Well this thread/product is no different from BFL approaches, he posted here actively for the first few pages and since then nothing from the OP. If this product was meant to be released surely he would want to keep it active regarding development and what not?

Actually, it's hugely different. BFL took full payment upfront and delayed shipment for months. For largecoin, according to the OP, only 15% of the price is held in escrow. Better than that, you get to have the product for a full month before paying the remaining price.

When you receive the unit and connect it to the network, you will be granted a temporary mining license enabling the system to mine for a period of 30 days. When we receive the balance of your payment, a permanent mining license will be issued to you.

Has anyone else gotten the most recent Largecoin announcement, the survey I mean?  It seems that BFL has partially succeeded in scaring its competitors.

Yeah. All BFL's competitors must be pissed off, unsure whether they should continue developing their own stuff or leave the ship before it sinks.

Who cares. What's the deal with all the competitors focusing on making the units more energy efficient, but doubling the cost? The only way competition is ever gonna gain any ground is when they offer better GH/s per $. Electricity cost is not that important when performance gets that high. The hardware will be obsolete by the time it does matter. I'll take a mini rig any day over this thing. You can't win when your focusing on saving pennies at the cost of dollars.

"Your deposit guarantees that LargeCoin will ship you a C200 IMU by July 31, 2012,"

So did no-one deposit, or what?

Right, Largecoin never got to the stage of requesting deposits from preorderers.

No ongoing communication is required after you have configured the license token; and, if you prefer, you don't have to connect your device to the Internet at all. There will be a way to enter the license token without having it connected to the Internet.

Does this clear up everyone's concerns about DRM?

Then how do I connect to the bitcoin protocol?

Largecoin is not a competitor of BFL.

However, do not worry (as always) there will be lots of competition to fill the cracks that BFL leaves.

I suspect everyone who pre-ordered is under an NDA - which is kind of annoying, as it leaves no public statement (that I'm aware of) as to whether the project is proceeding or not.

I signed an NDA so I can't share any of the details.  But I can make stuff up.  I bought 12 of these for about $68,000 dollars, that's when bitcoins were worth $3.75 each so I got a good deal.  I've been mining with them for about 13 months now.  They actually produce electricity along with the bitcoins so I earn a little extra by selling power back to the utility.  Worked out really well.  In my head at least.

No more f*cking pre-order crap. If you don't have the money to build your sh*t before you try to sell it, then get a loan or find another business. This pre-order bullsh*t is unacceptable.

Pre-order money for this was never collected, and even had it been, it was to be held in escrow, not used for development.

And why are you getting upset about something that happened 9 months ago?

I suspect everyone who pre-ordered is under an NDA - which is kind of annoying, as it leaves no public statement (that I'm aware of) as to whether the project is proceeding or not.
Edit: I agree.

Some NDAs treat the existence of the NDA as part of the information covered by the NDA.
If such an NDA happened to exist for LargeCoin - I wouldn't be able to disclose that fact, if I had signed it.

If such an NDA existed and I had seen it but not signed it - I would be able to and highly likely to disclose that it existed.

I'm not disclosing that such an NDA exists - and I'm not saying why I'm not disclosing that. It's possible that it's because it doesn't exist.

I generally dislike NDAs  - but have been known to sign some of them.


I was unable to purchase any equipment from LargeCoin - but I'm not disclosing the reason, nor am I disclosing why I'm not disclosing the reason. It's possible that it's because I signed an NDA - or not.

Now you're scaring me.

Anyway, I fail to see the logic of this, as the existence of an NDA is not one of the facts whose sharing was conditioned on signing it.

You don't have shit julz. Stop attention whoring.

First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they keep laughing, then they start choking on their laughter, and then they go and catch their breath. Then they start laughing even more.
