“The sudden increase in cryptocurrency mining has pushed the price of graphics cards through the roof. Popular favorites of cryptocurrency miners have all doubled if not tripled in price—and that’s just when you can actually find them in stock at all.”
"Last year, according to investment analytical firm PitchBook, there were 377 deals done in the blockchain space. Already in the first two months of 2018, there were 138 completed deals. That means we’re on pace to see about 800 deals this year—more than double the amount of deals from last year.
This is going to lead to an absolute explosion in the technology."
