There was no more deals being offered by Bitmain like there were with the S5’s. In order to receive a discount that would have made it worth it we would have needed over 100 units purchased, we didn’t have the funding for this. The original S5 pricing included pricing to Purchase and host the hardware with Bitmain,however we also received a very decent discount where the pricing was not much over the pricing of buying an S5 on the open market. The S7 pricing only was for hardware PSU’s and Shipping to get to the DC so they could be installed, no prepaying any hosting contract requirements. Without a discount many of these added charges caused the S7 batch pricing to be out of range for members as yourself.
No one on the team made out with anything. I lost over $20k in hardware and other members over $60k. The DC made deals with investors we were unaware of, the investors called in their loans, the DC couldn’t pay, and was told ‘you or them’ and they came after us and shut us down and change the locks the same day. I couldn’t even get into the DC anymore after this.
Many of us got screwed by GAW for ‘cloud mining’ which was truely a ponzi, and now we got screwed with real hardware for having a DC breach a contract back in Jan/Feb agree to moving month to month, then referencing said contract to close out any business with us and take the hardware and run.
Every attorney we spoke with quoted us 150k - 300k for the amount it would cost to fight it.
