Cryptocurrency miners says gamers should get used to situation

Posted on Monday, March 19 2018 @ 12:50:37 CET by


In recent months, there's been a lot of bitching and moaning about the poor availability and extremely high retail pricing of the most popular video cards. Supply and demand are out of whack as cryptocurrency miners are buying up huge volumes to satisfy their need for more mining power.

Easy Crypto Hunter‘s founder and Managing Director, Josh Riddett, sat down with DigitalTrends and suggested gamers should suck it up and mine too. Riddett says he's an avid gamer too, but he points out that at today's prices, a video card can pay for itself in a year:
“I’ve spent a lot of my life gaming, I love it. I’ve made a lot of great friends in the online world. The reality of it is [though], no one rides horses when they’ve got cars,” he said. “Sometimes you’ve got to move with the times. At the end of the day, I appreciate that a graphics card will now cost you twice what it did before, I get that and it sucks, but it can also pay for itself in a year. So it’s kind of swings and roundabouts. It’s very easy to leave your computer mining overnight when you’re not using it, and effectively the graphics card will pay for itself.”
His statement is bound to create controversy, but he suggests that due to the payback time, video cards may actually be cheaper today than they were three years ago.
