Wow this is crazy awesome news. First manufacturer with Bitcoin ASICs are the nobodies meanwhile we gave BFL a boatload of cash and they can't figure it out.
The samples passed all functionality tests. The power consumption is also within the expected range. And as our overclocking tests had shown, they still have a lot of potentials compared to our original spec. This means that the biggest risk of our project is gone and our NRE is a fruitful spend.
The first production batch of chips will be out of the packaging service tomorrow. Our deploying is on its way.
Briefly yes. But the new platform is not owned by us. We have more control to it than other third-party platforms. It's also more secure and easier to audit/monitor than others. We couldn't give an exact timeline but also as said before it will be before our first dividend payment, which is in the very near future since the first mining farm using self-designed ICs in the world is about to be born.
+1 for fast migration to a trading platform.
+1 for faster sending of confirmation email that I own my shares
-1 for migration to a trading platform.
If it is not done in block chain with colored coins, or similar manner, please do not. It just will get busted, and create another mess like GLBSE. If we can trade it by using block chain +1.
Except friedcat was just going to run his own just for asicminer.
Crazy. Sounds like they are selling shares in their company instead of selling devices. Interesting. Maybe it's a sham? Dream come true? /popcorn.
