Hi,

I am completely new to bitcoin mining, but researched a lot in the last few days.
Can anyone explain to me, whey all hardware manufacturer are out of stock and why there are so extreme differences in $ per GH/s?

ie:

Blackarrow: 100 GH/s - 350$
Technobit:    40 GH/s - 750€
Erupter Blades 10 GH/s 800€ (Ebay)
Blackarrow: 160 GH/s - 2,499$
Hashfast:    400 GH/s - 2.250$
BFL:           600 GH/s - 4.680$
KnCminer:    550 GH/s - 4.995$
Blackarrow: 2000GH/s - 5.949$
BFL:           500 GH/s - 22.484$ (FFS?)


How is this possible? I seriously just dont get it Smiley

Thanks,

M

first generation asic i've waited for a year after sent money for pre-order while it was still being developed.

not everything being sold today is simply out of stock, most i'd bet are pre-orders for products being in development.  price differences ironically are more expensive for existing, more readily available hardware. next generation is cheaper (meaning for the same btc/dollar/euro you get more hashes)  but who knows how long the wait is going to be

Three little words, explains it all:  Supply and Demand.

When a market provides less than perfect information, pricing is always set by the most optimistic investors.  You can either gamble on their terms, invest and use BTC in other ways or sit on the side lines and watch and wait.  Mining is in a really weird place at the moment, hash rate exploding, BTC price rising, A LOT of variables to consider and as such you have a lot of different people with different ideas of the equipments value.

The difference is when the hardware is available and the difficulty at that time.

GH/$ is meaningless on its own.

I hate to admit, but Im pricing my hardware to sell much higher in anticipation of breaking the 2k barrier price...who knows when that happens or if it happens.  I had no idea that my hardware would shoot up in value as it did....oh well.

You're missing Bitmine.ch, CoinTerra and more. See http://decentralizedhashing.com/bitcoin-mining-equipment-table

Run a Bitcoin node, support the network.

It's not shipping, and you're a shareholder. Go away scammer.

Lol


It costs more to have it now, you get in low when pre ordering as you also help the makers out. Black arrow will probably sky rocket if/when they launch. see the $6000 units moving for 20 on ebay.
