It is worth noting these are a really good deal, especially if you are worried or think that it is possible that the BFL boards will not ship on time or will be delayed. It is also worth noting that with the present rate of increase in the price of coin, it is entirely possible these will pay themselves off sooner rather than later. Especially if you start to see people "insuring" their BFL purchases against further difficulty increases by buying Bitcoin around August/September.

Do you agree with me that 90% Bitcoin price is gonna at least double in the coming couple of months?

Its not really the ASIC announcement that made me decide to sell all my Icarus boards. I've already decided to sell more than half of my mining farm a couple of weeks before the ASIC announcement. The main reason is that am moving to another country soon, and it would be imposible to move with 30 FPGAs + GPUs without being taxed. I don't wanna take such risk. More over during the relocation my mining farm is gonna be offline for at least a week.

I got nothing! There was this voice in my head, telling me not to buy (yet). Why pay BFL with Bitcoin if I can tripple their value with Pirate at the same time. Those who ordered first were always the ones that had to wait longest... Undecided

I thought about it in the exact same manner! thats why I end up ordering 2 BFL SC Singles instead of 10 !

BFL is supposed to be taking preorders today. ASICs are bringing huge changes to Bitcoin, ones that could even effect non-miners. I believe all of these changes will be for the best in the long run though. Now we can just hope that the openasic project turns something out in the next few months!

Yes, and they took preorders in Bitcoin primarily, and some estimates now put the amount of Bitcoin trying to be cashed out by their processor at $300,000 worth, which may be difficult for them to process in the near future. Since these preorders cannot be reversed and the estimated cost for an ASIC run is $3-5 million for all three devices and the time for development could be as long as 6 months or more, there is a very high likelihood we may see BFL not have enough money to do ASIC development for several months and the ASIC itself for several more months. In all, it could easily be a year or more before ASIC drops.

I think FPGA devices still have some play, but obviously these are all things to consider when ordering or implementing new designs. I know I would still buy Lancelots if they were developed, though I'd probably still prefer a quad-miner of some sort.

we (my team and some other core people) consider BFL have not spend any money on ASIC development yet. BFL's business flow is: announce dreamlike specs -> taking pre-orders -> find people to development -> if succeed, release and shipment. if fail, run. BFL sell products at super low price because their customer take all risks.
so now BFL is just collecting money for their ASIC project and avoid current delivery pressure (means they are running out cheap FPGAs).
if this business model succeeded, i will classified this as a shame of human intelligence.

and let me explain what is the "now in final stage development" mean. in ASIC design flow, this means RTL design is nearly finish. as a SOC or some other complex ASIC, RTL design and testing will take most of the development time. but mining ASIC is not a RTL complex design, it is a high computing density chip. most of the work is physical design, packaging and thermal design. RTL is less than 10% of the entire work.

What does the developer say? Do you have a solution for the bitstream yet? I'd love to buy one or two Lancelots rather sooner than later. Do you think it's risky to invest in FPGAs now? I'm not so worried about the energy efficiency but to achieve a high hash rate in order to still be able to compete at all with ASICs next year. I'm assuming the time for ROI is more than one year, or isn't it?

nearly finish.
the price will let the ROI in ~6 months.

Sorry ngzang! I totaly disagree with you! once again you are attacking BFL! you've done the same 6 months ago before they start shipping BFL singles! I've followed your direction at that time and invested in Icarus more than BFL singles! Now please take a close look at my position wich is similar to any of your clients/fans: 12 Icarus boards that will be worthless in couple of months and 2 BFL Singles that been paid to be upgraded to ASIC in 3 months. I know that by now you probably have invested a lot of time and effort in Lancelot and am sure its gonna be a piece of art as Icarus is! But that doesn't give you the right to turn your clients/fans into the wrong direction! BFL ASIC is real and it will hit the network soon! it may be delayed a couple of months but be sure it will be eating the network in the first month of 2013 if not earlier!

Now the question is, instead of attacking BFL! what can you do for your clients/fans? Did you even think about offering your clients a trade in program for Icarus to Lancelot? you didn't! but BFL did!

Do you really think BFL is giving you a deal with the trade in.  First off, they kept everyone's funds for months without shipping anything.  Then when they start shipping a small amount of the equipment, they tell everyone they are going to sell ASICS.  It doesn't take a smart person to figure it out but they just made you lock up more money for who knows how long this time.  I'm sure BFL could have sold their ASICS products for less money but then they wouldn't make you feel like you are getting a deal.  BFL is full of S***.  

Yes I do! and am not the only one!

Lol, and that is why the suckers keep lining up at the door.  

Do you mean the lending service door?

Yes I do! and am not the only one!

Funny how one can see the factual as hypothetical (your FPGA units making you money for some time now) and the hypothetical as factual (past BFL promises replaced with future BFL promises while already being out of real money with nothing to show for it). You should be thankful for the Icarus boards for they are the only that make you money at the moment and probably will be for a long time even if BFL does ship Asics sometime next spring.

I totally agree with you! Today Icarus is extremely profitable and will continue to be up until the block reward switches to 25 BTC or ASIC hits the network! But there is a missing part in your equation! what if BFL really delivers ASIC in October? or even January? By then Icarus will produce between minimum 1 maximum 5% BTC of what its currently producing! and if am lucky enough I would be able to sell it out for 100 USD! The value that I will lose in the hardware will be higher than the mined BTC value in the coming months!

I forgot to tell you that I've just bought 6 Icarus boards last month @ 500$ including shipment and tax! The hypothetical vision makes more sense for me here! If the factual vision makes more sense for you or anyone who is still interested in Icarus, I offer my newly arrived 6 Icarus boards @ 380 USD!
