GPUcoin official store front now open
One of the main points of GPUcoin was that there would be an official store front to buy GPUs (graphics processing unit/computer graphics cards) using the coin itself.
Now the official store front has been launched on the GPUcoin website, currently offering three different cards from AMD; a Sapphire R7 240 and Toxic R9 280x, as well as a Gigabyte R9 270. They cost from 168,000 to 2,400,00 GPUcoins each, depending on the model.
At current market value that makes the top performing card, the Sapphire Toxic R9 280x around $360 USD — about the right price for a card in this tier.
So, would you rather buy your GPU with GPUcoins? If you’ve made a purchase or are thinking about doing so, we’d love to hear about it in the comments.
