I feel ashamed about my rashly writing. True it is it can't be GenTwo. I just keep my guess about the number of blades then.

I think you are both wrong. Gen 2 Blades were not announced to hold Gen 2 CHIPS. They were simply said to be a new design of mining blade (USB, possibly case and fans). A new Generation of Blades is definitely possible, though I would assume based on Gen 1 chips.

oh, yeah, you are right.  I have been referring to Gen 2 blades as "the New Blades", which hold Gen 1 chips.  I hadn't thought of them as a Gen2 blade until you put it like that.
In any case, no one should feel ashamed.  It's a common mistake, obviously, cause people keep bringing it up.
But, in the context of Blade v2, then you might be right.  In the context of Chip v2, there's no way those are close to being ready right now.

I propose to keep the wording "gen2" for the new CHIPS only, to avoid confusion.

So, a dictionary of bladealogy:
Old Blades    old blades, overclockable, usb controller?!
New Blades   new blades with ethernet controller for easier farm menagment, non-overclockable?!
Gen2 Blades  future tech

Correct?! Anything else?!

Old USBs    old usb erupters
New USBs   new version with different colors (currently on sell)

This makes Monero a better candidate to deserve the term "digital cash".

That looks good, and that's how I had it organized in my head.

I see an issue, and that is that we may have a Blade v3 before Gen2 Blades come out.

So, I propose the following:

Old Blade = Blade1
New Blades = Blade2
Newer blades = Blade+n

Anything with Gen2 chips = G2Blade1, G2Blade2, etc

We also now have USB1, USB2, etc

Ok, make sense to me. Good luck to educate all newcomers...

Price of BFL Single: $2499 for 50Ghs.

Price for 5x AM blades: 3.5btc x 5 x 130 = $2275 for 50Ghs.

Every single BFL device that has been pre-ordered just got undercut. I would expect nearly every rational actor with a BFL preorder to cancel immediately. Friedcat just bankrupted them.

this realization just made me so happy..... it nearly brought a tear to my eye.

Are the proceeds from this new blade sale going to be reserved to help deploy gen 2 or will they be included in next week's dividends?

I've given up understanding freedomno1 long ago...  Cheesy After all, maybe it's not my English  Smiley

I think FC only sold few hundreds blades. That's a totally out of nowhere guess without any fact backing it, but given the short time it took to sold out, my feeling is that it was rather limited. If that's the case, it was fun to see but won't have much impact on dividends.

In my opinion what is really important here, though, is the impact of seeing such prices, for other businesses. That's true for BFL because the maths are easy to do and everybody with a pre-order got screwed immediately (in case they still didn't get it until today...). But beyond that, a key point here is that it makes everybody wonder a bit more before choosing between (i) making a pre-order right now with many uncertainties, or (ii) wait and buy hardware from AM later, to get it in hand just days later.

It has become obvious for everybody that AM is adjusting prices quickly and smartly. Many were shouting that AM was overpricing, but today we made a step further the road of realizing that as we get closer to the delivery time windows of some competitors (KnC first I think, maybe BitFury), the prices of AM will also get much more comparable with them. I'm curious to see the pricing of AM beginning of October: it is possible that all KnC customers get screwed like today's BFL ones with a single message of fc. Interesting times ahead, I'm happy to stand on this side!

You should know that a very large IPO is about to hit btct.co. Historically when this happens, most other securities dip as people switch securities.

(In 2012 I feel bad for BFL's original investors. In 2013 it was becoming a bad investment investors could see a mile away, the smile references AM being cheaper than BFL's original units soon)

Every single BFL device that has been pre-ordered just got undercut. I would expect nearly every rational actor with a BFL preorder to cancel immediately. Friedcat just bankrupted them.



bfl is hashing lots of th as we speak.  they won't go bankrupt. just look at the unknown  hashrate


http://blockchain.info/pools  

16% of 550th is  88th   or 176 "new" mini rigs .  don't you think bfl is using some mini-rigs to stay afloat?  Maybe not 176 but 20 or 30 or 40 of them.
https://ghash.io/
This pool is also counted as unknown, so....

Title of the topic was "limited quantity" so propably not more then 100. It sold out so quickly...


 thanks so that drops the number down to 50-65th  still room for 40x 500gh units.  I only say it because they have not sold much in a while, yet they still are open. 20th would keep them afloat. it would be about 150 coins a day.  they could stick around and ship out some gear to keep the hounds at bay so to speak. still waiting on 2 jallys from them, but I paid the older lower prices and I canceled 3 little singles while they let us do cancellations. the 3 blades I ordered today will do nicely. even at the 5btc price the are worth it as they allow me to offload  a lot of asic sticks.

I completely agree and that's why I've always stuck with companies that make their own chips.  That 'rule' has served me quite well.  I'm not advocating for Peta-mine here. I'm just stating that others may be investing in a large IPO that will demand people sell other positions in order to invest.

However...

Asicminer:
  Currently having difficulty maintaining running blades.  In fact, in friedcat's most recent post he even mentioned that one of the reasons they aren't posting an actual hashing meter is because it would require them to perform more maintenance (leading one to assume they are laxed on the maintenance and letting people see that would be a problem).  This is further exacerbated by mysterious network issues that cause them to be unable to process all available transactions (losing fee's) and leading to orphaned blocks (highest orphaned block count of any mining pool).  These same 'network issues' are frequently friedcat's excuse as to why hashing seems to be going offline.  How hard is it to hire quality sys admins in China anyway?

Labcoin:
  Small time player with questionable trust issues.  Their stock price is already over priced considering the % of the network they will be able to realistically maintain being late to the game on old technology with limited funding.

ActiveMining:
  Complete silence from them is leading investors to lose confidence.  If you look at what they are offering and compare it to their competition, it's hard to see how they will make shareholders any profit with a 16GH, power hungry chip that realistically won't be out until mid November.

Given the state of available securities it is easy to see why people might be open to investment in a company like Peta-Mine.
