these three carry the highest probability

Why is this?

They're the only ones that demonstrate both the "since mid-July" timeframe (the two addresses) and the ~20PH earmark that friedcat had mentioned back in the beginning of the summer months.  Again, the total solo+franchised hashrate will probably be the result of a combination of sources coming online along different timeframes.  I'm saying that these addresses fulfill the characteristics we've been waiting for/anticipating for months.  It could be equivalently true that friedcat+franchisees control a smaller share of the network, but keep in mind that the node at 193.187.79.76has risen almost in exact correlation with this additional hashrate from over this period. 

Who else is putting that kind of hashing power online right now, and with what hardware?  I realize my speculation is inductive, but I'd be interested to see what counter-points the group might be able to offer.

Lots are adding hashing power...Bitfury has a new 20 MW facility, BFL (lol I know, but they do have gear now), Bitmain, SP-Tech is pumping out 4TH rigs, the list goes on.  I would assume that AM has a chuck of the recent hash power, but definitely not all or most of it.

Keep in mind that most of the values we're watching (such as on bitcoinwisdom) represent a 504/1008/2016 block average.  These last two spikes likely represent one or two large datacenters going online solely due to the short timescale over which they were added to the network.  There wasn't this kind of spike when Bitmain and Rockminer released the S3 and RK-Box, respectively, to the consumer mining markets.

I suppose it very well could be AM, but all we can do is speculate since they do not give out any info.

Question: "Does ASICMINER anticipate being in a position to resume dividends in the month of September?".

What is even the point of asking this? friedcat specifically stated he hoped to resume dividends in August, so if that doesn't materialise, what do you hope to gain other than wasting a few peoples time by asking the same thing about September?

I think this sort of thing is why friedcat doesn't bother communicating with us anymore.


Is the interview not at the end of August? The value in having clarity on this would be if the answer is "no", then we would be 2.5 months into self-mining, and I believe an explanation would be warranted for that. I also believe someone is already asking a question regarding the dividends for the interview, so the other aspect I am interested in would be if AM has future plans for devoting a person or group of people towards the advertising of the company's products. A lot of shareholders are already pointing out the need for improvement in this area so I am sure it will be addressed before Gen4.

In regards to the communication aspect, this has been discussed ad nauseam. Fried Cat has repeatedly acknowledged the need for consistent and clear communication to his shareholders. This would insinuate he does see the value in providing as much clarity to us as strategically viable, so I think your assertion that his communication has tapered off due to the nature of the inquiries is imprecise. The vast majority of us are patient, understanding and quite loyal towards him given he has been a mysterious character until a couple of weeks ago.

This should be covered by operating costs.

You're an operating cost.

Final 42 hours

Currently:

BitCrane-Tech: 1 @ 0.30
sunxiaoxiao    : 1 @ 0.30
Empty           : 3

I'll take 1 @ 0.3 BTC

Sunxaioxaio is part of asicminer and has already made a bid

I believe they are just placed within his current guides. Hopefully with the imminent shipment of SP-30 GB orders these advertisements may see more eyes, even if it's mostly people who have already purchased. Can somebody correct me if I'm missing anything.

Yes, Discus Fish is becoming stronger and stronger. And then we have that mysterious 193.187.79.76 address hashing around 10% atm.

Let's just hope AM owns a big chunk. Smiley

That IP is from Kiev so no AM self-mining with 10%. It's our friend Bitfury.

Can you please share when did that IP started mining big time?

But honestly, what's up with GHash.IO!? They're in a free fall right now... Can this still be variance or are they about to go bust!? Maybe they can't pay for running their equipment at current prices?
What are the best address-candidates for AM mining at this moment?

My hope is some form of stuxnet that overclocked and burned out all the miners, a man can dream!

It would be idiotic to be telegraphing the company's next moves to the competition.

I don't think it would be idiotic, just a waste of time as they would be stating the obvious. What are AM going to do next?

Keep producing miners to sell or self-mine with.
Produce more gen 3 chips if profitable.
Buy the gen 4 mask.

It's hardly rocket science now is it. I don't understand why people pretend that this info is super valuable and under no circumstances can be allowed to fall into competitors hands. What exactly are competitors going to do apart from the exact same thing they were going to do anyway? Build and sell/use miners.

I agree with you about the rest though.

Whoever ran the sig campaign is kind of an idiot....

Started skipping over higher ranked forum members because those spots were "full" instead of letting those people in and having less spots for lower members.  Choosing a full member over a Hero member... when you obviously value hero members more (they are paid more) is idiotic.  I tried to explain how it was stupid several times, but the language barrier prevented that.

Still have it in my sig though because, well I am a share holder... but sucks I should have gotten something for it and was passed up.

Yeah, I saw your comment and the response and was simply bewildered. Friedcat seriously needs to find someone who can understand, read and write English properly.

Did a bit of blockchain.info shoveling and found 2 IPs that came from china and found blocks in the last 4 days.

https://blockchain.info/blocks/223.244.137.22 (found 1 block to date)
https://blockchain.info/blocks/58.241.250.107 (found 2 blocks to date)

I was about to post this, then looked at the output address and noticed it was the same. https://blockchain.info/address/1GcF7j3YH8Qs8hvNEe7zbrQZftMU6sRLfu This address is getting blocks form IPs all over the world! So I'm guessing this has nothing to do with ASICminer. But it's still really interesting. Huh

SO, from my cursory look. There are a few options:

1.) They are solo mining and didn't get any blocks in the last 4 days
2.) They are solo mining and their IP is obfuscated.
3.) They are mining in a pool.
4.) They are not mining.

I will be looking at the blockchain for suitable candidates and report back if I find anything.

Interesting.


Well, #4 can likely be ruled out barring something severe in the background as AM revealed self-mining was up and running back in the middle of July. My gut tells me that reality lies with #2 or #3.

I think that #3 is most likely the case...probably Discus Fish.

Good, at least I am not out of line in how I was thinking.  I have said it before and I will say it again, I will gladly do some PR work for AM.  Do I have experience?  Not really... are there people better suited for the job them me?  Absolutely.  Would I be better then what we currently have?  Oh god yes.
