All About BTC, LTC, ETH mining as well as other alternative crypto currencies
Earlier this month KnCMiner has announced that they are ready to start shipping the Titan Scrypt ASICs and they are apparently already doing so, though a bit late than they initially announced. Users on the Bitcointalk forum are reporting that they are seeing status updates on their pre-orders for the first batch of KNC Titan Scrypt ASIC miners that are apparently being shipped and they are getting tracking numbers. The pre-order price of the 300 MHS KnCMiner Titan Scrypt ASIC miner was $9995 USD without VAT and since their initial announcement they have been upgraded to 300 MHS hashrate (for the first batch) and to 400 MHS for the second batch. With the current price and the expected difficulty increase for Litecoin and other Scrypt-based crypto currencies the ROI time for these machines does not promise to be short. Not to mention that users that have received their units already are not too happy with the results – hardware issues and lower than advertised performance seem to be common, higher power draw than advertised is also reported and each cube still has a single PCI-E power connector for 250W+. Could KnC be following in the footsteps of BFL, decent start and then starting to disappoint customers more and more until the company gets shut down by the government?
