  • vincent Bertucci
    vincent Bertucci Před měsícem

    also one more thing. most people won't buy a used gpu if its been mined on for 2 reasons. one. its been ran 24/7 and 2 well they are miners and they caused the gpu crash. so why the hell would i support them by giveing them a return of their investment. Thats like telling them " hey good job on buying all those gpu and causeing a god damn shortage. here have your money back on your losses so you dont learn your lesson." people if you hate miners and what they did punish them with your WALLETS, but most miners will lie and say this card was not mined on and will try to sell it at inflated cost for example on ebay a rx 580 runs you around 200 dollars luckily i got mine that was not mined on just light gaming locally for 119 dollarson ebay . i did a bench test and a burn-in test as well and it's fine. however even if i was told it was not mined with and only lightly gamed on i know it was mined with and i was lied to. how do i know? because he had 11 others the same cards for sale as well. that is a red flag. So not only are miners lieing pieces of shit they are also Greedy pieces of shit so there is literally nothing good about these ass holes.

    Germany had a power crisis where solar power outstipped demand so instead of paying for electricity you get paid by the power company to use it. This was a real advantage to mining bitcoin.

    I'd be interested to see if they can make up or reduce some of the costs associated with the higher electricity expenses.
    That would be a cool experiment is its viable. Again great video!

If power consumption per capita was limited, then most likely we would have a mass revolution to take out the globalist elite. It is disgusting what you people accept these days.
