You can't really blame board manufacturers for trying to make a profit. It's called capitalism.
Ahh hurr duurrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. No shit sherlock
You cant really blame me for breathing air its called living.
my point is that they are running the risk of losing money with current prices and production volume.
Their ventures may simply not be profitable if they cannot shift enough volume in the next 6 months.
Investors venture would also most likely move from a ROI of 1 year to an ROI of at least 2, possibly 3.
If/Once the price tanks or difficulty sky rockets they will be left holding a warehouse of specialized devices whose only use is to lose money unless you have access to free electricity (ie solar).
Well you can't really expect them to sell them at a loss, especially when order books are swamped.
Their order books are not swapped, they have less than 100 orders - for any company Id call that peanuts.
I'm really not too sure how the market is going to do with the block reward drop and prices. We can speculate all we want, but in reality we're just going to have to wait it out. That's going to have a direct response on FPGA costs as well. The more profitable mining becomes the higher I see manufacturers slowly driving costs. We'll see....
Indeed, I will be interested to see how quickly your order turns up.
Im still considering ordering one for a test myself, Id like to order 20 but alas their shipping times would need to be quicker for my to avoid a a long ROI.
