    Probably come back in a year,and say the games can't be sold back,or the mining credits are invalid. Probably AMD will blame it on something,something.

    Re: AMD Robot Cache games marketplace enters open beta

    The mining aspect is a little dubious... will user's PCs be sat there actively running CPU-intensive block-chain calculations, when they state that 'IRON' is not actually a currency?

    Struggling to understand the value in this, not just for me, but for any group AMD might wish to target.

    What, like some other retailer tried and failed to do?
    They're doomed.

    Oh, they're definitely doomed!

    AMD obviously get something from this 'mining', even if it's just you crunching/folding numbers for their own data uses, for which you get X Iron per hour to spend within their ecosystem, kinda like in-store credit rather than actual cryptocurrency that can be spent in other places.
    It sounds a bit veiled though and dressed up as something slightly different.
