Nice, we try to stay current as much as possible with production. Gekko seems to stay steady grinding out units. Wink

It is a common myth that Bitcoin is ruled by a majority of miners. This is not true. Bitcoin miners "vote" on the ordering of transactions, but that's all they do. They can't vote to change the network rules.

Right now we're packing up the shop. The last units built in our current location are currently on the tester and will be dispatched to a reseller next week. The first truckload of tools and materials rolls out in the morning.

Good news is, stuff for the next batch is already on order. Most of it's already here. Production will start in the new shop not long after Thanksgiving. I recently redesigned the PCB so the new batch units will be quicker to assemble and quicker to test and verify, so that's good for you guys.

Cool, quiet and up to 1TH pod miner, on sale now!

Thank goodness, hopefully the new products can be out in new shop.

@sidehack

Thanks to Eyeboot, I finally received a perfectly working Terminus R606! It’s nice and very quiet running at 700GH/s +- 100. Now, it’s just very hard looking for a very easy step by step instructions to setup on my Raspberry Pi 4. I’ve looked into pages of forums and I just couldn’t find one...


Also, is there any chance that the R606 is being “upgraded” to work more like the Futurebit Apollo LTC miner?

A full node working within the miner and even with its very own controller and software preinstalled. How about a wifi?

That would be massively beautiful if it could come with those features.Smiley

Any future plans??? Grin

Hey CryNow, We are actively working on a pi4 based control system for the R606/Newpac miners. Nothing complete yet but whe hope to have it out soon... mostly when I find free time.

Those features? No. I don't have much interest in building tiny self-contained computers that also mine. If I get to bigger things than the Terminus there'll be better provision for a "bundled controller" but not for the Terminus series.

Jstefanop can put more R&D time into the complexity of his Futurebit software and hardware because he doesn't also build them, far as I know. Leastways he doesn't do all of it. My stuff is entirely in-house, including board population and metalwork for the heatsinks and housings, so I have to coordinate the production line and build all the tooling as well as the design work, which means keeping things simple. Plus "keep things simple" is a core component of my design philosophy.

Sideways from the main topic, but did you ever consider switching from a miner production to a node production?
Just asking...since node demand is at least steady and maybe increasing due to LN.

No. I build things that I think should exist but don't, and I still believe hobby and home-scale miners should be a thing. If I stop making them, they won't get made.

I do agree very much! With that being said, I have a feeling you’re trying to get your hands on some different algorithms other than sha256 in the future! I’ll be the first one to grab if that’s the case:P

And with what I said earlier, I don’t mean a literal controller... I should’ve said “ease of use” and “extra features” rather than specifying them just like futurebit which is extremely user friendly for those non techies. But I don’t mind the way Terminus is built. It is sexy af and it works well no problems on my side.

Again, nope. I don't really care about altcoins so I don't build gear for them.

I'm also a fan of education, so if I can "encourage" people to learn a little bit more about the systems they want to use, rather than doing all the work for them, thereby increasing their overall understanding and hopefully improving general competence, well that's good too.

That's too bad. Just from a production point of view, an FPGA Miner would kill by yourself. At least as a hobby miner in the basement..profit or not... you'd have 'potentially' different algo's made for probably 'dubious' altcoins..but hey..likely you could string this along for a few years like the KNC Titan from a hobby point of view not a making sense profit point of view...

Anyway, just an observation I respect your wishes on such things. (I was my silliness getting a KNC Neptune xfered to a KNC Titan back in the day..because I did not trust the BTC miner to arrive in time to ROI. (I was correct). So figured at least with a scrypt miner I could play with other coins if LTC or other difficulties got out of hand. I was sooooo much braver as a newbie! The kool-aid was strong....I mean $10,181.30 for a KNC Titan Miner (4 cubes!) That was probably about 1/2 a year's income in take-home pay! Now, I can't even buy any kind of dubious miner and can well afford to be stupid! Go figure!

Building an FPGA miner goes way beyond what I currently have the time and desire to do. Building a board with an FPGA on it is fairly trivial, but making the FPGA into a miner requires skills I don't yet have, and making it operate with any reasonably efficient logic implementation would take ten times more of those skills.

If you want alts, talk to FutureBit.

Yeah, I was just working from my previous KNC Titan Scrypt Miner angle for getting by as a home miner with legit $$ of some sort vs pure hobby...as that worked back in the day for various scrypt coin alts...in that did not want all my eggs in a BTC miner that will be blown up difficulty wise with possibility of NO ROI at all.....that angle may just be all beanie baby with the weak-ass FPGA coins available....anyway...was a thought.
