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.

it is not working at all so far!

I tried to get to the order page to buy 4 machines. it said 19.19690294 BCC

The first time, i got so much confused with BCC. They do not put the full name of the coin. So , because Bitconnect coin used the BCC term ( I lost money on the conversion there.

Anyway reconvert them back to BTC and moved them to CEX.IO that is the only place that looks like exchanges BCCs. There I had to trade to get Bitcoin cash, ending up paying Bitcoins worth about $1000 more to get my 19 BCCs What a waste!

After I managed to have the full amount in 19 plus, I sent them to the blockchain address that appeared on their order page.

and guess what!
The money returned back!!!!!

When I asked support what is going on I received a print screen that said my account contains 0 BTC
Yes you read this correct 0 Bitcoins. not Bitcoin cash! No wonder the transaction did not go through!

I am trying to figure it out asking what currency to send, and where, but the support agent does not read the email and resend me the 0 BTC printscreen.


Until they fix their act to accept USD or BTC I do not think I will not do more business with them.

Looks like this is big scam!
They are asking to you to pay in BCC on rate $340. however, current rate is over $450. Meaning they wants your 30% more money!
I would not like to buy these stupid business product.
