Hello boys and girls.

I finally picked up my BFL Jalapeno from the post office yesterday.
Got it to work after struggling for about an hour.

It is currently mining at around 5 Gh/sec

The order was placed in the second week of September 2012, and the product arrived on 15th June.

That's 9 months. I could have had a baby by now!!!!

here's a screenshot.

You are absolutely right. This is currently my most prized possession.
It is worth to me more than the Rs 17000 + it cost me.

BTW, I had to pay customs duty of about 75$ on top of 149$ for the device and about 35$ for shipping.

around 270$ in total.
expect to pay hefty duty for the more expensive products....

Grats St Lucifer

thanks benson.

I have done some quick calculations.. It seems if i keep mining 24/7, i can pay my rent with the income.

Are you really able to mine 0.1 btc per day?

So your BFL jalapeno will be paid off in just 1 month? i.e. 3 btc = $300 approx

Mining calc from thegenesisblock.com says ROI is 50 days.

practically, my daily reward is in the range of 0.06 to 0.08

I have so far mined 0.86 btc since july 17th, but i had about 10 -11 days downtime during that period.

If you are not able to mine 24x7x30, i think you should sell it.

Any reason for the downtime?

You should probably pick up a Pi.

As of today, I have mined 1.3 BTC. In less than a month.
assuming i can mine another 0.2 btc in the next 4 days ( usually takes a little over 2 days ), that would make it 1.5 btc ~ 140 to 150 usd.

the box cost me a total of 300 USD ( including customs duty ).
I guess another month and a half of mining should recover the costs, assuming btc value doesn't drop.

you may end up with better profit buy selling it now. assuming netwrok hash rate grow and difficulty. in 2 weeks from now and you will be mining 0.5 btc per month and no body will buy it from you at that point.

Cant agree more with Pinwheel. Frankly speaking you will make much better profit if you will sell it now. You can simply convert that FIAT to BTC and can enjoy much more returns Smiley
