That's the reality.

Only it's not. If it were so, we'd have Intel miners on every house.

Do you have one?

3 months ago the Bitcoin mining revenue wasn't a billion dollars a year. So no.

You're misunderstanding, also - it wouldn't be an Intel miner. It'd be an Intel ASIC - the actual miner (PCB, cooling solution, PSU, etc) would be assembled by other companies (or enterprising individuals), and those entities would be Intel's customers.

Intel sounds like a great investment

So... with direct chip sales and an established re-seller market with loyal customers (have any Asicminer units ever had serious issues?  I know most competitors had some issues... firmware, overheating etc) I imagine that when divs do hit for gen3, they will be large and fast.

Friedcat has previously stated he likes getting bitcoin in the hands of investors and not holding it so they can do stuff with it as they see fit, so if the bulk of the chips get sold day one do board makers... would it be possible that the significant portion of the profits from all of gen 3 go into one div payment?

Seems plausible...

I think it's better to spread the dividends steadily .

Dividend prediction: 0.00151 BTC/share

I think it's better to spread the dividends steadily .

Better for who?...
If there is income from mining/sales that won't be needed for further investments/salary/hosting why would you withhold some of it and pay it a few weeks later?

If you don't want to miss the profit, then you should buy and hold shares now, and not wait until the sales are starting so you can jump in 'just in time'. Wink

Not much of a prediction after funds have already been moved to the dividend address...that is the exact same number I got.

I know that...... we've been discussing vertical integration all along.... no need to explain the obvious.

I meant Intel miners the same way we use Intel PCs, yet we all know we're referring to the chip. Did you really need this explained or were you just trying to get me down?

Anyway, so according to you, if BTC price remains at these levels, it is safe to expect Intel powered miners in what? 3 months?

I just don't see it.

It's not safe to expect anything except that existing companies will aggressively exploit emerging trends for profit. I think it is more likely that we will see one of these companies start to get involved than otherwise.

My bets are on Cypress as a first-mover, but that isn't to say I can't see Intel in the near future. At this price level, AM's window appears to be closing.

I think it's time to call some people I know at Cypress and find out what TJ has been up to  Grin

Honestly, I see this one even less possible !

AM is already a very strong brand in the Bitcoin world. I think Intel or Nvidia are the only players with enough brandname to just come and sweep everything away, but, as I said, the non-action up to now gives AM a good couple of years to work on its headstart.

Help me think something though... what would be the best way to fairly compare the scale of AM vs. Cypress ? Market cap? Ph deployed? Units deployed?  Huh

Cypress does about a billion dollars of revenue a year. They specialize in niche markets that the big players don't dominate.

The CEO, TJ Rogers, is a hardline Libertarian.

If AM is thinking about 20 PH, Cypress is thinking about 200.

For once I tend to agree with you. The higher the market cap of bitcoin, and the further the mining lags behind the price development of bitcoin, the larger the arbitrage opportunity, giving bigger hardware players a reason to get involved.

Bitcoin has been hijacked as a safe haven against the coming fiat currency crisis and this puts off all valuation attempts for bitcoin, since now the price becomes disconnected from the longterm value (as a safe haven bitcoin benefits from any short-term crisis).

As such the recent run-up in bitcoin price, albeit increasing the overall profitability of AM, has been a quite bearish development for AM in terms of bitcoin denominated share price since it invites for bigger and stronger competition, forcing AM to get a better stand as a niche player.

Having a stronger competition means that less of the future mining income will goto AM, which strengthens the argument that AM needs to find a strategy to add additional revenue streams. Simply reducing the overall cost structure won't cut it in the event of an escalating bitcoin price.

addendum: That said - I think there is a sweet spot for building a portfolio to hedge against various bitcoin price developments, i.e. a ratio between #bitcoins:#AMshares. The exact amount is likely dependent on the personal preference. At the current time a 1:2 ratio might be prudent, at a $4000/btc level a 1:1 ratio, at a $16000/btc level a 1:0.5 ratio.... you can comment on that and what you find appropriate...

addendum: The above is based on a current market evaluation of AM at 10% of mining revenue, giving AM a valuation of 800,000 btc. That makes the current AM shares rather cheap... I recommend loading up on them up to a point which you're comfortable with... (based on the ratio above)

Probability says  shares will drop further. They have dropped 26 weeks in a row now ..... and there is no good news to come out for a month or two ... plus ever reducing dividends.

Says to me every likelihood share price will continue to drop for the next 2 months minimum, probably to 0.10 to 0.15 level

I still have faith in Friedcat, but I do not see how it is possible to mine/sell/franchise an average of 10% of the network starting in 2.5 months using 40nm tech. My valuation of AM has always been based on this goal, and while I will never bet against Friedcat, it seems difficult to produce that much HW at this point.

If they can turn out enough self contained liquid cooled plug and play mining containers to deploy or franchise, I don't see how it could be a problem,  providing AM tech more or less keeps pace with the newcomers. Indeed, it is a very scalable model. How much hashing power is in one of those boxes? I bet it is staggering. Still, that is at least 3-4 months away from what I infer. 16 or so very lean weeks.

The competition leap frogged ahead using high cost hardware solutions. That gap should be closed with gen3 putting AM at least on par with for 2014. Of course it all depends on the competitiveness of gen3. which needs to be at least within a factor 2-4x efficiency and cost wise.
