Planning is getting harder not easier and all the surplus MicroBT had from their latest release is gone as well.

I have to simply do nothing.  I have sat and checked all prices on all units.

from bitmain innosilicon whatsminer and avalon.

the best item to buy is the s9k for 310 new from bitmain  buy 2 you are under de minimus at 798 with the shipping.

something is wrong here with every company as they are pricing  the 'good' gear far too high and far too long of a wait.

So much so that a 5 cent power guy should buy the s9k direct from bitmain in sets of 2 to legally beat the trump tax.

The question I have is why are they driving the price up so high, I mean all the mnfg's are frigging doing it!

Do they see FOMO as their salvation?

Is it the fact that IF you are not in the USA and/or not in a VAT country, you can clean up on ASIC miners with these prices...in addition to saying these same countries are in the 4c to 6c kWh electric range? Could the demand from NON-EU VAT countries and the USA etc have such a demand on prices to make up for the fact the USA and a lot of EU buyers are not out, and the countries above are in full FOMO and such, allowing the mnfg's to drive up prices?

I just don't get it, been bothering me on wtf is going on for weeks now.

So anyway, perhaps is a hole of mining FOMO that needs to be filled, and is being filled by countries without VAT and/or tariffs like the USA. The current manufacturer's of ANY ASIC miner flavor, have all seen this, and are jumping full boat on this FOMO and assumption of price pump, just by seeing the numbers, indeed I'd guess they are NOT seeing their sales slow down, thus raising prices, thus where we find ourselves now.

I just wish I had a handle on an 'honest broker' in a far east country with decent hosting and electric prices.  Took me years to find such in the USA, doubt I'd pull such an overseas trick.

But again, somebody either knows or is assuming a lot of stuff that I am not, or some of my meanderings above are in play, but yeah, I just don't get it.

Sorry about off-topic this will likely get deleted..but this is a concern on ANY miner purchase anywhere.

You add the frigging 36.7% tariff with import fees and I am (on top of the above) beyond flabergasted

whatever...end of rant

Good question I have twenty psu’s on hand.

So if you want  psu’s buy them on eBay for 65 bucks or amazon for 65

That won’t affect de minimus. So to be fair you may need to add some cash in for a psu.

Since the PSU ship later you can create the order as you'll get units then psu's and will be under de minimis both shipments. Though you won't be mining till the latter arrives.

Has anybody tested the M20-45 with 8NM Samsung chips? I am very interested in this gear.

Seams is the best choice at the moment. But price is very high and delivery is in December. Maybe I become 0.5 BTC in December for 2000 USD. I have this time the same feeling as in November 2017. Bitmain sells the s9 for high price with delivery in late February.

Well if buying the m20 for 1890 usd in dec turns out to be bad

Buying the s17 pro for 2875 usd in dec would be worse.

Seems OK.

If BTC price rise, it is good to have one of the best gear.
If BTC price drop, hashrate drop and you can earn more BTC.

I order two M20S-68 and one M20-45 on pangolin, plus become a small coupon.

December is so far away 😭.

The bigger coupons only came out when sales were slow. I think the last one I used was at the end of January, maybe February. It's nice to see they still have the little one on the site full-time. I don't think we'll see any deep discounts until next year at least considering the pre-sale market we're in now.

Have to agree with this.  The question for me is  do I order the m20  and wait for 120 days.  A long wait.

That is the same question that has been bugging me for quite some time... In my opinion it looks like summer is the worst time for ordering and end of winter and beginning of spring is the best. So I am going to wait for at least January.

Well, my Xcel utility went nuts. My summer residential rates are 17.59c kWh now, I mean a 6c increase in 2 years? sheesh.

Home mining for me is deader than dead! Sad Data Hall is 9.5c-10c kWh. That boat doesn't float too well. And of course, as you state the 120 days wait on a Whatsminer M20 indeed. In case your pre-order is longer than 120 days. (That never happens right?)

Then with the Whatsminer M20 may be late on the pre-order. When you add the USA tariff to this at 27.6% it gets very ugly. If you take into account that maybe after December 15th, 2019 the tariff could go up another 10% if again, your pre-order is a bit late. Well ugly indeed.

Then lastly, of course, is the price, which for the value of Bitcoin and the pre-order 120 days is more than a bit too high for this Whatsminer M20, well that is quite a list above. I should re-phrase that WAY, WAY, too high, IMHO!

So assuming (guessing) philipma1957 can not justify any of this at (again I think his electric cost is this) 8c kWh or so? I'm so out of the running on this, I'm in the grandstands watching this ASIC blood sport and way, way out of this arena! So I am reduced to following Philpma1957's actions like an ASIC fanboy, just to at least have something to do.

I'm sure not getting anything this year, the way it looks like at the moment.

I am 50-50 coin spilt   So my gear always earns  but  lets do some math.

45th /2 = 22.5th for free  current earning rate is 0.0000241 a th

so 22.5 x 0.0000241 = 0.00054225 btc a day  x 10,700 = $5.80 a day.  so a 1850 usd unit + 150 =  2000 + 500 trump tax = 2500/5.80 = 431 days.  I will pretend price increases slowly as diff equals (who knows what happens for sure).

So I am looking at 431 days of mining and 120 days of waiting. or 551 days.  The gear price is too high as is the waiting time for it.

I was sold a 21s for 2500 got it aug 1st     it is 56th  and it mines now  it will take  333 days to break even.

I was looking forward to your answer(even though I wasn't checking the forums this week)....

I totally agree with you and I liked your calculation, it saves me a lot of time, so thank you for that!
