Miners attract revealingly dressed teenage girls to sell used video cards

Published

on

After the rates of major cryptocurrencies dropped significantly in May-June, many miners began to get rid of their once-demanded equipment – video cards and ASIC systems. And to attract more attention, they use fairly openly dressed teenage girls.

The idea is not new, girls-promoters in the same outfits in China or Taiwan very often accompany official product launches, but then we are talking about new and guaranteed working devices, and in this case miners sell not just used video cards, but even in in some cases – damaged or inoperative. Girls distract the attention of buyers, they do not specify the properties of the goods before buying – and as a result, the damaged video card is sold at the price of a workable, albeit used one. In some cases, a girl acts as a seller of a video card, although in fact she only poses for a photo, and no more. The buyer may think that if the video card in the girl’s computer worked, then only in some games, but in fact, this is how 3D cards are sold, which worked hard for miners.

In general, these stories are nothing new, but they serve as another example of the fact that making an expensive purchase (and now, frankly, there are no cheap video cards in the AMD Navi and Nvidia Ampere lines), you need to carefully study all the data of the seller and the product , and not be distracted by bright photos.
