Mining when not gaming

ASUS is the latest technology giant to hop on the cryptocurrency mining bandwagon. Putting to use their idle graphic cards, ASUS gamers will be able to mine cryptocurrency and cash out their earnings through PayPal or WeChat. The company has partnered with blockchain technology provider Quantumcloud, which has developed the mining software. According to ASUS, the whole operation is GDPR-compliant, which means Quantumcloud doesn’t store any sensitive customer information. There is no mention of how much gamers can earn – and whether ASUS or Quantumcloud will keep any cut from their mining profits. In any case, gamers shouldn’t expect to make a fortune from this activity.
