BITMINE AG, a Switzerland-based Bitcoin miners manufacturer already well known for being one of the very few advanced bitcoin-mining hardware manufacturers in the world that actually delivered their units, officially started to collect orders for Bitcoin-mining hardware based on their groundbreaking “CoinCraft” 28-nanometer ASIC design. Since Monday September the 9th at 20:00 when pre-orders officially opened, following a pre-sale promotion in China through Bitmine's Chinese distributer HXTOP.COM, more than 2.5 PetaHash/s worth of miners and ASIC chip lots have been ordered or reserved to the tune of 15 million US dollars. The CoinCraft miners are available in two major form factors, one called the “CoinCraft Desk” in a desktop case and configurable from 200 to 1000 GH/s at prices ranging from $1499 to $7099, and the “CoinCraft Rig” in a 19” rack mount case configurable from 500 to 2000 GH/s at prices ranging from $4249 to $14999.
Both models are based on the CoinCraft A1, the custom ASIC chip developed by Bitmine in co-operation with Innosilicon that is based on Global Foundries’ 28nm HPP process and is designed with a fully custom high speed architecture. Both power efficiency (starting at just 0.35 W/GH/s) and pricing (starting at 4.5 $/GH) make it the most advanced solution in today's Bitcoin mining world.
Shipping of the miners is starting from the 10th of December 2013 and all purchases will be covered by Bitmine’s Customer Protection Plan, an agreement under which the customers will get compensated with increased hashing power in case of a short delay, arise, with a complete refund option and a penalty available in case of a more significant delay.
Moreover, Bitmine AG is proud to announce to have formed a strategic partnership alliance with one of the world's leading mining pools - 50BTC, 50BTC users will enjoy a special advanced pool configuration for their miners, performed directly at Bitmine AG's assembly plant, and receive a dedicated support and significant discount from 50BTC, as a part of this special arrangement.
