Currently, we are shipping out Batch 1 devices (3000 devices in total).
Shipments started on Monday, 1st November 2021 and were stopped from 6th to 10th November 2021 due to a suddenly appearing Bluetooth issue that needed urgent fixing. The issue was fixed and shipments resumed on 11th November. Please read the updates on our announcement channel in Discord, there you will find a detailed technical explaination on what happened and how we mitigated it.
My order number is lower than from another person, still he received the miner already and I didn’t. Why?
We don’t send based on order numbers, we send randomly. This was clearly stated multiple times in Discord since Summer 2021 and we decided to do it this way to be fair to everyone who ordered.
I’m in Batch 1 and have still not received my miner. Why?
We aim to send out roughly 150-200 devices per day. Currently, due to the Bluetooth fault from last week, we are checking each and every device manually before shipping out, which takes lots of time. This means, we can’t reach the goal of 150-200 devices per day yet. We are currently developing an automation script to increase shipment speed next week.
I have gotten a device and can’t onboard with Bluetooth. What to do?
You now have the option to onboard over QR code. If you received your device after 24th November 2021, you already have it automatically enabled and just need to follow the setup guide here. If not, please still check the miner IP adress and enter it in the browser. If it works, great. If not, contact us, together with the MAC address of your device, so we can install an over-the-air update to your device. Thank you!
We will be opening up Pre-orders for Batch 3 starting at some day next week, between Sep. 13 2021 and Sep. 19 2021. We will NOT publish the date and time beforehand for obvious reasons.
Oh, and as we have your attention now, we would like to raise our glasses for a second and make a toast:
As most of you already know, we have now finished our successful launch campaign for Batch 1 and 2 through our waitlist. Although it was quite an amount of work to manage all pre-orders, inquiries and messages in the last couple of weeks, the effort was worth it: the pre-orders were very organized, our server infrastructure was rock-stable and we got amazing feedback from the community.
So we just want to let you know: thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for your compliments and feedback, and for joining and especially trusting us on this incredible journey! We know that trust is everything in this space. It’s amazing to see that our work pays off and you honestly believe in us. So again: Thank you for having you on board. You are amazing.
See you next week!
PS: don’t hestiate to write us in our Discord if you have questions, feedback or other ideas!
Please fill out the form to reserve your first-class seats and be the first to know when Controllino Hotspots goes into sale. Everyone who entered the waitlist until 25th August 2021 will be considered in Batch #1. If you enter after this date, your seats will be reserved for Batch #2 and above.
This chart gets updated daily – last update was on September 7th 2021 at 1:30 AM (Berlin Time). Please note: some people drop out of the waitlist or don’t place their order timely. If you have luck, you can still land in one of the earlier Batches. The earlier you enter, the better.
