Can I buy using bitcoins? Well this is interesting. Also can I sell the shares back?
Yes you can pay in Bitcoins.

We do allow you to sell your shares to other users if you really wanted to but they purchaser would need to pay a 0.75% fee for the exchange.


That fee is for an exchange of your share or shares to another person, where the new person pays the exchange fee (since we can't force the orig. buyer to send us BTC if they bailed with the buy out funds). Hopefully, the new buyer won't be blindsided by this fact, as that's not right to sell a share without giving them this info.

We're GB Coordinators, we're not an exchange, and to handle tons of exchange requests doesn't add any value to the GB that we work hard to build, and  would slow us down from our primary goal of providing some of the world's best values to as many people as we can.

As for pre-orders, we offer refunds at a 1.5% restock fee up until the hardware ships.

32 shares are left in R12.

If we oversell, don't worry, we'll fit you into an R13, if necessary.  Grin

R13 will not start directly after R12 is over, there will be a small time period in between R12 closing and R13 opening.

Awesome! Welcome back!

I have an update: some good news, bad news.

Bad: He's still working out the chaining of the miners. This is important because he only has so many Pis. We're also seeing a little under performance as far as hashrate but kano is working on the cgminer chainminer integration so we should see improvements on that. Such is life on the bleeding edge of a bullet run.

Good: Since bobsag3 is basically Good Guy Bob he's going to make sure that to add a board to our 20 board stack to get our min. hashrate to 8.34GH/s as promised while software issues are worked on. He also managed to stack 6 boards, so far, even with the issues he's seeing.

Bobsag's busy as heck but I'll post some pics he shared with me as soon as I upload them to my cloud photos.

===

Also: 26 shares available.


There will be a pause before R13 so that we can let bobsag3 get caught up so that R9-12 are taken care of properly.

Hi stex2009, please see post 2 of any of my Rounds for payment info. We offer a variety of options that a lot of GBCs don't offer.

We take USD but under certain conditions. A service we can recommend is www.cashintocoins, if you're in the US.

I realized that I'm a little bummed that they're underperforming, but sometimes things don't always work out with initial implementations. But on the bright side this was guaranteed to be shipping by Nov. 1 and we're fortunate to have already received it! kano has been shipped a simultaneous shipment so he'll hopefully be able to tweak some improvements while he adds native BA support to chainminer.

Group Buyers are going to be compensated for any under performance of the 8.34 GH/s mark per share that was promised.

So are these miners performing at 8 GHS and not 10 GHS? How will we be compensated?

They promised 8.34 as  min.  So 5%  Rebate?  5% of 123 usd is about 6-7 usd.
or .03btc
 per share.   Of course a day or 2 of tweak and they may run at 8.5 to 9 or 10

Please support sidehack with his new miner project Send to : 1BURGERAXHH6Yi6LRybRJK7ybEm5m5HwTr
I mine alt coins with https://simplemining.net I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.

Sorry if that wasn't clear in the good news/bad news update a few posts up. In my defense, I'm under heavy antibiotics and dealing w/ a sinus infection, so I might not be Englishing the best right now.

Since he's the official BA US Reseller, he has extra boards. For underperformance: he'll add a 21st board to the chain in order to get to that minimum 8.34 GH/s hashrate. He's not going to leave you out to dry. We're not you-know-who: those two companies which shouldn't be spoken of IMO.  Tongue

He was getting within 10% of the advertised rate with his latest update.

A good sized shipment of Pis are also due in today and is out for delivery.

Thanks for the response...much appreciated.  I'm pretty new to buying GHS - anyway we can see how the miners are hashing, like online? How frequently are the payments made?  I'm pretty noob..if all of this is in a FAQ somewhere...can someone just point me in the right direction?

yes, I bought 10 shares as a trial run. Smiley
I'm assuming we can see the machines hash once they're up and running? You may have covered this before, there's just a few threads.

Gents and ladies, a Saturday, 11/2 update:

- Bob's been having problems chaining the miners beyond a certain point which has limited his ability to stack miners as he only has so many Pis to go around. He seems to have gotten past much of the earlier issues but can't stack more than 6 at the moment (the goal was 10 boards per Pi)
- He's blown a few Pis and a couple of PSUs during his testing.
- He's currently up to almost 1 TH (our target is 3.2 - 4 TH, combined from all 4 Rounds
- He's currently short Pis due to them failing,and his overnight shipment of a bunch of extras from Amazon is stuck at UPS till Monday
- We've learned a lot too: Bullet Runs can be messy, best to have waaay more supplies than you think you needed

- Because I promised optimistically that the boards would be running by now, we're going to make up the hashrate difference based on the following schedule:

Rounds 9/10 should be up to 1TH today, the target is 1.68 - 2TH/s: This pool has just started mining, but there's no dashboards set up yet. When mining deposits appear they're heading to this Black Arrow Bullet Run wallet address: https://blockchain.info/address/1JazVMG7E47ceaTnwbGzeGsrAQeURniwZV

For calculation purposes - Since yesterday, Nov.1, for daily coins expected to be mined I'll be using www.bitcoinx.com as a calculator for lost hashrate compensation calculations unless someone else has a better suggestion.

Rounds 11/12 should be running by the end of the day in Missouri by Monday evening: If hashrate is less than the promised 1.68 TH/s for R11/12 by Tuesday morning, then the same calculations listed above for lost hashrate calculations still apply.


===============================================================================================================


We'd rather take a small hit and keep our co-op members happy, then to have upset co-op members due to the delays. With this in mind, Bobsag3 is adding 3 extra boards per GB (instead of 1 extra) in order to improve hashrate and make up for lost mining power for each Group Buy Round.

If this extra hashrate still doesn't compensate for lost time/hashrate at the end of the mining period, then bobsag3 and the DZ MC will be compensating you directly.

Thanks for putting a forum name to the order! Thank you and welcome aboard!

We'll def. have dashboards running, but please give us some time. Our priority is getting everything hashing first as quickly as possible before we do all the fun, extra stuff.

==

I need Thomas to confirm numbers but I believe we're down to 15 shares available.
