Data story links

My data story was about the rise of cryptocurrency and its impact on the graphics card market. In short its because you can make money off of cryptocurrencies using graphics cards leading to a shortage.

The first of my sources that I used to explain this was a John Oliver video where he explains cryptocurrencies using comedy and simple comparisons so people can understand what they are.

I also used an article by Polygon, a journalism site specializing in video games and tech, that explained where the GPU shortage comes from and what retailers are doing about it.

One of my final resources was an article by Forbes that advises GPU owners on how to turn a profit using their graphics cards. It does a good job of explaining how people can make money off of cryptocurrencies to those who are unfamiliar with the process.
