It looks like mini-rig purchasers are still screwed the most, unless they get priority for upgrading.  Based on the the order list thread some people are scheduled to receive their mini-rig in August.  2 months later a handful of jalapenos will equal the hashing power and then the mini-rig owner will be forced to upgrade (shelling out another $15k) or lose out entirely.  If they do decide to upgrade and end up in some order lottery it's really gonna hurt.  Seems like punishment for early customers who put their faith/$ in BFL.


Add to that non refundable 20% import tax that first needs to be repaid, then another 20% import tax when the SC Rig arrives.

My solution:

Open up a pre–order list from Monday till mid–july, then close it.

This will give everyone ample time to order

Make an inventory of what has been ordered and start producing exactly that amount

When all the pre–Orders have been produced, pack them and ship them off at the same day in october, be it jalapenos, singles or rigs.

That way everone will receive their products around the same time



This is the most fair proposal I've heard.

Still, it's by far the most fair distribution based solely on their output - not delivery networks.  Send out international orders shortly prior to the remainder.

Well then not only do people in Europe miss atleast 10 first golden days of hashing compared to American customers, but are also hit by 18%-25% of import tax depending on Country.

My idea on the orderiing is this: randomize the order book by the day. This means everyone who orders June 24th will get theirs before June 25th, but it makes it less of a quick click scramble to get your order in. This is fair because there is little difference in loss between someone who had their money tied up for 120 days versus someone who had it tied up for 120 days and 23 hours.

Concur with this. Would like BFL to announce a pre-order date at least 72 hours in advance to give people time to move funds to BTC.

I think this is a good idea but it runs the risk of a massive epic hashrate dump on the network within a couple of days that may mean that even the first buyers don't make money on the ASIC. Difficulty may suddenly blow up so fast that nobody makes any money. There's going to be an 8 TH dump by gigavps already right at the beginning of the ASIC penetration.
