It was interesting to follow the discussion about this. It is true that the share price seems rather high considering the hash power it represents right now. Compared to some perpetual mining bonds, it is true. However, companies like Cognitive intend to stay ahead of the pack in the long run. If they can do that and at the same time the dollar price of bitcoin goes up, the this a is really good long-term investment.

Ultimately the whole success of the bitcoin economy depends on whether bitcoin becomes widely accepted and as a result whether there is  a steady flow of dollars into bitcoins. If, as we all hope, this happens, those who can keep up the pace will win big time.

Isn't the share price of Basic Mining even more outrageous considering the amount of shares out there? Or am I missing something?

I think, you are right. Their hash power per share is 3-4 times less than that of Cognitive. At the same time the share price is similar.

Is it? BM is currently 445G/h with another 500 in transit, I'm not sure where Cog is currently, is it 83 and 160ish after the 2nd avalon arrives this weekend?  BM has 5x more shares outstanding so unless I am way off on Cog's current hashrate.....

He said 330+ Gh/s .. by the end of this week.

By the end of the week and 330gh/s? Nah, more like by three hours ago and 393gh/s! Cheesy

Today I received the final two of our four Avalons, and now they're all happily hashing away at a location with redundant power and internet Smiley

And who doesn't like pictures!?

Shiny new boxes:


Protip: Before ever turning on an Avalon that has been through the mail: Always check for loose nuts!


Driving to the Avalons' new home...


And here they are, hashing away at a steady 320+ gh/s Smiley (One of them has an extra hash unit.)


This puts our total hashrate at:
 320 from the Avalons
 60 from the SC Single
 13 from the FPGAs
= a total of 393gh/s mining for us right now Smiley

And BFL still owes us 7 more SC singles, which equals an additional 420gh/s which we will receive very soon.

Then after we receive our Avalon chips we will be hashing at well over 1th/s Smiley

Cheers,
Garrett

quick comparison between bASIC and Cognitive:

bASIC mining - 51625 outstanding shares -
Total hashrate: 925 Gh/s now
Hashrate/share: 180 Mh/s now
Price: 0.73BTC

Cognitive - 10420 outstanding shares
Total hashrate: 393 Gh/s now, 813 Gh/s when BFL delivers.
Hashrate/share: 377 Mh/s now, 780 Mh/s later.
Price: 0.75BTC

What did I miss?

Edit: so it's 33.7 Mh/s duh.

Couple of additional differences:
BM pays out 70% vs Cog 50% in Dividends
BM also has over 1000 BTC in reserves

Both funds look very promising at this point though and the owners have been actively adding to their hashing power.

much less than originally agreed to Sad

but im a significant cog share holder so whatever is best for the company....

Yea,  it was a very awkward situation and I don't envy either party.  I'm just looking for some transparency on the deal so I can better assess the value of the company.

200 shares, but when they were worth much less than now.

I though the treasury shares dropped faster than they should have.  Makes sense now, thanks.

A bit misleading if the other 50% is reinvested in hardware. That is a plus to most of us.

True - it was not meant to mislead, but I was pointing out that for a dividend investor BM was paying out more at the current hash rates and difficultly level.  That combined with the reserves that BM has provides adequate growth opportunity.

COG - " 50% of mining revenue will be distributed proportionally among shareholders as dividends, and 50% of mining revenue will be added to our growth fund"

BM - "70% of all revenue generated by bASIC-MINING will be distributed to shareholders on a daily basis. To ensure that bASIC-MINING can continue to grow and remain competitive as the BTC network grows, 30% of mining revenue will be held in reserve to purchase new hardware."

I am bullish on both of these funds and think they are doing a very good job.

It's funny that BM has over 1000 BTC in their "growth fund", but they are still issuing new shares for hardware purchasing.

What is the point of having idle fund sitting there, and issue more shares to dilute people's holding?

Diluting the company 3.25% to double the hash rate is far cheaper than spending coin. Basic math (or in bitcoin terms, maths)

After (or if ever) BFL delivers Cognitive shares will be further dilluted by COG.F conversion. I think you should add 2000 additional shares to current number, if my calculation s correct.

COG.F Contracts will be converted after the Avalon chips are delivered and hashing in September. That is a variable not even included in the above calculation; Our BFL orders have nothing to do with COG.F Smiley

And for those who may have missed it, here is last night's update:

It was interesting to follow the discussion about this. It is true that the share price seems rather high considering the hash power it represents right now. Compared to some perpetual mining bonds, it is true. However, companies like Cognitive intend to stay ahead of the pack in the long run. If they can do that and at the same time the dollar price of bitcoin goes up, the this a is really good long-term investment.

Ultimately the whole success of the bitcoin economy depends on whether bitcoin becomes widely accepted and as a result whether there is  a steady flow of dollars into bitcoins. If, as we all hope, this happens, those who can keep up the pace will win big time.

Isn't the share price of Basic Mining even more outrageous considering the amount of shares out there? Or am I missing something?

I think, you are right. Their hash power per share is 3-4 times less than that of Cognitive. At the same time the share price is similar.

Is it? BM is currently 445G/h with another 500 in transit, I'm not sure where Cog is currently, is it 83 and 160ish after the 2nd avalon arrives this weekend?  BM has 5x more shares outstanding so unless I am way off on Cog's current hashrate.....
He said 330+ Gh/s .. by the end of this week.  

By the end of the week and 330gh/s? Nah, more like by three hours ago and 393gh/s! Cheesy

Today I received the final two of our four Avalons, and now they're all happily hashing away at a location with redundant power and internet Smiley

And who doesn't like pictures!?

Driving to the Avalons' new home...


And here they are, hashing away at a steady 320+ gh/s Smiley (One of them has an extra hash unit.)


This puts our total hashrate at:
 320 from the Avalons
 60 from the SC Single
 13 from the FPGAs
= a total of 393gh/s mining for us right now Smiley

And BFL still owes us 7 more SC singles, which equals an additional 420gh/s which we will receive very soon.

Then after we receive our Avalon chips we will be hashing at well over 1th/s Smiley
