It would be cool to see a video discussing how to spot used mining hardware on eBay so that one might avoid purchasing it. My thought is that the cards being run constantly is not to conducive to longevity. I am probably overthinking it.

Man! I became aware of bitcoin and mining back when u could expect to mine a coin or two in about 3-6months depending on whether you ran a miner casually, dedicated, with cpu, gpu, and\or\including a combination of the above. And the reason I didn't? Burning out the odd hdd or system. Hindsight sucks ass. But I bet u this much for sure that a nickel to a dollar that if the Chinese are willing to run rooms with up to and over a 1000 cellphones just to create fake play store ratings for apps that they also run an office floor or three of machines dedicated to mining. Especially when it is fairly widely known that there is a city with a mall dedicated to western knock offs. It's also somehow easy to buy an item for a buck including shipping but costs twice that if not many times more to return it. Personally I could care less who is leader but more that they do what they can to do a good job of it.
Liam Hebden (10 days ago)
with the current question in mind... with mother boards being created wouldn't they then also make GPU's without the video outputs and things not required for mining and making a new platform that will then also not upset gamer's from getting their cards? being a novice gamer myself, but mostly music producer that like's to game also and now wanting to become a minor due to finding other ways to make money it just seems normal for these graphics companies to start making GPU's that are narrowed down or would that be stupid as they could sell extra things whether someone needs it or not?

mercedesbenzformula1 (13 days ago)
Crypto miners are idiots. The opportunity cost of mining is high. You would be way better off with traditional investment in stocks, bonds, realestate etc. They also make it expensive for everyone else who just wants to buy a video card for gaming and businesses like engineering firms. The whole thing is idiotic

Would buying a gpu thats been used for mining be a bad deal ? You say miners sell them, but they have been used perminently for maybe months non stop. What damage would that cause to the gpu
redstwok1123 (22 days ago)
this is why Nvidia is screwed. No way the gamers have any real interest to buy GPU at $600+ if no miners out there buying them

Well, I can tell you do not think about mining cryptocurrency. Look into doing affiliate marketing, Saving up that money and multiplying it by purchasing and reselling items. Honestly, from there you could scale it and not have to really work hard for the rest of your life. If you are going to invest into cryptocurrency wait until after you bought the new PC and slowly buy a portfolio of currency as the markets dip and rises. Never follow the hype train of incorrect information, Bitcoin was never Initialized to be currency; it was initialized to be a virtual stock so Simply treat all cryptocurrency like stock since they all follow bitcoin still.
