To be precise, I won't quit immediately.

I'll quit once my current 4670K + 970 somehow breaks down.

Unless governments and banks make concerted efforts to devalue cryptocurrencies(like China sorta already did), this abnormal price inflation won't end. And they need to: cryptos as a currency is hard to trace, and organized crimes along with wealthy individuals running away from taxes are parking their wealth in these cryptos and using it to carry out illegal activities.

...But I guess they haven't because the people in power also has interest in it for their own gains.

I wished that the whole thing would just crash, but what happened after that in the past year is just the cryptos regaining and exceeding their value pre-crash because more and more people are starting to speculate.

I for one don't want to have to endure 2-3x price inflation just to be able to play videogames the way I do now.

I guess the only thing that can save my hobby is some sort of miracle(or a calamity for the crypto-speculators).

I wonder where you learned about crytocurrency. The concept of a blockchain is an open ledger shared by everyone so that every transaction ever made can be publicly traced. Quite the opposite of being untraceable.

But cryptocurrency doesn't represent any kind of value other than made-up numbers that everyone agrees on, right? You could say the same thing about "normal" currencies, but they at least have a country's entire government standing behind it with "full faith and credit" etc. And even then you can have massive inflation. I don't see how cryptocurrencies continue to rise in value especially when people in China are now getting into it, won't it increase supply so much it will cause massive inflation? And then you have all the different copycat currencies coming out, it's getting silly. I really feel like we're getting into pets.com territory now.
i wanna walk out into the night

Why not just invest the money you were going to use on parts into a steadily increasing cryptocurrency, then cash out when you have enough for the inflation?

That's true for the earliest crypto's that were made simply as a store of value. That isn't the case these days. Investing in cryptocurrency is the same as investing in a startup tech company using the blockchain concept. When a new coin is made, their team members are disclosed along with their goals, development timeline and distribution of coins. The value of a coin is how much people are willing to pay for them, but it represents how many people believe in the project. The value of their coins rise as they reach development milestones, gain business partners and adoption by businesses around the world. Many coins these days will also pay out dividends regularly to coin holders.
tldr: It's like a stock market and cryptocurrency have value the same as shares.
