The company analyst said that in less than 1.5 years, the average monthly profit of ETHEREUM production on the GPU fell from $ 150 to zero mark. The achievement of the break-even point is due not only to the growth of competition and complexity, but also a significant superiority of new antminer, as well as 70% fall in the price of cryptocurrency from December 2017.
Susquehanna says that before many launched their own mining farms for additional earnings, which contributed to a low input threshold.
