    Way to save on money-do your mining during the winter, and save on heating bills by just having your ASIC(s) blowing on you...if you don't mind the noise

  • Shahabaz Khan

    So.. to the people who make and sell these ASICs.. WHY WOULD ANYONE SELL A MACHINE THAT PRINTS MONEY????

  • vh9network

    Why hasn't the original Bitcoin creator made himself known and fork Bitcoin.

  • Marxist With An iPhone

    Surely those ASIC's could be repurposed as 3D render farms?

  • Harley Me

    Why this crypto currency rage? When crypto currency becomes mainstream currencies there will have to be placed a limit, and it will just replace current currencies without changing the market. The reason why crypo money works in South America and Africa is because of it's harsh class and economic divide.

  • JungYeon Han

    Can you BUILD a asic miner???

  • Matt Kelly

    I remember waiting 7 months for my butterfly labs bitcoin asic in like 2012, by the time they had finished premining it and sending it to me it was useless. Such is the way with asic even today.

  • Agent Hunk

    so,in other words have money to spend and afford everything or do not play the game...makes it a rich man's game...not worth it if your unable to compensate for large bill's...

  • dheasley2

    This shit is stupid. They dont even make shit for money. Too many lazy ass people out there these days.

  • jbooks888

    Here in Australia, electricity is 30c+ per kWhr so I guess that totally excludes all chances of making a profit with any kind of setup.

  • Nasse ナッセ Sweden

    I will stick to miming,

  • WildBuck007

    Sounds like a pyramid scheme for stupid investors not even aware of why their magic money is getting tapped out. Disturbing stuff.

  • Tanking Trucker

    I see ads on eBay for video cards where people say never used for mining. Can you or is there a way to find out if it actually was used for mining or is it just a shot in the dark. And if it was used for mining does it make the card not work as good or the lifespan not as long?

  • Simon Vlad

    mining with is very worthy and profitable

  • game loserr

  • Mike C

    The S9i from bitmain now is only 426$ w psu USD with 14.5ths I want to buy 4 then go off grid with them but prices that low suggest there is a more powerful miner in the works

  • gemixnew gmail com

  • Spectra Jason

    I wonder what that guy felt when his knife was rejected

  • Mares Fillies

    That is 2 weeks Linus. ...

  • Mark Giubarelli

    If coin mining is so profitable then why is this company not just using them to mine rather than selling them?

  • Gazza-usa

    Bitcoin mining is a waste of energy, compute power and money. We are at the point where the compute density required to mine is way above the profit level required to maintain the task. It’s a scam to sell you on the idea that you can make money. You won’t. You are buying a shovel to dig for a 1mm speck of gold that is worthless. You’re better off collecting plastic bottles and trading them in for cash !!!

    So the ASIC Hardware has come down in price like crazy. From 2500$+, to 500$. I wonder why? I am assuming is getting harder to ROI because of the massive competition right now.
