Hello fellow bitcoiners,

Off the back of the successful raffle of a 50Gh 1 week mining contract, I am proud to offer a new raffle to all of my fellow mining enthusiasts!


Welcome to the Butterfly Labs Bitforce Single raffle!


You read that right. I am ready to raffle one of my BFL singles away. Each ticket is only .25 BTC each!

Imagine, turning .25 BTC into a Butterfly Labs Bitforce single, a return of at least 480 times the cost of a single ticket.

So you’re probably wondering, “how can I verify that gigavps has a single to raffle off?”

My fifteen singles hashing away -> http://bit.ly/Ix3ktV
Gigavps’ farm monitoring page (all the singles are on rig 100) -> http://bit.ly/IxUZns


Rules of the contest:

  • The odds of winning this raffle is 1 / (total # of tickets sold)
  • This raffle will end on Friday, May 4, 2012 at 5pm EST.
  • You may purchase as many tickets as you like.
  • Whether buying a single ticket or bulk tickets, each ticket will have its own ticket number and therefore a unique hash.
  • The only piece of information you need to submit is your email address. This will be hashed so it will not be given out to the public.
  • The raffle will be decided by:
    • We will combine the SHA256 hash of each email address with the hash of your ticket number and the first block hash to be found after the raffle ends. Here is an example:
    • sha(sha(email) + sha(ticketNumber) + hashOfBlockFound)
    • The lowest hash wins!
  • Once the results of the raffle have been verified, the single will be shipped to the new owner within 48 hours.

Enjoy and good luck!

Best regards,
gigavps

Q/A

Q: Will the BFL warranty of 6 months transfer?
A: Whoever wins the single will have my full support in dealing with BFL should anything happen to the single.

Q: Rev 1, Rev 2 or Rev 3 unit?
A: It is up to the winner. I have no real preference.

Q: When is the Mini-Rig raffle?
A: Never. Smiley

The first two lines are 5870s. Smiley

The other 15 are the singles. I have to use a special utility to get the stats for the singles so a lot of stats are missing for them.

A minor issue - the block found after the raffle ends may have a timestamp before the end and a block found before the raffle ends may have a timestamp after the end ... (both are possible)

A minor issue - the block found after the raffle ends may have a timestamp before the end and a block found before the raffle ends may have a timestamp after the end ... (both are possible)

If it makes you feel better, we can do it this way:

1. Close the raffle buy buttons.
2. Compile the list of purchasers and tickets into hashes.
3. Post the list to pastebin.com
4. Declare the next block to have a time stamp after the pastebin.com post to be the block used to find the winner.

How does this sound?
