We've finally re-launched on Havelock (albiet as a BTC-denominated entity):https://www.havelockinvestments.com/fund.php?symbol=HASH
Take the time and read up on what we're doing. I believe we're in a very unique position in the US market to take advantage of the lack of resellers/ect to really do something great for crypto-businesses.
What is the offering:
Big Trend Capital Investments, Limited is a duly-formed Hong Kong based limited company with a duly-appointed director with offices referenced on Page 1 of the Havelock Prospectus.
Big Trend Capital Investment Limited (BTCI), a Hong Kong Limited company has entered into a consulting services agreement with Coin Services LLC, an Ohio based cryptocurrency mining company, and hardware reseller, which owns and operates its trademarked “BuyAHash” service. As part of the consulting services, BTCI plans to help Coin Services raise additional capital for expansion by investing BTCI’s own and raised capital into Coin Services. Capital raised from the private placement will be utilized to grow the business in a variety of areas.
BTCI is a member of Coin Services LLC. Any investment made into BTCI shall be guaranteed by a pro rata amount of membership units of Coin Services LLC held by BTCI. Should the amount of investment be above the amount of membership units currently held by BTCI, BTCI shall obtain additional membership units from Coin Services LLC.

Note: Any reference to us, we, our below in italics shall mean Coin Services LLC.
Our target markets excluding internal mining facilities include retail consumers of cryptocurrency hardware products by leveraging our contracts for exclusive and non-exclusive hardware. Additionally, we have concluded contracts to deliver cryptocurrency mining hardware to large PC retailers such as Micro Electronics (TM) via wholesale contracts.
By utilizing volume purchasing power through hardware fabrication and acquisition, we can grow our own, very profitable in-house mining farm, as well as sell excess supplies to an emerging $1 billion market, with very little competition. In 2013, we grossed approximately $450,000 USD, with gross profits of approximately $75,000. We note that the 2013 P&L statement represented at most, 9 calendar months, and 12-month gross revenues exceeded $750,000 USD.
Coin Services LLC, an Ohio-based Limited Liability Company (Company #2191043) was formed on April 12, 2013. The registered address is 9051 Broadway Street Stoutsville, OH 43154.
A Different Take on the Traditional Mining Company
In the Cryptocurrency economy, dozens of mining and crypto securities have come and gone, some due to incompetence, but many through corporate malfeasance. Our goal is to change the paradigm of the Bitcoin economy by creating the largest eCommerce and retail presence in the largest Bitcoin market in the world - America through a multi-tiered strategy that allows us to diversify our business strategy to the changing whims of the market.
When Everyone is Mining, Sell Shovels
In early 2013, Coin Services, LLC started as a novel PMB through a few investors, eventually listing on Litecoin Global to sell contracts on the market. Due to delays with electricity/HVAC deployment, we started selling hardware to generate income while we couldn't mine. The result was far beyond what we anticipated: Within two months, we had sold well over $100,000 USD in hardware, and were able to turn hardware at incredible rates through various channels such as EBay, and our e-Store, eventually growing to offer products on Amazon as well.
However, due to volume, we were financially constrained on how much purchasing power we could leverage against large companies such as ASICMiner or BitFury. Capital raised from this offering will help us with our multi-tiered strategy to become the face of Bitcoin retail in the US and throughout the world, replacing faceless, nameless, and unreliable hardware companies with a world-class distribution facility, located near America's largest distribution hub, Columbus Ohio. This allows us to leverage very affordable rates to distribute products, as Columbus is world-renown for being epicenter of American population - over 2/3rds of all Americans live within 500 miles of our facility.
Along the way, we've also secured lucrative contracts with one of America's largest computer retailers - Micro Center, a Hilliard OH based company. As of today, you can walk into any Micro Center store and purchase products that we've worked with our factories to produce. We need capital and infrastructure to continue to grow this relationship, and this is where Havelock and you come into the picture, thanks to Big Trend Capital Investment.
Cheaper Shovels Mean Cheaper Mining
Of the many offerings available in the mining industry, we believe we present a very unique opportunity to investors. Due to a large focus on retail products, we will seek to leverage massive buying power with reliable vendors to deploy to our current and forthcoming facilities to ensure that we can offer both a fiat and crypto hedge on investments - mining to make the coins, and selling the machines to make fiat to cover costs, and return dividends to shareholders.
Thanks to our location, the new facility we're in negotiations to purchase offers some of the lowest worldwide prices for electricity as low as $0.04/KWh, and a significant amount of capacity available for us to expand. The facility we are seeking to lease will afford us up to 68,000 square feet of mining and product distribution space to start with, and enough acreage to expand if we breach capacity, as well as loading docks for distribution to major retailers like Micro Center.
At this juncture, we'd prefer to be nebulous on which machines we'd seek to leverage for internal mining, as we have not done proper cost analysis on miners from all major companies. We would note, though, that volume purchasing power through most hardware manufacturers results in 20-40% off of typical "Retail" prices that most mining securities state as what they are paying for their equipment. Additionally, we do not have a timetable on when the facility can have full capacity prepared for hashing - which is estimated to be at or around 1MW.

Share Offering Information
Tentatively, BTCI is looking to issue 100,000 shares via a VIPO on Havelock. Shares will be released in tiers between (approximately) 0.021 BTC and 0.025 BTC for a sum total of approximately 2,400 BTC if our goals are met. This will allow BTCI to invest into Coin Services to aggressively pursue contracts with BitMain, ASICMiner, ZeusMiner, AlcheMiner, Gridseed, and non-ASIC manufacturers of mining accessories to dominate the American and Worldwide markets.
Corporate Governance and Due Diligence
Currently, corporate governance is controlled by the owner/operators of this listing. However, we will immediately seek after IPO completion to create a 3 to 5 member Corporate Governance Board (CGB) consisting of eligible shareholders of this offering to steer and advise Coin Services LLC. Optimally, we will bring the list of eligible candidates to a shareholder vote within 3 months of the IPO for a one-year term.
Elected CGB members will be required to make themselves available for expense-paid board meetings at company headquarters to review company documents, P&L statements, and company procedures and inventory to verify legitimacy of the offering, as well as provide any and all due diligence required of non-CGB shareholders.
