I’m not sure about that as (correct me if i’m wrong), Bitmain is the only manufacturer in Mainland China. Inno I’m pretty sure is Hong Kong based and although same country technically different rules apply. I think if they were required to do it they would have already posted it.
Bitmain aleady has your name and address. I just gave them an expired Drivers License and they marked me as verified. I still have some concerns but my main one was who/which regulatory was asking for this. I thought is was US/EU which I 100% do not want them to have. If it’s China making sure purchasers are not nationals or reselling to nationals then I’m more on the fence.
I’d like more options in Asic TBH, In GPU world we have 2 which is really just 1. Now again in Asic land we have 2, one is excellent sol to watts but is maybe probably pre-mined? ( is there hard proof on that yet) the other is not as efficient but is cheaper and requires you to give up identification. I consider asicminer to be fake so they dont count.
There are options although these Asic manufacturers need to be shown who’s actually running the show. So for 2020 either go POS or give us another hardware reset but this time the hardware should be created by ZEC.
Design an asic and license it out the same nvidia does or the way Arm does it. Or do it in house. It should be this or POS. Either way if you treat hashrate as equal to currency then ZEC should be in control of it’s inflation not Inno amd nvidia bitmain.
