Recoup is necessary with this gear; the case / psu's alone cost ~10k. 

You will NOT see a 25k SP50 anytime soon. 

Why do you think an NDA is required? If the pricing was competitive it would be public.

50k with 5 MOQ; 40k with 20 MOQ is an "estimate" for SP50 costs and MOQ.

SP40 ~11 TH in a 3U case only if USD/BTC exchange rate exceeds $300 and remains so for 1 week.



I tend to agree with much of what you posted. I am however perplexed by the "NDA for Price/Date" information. Assuming you are correct, what's the motivation? How does that help Spondoolies, or the signer of the NDA? Is this not really intended for potential customers, but perhaps investors?

This feels a bit like the SFARDS "announcement", but never answered any of relevant questions for price or date included.

Depending on what your are doing NDA's are pretty common with mining companies.  Each one want's to know the others progress, price, etc.   So if you were a big buyer and they gave you more information then is public a NDA would not surprise me at all.

So basically it helps SP keep their information secret.   The signer gets more confidential information by signing.  There are a lot of variables in NDA's though so it's hard to say on a lot about it.

My point is that if the SP50 pricing was competitive it would have been included in the announcement. 

This is like bluffing in poker.  If I am about to buy 22x or more S7 and then SPT says they have a superior product I will be significantly less likely to buy the S7's.  Even if I bother to contact SPT, wait for them to respond, and sign an NDA; only to finally laugh at the SP50 price: SPT has still delayed my purchase from their competitor.

My guess is that the SP50 is only really intended for internal mining, and announcing it like they did was to stall for time while they get the SP40 ready / deploy their own SP50's with less S7 hashrate resistance. 

I would be willing to pay 4k for an 11 TH SP40 if it is released soon; but my guess is it would cost ~5k so let's hope for a USD / BTC pump and maybe we will see an SP40.

Are you serious, do you work or have any experience in vertical industries, it's very common and not a read on weather it's competitive or not..

Keeping other details under NDA isn't uncommon, but prices are NOT normally an NDA type piece of information.


 As far as those speculating on a "SP40" or similar - as I recall SPT has already said it's not happening, they've shifted to making miners for their own datacenters and large customers (or words to that effect).

I'm no longer legendary just in my own mind!

NDA are used so the people who "work" for BTCS keep quite.
Because they are a public company stock ticker " BTCS "
I am sure all the people who work at BTCS " transaction verification services" had to sign in blood.

But hell what do I know. Right padrino  Wink

The large customers will come first no doubt.  But eventually if they are making rack miners again (little smaller then SP50).  I don't see a problem selling a product meant for a data center to a hobby miner (not a home miner with 110/120).   Think upgraded SP30 series.   This could have big data center clients and also if pumping out possibly hobby miners.  But that is a wish that might not happen.

As far as NDA its very common, as everyone wants to keep it secret what they have in R/D and costs, etc.  I expect all SP50 clients for a while to have NDA's on price, and chances are it varies a good bit on how many you buy.

Just caught this post, maybe not blood but something real close Smiley

I have a whole stack of NDAs, each and every one on the front page of hardware now that I think about it...  When negotiating prices, lead-time (which feeds speculation on supply chain, yield challenges, etc.), for larger customers no company is interested in having those details spread around given it's competition sensitive...

"Ready to accept SP50's, I assume they should be off the assembly line."

Well that answers some of our questions: SP50s are actively being produced, the pictures weren't renderings, queue up now for hash rate.

Spondoolies sales are not answering our request about bulk purchase and pricing.  We would even sign an NDA if needed, but no response is worrisome.

well if they are like other data hall folk they 'announce' product to get more hype and IPO $$$ for the data hall projects...they then fill data hall first with 1st run of product
they then MAYBE sell large bulk orders to others (depending on how much is left and/or how deep in the development hole they are $$$ wise and want up front money back) or they could just decide to keep and mine all the toys like knc does

many options for them fewer for us imho (not a slam ..just saying bulk orders are probably down on the time line more then a ways Smiley

you dont drop several hundred thousand (maybe a million+?) on racks, cooling, and transformers unless you have a near-term plan to use them (and BTCS=SP-Tech, so be sure they are gonna be the first)

thats what they have in the second hall, 225kVa (208V i presume) UPS systems. Point me to any other mining facility (besides  legit datacenters/colocations) that use these to prevent electrical downtime

24" PCI-E cables with 16AWG wires and stripped ends - great for server PSU mods, best prices https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=563461 also selling 6" M-F-M PCIe splitters and PCIe-PCIe

One would be crazy to put mining gear on UPS. You put that in when your servers hold critical processes .. and servers do not take as much power.

IMHO mining is not critical as long as the units restart automatically or when triggered remote. And most of the units do with only some smart PDUs.

Must be all of the threads with people that have done it that tells you it's crazy? Depending on the deployment scenario and power source (e.g., elec rate management, solar) it can make sense, limited but there are deployment scenarios in which it can...
