GPU-based crypto mining was once the premier way to get Bitcoin and Litecoin. As these two cryptocurrencies were not resistant to ASIC mining, GPU miners eventually had to settle for Ethereum, but with the severe crypto market decline that started in early 2018, GPU-based mining has become unprofitable, and most small-time miners plus a few big operations had to sell off all their graphics cards. This also led to the overstocks and decreased profits recorded by Nvidia and AMD in the second and third quarters.
However, the crypto world is prone to huge swings and we never know when the next surge in price would influence GPU-based mining as well. It would not hurt to be prepared for these occurrences by trying out the Quantumcloud features that are now accessible on all Asus GPUs. Asus made it easy to manage the GPU resources and setup a digital wallet in order to mine cryptocurrencies through the Quantumcloud service whenever the GPUs are not being used in games or graphics-intensive tasks. All payouts are automatically converted to US$ and sent to a PayPal or WeChat account whenever a preset threshold is met.
Now, if you own a GPU or two, you shouldn’t be expecting significant profits. Think of it as a passive income that could get you a few discounted games per month (at current ETH prices). Nevertheless, as stated before, there could be a sudden price surge and those cryptocoins you mined could be worth something at some point.
What really counts here is the security levels Asus and Quantumcloud are offering. Customer data is protected under GDPR regulations, a feature rarely seen with such mining platforms.
