Bliss Devices - Allegedly VTC-capable ASIC maker hires salesman from bankrupt Hashfast, scourge of bitcoin miners
As if it wasn't enough that Bliss Devices is developing an ASIC that they claim will mine Vertcoin (1m/hash per chip it is claimed), and using the Vertcoin logo on its website, they have hired a former sales guy from Hashfast, the bankrupt bitcoin ASIC maker, to front for them. This guy, Abram Kottmeier, has links to prostitution and the extreme pornography industry in the Bay Area. Those of us that are victims of Hashfast's bankruptcy do not remember him fondly and would not do business with him again, to say the least. Be doubly careful of this company - they not only intend to fight Vertcoin's developers to make a Vertcoin-capable ASIC, they have also hired a sales manager with a dubious past and whose previous work in the business was for a company that has lost tens of millions of dollars belonging to hundreds of miners, big and small. But mostly small. We gotta do all we can to keep these kind of people out of Vertcoin.
Why you shouldn't buy Hashfasts new "up to 800GH/s" "product"
gmaxell, moderator of the customhardware subforum on bitcointalk.org made an accusation against hashfast so damning that they deleted his text from their forum thread (in the subforum gmaxwell moderates...). Here are gmaxwells words in full:
Just in case people are forgetting. Hashfast is a bunch of thieves. I do not say this lightly: They have literally taken my coin, violated their contract, and provided me with nothing in return. I paid them 98 BTC for hardware "scheduled" to be delivered in October. It's March 2nd now have received nothing and they have not responded to any of my past private efforts to resolve the matter— now spanning months. (Copies of communications and certified letter tracking numbers available on request). I am not some competitor or troll: I'm a moderator of this sub-forum and a developer of the Bitcoin reference software. I have no financial interest or otherwise in any other mining hardware company. I mine personally to support the Bitcoin network. I've made a genuine effort to resolve this matter from hashfast, but it seems instead that they plan on taking my funds and running. I sometimes feel bad that I probably do get "more fair" treatment than others with a lower profile in the community, but if they're willing to do this to me then what are they willing to do to you? Business screwups and delays happen, but in my opinion Hashfast has gone far beyond those boundaries and into the space of outright theft. Every additional sale hashfast makes while screwing over me and other miners in this manner damages the Bitcoin ecosystem and discourages me— and presumably other small miners— from participating. I've taken what I feel to be a fairly soft hand in this so far, in the hopes that they'd make things right after they cleared up some of their startup hurdles— but with new products being promoted, it seems that isn't their plan. I urge everyone to provide HashFast with no further business until they make right by their past customers. If you're looking for hardware and haven't been (rightfully) scared off by the astronomic prices being charged by current hardware vendors— I can personally vouch for Bitmain's Antminer S1s (*), which are delivered promptly, with absolutely no pre-order nonsense, and perform precisely as specified. Cointerra products also appear to be competently handled (though current units only deliver ~1.6TH/s against their original 2TH/s spec, and at least my unit has some hashrate stability problems when run at full speed), and they've treated their customers with reasonable respect (e.g. compensating customers for delays above and beyond the contract). (*) Disclosure, fwiw: Last year Bitmain sent me a prototype 90GH/s antminer for testing/development prior to their public shipping. I subsequently bought a couple others as a normal customer and have been pretty happy with them as have virtually all of their other customers. Rather than seeing this as a source of potential bias here I'd point out that any well run mining hardware company would get pre-production units out to developers in order to avoid the early product missteps that other companies like HashFast have had.
I'm thinking about purchasing from KNC Miner. Has anyone had any experiences with them? Their website claims that all orders paid for will ship by October. I wanted to get the 100GH Mercury miner. I emailed them to get more info, but I wanted to reach out to you guys because you're the experts. Bitcointalk.org is not so organized, and there's less of a community.
Is a Baby Jet (400 GHash) going to be worth the investment in your opinion?
https://hashfast.com/shop/baby-jet-second-batch/?add-to-cart=1701 Above is the link to the specs. I was thinking about investing some money into this thing and was wondering what you guys thought. I put the info through a calculator and it says I should make the cost back in 22 days (I did the cost of rig + shipping) but I just wanted some opinions before I did anything.
The bitcoin miner utilises SHA–256 algorithm with a hash rate of 16 TH/s. It deploys a DM8575 GHS chip that consumes approximately 0.075 J/GH of electricity. In addition, it has an ethernet connection and dual fan. Moreover, thanks to the implementation of the ASICBOOST algorithm in Dragonmint T16, the efficiency can be improved by 20 percent. Taking into account its power consumption level ...
