Due to halving, the old miners of the network seem to surrender and face competition from the new miners. The current price is around the breakeven cost, facing issues with profitability. However, if there have been any new investors in this duration, they would be facing a lack of issues covering their capital. The current volatility and lack of bullish move in the recent future will lead the miners to face ultimate losses.
