>Couldn’t be that in addition to crypto tanking that miners were aware the Eth merger was coming? That is another factor. Miners are forward looking. They don't wait until the merge happens before they dump. Many had started dumping early this year. ETH hashrate peaked in the summer. And its going down now. >Some GPUs are still not easy to find at MSRP FYI. You are talking about AIB. They are always higher than MSRP. It is mainly founder editions that stick to MSRP. But GPU sale has begun this summer. Retailers, like Amazon and BestBuy, are dropping prices online etc.
tldr; ASUS, Gigabyte, and MSI are having a difficult time trying to convince retailers and distributors to buy AMD's Radeon RX 6000 series cards for sale in the consumer segment, according to reports. AMD-exclusive AIB partners, such as Sapphire, have already officially announced a drop in prices for their premium AMD graphics cards. *This summary is auto generated by a bot and not meant to replace reading the original article.

>It was due to Nvidia wanting more profit per card. first off, I hope you realize that heir profit margins were already pretty insane, especially for AIB cards where they didn't have to manufacture that VERY expensive cooler. Second, that still isn't why the prices went up that much. They're up because people showed they'd pay 1200 dollars for a card, period.
Nvidia isn't doing anything, that's AIB partners pricing to the market. Nvidia literally did not set an MSRP for the 12GB. ​ The price changes werent a reflection of the production costs. ​ I don't even like the way Nvidia handled this the past two years but I feel like we have to at least understand why these things happened rather than just assume Nvidia is jacking up the prices. They're not, they weren't even ready for the demand in the first place. No one was.
Do you understand how GPU brands work at all? ​ Nvidia fabbed the chip, but they didnt set an MSRP. They can't' it's literally not their product they're selling. only the AIB's are selling that version. The AIB's are the only ones putting that card on the market, the price is up to each one individually as there is no standard configuration like what exists with the FE 3080 and 3080 TI Nvidia released as a first part card.
you're not wrong, but keep in mind some of my coins listed (AIB, ARG, BCN, BTM, GLT, LEAF, NYC, PTC, SXC, VIA, VTHO, XMY) were merge mined and may only be worth a few bucks. Still would like to take advantage of any opportunities regardless!
I cannot use my credit card to purchase crypto, every time I try they blocks my card from all.purchases and i have to ring them. They have advised the "algorithm " will learn that its not fraudulent and will eventually allow it but even after multiple purchases being put through on while on the phone with the agent still doesnt work. For any other purchases which are suspect i get a text message looking for authorization. But yet i can use my debit card from the same bank without issue.

Here's a quick list of banks that have been known to close/limit accounts related to crypto transactions: SEB (SWE), Nordea (FIN), Danske (DEN), Swedbank (SWE), Lloyds (UK), HSBC (UK), Bank of Ireland (IRE), AIB (IRE), Permanent TSB (IRE), Westpac (AUS), ANZ (AUS), JPMorgan Chase (US), Wells Fargo (US), Bank of America (US), US Bank (US) Keep in mind that this list was compiled mostly as a result of a quick Google search and some banks may have changed their stances on the issue already. For example, US Bank is actually starting to offer crypto custody services for their clients. However, **my personal opinion is that since these entities didn't support Bitcoin in the past, they do not deserve our support in the future**. They can backtrack all they want, truth is we don't need them. Boycott the motherfuckers is all I'll say.
Actually he literally just stepped down from everything Cosmos/ICF/Tendermint. He is starting a new project within Cosmos. Peng Zhong took over and has been great so far. "I am stepping down from AIB and the ICF to focus on the Gno language and GnoLand projects, to bring next generation smart contract programming to the Cosmos ecosystem, ultimately to create next generation commons infrastructure projects. Long live Cosmos." https://twitter.com/jaekwon/status/1360867477572493313?s=20 https://github.com/gnolang/gno/blob/master/README.md I am very curious about this one.
