Bitcoin mining with raspberry pi - Bitcoin

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: After Butterfly Labs collapses, engineers find new jobs at 21 Inc.


After Butterfly Labs collapses, engineers find new jobs at 21 Inc.

A bitcoin miner has shipped on time. Yes, that is news. A new venture-capital backed company, 21 Inc., has released a miniature bitcoin miner that they call a "Bitcoin computer". For $399.99, you get a Raspberry Pi, an SHA-256 ASIC board, and a giant fan.
Again, this is news: normally, a manufacturer of bitcoin miners would overdesign and underengineer their equipment, or, if they managed to ship something functional, it would be so poorly engineered -- and over budget -- that it be an explosion waiting to happen and/or priced comparably to a four-door sedan.
21 Inc. has done something remarkable in the Bitcoin world: they started a company that operates like a legitimate business. They're even listed on, a company that's so strict with vendors that Nintendo was kicked off their system for not kissing enough customer ass.
Okay, enough with the praise.

This thing sucks.

The "computer" certainly deserves a place in the VC world, along with the other products consisting of wild promises and inane use cases. For the price of 4 Raspberry Pi computer kits, you get the following:
(If you have a remote desire to develop applications that use bitcoin, stop here. Go through that list and buy just those items above. You don't need anything else. If you're looking for comedy, or if you're a sucker with too much money, read on...)

Is that all I get for my money?

Those products alone don't allow you to make Bitcoin applications, apparently. You need these things, too:

How about the software demos?

It's difficult to justify developing a $400 computer that can't do much. So, to entice some customers, 21 Inc. included demos that try really hard to make customers feel inspired. Here are just a few things that 21 Inc. claims were totally impossible before their product existed:

What are the real customers saying?

The packaging is slick:
"This @21dotco computer came already opened..."
The hardware is reliable:
" must have lost power, which caused my SSH keys to become corrupted."
The software is revolutionary:
" will be more expensive to pay for your spotify subscription via your electricity bill, but a lot of people don't care."

I want to buy it anyway!

Go ahead. I won't stop you. Oh, and 21 Inc. doesn't accept bitcoins.

Raspberry Pi & ASIC combo?

I have a Raspberry Pi and want to learn about bitcoin mining so I am looking to get an ASIC miner for educational purposes. I'm not trying to spend a ton of money so I was thinking of getting a Butterfly Labs 60 GH/s off of ebay.
Are there any other ASIC miners I should be looking at that's compatible with the Raspberry Pi?

Turnkey bitcoin mining starter kits - is this a product anyone would be interested in?

I've noticed with BitCoin mining there is a lot of assumptions on background knowledge. The user needs to understand the bitcoin hardware and ecosystem, setup with a pool, in some cases there are software assumptions (understanding Linux, installing dependencies for miners, etc.). I happen to have the background and enjoy all of these pieces but some people may want a gentler introduction.
My current thought is a plug and play bitcoin miner. It would be some preconfigured machine that is guaranteed to have some non-trivial hashrate at date of purchase that the user can plug in and type "run" and be mining. It would also include plenty of instructions and how tos for the user to dive deeper and configure to their hearts content. For an illustrative example, image a raspberry pi running a butterfly labs ASIC miner preconfigured with an on device wallet, preconfigured mining pool, and a wizard or directions to walk them through changing necessary passwords.
With all of that said: is there anyone out there who would want such a product?

[WTS] 2x BFL Bitcoin Miner [7GHs and 10Ghs], power supplies, various USB Miners and Raspberry Pi Model B for controlling BFL

Can not sell for at least 6 months
I need to get these things out of my house. Everything runs perfectly and have been run for about 6 weeks [turned them off back in the summer after running too hot]. I bought them from Butterfly Labs directly at retail price. I am interested in knowing how much I can get for them. Doing some math I think I can get about $300-$350
I will not be making the sale until July, when I can actually get to them and get them shipped out. [No pictures, again just looking for reference prices]
What I have:
1x BFL Bitcoin Miner 7GHs (Likely could part for $60)
1x BFL Bitcoin Miner 10GHs (Likely could part for $90)
5x USB Block Eruptors 330MHs (Likely could part with the lot for $35)
2x AntMiner 2GHs [Never used] (Retail on Amazon for $35 each, could sell for $30 each)
1x Raspberry Pi Model B [would probably sell 4GB SD Card, USB Hub, Power Supply, and 16x2 LCD display with it] (Would sell the entire package for $70)
Willing to ship US only

Announcing - MineNinja BeagleBone Bitcoin Mining Platform

Open Source startup CoinNinja ( launches its first product geared for miners of the Bitcoin crypto-currency. The MineNinja is a turn-key device for hosting Bitcoin mining hardware, such as ASICs from Butterfly Labs, Avalon, and ASICMiner. With the bitcoin mining market rapidly moving to ASIC devices which provide more Hash power per watt, the MineNinja is the perfect compliment as it further reduces power consumption by eliminating the need for a PC.
"We chose the BeagleBone Black over the Raspberry Pi as it is truly open source. The BeagleBone design is totally open, and that cannot be said about the Pi. Furthermore we found the BeagleBone to be far more reliable, and operating temperatures to be significantly lower.”
Leveraging the power of Open Source development, the MineNinja is a great example of the Maker revolution for innovative small business. The MineNinja is small batch manufactured using the Open Source BeagleBone Black from Texas Instruments and its enclosure is 3D printed on an open source RepRap 3d Printer. The MineNinja is so low-power that it can easily be powered using only a USB port.
"We believe in the Open Source movement, all of our hardware and software is fully open source. We encourage users to make their own MineNinja, everything needed to make your own be easily found in our Github repositiory." - states Alessandro Nardella, Lead Developer at CoinNinja.
The MineNinja leverages existing open source software such as Angstrom Linux, Cgminer and the ANUBIS web front-end to Cgminer. The MineNinja uses the BeagleBone Black without any hardware modifications, which allows users to further refine the product by adding their unique contributions.
The MineNinja BeagleBone Bitcoin miner is available today in limited quantities at
