I know nothing about these guys, I found them on LinkdIn. There site is so vague with no mention of hash-rate, price, or expected income.  I think we just found out what Josh has been doing with his free time. It smells like one of Josh's projects.

Awesome, the address is a UPS Store. I don't think this exactly qualifies as "Custom Hardware" anyway.

It's just a bitcoin enthusiast (aka one of us with a business idea) - https://www.facebook.com/rowan.salter.14. This should be moved to another forum.

Just an fyi - they are saying that they are leasing out equipment with HashFast chips, yet we have no idea who this is:
http://leasebit.com/Braun-1-Assalter.html

If you are behind this website, and have actually purchased equipment from us, please contact me personally, and I will confirm here.

Thanks for clearing this up.

I'd hate to have customers intending to buy HashFast products not get what they paid for.

"Bitcoin enables ordinary people to fight back, to avoid and evade snooping governments, which enact, use and abuse laws that allow them, without due process, to investigate, tax, control and seize privately owned assets."  -   Leon Louw

“We can say without equivocation that firms like MasterCard, Visa and the TBTF banks like JPMorgan and Goldman hate the idea of ever having to compete for business again. They have grown comfortable in their corrupt world of writing laws for themselves without any regulatory oversight. They enjoy the exorbitant privilege of bilking the American economy with extortionary transaction rates. They are scared of Bitcoin. And they should be. It offers transparency, cost efficiency and anonymity.” - Max Kaiser

They could have at the very least used spell check... or are they actually claiming their product alters asses...

The site is to a point where it almost has a "prank" feel to it, like someone just did it for shits and giggles and to see if it would get a mention on bitcointalk.
