Ether price exceeded $ 1400
On Tuesday, January 19, the ether rate, the second largest cryptocurrency by capitalization, exceeded $ 1400, updating its all-time high. The $ 1300 level was picked up on January 10th. Skew analysts believe that the new maximum is already in the “zone of visibility”. At the same time, Ryan Watkins, a researcher at the Messari analytical company, said in his Twitter account that the Ethereum network carries out daily transactions worth $ 12 billion, which is 3 billion more than Bitcoin. The volume of transactions in the altcoin blockchain shows parabolic growth, he stated.

NVIDIA is ready to resume the release of specialized GPUs for mining
Graphics card manufacturer NVIDIA allows the resumption of the release of specialized graphics chips (GPUs) focused on cryptocurrency mining. Colette Kress, executive vice president and CFO of NVIDIA, said that if demand rises to “meaningful” levels, the company could again launch CMP – GPUs with remote video outputs, making them cheaper. Currently, RTX 30 series graphics cards are popular among miners, however, according to Kress, NVIDIA no longer considers cryptocurrencies an important part of their business. It is assumed that the resumption of the release of CMP will free up graphics cards for gamers. Against the background of the next take-off of the cryptocurrency market, a shortage of video cards arose again, as it was in 2017-2018.
