Thanks for your reply, as you already know we are still in early development, and it's good if you understand the finance and manufacturing side of things before you ever think to pre-order or purchase shares in an 'IPO'. First of all Bitcoin algorithm (double SHA-256) could easily be implemented in an FPGA, it is not memory intensive at all and Bitcoin was NOT developed to be FPGA resistant. You could maximise hardware efficiency with a Bitcoin FPGA. Now lets look at it from a manufacturing point of view, at the time when Bitcoin FPGA's were released, cost-efficient powerful FPGA's were being used (Spartan-6 LX150). However, even then cost wise FPGA's are expensive, as they are really designed from prototyping. Example ModMiner Quad 900 mh/s for $1,069. The cheapest was the Bitforce BFL FPGA, 832 mh/s for $600. BFL having a lot of funding and being a somewhat big player in the community must of had connections with a limited supplier to be able to sell their product for that price, as the number of BFL FPGA's being sold was very limited in order to sell that cheap, and indeed it was. Look at the volume of ASIC's they are selling now, which is easily financially viable due to the LOW per unit cost of an ASIC (high NRE).
We had this in mind, but thought there could be a way to shortcut the FPGA implementation after actually physically doing it. But it isn't possible for the reasons i stated in my last post, and trust me, we are working with our partners who have over 150 employees, hardware and software experts in FPGA design with many years of experience (i wish i could tell you who they are, but you will have to wait a few weeks before they release official news release). That being said, now look at Litecoin, it contains not only Scrypt, but also many other algorithms, and has forcefully made some operations that cannot be made parallel. If Bitcoin FPGA's were barely profitable and high priced and only limited in quantity (they just paved the way for ASIC), what makes you think an unknown developer with no hardware experience making an IPO (which has clear fraud issues) can even compete with power/cost of a Bitcoin FPGA at the time Bitcoin FPGA's were up for sale. Which was generally even higher than 1$ per megahash. It's impossible as the Litecoin algorithm also contains SHA-256 algorithm aswell as many others including Scrypt, which ALL needs to be hashed, so Bitcoin is always going to be multitude times FPGA cost effective. We will release a proof of concept to show this and a full report, if anyone is stating they have exact FPGA hashing figures in the 2MH/s even at $5,000 (thats minimum) area that means they are in the late stages of development, and can easily show you a video/image proof of that.
On the other hand we are taking a far realistic approach specialized for the characteristics of the actual algorithm. Not only that our partners who are a great addition (most likely biggest) to the crypto-currency hardware market, which gives us access to facilities/manufacturing/economies of scale and are direct partners with companies like Texas Instruments.
I'm not bashing any competitors, i'm just being realistic from a hardware manufacturing point of view, which is the best point of view you'll get in this matter. And what to expect when certain projects fail, due to unrealistic expectations or fraud.
