Thank you TheBlogChain for agreeing to test our Turing Stations Razor and Atlantis miners! We look forward to your review.

is TheBlogChain legit?

we see 2 reviews done in text but no screenshots of it phisically, only prerendered done in 3D modeling software, normally a review consist of seeing the actual hardware setup and inside pictures of it etc

I guess, they do seem professional tho, lacking a video which is what startups need to convince..
Someone needs to pay them a visit and get some picturess and not prerendered shit done in CAD/3DSMAX if there the real deal

I think we all know the drill already. No picture, no video, domain registered just 2 weeks ago on 16.08 and under a proxy name. 95% it's a scam!

They do accept CC so if someone wants to have fun he should do it, but be prepared for a scam!

P.S. I love the case design of the 7TH/s miner. It has a smaller room for intake air compared to the 5TH/s miner even if it generates more heat. Pro design!

They are not necessarily work with them. Maybe they received some money for the article or they just took them as a good company. Journalists aren't aware of what's going on in the bitcoin mining scene with all the scams.

Yeah, just look what you have to send them first.

Quote
- Photo of ID or Passport (front and back);

- Photo of any utility bill (from the last 3 months). The name must be the same as the one written on the credit card.

- Photo of credit card (front and back)

Extremely likely to be a scam.

Or they simply don't care. It's not their job. Look at this forums rules regarding scams and apply to the journalists.

Subtle RoadStress Wink

Usual pattern for most scams: Sock puppet new account either feigning ignorance and asking "what do you think of this?" introducing the alleged hardware for the first time, or for the less experienced scammers: "this is great" in support, usually saying they bought from them.

No doubt in my mind that it is a scam, I think they tick every red flag in the scammers handbook.

Just my personal opinion, others can feel free to throw their life savings away here... (this company won't get a cent from me).

For laughs, check out the back end of the "TURING RAZOR MINER 7TH/s":



The claimed power consumption is 3.2kW, and it is only serviced by two small fans at the back (plus some small PSU fans). The rest of the back is "boarded up", no vent holes at all! That box doesn't look like it could dissipate 3.2kW of heat.

And WTF are all those connectors for? I don't need a headphone jack or microphone jack on a bitcoin miner (if that is what those small round connectors are, it's not clear). Two ethernet jacks? A serial port?

Looks like an old server.


Run a Bitcoin node, support the network.

Let's face facts here. It's a complete fraud unless Dogie has a review unit. That's the benchmark we've all come to expect.

Just dropping this here: As pointed out by 'Needs Investigating' in the first-linked article, it's a RAID Storage Controller; http://www.sansdigital.com/accuraid/ar424ir.html

If they want to establish ANY kind of credibility here, Video, pool stats, photos, video of miner hashing with cgminer+ realtime pool stats. For starters. THEN they need to somehow show they will ship. Send a unit to a trusted member or two in the community. Dogie as has been mentioned.

This will help in marketing efforts....BUT they need to show they are manufacturing AND offer guarantees they are not mining with people's hardware.

Again you want to make a real name for yourself? Those are some steps to get started. Otherwise if you cannot do those things, like all others you will be seen as a scam and the burden of proof is on  you to show you are not a scam.

Oh and considering your phone number it actually places you in Broward County in Florida not Norway as you claim (red flag), it would be nice to see a physical address to identify the legitimacy of your operation. Also corporate registration (not that it matters as other companies have Delaware registrations and still scam people but it helps as a start). But at least a physical address starts to provide some validation of your operation for starters. There was no address on your website.

You have evidence of any of the so called testimonials in action where are these posted besides your website? It's easy to make up these testimonials from a marketing standpoint. Until we see physical proof of this hardware working in detail, it will be a hard sale. As has been said all the flags for a scam are here. The 3 week piece is also what other companies have done.
