NVIDIA says crypto profits are drying up and that is a good thing for us enthusiasts and gamers. And not drying up just a little, a whole lot of drying up is going on. On the flip side of this coin we see that TSMC, who makes a lot of NVIDIA chips, is seeing a pickup in mining ASIC orders. That all said, I would highly advise against buying used GPUs on eBay and the likes of other sites. Get your used GPU from someone in FSFT that has a good trading record. Nvidia said cryptocurrency specific revenue plunged to $18 million in the second-quarter from $289 million in the preceding quarter, and was well below the $100 million the company had expected. “We had previously anticipated cryptocurrency to be meaningful for the year, we are now projecting no contributions going forward,” Nvidia said.
