Looks like they are pushing the SP50 to 0.16w/gh. 400% increase in efficiency compared to the SP35.

Frightening really, I know of individuals digging into their own pockets to the tune of 100,000 USD to 200,000 USD to buy equipment for themselves in the early days. Here to be struggling to raise a meager 750,000 USD through some Micky Mouse OTC company is shocking. Could of easily tapped +/- 7 x long standing customers for a bail out and kept their points. Does not bode well for the future.

Quick idea since this once very vibrant thread and company comes to a resounding  death.

What if Spondoolies created their own SHA-256 and if they accepted it for payment for their miners, or even only that for payment for their miners (cash and their new coin only).

I am really not tracking here. I think it's been amply demonstrated that any SHA-256 coin that isn't Bitcoin, is "Dead On Arrival". Every single previous example has been a "Pump and Dump" trade for Bitcoin scheme that fails.

A new SHA-256 coin will NOT solve any problems for Spndoolies, or anyone else for that matter.

You missed the point.

There are so many conditions on BTCS' "investment" that I can't make head nor tail of it, pages of terms in the additional documents. There aren't any additional details on the Spondoolies part of it but there may be additional conditions. Also Spondoolies will be getting an additional ~$300k in sales from BTCS on top of the direct investment.

You know what I find most interesting here....  BTCS is a publicly traded company, and is subjected to all the rules and regulations of the SEC, IRS, and FINCEN.  They have to publicly disclose every single thing they do.  They have done this and been in compliance for years now.  Unless you are a thousand dollar an hour SEC lawyer you won't be able to understand all of the filings. They're not for you to understand.  They are for their own compliance with the SEC.  They are doing things the right way.  Albeit slowly, but correctly.  They get called "Mickey Mouse" (Which I think is laughable) when they have their company listed on the OTC, (which is where most start ups begin) they've successfully raised almost 10 million over two years, merged with a larger hardware company, have a solid multi year business plan, a huge mining facility, and are virtually debt free.  Yet and still so many of you guys knock them for this or that... They are a BUSINESS.  That means like everyone else here they want to turn a profit.  They're following their business plan and based on their publication will uplist to the NASDAQ this year, and release the SP50 after they fill their own data center.  Their loyalty is to their investors and stock holders.  Why would anyone of you think that they should be loyal to someone who is a miner or someone who is "in the BTC community" instead of a stockholder or investor?  Come on guys.  If you want to make some money on this deal - I know we all do - Invest in their stock.  They are the only publicly traded company in this space, and furthermore, imho they are one of the few who we can bank on doing what they say they are going to do.  We may not like their decisions and we may not agree with them all, but you can bet they will follow through.

That was too good not to comment in full.

they've successfully raised almost 10 million over two years,
And were left with a negative balance sheet prior to this investment.... Ie they blew it all

merged with a larger hardware company
Not yet, still only ~10% share ownership of Spondoolies.

have a solid multi year business plan
Not really, "we'll buy some miners of Spondoolies... when they exist... and mine with them". Hardly revolutionary.

[have] a huge mining facility
*Lease a mediocre mining facility with preowned infrastructure.

and are virtually debt free.
That's a bit subjective.

That means like everyone else here they want to turn a profit. 
Meanwhile they've lost 8 figures cumulatively.

They're following their business plan and based on their publication will uplist to the NASDAQ this year
Like fuck they will, they're no more likely to uplist to NASDAQ than I am.

and release the SP50 after they fill their own data center.
With what money? They had to scrabble together $300k from a LEASING company on terrible terms just to order ~6-10 SP50s from Spondoolies.

Their loyalty is to their investors and stock holders.
Of which they've lost all their money.

If you want to make some money on this deal - I know we all do - Invest in their stock.
Sounds like a great buy. Negative balance sheet, negligible revenue, continued forecast losses... buy now at only $20m market cap!!!

They are the only publicly traded company in this space
The only thing that means is they've paid SEC specialist lawyers a fuck tonne over the last few years.

We're all entitled to our own opinion, and clearly you don't like BTCS, spondoolies, or.... well anyone and that's ok.   You do whatever it is that you do.... I'll stay long on BTCS and see who comes out better over the next 12 months.  :-)

Is that figuratively long or shareholder long?

Their loyalty is to their investors and stock holders.  Why would anyone of you think that they should be loyal to someone who is a miner or someone who is "in the BTC community" instead of a stockholder or investor?

That's pretty much exactly why I will never participate in a publicly-traded company. Serve the customer, not the guy whose only purpose is to sit back and extract profits from your labor. Better to work for someone paying you than for someone you pay. Everyone always talks about going public like it's a good thing, but it's a really good way to get your priorities jacked up. How many economic crises and depressions were the result of stock manipulations of one kind or other?

Spondoolies, I might not like how dead-set they are on designing the most godawful complex systems possible, but as a business they have my respect. I hope they don't end up getting hosed.

It's a ten cent company. Hasn't achieved a single thing since its inception. The reality like a lot of theseMicky Mouse OTC operations is to give the founders lofty titles and a salary and nothing more. Take a ponce with a string of degrees after his name, marketing speak an 'e-commerce site using bitcoins' and take it public and hope for the best. The least novel business in the bitcoin sphere. Then when that fails. Marketing speak 'mining' as Transaction Verification Service.  All snake oil speak to make it sound unique to sap investors out there. The problem is all in this sphere are more savvy than that, and that is why it remains a ten cent company and forever will.

Here you go:

http://www.financemagnates.com/cryptocurrency/news/btcs-says-future-uncertain-in-sec-filing/

Quote

Monday, 11/16/15 /

BTCS Inc (OTCMKTS:BTCS), formerly Bitcoin Shop, reported a net loss of $3.8 million last quarter and $8.4 million year-to-date.

Quote
Late last year the company shifted practically its entire revenue-generating operation to bitcoin mining, seemingly shelving its e-commerce aspirations (the segment brought in $0 in 2015).

Genius.

By the time these guys got to market the market was dead with this 'bitcoin shop' like wise by the time they get there finances in order, Spondoolies will have to reconfigure their chips even further.

Baffled why in the world Spondoolies even got involved with these characters. Zero benefit now or in the future. If this little OTC operation were ever going to succeed in doing anything it would have happened long ago. Wrong people running it and wrong ideas from start to finish.  See unless Spondoolies has an ace up their sleeve like some new secret miner faster lighter smaller than SP50, that will shake the market and the world. That is once everyone is laden with the millions of 10 cent shares, an announcement is made next year and those shares suddenly become two hundred dollars a pair. But this cannot be the case by the virtue of the fact that 1. Spondoolies would have money men lining up to give them money for free and 2. this little OTC company would skip the piddly SP50 and blare such an announcement from the hilltops every where. They simply don't have anything and no one wants to give them anything. Dead as a doornail.

A miserable 750,000 USD to get SP50 off the ground? Could have gone public themselves, even quicker and easier gone some sort of crowd funding route. And since they no longer cater to the home miner, set up their own mining factory with all the returns and used machines that they may still have. Even team up with a Toomin and mine away.  What's that at the height. 1500 BTC to mine before selling parts of the company to this OTC failing operation?

Big deal: "the first public BTC company around" means nothing when you're selling shit, means even worse when you cannot state mining for what it is as fluff it up as a 'Transaction Verification Service'

This is not a business any way you want to describe it.  There's not enough room in mining for public share holders.  Specially when you or your parents spent a small fortune affixing those university degrees to your name, you must draw a salary equal to them all.  Roll Eyes

First off GW is right here.
People Hate what they Don't understand. What People don't understand they Fear.

" People Understand what they Hate it "
You all know at 110 th/s a machine at 28nm tech will cause more of a Network hash rate spike the miner you buy now and have will be useless in 6 to 7 months because the next get 16nm tech will be 200 to 300th per miner maybe even 500th per miner.

" People Fear what they Hate "
You Fear this because it leave you out in the Cold. News Flash everyone " Home mining is DEAD. "

What a waste.

Where's Guy? Where's Gabby?

What are you doing?

Why aren't you mining and creating miners and selling hardware designed as you said it would do?

This will inevitably end up as a foot note in BTC history and brilliant company with a better product thrown away for all to see.

Why aren't you selling right now the next best thing, the dollar is down and the BTC is up.  Bitmain can what exactly are you guys doing that we cannot see?

That ^

I just do not get it. A seemingly  incredibly brilliant group of start ups in the ASIC sphere being duped by these charlatans?

'Send in the Calvary' to save the day. There is another Micky Mouse (yes intentionally misspelt) operation under Cavalry Fund that buys debt. Another name another person. But seemingly the same?

How to fuck it all up by 'Guy Corem'.

What are you doing for fuck sake?

Best product, best delivery to date and winding up with this con-artist and his BTC auction brother to date.

How can you go so wrong.

I herewith propose that we, (we anyone interested in mining), buy them out.

They're fucking around wasting time and doing nothing.

What was it 3% @ 750,000 USD or 28 Million all that can be seen.

If you want to do it right, crowd source Spondoolies Tech on the blockchain where everyone can run it and make it as it was ment to be.

Clocks ticking.
