I've seen some people saying that it'll be great once AM gets its self mining going again. What is a realistic amount of PH that AM can get online? What percentage of the network do we think it will be by the time it's up and running? I seem to remember a figure of 30 ph from franchises.
20ph from franchises inside China https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=99497.msg6465166#msg6465166

About 20PH/s franchised inside China and about 3 PH/s solo mining in AM data centers. Friedcat doesn't seem to be that interested in mining at the moment. As long as the chips sell, it's better to just sell them instead of use them to mine. They earn more revenue and have a shorter turnaround time (sold instantly instead of "mining back" the investment) and thus can be paid out and reinvested much faster. Although I agree that a decent amount of self mining makes sense (BTC price increasing, constant income, independence)

I should have gotten into Bitcoin back in 1992...

From the link posted above that 20ph goal is long term. By the time that's up and running our franchisees would have 10% or under of the total network. How big of a facility would AM or it's franchisees need to deploy this much hash power?

With 3ph solo mining shouldn't we just use a mining pool to stabilize returns I realize the overall gain is higher solo mining but with around 1% of the network it seems like it will be feast or famine self mining which may cause cash flow problems.

I'm asking a lot of questions today! Can someone explain why this is good news? If our next gen chip is going to be open source then how do we have any advantage as far as producing the chip? Can't anyone use the open source designs to produce the chip itself? Pardon my ignorance on this subject.

Chip design is not open!
Only design for reference boards. That is, boards where chips are to be assembled.

Exactly. Now potentially everyone can design their own board, improve on it and build/sell a miner. Also, since the design can be improved, the efficiency may get better.

I'm getting the sense that traders are more enticed by instability than stability and buy for the emotional roller coaster ride. The ability to now see the positive future apparently doesn't interest them and they'd be more content with failure looming overhead. Not sure what the experience level is of the investors in AM is but it sure doesn't appear to follow any successful methods I'm aware of.

 Grin Already did. Anyone that has been around the block even once with ASICminer/FC knows there is no panic. Things are lost in translation and in internet forums.
they're not exctly "lost" there's just FUD on this thread. over and over again.  until fc repeats what he said before.

this will last about 5 days.  then FUD starts all over again. never fails.

Sales price will be adjusted if BTC rises.

So if we link the current price of 0,5$ to the current BTC price of 666$ we get a to-date sales price of 0.00075 BTC/G.

Using a factor of 0.9 for an average future price and retaining 1/3 for Gen4, I come to a gross-income per share of 0.06756757 BTC for the 60P.

Forget to ask FC will they change the chip price based on BTC price. It may sound silly, but I don't think the chip price is so flexible. That is a huge risk, because BTC price can be really crazy.

Maybe we can suggest a BTC buy/sell program where "X" amount of BTC is bought or sold each day to average prices and maintain a BTC to USD ratio.
that's a good idea.  and fc may be doing that already (me guessing, I have no info to confirm this), since if you go to buy 30K btc today, where would you do that?  not on any exchange I know: nowhere... so it has to be done on a regular basis and this would average it out. as well as support btc price on some level.  this is what I call the anti-DISH btc acceptance.  instead of converting btc to usd, cash in converted to btc. brilliant. and the way of the future.

I've seen some people saying that it'll be great once AM gets its self mining going again. What is a realistic amount of PH that AM can get online? What percentage of the network do we think it will be by the time it's up and running? I seem to remember a figure of 30 ph from franchises.

Friedcat doesn't seem to be that interested in mining at the moment. As long as the chips sell, it's better to just sell them instead of use them to mine. They earn more revenue and have a shorter turnaround time (sold instantly instead of "mining back" the investment) and thus can be paid out and reinvested much faster. Although I agree that a decent amount of self mining makes sense (BTC price increasing, constant income, independence)

"Friedcat doesn't seem to be that interested in mining at the moment. As long as the chips sell, it's better to just sell them instead of use them to mine."

Well, effectively this is what he's pursuing since development started on gen 3. Focussing on chip sales, rather than mining. In my Q/A on April 21st, he stated that air cooled mining will start May/June and immersion cooled mining in June/July. Right now things sound a tad 'evasive' as if this isn't top priority (any more?)
Which doesn't have to be a bad thing. If the chips are selling well, just continue doing that.
