I think we had a survey of failed SP-tech kit that showed failures were extremely rare. They occur, sure but its not like you can just say the above dogie without a caveat.
That wasn't a real survey or any measure of failed equipment, that was Guy paying for a list of frilly questions like:
  • Is the most trusted?
  • Has the best firmware?
  • Has the best support?
  • Cares most about its customers? [lol]
  • Is the most professional and pays its debts?
  • Would you buy from next
  • Gives value for money
  • Hardware performs to your satisfaction

Other reasons why don't get as many failed reports as you otherwise would:
  • When you have a problem you email Zvi, who emails internally to order a replacement. There is just no fixing those things once they go bad so no point posting.
  • 20-40x less individual customers than Bitmain (which you're comparing them to) so even with the same failure rate you get 20-40x fewer reports.


Who did Guy pay for this?

Transaction fees go to the pools and the pools decide to pay them to the miners. Anything else, including off-chain solutions are stealing and not the way Bitcoin was intended to function.
Make the block size set by the pool. Pool = miners and they get the choice.

**sigh**

Every time I come to this or most other hardware threads to see if there are any updates/answers I am bombarded with dog poo - it's tiring. Six ugly posts on the last page alone - it's really no surprise that the yap-yapping chiwawa has so many enemies on this forum. I should have kept him on my ignore list when he tried trolling the p2pool thread. Fixed now though:



Nice trust rating btw.........

That still requires the other party to pick it up when they refuse or avoid it in the first place.

Why don't you roll up at their doorstep with one of your fake ID's (not a shitty council one though) & hand it to them personally like you tried with your TAX friend pekatete? I'm sure they will take you seriously........ Cheesy:



Dogie, or should I say Adam AllCock:

I'm sure I speak for many other readers of this thread when I say that I sincerely don't give a shit about whatever your beef is with Spondoolies. However, if you feel you have been scammed/hard done by/mislead or whatever by Spondoolies I suggest you open a scam thread in the appropriate section & make your case there like everyone else does & forum rules require. That way you can continue your vitriolic, imbecilic & cry baby "waffle" & we can all ignore it in peace. Everyone here already knows that Bitmain got rid of you because of your terrible attitude towards their customers & forum members in general, change the record FFS.

The fact that Spondoolies are not deleting your putrid posts here tells me that you are not only wrong, but that they want everyone to see that you are wrong. Your behavior is appalling & embarrassing only to yourself. The worst thing about it is that you can actually be helpful to forum members when you want to be (or when there's money involved), you seem to go from one extreme to the other - schizophrenic almost.

Be nice, follow the forum rules, stop talking FUD & STFU.

what are we discussing here legendary DOG ?
Don't feed the trolls, just ignore them.

is there no update on sp50 ? no more specs still.
No, nothing.

Must be that complete lack of information on their site, pointed at during the initial announcement..

I am still hoping Guy will slip some pics and numbers to us from a warehouse full of SP50s.

I do not believe Dogie has the beef he states he does. I think he has exaggerated the situation and if anything probably took advantage of Spondoolies. Dogie has defended bitmain when bitmain is wrong so many times it has become a blatant obvious trolling type of situation. But, hey, whatever he thinks he needs to do to get demo equipment. Although, I would think how bad it must suck to know your livelihood depends on how much you sell your soul to mash the truth like mashed potatoes.
I also put dogie on ignore. I did such about a week ago. It is really the only way to fly. I wish I'd done such so long ago. I also retract anything nice I may have ever said because the continuing waffle, the continuing to give people bad advice, and in general bad knowledge the crap hound passes around had gotten to be a bit too much for me to "manually" ignore. This is a much better forum experience.

Yeah, more numbers would definitely be appreciated - especially a price guide  Wink

Regarding the mutt - it was my mistake for un-ignoring him a few weeks ago. Browsing the forum became instantly irritating, to the point where I lost my patience above. Now all I see is a wall of red warnings everywhere again - definitely a much better experience, as you say. Lesson learned I suppose  Wink Grin

So you're not going to back up your claim about SP3x's reliability.  Noted.

Highly customised and complicated controllers are a bad idea when you
   a) want them to be as cheap as possible and
   b) want them not to take down your money printer

The SPXX controllers all fail on both counts. You can believe what you want, I'm not going to waste my time or anyone elses arguing with you.


the problem with the sp-20 controller is simple if it fails  you can not piggy back 2 sp-20's.

no matter what else is true or false this is  a problem.


And while dogie and I have knocked heads  I agree with  that I don't like the sp-tech gear for this one reason.

The avalon 4.1 can run on a cheap rasp pi  I ran 3 for months  you could run 5 stable easy  so this means a cheap easy to replace controller on hand ready to go.

The ant miner s-7 can run 9 boards  so if you have 2 s-7's and the controller fails you have backup if you ordered spare long cables from france.   see link:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1173573.0



as far as I can see if the sp50 controller fails you are down 110th  for days.  no proof otherwise.

I mine alt coins with https://simplemining.net...
I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.

I was asked about it multiple times several pages back, now the trolls (+ the guy with 20 accounts) keep reposting it. And it does relate to Spondoolies-Tech as their ability to pay their debts is relevant to their ability to fulfil customer orders - or if they should be trusted in the first place. You wouldn't say that BFL owed orders shouldn't go in the BFL thread.

I agree with you dogie, your claim is relevant to the thread.  I believe your claim against Guy and SPT.  I really don't believe you would make false claims against them at all.  I have your back on this one and I appreciate all you have done and continue to do for the community.

People should not blindly trust the leader of a company just because they like some of their gear.  I frankly did not appreciate them identifying the SP20 as a 1.7 TH +/- 5% or 10% rig.  I don't remember whether it was 5 or 10 percent.  Bitmain, has better quality gear in my opinion.  Yes, SPT did have a better and faster user interface at the time.  However, BITMAIN, has come around to having one just as fast now.

I agree fully. I think Spondoolies painted themselves into a corner. And now they struggle to explain to their new partners why they should use their new money to pay some debt they never told them about.

Let's keep in mind that the root cause of this argument seems to be that dogie didn't give them the rating they wanted.

Quite honestly I don't feel like that was the reason they didn't pay in the first place, but it was certainly the reason / excuse they used to kick me out of the system, denounce me from bitcoin and to not play nice. At the same time, Guy claims that the reason they got a "low" rating was because they didn't pay, so its not cool either way. The whole thing is a shame.

On another note, is there any word on prices? I was hoping they would have a price guide out by now, but couldn't wait any longer so ended up ordering from bitmain - which hurt a bit, they're not cheap......I'm really interested to know how much these things will be, so I can kick myself......lol

I cannot speak for anyone else but for me, I am actually interested in hearing or discussing things relative to spondoolies new miner, regardless of anyone elses problem with them.

I believe most people know there are not any intentions of selling to home miners. Guy made that very clear a while ago in this thread. That doesn't mean someone has to be under NDA. Did Spondoolies state such somewhere? Please reference such with a link to a credible source.

I speculate there will be a used market, and that is how some people will get these in their garage or business.
I did not have a bad experience with Spondoolies and I believe there are many others who have and continue to support them. Obviously it would be nice if they continued to sell to individuals, but I do not believe many individuals would purchase an SP50 to throw in their basement, albeit there are some dedicated folks who would do so. I certainly have a place for one if I hear of it going on the used market or after SPtech fill their hall.

I also do not see a reason they couldn't start selling smaller units again in the future. I can see why they would rather sell B2B. More volume, less headache, and certainly overall less BS to deal with from people who have recently been posting.
I will let my sig speak to anything relative to off topic subjects.

Have a great day people, and I'm sure SPT cannot wait to read your words of support for scumbags. Please do not let them down.

I hope that they will be able to overcome the issues while not alienating themselves from the community and those that in good faith keep the community safe from scams.
However the market has changed from the early days in that we have 4th and 5th generation hardware from brand names that have proven successful thus far.
Success will be those who take the time to support hardware development for both their company and community benefit. That fine line has proven challenging for some.

It is a fine line to not be overburdened with the business of enticing new financial investment from the traditional avenues while not alienating the existing client base and outspoken constructive critique.

My point is that no manufacturer to date has been perfect at keeping business interests and community interests in balance. Is this a byproduct of outside investors influence overshadowing the importance that the community plays. Or the actions of a few vocal minority for their own agendas.

The reality is that we need people that are capable and willing to overcome setbacks while the members of the community keep report facts while not being burdensome to innovation by reminding everyone of past failings. Setbacks do happen and we must accept that fact or we will run the risk of being left with insular corporations.

That's because these new miners are not meant for home miners, they're being made probably mostly for internal use, with a few shipments going out to some big data center folk.  The SP50 was never intended for individual use or sales, probably one of the reasons they're so hush hush about pricing and such, because ultimately it doesn't matter unless you are in their inner circle.  It's like Ferrari where many of their models are only available for purchase by Ferrari owners that the company personally invites to buy one of their cars.

In my opinion making big ass miners is a mistake as it locks you into technology that is prone to be bypassed in a relatively short order.
making the boards replaceable only partly solves it since what are you going to do with older boards, unless you have a Sp40 frame where you can stick them in and potentially sell to the public as used goods.
I wonder if the chinese company that announced a 14/16 nm miner is for real or not. I am quite skeptical, but if it is real, SPT/BMT will have their hands full competing.

yes, but this cannot work with a bitcoin miner, no matter how efficient it is, because it is not a relatively unique item like Ferrari or Lamborghini.
If you make it an exclusive, the rejected party could just buy bitcoin instead of messing around with miners. No such thing with F/L.
