Yeah, its this whole propritary "bitstream" thing that turns me off to these for the most part. That and the overhyped and underdelivered software. And I was so close to wanting to believe in this...
Proprietary bitstreams? Wait are you upset about how bitstreams work in general or do you not understand that anyone can release a bitstream for the devices?

once additional reason for getting fpgas was something to learn and possible code for. and as such devices come on line there will be more coders writing bitsteams for them.

i figure in about 10 years i will be good enough to make a led blink on a fpga dev kit.

also gpuhoarder mentioned currently there are not a lot of fpga coders out there. and the money for their time is not worth it for proprietary stuff compared to a 4% dev fee times 5000 bcu, maybe a thousand cvps, and another thousand vcu.

in short, right now its generally more profitable to release for the allmine shell at 4%

I figure that bistreams will end up being sold, it's about that hardware circulation. The more hardware in the hands of users the more that individual bitstream will be in demand. I figure it will be like how Wolf0 sold bins.

agreed. private bitstreams will be for sale, most likely to anyone who wants it. ie no (or very very few) one off totally custom super bitstreams that only large farms will get. those private bitstreams for sale to the general public will be better than the public ones, at least at the start. so depending on the farm loadout it may be worth it. i never had enough gear to make gpu private miners pay off although i never looked into it that much.

A large farm wouldn't run acorns though they would run the larger bcu cards which I think already have those private bitstreams being actively sold. So I think any private bitstreams will be more of a group that buys them and kicks out anyone caught selling or trading them.

The Acorn CLE? Yeah I have a 215+ almost everyone has received theirs I'm pretty sure. The issue is waiting for more bitstreams and the SQRL miner that has the GPU acceleration. Right now we are just waiting

TL;DR
it's available for purchase and in stock but isn't usable.

No rumors of a lawsuit for lack of a miner to be provided. ( I meant mining software )

They had all those acceleration numbers posted in June or July.

They never demo'd an acorn  and no proof that an acorn could do those claims.

I feel lawsuits are coming.

To be fair if the gear can do as claimed maybe ohGodaGirl  fucked him hard and is refusing to give him the software to make it so.

I think she wanted more money for that software he said no and figured they could write it.  So far a real beating to those that purchased the gear.


My thanks to mfurman and his constant attacks on discord I know he is why I bailed out and saved myself 800 usd.

I wonder how many others bailed due to his constant questioning.

Hats off to mfurman!

Hey if ohGodaGirl is holding up the software someone can email me so I will know it is true.

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

I am still positive about the miner release.  But for the performance numbers I have no clue if it would hold up.
The sad thing is all this while status on SQRL miner was -> when Acorns are done and delivered.  Now, it's been a month that's happened and no news on miner just some teasers.  No benefit to early adopters  Grin

What are you going to do if they release it and you find out that the performance numbers are just bogus???

It is why I think that ohGodaGirl  may be the villainess and not squirrels.

But all I am doing is guessing an explanation as to why they don't have software and never proved software works.

I bailed when mfurman asked over and over and over for software and was treated poorly.

kudos to him I hope he got multiple people to bail.

I also hope oHGodaGirl is the villainess and that someone gets new working software for this gear.

Good luck to all of you waiting .

I understand the concept and at least there will be power savings if not hashrate boost.  Optimizations will take time and might lag behind the gpu only miners.


btw quote from discord,

GPUHoarderToday at 19:38
I haven’t been very active in here because it has become troll infected (really? We’ve collected $20+M from people and shipped thousands of products, tried to go above and beyond at every chance we can, but we’re gonna pull a no-show scam at the last minute over a piece of software? For what? Couple hundred thousand in acorn sales? That doesn’t even cover a month of our team’s salary.   Get out of here with that bull*hit. ) progress is good - there was IP involved in SQRL miner that was owned by Mineority, I can’t discuss that in detail (with all the legal action, it makes it really hard to give detailed updates) but I can say I believe that hurdle is cleared. Our favorite silly ZP miner got integrated into SQRL miner today. There are updated Linux drivers and Windows drivers in testing now. There will more updates and releases next week - no shut down here.

It does sound like ohgodagirl was the hold up and legally. That means lawyers and keeping quiet, the hardware and customer service has been excellent, the dude is obviously extremely knowledgeable and skilled, the acceleration is a standard fpga use. I am going to agree with Phil here and think this is a lot of ohgodagirls doing. My understanding from some people in discord was the enlargement pill had private enlargements and not just the public 1080ti, this could have been what she wanted to pull and got a lawyer involved with.

Sad cause I think the owner of squirrels is a good guy.  I think he was sucked in by that damn enlargement pill.

All guess work on my part no facts , but it does fit the picture.

I agree.  A group buy is hard enough to pull off but this turned into a hosting/bitstream/software business...And considering crypto will probably stay low for another year how long can he pay salaries, etc?  Sad as Trump would say. 

edit: Only person that can be trusted is w0lf but I dont know what he is up to, and he didnt seem involved in any way with ohgodagirl's shenanigans.  He doesnt seem active anymore.

When it comes to me.  I am the only one that can be trusted.  Putting trust into another person that also only has their best interest is recipe for failure.  As one can see it play out here. When push comes to shove. Money talks bullshit walks.  Guess it’s time for me to change that back for my quote.  Everyone walking away from crypto that was only here for the money.  And look what’s left lol.  Won’t be shit.  Plus satoshi original vision of pow is flawed when we have unequal resources across the world.  A system built upon greed has only one outcome.  Just like cancer it canabalizes itself.  Don’t be on a sinking ship!

I got mine. It was the CLE-101. With no GPU boost (I guess as a stand alone?) since no support yet , the Acorn runs 150MH/s with the one bitstream available running sorta worthless coin (correct me if Im wrong) Zen Protocol and for reference, the GTX 1070 Ti FTW2 I have in my gaming rig runs 890+ MH/s running CCminer
