Looks like enough to go and sit on the beach and ignore the forums. Also Bitmain pulled a dick move raising prices. It is a shame only the Chinese make miners these days. Who would ever trust China for anything  Roll Eyes

20 mins ago, we received a very important intelligence and we decide to increase the price of S5 by 20%. A certain competitor which we pay attention has not submit any mass production order to its wafer supplier. Only a small batch of pilot run has been submitted before the Chinese New Year. It has confirmed a long but uncertain guess that the aggressiveness get in trouble. The best time for mining bitcoin comes right now.


Looks like things are getting nasty well not that they already weren't.
Was a quick crash though from 0.03 to 0.01 there must not be any volume to support the market

I don't see why would anyone buy now. It's not like friedcat can come back now and pretend nothing happened.

I'm picking up 500 when the price hits 0.005 just on the off chance that Friedcat is just sleeping off the most epic hangover in history.

Would it be possible to sell the IP and distribute to shareholders?  It seems a shame to let the BE300 go un-produced.

With Bitfury and KNC both being in production at the same or better specs, I wouldn't be so sure that the BE300 design holds any value. That is unless its already leaked or stolen (if ASICMINER/Friedcaf has indeed been compromised or disappeared).

This probably happened already. To a different company so that they get to reclaim full ownership of the product and 0% to previous shareholders.

At this point it would make no sense to just reappear. Lots of people would be able to claim damages.

I guess it is "possible" but I don't think there's a minimum plausible chance.

>10% that ASICminer can survive already. The PR damage alone is huge, not even taking tech/financial into consideration.

It did seem like a suspicion but unless I missed it we don't have enough going evidence to prove that

Although the point about damages is an interesting one

For now I guess we will just need to keep watching to see the final outcome, a Phoenix's birth rise and fall guess we may see it all.

It's not just that they could possibly survive as a company if they tried their very best, it's also that it makes no sense from their PoV given the alternative exit strategies. Coming back would just NOT undo the damage, it would be a substantial risk for those involved. Going incognito elsewhere or selling their IP (keeping a big kitty in form of unpaid BTC) looks a lot better than coming back right into a shitstorm.

I'm afraid you have been karpeled your BTC. Even Karpeles will likely keep some of the BTC kitty he ratted out of MtGox and get to enjoy it. In this case it's not nearly as prosecutable. FC is missing. The other guy also ran a ponzi by not informing the public that he was paying dividends out of pocket with no underlying revenue, and this guy apparently is well known, but what can he actually be held accountable for under which jurisdiction.

I don't know guys, this looks a bit helpless. And the lesson here is that Havelock cannot offer much guarantee at all of the stocks they host, and provenly so.

Blaming Havelock here I dont think makes any sense. People were happily trading ASICMINER outside of any exchange, and later on the now defunct BTCT. You can't protect investors from scams 100%.

Not blaming Havelock, but stating the obvious. They don't offer protection from this sort of scams. If this happened in a regular market they would be prosecuted, but Havelock doesn't seem to have the legal muscle to do anything about it, might not even have the knowledge about the underlying operations to execute any sort of reasonable protection.

If that's not the case I'll be happy to be proven wrong but that's what it's looking like to me right now.

Not 100%?
The selection on Havelock is 100% scam or, at best, simple fail.  Only two exceptions:  Matt's betting operation, (B.EXCH; B.MINE; B.SELL), and Branny's RENT (which is above IPO, most likely another pre-NthPO pump).  The rest selling way below IPO and/or ran.

For instance, Havelock swore up and down that it's holding 100 BTC in escrow for MintSpare (ticker:MS).  The issuer hasn't been heard from for half a year or more (longer than friedcat), the price tanked (much like here), and Havelock is ...doing what Havelock does best, ignoring & denying.
MS market cap, BTW, is vacillating between 6 and 12 BTC, substantially short of the alleged 100 held in in escrow by Havelock.
Not that Havelock's own ...offering, Havelock Investment Fund (ticker:HIF) is doing much better.  Nope, tanked hard and never paid divs Sad

So yeah, somewhat less than 100% scam protection.  Especially considering recent past like Basic Mining & NeoBee.  Such concentration of fail being purely due to chance is nearly impossible.  Not unless Bitcoine4rs are an order of magnitude dumber & suckier @ business than regular people.

I disagree. Havelock has cristal clear rules and they take no responsibility for anything but listing, trades and dividend distribution. In the mintspare case, what do you suggest they do? Just give shareholders escrowed funds? That's not how it works. Also, your rant regarding concentration of failures: fail rates well within range for 1st year startups.

Havelock also makes it crystal clear in its TOS that it doe not deal with US citizens.  Both of the offerings which have not tanked (Matt's and Benny's) have been issued by US nationals from US soil.  So yeah...

Re. "fail rates well within range for 1st year startups":  Well no, they're not, but even if startups had such abysmal rates, how many IRL start-ups simply OKTHXBAI from their creditors?

Well, that's the deal.

Havelock is de facto a mere broker, whereas it may appear to be a stock market with some guarantees - an image reinforced by their statement that only certified/qualified companies are listed.

In reality it's a broker, and the underlying market is a no-rules, no-guarantees bucket shop fest.

People should re-adjust their perceptions accordingly.

What do you mean "not tanked"? There are several listings that are alive and well (Crypto financial, Casino Bitcoin etc) and since when can an exchange protect itself from outright criminal activity? (Enron ring a bell?). You should probably also read up a little on success rates on seed financing investments. There is a reason you shouldn't invest more than you can lose in start ups.

Agree 100%. Its the "Hashfast scam" all over again. People wildly invest $100,000s into DEVELOPING a product and then have a heart attack when its late and under spec. Hashfast wasn't a scam, they were a company that failed to product a product on time and was bankrupted by refunds (and diff increase) it happens and it will keep happening. Adjust your expectations and manage your risk people!!

CryptoFinancial (ticker:CFI)

Price @IPO:        .15  
Price now:          .04
Dividends paid:  ZERO.

Casino Bitcoin (ticker:CBTC)

price @IPO  .00012 to .00018
price now:  .00005025



Now I'm not talking about an occasional scam on a field of virgin win, I'm talking about wall-to-wall scam, as in NeoBee and Basic Mining level shit.
And the thing is, I'm just saddened by the childlike artlessness of it all (The Panama Fund, Imagine? Cheesy), not the fact that he took your lunch money.
