PS4 Crypto Farm Actually Mining FIFA Cards, Not Bitcoin – IGN Daily Fix

IGN published this video item, entitled “PS4 Crypto Farm Actually Mining FIFA Cards, Not Bitcoin – IGN Daily Fix” – below is their description.

In today’s episode, thousands of PS4’s that were seized in a crypto mining scheme weren’t actually mining for cryptocurrency. Well, not all of them, anyway. They were actually used to mine for…FIFA Ultimate Team cards? Guess that’s the new currency of the future. A recent Bloomberg reported stated that the new Switch OLED models cost only $10 more to manufacture compared to the older models, and Nintendo has come out denying those claims. While they didn’t specify how much it costs to make a Switch OLED model, it’s still obvious Nintendo is going to make a profit, as they have been on ever console sold since they’ve been making game consoles. Oh, and they also denied there’s a new Switch in development. But then again, they also denied they were working on a Switch with an OLED screen…so… Anyway, speaking of Nintendo, a super-rare GBA e-Reader card (remember those?) is up for auction, and it’ll set you back almost five figures (as of this publishing). The cards were part of a giveaway at E3 2002, and were all supposedly destroyed. One made it through and in relatively good condition, and can be yours if you want to head on over to eBay and drop a bid. What’s the rarest video game memorabilia you own? Let us know in the comments. It’s your Daily Fix!
