for those of you in the US, are you opting for UPS or DHL shipping method?  DHL is cheaper but i'm a little worried about the disclaimer:

Generally, shipping with DHL takes 3-5 days. However, spot custom checks can lead to delays of up to 2 weeks. You will have 7 days to process customs clearance upon arrival in your country. If no action is taken, miners will be returned to the sender and extra costs will have to be covered by the customer.


which is the preferred shipping method in ur experience?
Whoever mines the block which ends up containing your transaction will get its fee.

I used to use UPS all the time but the last few times I used UPS each time they nagged me about paying additional customs fees.  So my last order I switched to DHL.  I think it took an extra day to get here but who knows which batch they will decide to inspect at customs for two weeks.

My opinion is Say No to ASIC and make a hardfork ASAP.

1. Any cryptocurrency, once accept ASIC, will lose the ability to change algo forever.
There is one great crypto. Decred. But shhhh.

It's happening, the idea of decentralization are gone

Let's make Bitmain more powerful than ever, let's forget about tech and such ideas

The real purpose is money, money, money, let's squeeze everything until ends very soon
Gpu don't gurantee decentralisation and in real world less then .1% miner actually cares about tech. It was always about money. This is how you survive and thrive in a capitalist/realist world.

Yes, GPU guarantee decentralization, it worked and it's working

Cryptos are supposed to fight against monetary system, banks etc, not being equal to

We can all buy these units= decentralized.
Bitmain should always keep it to 1 unit per customer, unless they want another fork situation to happen. I think they have learned from their mistake.

These things are still for sale.  Surely even at 1 per account they must have sold more than 5k of them by now.

Thats not true! Only Shop buyers can only buy one, if you have an direkt contact to an Bitmain key account manager you can order as much you can pay ;-)

I was suspicious when I noticed the substantial swings of hash rates on the Equihash coins in the last few weeks. Now the fear has become reality.

Not to sound apocalyptic, but you can see the similar swings on whattomine for NeoScrypt coins today. GoByte dropped 32% of its hashrate. 75% for Innova. 32% for TrezaCoin. 50% for CrowdCoin.

Looks like someone has done beta testing on NeoScrypt ASICs and quietly pulling them off the network, on the day of Z9 announcement?

This is pretty much the beginning of the end for Equihash GPU mining.

U sure dhl is slower? i have never heard of this.

Selling 100 dollar coupons (8units expire 11th June, 14 units expire 1st july) and 125 dollar coupon (2 unit exp 30th June). Selling at 20% of value

as they are already hashing... it's just that bitmain is ressource limited (energy, space, legislation). If you are a cheap efficient energy area and bitmain or it's affiliate arrives and suck all the juice, there will not be enough bitmain workers to defend against the locals, specially as bitmain farm will be the last place light up Smiley.

Looks like most of my transaction went here: https://www.blocktrail.com/BTC/address/1GyT8JDvh5cTpsLTXbGtgNjiEgzAfoJpWf/transactions


bitmain has more miners than just these for sale right now though so you can't be certain every transaction is for a Z9.

this is a great machine, low power consumption for home mining, great hash rate per $.

If your serious about mining sell your gpus and give them back to gamers.  2 year roi with gpu mining is a waste of everyones time. adapt or die

FYI, a good chunk of these may have been online for a few months at least. That means they've already had their effect on DIF. New batches may impact it.

Guys, don't forget that you are all responsibles to make Bitmain more and more powerful

They will building a HUGE farm on US, and you and all miners are screwed, because they will make better and better Asics than ones they selling to trolls, and they will not sell, only whem became obsolete to then

Thanks guys to ruined cryptos
