I received some interest on this from a few parties without running a formal auction, but not quite at the level I wanted, so I've decided to run a fast auction based on the recent template from cryptx: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=321331.0

  • Hashrate: 45GH/s+ (currently being achieved*)
  • 16 Bitfury ASIC chips
  • 4 Layer thermally enhanced PCB
  • External clock
  • PIC32 native USB-Controller
  • CAN-Bus inter-module communication option (it is possible to use only one USB connection for up to 8 boards if you have the right cables)
  • Power connectors: 6 Pin VGA, barrel jack for wallwart, terminal block.
  • Power requirement: 50 up to 75 Watts
  • Onboard 60A adjustable core voltage power supply
  • Host software: Cgminer
  • Temperature controlled fan

*This is what I'm achieving. Depending on the environment it may vary, so this is not guaranteed, but can reasonably be expected (depending on settings) and some people have managed to adjust settings to squeeze out about 10% more

Included:
  • Assembled Bitburner Fury PCB
  • Including 16 Bitfury ASIC chips
  • Micro-USB Cable
  • Cooling fan

Starting bid: 2.5BTC
Minimum increment: 0.11BTC

Location is London, UK. Shipping is additional and must be paid by the bidder. You can choose your own shipping (so you can decide the speed / cost you would like), as long as it is signed for so that I can verify the board has been received. Buyers from outside of the EU will be responsible for their own customs clearance so be mindful of this. I will ship this out very promptly once payment is received.

Auction closes tomorrow (Sunday, 3 November) at 20:00 UK time; deadline will be extended by 3 minutes after each new bid once this deadline has passed (e.g. if someone bids at 19:59, bid deadline will be 20:02 unless someone bids again before 20:02).

1.5 bitcoins

better get rid of it before all the ignorant ppl out there see the new difficulty level in 60 hours

Dacentec, best deals for US dedicated servers. They regularly restock $20-$25 Opterons with 8-16GB RAM & 2x1-2TB HDD's (ofc, usually lots of other good stuff to choose from).  I did a Serverbear benchmark of one of my $20/mo Opteron (June last year), it's here.  Have had about a half dozen different servers with Dacentec, & none have failed to sustain at least 40MB/s (burst higher). My favorite is a 12-month rent-to-own ZT Systems 2XL5520 16GB 2x2TB SATA for $40/month (got lucky with the 'off-brand', haven't seen a RTO 2xL5520 for under $50/mo since -- at least for monthly contracts).  wholesaleinternet.com has some ancient 2-core intel CPUs @ $10/mo sometimes (I got an Intel Core 2 6300 @ 1.86GHz, with a 250GB HDD with 46000 hours on it, LOL. $20 @ Dacentec is much better, if you can grab one). joesdatacenter.com (same location as Wholesale Internet) also occasionally has specials (or if you don't want to wait, it has an AMD Opteron 170 @ $16/mo).

Money talks, BS walks. cryptx just sold 8 of these exact same boards at auction 2-3 days ago for between 3.4-3.8BTC each, plus shipping on top https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=321331.0 - on that basis, this is a steal at 2.5BTC starting bid

Yes, he sold them to people who can't calculate or are mining for a hobby and don't care about ROI. (Been there, done it)
50GH/s generates 0.05789BTC/day according to http://bitcoinwisdom.com/bitcoin/difficulty

If you take the next expected difficulty of 37% and calculate what you'll generate till the end of March, it will be 1.517BTC.
And that's excluding shipment and electricity.
Of course the 37% might be too high for all coming 2160 block periods, but it also might be too less!

I already concluded buying hardware is useless for now until the network has stabilized from the ASIC storm.

I am selling in stock OneStringMiner boards, based on the Bitfury chips. Have a look here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=495536.0

You bid 2.6BTC for his boards - my starting bid is 2.5BTC. One has to wonder whether you're discouraging bidding because you want to scoop up my board for 2.5BTC at the last minute

Wisdom comes with time... And no, I am not discouraging bidding.

I would urge everyone to bid.
Mining is not only ROI, it's also fun to tweak settings and optimize environment.
And an added bonus: heating your room.

I have had a private bid for 2.61.

Note to anyone else thinking of making bids via PM: it is better to post all bids in this thread, because I will not be held responsible for any private bids that I fail to post here fast enough before the deadline passes. If you want to bid, post here.

If you PM me, I will try to keep the thread up to date, but I can't be at my computer continuously right now unfortunately, and this thread will be the decider. If it's not in this thread before the deadline it will not count, even if you PM'd me before the deadline.

Best

i didn't want to say anything else before the auction ended, but, some advice

it would be wise not to base your pricing decisions on item x based on the price "some random guy" was willing to pay for it "a few days ago".

when I was pricing my 6990's to sell on ebay, there were 4 that had ended in the last week, w/ prices ranging from $350 to $470 (450 + 20 ship).   so, if the last one that sold was the $470 one, that makes the price $470?


Dacentec, best deals for US dedicated servers. They regularly restock $20-$25 Opterons with 8-16GB RAM & 2x1-2TB HDD's (ofc, usually lots of other good stuff to choose from).  I did a Serverbear benchmark of one of my $20/mo Opteron (June last year), it's here.  Have had about a half dozen different servers with Dacentec, & none have failed to sustain at least 40MB/s (burst higher). My favorite is a 12-month rent-to-own ZT Systems 2XL5520 16GB 2x2TB SATA for $40/month (got lucky with the 'off-brand', haven't seen a RTO 2xL5520 for under $50/mo since -- at least for monthly contracts).  wholesaleinternet.com has some ancient 2-core intel CPUs @ $10/mo sometimes (I got an Intel Core 2 6300 @ 1.86GHz, with a 250GB HDD with 46000 hours on it, LOL. $20 @ Dacentec is much better, if you can grab one). joesdatacenter.com (same location as Wholesale Internet) also occasionally has specials (or if you don't want to wait, it has an AMD Opteron 170 @ $16/mo).

oh, being optimistic w/ the shipping time, you'll have a week to use this at the 515m difficulty level, netting you 0.31 bitcoins, 0.31 for the 10 days after that (if you're lucky w/ ~30% difficulty jump), 0.22, 0.154, 0.108, 0.0756, 0.05292, 0.037044.

I'm glad I wasn't taken up on that 1.5 offer
