Lower price correlates to lower difficulty and higher yield of the coin.
I don’t want $20,000 today when I have no XCH and everyone is mining it, so I can’t yield much.
I want $2 so no one farms it, difficulty is low, and yield is high.
I believe in Chia, so a low price NOW is good.
If you want easy money, go GPU mine. I say this as someone mining 540 mh/s on ETH. I’ll tell you this, I don’t HODL my ETH.
