ASICMINER确定LTC ASIC是不可行的，因为的高速内存总线在其他行业更加有用而做LTC ASIC会非常昂贵。
•两星期后我们已经在另一家公司预定了电源芯片。今年10月这些芯片将提供额外的500TH /秒（第一代芯片）的算力 。
OFFICIAL ASICMINER UPDATE
In an effort to take ASICMINER to the next level as a business, the board met today to discuss ways we can provide better service to our customers and better communication to our shareholders. Below you will find some updates of what's been going on behind the scenes.
PR & Communications 1. The board has committed to meeting even more often than we have been, and intentionally gleaning whatever info can be shared from each meeting, and posting it to public. 2. The board will be assisting with writing these posts to make things easier for Friedcat. 3. The board is in discussions to create content and designs for an official website.
BTCT closing Today, we discussed this topic and Friedcat will be reaching out to Burnside to determine the best way to handle all of his PT shareholders. Burnside might just give Friedcat a database to process, and TAT Investments has offered to handle a full migration to the AM1 asset on HavelockInvestments.com if it is feasible and agreeable.
LTC ASIC ASICMINER determined LTC ASIC is not viable since a high-speed memory bus is much more useful in other industries and very expensive to make in this regard.
Hardware Update • Already shipped devices(Gen1, already shipped) were limited by quantity of the power chip supply we pre-ordered before two months. • We made an order of another brand of power chips which are about two weeks late. In October this will provide another 500TH/s (Gen1). • If any deal of ordering Gen1 chips from outside buyers via us is reached, additional orders will be made. • The size of the Gen2 order will be decided as appropriate, according to the network difficulty when it is time to finalize the order size.
Franchising The board is working to polish the franchising program and is currently discussing the idea of hosting auctions to determine the best pay-per-share rates for ASICMINER, and what profitability the franchises require to operate. ASICMINER intends to grow the franshising program at a faster pace in October, so please participate in this process if you are capable of hosting blades and looking to mitigate some of your risks in buying hardware. In order to make accurate bids, franchisees need 3 things: 1) Some of the blades as a sample, so they can plan and see what they are doing. 2) Reliable estimates and timelines for delivery, as this can severely impact the ability to operate efficiently. 3) Clear terms or a formula to know when their PPS value can be adjusted as the difficulty increases.
Custom Cooling Systems We have been finalizing on our HK datacenter with our professional partner on immersion cooling. This product will be of interest both miners, and other industries that require cooling of similar hardware. Our cooling system partner built it as an exhibition house where everything is clean and shiny for investors/buyers to visit and for ASICMINER to make videos as a demonstration.
Sales/Advertising Update ASICMINER is pursuing for additional sales & advertising opportunies. A Google Ads campaign will be considered, as well as Reddit and other websites. Forum ads are getting expensive now, and ROI is unclear for them.
