Those interested in the realistic future of GPU mining support by Acorn should probably read some comments by one of the developers (unrelated to SQRL), on Discord, starting 10:03 on Feb 13


They should be posting that here shit here as this is the place they came to shill their crap in the first place.
I'd also like more information brought to Bitcointalk but for some reason a majority of FPGA stays away from Bitcointalk. I'm not sure why but I'd like it to be a major area on here.

Taking no sides  but fpga discord has some squirrel channels.

Frankly  they are very protective of what has become a big f-up with the acorns.

I would say this I would not want to be the mods for fpga  since it means I end up protecting  the acorn channel
If I modded on discord I would not do so for the acorn channel.
I would be looking to be fully and completely not involved with acorn as a protector of them.  
Since discord is allowing sql-acorn to have a thread/section.
Since the mods protect the section
Since acorns look worse and worse as time goes on
I would want zero involvement with them.
My fear as a mod on discord would be if sql-acorn is sued I would be named

Lucky for me  sqls-acorn  told me last year we don't need or want any help from you.
It is here in this thread way back. That they wanted no escrow from me or any help in any way.

To all that are burnt good money I wish you luck in recovering it. Soon Roll Eyes

phill,  I offered them the same help....and I was also told the same thing.....


glad they did.  saved me a lot of grief  Grin



below is one of the reasons I stopped.  Newbies attack with misstatements



phillipma can you stop with the virtue signaling and dead horse beating? We know....you're sooper smartz for getting out and "wanting nothing to do with SQRL"....yet youre in here almost every day with something to say about them. Im not happy with how things tuned out either but shit or get off the pot m8.

I did 18 posts here in 91 days.

If it were not for mfurman I would have lost 800 dollars.

I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.

Few months ago bought a X470 mobo to fit 2 acorns on (and use them with 4 RX574), fed up with the wait I'll use a slot for a 1TB SSD. I'm happy the shipping rates and crpyto only payment stopped me from puchasing this vaporware.

Honestly I think it's more just the legal issues still being hashed out which unfortunately can take their time. I was part of a start up myself and I spent more than my fair share in a law office and everyone is out to get cash and a part of any revenue you have.

Whatever the issue is, they ought to tell their buyers right away and not keep saying "soon".

They are at least 7 months behind Schedule, in the crypto area it's a lifetime.

Justice/truth fears no observer.  Of course they need to be in self modded chats.  For obvious reasons.  Snake oil sales men unite!

This company Ponzi has become the 3D Realms of cryptocurrency hardware.  

Making vaporware with a Release Date: When it's Done.  



At least 3D Realms did show they could produce legit games prior to the 11 year development run of Duke Nukem Forever that was ultimately a flop.

There is no back history of SQRL showing they produced anything substantial.

received my upgrade 215+ for my 101 yesterday.

it comes with a prepaid shipping label, just toss the 101 in it and mail it back. there is no deposit or anything, they just trust you to mail back the 101. my 101 was modded too as i had thermal epoxied an additional heatsink the the voltage regulator. they said that was fine.

so, my cost to upgrade a single 101 to a 215+, shipped to the USA, was $55. $35 for the upgrade, $20 for shipping, and that $20 covers shipping both ways.

i gather those in other countries have far higher shipping costs and are not happy. there are ideas being floated about setting up central points in some countries to ship the acorns back to for cheaper. dunno how thats panning out though.

also, the acorn warranty does not start till the miner comes out. so, looks forever warranties right now.

At least when we resell these paper weights on Craigslist or ebay we can include "Under Warranty" in the listing.

It's still an artix-7 200t, nothing can change that, and that is still worth something to somebody.

It's April 1st and there is still no miner.  The Joke is on us at this point. 

Here's a summary of what's happened this weekend.   Roll Eyes

A sucker customer realize it was a ruse.  Followed by a fanboy coming to the defense.  Grin

More BS from GPUHoarder that gets quickly figured out as a ruse which prompts more kiss-ass fanboys to the defense.

So in other words GPUHoarder is like the immortal 'Bad Place' Shawn (from The Good Place).

You're upset that your own fake release date didn't make it? Cool.

^
you don't get it, the SQRL Miner software is a joke.

I said April 1st back in January as a joke, thinking surely it would be released sooner than that.    It is now April 1st and we are no further than we were 4-5 months ago.

Well it all depends on what you believe, if you believe the remnants of mineority and sqrl then there's a patent dispute, a work around in development. I think everyone can agree that if you are buying for only GPU Acceleration, wait. If you have already bought and aren't looking to wait any longer, then sell.

I am just wondering how would you plan on selling?  
Would you disclose all the info available about the hw/sw; that the only thing you can do with the $300 hw you've is mine zp which will make you $3-$5 or would you just advertise here's a $300 hw.  
and you can accelerate GPU hashrate with it once miner is released?

If you're the buyer would you buy it from the seller who tells you that?

Waiting for godot !

I think the acceleration for more than one low-end-gpu, never will work with a acorn.

Interesting to see that this is actually going nowhere. On the Discord I asked a simple question a few months ago about publishing some Benchmark results.
The guys responded with really idiotic answers like, it`s hardware configuration dependant bla bla... but yet no one could post any results even the developers....

I feel for the guys who spent their $ on product that has no backing results or even working product after several months.
Question everyone is asking, how do you develop hardware, advertise it, ship it, and there was no way to even test if actually works. Fishy isn't it?

This project turned out to be one big joke, i feel ashamed that i supported it, GPUHoarder has become a crying child, no shit people are mad after waiting almost a year, live with it, you cant start crying about it when you havent given people what they paied for. Im happy i got rid of my cle 215's, but i guess ill always have my 2 cle101 on the desk reminding me not to buy shit from new starters.

Just my 2 satoshis.

Just my 2 satoshis.

as an owner of 3 acorns and a couple nests, i cant say im pleased with whats happened. however progress is being made. another stand alone miner for acorns has been released, tribus. this one is a lot more polished. and more stand alone miners are planned.

as for gpu assist, seems ip rights are a part of the delay for the gpu assist miner.

it has been mentioned that stand alone miners will be much more prominent than originally anticipated. partly because of lost opportunity, and partly due to the overall price of crypto. the gpu assist miner is still on for release once the ip rights are figured out.

again i cant say im happy, but i knew the risks when i ordered. as in, i put in an amount i was fine with losing and kissed that money goodbye. if it works out, great. if not, my fault for backing the wrong horse..

however the market seems to be recovering, so there is a slight chance they may actually roi. which would e nice.

anyone considering ordering acorns i of course suggest waiting.

  what is tribus a coin or a miner software name?

I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.
