The ROI on 38 1080ti's on top of 4 full builds (mobo, CPU, RAM, and at least 2 PSUs) plus any misc costs is going to be measured in years.


Not necessarily. I'm assuming they'll be mining Ethereum with those cards. We know Ethereum mining is going to be ended (at least for people at home) possibly by the end of this year. Because there is a finite amount of Ethereum to mine, the price could spike big time. It's a huge risk, of course. The whole crypto bubble could burst at any moment.

And this is why there needs to be a limit. Why screw over everyone else for imaginary coins. I really REALLY want the government to step in and say "these things do not exist, they are no longer a legal form of currency"

They can make it legal, but tax the s*** out of it. And knowing the US government, they will want to so they can keep their Dollar strong.

Haven't been to Mircrocenter but recently saw a YouTuber I follow goto Fry's in Vegas and saw how the aisle was clean outside of old cards.

I didn't even know old cards would be carried... I guess if you really need some sort of GPU (HTPC?), it's an option.

Yeah, it's pretty insane, even if it isn't a problem here.

Here's some despair

Wow... are people like taking out loans or something to get into the mining scene? That's gonna hurt real bad if the market crashes 😜

Yes, they do take out loans. Unless they were around in the beginning of the cryptomining scene. Really only those people are making it rich. Who started early.

Next time quote my whole post, including the part distinguishing short-term and long-term effects

Nope, no reason to. You said something and were completely wrong.

Yet you couldn't come up with a reason for how that is wrong. Thanks for playing!

I'm not gonna go around looking for people who made those claims. Don't care enough. We've both seen it enough. You can keep pretending though if it makes you feel better!
