Contact with aliens prevents the mining of cryptocurrencies, said the experts

Due to non-decreasing fashion for mining bitcoins and other cryptocurrencies the probability of humanity to find “brothers on reason” is reduced, said experts of the SETI project. The case, of course, is not that hypothetical extraterrestrial civilizations may seem like a reprehensible human activity. According to scientists, in reality everything is much simpler — so miners are actively buying GPUs that they are no longer enough for professional “seekers of aliens.”

Many scientists fully admit that the Earth is not the only inhabited planet, and some hope to find alien forms of life even within the Solar system — for example, some potentially habitable satellites of Jupiter and Saturn. The probability of the existence in the more distant outer space extraterrestrial civilizations, some experts consider more skeptical, but a lot of professionals allows such a possibility is purely theoretical nor Earth nor the Sun are a unique cosmic body, and somewhere in the vast Universe could arise as the optimal conditions for the emergence of intelligent beings and our planet. However, often flying around the Internet news about the “evidence” of the existence of aliens represent the frankly pseudo-scientific texts and the authors of such “sensations” have no real relation to science

The SETI project represents one of the few exceptions. In the framework of serious scientists are looking for ways to send signals to aliens in space, and also watching not receive any messages from the “brothers in mind” earthlings. In order to conduct such research, scientists in particular, need a modern graphics processors, and more recently scientists are faced with a lack thereof. The fact that graphics cards used for mining, quickly come into disrepair, but the current (albeit not a record) the exchange rate of bitcoin is to buy them EN masse remains profitable.

Earlier, a similar problem faced by fans of computer games, which for miners are also no longer enough GPU for modern games. Last year, one of the major companies that manufacture graphics cards, even restricted their sale to owners of mining farms to highlight that gamers for the Corporation to remain in first place.
