Progress looking great.

Do you mind telling us how many developers are currently working on Sia as a full-time job?

Yes, they are quite dedicated. Check out this AMA from reddit. It was from a year ago, but it still gives you a good feel for how tight the team is: https://www.reddit.com/r/siacoin/comments/4o1tu4/we_are_the_sia_core_team_aua/

I went to their website and I'm surprised about this asic, it says 100Gh/s which is more than 100 GPUs and cost really cheap at $2.5k, I made a calculation and the ROI can be reached within 3 weeks, wanted to pre-order one but saw that they will ship before or on June 30 but in 2018 Sad

Code:
Shipping costs are $35 per unit for US/Europe/China Customers and $70 per unit for anywhere else.
Orders will ship on or before June 30, 2018.

Update: When trying to purchase: an unknown error has occurred and has been reported to the developers.

The ROI will probably be good, but not so short as 3 weeks. More probably 2-3 months. You are probably missing 2 factors:

- 1 obelisk added to the network is nothing, but if 10.000 obelisks are added, the network size will go 5x approximately, and so the difficulty. Thus, profitability will be 5 times less than today's

- Today's block reward is 190000, but in one year it will be 135000

Of course, if more than 10000 ASICs are sold, other manufacturers get there before them or second batches are delivered (while they are promising 2nd batch will never be delivered during a window of 6 weeks) the calculations will change

For the problem you are having in the purchase, I recommend you getting into the Slack or the Reddit and ask there. A lot of people had that problem too yesterday, but I think it was solved.

It is completely crazy to buy an asic that will be delivered 1 year later. Things move too fast in this field, one year is an era.

No block explorer with the ability to check an address's balance is available yet. Some independent devs are working on that.

In the meantime, just use the Sia client to check it

Good to hear somebody is working on upgrading the block explorer to add address searching. Problem with using the Sia client is it's a disadvantage for  storing siafund tokens in a cold wallet , and checking the 3.9% fee payments for your address is important. I've got a couple of siafunds in a cold wallet, and I've absolutely no idea how many sia coins they've generated in fees yet.

I agree with both of you I have had same concerns in my previous posts in the thread. Good luck to those who paid for the 430 units presale so far...

One year is really long in the crypto world, things move so fast that we don't know how far will go Sia next year, will it be available or will it shut down. I simply can't predict how much will be the difficulty after a year but when these asics come in market things will change too much. I have purchased 285k SIA at 2.2BTC, have I made a good decision? Price has been dropped a lot now!

Well, the day here is half over and no news release yet for the remainder of the items on the website road map scheduled for release in June 2017. They must have missed the mark, but the day isn't over yet. But, I'm thinking they missed the mark. That would explain the current price and the lower prices to come over the next few weeks.

Taek has indicated they'll release the final v1.3 next Tuesday if anything else happens. Devs are very busy with the pre-reserve process of the ASIC and they are polishing some minor issues that testers of the RC2 have found, so I don't blame them for missing the mark for one week.

Frankly I don't think any trend on the market value of the coin is related to a delay on the software release. Nothing personal against speculators and "investors", but from my experience, most of them don't understand how Sia works or even what a blockchain is... So I find difficult they care about releasing or not features as "file repair" or "host pruning"  Roll Eyes

I think ASIC hardware will increase the coins worth a lot. People prove they thrust sia coin an put 2500 US in plus electricity.

But with this miner you can only mine SC, nothing else. For example, a bitmain antminer can mine bitcoin, zetacoin, digibyte, many more.

Sounds like to me they are going to finance the ASIC production with buyer's money, mine the coin for 6 months and run up the difficulty and make a ton of money and then ship out the used units to the purchasers. This has been a pattern, time and time again with mining hardware. That is if they ever ship anything at all. It is easy to put up a website, make fabulous claims, take people's BTC and then disappear. Just a thought, Buyers Beware
