OMFG shut the fucking zencloud down NOW, can't you morons see there is all sorts of shit going on with user balances. Shut it down, stop all action, audit the fucking database, fire developers, start over.

They won't do anything major with Zencloud.. It's kinda damaged goods in their mind... Once hashbase rolls out it'll replace it... So I assume they don't want to "waste" resources on actually fairly paying people.

What exactly is hashbase and when is the release date?

It's probably going to be linked to btc.com, about time the site started working for them.

"Q4" is the date, which could be any time between now and Dec 31. My guess is December in public alpha test.

So it looks to be a "caching issue". They shut down the Market, finally something I can agree with. I hope withdrawals are disabled too.

I have some coinage there too and that sucks but with everything disabled they at least have a chance to reconcile their shit without another "hacking" scandal and clawbacks and CC charges.

I'm starting to sound like HT, ew.

Seems CEO is under a bit of stress- Self imposed- This is going to be one of your last chances to sell at a good price. Every week its something new with locking accounts and taking BTC back. How the hell are they going to be a middle man between users and large retailers? This is a JOKE

Little survey how many people were banned from  hashtalk for speaking up?

I've been banned at least twice.

Yeah, people have their heads in their ass if they believe this Amazon/Wal-Mart thing. Get real. GAW must sit around laughing at the gullibility of these sheep; I know I do.

I was shadow banned and was told the only way to get that lifted is by Josh or site admin..  Is that true?
if you want to get unbanned, talk to animoesto or cyberlizard, they ar reasonable mods
don't even attempt with GAW_CEO, his head is still inside his butthole

Yep.. Chatted with cyberlizard and I was told only Josh or Hashtalk admin could un shadow ban me.. I am not that interested to get back on and get banned again. I swear some of these posters :Bitcoin Bar" for example are being paid by GAW.. with an "ALL IN" statement and constantly posting about how this is the biggest thing since bitcoin idea was formed. Crazy statements.. What is everyone thinking? This is ly on word of mouth .. WOW..lets all drink some laced koolaide and go to sleep!!

Is there anybody here who knows if what josh is doing even legal?
He keeps comparing taking btc out of accounts with banks, but gaw is no bank. Are there different rules for money and product( i am not sure what to call it)?


He's running it like a bank in he wants you to keep your BTC in your account so when he needs quick he can take it and come up with a BS reason to take.
So withdraw daily, I had no problem with that. I never keep money on exchanges and treat Zen cloud the same.

Except they can make your account negative and then what?

Funny thing is that as far as I've seen they haven't been forcibly converting HPs to cover the negative balances. Surely that would be the most logical thing to do?

So they're not selling new hashlets and therefor hashpoints can't be used for buying stuff, unless you use creditcards, then they happily sell you new hashlets...  Huh

Yes, that about sums it up. Tinfoil version is that they need fresh cash. Thus Market (BTC) and CCs (USD), but not hashpoints.

Acording to them it's a bug they are correcting daily and people affected by negative balance just have to write a ticket.
I personally never had a fee higher than the payout. There were some really bad days on which I got just a few satoshis but that's all.

Somewhat offtopic but contains some irony:

https://zeusminer.com/2014/10/31/progress-update-29102014/

tl;dr: Zeus will not make hardware anymore. Preorders cancelled and refunded or converted to "cloud".

this stinks of a BFL all over again.
this time instead of just not sending out units and then mining with them for XX months. they will now give back your money because they say its 100% safe.
Ok so lets see how many people start asking for refunds. the funny thing is they will give u 2 weeks free mining time if you convert so your telling me in 1 week when u go to sell that convert the price per MH or what not will not be way lower then what your pre order + 2 weeks free mining time is worth ?
screw this im going home..............
im done with this place im going to start to sell all my miners and do something else with my time.
baby sitting a miner and a company is not worth my time
I really hope people do not get burned by this company. I hope the fog clears and everything is good but till then run run run

just keep in mind guys PRIMES always make the most profit.....
ZenCloud always makes the most profit.....


Oh wooops , i'm sorry guys but during this time frame it seems that we cant be the most profitable. But dont u worry about it. we have HASHPOINTS yippie HASHPOINTS.
just think instead of mining BTC and making MONEY. You can now mine a so called no one cares coin that we will make up a price of $0.01 USD thats right 1 PENNY so no matter what happends with BTC price you will always know that 1HP = $0.01USD until we make this HASHPOINTS in to HASHCOINS and then oh my god people you will be soooooo mad you did not jump on the HASHPOINT/HASHCOIN train. I guess you just missed the stop because i dont see you onboard.

^^^^ I love that idea anyone else think thats a great idea for a company lets make a COIN
did BFL not make a coin. why oh why do we have to deal with these companys


I honestly believe GAW pulled a KNC with the VaultBreakers, except they madebit very tempting for everyone to upgrade by inflating the price of the hashlets... then they saw everyone was happy and kept escalating
VaultBreakers have not given signs of life

Some strange happenings in the scrypt ASIC world, and I am wondering how they are related to GAW.

Just got my notice from Zeus that my pre-orders for the Volcano and Gen III blades was canceled.  

At the same time, I have been unable to get bitmaintech to open an order for the L1 despite offering them a quantity of 100-1000 units (would be up to a $500,000 order).  Their response to my inquiry?  Sorry "pick another product".

Meanwhile, the first and still most efficient scrypt asic (the Innosilicon A2) is virtually unavailable except for cheaply built and probably used units that Zoomhash is liquidating (and the one I bought from them was defective).  

And then I remembered Josh (GAW CEO) got into a spate with LightningASIC on this forum.. Josh actually PM'd me here and warned me that he had actual knowledge that Innosilicon was not going to make its A2 chip available to LightningASIC, and that LightningASIC would end up empty handed on its promised line of .28 nm scrypt asics (LA did pull through and deliver ONE unit to me but it was a demo unit and clearly used ..and then LA turned to ATM machines and no longer sell scrypt ASICs so maybe Josh was right in warning me, but how did he know?).

Strange happenings.  Now putting it together with GAW and Zencloud hashlets and I am thinking perhaps paranoid delusions, but WHAT IF ...

<BEGIN RAMPANT SPECULATION>

What if .. GAW decided to corner the market on scrypt ASICs?  GAW would need an awesome pre-order to persuade Bitmaintech, Innosilicon AND Zeus to pull back on their plans to sell the next-gen scrypt ASICs.  An order like that would have to be in the millions of dollars for EACH company.

What if ... GAW decided to sell a virtual miner called hashlets, which were really nothing more than a MASSIVE disguided pre-order?

What if ... by selling hashlets for between $16-49, GAW raised enough money to pre-order ALL of the available future scrypt mining from bitmaintech, innosilicon and zeus?

What if ... GAW used its massive amount of purchasing power from selling hashlets to get exclusive contracts from these three major manufacturers, guaranting that GAW would be the only major player in scrypt mining?

What if ... GAW convinced Zeus to terminate PUBLIC sales of the Gen III blades, while privately taking up all of these sales using revenue from the hashlet sales to buy up the inventory and ensure that there is no gen iii scrypt miner available anywhere except through GAW?

While this is obviously speculation, it seems to explain the recent events and the strange fact that all three companies (Innosilicon, Zeus and Bitmaintech) suddenly no longer sell scrypt miners.  To me, if it turns out to be true, it would be one of the most daring scams in recent history.  Selling "hashlets" which are effectively disguised pre-orders on a massive scale so as to ensure a near monopoly in scrypt asic mining... genuis and evil all in one.

Will be interesting to see what happens next.  If LTCGear suddenly shuts down .. or Bitmaintech starts refunding L1 orders...??!  

Also, if this speculation turns out to be true, then the recent downturn in Primes might actually be a real buying opportunity.  Wouldn't it be funny if, now that GAW has secured money from hashlet sales to make pre-orders for ALL of the available next gen scrypt mining chips, it starts bungling payouts, killing revenue, etc. to drive down the price of hashlets .. so resellers can purchase up the primes, only to resell again when the pre-orders are delivered and revenue goes up (likely not until December though)??!  That would be triple-genuis-evil.

<END RAMPANT SPECULATION>

Could it be?

Hi again

Things are getting worse now !!

I sold hashlets and ended up with a negative account of -0.55 BTC .

everybody should check their account   !!!



There seems to be another shitstorm brewing. Some users are reporting their balances going up after buying hashlets. Perhaps they flipped the sign - sell and lose money, buy and gain money. What a clusterfuck.

Got shadow banned also, took me 2 weeks to realize it, I was also told by moderators that only Josh can revert this ban.. conveniently he just changed his account signature to this:

Quote from: GAW_CEO Signature
Because of the hundred of PMs I receive a day, I am not able to respond to PMs directly. Please please visit gawminers.com for contact information.

This is short for all bans are final.

It is the User’s and not GAW’s responsibility to ensure that the User only sends payments to or receives payments from persons or entities for the sale or supply of goods and services that the User may provide or receive in compliance with any applicable laws and regulations. The mere fact that a person or entity accepts payments through GAW is not an indication of the legality of the supply or provision of their goods and services. If the User is in doubt of the legality of a supply or purchase, he/she should not continue with the payment.

13. ACCOUNT SECURITY REQUIREMENTS

13.1. The User must take all reasonable steps to keep his/her GAW Account password safe all the time and never disclose it to anyone. GAW personnel will never ask the User to provide his/her password to GAW or to a third party. Any message the User receives or website that he/she visits that asks for the password, other than the GAW Website or a GAW payment gateway on a merchant website, should be reported to GAW. If the User is in doubt whether a website is genuine, it is required to ensure the website is EV SSL compliant (Security Certificate Validation is shown in the address bar of the User’s web browser).

13.2. It is advisable to change the User’s password regularly (at least every three (3) to six (6) months) in order to reduce the risk of a security breach in relation to the GAW Account.

If the User has any indication or suspicion of his/her GAW Account, login details, password or other security feature being lost, stolen, misappropriated, used without authorization or otherwise compromised, the User is advised to change the password. The User must contact Customer Service without undue delay on becoming aware of any loss, theft, misappropriation or unauthorized use of the User’s GAW Account, login details, password or other security features. Any undue delay in notifying GAW may not only affect the security of the User’s GAW Account, but may result in the User being liable for any losses as a result. If the User suspects that someone else accessed his/her GAW Account, the User should also contact the police and report the incident.

GAW may suspend the User’s Account or otherwise restrict its functionality on reasonable grounds relating to the security of the GAW Account or any of its security features or if GAW reasonably suspects that an unauthorized or fraudulent use of the User’s GAW Account has occurred or that any of its security features have been compromised. GAW will notify the User of any suspension or restriction and of the reasons for such suspension or restriction in advance or, where GAW is unable to do so, immediately after the suspension or restriction has been imposed, unless notifying the User would be unlawful or compromise our reasonable security interests. GAW will lift the suspension and/or the restriction as soon as practicable after the reasons for the suspension and/or restriction have ceased to exist.

13.5. The User must take reasonable care to ensure that his/her e-mail account(s) are secure and only accessed by the User, as his/her e-mail address may be used to reset passwords or to communicate with the User about the security of the GAW Account. GAW cannot be liable for the breach of an e-mail account resulting an unauthorized transaction to be executed with proper confirmation. In case any of the e-mail addresses registered with the User’s GAW Accounts are compromised, the User should without undue delay after becoming aware of this contact Customer Service and also contact his/her e-mail service provider.

13.6. Irrespective of whether the User is using a public, a shared or his/her own computer to access the GAW Account, the User must always ensure that his/her login details are not stored by the browser or cached or otherwise recorded.

One notable difference between the August version and current one is this:

Quote
3.12 GAW as defined herein  is not engaged in providing investment products, regulated commodities, or financial products of any type or kind.  GAW is not registered as a securities broker-dealer or an investment adviser either with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) or with any state securities regulatory authority, and does not offer any product or service based upon the sale or acquisition of securities or derivative based products or services. GAW is neither licensed nor qualified to provide investment advice and you are specifically and adamantly advised not to rely upon anything posted/communicated/implied or expressed by GAW.

And there is a lot more about that, including "forward-looking statements" and such.

During the provision of these virtual Services, Company is under no obligation to provide, acquire, or possess Materials dedicated to You by virtue of Your purchase of such Materials. Rather, Company, in its sole judgment and discretion, shall determine when to acquire Materials (such as hardware) corresponding to Your purchase. If you are purchasing, or have purchased, Hashlets, you understand and agree that Hashlets are not physical devices and cannot be shipped.

If you have purchased legacy materials, such as hardware, and if you terminate the Agreement, or if you make a written request to Company, then Company will provide you with your purchased Materials according to the following procedure. Within 21 days of termination or Company’s receipt of Your written request, Company will either possess, or will initiate steps to acquire, the Materials you purchased. Initiating acquisition of such Materials may include, for example, ordering such Materials from a third party supplier. You understand that Company has no direct control over the fulfillment process of any such third parties and therefore makes no guarantees as to the time it will take to acquire the Materials. Once Company either possesses such Materials, or acquires such Materials from such third parties, then, within 21 days, Company will initiate shipment of such Materials to You. Company makes no guarantees or representations regarding the timing or method of shipment of such Materials. You understand that Hashlets are virtual service units related to mining services, but are not mining hardware. Hashlets earnings depend on the pool chosen and Payouts reflect respective Pool Payouts. Selecting a Pool does not imply physically or electronically mining at the selected Pool. Rather, selecting a Pool determines a Payout corresponding to a calculation based on the selected Pool’s payout (based on, for example, real-time Megahash/second/day calculations). A Hashlet is virtual software. You will receive Payouts according to the Pool with with the Hashlet is associated. You expressly understand the the Company’s sole obligation to You is to Provide a Payout based on the Pool you choose. It may take 24-48 hours for your Hashlet to appear on Your Portal. Company reserves the right to refund You, and terminate services, at any time and for any reason. All sales are final. Pricing of Materials and Services is subject to change, at Company’s sole discretion, at any time, including after you have purchased Materials and/or Services (including Hashlets). Adding an item (such as a Hashelt) to a “cart” does not “lock in” a price. Maintenance fees may be adjusted up or down by the Company at any time and for any reason. Your Portal may not always be available.

Company reserves the right to reverse any entry and/or payout if it believes, in its sole discretion, that the entry or payout (or a portion of the payout) was made erroneously due to an error or omission in Company's system. Company will notify you within 3 business days from the date the error or omission is discovered by Company.

Company may offer Pool-specific Hashlets. With Pool-specific Hashlets, Payouts are based on the specific Pool for which the Hashlet was purchased and Payouts are not based on any other pools. Company may also offer trading services. With such trading services, Hashlets may be traded. Company reserves the right to charge a fee for any such trading activities, which Company will determine in its sole discretion. Company can cancel trades at any time and for any reason. Company can also reverse trades at any time and for any reason. The actual selling or trading price for an item being traded may change prior to the trade taking effect and/or prior to the item being sold.

That's cute. "We hereby confirm we, according to our rules, are not selling securities." And the law? What does that say? Wink

Oh, pulled a few hashlets from the market to put them in a bit lower

I think that's just in case you didn't get the message that you're now supposed to mine HPs and hold - they'll helpfully hold it for you.

You can't make BTC or any other convertible coin (well you can make a little bit of BTC but the fees are 50-100%). They're encouraging to mine an unreleased coin and are promising a 4x increase in value. I think that's the summary at the moment.

Edit: keep in mind that GAW's focus and promises have been changing a lot in the past 2-3 months, which obviously makes things confusing including this thread.

At any rate, after being banned from HashTalk and having my BTC held hostage for many days two weeks ago, I decided it was time for me to take action – even after I was finally able to make my withdrawal and sell my $10K in “digital” miners. This involved the initiation of my own legal action. Unfortunately, not even Josh knows who their process service agent is and the person he claims is the head of his legal dept does not seem to respond to my required enquires. Their legal gent listed on the Delaware corporate filing also appears to be elusive and has no interest in accepting legal documents relating to any of the other unregistered DBA names GAW does business under. Oh well. All information has now been handed over to the SEC and FTC, which appear to already know the name GAW and Josh Garza. So, if anyone needs further info on how to file/add their complaint with these US regulators who DO have jurisdiction over GAW/Zen, feel free to contact me.

I actually would like to know how considering I'm still waiting on a withdrawal from October 8th where they created a double spent and are now blaming me for the TX not being visible on the Blockchain, they won't admit that double spends/transactions with no confirms are drop of the blockchain 72 hours later.  This money is probably lost for me, gaw support seemed to indicate that without a valid TXID I can't get anything... one would think that they recorded that request to withdraw ___ to ___ in their systems somewhere before issuing the transaction and could easily see that the recipient never got the deposit.
