to pass some BTCs to Nico, to be used to take out his team to a well-earned traditional evening of glutony and barbaric booze-up (as far as I know they should be mostly descendants of vikings and thus familiar with such customs).

If you would like to join my little fundraising campaign:

SebastianJu, a respected and trusted member of the German bitcoin community, will post an BTC address in this thread where the funds can be sent to. He will contact Nico in mid october to get an address from him and send the BTCs over.

For background information: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=250249.0


Bitcoin addresses contain a checksum, so it is very unlikely that mistyping an address will cause you to lose money.

ASICMINER delivered on time, on spec, and without taking preorder money (they did take investors for the solo mining operation/development, but the products that came out of that did not take orders until they were in production & shipping).

Although #3 probably doesn't count, since ASICMINER is more of a manufacturer and then the customer service is left up to the retailers.


I'm pretty impressed with BitFury though, it's nice to see a company not radically alter their specs after taking in a bunch of money.

I agree Bitfury team is awesome. Now they need to jump on 28nm and price their miners to crush all competitors.

what other chips can overclock 30% or more without extreme cooling mods (just airflow)?  Grin

24" PCI-E cables with 16AWG wires and stripped ends - great for server PSU mods, best prices https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=563461 also selling 6" M-F-M PCIe splitters and PCIe-PCIe
No longer a wannabe - now an ASIC owner!

just for the people manufacturing ASICs


Dacentec, best deals for US dedicated servers. They regularly restock $20-$25 Opterons with 8-16GB RAM & 2x1-2TB HDD's (ofc, usually lots of other good stuff to choose from).  I did a Serverbear benchmark of one of my $20/mo Opteron (June last year), it's here.  Have had about a half dozen different servers with Dacentec, & none have failed to sustain at least 40MB/s (burst higher). My favorite is a 12-month rent-to-own ZT Systems 2XL5520 16GB 2x2TB SATA for $40/month (got lucky with the 'off-brand', haven't seen a RTO 2xL5520 for under $50/mo since -- at least for monthly contracts).  wholesaleinternet.com has some ancient 2-core intel CPUs @ $10/mo sometimes (I got an Intel Core 2 6300 @ 1.86GHz, with a 250GB HDD with 46000 hours on it, LOL. $20 @ Dacentec is much better, if you can grab one). joesdatacenter.com (same location as Wholesale Internet) also occasionally has specials (or if you don't want to wait, it has an AMD Opteron 170 @ $16/mo).

bump for Campaign closing. Buy the best performing ASIC-Company so far a beer (or two)!

Maybe others take an example how to do it right.

Show them that the bitcoin community recognizes the difference between being treated like bumbling idiots and being treated like a valued customer.

We know how to honor integrity and only get toxic when its appropriate.

It's little bit like what you do in restaurants, if you like the service and there is no spit in the soup you might leave little extra money on the table.

Why would you tip someone because they did what they said they were going to do?  Silly...

SebastianJu contacted punin to get an BTC address to send to, but there was no answer, so we decided to give the (small) funds to Sean's Outpost https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=295211.msg3164621#msg3164621 https://blockchain.info/address/1XEGAEjoy2cc8urafTTjRAnoXkshFc1iY

I hope this was ok for all participants.

Thanks to all and have a good time!
