Down -77% on Crypto Mining Processors

The Nvidia crypto mining processors' revenue dived from $105 million to $24 million. In May 2021, Nvidia announced that all its GPUs have software installed that prevents them from being utilized for  crypto mining  (a hash rate reduction).

Instead, Nvidia offered cryptocurrency miners dedicated mining processors.

Some, are suggesting that the market is leaning more towards Proof of Stake as opposed to Proof of Work, as such the demand for such processors is declining. However, minting Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) may require the processors.

Furthermore, Intel is entering the cryptocurrency mining sector with its new chip. It claims the mining chip is 1,000 times faster than the standard chips for SHA-256 in today's market. The new chip will be introduced at the International Solid State Circuit Conference (ISSCC) in February.
