Retailer Citylink began selling cryptocurrency mining equipment
The Merge, which took place in September, further collapsed the prices of mining devices and made video cards virtually illiquid goods for the digital currency mining industry. However, it is premature to say that the supply of mining devices has come to a standstill.
For example, asic miners went on sale in the Citilink retail network. The media reported that this company was the first to start selling this hardware with all the necessary documents and a guarantee.
The retailer offers to buy asics manufactured by Bitmain, which is the industry leader. The Chinese manufacturer occupies 70% of the mining equipment market.
Recall that Russia is in the top 5 countries in terms of BTC hashrate.
