    @ZTR already posted some screenshots of GTX 1060 (in eBay) for ~90-100$ in the whatsapp group.

    Some cases are always there but I doubt people here buying 35k cards from olx on a large scale.Also if demand for mining decreases significantly then prices on shopping sites too will drop accordingly which again makes buying used cards a less attractive option.

    Nvidia and AMD do not "make" the chips. TSMC and GlobalFoundries do. And they have a fixed throughput. Making another plant would also require more engineers and you don't get such skilled engineers out of thin air.

    What? Nooo
    Nvidia and AMD are not taking advantage of this, its just simple demand & supply cycle of economy.
    Though the Sales of AMD & Nvidia have increased a lot due to Cryptocurrency. but their main goal is to provide gaming experience to all gamers world-wide which is not happening right now. and there might be a fear that PC gaming will die eventually (ideal situation) and people will shift to console gaming.
