ASUS announced that it has partnered with QuantumCloud in order to create a software that permits gamers to mine cryptocurrencies with the end of the idle GPU power without deviating from the market focus of the company affecting their products performance.
This decision was not made in order to diversify but to create for miners, a product line. ASUS is yet to express a clear interest in this. AMD (a tech giant) is one company that has shown great interest in the engagement’s distribution and promotion majorly geared towards crypto mining.
In 2018, AMD announced several partnerships with seven major tech companies so as to develop a line of mining rigs having different characteristics.
Another CPU manufacturers, Nvidia experienced a 20% drop in value after the fall of the cryptocurrency markets that led to a reduction in the sales of its mining products. We are yet to know the full details of the agreement and what products they want to offer.
The fact is that QuantumCloud software will be making it possible for players to power cloud-based miners which the blockchain company oversees.
Up till now, neither QuantumCloud nor ASUS have disclosed what Cryptos will be minable or how much percentage will be gained by each player after making use of the software.
ASUS however, has called every one after it stated that the whole process is in line with GDPR regulations which ensures that users’ data are kept private.
Importantly, this is not to promote the idea of mining as being profitable but to generate some “beer money”.
QuantumCloud in a bid to clarify this sent a message to its potential clients: “An example of a typical scenario would be a gaming PC with a GTX 1070. This system could generate more than 20000 Quantum dots every day, which would result in approximately USD$10 deposited in your account over the course of a month. You won’t get rich quick, but you can earn some easy money with your idle GPUs. So, what are you waiting for?”
