Hello!

I am compiling a list of ASIC distributors and would love some feedback.  So far we've included the Canaan Creative NA distributors which includes BlokForge and MinerWarez.

Who else in North America should I include?  Looking for companies with a proven record of shipping products.  If you know of a company (or are affiliated yourself) please let me know.  If you want to shoot me a private DM, that works, too.

Cheers.

Holybitcoin used to sell lots of SHA256 ASICs and they still do, though their S9s and R4s are OOS and they're currently sold out of Gekkoscience 2Pacs. I bought an SP20 from them about 1 1/2 years ago, and it's been hashing flawlessly until I shut it down a couple months ago, and Scott (site owner) is active for support almost all the time.

Deep In The Mines and Parallelminer.com are legit web shops too.


And ASICPuppy.net


And also of course Myrig.com, but I'm not sure if they are shipping the goods from the US or outside like Hong Kong for example.

In regards to proven record of shipping, MinerWarez held onto numerous paid orders after delays, and then held onto refunds as well until the price tumbled several thousand.

I personally haven't had any issues with Blokforge, they even gave out a coupon to all their customers recently, but they and Canaan did just lower the acceptable operating temperature range from 40C to 30C without any notification, explanation or email.

I have ordered via Amazon from CryptoCrane for many years and haven't had any issues, though you will pay a slight premium over ordering direct.


Thanks HagssFIN, I didn't know about ASICPuppy or Deep In The Mines

CryptoCrane’s a member on the forums (link here). They’re also available at their website, eBay store, and Amazon store for anybody looking to get to them. There’s another website that I know that also sells bitcoin mining hardware (based in California or Washington) but I haven’t seen them in a long time and I can’t remember the name. If I do, I’ll change this post.

Thank you all for the input, I appreciate it.  I'm not sure why I forgot about Parallelminer, as I ordered power adapters from them recently.

How did you hear about the drop in operating temperature from Canaan?  We run ours at around 35c, so this is news to me too.  Let me know.

Thanks again!

I was about to purchase an 841 and noticed it said 30C on the website, and did a double take on the Canaan website to verify that indeed it is now 30C instead of 40C.
Checked the 821 which I knew 100% was 40C just a few days ago as I was showing it to a friend, and that too is now listed at 30C.
Posted about it on Blokforge's forum post, but it was deleted.  Was honestly just curious about it before buying more from them but now they are not within range for myself or any business friends.

Thanks for that.  I'll keep my eyes peeled for updates on that.
