    But wait, there's more. Still got at least 6 months to go.

    1660 super's being sold for $800.

    Filled out the RMA form on my 3060. It will take approx a week for them to get around to testing it and then decide what to do.

    The card was purchased for approx. $750 in March.

    im spewing i sold two 1080 Ti's in Oct last year for $400 and $420.

    now see them going for $650-750$...... my cards cost me $1200 each in March 2017. so 4+ years on, and can sell them for well over 50% of the original investment, thats insane.

    I'M spewing I downgraded all my rigs recently off onto the forums, because the prices got high - the prices have kept going up still however as well as profitability in mining hahaha

    I did keep a handful though, but it's harsh trying to obtain any more again

    Looks like eth might have tipped over. Could always bounce hard, but y'know, many are going to be happy to take profits.

    Other markets like NASDAQ aren't exactly booming either.

    Well... This should be interesting.

    Eth peaked at ~5330 AUD a bit over a week ago

    Now approaching half that.
    Wasn't expecting it to plummet quite so hard when I made the last comment.

    May be time to buy Eth instead of just mine.

    There is anew round of bans in China for crypto and crypto related transactions.

    Ready for a round of clapped out ex-mining cards to flood wish / aliexpress / ebay? :D

    From my understanding the last ban was on individuals, this one is on actual banks. So basically they are not allowed to transact, facilitate, provide clearing services and so forth for anything crypto related.

    This China ban news is just bullshit. China banned the purchase and selling of crypto years ago. It's ok to own it however. They just reiterated their stance, and media reported it as a new thing to drive fear. It worked.
    I don't mind, I got some cheap crypto.

    I'm willing to bet the CCP did too. Some pretty decent crypto currency manipulation there, ironically driven by complaining about the vulnerability of crypto to currency manipulation.

    In a year or so when literally no one is talking about it.

    Block chain is here to stay, but who can really predict in what capacity. Eth is certainly becoming the backbone of many real products, so zero is unlikely, however, it's not hard to copy and migrate to a new chain if it becomes a limitation.

    Yeah, I was thinking if it ranges for 2-3 months, I'd put in a couple grand and forget I had it for a few years. Money I can afford to lose and don't need, but could be worth something in a few years time.
