It has no context and answers nothing. For the few that answer legitimately, they never specify what cards they have so perhaps they could be right, or perhaps they’re idiots just saying another coin that may be within 30% profitability when Eth won’t even drop in profitability that much. Or they just see people say RVN and monkey see monkey do. There will be a big difference between someone using an RTX 2060/2080 (which miners shouldn’t really be using unless it was the only thing you could get or had it from gaming) and an RTX 3070/3080. Aug 4th won’t change a thing for basically all 30 series, 1660super, rx 5700, and a bunch of other cards.
Also there’s the fact that we have no clue what prices will do in the next month because Ethereum could rally huge in relation to other coins.
A bunch of RTX 20 series on Nicehash or people mining on their own will likely get switched over to mine something else which will push profitability down for everything else along with Ethereum. If Ethereum profitability has like 10-20% to drop still after EIP 1559 from current levels, everything else will drop 5-15%.
Edit: This was based on EIP 1559 for what they’ll switch to. For those asking for after Proof of Stake what they’ll switch to, you’re talking about something that’s maybe 8 months off or more so noone has a freaking clue. Not to mention this is asked so damn often.
