The Bitcoin mining industry has flourished with the price rise seen in cryptocurrencies particularly Bitcoin. Butterfly labs has been a long running and very established company that had been running a business selling a huge variety of Bitcoin mining hardware with a price range of $150 to $30k and over. However recent events have suggested that Butterfly labs has been a fraudulent company ripping off thousands of customers of over $30 million.

It should be shut down earlier. This applies to other companies.

I read one article that mentioned BFL's response that said something along the lines that BFL has shipped $30 million in miners and has processed refunds amounting to $15+ million. I would say that there is a serious problem with any company that is refunding 50%+ of what they are actually selling
