Do you think there is gonna be any use for all those useless asics? can it be hacked to do something else?


Basically in EU is a law where you can return stuff and ask money back (in case knc you pay VAT which means they can paly dead birth), in my case mercury stop mining after 20min is just waisting of electricity the firmware do not solve the problem

Or better yet, tell them you are not satisfied with their product (find some reason) and want a full refund.
Don't open the box, just spill some water on it.

Just sold my jalapeño for more money so not my problem anymore Smiley

Isn't it funny how BFL screws us ... we then transition that screw job onto other people?

Greed just feeds more greed.  What you did is on a very small scale compared to what BFL did to its customers.  Putting that in perspective leaves me with no doubt in my mind that BFL was pulling all sorts of shit.  probably in ways we haven't even considered yet.



Not even remotely similar to what BFL did. BFL lied about delivery dates, delayed, delayed, delayed, delayed. Then stopped allowing refunds once they realized people were about to request refunds en mass.

What I did doesn't even compare to what BFL did. First of all. I published my Jalapeno on eBay with all the specs. I published it as soon as I received the shipment notification and I posted the tracking number so people knew it was coming and it was going to be IN HAND at the time the auction ended.
I posted a photo of the box as soon as I received it in the mail. so I updated the auction with up to date information.
I didn't even open the box, I wasn't even curious.
I paid 3.x BTC for it (I bought it in march when bitcoin was like $47! so, I guess at current prices, I lost money but to be fair, I paid 160 and sold it for 400 fiat so whatever... you decide if I lost money or I made money..
how was I deceiving when I didn't force ANYONE to buy my product, when I advertised and I delivered in promised time. (shipped priority and it was shipped the next day the winner paid).
Anyways, I don't see how I screwed anyone else. Maybe the person who bought it wanted the chips to learn how to build his/her own miner, I don't know what people do with ASICS these days, especially slow ones like the Jala...
Again, not my problem anymore... it was a bad investment and I got rid of it as soon as I could!

The more efficient ASICs aren't going to be obsolete in a few months at least not in low power cost areas.  What is going to obsolete a 0.8 J/GH miner ... someone buying another 0.8 J/GH miner?  Why would they if it is obsolete?  If they don't how did the first one become obsolete.

For difficulty to go up someone has to be deploying hardware. Now the BFL 65nm stuff, ASICMiner, Avalon, etc yeah that is likely going into the trash in 2014 but I say it is more like summer 2014.  It will get traded from people with high power (who should never have considered mining to begin with) to those with low power and then from their to the trash heap.
