As often happens in this crazy world, the misfortune of some is the luck and happiness of others, something that is happening with the recent fall in the value of cryptocurrencies, since the Miners of these digital currencies, as well as the resellers, stores and even GPU manufacturers are already suffering from the price reduction.

So much so, that according to several reports, such as that of the El Chapuzas Informático site, it has been seen that in various second-hand sales forums, there are cryptocurrency miners who try to sell their complete mining sets, even offering GPU boxes with accessories, in order to reach a good price.
This is due to two main reasons, since with the value of cryptocurrencies going down, GPUs for mining are definitely not being sold, leaving gamers as clients for them. In addition, with these prices of digital currencies, it is no longer profitable to mine cryptocurrencies such as Ethereum.
As an example, we can provide some data reported by HD Tecnología, where they report that in these second-hand card digital markets, GPUs are already sold well below the value suggested by the brands, reaching an average of 10% to 30 % of that price in 2 weeks, setting the standard for the United States, where, for example, eBay has seen offers of six RTX 3080 cards, for $2,500 dollars, that is, each card at only $417 dollars, a price quite far from the $699 MSRP, which we can find by doing a quick Google search.
