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?

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. 

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.

Yeah including hardware sales.

Without hardware sales, if we take Asic miner as an example.

5btc/share peak at 50th with 400,000k shares is a 2, 000, 000 BTC valuation.

5btc/25x less shares for labcoim is .2/btc share if they hit 500th its 2btc/share at current difficulty of course it will rise, but if it doesnt as much and labcoin starts hashing as planned .5-1btc/share is not unresonable.

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

I'd have to disagree there... If they could produce a 2GH USB miner at an appropriate price point they could make a lot off of hardware sales.  

They just need to focus on the markets where the other guys can't play.

They wouldn't be able to power a 2Gh/s mining stick without some new chip, since their old ones would draw too much power, I believe.

It's not the TH/s that's important, it's the % of the network.  When AM had 50 TH/s and a 5btc share price, they often surpassed 25% of the network.  Unless something changes significantly, Labcoin will never have that much of the network, even with double their promises.

Johny,  I love your enthusiasm, but your reasoning needs a little polish.  It doesn't really make sense to compare Labcoin to AM.  AM's 5btc/share valuation came at a time where their trust was at an all time high and they had no competition.  They were able to sell hardware at an insane markup and they at times held 20+% of the global network hash rate.

Those days are over.

They are planning a Gen 2 to be coming out within 2 months, so yes, it does make sense to sell all of Gen 1, instead of mining with it.

Hard to know for sure as the information tap has been turned off.  We don't know what the actual power draw / GH is. Do we?

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.

I lost money because of it - he first put it up with no explanation at all.  No what provisions they were violating nor what how it had been "flagged" (or by who, or how the 'flagging' process even worked.)

So, I sold. partly because I thought it might drive the price down further, and partly because I actually had no idea what was going on.  There'd been so much drama with Labcoin, for all we knew it was put there because it was feared they'd run off with the IPO money or something.

Later he posted an update a comment which explained what was going on (it had to do with share locking) and linked to it, and the price immediately recovered. Since the price had been going up due to the hashing I bought back in at a higher price then I sold, like a total idiot. Had I just waited a bit I could have actually profited. Oh well.

The ipo made clear already that Burnside absolutely doesn't care about the people who use his site and make him money. You sound surprised.

Its price is not a very relevant factor in its adoption....

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!

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.

Responsible for his users. That's funny. If there is one thing he doesn't give a shit about it is his users.

Its price is not a very relevant factor in its adoption....

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.

I don't believe they will be hashing @ 500TH/s. I don't think we should take them that seriously with the numbers.

8.33% of the global network is unlikely. 3% is realistic.  But yeah I agree with you, the amount of credibility they have lost they should be aiming for 15% of the network and not 8%.  They should be going for 2000TH but let me be realistic I don't think they can get 500TH by Jan 1 2014. 2000TH is something only Asicminer could pull off at this point. I say this mainly because I don't think they can possibly deploy 500TH by 2014 unless they somehow can outsource it and if they can do that then why not push for 1000TH?

This is why I have JB on ignore. The mere fact that this thread is longer than the AM thread is a testament to the ridiculous content.

As far as price, LC would do extremely well to get to ~ .08 BTC per share or a value of $100M.

He runs the best exchange, go to bitfunder and enjoy your icedrill shares if you hate burnside so much. The warning was tame compared to what it could have been.

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.

Currently more than half of AM's dividend comes from hardware sales. It cannot be ignore at all. Moreover, there's an announcement of 1PH by the end of this year. Without this, the price may already way below 0.5 BTC. Come back to LC, even with 500T, the price will be 0.01 at best that time and will drop quickly if there's no clear future plan (such as gen 3).

Yeah his estimates are so idiotic that it makes you wonder about the overall quality of minds engaged with Labcoin.

.08 would be amazing especially if you jumped in at IPO

I'm hoping we can break .025-.035

That is incorrect as lately friedcat has been withholding the money from the hardware sales and dividends only included proceeds from the mining.

Maybe burnside should put a big scam warning, ohh I forgot he only cares to do that against his competition, as peta a complete fail doesnt have a warning.
