There are approximately 2.2 billion gamers in the world. Out of the estimated 7.6 billion people living on earth, as of July 2018, that means almost a third of people on this planet are gamers. Out of those 2.2 billion gamers, 1.2 billion of those who play games are playing games on a PC.
When looking at these PC gamers’ computers, even a conservative estimate would show that a good percentage of them have setups that have the potential to handle cryptocurrency mining. One of the most important parts of any PC gamer’s set up is the graphics card. It is what gamers spend most of their money on if they are building their own gaming PC. It is also what someone would invest most of their money in if they were setting up a cryptocurrency mining machine from scratch. The graphics card is what generates the hash power, and so anyone who wants a good return on their investment will want to put the most money possible into their graphics card. They also need a good power supply and a motherboard with a minimum of 3 slots. A lot of PC gamers have a rig that already looks just like that.
This all means that there are easily hundreds of millions of gamers out there with PCs that are ready to mine cryptocurrency.
Not every gamer has a setup that can handle cryptocurrency though, and there are some who are a lot more casual than others. To get a sense, though, of just how significant the market is for Gaimin, here are some statistics:
League of Legends is one of the most popular PC video games in the world. Every single day there are 27 million people, on average, who play League of Legends, every month there are 67 million players. To put that in perspective, there are only 20 countries in the world with a population larger than 67 million out of a total 233. It would be as if the entirety of the United Kingdom logged onto their computer to play one single game a month. That is a lot of PC power.
Titles like PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, which is a game that can be played on either a computer, the Xbox, or a mobile device, have a significantly higher daily active user number – 87 million, though only a fraction of these play on a computer but those who do, like with League of Legends, will have a machine that is optimized for mining cryptocurrency.
When taken into consideration that these are just single games and that on Steam there are 14,000+ games alone, it goes to show just how many gamers there are out there and how wide-reaching the audience for a product like the Gaimin application is.
