Speaking to The Guardian, Nvidia Chief Technology Officer Micheal Kagan said that the processing power of the company's GPUs should be used for tasks more worthwhile than mining crypto, such as powering AI-based technologies like ChatGPT.

 

"All this crypto stuff, it needed parallel processing, and [Nvidia] is the best, so people just programmed it to use for this purpose. They bought a lot of stuff, and then eventually it collapsed, because it doesn't bring anything useful for society. AI does," Kagan told the Guardian.

They sure weren't saying that 3 years ago when they were able to put up the prices of their GPUs by 50% and now they've kept them there.

Yup. This basically says "Crypto is how we started price gouging the market, but that wasn't sustainable for us so now we are saying AI is the reason we can overcharge people."

 

That said, at least AI is useful unlike crypto.

"We've made any profit we can off of Crypto so it's now dead to us, unless sometime in the future we can profit off of it again." - Nvidia, probably.

Hey now, how am I going to get paid by Prigozhin to troll the comments sections of news websites/FB/etc and hide it without crypto?
