• The Merge

    Finally some good news from the block clowns:

    'Ethereum completes the "Merge," which ends mining and cuts energy use by 99.95%'

    https://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2022/09/ethereum-completes-the-merge-which-ends-mining-and-cuts-energy-use-by-99-95/

    Now we have more free GPU power for gaming, browsing bloated websites and electron apps. Web3 will be the shit ;)

    If this thing will be actually true (gotta actually inform myself more about how REALLY mining works), finally it will be the time that GPU prices becomes normal again... Well, unless scalping happens.

    You can bet your last penny scalping will happen. It's like death and taxes these days...
