That seems accurate. I approve.

Additionally, I got confirmation of stock from Bitmain and the chips are paid for. TXID f530b8bde269d1c2433e4603a6b4b0db753938fe32f4cb52518bb5f8abddb5b6

I'll be sending out I think nine sticks this afternoon, eight to the testers and one to German guy.

very nice.  quick question how many chips does that transaction of  24.9 Btc get you?

https://blockchain.info/address/1BURGERAXHH6Yi6LRybRJK7ybEm5m5HwTr

about 6600 usd = 1000 chips?  6.60 usd a chip?

I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.

Nope, more than that. It's a single order that'll be split between me and the German guy so there's also two shipping charges in there.

Bick never got back to me, so I'm substituting ManeBjorn as an alternate. He had previously expressed interest in reviewing the hardware and doing a writeup for his website.

I will be also pretty happy to review it if you need one more.

I did the t-shirts round  Grin and already review before.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=938679.0

Im in Canada and will be more than happy to buy big quantity to dispatch in Canada to manage the border.

Let me know

You were my next alternate if anyone else had backed out.

I've had a lot of people asking to do reviews (seriously a lot, including a bunch of n00bs and folks I've never heard of), and a lot of people asking to buy sample sticks. Gonna say this now so I don't have to repeat myself a bunch of other times (again) - if you're not one of the 8 listed above, you're not getting a sample stick. Go ahead, offer me a hundred bucks for one. You're not getting it. More than half of the ones I have materials for are being sent out to reviewers, and we're keeping the rest for in-house stuff like software dev and posterity and stuff. So please, stop asking.

Hey sidehack,
since you have your fans here in Europe, I am curious for the German business that manufactures the boards in licence to your plans.
If I may offer myself for a review and first purchase of your licenced 18 chip boards, since I life next door to good old Germany.
If this goes to your plans, let me know  Grin

For Advertisement. PM me to discuss.

From aug 2014 to  july  2015 100 pages in

that is 3100 pms read and answered.

I am sure that sidehack has had more then his share of pm's since this thread opened.

This is kind of positive since that proove there is a support!  Grin

The most beautiful part of this project is this is a community project! People join and try to help.
And this is the best gear so far so. Power to community!  Wink

Great Job Sidehack and Novak

As I mentioned somewhere in a rant.. whenever there's a new product, there's no shortage of people who want to do a review... especially if they get the gear for free.  SFARDS' thread is full of that, too.. can only imagine what their forum and e-mail inboxes looked like. (as an aside - J4bberwock's progressing nicely on that front)
( disclaimer: obviously, I'm getting one 'for free'. I was happy to pay - even if it's just for shipping - but sidehack has so far declined. )

Bick never got back to me
Yeah, he seems to have disappeared.  Read something earlier that I was sure he was gonna pounce on (rightly so), but then noticed he hadn't.

I am curious for the German business that manufactures the boards in licence to your plans.
Same here - though I'm sure all will be revealed in due time.  Would just favor everyone involved in terms of costs savings, especially in shipping Smiley

The guy's already paid me for chips (and now that payment has been handed to Bitmain), and we've worked out a simple deal on licensing. If he wants to talk about it, I reckon it's his job to do so. Needless to say, I probably won't be selling any sticks in Europe since he'll be able to get 'em to anyone there cheaper (and presumably just as good).

Not that you should reveal your German chip partner , but if he wants to let us know  his name it would be cool.



Oh Shout out to bitmaintech for selling you the chips.

 And they are pretty good at delivering gear.



I would say more , but it belongs in a different thread. we don't want to sidetrack  the sidehack thread.

Some behaviour suggestions in this thread peeps, just to keep things chugging along nicely:

  • Don't try to disclose the amount paid by the team for the chips, they had to sign an NDA for that (afaik) and we don't need that contract being tossed to the garbage bin, just keep calm about that, keep your calculations to you.
  • Don't effing ask when will it be ready. It will be ready when it's done.
  • Want to support? 1BURGER address is for that. Want to support further? buy your PSUs and adapter boards from these guys, they make excellent electronics and high quality cabling.

There... had to say it....
