The Jalapeno cost 170 including shipping for quite a while. I don't know why everyone is quoting the current price and also adding on shipping costs to it. I would like to know when it was exactly that people started paying that much for these. They wont be seeing a return I don't think because their shipping date must be a bit away still.

I also dislike that for some reason this calculator won't let you go "back in time." I started my miner a few days ago, not this month, but I can't set that. would be nice if it asked for the day and not just the month, for more clear calculations, and not limit the dates.

I will make back my cost in 19 days I believe. Everything after that is extra.

The difficulty thing is always going to be annoying. At this moment it's quoting only 40%, and it goes up and down. Many people doing calculations elsewhere quote more like 20%. So it's a matter of looking at what's coming right now, where that's going to end, and if we are going to see any real jumps again. I personally think the increases are going to die down after all of this preorder stuff. It would take some real power being sold at a quite a low cost to really see returns after all of this. Mining is closing in on the end of it's real profitability. Everyone is going to have to start actually doing something to make coins, lol.

I for one am lucky, free power at work and all the BFL gear I ordered was free. So for me personally I am not fussed with regard to ROI.

That been said, I wonder why people dont group together and sue/class action BFL, Or is it some misguided hope that miraculously they will receive their gear tomorrow  . . I dont know.

I seriously doubt we'll see 62% monthly difficulty increases every into the indefinite future, or even anything like that.

Let's say you got a KnC Jupiter in December of this year. According to the default settings, you'd start with a 207,000,000 difficulty in 12/13, and end with a 13,324,000,000 difficulty in 11/14.

That would mean a network hashrate of 9.5 * 10^16, or 95 Petahash.

It is late May 2014. Difficulty is 10.5b, blockchain.info says network hashrate is 80 Petahash. Most likely we'll hit 13b difficulty in June.

Run a Bitcoin node, support the network.

The difficulty keeps rising at fairly steady rate although it has slowed a little but BFL keeps under delivering on product and it isn't surprising it is being done on purpose. Things never change in the BFL shipping queue.

One of these cards won't make back more than 200$ of the purchase value.

LOL,no Monarch yet Huh

Oh,well BTC mining is over for me.Finally sold my last Antminers today  Cry

But,got a 5mh Blade replacing them & another coming in 2-3 weeks.

Guess what,my 8.5 mh (I have 8 little Gridseeds & 3 vid cards too) will earn MORE BTC than 1 TH of Antminers by next diff change  Shocked  & use less than half the power!!!!!!!  Shocked

No Monarch will EVER top that!!!!!!!!   Cheesy  (Nor any existing BTC miner  Tongue  )

Fun fact. As it turned out, in 12/13 we had 1,000,000,000 difficulty, nearly 5x what your default settings projected and we breached 95PH in June rather than november.
