Butterfly Labs Bitforce 5 GH/s Miner Video Demo
After over eight months of delays, it seems as though the Butterflylabs race to ship their Asic based Bitcoin mining computer is finally drawing to a close. Today Butterflylabs posted first ever working demo of their upcoming 5 GH/s miner unit. BitForce is a Asic miner for mining Bitcoin, produced by Butterflylabs as a small cube-shaped device that connects via USB to your computer. Check the video demonstration of miner, right after the break.
In past, BFL missed all of their deadlines and many people started to believe them as a scam. This video proves BFL to be a legitimate company building real products and not out to scam anyone.
ASICMiner, Butterfly Labs, and Avalon are only three major competitors out there. ASICMiner has a business model that is different from the others, they don’t offer any physical product. Avalon Asic miner is the only miner available in the wild, but limited availability and high prices made BFL miner a winner (only if BFL starts shipping their products). Let’s see how much time it takes to ship first Bitforce miner to general public.
