They stopped providing any updates in Discord either. There are no updates. As a matter of fact, with the current crypto market, it became irrelevant. Time to accept the reality.

When you say it like that it sounds like you joined crypto in late 2017, just to make some ez money.

The reality is that we will first see a bounce again near the next btc halving i said this for a long time, 1-2 months ago i was in the mineyourbiz discord and ppl was still buying gpu's, and i told them be carefull, you buying gpu's means we didnt hit the bottom yet.

Im still waiting for my acorn but it will most likely never mine anything, but be used as base for learning vhdl. You always buy stuff like this with a second plan, thats why i never been a fan of asics there is only 1 use.

Smart man. Those without backup plans are the ones you hear crying all day on BCT. Cheesy

To be honest with you, I past the stage of really expecting to learn anything new, as far as hardware is concerned. I retired in 2017 from a high-tech job and I indeed am mostly interested in earning easy money. I am just investing and trading stocks now and although I will play a bit with Acorn or an FPGA, I do not expect to do any real (programming) work. The fascination with technology is slowly becoming the thing of the past for me. I simply do not have time for it.

To be hornest with you, for me it will most likely also sit on the shelf collecting dust half a year, untill i get the time to write something cool during the winter months, like an java accelerator or soemthing else like that on it.
But i sure hope I will never stop being facinated by new hardware Cheesy

What more than likely ruins it for most I know it does for me is the slow down that happens once huge breakthroughs occur.  Soon as that happens companies go into profit mode.  How can I maximize my profits.  Then we see small upgrades that last ten years when we could have went straight to the breakthrough.  This monetization of everything is what ruins it.  We are never allowed to go at our speed.  Money always holds us back. Whether you see it or not.Direct or indirect it’s always rearing its ugly head.

I just stumbled across this.  I can't wait to pick a couple of the M2 boards up and test them out.  It's great to see people trying out new things in cryptospace.  Now if prices start to go back up again that would be great.

I placed an order for a pair of 215+'s back on 7/13 (order #290).

On 9/1 I received an email about August orders being delayed until mid September.

http://squirrelsresearch.com/preorder-update/

That was 21 days ago.  No updates since, no new updates on their web site either.

Has there been anything on Discord?

It’s those reasons outlined in his link that this system will fail. Certain parts can be hoarded. Again how can this ever be decentralized when those with the money already have the systems in place to take this over. (Supply manufacturers)  Naive group for being the best of the best.  I’m just trying to help ya see just a little flicker of light to where this will head. BR

I really do hope this doesn't turn out to be a scam in the end. I've had my doubts about these squirrels but so far they have presented a communicative and professional front. As to why there is suddenly no updates is really disturbing.

I hope you guys get some updates soon.

Or on their own website, or send something out to those who signed up for updates, or those who have already purchased but have not heard a peep since we were told shipping would take place mid September.  I know shit happens and dates slip, but do take like the 5 minutes to provide an update, say every 15 days past your expected target dates.  This is like customer service 101.

From the SQRL Update channel on Discord for those that do not follow. Dated 9/24.

GPUHoarderYesterday at 9:56 AM
Acorn Update: We still have not received our fans and heatsinks for final assembly, other than one tray of samples. We were able to confirm they shipped and are in customs, but have only been given a typical time it takes for them to clear. We have located a source for the Nest chips Broadcom wasn’t able to provide as ordered, and expect those to arrive this week to begin assembly. As soon as completed units are available we will begin shipping. At this time the supplier estimates we received have been inaccurate, so I can’t provide an exact date until components are all in our hands. Thank you for your patience.
