    Watch what Bitcoins do when governments around the world figure out a way to tax Bitcoin Mining and usage.

    Until they figure out how to stop the miners from buying up every card in sight or the bitcoin market completely crashes, they won't go down.
    I was reading an article about it last night. The miners are just buying anything and everything they can find. The article said they were even renting 747's to transport the cards to their mining farms, if you can believe that. 1 bitcoin is worth about $11,000 right now.
    This mining has made the prices go crazy here in the UK too. I bought my GPU just a few weeks ago and to buy it now would cost an extra 200 ($283)! I got it at the right time I guess!

    When I bought my ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1080 Ti AMP! Extreme Core, 11264 MB GDDR5X -- 829,90 € 14 November 2017

    Todays price -- 969,00 €

    Still reasonable, I guess.
