ZeusMiner has been a hit in the Scrypt ASIC Miner manufacturer world. They released their miners at many locations in the field. First, they sold units directly to customers. Second, they did OEM manufacturing for companies like GAWMiner and Hashra. Being able to do both spurred huge growth for the new manufacturer. With the growth and large sales numbers, ZeusMiner has been able to surpass the initial reach that Gridseed, the first Scrypt ASIC miner manufacturer to the market, achieved in a big way.

ZeusMiner On The Global Scrypt Mining Network and Next Gen Scrypt Miners

ZeusMiner has recently announced Global Scrypt Mining Network, an ambitious project looking distribute more Scrypt ASIC miners across the globe. Here are some of the basics of the new initiative.

[divider]CCN[/divider]

With a desire to deliver sustainable hashing rates with minimal cost and risk, ZeusMiner is now seeking for global partners to build a Global Scrypt Mining Network. Anyone with proper resources can apply to become one of our global partners jointly to own and run our mining farms and most importantly, share profits brought by Zeus miners.
This is a chance you should never miss. Within this network, we are partners. Within this network, you share all profits with ZeusMiner.

Under this plan, you will get Zeus miners at cost price-which is unprecedented, and we will guarantee production and technical support as intellectual investment. In the end, we split the profits. It’ll be a win-win solution for both of us because it saves you a lot and saves us a lot as well. And we are collecting coins together.

By bringing together their customers both large and small allowing them to participate at lower costs while distributing the hashing power across the globe gives a huge incentive to join ZeusMiner as part of their network. The Global Scrypt Mining Network is a bold move also in that other companies like KNC and BFL instead took their customers money and built private farms instead of shipping miners. Here ZeusMiner makes their customers the partner and shares the rewards.
ZeusMiner also announced last week that they are soon to be shipping their next gen miners that will be even more power efficient. This step is huge as it allows for a better ROI for customers while giving solid performance that has come with the first generation of their miners.

I was able to ask some questions of Terry and his team and ZeusMiner, and it turned out very positive indeed.

The Global Scrypt Mining Network Plan is a very ambitious plan. How was the concept come up with? What kind of response are you hoping to have from the community and your customer base?

The global network plan was brought up because recently the Scrypt mining industry is a little bit weak. We want to regain market confidence and inject more vitality into Scrypt mining industry. And what we need for that is to deliver more cost-efficient and sustainable hashing rates. This is important especially when mining difficulty is increasing daily. We know there are places with cheaper electricity which will cut the cost significantly. We are hoping mining fans with proper resources can join our network and strengthen our competitiveness in this industry. And they will enjoy good profits for the investment.

With the next gen miners coming out, many are very happy at the lower power consumption. With the Global Scrypt Mining Network Plan did making the next gen miners more power efficient become even more important as people are becoming very conscious about power consumption now?

With the exponentially increasing hashing rates in the pool, we believe in the foreseeable future power consumption will be a determining factor whether a miner has a market. That’s why we’ve been working hard on reducing power consumption to assure fans more ROI on minimal cost.

ZeusMiner has went all out again for their Next Gen Miners as you can see with this just announced sale plan on 7/16/14.

ZeusMiner Offers 5% off for Payments in Litecoin or Bitcoin.

ZeusMiner Accepts Payments in Litecoin, Darkcoin or Bitcoin.

Demand was very very large for your first-gen miners, what lessons have you learned to go forward with the 2nd gen and the rollout of the GSMN to meet demand?

We’ve been favored by fans for our GEN I miners. On GEN II machines, besides our efforts on power reduction, we will improve customer services, which we value no less than the quality of our miners to guarantee a better experience with ZeusMiner.

Many people are asking about the Zeusiner Hashing compensation is that close to completion or are you not ready to speak about it yet?

We believe many of the fans have already got their coupons or online hosting rates. We are still handling more because new requests are sent to us every day. But it is near completion.

With the value of Litecoin went lower and Terry being a very vocal supporter of Litecoin and all scrypt coins will there be discounts for purchasing at ZeusMiner or purchasing through affiliates for using Litecoin and other scrypt coins? Incentives help spur the rate of value to go up and help keep more of it in use.

Yes we always have this 5% discount plan if you pay with BTC/LTC and now Darkcoin. We’ll consider other Scrypt coins in the future.

What things would you like to add?

We hope the community can see our dedication in providing reliable Scrypt miners. We appreciate all the support given by our fans. That’s the impetus for ZeusMiner to keep evolving itself and deliver better miners.

I have had the opportunity to use and review several ZeusMiner products, the Blizzard and Falcon already and the GAWMiners Black Widow next, and they have left me with a very positive impression of their chips and mining hardware. ZeusMiner’s current introduction of the Global Scrypt Mining Network is a new way to interact with and partner with the customer base, in a way, that I think is a great idea. The next generation miners coming out from ZeusMiner is another step in the right direction. I enjoy all the innovation from so many manufacturers and vendors in the Crypto Currency world, and ZeusMiner is no exception as they push forward into new territory as well.

 

Disclosure: I have received a miner from ZeusMiner for testing and review.

  1. Zeusminer has alterted their name to halleybtc.com, after dozens of users starting posting that they were having difficulty withdrawing btc.

    After a technical issue they got back to me in broken english telling me not to worry, but after I politely asked for a refund they ignored all future requests. They have now ignored 4 emails. I can not withdraw my btc, they will not issue a refund, and instead prefer me to be hellbent on stopping others from falling victim to the same fate.

    Terry Li, all I wanted was my lousy btc back. Are you still ignoring me?

    Do not invest any money into halleybtc, or the next reiteration of this scam. You can change the name of a ponzi scheme, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t a ponzi scheme.

    If you have been a victm of halleybtc, speak up! Complain to the following

    abuse@qq.com
    abuse@godaddy.com
    abuse@cloudflare.com

    http://www.ic3.gov

    MOST IMPORTANTLY, get vocal on message boards & comment on articles that mention their name so they are forced to change their name, again. If they are going to steal more btc, let’s make them work hard for it until the authorities catch up. If you have been a victim, speak up! Stand up! Assert yourself. No, they won’t credit your coin because that is what an honest company would do, but they can’t ignore all of us if we all act in unison.

  2. Zeushash a/k/a/ zeusminer stopped payinhg out on October 20th. That ponzi scheme is through. Do not under any circumstances invest any money with “Terry Li”. They are not honoring cancelation requests, or responding to emails. You have been advised & forewarned, invest at your own peril

    Great! It’s nice to know someone out there is listening. Here’s my original rant/plea for help:
    https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=684153.0
    I know I wasn’t the only one. The Zeus Forum was filled w/ similar posts… as well. I’m not usually one to b*tch, but I was so impressed after receiving my Blizzards… but just totally let down when it came to the Thunder experience. I just hope they see this and work on it. I went from being a 100% guaranteed repeat customer… but being rather guarded now. So we’ll see. Btw, thanks again for listening & being objective.

    Ah I see. I had the same thing with the X6 NX. I just snapped them off and plugged in. I will note your exp in my review that is coming up this week of the NX Gen unit.

    The connectors on my mine were 8-pin male connectors… but with two prongs in top right (clip side) connected by thin plastic. This type would not plug in to any of my Corsair units… which required 6-pin or 8-pin, but with all prongs individually separated. The connector only had 6 wires running to it though, so I figured it was safe to just cut down through the thin plastic connecting the prongs… and then I sawed in from the side and completely removed the 2 end prongs. A little rough around the edges, but still clipped into my 8-pin slots on the PSU and fired right up. It’s just that I’m not a hardcore hardware guy, so having absolutely no guidelines, suggestions, or support from the manufacturer was frustrating. I could easily see a company claiming that I “voided” the warranty, but with Difficulty increasing 35-35% in the time that I was waiting for a support reply, or finding/ordering adapter cables (another $53 wasted), and staring in frustration at a $1300 paperweight… in the end, I wish I’d have gone the hacksaw route sooner. It’s been working fine ever since. I’m fairly sure the “Fiesta Sale’ was just a way of clearing these out before Gen2, but any promise of a nice ROI basically vanished for all the aforementioned reasons. Even just a basic reply stating that your email is in queue or that support is backlogged would have been nice… because I could have gone my own route sooner. But we’re going on 3 weeks now and still absolutely nothing in response to my 4 emails. Good product… just hope you don’t need support.

    I agree their customer service is a work in progress that hopefully will get better.
    May I ask why a Hacksaw? I have the same issue with one of their review units they forgot to pack the adapter. That being said the pin out is identical to several modular PSU setups I was able to directly plug into an EVGA PSU and Corasir with no issues.

  7. Benjamin Jones 21/07/2014 at 08:05

    Ambitious idea, but as with other eager hradware providers in the past they are very eager to sell sell sell… but their tech support & customer relations is pretty much nonexistent. They pretty much rely on the forum and other customers to help each other out. I sent 4 emails over a 2 week period regarding my Thunder X3 (that shipper w/ useless ‘male’ PCIE connectors)… and I still haven’t received a reply. Needless to say, my unit stood as fancy paperweight for 5 days while waiting for adapters cables and I finally just ‘McGyvered; it with a hacksaw. Granted, a hacksaw isn’t generally my first choice for ‘tech support’ of a new $1300 piece of electronics… but I was fairly certain I’d never hear back from them if I did have a warranty issue… so hacksaw it was. The hardware runs great once you can get it up & running, but software support always seems a few steps behind… and hardware support leaves a lot to be desired.
