    "First Batch" Shipping Plan (AKA 1/3 Shipping plan)

    One of the most frequent questions we get is how are we going to be shipping out the first ASIC units. Hopefully this thread will answer your questions with regards to that.

    BFL polled the community several month ago as to the most fair and agreeable method to ship the first ASIC units. What the community decided was the best method for everyone was this:

    BFL will produce X number of units per type (Jalapeno, LittleSC, SingleSC, Minirig SC) (We do not yet know how many X will be).

    We will then ship:

    1/3 of X number of units to those that ordered NEW orders.
    1/3 of X number of units to those that ordered UPGRADED orders.
    1/3 of X number of units will be randomly selected, based on order number, from all the orders received between June 23rd 2012 and July 23nd 2012.

    For example, if we have 27 units of Jalapeno's, 18 Units of Single SC and 9 units of MiniRig SC, we would ship:

    Jalapeno:

    9 units to people who made orders for new equipment, starting with the lowest order number.
    9 units to people who made orders for an upgrade for the pack of Jalapeno's coming from a Single.
    9 units would be shipped to a randomly selected set of order numbers placed in the first month of pre-orders.

    Single SC:

    6 units to people who made orders for new equipment, starting with the lowest order number.
    6 units to people who made orders for an upgrade from a Single, starting with the lowest order number.
    6 units would be shipped to a randomly selected set of order numbers placed in the first month of pre-orders for the Single SC.

    Minirig SC:

    3 units to people who made orders for new equipment, starting with the lowest order number.
    3 units to people who made orders for an upgrade from a Minirig, starting with the lowest order number.
    3 units would be shipped to a randomly selected set of order numbers placed in the first month of pre-orders for the Minirig SC.

    The numbers above are all hypothetical and we have not determined the actual quantity that will be shipping in the first batch. We are still assessing how many units we are able to assemble per day and how many we will have already assembled and tested prior to our first shipment.

    Some people wonder why we are doing it this way. We are shipping it this way, instead of piecemeal because the first people to receive BFL ASIC technology will have a decided advantage for a maximum of 2016 blocks. We want to avoid giving preferential treatment to any given segment of the mining community, providing a level and fair playing field for as many people as possible. We also want to distribute our technology as widely as possible so that no single entity can gain a potentially threatening amount of hashing power that may lead to an abuse of the bitcoin network or blockchain.

    ** Since the "Little" Single SC unit is a new product, not included in the first preorder phase, all SC orders up to and including orders placed on September 30th, 2012 will be assembled and shipped prior to shipping any NEW orders of the "Little" Single SC. UPGRADE orders will be shipping in the order received for your original order that you upgraded from, 1/2 for FIFO and 1/2 random from all orders.

    What if we placed an order on or before sept 30th, but payment didnt clear until after the 30th?
    On one of my orders this happened, paypal wouldnt accept my order, i had to have a new invoice sent over and then go through the payment process again.

    I had both a delay in getting wire transfer information and the confirmation of the transfer. I was credited with time it takes for you to receive it but not the time it took to actually get the information. Main issue is that my order was confirmed for the 23rd....one day after the 1/3 cutoff, can ya show me some love?

    does this 1/3 policy also apply to each subsequent batch of ASICs after the supply of the 'first batch' has been exhausted?

    The 1/3 policy is in reference to all preorders, they would like to fill 1/3 of preorders in the first batch. I can assume the other 2/3 will be preset by the date of the first shipment going out (half of whats left). All orders after that are no longer preorders, those should be FIFO...

    Am wondering if it's two FIFOs - one for upgrade and one for new orders, or it becomes a single FIFO based on order number. Or, are there FIFOs per model - e.g. a separate one for minirigs vs singles? e.g. as each new minirig rolls off the line it goes to next minirig order, or next minirig alternates between upgrade and new purchase... lots of combinations here! Appreciate a reply from BFL on this.

    Will

    Not FIFO they are selected like this.

    I'm asking about the second, and subsequent batches. I understand the first batch shipment plan. I'll await a reply from BFL.
