Paying $18+ per GH today hoping someone dumber than you will pa $20 is well stupid.

I humbly disagree. Why is that stupid if the probability of that event is high? Current price on CEX.io (expressed in USD) is $22.64, currently I've put a buy order for all BTC I have there on $18.89. Many times already happens that I buy 5% cheaper and sell 5-10% more. Don't get why do you think my current buy order is stupid?

Why not go to Crypsty, if what you want to do is trade?
The difference with cex ghash shares is that they are guaranteed to fall in value, in terms of the BTC/day they generate.
Price may not have caught up with that fall in value yet, but eventually it must.

What's wrong with a little trading? + I like the idea of a mining while trading. You can't have that on Crypsty. + I like the idea of determining the real price of GHs, and exchange is the right place for that.

And what's the problem trading with something that's guaranteed to fall in value? There are million things that are guaranteed to fall in value and people trade with them all the time.

I guess you just have to watch every 10 days or so...to make sure your ROI outpaces the fall in value... As the next stage of ASIC miners come into play...it should fall down to .05 GHS.... at some point, they will need to start selling them in THS =)

what everyone seems to forget is that for the diff to double from here it requires 4000 1T machines. Its not going to happen as fast as most people thinks

BFL alone estimates they can make 1000 Monarchs/day. So could happen in just one week sometimes early next year Smiley

There is, just wait until the ASIC war is over and the difficulty stay the same Smiley

True, might happen next year (late probably).

Worth the wait, the 1 TH miners will cost like GPU


It will never ROI

what everyone seems to forget is that for the diff to double from here it requires 4000 1T machines. Its not going to happen as fast as most people thinks


BFL alone estimates they can make 1000 Monarchs/day. So could happen in just one week sometimes early next year Smiley

BFL estimates are usually very accurate...

there you go  Grin written in stone. As the price of equipment goes up the universe of miners willing to put 1000's into a asic is reduced and that will level difficulty.

My 0.01 BTC worth...

1 - From an ROI perspective, it doesn't make sense to buy any hardware available right now at today's prices.

2 - If you want to invest, invest in BTC.

3 - Presumably because of #2 is why the value of BTC continues to climb.  The investors have nothing else to do with their money.

4 - At some point people want to start selling BTC to make a profit.  When that happens, the price of BTC stabilizes or falls.

5 - Hardware manufacturers and resellers have a problem right now.  They're invested in manufacturer/reselling ASICs and people are catching on to point #1 above.

6 - Something has to come from #5.  I suspect more than one ASIC company is going to go belly up because no one wants their hardware at the price they need to sell to break even, let alone make a profit.  Resellers are going to hurt too.  Watch for fire sales, but buy wisely not emotionally.  1/2 off normal price is probably still too much.

7 - As someone stated above, there is an ASIC bubble right now.  Horsepower is thru the roof.  Hard to make an honest BTC anywhere.  (Day trading is not honest.)

8 - Something has to come from #7.  I too think we're going to see a decrease in hashpower at some point, but I think the bubble has to get bigger first.

9 - Don't trust a word BFL says.  Their motto is a "there's a sucker born every minute".

10 - Seems to me the making of a perfect storm are here.  Be careful, there aren't going to be many winners in how this plays out.

Really?  One company--Cointerra--claims that they're going to deliver 2,000 terahashes of hashing capacity in December alone.

Or think about it this way.  If the difficulty increases 25% for each of the next three intervals--which of course it will, it's not like the ASIC vendors are closing up shop--then the difficulty will double.  And an interval is like 10 days now, so we're talking a month.

It isn't profitable to mine anymore but, without our miners there would be no transactions going through!
