Every time a block is mined, a certain amount of BTC (called the subsidy) is created out of thin air and given to the miner. The subsidy halves every four years and will reach 0 in about 130 years.

I have had several people ask me not to close this so I have relented.

Lets say I have suspended it until I can work something out.  I have had a few offers from organisations that migh be able to help me out moving bitcoins around and I will look into them.

If you wish to get a refund though just ask, I have never had a no refund policy anyway.

So if Mtgox is giving you problems, wouldn't it be safer to allow buyers use fiat to buy the block eruptors? You get your money in fiat which in the end, you can transfer it to mtgox and trade it for BTC and pay friedcat to get more stock.

In the end, miners would be disposing of their fiat by buying miners which generates more BTC which is what I do when I purchase FPGA boards.

I would love to buy these and switch from gpu to asic but honestly, the price is just too high, I would buy 10 of these today around the $50 mark though if your willing.

Thats not a bad idea, it would be a lot more work but it is something I will look into.

Well, Friedcat dropped the price by half, so it'd only be half instead of a quarter!

Speaking of which, you'll need to work out what to do with order in this batch, offer a refund of half paid or double your order with ASICMINER and provide double to people who have already ordered?

Yeah, I am thinking that I just double everyone's order.  I have not brought that up with anyone yet because I am still trying to sort out a way to turn BTC into NZD so I can pay the shipping, customs, tax etc..

So far I am trying to get hold of someone at bitcurex (I have one of their cards, but it seems no one is home) and I am also doing a bitstamp transfer while getting approved for NZD transactions from ZipBit (I am not sitting idle).

In the meantime I have sent a few requests to MtGox to give me back my  $3,000 USD so I can buy bitcoin and transfer off their exchange but it is strangely quite over there Sad .

Any progress with your MtGox transaction? The two weeks should be over by now, assuming of course that MtGox honours their statement.
