Hi guys, I've been interested in Bitcoin mining for a while and, lately, I've seriously considered purchasing an ASIC Miner from Butterfly Labs. However, they've got another product on their site that allows me to purchase 1GH/s for $10 (up to 100TH/s if I'm a billionaire, which I am... of course) and partake in a shared mining operation. Is this the exact same thing as purchasing my own ASIC Miner and joining a pool? Thanks for the help, in advance. :) EDIT: I'm aware that a pool can have much fewer participants than a full-scale contracted server farm. I guess the question I'm really asking is would it be better if I got my own rig and joined a pool of 20-30 people, or do I sign up for this and run the risk of not getting anything back?
Is Butterfly Labs mining Bitcoins with our pre-orders
I used to mine on Eclipse Mining Consortium a month or so back. At the time the pool which is owned by a director at BFL was running at around 300TH. Now, it has mysteriously gained another 200TH. This is despite my reason for leaving in the first place due to the pool's terrible run of bad luck. There were a couple of posts on the Eclipse forum (that managed to survive the moderator) who said that they were also leaving. Could it be that the bullet run of chips were not so useless after all?

This article is by Rebecca Campbell. Butterfly Labs has agreed to settle the Federal Trade Commission’s charges of making misleading claims about their products to their customers.. In a lawsuit that has dragged on since September 2014, the Kansas-based Bitcoin company presold computer hardware that was optimized for mining Bitcoin, charging as much as $30,000 for the specialized hardware. Butterfly Labs (BFL) is a company that creates Bitcoin mining hardware. One of the earliest bitcoin mining hardware manufacturers offering ASIC devices, Butterfly Labs have come under fire from bitcoin miners who have had to wait patiently due to lengthy production and delivery delays. The company is headquartered is located in Kansas, United States. Butterfly Labs manufactures a line of high speed encryption processors for use in bitcoin mining, research, telecommunication and security applications. Mining Fees. Designed to motivate the miners, the mining fees will be their chief source of revenue, once the total number of bitcoin (21 million) is mined. Block Rewards. The node that successfully finishes the Proof-of-Work algorithm first is awarded a block reward. At the moment, the reward is 12.5 block, with every 210,000 blocks halving it. The fact that BitMinter has its own mining pool, which is, by the way, one of the oldest that exists today, is what makes this platform so popular and the reason why people opt for using it. Also, there is no doubt that BitMinter is the best cross-platform Bitcoin mining software.
