After the collapse of the cryptocurrency mining industry in Vietnam, a huge amount of unnecessary used cards accumulated. The problem has reached such a scale that one of the networks decided to sell cards by weight.
The decision turned out to be successful, and the former crypto-farmers were able to improve their financial situation.
