In the spirit of the Lunar New Year 2018, Bitmain (one of the largest producers of Bitcoin ASIC mining machines – and recently others, like Litecoin, Dash, etc) has given out coupons to past customers.

The Lunar New Year Coupons were given to all customers who had paid for an order as of February 27, 2018.

Interestingly, most of the coupons are for $100 off the purchase of a miner bought before June 1, 2018, but some coupons are for $200 off. Here’s the breakdown:

1. For EACH Antminer S9 that has been ordered and fully paid for before 23:59:59 on 26 February 2018 (GMT+8) and shipped before 23:59:59 on 22 February 2018 (GMT+8) (the shipping time shall be the one specified in www.bitmain.com), a US$100 off Coupon will be issued to the buyer.

2. For EACH Antminer S9 that has been ordered and fully paid for before 23:59:59 on 26 February 2018 (GMT+8) but was NOT shipped before 23:59:59 on 22 February 2018 (GMT+8) (the shipping time shall be the one specified in www.bitmain.com), a US$200 off Coupon will be issued to the buyer.

3. For EACH Antminer L3+/L3/T9 that has been ordered and fully paid for before 23:59:59 on 26 February 2018 (GMT+8), a US$100 off Coupon will be issued to the buyer.

4. For EACH Antminer T9+/D3 that has been ordered and fully paid for before 23:59:59 on 26 February 2018 (GMT+8), a US$200 off Coupon will be issued to the buyer.

To some, it looks like Bitmain does indeed have a conscience, and the $200 is a way to give a little bit back to customers who are still waiting on their shipments, or for those who feel like they got burned by the whole Antminer D3 fiasco that led people to try hacking the firmware to increase profitability (read here).
