The situation of bitcoin miners
The price of bitcoin is falling and doesn’t appear to be significantly recovering any time soon. In addition, throughout the coming year, the hash rate and difficulty of bitcoin mining will both continue to rise. Bitcoin mining profits will continue to decline if the coin’s price stays the same or declines further and the hash rate rises even slightly in the upcoming year.
However, miners with cash on hand and low-cost operations have the opportunity to profit from the slump.
The bear market will present value-seeking investors with an excellent opportunity to buy cheap shares of well-run miners. The coming year will be a turning point for the North American bitcoin mining industry, distinguishing the long-term players from the mediocre operators who entered when the going was good but were unprepared for the harsh realities of a down market.
