Bitcoin Soared to an All-Time High. So Why Aren't Miners Blasting Off, Too?

Bitcoin soared after the last halving in May 2020, and miners joined in. At the time, there weren’t many large-scale miners.

On top of that, the difficulty of mining a block has also risen to an all-time high, which will make things even tougher post-halving.
