I am upgrading my FPGA miners from Butterfly Labs (BFL) to ASIC.
As many of you know, BFL offers dollar-for-dollar trade-in of up to 50% of the ASIC purchase price.
To raise the funds required, I would like to give those who are interested in buying ASIC SC Singles from Butterfly labs a discount*, if they buy through me.
Furthermore, I would like to get individuals who don't want to purchase a whole ASIC SC Single the opportunity to get shares now and either have me mine for them (at full PPS, I charge no fees or energy cost, but the mining pool might charge a few percent for using PPS) with the option to purchase their equipment at the same discount* as people who get shares for full units.
So here's the deal:
I'm offering 9 SC Singles at a
discounted* rate from BFL's dollar price as shares. 200 shares equals one SC Single.
If you hold 200 shares, you own the physical unit, and once they start shipping, you can request a shares transfer back to me in exchange for the hardware.
This will be free shipping to the continuous US, for international shipping fees will apply.
Even if you opted to leave them hosted at my site, you can always request a shares transfer to receive the units later.
Those who hold shares of less than 200, will receive PPS payout as a proportional fraction of hashing power for the hardware.
E.g. owning 100 shares will get you 50% hashing power of one SC Single.
The GLBSE listing PUREASIC will IPO on July 14 (next Saturday) at 10:00 EST (GLBSE time).
I will offer 1800 shares
