FYI pre-order will be closing most likely after this weekend, so last chance to pick one up at pre-order price.

Pre-order is now closed! Thanks for everyone that ordered, and for anyone waiting out for it to ship I should have a limited number of units shipping at end of October/beginning of November.

Hey guys quick update for all Apollo Batch 1 Pre-orders. Final design is complete and we have all major components ordered/in production currently. ASICs are also in hand and PCB production should start next week.

Unfortunately we got screwed over with Trump China Tarriffs and had to switch out some non critical suppliers which is going to cause a 1-2 week delay from the original end of October start shipment date. We are probably looking first week of November to get the first orders out and all shipments should be done by Mid-Nov.

I'd like to get my hands on one of these if any extra stock becomes available.

Will you have any extra non-preorder to ship on demand in November?

Antminer L3 is only $193 usd @ 504MH/s

https://shop.bitmain.com/product/detail?pid=00020180827100504766ytv57fVV06DA

$254 usd for 140MH or $193 for $500MH....


I have an L3+ and many Moonlander 2s and I'm excited to add an Apollo to supplement my mining capacity. The Apollo and L3+ don't compare on a 1-to-1 basis. The L3+ does hash at a higher rate but it takes a lot more power. I can also attest that 76 decibels is really loud. It does sound like a jet engine.

Been meaning to ask, where in Brooklyn are you?

The address you give is for a nice insta office. Since I don't think they would like you doing prototyping & soldering there I am guessing that you have an assembly place somewhere nearby. I'm on LI in eastern Nassau so even though I chose to have it shipped it might be nice to stop over and talk one day. That is, if either one of us can ever find that mythical thing called "free time".

Is this still the schedule?

building Nov 1 to Nov 14

shipping after Nov 15


Or have there been more changes?

Yes heatsinks are our bottleneck right now and scheduled to land Nov 9th, so final assembly will be 12-16th and hope to get the first orders out by the end of that week.

Quick update in this thread:

We are shipping out units as I write this....we screwed up with checkout and should have collected phone numbers for all order since we are shipping mostly fedex.

If you are waiting for a pre-order and did not include your number in your order (check order confirmation email), PLEASE reply to that email with your phone number ASAP.

Thanks!
