Bitmain could be trying to crush the competition as their miners are now much cheaper than all the other miner manufacturers and the efficiency is about same as all the others have caught up.

I suspect thats part of the reason. But things can still work out somehow. The D3 was bad but the antminer A3 was well handled. The first A3 batch users have already broke even. I hope that all miners will be well handled. The fact that they give out coupons and gave fair options to early X3 buyers also tells me they can find solutions too.

Just my 2 cents.

Selling 100 dollar coupons (8units expire 11th June, 14 units expire 1st july) and 125 dollar coupon (2 unit exp 30th June). Selling at 20% of value

I don't understand the lamentations about a lower price. If you bought higher I get it, you feel like you got jammed. But that's the breaks. As far as how it will affect mining, it's good for mining as far as I can tell. Listen I noob paid 4700 for my first s9 in December on the secondary market and I'm not complaining. They went up to 6500 after that, and I felt pretty good about it. Now they're less than half that, but what if they didn't drop? Who knew? You take your chances. After my second one at 1850 usd I told myself I paid 7k for 2 to make myself feel better  Grin

More miners, more machines in spare bedrooms and garages and sheds all over the world, let's get it going. I don't see the problem.

Me too, noob paid usd$4000 for E9+ in Jan, and usd$2320 for S9 and value paid $1188 for M3.
Average them out and feel slightly better.

But the problem is, btc price stagnated and under-valued, plus hashing difficulty increases, whereas the electricity cost is still high for me. Plus the shipping cost, taxes and hosting fee, I am running the miners at a loss right now.

Was very tempted to get 1 more S9 but it would seriously undermine my relationship with my missy now  Sad

I'm in the same boat. Another month or so and I can expand again with another s9. Hopefully low prices will continue. I've already got the cord and the space ready for it.

At current btc price, might as well buy straight from exchanges and hodl till profitable to sell.

Mining is slow and it is subjected to the same amount of risk (if BTC dips further) for lesser reward.

If the current rewards continues riding at under $0.50 / per day / per TH, I do not suspect difficulty to keep increasing.
Just look at bitcoinwisdom and their difficulty predictions... We should be holding at roughly where we are for the next little while. The next prediction has it as going up by less than 1.5%.

I personally think what has happened in the last 4 weeks when it comes to ASIC machine costs, BTC price and difficulty is great for weeding out those that were trying to make a quick buck and great for the long term health of the [Suspicious link removed]dluck trying to flip those S9s purchased for $2000+ USD now...

I just wish that the ASIC machines on the market right now were more robust. I find it extremely strange that Bitmain won't offer brand new hashboards. They would honestly make a killing and would make more money selling the parts than the whole units themselves. I could see them having no problem selling S9 boards for $400US and they would sell hundreds based on the fact that there are countless people out there right now out of warranty with dead hashboards in their machines.

They can also just force people to buy new miners which makes them more money still, which is what they seem to be doing. I don't know when the last time they sold hashboards and parts for miners was, but I think they stopped around the time of the S7. Repair services like MyRig/Bitmainwarranty are out there and reputable, and it is possible to find hashboards (albeit most are used) on eBay, though prices there seem to be upwards of $600.

Bitmain's got so many customers that they can afford to use cheap materials to make their miners cheaper and increase their profit margins, other companies like Avalon offer much more reliable and robust machines than Antminer units. It's sad but true. Their first few iterations of the Antminer like the S1 up to the S3 were pretty good, then they started falling from there.

Just received the new coupon mail too.

It's so nice to see this ''cheap'' prices and coupons  Roll Eyes
when you have recently bought s9 at high prices ( high price, high import taxes where I live ) , in addition to having lost in change because of the BCH drop rate ( because you can not do USD wire )

Tomorrow one S9 purchased , two S9 and a L3+ for free ?  Undecided And a Bitmain keychain ?

But no hashboards available as buy part ( yes I know when s9 will be at 400 usd a single coupon will be enought to buy 3 HB )
Thanks bitmain.
