    As far as I understand it (which is very limited) Chia only requires an SSD for the initial stage that is used for temp work which after it completes shifts over to the work (plot) stage and you can use any old HDD for that (home users no more than 2 was suggested).

    I'm guessing it's not home users using SSD's like this but dedicated outfits running large number of plots in parallel that wear out the SSD ?

    It sounds to me as if they saw the pounding the microprocessors were taking and they have invested hard in the NAND / storage industry, before releasing this nonsense to jack up demand and therefore prices..... GRRRRR.

    That is totally the case in terms of Chia mining, using the M.2 as a way to offload data really quickly into plots.

    Might be off topic
    But....I wonder how long it will be before someone that mines crypto will be murdered?, we've allready seen this in online gaming.
    I can totally see this happening soon.
