Remember that people buy GPUs for mining Bitcoins?

If you don’t, let me remind you something that was said during my presentation:
Prices of Graphic Processing Units (the devices which allow gamers to process video games on their PCs and consoles) jumped sharply last year due to their great processing power for mining bitcoins (=the process by which transactions are verified and added to the public ledger, known as the block chain, and also the means through which new bitcoin are released).

So now, have a look on this one:
