How do you unironically solve the scalper problem? (And, by proxy, miner problem for gpus?)
This isn’t a seethe-post or sour grapes. Its a legitimate question in that this is an actual problem in the technology industry that is set to only grow worse over time.
Shortages and scalping of course happens elsewhere (see toilet paper of last year), but those are only ever temporary issues, and my example literally required legislative intervention to resolve hastily.
Nvidia played a placebo motion to ‘limit’ 3060’s for mining, but A) miners literally don’t care and will buy them anyways B) this does nothing to address scalping
