There are, however, some concerns I have. First, running an online store is a far cry from running a Chia fork or other blockchain. I am not sure how they have managed their payment systems, and a lot of exploits tend to arrive when new payment systems go online. I am hoping, for their sake, this is well tested. Second, customer service can be a really time consuming job as part of running an online store. I know their team is good, but it won’t be for long if they get bogged down on order support.
I for one, do not have nearly enough HDD to order anything off the store so in order to even try to use HDD I would first need to go to xt.com where they are traded, buy some, and then use that to buy stuff from HDD. The exchange they mention in their announcement below is “market conditions” which right now is 0.35 USD / HDD according to their store page, which means you need to have farmed a LOT to buy an HDD or anything cool. I only have 38 or something.
I do plan on checking this out, but it probably won’t be much of a secret shopper situation since I cleverly use my real name here. I presume everything is being drop shipped so they don’t need to worry about inventory, otherwise the logistics here will be very difficult for them. Let me know in the comments if you end up buying anything from them and if you use USD or HDD.
Edit: seems to only allow US shipping for now. Will have to wait for my beer koozie I guess.
