Hi all,

I have started a group buy for the USB Block Erupters since they are now lower in price.
Group buy open to SG/MY only.  I have posted it on my blog at http://sgminingconsortium.wordpress.com for easy updates.
Please take a look and support me if you are in the market for some.  Feel free to PM me as well for any queries.

Regards.
Derek

Yups I will update on the blog as it moves along.
Please make sure you understand the ROI on these devices.
It is extremely difficult to make profit on them but they are good as novelty items or if you have free power.

I am just doing this as a service to the bros in sg/my and not out to profit.  Just some kopi $ Im happy liao. Smiley

I'm happy to just run a mining-less node to support the BTC economy. I've sent you an email. I wanna get some miners.

I did some calculations with the following assumptions:

a) We get the miners within 2 months
b) The average difficulty change is 1.15x (15%)
c) Miner is running 24/7
d) Pool doesn't charge fees. So if they do, just have to deduct the appropriate %.
e) Free electricity!

So with that, it seems that revenue will flat-line at around the 60th week to give a cumulative sum of around 0.333BTC. So uh, know what you're getting into before placing an order!



Edit: I can adjust the data accordingly if the miners are delivered, say, a month from now instead. Still looks bleak though.

knc looks like a good deal if they ship first.  BFL has been at the front of controversy since the start of their announcement.   Lucky I never order from them.
I agree that KnC appears to be much more professional than others in terms of engineering and marketing, but imagine the amount of power they intend to introduce into the bitcoin network.  The guy that is first in line bought one saturn and one jupiter.  That's over $11,000 USD with shipping.  At the targeted chip power, this guy would be able to do 600 GH/s, generating $49,305 USD per month at today's difficulty.  There are a couple of problems with this scenario that don't jive with common business instinct.  To protect mining profitability, builders must control how much computing power they release on the network rather than distribute as much as possible as quickly as possible.  This is the problem that affected BFL.  They sold as much as possible without ever intending to ship everything immediately.  If ASICs were distributed widely and cheaply, mining profitability would return to previous levels for everybody, neither the miners nor the engineers would have extraordinary ROI.  So, right now we have sort of a lottery situation, where the developers and early investors profit the most.  Late adopters of ASIC mining will experience the same profitability they had with GPU's last year.  The other issue concerns the future of bitcoin itself.  If KnC or any other company can deliver in quantity, they are also in a position to hijack the blockchain.  I believe that ASICMiner has the ability do a 51% attack today, they just won't because it would topple the house of cards.  It's better to milk the cow for many years rather than kill it for steaks.  In the current situation, the future of bitcoin is controlled by a few powerful entities such as BFL, MtGox, Avalon, and ASICMiner.  Others may join the ranks soon.  As long as they don't screw up royally, the currency remains useful, but if a large disturbance in the force were to occur (borrowing from star wars), the value of the coin could easily go back to nothing.

Hi Everyone,

I am now running 2x group buys at sgminingconsortium.wordpress.com.

They are for :
Block Erupter USB ASICs - 2/50 commited so far.
0.5 BTC Casascius Coins (new!)

Please feel free to drop by and take a look and join in if interested.  If you are in the market for these items, you may want to know that I am not doing the group buy for pure profit and thus the prices are (I'm pretty confident) the lowest around just for MY/SG folks only.

Regards.
Derek

Hi Derek,
I might be interested in a group buy of klondike boards from bkkcoins or Bicknellski.  I like what they are doing, they're local, and they estimate 4 GH/s < $300.

Yups I am following them too and emailed Darin a few times.  Last I heard they are group buying avalon chips.

To be precise, powered usb hubs. You can buy from sim lim 6th floor at $32 a hub for usb 3.0 hubs having 8 slots I think.
