So, new topic of discussion...

What do we think dividends are going to be?  There is limited transparency on hardware sales now... so that is an issue.  We should get >0.01 from mining unless something drastic changes.  I believe a good number of coins were taken in from USB miner sales... not sure how many but I know the cap was 10,000 units @ 1.99.  Also... I wonder if any people decided to try and buy in on some bulk blades since friedcat decided on a price, I know a few people before in auctions were trying to get 20+ blades, but ended up getting outbid.

Thoughts?  Is there any hard numbers on these sales of blades and USB drives to be found elsewhere on the forums?

I think this week might be the highest dividends we see for a while. Pent up demand for hardware will be at its highest over the next few weeks.

I notice that the blade sales page has over 10,000 page views, though how many sales that translates to I have no idea. I think someone with access to friedcat should tell him to tidy up the top post; it's misleading having multiple email addresses listed and mentioning PMs when there should only be one email address listed. I think that has confused some potential customers. A couple of people have said they emailed him days ago and haven't heard anything; perhaps they are trying the wrong methods of contact.

I had this weird thought today that if the btc:usd rate tumbled, hardware sales would actually go *up* as GPU miners see an opportunity to get an ASIC at a bargain price. The thought of all those Bitcoins rolling in made me swoon...

I don't like signature campaigns.

No point in guessing, we'll have to just wait and see. Don't be surprised if Friedcat says he sold ALL the hardware but is keeping half the BTC earned to fund the next orders and plans.

Surely this would be counteracted by people panic selling asicminer shares so they could cash out of bitcoin?
If not then I guess it's undevalued even at BTC5 per share lol

Was my post useful to you?  Tips graciously received!

IMHO, people that own ASICMINER shares are not going to "cash out" of bitcoin any time soon.  A price drop is just a better opportunity to get "cheap" coins.  Unless you are just referring to the fact that they will sell during the "tumble" and buy back later. Then I agree that some will cash out.

Yes, and that will be the day that I will make a mad rush to the bank with my fiat to buy, buy, buy BTC which I will convert to AM with glee.

To my knowledge, (from the US USB group purchase) the funds for the USB Blades were sent but Friedcat said that they would sit in an account until shipment, and to my knowledge, no shipping has begun on the USB miners.  (That group buy was also confirmed as the first order in for USB miners), so unless something gets shipped in the next day or two, it is doubtful that USB miner sales will be included in this dividend payment. Sad

The hash rate from pool mining is still ~17.6 Thash. Be interesting to see how many blocks the solo mine gets over the next few days, so we can estimate its hash rate.

Bravo, indeed.

Imagine Mozart comes to your house and sits down to play your piano. At the end of the first piece, do you

c) tell him how to play

Now I need to figure out how to determine the hashrate from blocks with ASICMiner's coinbase. Hmm...

Asicminer's hashrate on BTC Guild (67117) has gone down about 5 TH/s within a few hours, from about 13TH/s to 8,813.86 GH/s.

https://www.btcguild.com/index.php?page=rankings

COULD be roughly 5TH/s that are solo mining now.

Imagine Mozart comes to your house and sits down to play your piano. At the end of the first piece, do you

a) ask him lots of questions about what he's going to play next
b) tell him to be careful with your piano because it's really valuable
c) tell him how to play

Dear friedcat,

I do appreciate all your work but please answer the following:

Where are we hashing and at what rate atm? If solo, please explain what is going on.

How are the future deployment plans progressing? You promised a lot per week. What is going on, please?

How many Blades were sold? How many USB thingies were sold?

Why are your "updates" not answering questions everybody would like to be answered (no rocket science)?

I myself have a considerable amount invested in ASICMINER. If this attitude of ASICMINER continues, I will sell it all off.

If you simply read through this thread, you will find ALL of those answers, or reasons why they are not answered. How many fortune 500 companies give weekly updates rather than quarterly anyway? I'll wait while you put a list together. Go ahead and sell off your "considerable amount", I'll be ready to snatch it up when you make that mistake.
