WHERE IS THE HERO WE NEED BUT NOT DESERVE?!

Once AM starts self-mining again, I would really love to see them use p2pool.
I expect that more miners would jump into p2pool if p2pool's share of the total hashrate is greater than now (i.e. greater than ~1% of the total hashrate). This would really be great for all of bitcoin. As a side-effect it would also once again paint AM in a very positive light.

Either this or start our own pool that mimics the payouts of Ghash.io.  I think most people would like to get off of Ghash if there were an option as profitible to hop into.  Running a pool would be a really nice way to get continuing income as well.  With the hashrate we command it shouldn't be hard to get the ball rolling on a ghash competitor, maybe even just straight up buy out a smaller pool that already exists.

ASICMINERPOOL.

DOOOOO EEEEEEET!

mmpool.org does the same merge mining as ghash.io, and uses DGM, which is a more fair method of mining.
so, there is already a pool out there to compete with ghash.io.... you just need to point your workers there.

here's me: http://mmpool.org/user/rgs (that particular worker has been hashing there from ~46hours into this round)

if you feel the large pools are dominating, join a smaller pool... there are plenty of options if you want to choose something else.
but.. please, join mmpool.org if you feel ghash is becoming scarily close to a network breach.

June-July is here, lets get mining already! AM should have its own pool for solo mining and our franchisees mining operations too.

Cool.. is Spondoolies selling cheap chips and providing open source designs too???  

(I have nothing against Spondoolies machines, they look well made and sexy for datacenter stuff..  I just can't afford one, because i've lost 90% my BTC simply by proudly holding my Asicminer shares...  Stockholm syndrome and all that stuff)..

Network hashing speed crossed 100 Ph

Quote
May-June for air cooling and June-July for immersion cooling. They are only capable of 3PH. Most should go franchising or as chips for other vendors' OEM products.

It would be nice to see live hash meter from ASICminer farm, or does Friedcat want to mine in secret ? its not very honest way to shareholders ... we're waiting so damn long, its summer again.  Undecided

Funniest part of that was the clause that $200k deposit is non refundable upon a late bid.
I don't understand, can you clarify please?

+1

also, nothing to do with hardware manufacturers whatsoever - the bitcoin network hashrate is in the hands of us, the miners of Bitcoin.
mmpool.org just found a block, best time to hop in is the start of a new round! do it now  Wink

He Is talking about the auction of seized silk road bitcoins by US Marshalls.
To participate in the auction you must deposit 200K USD to the federal government. If you bid late, they keep the deposit.

Not upon a late bid, but this:

Failure to provide the USMS with a copy of the wire transmittal receipt by the deadline will result in disqualification, forfeiture of the deposit, and award to another bidder.

The markets are going to need to find a way to fix this issue and I agree if Asicminer hashrate was online and not using Ghash it would be good for the security of the network.

Going to throw in some speculation, think their will be a branching out or fork of the protocol if the 50% concern stays around long enough.

divs wont come out before all 3 batch are produced and sold. @lastupdate 2 weeks ago, FC was beginning to sell batch2 (60PH). cant say wether he launched 3rd batch or how far did he sold batch 2. remember he said they had some delays in selling chips because of clients not having sufficient ressources and was waiting to see how it would be all sort out before considering launching batch 3.

some update about this would be appreciated although i doubt it because it only has been 2 weeks since the last one.. maybe in a month or so we will have some bone to chew on.

If I remember correctly, FC was asked how long he anticipates the current batch (#2) to be sold out entirely. One month to 1.5 months was quoted, so if that holds true we shouldn't be seeing batch #3 hit the market for sale until at least start of July. Assuming another 30-45 days for batch #3 to sell and I believe we have early to middle of August before we have income to distribute.

Is anyone else reading the tea leaves differently?

It's getting a little challenging to watch significant movements happening on the periphery while there's no cash flow joy for the core of the business which gives shareholders the impression it's taking a royal dump. Better clarity on how this path is going to benefit the business would be in order. It's one thing to work in your business but more importantly is the focus on your business.

Okay, so we need some clarification on when the revenue will be distributed. I propose the following statement and questions:

Quote
Friedcat, there are still some uncertainties remaining after your last statement. Please understand that we - the shareholders - don't mean to appear greedy, but are merely uneasy given the unforeseeable challenges with gen 3 (increased power consumption, difficulties in May, no anticipated dividends by the end of May) and almost 3 months with no dividends. We also understand that the business and competition has tensed up dramatically and a return of 600% of the IPO price as with gen 1 simply won't be possible anymore. We'd also like to express our appreciation for the increase in communication concerning the Open Source Block Erupter Project.

- What were the unexpected things happening in May that toppled the projected dividends for May?
- Given the ratio of 1/3 retained and 2/3 paid out of the revenue, is this after deducting costs for upcoming batches/expenses or are those part of the 1/3 of retained capital?
- How many PH/s of gen 3 have already been shipped by now?
- Has the "60 PH/s batch" progressed any further? When is it supposed to be completely done? How much has already been sold?
- There are still many uncertainties of when the dividends are supposed to begin again: Is this going to happen during the selling of the "60 PH/s batch"? During the selling, but at the end /begin of the respective month? After the whole batch has been sold? After following batches (financed by that that 60 PH/s batch!?) have been sold completely?
- Could you please provide an estimate on when the first dividend can be expected now - This month? July? Later?
- Could you give us a very rough estimate on when gen 4 can be expected. e.g. is tape-out still expected this year? Q1/2/3/4 next year?

I would also ask what the exact status of self-mining and franchising is.
