"Unlike Ethereum mining, which utilizes traditional graphics processing units (GPUs), Bitcoin mining relies on specialized hardware known as application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs)."
So why isn't every miner using these instead of GPUs? They certainly can't be more expensive. In fact, last I heard ASICs were among the cheapest ICs you could get.
They use gpus to mine etherium than convert to btc. ASICs cant handle the difficulty of bitcoin, so people mine other coins.
