Only BCC Payment Method Accepted for the Latest Batch of Antminer S9

1 Oct

Something interesting and not so nice regarding Bitmain and their latest batch of Antminer S9 ASIC miners, it seems that although the company is listing prices in USD, BTC, BCC and LTC on their website it will only accept payment in BCC (Bitcoin Cash) for the batch of miners shipping November 21-30. As a maker and seller of these devices Bitmain of course has the right to sell them any way they want and accept the payment in the form they choose, but this way of essentially “forcing miners” to buy BCC to pay for the hardware (in case they do not have it) is probably not very “politically correct”. It is understandable that they want to support BCC, but is this the right way to do it or it will fire back with users going to alternative options for ASIC miners (not that there are many available unfortunately)…

The questionable text about BCC payment for the batch is under Payment and is quoted below:

Only BCC payment method is accepted in this batch, please use the exact amount mentioned in your order and complete the payment within one hour. After one hour, the order will expire and your payment may not be detected by the system automatically. If the payment is submitted but the receipt is delayed, we will make your payment “Valid” manually.
