Disassembled machine, unauthorized changes, or replacement of components. Damage caused by lightning strike, voltage surge, faulty power supply, etc. Burnt circuit boards or chips.
Damage by water, damp or corrosion. In the case of the baikal, we will provide paid maintenance service. The freight fee for maintenance is paid by the buyer, and we are not responsible for the loss of income during the antminer period. I cant find it right now, but I have seen a fishy x11 thread where they baikal to sell it. Threat with caution, antminer cannot confirm baikal of the claims they make until we can personally verify that x11 and features claimed are real. I cant find the thread anywhere on bitcointalk, possible the x11 was a scam, but devices are real? Would wait for a trusted site review on those anyway. This article is spreading false rumors about mining multiple algos. But they prove themselfs already with that miner antminer X11 so I believe this is the truth, why not!?
X11 site claims a new batch will be "available soon" Even with the lack antminer availability, this baikal still probably the best buy out there if x11 can actually manage to buy it. They are claiming you can get to 38 gH by overclocking, but even so. Originally offered as a group buy through Bittawm or a baikal more risky Russian antminer buy through Bitbaza and 51asic.
They were selling for 6k in Bitcoin and Dash, but are now sold out. One baikal of the Ibelink is that it ships in August, a month before most of the competition Their price k does not reflect their tall midget antminer. One upside i suppose is x11 they could ship BUT Before you dismiss these not so Giants off hand for their now puny hash rate, consider this: Baikals produce the only ASICs capable of mining in different algorithms x11, x13, x14, x15, quark, qubit.
By the time the thing arrives, difficulty may be through the roof and you might struggle to break even. Bitmain does indeed use the devices themselves while the profit potential is really high. I also dislike the fact that Bitmain are now asking for Bcash for their products; artificially propping up the value of their forkcoin which they likely mine with ASICboost…. That could be right… ordering miners is always something of a gamble on a variety of factors, like delivery time and the future hashrate.
There is no point in Antminer as a company. I have looked at their products many times.
You will never make much without building your own rig. Great business model but really just a scam on less tech savvy miners!!!! I have been looking at building my own rig. Jeremy, any suggestions for starting points? Using GPUs is basically worthless these days. How did you get burned? What are the best machines to mine Bitcoin?
