The new cryptocurrency mining trend is unquestionably agitating the PC Gaming community. ZOTAC just got their ass handed back to them. On social media, ZOTAC USA posted a photo with a mining farm of ZOTAC cards; with the text An army of #ZOTACGAMING GPU's hungry for coin!
As anybody with a little sense could have anticipated; that tweet did not sit well see ... many gamers are paying double the price for a graphics card these days (if they even can get a hold of one) due to, amongst others, cryptocurrency mining. It seems ZOTAC grew a soft spot for miners, as well .. each card sold is a card sold, right?
Once the tweet got posted, ZOTAC received an avalanche of criticism for evangelizing cryptocurrency mining. Shortly thereafter, the tweet was removed.
