For quite some time, cryptocurrency mining has been a huge industry, with many people using their powerful PCs to generate income. However, as we all know, the success was quite limited because mining became less profitable after the cryptocurrency market crashed, and Ethereum switched to the Proof-of-Stake.
Many crypto mining farm owners decided to sell their graphics cards before it was too late after they realized that mining was becoming less profitable.
This brings us to a Vietnamese crypto mining farm owner who, like others, decided to sell his Graphics Cards after mining became less profitable. However, it appears that in order to give graphics cards shine like brand new we can see him washing his mining RIGs with a garden hose before selling them.
Some miners began to get rid of video cards (GPU) after mining became much less profitable after the transition of Ethereum to the Proof-of-Stake algorithm.#ETH #Mining #NVIDIA pic.twitter.com/oUU2ak1R0S

The majority of the cards look to be Nvidia GeForce RTX series cards, which are quite hard to get your hands on a few months back. For individuals who were unable to purchase the RTX series due to prohibitively high prices, which are getting better after the cryptocurrency market crash, or unavailability, this would have been very upsetting.
A Twitter user went ahead and made fun of the owner of the Vietnamese crypto mining farm, which is hilarious because it has happened previously for mined graphics cards to be marketed as brand-new.
For sale: Nvidia cards. Like new – Lightly used. Not used for mining. Tested prior to sale. Cleaned.
