A threefold increase
Nurettin Erzen, a founding partner of Incehesap.com, said: “The Bitcoin and bitcoin mining trend, which we encountered in the last months of 2017, came back to the agenda with the October of last year.”
“Of course, the serious increase in the prices of digital currencies had a significant effect on this movement. We have been following the interest in high-performance graphics cards, which have been of great importance in Bitcoin mining for a while. Pandemic, November campaigns, and finally, the bitcoin boom caused the demand for graphics cards in the market to exceed supply. We anticipate that the interest in graphics cards will continue to increase in the upcoming period.”
