Would it be easy for me to sell 1 week mining contracts for my setup? ~3.2 G/hash or is this too small?
Wondering if there would be much interest in these kinds of deals.  Does anyone have experience with arrangements like these?  
Please feel free to share.

I think 3.2Gh/s is decent. I've seen people sell contracts for 2x6990(~1.5Gh/s) before.

I bought a mining contract for 500 000 shares with a hash speed of about 3.5 Ghash, I think it's easier to sell the contract if you state share numbers instead of a speed. As it makes it more exact and is not effected by downtime Smiley

No you say x amounts of shares independent if they are rejected,stale or accepted. The risk for that is on the purchaser. I would bid 15 BTC for 500 000 shares, if I can point them to any pool Smiley

You can use this calculator you put in 50 as difficulty and the amount of coins= amount of shares

I think that's correct at least Smiley

How do mining contracts work?
I want to build an ASIC miner, but am more keen in the challenge and actually being able to finance it than operating the miner.
So either selling the result or renting it out sounds rather interesting.

Either you sell a amount of hashing power or a amount of shares, for a certain amount of BTC Smiley

There are some big ASIC companies starting up but none that I know of is actually mining atm, most of them are at the idea or planning stage of their development.
