As you can see, cryptocurrency mining looks very decent compared to the most popular key types of investments. Why so? There are some fundamental economic reasons for this, which differ in each cryptocurrency. When talking about Bitcoin, its nature is a deflationary model that is implemented and protected by the code and consensus of millions of devices working around the world. Every 4 years, a "halving" occurs in the Bitcoin network = a 2-fold reduction in the reward to miners for 1 generated block. The halving conditions are clearly written in the blockchain and have not changed since the creation of Bitcoin. Thus, it is logical that at the same cost of electricity, the cost of 1 coin will increase in one way or another (since electricity in the world is not particularly cheap). And naturally, you will not want to sell your hard-earned Bitcoin below the cost of mining (below is the graph of the dependence of the exchange rate on the average cost of mining). Thus, taking into account the halving and taking into account the increase in complexity, it becomes more and more difficult to mine coins, which is expressed in the fact that every year there are fewer and fewer coins per unit of time for 1Th/s. AND IT'S WONDERFUL! Because the demand for bitcoin as a method of safe transfers of money between countries in almost any amount, and as a means of investment — over time, for 10 years now, is only growing. And at the same time, Bitcoin still hasn't reached its full potential - after all, according to the most optimistic estimates, only about 1% of people in the world own Bitcoin in the amount of more than $1. WHAT TYPICALLY HAPPENS IN THE LONG TERM WITH A RESOURCE THAT EVERYONE WANTS, THAT IS HARD TO GET NOW AND IS GUARANTEED TO BE EVEN HARDER TO GET IN THE FUTURE? :) He is growing. A striking example is gold. That is why bitcoin is also called "Digital gold" - the gold of the new digital world.
