The leading Bitcoin mining company dropped their prices up to 52%, offering the most competitive prices in the market.
Probably E-Pickaxe competitors will be forced to update their pricing in the next days.
E-pickaxe one of the fastest growing Bitcoin mining contractors, will start mining before than expected, originally they promised for November 2013, then they adjusted the launch date to October 25th. Finally the mining process is starting now and they expect to be at full speed mining in the next 48 hours.
Is the only company that is delivering on time or better than expected.
In the last few days bitcoin mining contracts suppliers has been contacted by a new type of customer, customers looking for very high volume contracts over 1 TH/s.
This tendency is generating a new kind of offer from the providers in order to capture this new customers.
Now we see some approaches specifically for that niche in suppliers like CloudHashing but in all the cases the mining contracts providers are providing tailormade deals to such customers.
We expect in short time the companies will publish specific mining plans for very large volume customers.
We get information about e-Pickaxe is close to define to order for more hardware.
They are negotiating a new batch with HashFast or Cointerra, as we know both companies are taking orders for their hardware providing 1.2 Terahash for HashFast and 2.0 Terahash for Cointerra, in any case will be a huge advance.
As soon as we get the confirmation we will inform and probably let some customers order them as soon as they are ready.
Pricing will be probably unbeatable.
The mining contracts are getting hot every day and new opportunities arrive week after week.
This is the case of a new company Byteminr they are offering aggressive pricing based on their KnCminer Jupiter orders. Starting at $399 for a 10 Gh contract might be a good option if they get the hardware on time.
They are accepting Bitcoin and Google payments we don’t have contract with them but we will post more info as soon as we have it.
During the last days I have been working to confirm if CloudHashing is paying and yes I confirmed from 3 different sourcres, at least they payed on August 6th and 20th.
So we can confirm is the first (or at least the first important one) paying for their contracts.
We tryed to get in contact with the company for more info with no luck but I don’t wish to delay this information anymore.
Congrats to CloduHashing and their customers!
We received today some good news a new player is in the market giving us more contracts opportunities.
The company is mimoCloud (https://mimocloud.net) and they will use KnC hardware as platform for their contracts, considering KnC generated some attention with the latest news about their advances is a very interesting option.
As soon as we have more information about the new company we will include more information.
A new player took our attention. E-Pickaxe is taking advantage of the latest hardware releases and start with a quite aggressive pricing with u$s 42.- GH/s and offering plans of up to 64 GH/s is an interesting option, they inform current orders will be fulfilled during October/November of this year depending on the provisioning of Butterfly Labs. Their plans include the Administrative Fee and you are not forced to reinvest giving each customer the freedom to manage the generated coins in the way their prefer.
This week we will setting up the test account and we will keep you posted.
There is an interesting option in mining contracts is the case of ASICME a China based Bitcoin mining hardware supplier that also provides mining contracts, his location “may” give him an edge in accessing faster to Avalon Chips. Their prices are not so attractive u$s 138.- Gh/s but a fast delivery time may compensate his higher price, not confirmed yet but they may have some capacity for new contracts during this month (August 2013) considering that many be a quite interesting option.
