It turns out that a $10,000+ pricetag is no factor for some buys, because KnCMiner has been selling Neptune bitcoin miners (which are slated to be released in early 2014) like they’re hot cakes on a brisk Sunday morning.
The news coming in is that KnC press officer Ian Chaffee says the company has sold 1,200 Neptune units to existing customers and another 1,200 units to new customers. Existing customers’ units were priced at $10,000/per and new customers paid the price of $12,999/per.
That brings the grand total to roughly $27,598,800. Undoubtedly impressive.
Not terribly long ago, it was announced that KnCMiner sold $8 million-worth of the Neptune miner in a matter of 24 hours, proving demand for bitcoin miners are at an all-time high.
It’s a great business to be in, as a matter of fact. As mining difficulty increases, manufacturers are expected to upgrade their hardware to maintain and increase hash rates. (via Business Insider)
