Bitmain, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of cryptocurrency mining equipment, announced the opening of its service center in Irkutsk. The service center will deal with warranty maintenance and repairs of ASIC-miners, as reported by 2bitcoins.ru Internet portal.
It should be noted, that before this announcement was made by Bitmain, Russian miners could either send their mining equipment back to China for maintenance with all the associated extra costs involved or take the risks of relying on outside service providers.
This function will be maintained by qualified Bitmain staff now. All the unserviceable devices will be subject to warranty replacement.
“Users should contact support via Bitmain’s official website before sending their equipment for maintenance. First, all the related information should be clarified and application approved by a company’s staff member, and then a device may be sent. In addition, users will be able to fill in equipment repair tickets at the website,” – they have noted in Bitmain.
Bitmain’s operating surplus in 2017 was that of 3-4 billion USD. The company is reportedly preparing to open several cryptocurrency mining centers in Northwestern United States as well.
