Well looks like the lab has turned it around, so let's say labcoin reaches their december goal of 500th/s.  Has anyone used some math and took a guess as the share price and dividend yet? If they get anywhere close to 500th/s it could be epic, no?

Well, if we go by their track record, they will have 200 TH/s online in Feb.

This can anyone run some numbers?  Im going to take a guess of 5BTC+/share without hardware sales profits.

5btc doesn't make sense.  There are 10,000,000 shares so that would mean a market cap of 6 BILLION DOLLARS.

The more I think about it, the more that warning is a drastic overreaction to a minor issue.

The whole thing has been handled very poorly by Burnside.  I've lost some faith in the exchange because of this whole incident. Making up rules as you go along is not the way to earn my trust.

You only say that because it effects your share price. Labcoin has been acting shady as hell. I say that as a shareholder being unbiased...this warning will make Labcoin re-think pulling the same crap in the future, and know there are consequences.


No, I say that because Burnside has handled it very poorly, acting essentially on whims.

Putting up a warning like that is VERY serious, as was evidenced by the reaction to it.  What was the process for it?  

Where is this process documented? Where was it discussed?

Labcoin should be responsive, sure. That in no way absolves Burnside of his far too casual handling of the whole matter.

Today it's Labcoin, but it could be any offering on the site. We don't know when Burnside is going to decide to interpret things however he wants and take essentially random actions.



Burnside gave them multiple opportunities to make good on their promise and they never did. What the hell else was he suppose to do? Keep begging them for weeks/months/years on end and never get a response. All they have to do is provide him with the proof and it's over. But they can't do that!

1) Labcoin broke several rules of BTCT and should have been delisted if burnside had strictly followed the term of services. You should be happy he didn't.
2) Labcoin and Swede didn't answer for weeks about these issues.

What do you expect?

Burnside gave them multiple opportunities to make good on their promise and they never did. What the hell else was he suppose to do? Keep begging them for weeks/months/years on end and never get a response. All they have to do is provide him with the proof and it's over. But they can't do that!

Burnside most probably sees a responsible for his users. Thats a good sign. And since its hurting him too i doubt he did this slightly. Its generally a very bad idea if things lay down unsolved. I guess im reacting allergic to such behaviour since yifu behaved the same way. I think its a good thing that burnside is behind such things.
Its a simple thing for security issuers. Solve the problem and done.

Again, where is the process for placing a warning documented?  

Was Labcoin notified this would be the next step?

Why not post more of an explanation rather than something that makes it seem the stock could be frozen at any moment?

This can anyone run some numbers?  Im going to take a guess of 5BTC+/share without hardware sales profits.

5btc/share is a ridiculous estimate (sorry, but it is).

Assuming the global network hashrate is 6PH by Jan 1 and Labcoin is hashing @ 500TH/s, that is 8.33% of the global network.

A conservitive estimate of global bitcoins mined in a 2 week period is 56,000 (4,000 x 14).

8.33% of 56,000 is 4666.648 bitcoins divided by 10,000,000 shares is .0004666 / share.

~30% is removed for costs/reinvestment etc.

Final result: .0003266/share for the 2 week period. (roughly .0085 annually) for a share price of .0339 @ 25% annual return.

Of course this is entirely unrealistic as nobody would at this point trust labcoin enough to be happy with a 25% annual return.

Asic miner was at 450, 000, 000 vsluation at the peak of $5BTC, at 50th/sec.

So if labcoin has about 10X less shares at 50th they would be .50BTC, now at 500th whicb is 10X more would put them back to 5btc.

We're not even at 1/10th that now. Which I guess makes sense given  the trust level.

Sorry 25X less shares so about 1.5-2BTC/share with 500TH depending on network difficulty. Thats without hardware sales.

yup.. split that in half, so .01518 for a 50% return and that sounds about right

Impossible to know since we can't know what the overall difficulty will be.

According to this there's 7PH/s of announced hashrate coming online by December 2013. It could be higher, of if we're lucky other projects may fail and it'll be lower.

If it is 7Ph, and they have 0.5Ph that would be 7% of the network.  Looking at ASCIMiner's 7 day average hashrate, they're at about, maybe 45TH/s?

Total network hashrate is 0.99PH/s, according to bitcoin watch, so ASICMiner has maybe 4.5% of the network.

If you want to ignore ASICMiner's hardware sales (which the market is probably doing given they don't have anything beyond their 130nm stuff to sell yet) then you just multiply ASICMiner's share price by 0.04 go compensate for the difference in the number of shares. (400,000/10,000,00)

You get a share price of 0.064 if they were at 4.5%, and 0.0096 if they were at 7% and valued the same as ASICMiner.

Of course, it's unlikely they would be, given AM's long track record and Labcoin's dubious one.

He is assuming they achieve their hash power first.  We haven't cracked 1TH yet.

no, BTC/USD was lower then, and at most, they hit $200M (2,000,000 BTC) value. 

Even so, they were consistently delivering 25%+ of the network hash rate and 30+% APR, even on the 5 btc/share.

LOL.  he made the same insane prediction a while ago.  I thought about mentioning it in my post but figured most people wouldn't remember.

The truly crazy thing isn't $5 billion.  The price of bitcoin could go up to $10k tomorrow or something, making every asic company worth billions.

The crazy thing is that a valuation of labcoin shares at 5BTC would make the company worth 50 million bitcoins.  That is, of course, more then twice the number of bitcoins that will ever exist, and more then 4x the number of bitcoins that are left to be mined.

If you want to ignore ASICMiner's hardware sales
you can't really ignore the hardware sales, as that makes up more than 1/2 of AM's weekly dividend.  

AM's share price has typically followed 25-30% APR compared to their last dividend.  That relationship has held for months, now.

EDIT:  additionally, AM's hash rate has not increased, as they are obviously selling Gen1 hardware instead of mining with it, as it's more profitable.

The problem is HW sales aren't going to continue unless they come up with a 28nm chip or something.
