I seriously hope you aren't buying a ton of these with profit in mind...

BTW, I will buy 10 if it prices at 1 Bitcoin.
As 2 Bitcoin, at most I can afford 1 USB.

Quoted for those who think ASICMINER is charging too much.   Grin

Of course everyone wants them cheap, but these are the only ASIC devices available right now, and there is a limited number that can be produced. They are going to sell out @ BTC2 as fast as they can ship them. Nothing is free, this isn't a get rich quick scheme for customers.

I guess I shouldn't be surprised if they actually sell these out. The world is FULL of idiots... Oh well. Your money...

Reality check: There are people in this world who have real jobs and are not mining to feed their families. They just want to be part of something awesome like bitcoins.

It isnt for customers, it is for the manufacturer...

I'd prefer to see these mass produced and mass distributed worldwide for $40ish, but I guess that money talks.

Your GPUs could be freed from calculating hashes and resume rendering for you.

I think I love you!

As someone who has to do a lot of CAD and rendering this would be great....

... if it wasn't priced at more than a Jalapeno with significantly less hashrate.

Except those don't exist. Not until BFL actually ship them. Spare me the discussion of 6 ppl receiving them. That is like a satoshi to a bitcoin of their total orders, Simply doesn't count. And if you considered the new lowest amount to relay a transaction suggestion. Then they Literally don't count.

The USB stick miner is going to bring BitCoin to the masses, beyond the geeks and hardcore or occasional miners.  This will make it mainstream.

Make this THE toy to buy for Christmas!!!

Congrats on making history!


How good Christmas  present it would be if you stick it t the back of your pc and and let it mine? Where is the fun in that? Are you going to stare at it all day long and wait for blue led blinks?

At the end of the day it is a tool to mine and it always will be. It cant be used for anything else. It will only make to mainstream if its priced right ($40-$50) a pop. How many people from outside bitcoin community will be willing to pay over $200 for it? Well not many as I have already spoken to people about it and reaction is almost the same.. to expensive.

Cute.

The correct price is what people will pay.

I'm not buying at this price because I expect the price will drop a lot.

Can these be used for scrypt --litecoins, feathercoins?

There are plenty of SHA-256 Coins you can mine instead. For example freicoin has the same profitability like feathercoins have in the moment. So if you want to mine other coins you can.

Anyone know where I could find a cheap usb hub that will handle the increased (above spec.) power needs?

I would check out amazon and search for hubs with usb loading connectors that can deliver more ampere. Used for loading up smartphones and similar. For example something like this: UNITEK Y-3181. Its usb 3 hub, thats probably not needed but it has loading ports. When you found a working hub you still can search on google shopping for lower priced units of this model.

Christmas presents are presented from others. And many miners got much money from mining bitcoins and can afford to give away such presents. Those persons doesnt have the profit in mind anymore but the safety of the network is more important. Because this safety on the other hand is protecting their bitcoins.
Anyway... there will be enough buyers so complaining about the price is pointless.

Of course they will be cheap in a year, but each of our USBs will have mined ~ 2.5 - 3 Bitcoins by then.

Given the price and the power, I see this more as a way to make Bitcoin more distributed than a way to make money.
Though I still think it would be best if Bitcoin only ran on commodity hardware.

You also have to remember that some of us don't really want to make insane profits but rather want a way to retrieve bitcoin not connected with the exchanges.  Mining takes the bitcoin attached to my identity and converts it into bitcoin not attached to my identity.  If I can break even then that's worth it to me.

Also the dimensions of the PCB and heatsink.

If anyone in the US is planning to do a group order, throw me a message. Have some investors who want to pick up a few of these for our farm (I run the farm, they pay for hardware and pull dividends, like a ghetto ASIC Miner Cheesy).
