Alydian, a CoinLab spin-off, files for bankruptcy
CoinLab, an incubator for Bitcoin businesses, announced the launch of its first incubated company, Alydian, back in August.
By early November, Alydian was more than $3.6 million in debt, and on Nov. 4 the company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in a Seattle court.
The company closed with less than $50,000 in assets. Alydian’s goal had been to offer enterprise-scale Bitcoin mining by allowing customers, even those without technical expertise, to buy and host Bitcoin mining rigs.
“The Alydian team has worked diligently over the past year and we are excited to be the first in this industry to offer multi-terahash-speed turnkey mining systems,” CoinLab CEO Peter Vessenes said in an August press release. According to the company website, which is still online, customers could pay $350,000 per year for 5TH/s mining and $650,00 for 10TH/s mining.
