Daily Bitcoin Cash Mining Review (Avalon 741, Ebit E9)

January 23, 2018
Just wanted to do an update to my bitcoin cash mining revenues.
24 Hour Hashrate = 17.12 TH/s BCH Earned = .0147 BCH USD Earned If Exchanged Today: $23.50
This is another rough day in the world of bitcoin mining. I am still at a net profit, but to see mining revenues this low is hard. I am going to keep HODLing my coins and waiting for this bear market to turn around. I saw some awesome things about the South Korean markets last night and I am hoping to see the prices of the coins higher by the end of this week.
Link to my youtube video covering today: https://youtu.be/MPQJHTWyk1A
My team and I are currently working on a GPU mining rig. Look for a video with that coming soon! I am also putting together a review of both of my miners the Avalon 741, and Ebit E9
If you have any feedback on my videos, please send me an email [email protected]

White Paper, Miner, Pizza … | "Old Objects" in the Cryptocurrency Museum

White Paper, Miner, Pizza … |
https://preview.redd.it/giu1ssilga151.jpg?width=900&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=41510785ccdc0d99544ec74229f62427d1c0ce3e
Museum has played the role of a time recorder. Talking about bitcoin, more than ten years has passed since the creation of it. Although it is uncomparable to the stock market with a hundred years of history, during the ten years, in the different stages of the development of bitcoin and blockchain have continuously poured in geeks, miners, speculators, newbies, leaving keywords such as sudden rich, myth, scam, belief, revolution, etc.
There are also many “old objects” with stories in the “Museum” of the cryptocurrency realm. On Museum Day, let ’s review the stories brought by these “old objects”.
The First Digital Currency White Paper — Bitcoin White Paper
On Oct. 31, 2008, Satoshi Nakamoto released the Bitcoin white paper — A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System in the cryptographic mail group where he belongs, and Bitcoin was born since then.
A white paper is a document that explains the purpose and technology used in cryptocurrency. Usually a cryptocurrency uses the white paper to help people understand what it provides, and it is also an important information channel for investors to understand a project. Therefore, the level of the white paper affects people’s confidence towards the coin.
In a word, in the cryptocurrency and blockchain industry, the value of a white paper is equivalent to that of a standard financing speech. The white paper plays a vital role in this emerging market.
The First Public Bitcoin-Physical Transaction — Pizza
Since Satoshi Nakamoto mined the Bitcoin genesis block on January 3, 2009, Bitcoin has only been spread among the small crowd and has not realized its value.
Not until May 22, 2010, Bitcoin enthusiast “Laszlo Hanyecz” bought a pizza coupon worth $25 with 10,000 bitcoins. This is the first public bitcoin-physical transaction. Bitcoin has its price with 0.3 cents per bitcoin.


This day has also become the famous “Bitcoin Pizza Day” in Bitcoin history. Bitcoin as the imagination of the financial system has more practical significance. The tenth anniversary is coming. How will you commemorate it? Will you buy a pizza?
The First Digital Asset Exchange — Bitcoinmarket.com
After the birth of Bitcoin, in addition to mining, the only way to get Bitcoin in the early days was to conduct transactions on forums or IRC (commonly known as Internet Relay Chat). However, this method involves both long transaction time and great security risk.
In March 2010, the first digital asset exchange — Bitcoinmarket.com launched. However, due to lack of liquidity and transaction depth, it disappeared soon after its establishment, but Bitcoinmarket.com opened the era of the operation of the cryptocurrency realm exchange 1.0.


On June 9, 2011, China’s first Bitcoin exchange — Bitcoin China (BTCChina) launched. Its founder, Yang Linke, translated Bitcoin into Chinese “比特币” for the first time. In 2013, China’s bitcoin trading entered the golden age, and exchanges sprung up. China monopolized more than 90% of the world’s bitcoin transactions. Now, if the top three exchanges Binance, Huobi Global, OKEx are the Exchange 2.0, then the index exchange represented by 58COIN called the 3.0 version, leading the trend.
The First Generation of High-Performance Miner — ASIC Miner
When Satoshi Nakamoto created Bitcoin, the only way to get it is to use computers (including home computers) to mine, mainly relying on the CPU to calculate. However, as the value of digital currencies such as Bitcoin has become higher and higher, mining has become an industry with the competition is getting fiercer, accompanied by increasing difficulty of mining. Therefore, hardware performance competition starts.
In July 2012, the genius Jiang Xinyu (Internet nickname is “Friedcat”) from the junior class of the University of Science and Technology declared at the forum that he could make ASIC miners (chips). As far as mining computing power is concerned, ASICs can be tens of thousands or more higher than the same-generation CPUs and GPUs.
At the beginning of 2013, Zhang Nanqian (Pumpkin Zhang), a suspended doctoral student from the Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics, developed the ASIC miner and named it “Avalon”.


In June 2013, the Friedcat’s miner USB was finally released, and it maintained 20% of the computing power of the entire network.
At the end of 2013, Wu Jihan, used the tens of millions yuan earned from Friedcat through investment, worked together with Jenke group, to develop the Antminer S1. Since then, the miner manufacturer Bitmain began to enter the stage of history.
It is no exaggeration to say that Friedcat and Zhang Nangeng have opened the domestic “mining” era.
The Birthplace of China’s Bitcoin — Garage Coffee
It is not only the “old objects” that record history, but also a place that everyone in the cryptocurrency realm aspires to.
Guo Hongcai once said, “Without no The Garage Café, there will be no cryptocurrency realm today. Since it is a very mysterious place that all waves of people from the café joint together to create today’s digital asset industry.

▲ In March 2013, American student Jake Smith successfully purchased a cup of coffee at The Garage Café with 0.131 bitcoins. This move attracted the attention of CCTV, and it conducted an interview.
Indeed, The Garage Café is the world ’s first entrepreneurial-themed coffee shop. It has been legendary since its establishment in 2011. The Garage Cafét is not only the core coordinate on China’s Bitcoin map, but also the birthplace of the Chinese cryptocurrency circle, where digital asset realm tycoons including Guo Hongcai, Zhao Dong, Li Xiaolai, Li Lin have made their ways.
The development of digital currency is only 11 years old. Through these “old objects”, we review the various stories of this wave of technology together, hoping to help you understand the development process of the digital currency field. Meanwhile, I also remind all practitioners to use history as a mirror and forge ahead.

Bitcoin Mining Profitability: How Long Does it Take to Mine One Bitcoin in 2019?

When it comes to Bitcoin (BTC) mining, the major questions on people’s minds are “how profitable is Bitcoin mining” and “how long would it take to mine one Bitcoin?” To answer these questions, we need to take an in-depth look at the current state of the Bitcoin mining industry — and how it has changed — over the last several years.
Bitcoin mining is, essentially, the process of participating in Bitcoin’s underlying security mechanism — known as proof-of-work — to help secure the Bitcoin blockchain. In return, participants receive compensation in bitcoins (BTC).
When you participate in Bitcoin mining, you are essentially searching for blocks by crunching complex cryptographic challenges using your mining hardware. Once a block is discovered, new transactions are recorded and verified within the block and the block discoverer receives the block rewards — currently set at 12.5 BTC — as well as the transactions fees for the transactions included within the block.
Once the maximum supply of 21 million Bitcoins has been mined, no further Bitcoins will ever come into existence. This property makes Bitcoin deflationary, something which many argue will inevitably increase the value of each Bitcoin unit as it becomes more scarce due to increased global adoption.
The limited supply of Bitcoin is also one of the reasons why Bitcoin mining has become so popular. In previous years, Bitcoin mining proved to be a lucrative investment option — netting miners with several fold returns on their investment with relatively little effort.
bitcoin mining hardware
Mining Hardware
The mining hardware you choose will mostly depend on your circumstances — in terms of budget, location and electricity costs. Since the amount of hashing power you can dedicate to the mining process is directly correlated with how much Bitcoin you will mine per day, it is wise to ensure your hardware is still competitive in 2019.
Bitcoin uses SHA256 as its mining algorithm. Because of this, only hardware compatible with this algorithm can be used to mine Bitcoin. Although it is technically possible to mine Bitcoin on your current computer hardware — using your CPU or GPU — this will almost certainly not generate a positive return on your investment and you may end up damaging your device.
The most cost-effective way to mine Bitcoin in 2019 is using application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) mining hardware. These are specially-designed machines that offer much higher performance per watt than typical computers and have been an absolutely essential purchase for anybody looking to get into Bitcoin mining since the first Avalon ASICs were shipped in 2013.
When it comes to selecting Bitcoin mining hardware, there are several main parameters to consider — though the importance of each of these may vary based on personal circumstances and budget.
Performance per Watt
When it comes to Bitcoin mining, performance per watt is a measure of how many gigahashes per watt a machine is capable of and is, hence, a simple measure of its efficiency. Since electricity costs are likely to be one of the largest expenses when mining Bitcoin, it is usually a good idea to ensure that you are getting good performance per watt out of your hardware.
Ideally, your mining hardware would be highly efficient, allowing it to mine Bitcoin with lower energy requirements — though this will need to be balanced with acquisition costs, as often the most efficient hardware is also the most expensive. This means it may take longer to see a return on investment.
In countries with cheap electricity, performance per watt is often less of a concern than acquisition costs and price-performance ratio. In most countries, operating outdated mining hardware is typically cost prohibitive, as energy costs outweigh the income generated by the mining equipment.
However, this may not be the case for those operating in countries with extremely cheap electricity — such as Kuwait and Venezuela — as even older equipment can still be profitable. Similarly, miners with a free energy surplus, such as from wind or solar electric generators, can benefit from the minimal gains offered by still running outdated hardware.
Longevity
The lifetime of mining hardware also plays a critical role in determining how profitable your mining venture will be. It’s always a good idea to do whatever possible to ensure it runs as smoothly as possible.
Since mining equipment tends to run at a full (or almost full) load for extended periods, they also tend to break down and fail more frequently than most electronics — which can seriously damage your profitability. Equipment failure is even more common when purchasing second-hand equipment. Since warranty claims are often challenging, it can often take a long time to receive a warranty replacement.
Price-Performance Ratio
In many cases, one of the major criteria used to select mining hardware is the price-performance ratio — a measure of how much performance a machine outputs per unit price. In the case of cryptocurrency mining hardware, this is commonly expressed as gigahashes per dollar or GH/$.
Under ideal circumstances, the mining hardware would have a high price-performance ratio, ensuring you get a lot of bang for your buck. However, this must also be considered in combination with the acquisition costs and the expected lifetime of the machine — since the absolute most powerful machines are not always the cheapest or the most energy efficient.
Acquisition Costs
Acquisition costs are almost always the biggest barrier to entry for most Bitcoin miners since most top-end mining hardware costs several thousand dollars. This problem is further compounded by the fact that many hardware manufacturers offer discounts for bulk purchases, allowing those with deeper pockets to achieve a better price-performance ratio.
Acquisition costs include all the costs involved in purchasing any mining equipment, including hardware costs, shipping costs, import duties, and any further costs. For example, many ASIC miners do not include a power supply — which can be another considerable expense, since the 1,000W+ power supplies usually required tend to cost several hundred dollars alone.
Ensuring your equipment runs smoothly can also add in additional costs, such as cooling and maintenance expenses. In addition, some miners may want to invest in uninterruptible power supplies to ensure their hardware keeps running — even if the power fails temporarily.
asic mining
Current Generation Hardware
One of the most recent additions to the Bitcoin mining hardware market is the Ebang Ebit E11++, which was released in October 2018. Using a 10nm fabrication process for its processors, the Ebit E11++ is able to achieve one of the highest hash rates on the market at 44TH/s.
In terms of efficiency, the Ebang Ebit E11++ is arguably the best on the market, offering 44TH/s of hash rate while drawing just 1,980W of power, offering 22.2GH/W performance. However, as of writing, the Ebang Ebit E11++ is out of stock until March 31, 2019 — while its price of $2,024 (excluding shipping) may make it prohibitively expensive for those first getting involved with Bitcoin mining.
Another popular choice is the ASICminer 8 Nano, a machine released in October 2018 that offers 44TH/s for $3,900 excluding shipping. The ASICminer 8 Nano draws 2,100W of power, giving it an efficiency of almost 21GH/W — slightly lower than the Ebit E11++ while costing almost double the price. However, unlike the E11++, the 8 Nano is actually in stock and available to purchase.
ASICminer also offers the 8 Nano Pro, a machine launched in mid-2018 that offers 80 TH/s of hash rate for $9,500 (excluding shipping). However, unlike the Ebit E11++ and 8 Nano, the minimum order quantity for the 8 Nano Pro is curiously set at five, meaning you will need to lay out a minimum of $47,500 in order to actually get your hands on one (or five).
While the 8 Nano Pro doesn’t offer the same performance per watt as the Ebit E11+ or AICMiner 8 Nano, it is one of the quieter miners on this list, making it more suitable for a home or office environment. That being said, the ASICminer 8 Nano Pro is easily the most expensive miner per TH on this list — costing a whopping $118.75/TH, compared to the $46/TH offered by the E11++ and $88.64 offered by the 8 Nano.
The latest hardware on this list is the Innosilicon T3 43T, which is currently available for pre-order at $2,279, and estimated to ship in March 2019. Offering 43TH/s of performance at 2,100W, the T3 43T comes in at an efficiency of 20.4GH/W, which is around 10 percent less energy efficient than the Ebit E11++.
The T3 43T also has a minimum order quantity of three units, making the minimum acquisition cost $6837 + shipping for preorders. All in all, the T3 43T is more costly and less efficient than the E11++ but may arrive slightly earlier since Ebang will not ship the E11++ units until at least end March 29, 2019.
Finally, this list would not be complete without including Bitmain’s latest offering, the Antminer S15-28TH/s, which — as its name suggests — offers 28TH/s of hash power while drawing just under 1600W at the wall. The Antminer S15 is one of the only SHA256 miners to use 7nm processors, making it somewhat smaller than some of the other devices on this list.
Like most pieces of top-end Bitcoin mining hardware, the Antminer S15 27TH/s model is currently sold out, with current orders not shipping until mid-February 2019. However, the S15 is offered at a significantly lower price than many of its competitors at just $1020 (excluding shipping), with no minimum quantity restriction. At these rates, the Antminer comes in at just $37.78/TH — though its energy efficiency is a much less impressive 17.5GH/W.

How To Select a Good Mining Pool
Mining pools are platforms that allow miners to pool their resources together to achieve a higher collective hash rate — which, in turn, allows the collective to mine more blocks than they would be able to achieve alone.
Typically, these mining pools will distribute block rewards to contributing miners based on the proportion of the hash rate they supply. If a pool contributing a total of 20 TH/s of hash rate successfully mines the next block, a user responsible for 10 percent of this hash rate will receive 10 percent of the 12.5 BTC reward.
Pools essentially allow smaller miners to compete with large private mining organizations by ensuring that the collective hash rate is high enough to successfully mine blocks on regular basis. Without operating through a mining pool, many miners would be unlikely to discover any blocks at all — due to only contributing a tiny fraction of the overall Bitcoin hash rate.
While it is quite possible to be successful mining without a pool, this typically requires an extremely large mining operation and is usually not recommended — unless you have enough hash rate to mine blocks on a regular basis.
Although it is technically possible to discover blocks mining solo and keep the entire 12.5 BTC reward for yourself, the odds of this actually occurring are practically zero — making pool collaboration practically the only way to compete in 2019 and beyond.
Selecting the best pool for you can be a challenging job since the vast majority of pools are quite similar and offer similar features and comparable fees. Because of this, we have broken down the qualities you should be looking for in a new pool into four categories; reputation, hash rate, pool fees, and usability/features:
Reputation
The reputation of a pool is one of the most important factors in selecting the pool that is best for you. Well-reputed pools will tend to be much larger than newer or less well-established pools since few pools with a poor reputation can stand the test of time.
Well-reputed pools also tend to be more transparent about their operation, many of which provide tools to ensure that each user is getting the correct reward based on the hash rate contributed. By using only pools with a great reputation, you also ensure your hash rate is not being used for nefarious purposes — such as powering a 51 percent attack.
When comparing a list of pools that appear suitable for you, it is a wise move to read their user reviews before making your choice — ensuring you don’t end up mining at a pool that steals your hard-fought earnings.
Hash Rate
When it comes to mining Bitcoin, the probability of discovering the next block is directly related to the amount of hashing power you contribute to the network. Because of this, one of the major features you should be considering when selecting your pool is its total hash rate — which is often closely related to the proportion of new blocks mined by the pool
Since the total hash rate of a pool is directly related to how quickly it discovers new blocks, this means the largest pools tend to discover a relative majority of blocks — leading to more regular rewards. However, the very largest pools also tend the have higher fees but often make up for this with sheer success and additional features.
Sometimes, some of the largest pools have a minimum hash rate requirement ù leaving some of the smaller miners left out of the loop. Although smaller pools typically have more relaxed requirements with reduced performance thresholds, these pools may be only slightly more profitable than mining solo.
Pool Fees
When choosing a suitable pool, typically one of the major considerations is its fees. Typically, most pools will charge a small fee that is deducted from your earnings and is usually around 1-2 percent — but sometimes slightly lower or higher.
There are also pools that offer 0 percent fees. However, these are often much smaller than the major pools and tend to make their money in a different way — such as through monthly subscriptions or donations.
Ideally, you will choose the pool that offers the best balance of fees to other features. Usually, the pool with the absolute lowest fees is not the best choice. Additionally, pools with the lowest fees often have the highest withdrawal minimums — making pool hopping uneconomical for most.
Usability and Features
When first starting out with Bitcoin mining, learning how to set up a pool and navigating through the settings can be a challenge. Because of this, several pools target their services to newer users by offering a simple to navigate user interface and providing detailed learning resources and prompt customer support.
However, for more experienced miners, simple pools don’t tend to offer a variety of features needed to maximize profitability. For example, although many mining pools focus their entire hash rate towards mining a single cryptocurrency, some are large enough to offer additional options — allowing users to mine other SHA256 coins such as Bitcoin Cash (BCH) or Fantom if they choose.
These pools are technically more challenging to use and mostly designed for those familiar with mining, happy to hop from coin to coin mining whichever is most profitable at the time. There are even some exchanges that automatically direct their combined hash rate at the most profitable cryptocurrency — taking the guesswork out of the equation.

Best Mining Pools for 2019
The Bitcoin mining pool industry has a large number of players, but the vast majority of the Bitcoin hash rate is concentrated within just a few pools. Currently, there are dozens of suitable pools to choose from — but we have selected just a few of the best to help get you started on your journey.
Slushpool was the first Bitcoin mining pool released, being launched way back in 2010 under the name “Bitcoin Pooled Mining Server.” Since then, Slushpool has grown into one of the most popular pools around — currently accounting for just under 10 percent of the total Bitcoin hash rate.
Although Slushpool isn’t one of the very largest pools, it does offer a newbie-friendly interface alongside more advanced features for those that need them. The pool has moderately high fees of 2 percent but offers servers in several countries — including the U.S., Europe, China, and Japan — giving it a good balance of fees to features.
BTC.com is another potential candidate for your pool and currently stands as the largest public Bitcoin mining pool. It is responsible for mining around 17 percent of new blocks. Being the largest public mining pool provides users with a sense of security, ensuring blocks are mined regularly and a stable income is made.

BTC.com is owned by Bitmain, a company that manufacturers mining hardware, and charges a 1.5 percent fees — placing it squarely in the middle-tier in terms of fees. Unlike other platforms, BTC.com uses its own payment structure known as FPPS (Full Pay Per Share), which means miners also receive a share of the transaction fees included within mined blocks — making it slightly more profitable than standard payment per share (PPS) pools.
Another great option is Antpool, a mining pool that supports mining services for 10 different cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin, Litecoin (LTC) and Ethereum (ETH). AntPool frequently trades places with BTC.com as the largest Bitcoin mining pool. However, as of this writing, it occupies the title of the third-largest public mining pool.
What sets Antpool apart from other pools is the ability to choose your own fee system — including PPS, PPS+, and PPLNS. If you choose PPLNS, using Antpool is free but you will not receive any transaction fees from any blocks mined. Antpool also offers regular payouts and has a low minimum payout of just 0.001 BTC, making it suitable for smaller miners.
Last on the list of the best Bitcoin mining pools in 2019 is the Bitcoin.com mining pool. Although this is one of the smaller pools available, the Bitcoin.com pool has some redeeming features that make it worth a look. It offers mining contracts, allowing you to test out Bitcoin mining before investing in mining equipment of your own. According to Bitcoin.com, they are the highest paying Pay Per Share (PPS) pool in the world, offering up to 98 percent block rewards as well as automatic switching between BTC and BCH mining to optimize profitability.

Electricity Costs
While your mining hardware is most important when it comes to how much BTC you can earn when mining, your electricity costs are usually the largest additional expense. With electricity costs often varying dramatically between countries, ensuring you are on the best cost-per-KWh plan available will help to keep costs down when mining.
Most commonly, large mining operations will be set up in countries where electricity costs are the lowest — such as Iceland, India, and Ukraine. Since China has one of the lowest energy costs in the world, it was previously the epicenter of Bitcoin mining. However, since the government began cracking down on cryptocurrencies, it has largely fallen out of favor with miners.
Technically, Venezuela is one of the cheapest countries in the world in terms of electricity, with the government heavily subsidizing these energy costs — while Bitcoin offers an escape from the hyperinflation suffered by the Venezuelan bolivar. Despite this, importing mining hardware into the country is a costly endeavor, making it impractical for many people.
Finding ways to lower your electricity costs is one of the best ways to improve your mining profitability. This can include investing in renewable energy sources such as solar, geothermal, or wind — which can yield increased profitability over the long term.

What resources do you use to stay on top of upcoming new miners and when to buy?

TLDR: I've been researching how to get into mining for the past 5-6 months, but I feel like I'm always hearing about what I should have bought a month ago, but never what's coming up that I should buy. Any resources or advice would be greatly appreciated.
Here's the research and what I've been doing for reference:
I got signed up on the mailing list for Bitmain and get their updates now, but still feel like I'm missing so much. Like, they didn't even mention the Antminer A3 had dropped in their emails.
I found this list - https://www.asicminervalue.com/opportunities
But I don't know how reliable it is. Also, I've seen people here saying their next big purchase will be the Avalon 821, but the above chart has it rated pretty low on profitability. It rates the Antminer A3 815Gh (at $1888) with a 79 day ROI, so I put both of them into some of the calculators I've found, but even that isn't making any sense. Like on the exact same miner I'll get results that say it'll either be totally unprofitable on one or that it will make a few grand in profit on another calculator. I honestly have no idea what to believe.
Here's some of the calculators I've been using: http://www.mycryptobuddy.com/BitcoinMiningCalculator https://bitcoinwisdom.com/litecoin/calculator https://www.cryptocompare.com/mining/calculatoltc?HashingPower=280&HashingUnit=MH%2FsPowerConsumption=1800&CostPerkWh=0.01
Supposedly this site has 74 Antminer A3 815GH Miners in stock. If I can even trust this site (found a few reviews that were positive). Curious if anyone thinks this is a good buy, or if I should wait for something new to hit? And if I should wait, how do I figure out when that's happening so that I can actually buy them when they're released?

Daily Bitcoin Cash Mining Update - January 24 - Avalon 741, Ebit E9

Link to the youtube video: https://youtu.be/8KG39tnpZpM
I wanted to let everyone know that I changed my channel name and usernames to prospector_21st because when i initially started this youtube channel I didn’t want to use my real name. I have now decided that I will use my real name. I am Ashton, the 21st century prospector and this is another daily mining profit update. I actually didn’t get my coins sent to my ledger last night like I usually do. This is because as I was browsing reddit; I noticed that someone had posted an issue with the ledger API, and I wanted to be on the safe side. I checked this morning and nothing seems to have been posted elsewhere so I went ahead and sent them to it. Yesterday, my two miners made slightly less bitcoin cash. This is lower than the day before, and I attribute this mostly to the higher prices of bitcoin and bitcoin cash yesterday. I think the auto switching pool went on to bitcoin two days ago and it is still there as of right now; so I am hoping to see an increase in the number of coins that I mine today and as the pool stays on bitcoin.
Here are the final numbers for today.
24 Hour HashRate = 17.18 TH/s
BCH Mined = .0136
USD Mined if Coins Sold Today = $22.09
As you can see my hash rate has gone up a little bit, but for the most part has stayed the same. I can see that my Ebit E9 is around 8.9 in the 3 hour average. Which is a little low, but this isn’t a precise process; and it is made up by the Avalon 741 at around 8.2 TH/s for the 3 hour average.
Before I go today, I just wanted to tell you guys about a couple cool upcoming projects that I am working on. I will be doing reviews of 3 ASIC SHA256 bitcoin miners. Those are the Avalon 741, Ebit E9, and Whatsminer M3. Also, I am putting together an entire crypto mining series; starting with how transactions happen and are entered on the blockchain, and then through everything including mining pools and payout methods; so look for that as well. Happy prospecting!
My new Reddit Username will be @prospector_21st look there for continued updates as I will be discontinuing this account.

Avalon ASIC batch 3 is NOT sold out yet!

According to Avalon's webstore, batch 3 units are still in stock. Must be due to the steep price.

Avalon Life

Dear Cryptomaniacs, Have you ever heard of Avalon Life..well, now you will. Apparently before even getting started there is a admin fee to pay of 960 Euros. After that rip off, you need to pay an additional 3000 Euros to get started on the “mining”. However, come to think of it, the mining facilities are all based in Costa Rica. Why Costa Rica? And I don’t see any proof of these mining facilities. Even with the given address on the website, there seems to be no evidence of such facilities. Also, they fund their mining power using solar energy..does that add up in anyway? Would be interested in some advice from the crypto-community. I recently checked out their facebook page, which also seemed to show a range of reviews. However, by the 1 star ratings the people who run the facebook page not only respond to questions, but also act disrespectfully towards reviews. Reviews are meant to be a way to take advice and improve flaws, not ensure that another customer is lost. Moving on, the reviews did not just mention a line or two of bad reviews, instead they mentioned them to be scam/ ponzi scheme. Given this approach towards customers, would you invest into such a company? Furthermore, a german newspaper agency called “German Consumer Magazine/Stiftung Warentest” ( www.test.de ) has warned to stay away from Avalon life. They believe it to be just as much of a scam as One coin is and have allocated it on the same list. Also, Avalon Life claims this investment contains no risk, which if you ask me is not possible. The whole cryptocurrency market grows as a result of people going out on a limb and taking on risk...just another attempt to attract inexperienced people within the field to join a so called scam. Another thing which doesn’t make sense is why are the founders based in Switzerland, yet they say they have mining facilities in Costa Rica. Having a headquarter in Switzerland for such a system leads to even more questions of the safety and security of funds. The possibility is there that the funds from their clients have been laundered via the use of bitcoins. Avalon Life has different membership rankings. And they operate through a recruitment system: Level 1: For each additional member recruited, one is awarded 2 Euro Level 2: For each additional member recruited, one is awarded 4 Euro Level 3: For each additional member recruited, one is awarded 6 Euro Level 4: For each additional member recruited, one is awarded 8 Euros Level 5: For each additional member recruited, one is awarded 12 Euros Given these concepts of recruiting, realistically, this can be categorized as a multi level marketing system. If you ever hear of a option to join a MLM, stay away!! These concepts are only created for the core team to benefit a great amount of wealth, and for early members to reap some of the benefits. But if a member joins one or two years after everything is set and running, there is close to no benefit and a VERY HIGH RISK LEVEL involved. Please keep in mind, they call their system “Risk Free””. My personal opinion, stay away!
My skepticism of the company has been immensely growing, since they have also stopped mining bitcoin and dash. So how exactly are they financing all their customers? Could it be that they use the money first paid by a customer, to pay off an existing one? What I would like to ask from the crypto community is for as much support on this topic as possible. If anyone has any useful info to prove that the services they offer can be related to a ponzi, then please share. I don’t want anyone who wishes to be involved in the industry to be misled by “Risk Free”opportunities, or doubling your income within 6 months. It is about taking initiative and being your own bank, do not trust so called companies that “mine” for you. Would love your support on the topic!

New Updates From ASX Project

Below is a copy of the newsletter I was just sent by ASX Project (http://asxproject.com/). That shifty ASIC mining company that popped up last week. Shifty for a lot of reasons, mainly the fact that many of its posts are predated and they haven't provided any actual evidence of their product.
Having said that, there are a couple of reasons why I think they may be for real and just have really poor execution of their web presence. I'll expand my thoughts in the comments if need be, but here's the complete text for you to read first:
First of all, we think that time is of the essence. Since BFL has announced to ship in the coming period, our time-to-market is very important. The faster we can start production, the sooner we will deliver, and establish a solid client base in the bitcoin community. This will ensure incoming orders that help us produce, assemble and ship systems at maximum capacity, which is 10-50 per day depending on the amount of modules inserted.
Today, we had an appointment with our supplier, and we discussed the possibility to reduce the first batch-size. We concluded that it is financially possible to start production when 100 modules have been pre-ordered. Of course, this financial analysis includes the purchase of additional parts, assembly, testing and shipment of our products. We have currently sold a total of 53 modules.
Some of our clients have been refunded due to their concerns regarding the legitimacy of our project. We assure you that we fully intent to deliver our systems and that our business model has been developed comprehensively. It is of course a major drawback that we have not shown any prototype and that it would help create more trust in the community if we would have. Unfortunately, we have not collected any footage of the previous testing. Today, the supplier's testing facility was unfortunately occupied. Thus, any footage is still to be released. We do not yet have our own testing area, though all the planning thereof is completed. Many of our customers state: "The best way to get the the project off the ground is delivering a working product into the community". The contributions and professional attitude of our clients are very much appreciated and acknowledged. We thank you for your help in thinking along with us.
Due to the above, the trade-off between time to 'mass'-production and delivering our first product (or prototype) seems an important aspect in determining the future of the project. Although many people have urged us to deliver a prototype to them for review, we are confident that reducing the batch-size will enable us to quickly attain the required funds to start production as soon as possible. This way we could be able to deliver as soon as the end of May.
We think that delaying our schedule by allocating the time needed to review a prototype system will diminish the major competitive advantages of our business. Our competitive advantages over Avalon and BFL are in our opinion the short time-to-market, (potentially) high volume production, low pricing, and high flexibility (in the case of a technology breakthrough). Therefore, we think that it is in both our interest as well as the community's to conduct the strategy of reducing the batch-size.
We hope that you will help launch this project to reach its potential in becoming one of the major players in bitcoin mining hardware solutions.
Regards,
ASX Project
