Technical Analysis of ETH/USD for August 19, 2021

Crypto Industry News:

The team behind the NBMiner mining software says it has partially broken Nvidia's anti-mining restraints.

In June, Nvidia implemented an algorithm called Lite Hash Rate (LHR) on all RTX 30 series graphics cards in an attempt to limit cryptocurrency mining. The limiter works both at the BIOS level and at the driver level, detecting the mining algorithms to then drastically reduce the mining power by up to 50% of the original capacity.

At the time, the company claimed that miners were disrupting its supply chain, consequently increasing the prices of graphics cards due to low supply. Nvidia has prioritize its gamer user base, stating that "this extra step will provide gamers around the world with more GeForce cards at better prices."

The latest version of NBMiner reportedly was able to bypass restrictions and boost the mining power of these graphics cards by up to 70%. The update is available on both Windows and Linux terminals. Although the software is free to download, miners must pay the team a development fee of 1% to 3% of the mining revenues.

The NB team has been developing methods to improve the performance of graphics cards for years and has promised to develop further improvements in the future.
