Razer (RAZFF), a Singapore-based global gaming hardware maker, has made a push into crypto with the launch of SoftMiner, the company’s new GPU mining software that rewards users with Razer Silver when their PC is idle.

According to the SoftMiner landing page, Razer Silver is a loyalty reward credit for gamers that can be redeemed Razer peripherals, digital rewards such as games, vouchers and more.

“When your computer is idle, the Razer SoftMiner desktop application utilizes your idle GPU processing power to supplement distributed network needs for the mining process. You will be rewarded with Razer Silver, which varies depending on the amount of idle time and strength of your hardware or graphics card,” Razer states.


This news comes just weeks after Taiwan-based computer giant ASUS announced that it has partnered with Quantum Cloud, a platform that allows gamers to utilize idle GPUs to earn low-maintenance income through cryptocurrency mining.

Similar to Razer, ASUS is pocketing the mined cryptocurrencies, but unlike Razer, it is providing an automated cash out via PayPal or WeChat accounts.
