ASIC vs GPU Mining Profitability: What’s the Best Hardware?

The era of cryptocurrencies started with the release of the bitcoin white paper in 2009.  With the crypto, came cryptocurrency mining and miners whose sole duty it is to add accurate blocks of transactions to the blockchain. To mine cryptocurrency, powerful computers have to be used.

Initially, Central Processing Units (CPU) were used. However, they had to be replaced with Graphics Processing Units (GPU) and Application-Specific Integrated Circuits (ASICs). Most miners are torn between which mining hardware to use. There is a battle of supremacy, ASIC vs GPU mining. This review will reveal their pros, cons, and profitability of the ASICs and GPU.
