No one accept Crypto for GPU bro. No One!
People are buying with the same coin you are using.

PS. Where is the quote? lol
I bought a 1070Ti/8700K/RAM/motherboard all with Bitcoin, and in a shithole country where crypto is useless almost everywhere.

Did I mention all that Bitcoin came from a few nights of "mining" with my HD4850 just to see what the hell happens in 2012 or so? Since back then it meant pennies, I just said meh, and stopped - probably my biggest regret of 2107 lol.

But in the end, these nights of mining resulted in some decent components so it's all fine. Good thing I coincidentally felt like checking the old wallet just as the BTC was hitting 16-17K USD.

the multi-profile rule.
A vendor account doesn't count as personal forum account. Rather he did the right thing, contacted me, asked if he could create a new account, to ensure his posts don't reflect back on TT for which he doesn't work for anymore.

Send me a PM if you want to discuss this further.
