Hi, Blender Artists. Sorry if I’m wrong in the category in this forum. I want to ask about bitcoin, Most people use graphics card (or GPU) and Blender (or 3d other software) to make Game, Movies, animation, etc.
I also use Blender, to make Game for PC and android.:D:D
I’m also having a project that I’m working on, creating a 3d map app for android. The app is aimed so that people will not get lost in the building we call “Pasar” in Indonesia:yes:, almost the same as the market, I use blender and unity3d.
I have no problem with the existence of bitcoin, litecoin, etc. I am also happy if the cost of server and cloud using bitcoin. Lately many people are doing Ethereum / Bitcoin Mining, get coin with a lot of transaction processing on the computer. I have no problem with that. But the problem is they use the graphics card as a transaction processor. They are not using it for blender, Render farm, medical computer. Even they changed the PCI Express x16 to be smaller (x1 / x2 I do not know). They do not use the graphics card feature completely. The result is stock runs out in the computer market for some graphics cards.
They need a graphics card to speed up the performance of processing transactions. That’s okay, no problem. I just do not understand, why use a graphics card for processing.
If most people can get a coin that way, okay no problem.
My friend and I used a graphics card with Blender to create games, animated movies, CG,
Is it possible I have less income from people using graphics card to get bitcoin?
Sorry question unrelated to blender
