Hi guys. Could someone help a dude out and let me know what the upcoming ASICMINER plans are to bring more mining hardware online? I've been reading mention of 200 TH or something massive like that . Is this thread where it would be announced? It's not mentioned in the OP and don't want to sift through 300+ pages of thread. Thanks.
About the plans themselves, basically, he will probably adapt and enable more hashrate as soon as the competition starts following just a little bit (thinking Avalon [machines and chips] here, not Bullshit, Fallacies and Lies...)
Anyone else thinking this isn't the optimal approach?
In my opinion, ASICMiner should sell all the devices that are ready to mine, unless they intend to mine with them themselves. Having ready-to-mine hardware sitting idle is money down the drain.
They should produce as many devices as fast as they can, and when they are ready, judge whether the network has grown enough for them to mine with them, or sell them. Rinse, repeat.
I bet we could very well see an average of 0.02 in divs for almost all june, there's still a good amount of hardware to sell, though it's not impossible that the company could retain some funds for future plans, which I speculate could be oriented in a slightly different direction.
For what it's worth, I've been tracking the payouts from solo mining, and they currently amount to 0.0071 BTC/share: http://runeks.dk/bitcoin/
I'm working on getting x-day average hash rates added for various periods (it's not as easy as it may seem, when a period spans one or several difficulty changes!).
