Digital Mining as a Revenue Stream for Blockchain Technologies

Digital Mining as a Revenue Stream for Blockchain Technologies.

Cryptocurrency mining will be a viable growth market for Nvidia and AMD in the long term. Nvidia and AMD stock have been doing well recently. Bitcoin has also been doing well overall. 
Analysts are optimistic that cryptocurrency mining will boost demand for Nvidia and AMD chips.
Cryptocurrency miners use graphics cards from AMD and Nvidia to "mine" new coins, which can then be sold or held for future growth.

But digital mining might also be used for Blockchain technologies other than cryptocurrencies. Blockchain is being used in supply chain management and more.
