I hate to be a downer, but it doesn't look like it's going to make it... Over 200 left to sell and only a few days remaining...

soon as bfl products are proven working a the high hashrate I predict some 25 ticket buyers or at least a surge in sales

And when is that going to happen? Next year?

Won't we hit 210000 before then?

It was rhetorical, already did the math... Just kinda putting it out there.

Folks waiting to buy tickets until testing of ASICs would miss out entirely because the raffle would be a bust by then.

13 days to block 210000. Testing is 20 days away if it doesn't get delayed.

I don't know why people are so apprehensive about it. The network adjusts for CPU power... ASIC isn't going to flood the blockchain with 25BTC blocks. Unlike LTC, this is intended to ensure the network has far more computing power than any attacker could muster... ASIC won't affect supply, the 210000 will, and nothing else.

I don't think the raffle would "be a bust" at any point this year or next... Hardware won is hardware. Earlier is better, but later is still a win.

The tickets have to be sold before the deciding block pops out.

I think it will be hard to keep running it after the blockchain declares the winning numbers....

Kinda like playing the lottery if the wining numbers were announced in advance.... Probably won't work out....

For some reason I had it in my head that 210000 was the deciding block. I appologize for being a dumbass.

I think some people are misunderstanding the deciding block. It's not any specific block so it can't happen before the raffle is over, the deciding block is the first block after 0:00 UTC the day after the final ticket is sold.

Just sold 112 tickets. Smiley

Getting close !!!

According to BFL (if we may believe them) they will be able to catchup quickly on their backlog, so even ordered today the winner might not get their ASIC much later than the ppl that pre-ordered in July Wink
