Or do you think there will be ASIC only pools created? At some point the pool theory just circles back around doesn't it?

All of the pools will lose all of the GPU miners, and will only be left with ASIC and a few FPGA miners.   Nothing but a Minirig 'SC' from BFL will mine fast enough to solo.   Or if you have a whole bunch of singles.   Every Jalapeno sold will join a pool.

Thanks for the answer. So you think the current pools will organically change on their own. Makes sense.

Theres nothing "Organic" about it
Anyone with <30gh is going to be aimed at a pool once the ASIC's "hit the floor"
GPU miners are only going to stay if they get free electricity, and will (or so i've heard) Switch to LTC mining instead

If you had the only ASIC device that you knew of would you still pool it from day one?
