Looks like the next battlefield for the PC chipmakers and video card makers will be the crypto mining sector. After Sapphire and Intel announced their plan to explore the crypto mining sector, ASUS, the Taiwanese-tech giant has also announced its foray,
Asus is now letting gamers to use their idle power of graphics card when it is not in use to mine cryptocurrency and earn a decent share of profits from it. For the process, Asus has partnered with mining app provider Quantumcloud, which will allow gamers to earn passive income by allowing access to their Asus graphics cards when not being used for PC tasks. As per the partnership agreements, earnings will be paid out via PayPal or WeChat and customer’s financial data will be protected under General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Quantumcloud’s website says:
“The app uses gamers’ GPUs to collectively power cloud-based miners to – in theory, at least – generate profit, giving card owners a percentage based on the amount of power provided.”
“As part of its pledge to protect user data, Quantumcloud launched with GDPR compliance in place and does not require customers to create a unique login. Instead, customers use their existing PayPal or WeChat account to log in and collect their earnings.”
Quantumcloud stressed the fact that its software doesn’t guarantee users to make a profit through its use:
“Earning rates may change based on the performance of the cryptocurrency market and cannot be guaranteed or influenced in any way by Quantumcloud.”
