DMG Blockchain Solutions calculated the price of bitcoin, below which the mining will become unprofitable. According to analysts of the company, the  point is at the level of $ 2400. This is reported by The Merkle.

We outline the simple math for mining bitcoin on an operating basis (i.e. excluding capital costs), with a market assumption of 7c per kW-hr operations costs (mainly electricity). With the below calculation, the cash breakeven is currently about $2,400 – this is far below the current price. Generally capital moves around to mine the most profitable coins, which means that the market generally finds profitability equilibrium among mined coins in the long run.

 Every day the bitcoin network generates about 2100 coins. The DMG calculated that the earnings for 1 PH / s is 0.084 BTC. If the price of electricity does not exceed the specified 7 cents, and the bitcoine rate is above $ 2,400, then the mining is profitable, the company is confident.

However, it should be emphasized that in order for the model to work, it is necessary to observe ideal conditions. Moreover, not every miner can afford to produce 1 PH / s. The study, however, indicates that the major mining companies are currently confidently on their feet.

Most Crypto to Fail, Digital Currency Group CEO Says

Barry SIlbert believes Bitcoin is a king and when the mood among major investors changes, BTC is waiting for serious and aggressive growth

Barry Silbert, head of Digital Currency Group, continues to believe in Bitcoin’s great future, but questions the long-term prospects of most existing cryptocurrencies and digital tokens, saying in an interview with CNBC that they will all be worthless in the future.

I'm not a believer in the vast majority of digital tokens and believe most will go to zero. Almost every ICO was just an attempt to raise money but there was no use for the underlying token. The vast majority of what's out there will be eliminated.

At the same time, Barry Silbert is convinced that Bitcoin, despite the current “terrible schedule”, enjoys great interest from institutional investors and “won the fight for the title of digital gold”.

According to him, the new generation of investors no longer sees gold as a “safe haven”, and the money that is now in gold will be converted into cryptocurrency.

I'm convinced that whatever money is in gold is not going to stay in gold. That gets handed down to millennials. I'm highly confident a lot of that will go into bitcoin.

Barry Silbert believes that the buy and hold strategy is fully justified, although it is still difficult to say exactly when large institutional money will go into Bitcoin. Nevertheless, he noted, at the beginning of 2019, all the necessary infrastructure was already in place, listed the upcoming launch of the Fidelity custodial solution and investment opportunities such as the Bitcoin futures platform Bakkt.

When the mood among major investors changes, Bitcoin is waiting for serious and aggressive growth, Silbert added.
