I've started thinking about this once my RMA'd 2080 Ti comes in. I've avoided crypto because I still think it's a hype train, but if I already have the components for it and power's relatively cheap in AB, might as well make some money off people that are full blown drinking the kool-aid.I still game every night. You can probably also find me ranting on the forums here about how bullshit crypto is. I still think its bullshit. Not one proof of concept YET exists of an actual legitimate currency 'replacement' And they're still talking about "crypto 2.0" two years after they said it would be ready. Now they're talking about it again...and saying it'll be out in another 2 years.
But that doesnt mean I'm not going to use my downtime with my GPU not in use to take someones money. I've mined (and cashed out) almost $1000 since Christmas.
The problem isnt mining. Its mining farms like this one, and more directly, the overlap of a product stack.
