Asus allows gamers to mine cryptocurrency with their unused graphics card

If you’re a gamer and have an idle graphics card, the good news is that Taiwan-based tech giant Asus will now let you turn the number-crunching ability of your unproductive graphics card into a crypto mining rig, earning you a share of the profits.

According to the press release, Asus has partnered with Quantumcloud, a startup that provides software allowing gamers to turn their idle graphics cards to mine cryptocurrency and receive a digital payout through PayPal or WeChat.

Quantumcloud’s website explains that when the app is started, it uses some of your GPU’s power to run cloud-based miners which generate profit for the platform, some which you’ll receive based on the amount of GPU power provided.

In order to ensure the safety of customer data, Quantumcloud launched with GDPR compliance so customers are not required to create a unique login. Instead, customers use their existing PayPal or WeChat account to log in and transfer earnings.

It’s important to note, however, that Quantumcloud doesn’t guarantee that its software will make users earnings or profits. “Earning rates may change based on the performance of the cryptocurrency market and cannot be guaranteed or influenced in any way by Quantumcloud,” the release states.
