Because they are legit. They are ASIC vendors. See https://www.kncminer.com .

i waiting your scyript.cc report
then maybe i will join there
if it can be beetwen 0/8 and 2/8 Smiley

No need to wait, you can assess them yourself. Just look for their  business registration, mining addresses, pictures of their datacenter, find asic endorsement etc. Can you find them? I cant either so its not likely going to be a 0 or even 2.

There's lots of photos of the KnC farm.


The obvious should be posted here that being legit doesn't mean they are a good investment. It just means they aren't likely a ponzi. KnC has screwed over a large number of their customers, and I believe there's a class action at least in the formative stages against them. Cointerra was another hardware vendor that had a cloud mining operation that was legit, but they are now bankrupt and all indications are that their customers are going to get screwed.

Added. It ended up scoring 'only' 4 points, despite there not being a shred of evidence they own any hashrate. OTOH, its a fairly small IPO and cryptsy has more to lose than to gain by robbing customers over 140TH. That is, if you trust cryptsy. One important thing to note is that they give no information on fee structure, so its anyone's guess how much they will pay out going forward.

scrypt.cc was added too, scoring a solid 6 ponzi score. Their domain registration info is not hidden, but also impossible for me to verify (street view shows what appears to be a garden), there is no company registration info, so I rated them as if anonymous.

AFAIK Zoomhash are not paying out for the same reason cryptx and cex.io are not paying out: mining revenue < fees.
While Ive not rated them, from what Ive seen they appear to be honoring their contracts. Dont blame them for not reading/understanding what you bought.

I think Cryptsy was just testing the market with the MN1 and MN2 contracts. I remember the initial price (set by Cryptsy) for MN1 was much higher than on other sites, but they've sold all the shares pretty fast.
Then they started selling MN2 (also high priced) but those weren't moving too quickly. The payout rate was very regular (every day) and strangely high, comparing to competition.
Not too long after they sold all the shares the payouts started to noticeably decrease, there were some delays etc.

I had a strong impression that they were intentionally paying too much to give false ROI hopes and push all the shares, but that's just my gut feeling.

Anyhow, in Sep they announced their new, large scale mining operation (Mintsy) but think the project is abandoned, last update on 2nd Oct.

I think your gut feeling is spot on. The MN contracts were introduced in April, 2014 (to great fanfare), and the payouts were pretty regular, aside from a missed day here and there. Everything was copacetic...then things abruptly started going south around mid-Sept. Payments would be "missed" every couple of days, then every other day, then several days in a row. People started getting pissed, so BigVern converted all MN1 & MN2 shares to "MN", and even purchased an extra 20TH "out of his own pocket" to placate the masses. Such a generous fellow.

So, TLDR, it's just another ponzi.

I think too few ponzis collapsed in recent weeks. I was hoping to to see double digits. Which means there must be still a few more to come or if they survived they would gain more credibility...

Most of the collapsed ones were betting on the difficulty ramping up fast so they can pay out less. Since it stalled a bit, they got shaken out.

Now the remaining ponzies might have employed two different strategies:
- sell the investments for fiat and buy back as needed
- promote more aggressively and attract the obviously eager marketplace to invest more and keep the schemes going

I think option two is the most logical. Option one is not a plausible theory, I do not think they predicted slower diff dynamics and probably have spent BTC on hookers and blow in Vegas.

On this tune we confirm we will be offering option to buy GH/s for EUR Cheesy Soon!

Depends on when you bought it though, if you purchased this year, you lost money... if you purchased some in 2010, then you made a sweet deal.  I think if you were getting in crypto today and wanted to see huge gains, you need to invest in a good alternative coin as well. I'm not suggesting dumping bitcoin, but having another a few coins wouldn't hurt. I think Ripple, Stellar, Storj.io, and Clams are undervalued. This year, I've already made 160% on clams alone.

Anyway, I think the serious ponzi problem is cryptodouble right now, they're all over the forums and eating tons of coins. When they implode, it's going to be bad for the community... if you believe the amount of coins they show they have in their wallets, they have in some cases 10% or more of some of the crypto in circulation.
