This might be a rather dumb question, but can this miner also be used to mine other currencies? Is it possible to mine for example LTC with this miner?

 No. Only SHA256 based applications. LTC and most others use Scrypt.

As Xian01 said, only SHA256, which is PPCoin, Freicoin, Terracoin and some merged-mined(=non important) ones.

Very cool, but that doesn't change that you are a SCAMMER just check his trust feedback guys. Be careful buy his USB sticks.

Scammer is not the right word to use here.
One Block Erupter is missing & dispute going on.

That's setup in the photo will probably cost you well over $14,000 and has a total lower net hash than a BFL little single $1,299.

Thats actually only 58units... now running 76  Wink

It would be cool if you didn't have to buy your BFL single last year and probably not even receive it yet, lets say BTC was worth $7 each when people paid, so 1299$ was lets say 185BTC...... do you think they will ever mine that back with their BFL single?

This shows again how skilled the guys at Asicminer are.

It's very well priced so it isn't unfair for the buyers OR the shareholder (maximising earnings).

The min. order amount makes it uncomplicated for AM and opens a nice retailer market with good competition.

i'm sorry, it is overpriced, at least i think it is.
2BTCs is alots of money, i will like to buy this,i have 2HD7950 XFX,i would loveto replace one of m 7950 with 2, 3 of those blocks erupters, but is way too overpriced.

i get it u need to pay the investiment, oh wait,  wait didn't u guys have used kickstarter? to laucher this project? so YOU didn't actually loose any moner, or support with your money at all, so why so overpriced?
and how can some one with single PC buy 200-300 bulk orders?
even 10 in a bulk order is so much,i will have to sell one of my lung for that.
Please sell it in single pieces, i would love to buy, if i could sell, or i can even trade my XFX R7950 3GB GDDR5 (new card, almost two months now!) for this

Ouch when difficulty just hit 19 million. The block eruptor is now making just $0.75 a day (0.0078btc) at current prices. Forecast 1 year from today now is to just make $90 profit in total if the price remains around $100/btc.  This means in 12 months from today this usb stick will not even have mined 1 btc, despite costing 2btc+, with difficulty rises of 30% a month or more.

These are turning into a far worse deal quicker than i imagined!

As long as the difficulty is lower than 800 million (assuming a btc/USD price of 100$), those devices make profit.

With a break-even of what, 800 years?

exactly - these devices are probably only good for mining alt coins by this point. SHA256 alt coins particularly.

You are correct, I beg you pardon.

That's the harsh reality.

BTW, are you really in contact with KnC miner for the development of cgminer for Jupiter and Saturn? Can you update us on the timeline if it's true? And sorry for the off-topic.

Actually BFL hashpower is exactly ZERO until they ship, which likely will never happen for most units.

Yes they contacted us. No I don't know what stage they're up to.
