A Better Way to Buy Bitcoins - Introduction to Bitcoin Forward
Introducing Bitcoin forward
If you intend to hold your bitcoins for at least 6 months, then buying bitcoin forward contracts directly from the mine may be just what you are looking for. Bitcoin forwards are similar to gold deferred-delivery purchase agreements, which have been used to finance precious metals and gemstone mines large and small for hundreds of years. Some of the largest Asian miners use Bitcoin forward contracts to finance equipment purchases. This may have helped contribute to their present domination of the Bitcoin mining industry.
Bitcoin forward purchases are now available in the USA.

What is a forward contract?
Forward Contract as defined by the CFTC: Is a cash transaction common in many industries, including commodities such as Gold, Gems Stones, Farmer’s production or Oil and Gas. Whereas a buyer and seller agree upon delivery of a specific quantity of goods at a specified price for delivery at a future date. Terms may be more “personalized” than is the case with standardized futures contracts (i.e., delivery time and amount are as determined between buyer and seller). A price may be agreed upon in advance or there may be agreement that the price will be determined at the time of delivery. (Reference; www.cftc.gov/ConsumerProtection/EducationCenter/CFTCGlossary/glossary_f)
What is the discount rate?
The current discount rate ranges between 10% and 20% below the spot price as established on the US-based exchange (GDAX) owned and operated by Coinbase Inc. www.coinbase.com at the time of purchase.
How can we afford to offer you bitcoins at such a large discount?
A simple mathematical formula is used by all Bitcoin miners to extrapolate the cost of producing each newly minted Bitcoin. Based upon the network hash rate, cost of mining equipment, and the electricity used in the "mining" process, we know how much it costs to produce each bitcoin. As such, we only sell a fraction of our projected overall Bitcoin production, which is then held in an offline cold storage wallet off the Blockchain until customer payments are due. A percentage of the remaining bitcoins are sold, in order to cover our capital costs for hosting and the electricity to run our mining equipment.
