Different companies that manufacture computer hardware and electronic components have launched campaigns to offer their users, a kind of “passive” mining that will allow them to make profits in cryptocurrencies with very little effort.
The decision is basically due to the resounding fall in the prices of the main digital currencies, which have hit hard the assets of these companies.
Given this reality, the Taiwanese company Asus, has decided to take action on the matter, specifying an alliance with Quantumcloud to develop a software that allows users of its gaming equipment, to mine cryptocurrencies while our GPU is at rest.
To date the Asian technology giant has not offered details of how this tool will work and they have not explained which cryptocurrencies can be mined through it.
Although the Quantumcloud website ensures that users of their application “will not get rich quickly,” they argue if they can get some money while the computer’s GPU is in sleep mode.
Different specialists in the field believe that this initiative will not have any kind of benefits for companies, since whatever is collected, in their opinion, will be insignificant given the large losses recorded in 2018.
This Asus initiative would join modalities such as mining bitcoins and ethereum with a computer using “Minergate” that does not require special equipment or high computer skills and in addition, many describe the experience as a “fun” experiment.
Although this type of mining is not at all profitable, it is very important to know that companies are concerned and working to keep the issue of cryptocurrencies afloat, which could give a long life to these digital assets that today are suffering a losing streak.
