Thanks in advance!

Yes, the Orange Pi Primes are the boards used in the official Skyminers.

Twisted lan cables would be better to limit interference.

Amazing resource.. So I just ordered everything from Alibaba. Only came across SKY COIN last week but I've been in crypto for years and this project is really capturing my imagination. The hardware will be a month before it arrives but I would love some help when it does (I'm not technical at all). Also in terms of construction, is there a detailed instruction for how to put the casing together?? Thanks

Wow. Nice find. 

@LDN, can you confirm if it looks the same as the original switch?

LDN, something different. You said you'll look at the s/w? I have not seen anything from your side re your software effort?

That looks like the original switch but isn't it only 100mb capable?  I'd think the recommendation would be for a 1 gigabit switch since we're talking 800mbs max with 8 orangepi's.  You probably wont need more than 100mbs unless your connection is greater than that I guess.  any recommendations?

I'm thinking the female end could be cut off the power splitter to attach to the PSU assuming there is enough length to reach all the pi's.

30mm I think it says in the skyminer's user guide parts list or assembly instructions

isn´t the 100mbps limit per port? which would be no problem at all since that´s the limit per orange pi anyway.
