Then maybe gamers should stop calling for mining to be banned or for it to be classified as a mental illness, both of which happen regularly on any story mentioning crypto on these forums.You don't game on a mining rig 24/7, some of us just spend 2 hours a day on a PC with a single card. Don't you ever compare the two.
You seem to think we are angry at people who use their PC at home to mine. I don't mind that, my beef is with all the people who get many GPUs and leave others without a chance to get one.
It's sad because I also disagree with GPU mining farms - I think if you have that kind of money that you want to invest in mining, you should either a) get an ASIC, or b) just buy the crypto outright and stake it because the returns are better, and mining farms also infringe on the decentralization ethos of crypto in the first place. That said, calling for government to swoop in and ban mining infringes even worse, especially as government regularly uses a sledgehammer to perform brain surgery, and casual miners could very easily get swept up in it.
