I think ASIC will start the demise of bitcoin from the consumer point of view, if you cant mine for BTC why pay a premium to buy them when a debit card and amazon will be cheaper for any LEGAL goods you might want to buy. Speculation and slightly dodgy transactions is all people will want BTC for.

Why cheaper?


If you cant mine for coins you have to buy them, people selling BTC here in the UK charge a premium (up to about 10%), bank transfers to exchanges are pretty much non existent.
an item costing £80 on amazon is most likely going to cost more somewhere else e.g (insert Btc store here) due to lack of purchasing power.
And for newbies, the hassle of setting up the wallet, finding stores, obtaining Btc (no easy task)

Everyone can afford a GPU, not many can afford 2k+ for asic.


So it's more expensive for people in the UK - that sucks. That's not everyone though.

Most people can use bitpay, it's same price as using a credit card without everyone knowing you just bought "Busty beauties 7" online. I'm not sure why you're unable to use it?

dont you need Btc to start with to use Bitpay though?

With the K16 project its not going to be necessary to drop 2k for ASIC.  At current chip prices its closer to $300 for 4.5GH/s.  Cheap enough for DIY to still exist but GPUs will quickly become useless.

is that the same as the asicgigahash project based in the uk?  can i trust them enough to make a pre-order if it is?

even 4.5GH/s will be next to nothing at the rate things are going, would still need a few!

Avalon is selling chip productions in minimum batches of 10000 there are a good dozen people implementing these.  Yes 4.5GH/s will likely be the new 450MH/s Cheesy  We are basically just swapping a $300 450MH/s video card with a $300 4.5GH/s ASIC.  At least until even newer ASICS are released.

will there be a plentiful supply of chips? if so all is well and good  Wink  

edit-- found my own answer, at least the end of the year, im a little less bitter towards ASIC now.  Grin

Sub $50 USB sticks would do wonders for affordability (and difficulty!).  Its all possible as long as some manufacturer is still producing.

nearly pre ordered some usb, but at BTC2 its cheaper to get a 6870 gpu for same hashes and a gaming system or 2 after.

Current USB price is ridiculous.  One chip costs closer to BTC0.08 price is high because they are not available in large quantities yet

Checked the Gox graph lately? The last time BTC prices crashed this hard, Dwolla had just gotten snuffed out. Any idea what we're looking at this time? My guess is it has something to do with their policy change about account verification for fiat currency withdraws. Suppose it's going to jump back again? If so, it's a great time to swap your Gox dollars for BTC and sell them elsewhere if you don't just use them up instead. If it stabilizes at around $100, no big deal, still worth it for me. If it keeps dropping... Party's over! Everyone out of the pool. ASIC owners will enjoy their fancy bricks while GPU miners play games at max video settings.

It's really not much to worry about.  If you'd have been watching the price for the last two years you would realize that this is the most stable it has been since it was around $5 / btc.  The price of btc has been super volatile over the last 2-3 years...

Nothing to see here, move along...

Someone dumped a lot of BTC on to Gox last Sunday cueing the initial big value drop. This was followed by a smaller dump today which has accelerated the drop.


I imagine it will rise again until the next dump.

So I was under the impression that the difficulty just meant that blocks were found more slowly.  But it appears that my hashrate has fallen about 20% across all of my miners.  Is this to be expected?  I'll check the miners when I get home, but I thought my MH/s would remain unaffected, I would just have a smaller payout.

I guess I'm still a little unclear how the difficulty affects the mining.  Can someone enlighten me on what my expectations should be?

The Pool GH/s has gone up another 1,000 gh/s which effects pay out % not your hashrate, nor would a diff increase that happened yesterday morning effect a hasah rate a day later....

 However you are saying your HASHRATE went down.... I know some IP's were offline all morning so maybe you were using those ip's and therefore not mining for an hour or 2.

Hashrate follen? Reword or hashrate? If you didn't lost a card it shouldn't drop. Unless you are spiking about reword for block...

Both; And I have several machines mining, and they've all dropped off.  Some 10%, some 25%.  But across the board, every device has lost hashing power.

I know that Slush's report of my hashrate can be a little off, but it's been consistently down since yesterday AND the reward has fallen in tandem.

The difficulty changes are designed to keep blocks being found at a steady pace.  So when the total hash rate of the network goes up, and blocks start getting found faster, the difficulty will go up so that blocks will continue to be found at the same rate.

That's how we can predict when the next block halving will be.  It's all about math.  And the reason your reward goes down, is because there is more hashing power finding about the same amount of blocks.  So if you don't increase your hash power at the same rate the network/pool hash rate increases, then your share of the pie will get smaller.
