Today, the people from Ice Rock Mining, an ICO that seeks to build a mining operation inside a Soviet bunker in Khazahstan, dropped a bomb via email to their registered backers. The email sent contains a set of claims regarding them lying about the ROI (return on investment). Their page advertises it being 400%, but they now claim that it will be of around 700%. Then the email continues to throw some more amazing claims.
It is revealed that they have been proposed to acquire a new ultra-efficient and powerful miner, which is not publicly available, for their operation in the bunker. And then it directs users to a Youtube video where, supposedly, the ICO CEO, Malik Murzashev will explain in detail the capabilities and specs of this new experimental miner.
The truth is that he skims on it, making astounding affirmations and barely explains anything. Malik states that they have received numerous proposals for next-gen miners, and reveals the A1 Pro, a next-gen industrial miner from Switzerland, that has supposedly the hash power of 740 Antminer S9. If this amazing declaration is correct, this machine could be doing approx. 9680TH (13TH * 740). It is also mentioned that this miner is water cooled and that it occupies less room than 740 Antminer S9 together.
However, the fact is that all of this is only justified by a set of slideshows shown on a screen and explained by Ice Rock Mining’s CEO. Anyone can pull a trick like that from the hat on the internet right now. It could be well a set of schemes well played directed to supporters that were still unsure of investing to give them the final push. It is not a bold move on their part to show an item that cannot be verified and expect people to take them as truth, just for the fact of being declared by them. More when Kazakhstan is currently preparing to ban cryptocurrencies, mining, and ICOs. Still, if all of this is real, it is a great glimpse into the next gen mining hardware and what it would be capable of.
