Like I've been saying, the expectation is when the money printer gets turned back on, crypto in general will surge to the point that there will be very profitable PoW coins. Enough to outpace the miners joining in.This has nothing to do with the Market or Even bitcoin coming back up. They most likely will.
But that won't make coin mining profitable again, unless a large amount of GPUs permanently leave the mining game.
The problem is there's no guarantee that this will happen any time soon. And it may be further out than I had thought.
