All cryptocurrencies will be mined (total supply)

All cryptocurrencies will be mined (total supply)
It is predicted that by 2033, all cryptocurrencies will be mined (total supply). What will mining riggers do with their machines after that?

Where did you get that statement from?  There are a couple of inaccuracies with it.  First, every cryptocurrency can have different rules - so you can never say things like "all cryptocurrencies" this or that.  Second, taking Bitcoin as example (since it is the most prominent cryptocurrency), then there will be non-zero block rewards far longer than 2033; I don't remember the exact number right now, but the "final halving" will not take place before 2100 for sure.  And third, even after that happens, miners will simply get transaction fees (as they already do today) - mind you, last year during the hype, there was already a time when transaction fees for blocks were almost as high as the block rewards!
