@FUR11 you are very WRONG with this post: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=99497.msg8848303#msg8848303

I quote:
----
This is beyond hilarious:
Quote
Q: Can I dig a fish pond?
Ore mining machine is not directly in the ponds.
-------
End of quote.


There was NEVER such a translation output (about ponds) from my translator. He is not 100% accurate but after I proof-read his work the result is good.

That said,

1. it's a work in progress - meaning wiki-style proposals for edits are welcome
2. So far, it is  funded 100% from my pocket until I get to 100 usd or so.



And the rest of you guys who laugh at the "fish pond" mis-translation , I totally agree it's beyond hilarious! But it's never been written by me in the thread :    [ANN] ASICMINER Informer - an English speaking News Hub for all things friedcat - https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=768327.0

I/we have never used google translate so far. Only manual work.

Bye for now and don't be easy to get fooled, check your facts!

While I value your contrarian opinion as much as Vycid's (he saved me a lot of money) it would be downright obvious if dividends had been paid as posters would be whooping with delight or raging at Friedcat.  Your last post was nothing more than a troll.  Please refrain from poking others solely to get a reaction.

Generally I would agree with you.  As you can see I am not a frequent poster and not one who is prone to rise to the bait, but in this instance I felt it couldn't hurt to politely ask RS to refrain from pure trolling.  Mostly, though, I hoped my words would prevent me from having to read three pages of counter-trolling like this:

In the current mining climate (declining BTC value, exponentially increasing difficulty, fierce competition) it is hard enough for an ASIC manufacturer to survive, let alone thrive.

I would not expect anything in terms of dividends. Gen2 was vaporware and Gen3 a bit of a dud due to a design mistake that significantly increased power consumption. I think the best we can hope for is for friedcat to roll over any earnings from Gen3 to accelerate and perfect development of Gen4. Shareholders looking for short term gains will be disappointed. In the long run, I think AM is still well positioned to come out on top and worth the risk of holding shares.

Just trying to work out how "fail, fail" = "much success in future"?  Wink

The fierce competition will not disappear, the BTC price is falling fast, AM will not suddenly do PR properly (PR representative promised 8 months ago?!?), or probably even build an English website, and who knows what Gen4 will be like .... given that past behaviour is the best predictor of future behaviour, my hopes are not high.

As a shareholder I wish I was wrong ....

I don't actually believe in the concept of long-term investing in AM. Why invest in someone that doesn't run a real company and you have no idea where he lives? We all invested in the first place because of the dividends they were paying out.

Hence the share price now being 1/10 to 1/20th of what it once was. No dividends = amazing amount of risk

I also believe that this is the way to go! The Bitcoin price is just too low at the moment, even ROCKMINER decided to postpone their 2 PH/s mining operation.... AM just doesn't seem to have enough of a margin to spend the income as dividends. I think the best thing to do would be to order massive amounts of gen 4 chips ASAP.

That was exactly their policy with gen 3. How did that work out?

Bottom line, if they aren't paying dividends, share price will slide and slide. There is no way AM can wipe out  the competition because of "lowest cost". Business ain't that simple.

Yeah, but gen 3 had two or three big problems: About half as efficient as planned, at least two months to late, focus on selling the chip when the mining market got much too saturated (in combination with higher power consumption of BE200) and wasting 2-3 months on selling the chip before self-mining. In addition we saw a steep decline of the BTC price, which AM couldn't have prevented.
That being said, if things worked out better, we'd have had a gen 3 chip almost twice as efficient, self-mining in March/April, and potentially a better price. I do see where at least half of those things wouldn't necessarily be a problem with gen 4!

AM just doesn't seem to have enough of a margin to spend the income as dividends. I think the best thing to do would be to order massive amounts of gen 4 chips ASAP.

 Rockminer postponed their 2 PH/s mining operation because there wasn't enough margin left to pay friedcat and electricity costs let alone make a profit.  AM had the idea -

 "We will rent the excessive hashing power to financial and technical capable people, accepting full deposits at the market price, shipping the devices and collecting a certain PPS rate based on the theoretical hashrate."

 of course, AM was a little late for that game after trying for too long to sell chips that did not meet their own efficiency expectations. Sure if bitcoin price were to go higher, they might be able to get a little more mileage out of them but the chips are middle of the road as far as efficiency and a higher bitcoin price would create a higher demand ergo a higher price for all chips.  As it stands, Rockminer was selling some of their equipment below cost.  It's not a friendly market right now.
  If AM can incorporate the lessons learned from mistakes made with the gen 3 into a gen 4 chip and can produce it at a cost that will be profitable with today's bitcoin price, I say go for it!  Order up the gen 4 chips!  Otherwise, I would think there is no rush.
