Purchase Options

Overview

Obelisk is offering a sale targeted to purchasers of SC1 and DCR1 units in all batches sold so far. If you're an SC1 purchaser, you can buy additional hashing boards for your Siacoin miner to increase its hashing power.

If you are a DCR1 purchaser, in addition to buying Siacoin hashing boards, we have added additional options if you no longer wish to receive your DCR1 units. This includes converting them to an SC1 or allowing Obelisk to buy back your units. Read on for more details.

Purchase an SC1 Hashing Board, Gen 1 (Batch 1)

This option is listed as Obelisk SC1 Hashing Board, Gen 1 on the Orders page.

If you purchased your SC1 miner in Batch 1, your unit comes with two boards preinstalled. This option allows you to purchase a third hashing board for your unit. This will give your miner extra hashing power by using the third board connector on Gen 1 (Batch 1) SC1 units.

Batch 1 SC1 miners have 15 chips per board, so this will bring your unit up to 45 total hashing chips.

Alternatively, if you own a Batch 1 DCR1 unit, you can remove your DCR1 boards and add one, two, or three SC1 boards.

  • Price: $699
  • Estimated hash rate: 250-350 GH/s
  • Estimated power consumption: 200-250 W
  • Estimated ship date: February-March 2019

Shipping per board is $30 and it can be sent to your address or a colocation facility.

Purchase an SC1 Hashing Board, Gen 2 (Batches 2-5)

This option is listed as Obelisk SC1 Hashing Board, Gen 2 on the Orders page.

If you purchased your SC1 miner in Batches 2-5, you can buy a second hashing board for your unit. This will give your miner extra hashing power by using the second board slot on Gen 2 (Batches 2-5) SC1 units.

Batch 2-5 SC1 miners have 32 chips per board, so this will bring you up to 64 total hashing chips.

Alternatively, if you own a Batch 2-5 DCR1 unit, you can remove your DCR1 boards and add one or two SC1 boards.

  • Price: $1,499
  • Estimated hash rate: 500-700 GH/s
  • Estimated power consumption: 400-450 W
  • Estimated ship date: February-March 2019

Shipping per board is $30 and it can be sent to your address or a colocation facility.

Convert a DCR1 Batch 2-5 Unit to an SC1 Batch 6 Unit

This option is listed as Obelisk DCR1-to-SC1 Paid Conversion on the Orders page.

You can convert your Batch 2-5 DCR1 order into a Batch 6 SC1 order. You're agreeing that we will not ship the DCR1 miner or its hashing boards and in its place will send you a Batch 6 SC1 Siacoin miner, to be manufactured and shipped once Batches 2-5 are complete.

Batch 6 SC1 units will be the same as Batch 2-5. They will contain a single board with 32 chips.

  • Conversion Price: $1,199
  • Estimated hash rate: 500-700 GH/s
  • Estimated power consumption: 500 W
  • Estimated ship date: February-March 2019

You've already paid for shipping when you made your DCR1 purchase, so there is no additional shipping charge.

For the purposes of our Compensation Policy and the amount you'll be paid, your effective shipping date will be set to December 9th, 2018 (the date this sale closes).

Sell your DCR1 Back to Obelisk

This option is listed as Obelisk DCR1 Buyback on the Orders page.

If you no longer wish to receive your DCR1 unit, Obelisk will buy back your unit at $300. Additionally, we will still provide the compensation for missing the estimated shipping date (as per our Compensation Policy), which is currently valued at about $125 per unit.

  • Buyback amount: $300 + compensation

Your buyback payment will be sent to your specified Bitcoin address by January 31, 2019.

For the purposes of our Compensation Policy, your effective shipping date will be set to the date we send your buyback payment.
