The first batch of Antminers for the L3+/S9/D3 was $2600. and $3500 is fair market value considering you can mine $2000-$4000 worth of Dash in the first month with the D3.
Your not going to get one under $3500 when there is so few of them made and there is such an insanely high demand.
but be careful!
Really the only super profitable Antminers are the ones release in the first september batch. the difficulty is sure to spike for the october/november batches where you risk not getting much profit and if you get yours in late november/december you may struggle to get your ROI depending on what you paid.
just look at the difficulty spike on the D3 already just from bitmain doing their antmining on the D3’s before shipping them out. enormous spike.
I have looked into it extensively and couldnt get a september one for a decent price… id say value wise id feel comfortable paying:
$5000-$6000 for a September D3
$2000-$3000 for aOctober D3
I would NOT buy a november D3 until november when i know the profit margins
$3000-$4000 for a september L3+
$2000-$3000 for a october L3+
I would NOT buy a november L3 until i know the profit margins
