I should note that carefully shutting down something you have spent so long building is like strangling a kitten with your bare hands.

I'm having the last node refuse connections for one hour to help people figure out something is wrong.  After that, I'm going to bring up a p2pool node with a payout address of Sean's Outpost.

Fireduck,

I went solo one month ago since I had a few more meat-space duties to follow.

It is a sad day today and I can feel all your pain.

I've enjoyed your pool since the autumn of 2011 when I first started mining on it.

You made a great pool, the best in my opinion, I was not even using backup pools when I was mining on HHTT.

That said, you're a brilliant mind and I'm sure you'll soon find new ways to improve the BTC environment and have fun.

My best wishes for a great 2014!

spiccioli,
sushi told me that data center is under maintenance and it "could be down from 10-20 hours but expected to com back online sooner."

hope to be online soon, early GBs don't have too many chances to get ROI


Hi elduce,

thanks for the info, much appreciated.

Happy New Year!

BITMAIN HAS SHIPPED THE REST OF THE ORDERS AS PLANNED ON THE 12/21. SUSHI WILL HAVE THE TRACKING # IN A DAY OR 2. HOPEFULLY

Hi cxboyminer,

I have 10 units with hosting from batch #2 (shipped December 16th), 7 are hashing since yesterday night GMT+1, do you have any info on the remaining ones?

Why doesn't Sushi respond to PMs anymore?

Thanks

spiccioli

It seems that missing units have been added while I was writing this message Smiley

I see all units hashing now, one of them hashes using a user name of "Minerhosting_bitmain" which is "strange", anyway if it has been configured with the fallback pool, I don't mind the username it's using Smiley

Thanks.

Is there an estimate of when we will see hosted units coming online?
Sushi told me 19th or 20th will be running

Hi wallydz,

are your units up and running?

earliest could be start in just under less than a day, but more likely in the 20th.

Hi Sushi,

any news about units from batch #2 with hosting option?

Thanks

Thanks!

I'm eagerly waiting Smiley

Yes, all the hosting does, is keep your miner going in a secure location.

No fuss with the PSU, home AMP size, no noise, no excess heat.  It will be kept in a nice and cold place

You tell us or me, what pool you want to use and what worker name you want it to be assigned, as wel as if you need us to over clock it.

Mining status wise, you can monitor it from your own mining pool, so you'll know if there's any down time or any fishy stuff

SUSHI


Ok, is there some contract between me and you/BITMAIN about this hosting thing?

I mean, things like: how long before a reconfiguration request gets executed, how many can I request, who is hosting/where are hosted my units and so on and so forth...

After 3 month, it's a month-to-month with 30 days notice.  $75 non/oC

No remote access, verification access will be provided when the miners are setup and ready to go


So then hosting fee renews every 3 months, correct?  =$75/ month non O/C

Hi sushi,

can we point hosted units where we want or do they hash on a private/fixed pool?

Quick calculations says each board will ROI in 60 days.  Quit whining.

the 850 EUR one ? can u please show me your math ? i would love u to be correct, maybe im wrong

I can't show my math since I didn't actually do any.   Grin

Nice that you admit it at least.

If you see "my" math you'll see break-even at july next year and it could be april or never with more or less the same outcome.

4.    If you guys stay on this trend.  More and more people will start to share my sentiment.  Confidence in bitfury products will decrease.
I share your concern. This is not the way I wanted it to go either, but I'm not the boss and do not set the rules. Hopefully in the future I will have the possibility to offer BTC ROI guarantee on my products.

Punin, we see you here as the "boss" and so we voice our disappoint at you.

I do not have other means to voice it at bitfury or tytus or whoever builds them.

A fun fact!  In September, I was ordering H Boards from MBP for ~4BTC each.  Now an H Board costs ~1BTC.

For those who think ROI matters only if it's bitcoin for bitcoin, the price has gone DOWN by 3BTC.

HA!

Dude, in September difficulty was way different (and boards still overpriced)... or do you think your mid December board will mine as much as the September one?

Quick calculations says each board will ROI in 60 days.  Quit whining.

A single board, at 30 GHs, let's hope you don't receive an EOL or underperforming one, will break-even in BTC in six months or more, even using a favorable difficulty growth.

Since BTC went from 1030 to around 920 right now, you'll need even more.

spiccioli

178  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: [ANN] Bitfury ASIC sales in EU and Europe on: December 06, 2013, 04:55:10 PM
^ sorry, but this calculation is just totally wrong. You paid an equivalent of 16,000 if I'm right. And you mined an equivalent of how much since August? 20,000 ?

No, I paid in bitcoins for a device that mines bitcoins. I did not pay in Euros, Dollars, Tulips, or any other form of currency. My ROI, in bitcoins, is a massive loss.

And this is punin's fault? Or yours? What could he have made different? What could you?

Totally our fault, we, well let's speak just for me, I was not able to see BTC price at one of its low and difficulty growing so fast!

At the same time, please, don't come here telling us you're sooo sorry to have to sell us at 850 EUR something you were soo sorry to sell us at 250 one month before!!

You had a good margin at 250, so price it at 300? 350 since BTC grew in value and you want some more? Ok, nice, but at 850 a board is a sure loss for your customer and for you as well, since your customer will start buying from some other (less greedy?) manufacturer.

Fool me once...

1. I don't set the price so please stop calling me greedy. You guys don't seem to realize what I've gone through to deliver you machines on time that made you ROI a long time ago.

I spent 246.79 btc on an Aug rig. You're insane if you think I've mined that much since then.

Please...cry me a river...

You ROI'ed in flat like a crazy...

Buying hardware with BTC is a non-sense now...buy directly BTC.

1 BTC is still 1 BTC

Guys,

when you buy a stock or a bond, do you use your own currency or a different one?

You're buying a BTC producing unit (a bond plus its interest) using BTCs even if you paid it in USD or EUR, because the same USD or EUR amount you spent on the unit could have been spent buying BTCs directly as much as you invest USD dollars on a bond which should give you more USD dollars than you spent for it in the beginning.

The only one which should be concerned with BTC's value expressed in his own currency is the one which builds the boards and has to pay for them in a currency which is not BTC.

One month ago they were able to manufacture such a board and sell it with a positive margin for 250 EUR, now they're asking, for the same board, 850 EUR, this is due to the fact that they (and those like fractal02) see BTCs as a quick scheme to get USD or EUR and so they're saying, well a board will produce half a coin in its life (a number just for the sake of discussion) and since a BTC will have a value of 1000 EUR one year from now let's ask for a fair share of its possible future value (which is what was said before: offloading the risk to the buyer).

Instead they should realize that difficulty is growing and as such each board will produce less and less BTCs and so its value (expressed in BTC OR USD OR EUR) should decrease or at least remain constant.

If BTC grows I'll be able to buy more units from them, increasing their revenue in their own currency and leaving me with some hope to be able to recoup my investment.

I am afraid nobody did reach ROI in btc terms.


Exactly and nobody will ever.

All August/September orders will NEVER reach break-even in BTC terms.

AntMiner's units were sold the other day at 4.25 BTC... a comparable unit made with BFSB harware would cost right now 8 BTC and will NEVER (again) reach break-even.

I had the hope to be able to buy around AntMiner's price VAT included, which would have made BFSB units more valuable to me because of their lower power consumption even if you need to babysit them till you reach a more or less stable functioning.
