Oh great, new cryptocurrency gold rush could make buying a new graphics card even harder

Cryptocurrencies are digital currencies that can be ‘mined’ using a graphics card. With the value of cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum rising sharply in recent months (Bitcoin has tripled in value since October), a rush to buy up GPUs could be on the cards.
