I've seen this on reddit, https://www.reddit.com/r/btc/comments/83d9y9/im_freaking_the_fuck_out_wtf_is_this/
it is on a domain which was related to ASICMINER earlier (but maybe the website was run by a shareholder?) asicminer.co

Someone knows more about this? I still own 100 direct shares, so would be good to know what's going on -_-

Edit: BTW I think most likely someone grabbed the domain and the linked website is a SCAM so please don't preorder anything lol.

Don't believe and don't invest in this garbage. It's fake.

Interesting. Not sure what I see. If it's a scam then they put some investment into it for sure. Well, if they know what they do it is an easy turnaround then.

If it's not a scam (do the numbers match?) then they might be ex asicminer employees, however the stature of at least the last guy does not look asian, no offence, so not sure what this is.

I won't invest in any mining anymore.

Took the time to check numbers here: https://jblevins.org/btcmpc/ I think it might not be a scam at all. Numbers aren't as good at all. In fact one will lose money even when the miner would run instantly now. If I didn't enter something wrongly.

Just investing in coins or if needed, staking, is way better, easier und faster to achieve.

Please ALWAYS contact me through bitcointalk pm before sending someone coins.

Has anyone successfully written off their losses from ASICMINER investments on their taxes as a theft for a deduction? (USA)  If so, how difficult was this to prove?  The tax year is still amendable.

Why should one take actions against asics? When someone will attack the network with 51% then he will do. When he starts to mine normally why block him? Only because he possibly could harm the network? If so then it would be wiser to attack the network before someone could do something against it. So all this doesnt make sense to me.

Old Story, ASICMINER was a company where the owner disappeared leaving investors down..... nothing to do with asic mining technology in general.....

Interesting article on the state of ASIC mining today:

When we started Obelisk, we had numerous separate sources reach out and warn us that Bitmain plays dirty, and that if we try to manufacture in China, we will be stopped.

Wonder if Bitmain had a hand in the demise of Asicminer. Their designs were very similar. So I wonder how these 2 companies intersected at the time.
