8x difficulty is uncommon - but not unexpected.
10x difficulty is rare.
2x or 3x times difficulty is expected regularly.

It's all basic 101 statistics ...

I do wonder if there have been any university studies of bitcoin hashing statistics.
It's really an amazingly large sample of random probability - I'd guess probably larger than anything ever before it.

We've been down on luck for the last couple of days, but look at this quirky bit that I stumbled upon (with our luck turning?) when I checked to see how we were doing!

PLUS shipping BTC 0.44 UPS and BTC 0.69 DHL (to UK! May be different to other places.)
EDIT: - Apparently shipping goes DOWN the more units you order!

Oddly, it's much cheaper with UPS than DHL.  There is also a minimum order quantity of two units.

No more free shipping as it seems.
Of course Bitmain still purchases in USD so at some point there's no more margin for freebies.

Do you guys think that BTC may have found a new support level around 330usd?

No. There is no such thing. It is very volatile and will be for some time.

Batch 10 of the S3+ has just gone on sale for BTC0.58.

Thanks for the heads up!

However, I have my eyes on the S4.  I'm waiting for the price of BTC to go up enough [While still mining BTC as well] to get my hands on an S4.  I have 10 S3+'s with 6 more brand new S3+'s on the way that I purchased in auctions on eBay TODAY.  Got 1 S3+ for $265.00 w/free shipping. Got 2 more for $511.99 w/free shipping.  I just won another auction for 3 more S3's for $760.33 w/free shipping.  All of them are NEW Batch 9's.

Yes, I know I'm paying more on ebay than what I would pay for them from Bitmaintech.  HOWEVER, those units were IN HAND and ready to ship NOW!  TIME IS MONEY!  Difficulty is going up again very soon too.  I needed them yesterday!!!

Getting nothing but S4's from here on out.  I did not want to touch the 1.8 BTC I've earned already since I first started mining September 22nd [13 blocks we hit that day, my first day at this].  Look to have 23.7 TH/s mining away downstairs when it's all said and done [16 S3+'s and 8 S4's].

So about a week ago we were at 6.6ph and my payouts were great.  Now at 8.1ph and payouts have been cut by almost a 1/4.  i understand new faster miners are coming out every day but a peta hash is alllllot of power added in just over a week.  Did someone hit the Bitcoin lottery or something.

OK 500 TH cloud mining cheapest i could find was around $295,000 for one year.  At 500 TH at the current Price Diff etc thats around $76,000 a month. 12 months thats around $900,000 (minus diff increases etc) so yeah it works.

counter intuitive diff has gone up 16.2% since batch 9 shipped and now batch 10 costs more  then previous batch because of no free shipping i assume due to the fact btc price has dropped lol now this batch s3 looks like 5-6 months roi as opposed to prev 3-4 months o well Cry

Just in case someone missed this, an update to cgminer for the S3 from the author here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=671189.msg9134744#msg9134744
I assume that the process is the same, i.e

1. SSH and log into the S3
2. cd /usr/bin
3. mv cgminer cgminer.bak
4. wget http://ck.kolivas.org/apps/cgminer/antminer/s3/4.6.1-141009/cgminer
5. chmod +x cgminer
6. reboot

PS. Some people say you only need to restart cgminer and do not need to reboot.

EDIT: Hashrates even seem a little  faster after a few minutes... APPARENTLY!

My sentiments EXACTLY!

TIME IS MONEY!!!

That's why I bought six NEW S3+'s  on eBay in a total from 3 different auctions on eBay TODAY!  $265.00 + $511.99 + 760.33 = $1,537.32 divided by 6 = $256.22 each.  NOT BAD AT ALL for NEW batch 9's!!!  NOT BAD AT ALL!!!

3 Corsair AX860 PLATINUM's should be here Friday from Amazon.

TIME IS MONEY!!!

I'm holding on to the BTC I've mined since September 22nd to get nothing but S4's from here on out.  I will have a total of 16 S3+'s total going by this Saturday.  They were sent out today via FedEx and should be here from Texas on no later than Saturday.  I think one will be here Friday.

I'm spending ALL OF MY BTC on S4's until I have 8 of them.  To me, you can't go wrong with getting S4's.  I've explained it in a previous thread.  Power consumption {COST} is less for the hashing output you get.

When it's all said and done, I will have 8 S4's and 16 S3's running at approximately 23.7 TH's TOTAL and approximately 16,928 watts.

8 S4's x 1380 watts at the wall = 11,040 watts for 16 TH/s TOTAL without over clocking at 2 TH/s EACH connected to four 30 AMP outlets.

OR

30 S3's x 368 watts at the wall [with Corsair AX860 PLATINUM PSU's] = 11,040 watts for 13.65 TH/s [without over clocking] at average of 455 GH/s EACH connected to five 20 AMP outlets.

NOTICE:  BOTH COMPARISONS HAVE 11,040 watts at the wall. HOWEVER, you get WAY MUCH MORE HASHING POWER WITH THE S4's.

ALSO:  IF you ever think about selling your mining equipment, I don't think you'll have much of a problem getting at least half [if not more] of your money back on eBay.

MY OPINION!!!
