No more blocks from KnC Miners. Very sad. But the question now is: How many more miners have turned off their ASIC's?
Are we heading for a mega clusterfuck mempool?

has anyone bought Antminers from @Jihan & Bitmain? how reliable are they and have they represented a decent value for the money invested? any funny business like premining with them before delivery? i haven't heard anything bad so i'm curious to buy one for fun. here's hoping to a massive continuation of this trend as it will help redistribute mining across the globe and diversify revenues for Bitmain.

I have an S5 I keep for amusement purposes. It arrived fairly quickly. I believe they mine with them for a while before selling them.

It's a bit of a shame there's not more competition in the field to be honest. Prices are high meaning mining margins are low. Unless you're one of the big mining cartels.

I bought a used S5 on ebay last year because I needed a heater for my office. Worked like a champ. I replaced the stock fan, though, since it sounded like a jet engine.

@cypherdoc I've bought a lot of antminers. Well built, stable and promptly delivered. Basically a level of service which is unheard of in Bitcoin ASICs. They had one preorder machine (Scrypt ASIC), but I think they cancelled it and paid back the preorders.
i read something about an S9. does that mean they've sold to customers 9 iterations of the Antminer, all with reasonable customer satisfaction?
