Good price point! The ASIC is all aligning Smiley.

Shame about the delivery date. Definitely would have preordered if you could somehow match BFL.

Slightly confused about the preorder however. Are the preorders receiving sample units?
Or do preorders get mining units in 2013?

Exciting. But any chance this could be made more efficient? Your target of 100 Mhash/Joule is poor compared to plans announced by the competition (bASIC, BFL).

So if something fails we are out 70-40% of the money? Also initial batch run is expected from 1/31-3/31 or is that mass production run?

sorry about this fuzziness information. will re-declare it later.

yes, it's possible for a much higher power efficient. but we should post a  conservative value on our first SPEC.

FPGA development team will continue their work.

host PC NOT required
---so there's a controller embedded? it would be upgradeable, right? I hope the final product will support stratum mining protocol.
