First of all, welcome to our first public news post! We feel the need to have a separate news & updates channel besides Discord so that all our customers can be reached easily, especially the one’s who don’t use Discord. Here, we will also post technical updates like miner software updates, dashboard updates, and much more.
Now, let’s move on to the important stuff:
Our Batch 3C stock is almost sold out now – this time, we experienced the most ridiculous amounts of traffic that we have ever seen, and besides having an absolutely overkill server for this website, it still almost crashed! Thankfully, almost all orders went through correctly and safe. Quite an experience, to be honest… thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your trust. I guess we need a beefy upgrade for our already beefy server now.
For those of you who didn’t got the chance to buy, you will have 2 options:
- We have kept some of the Batch 3C stock on the sidelines, as we expected high demand today. To give everyone a fair chance, we will open up the rest of Batch 3C stock during the next couple of days. It will be announced here, as well as on our Discord, as soon as new stock is live.
- Our new Batch 4 pre-orders will be published at latest at 8th December 2021, with deliveries starting End of April 2022. More info soon!
Why is Batch 4 so late, you probably ask? Well, as most of you know, the bottleneck here is Semtech (the company that produces LoRa chips like the SX1302) – or actually, not them directly, but the global chip shortage crisis all in all. They just can’t get that much chips produced in a short time at the moment, and we are not the only one ordering there. We ordered a 6-figure amount for next year a few months ago through our module provider and we will get the first round of chips End of April 2022. That’s the current situation – thanks, Covid and stockpiling car manufacturers…
Anyway, thank you again for your trust! More news to follow during the next couple of days.
