Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang: Cryptocurrency is here to stay, will be an ‘important driver’ for business

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text el_class=”topfeed-summary-list”]

  • Even though Nvidia’s stock has fallen under pressure for the chipmaker’s ties to cryptocurrency mining, Nvidia founder, President and CEO Jensen Huang doesn’t expect the crypto craze to die down anytime soon.
  • Huang admitted that Nvidia’s processors were the perfect vessels for employing the capabilities needed to mine cryptocurrencies like bitcoin.
  • The reason why cryptocurrency became such a popular thing on top of our GPUs is our GPUs is the world’s largest installed base of distributed supercomputing, Huang explained.
  • However, even with the crypto craze fueling GPU demand, Huang emphasized that it’s far from being a growth driver for Nvidia.
  • Gaming is a much bigger business, data center is a much bigger business, our professional graphics is a much bigger business and, of course, in the future, everything that moves will be autonomous and we’ll have autonomous capabilities and that’s going to be a much bigger market, Huang said.
