I talked to Cointerra and Butterfly Labs yesterday and they have NO plans to release sCrypt ASICs.
They said that there is NOT enough profit margin in selling them, and that there is not enough of a jump in power. They think that future GPUs especially will remain competitive IF you have cheap/free power in the coming year. One gentleman said AMD has caught on a little and their next generation premier card will hash at like 1,500K/h+++.
They said they thought eventually sCrypt mining would be taken over by ASICs but it is not going to be anything like BTC.
They said for them the margins on the hardware are not high enough compared to BTC.
That gives you an idea how much money these guys must be making on selling BTC ASICs.
Also both said they are continuing to review sCrypt and will move quickly if they think the environment changes. I think that creates a great opportunity for Litecoin ASIC startups - but also it means -don't worry so much about this!
That being said - someone from an unrelated company said they know for sure KnC has a sCrypt internal project ongoing and may surprise everyone. I have no idea if this was B.S. or not.* This thread contains speculation, not proven facts, just thought I would try to ease some fears people have, ALL SAID anything is subject to change. *
