Do you think they're interested in trolling AM, or all the forum in general? Have you seen a troll with similar behavior (like you describe pankkake) in other sub-forums?
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=134859
Usage of /\
Ending all his posts by "NYC;)".

WTF.

I guess their post are just an excuse for signature-spamming.
That said, I would be a bit amazed if they were real bots.

Total network rate is hitting 200 TH/s for the first time. Time for a friedcat announcement to bolster sentiment  Grin

I think friedcat has only made one real update in this  thread since I started to invest. Seems like years ago but actually only June 24th. Did he used to post more often than this?

if AM keeps dumping those BTC at that rate, we will see $50 and then probably $25 sooner or later.

How much it cost to mine 1 BTC if you are the chip/equipment manufacturer like AM is?


Do you have evidence that AM (The 60% privately owned company) is dumping a significant amount of BTC on the open market or is this just FUD?


Thanks.

No FUD, just a question. They still need fiat to pay for manufacturing, research, rent, S&H, traveling etc. Good news is, they do not pay for an accountant who is competent enough to compile a balance sheet, PL and CF statement Wink

So, how much it cost to mine 1 BTC if you are the ASIC chip/equipment manufacturer like AM is?

btw, people "dumping" in the last few weeks are in general not "people that need the money", they are scared "investors", thinking the price is falling to the floor and their dream of "getting rich quick" is in ruins.

Personally, and being really harsh, these are chumpsters and the bitcoin economy is better off without them.

good morning, I'm starting to see why they asked me to shut this program down. This is an open sourced project that has been hijacked. Read Satoshis' white paper and it will become perfectly clear. Our research will continue no matter what efforts are taken to censor communication...Ira

How do you know who sells BTC?

The main activity in the BTC-economy atm is developing and mass producing of ASICs. Many millions of fiat are necessary for this activity and any price is ok when one really needs the other side of te trade. As a result market prices moves fast. And then other market participants, including the competing producers are going to run to the exit. If this is the case, then it is the miners' dream of "getting rich quick" which crashes (prices).

They will be back at next price rise to blow another bubble.

It used to be more frequent, as time has gone on, they have become far less common.
As Friedcat become a billionaire, he need more time to managing his business empire ...

So, how much it cost to mine 1 BTC if you are the ASIC chip/equipment manufacturer like AM is?

By my calculations, USD 0.507 in electricity costs per btc mined.

The assumptions:
Power efficiency: 8.3 J/GH (ref: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=204030.0)
Electricity cost: USD 0.06 per kWh (was mentioned by someone earlier in this thread, cannot find official confirmation)
Current hashes to win: 91635939047418116 (ref: http://blockexplorer.com/q/hashestowin)
Current Bitcoin reward per block: 25 (http://blockexplorer.com/q/bcperblock)

So it will remain profitable (i.e. value of mined BTC exceeds electricity costs) until network hash rate is more than 100x today's hash rate at current prices.

Please link me to your source.

I really would like to see this information and I am going to assume for now you did not just pull it out of your ass.

Thank you.

Of course, now is the time to sell if you want to get money out now.


It could be argued that the best time to sell is the day of the dividend, right?

(Unless you're factoring a sharp crash of BTCUSD before that and more scared AM "investors" trying to cash out.)

actually a significant amount of the AM sell off was an obvious price manipulation.

You are correct, my wording was a bit off, so let me rephrase that:
.. if people with ASIC miners keep dumping those BTC at that rate, we will see $50 and then probably $25 sooner or later.

You really think they hold on to the coin they mine? Why? It's money for nothing. Fiat in the bank Smiley while BTC has lost close to 30% in a week.

So, how much it cost to mine 1 BTC if you are the ASIC chip/equipment manufacturer like AM is?

By my calculations, USD 0.507 in electricity costs per btc mined.

The assumptions:
Power efficiency: 8.3 J/GH (ref: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=204030.0)
Electricity cost: USD 0.06 per kWh (was mentioned by someone earlier in this thread, cannot find official confirmation)

Let's assume they are intelligent, and they know the bitcoin market better than others. When would they sell? When the price was $150 or when the price was $60?

Money for nothing? Don't be ridiculous. They are mining something of value. They want to maximise their returns, not sell out near the bottom of the market.

Put simply: they are professionals, not panicky amateurs of which there are so many in the bitcoin market.

Who? AM team? They are probably really good programmers and engineers but that is where it ends.

I have no wish to be right that AM is dumping BTC or that those few lucky, who got the ASIC hardware, are doing it.
I actually hope we can do +40% run and end up back at 100 area. When fear and greed are only forces, that set BTC price (there are no fundamental reasons) anything can happen.

Now, lets get back to AM. I hope that friedcat can finally find a accountant competent enough to produce some financial reports, so we can find out, how AM is actually doing.
For fuck sake guys, this is beyond pathetic. A multimillion Co can not find a accountant? In China!? Honestly, this is absurd and those guys better be embarrassed.

PS! Cheers and keep up the good work...

While I would be happy too if they produced financial reports, honestly you repeating every other day is getting quite tiresome.
Also, I don't know why you pretend to believe that they "weren't able" to find an accountant, while it is quite obvious that it's a deliberate choice.
Don't hold your breath, remember Huawei.

Good to know it makes you feel uncomfortable. Only guy who can help you is friedcat and his accountant. You can just pretend or pretend to believe what ever you want but the fact is - none of us have seen any reports from AM.

I understand why none of you really care for proper reporting. First, most of you can not read the reports and for second, living in a world of fantasy is way more fun.
For f**k sake, there is even a special naval gazing, spit balling and circle jerking thread for this: ASICMINER Speculation Thread. LOL Smiley

Friedcat, as a shareholder I am not happy about you hiding the numbers from the shareholders.
Frankly, I do not give a flying fuck what you guys are used to or not over there in China. I like to see the numbers every month... as simple as that.Friedcat, if this is something you can not manage, please let me know.
Cheers!
