2018 has become a very busy year for both the cryptocurrency market and the main tool for their production – video cards. The bitcoin exchange rate in late 2017 — early 2018 reached almost 20 thousand dollars, and the creation of a farm for the production of crypto-currencies seemed to be the most profitable investment. Investors have created a multi-storey mining farm of hundreds of thousands of graphics cards, thereby inflating the demand and price to abnormal values. The most marketable video cards for mining were bought from manufacturers for months ahead, thereby creating a deficit in the user market.
Starting from January 2018 to the present time, the bitcoin rate is steadily declining, making the crypto business unprofitable and reducing the demand for video cards. According to Jon Peddie Research, since the beginning of 2018, the volume of sold graphics cards fell by 16%. Moreover, the decline in demand provokes not only the refusal of miners from the purchase of new equipment, but also getting rid of unprofitable graphics cards, which massively enter the secondary market at ultra-low prices. Many undemanding players will be interested in AMD Radeon RX570-580 4gb or GTX 1060 3gb, which will be relevant for another 2-3 years.
