Well you can debate on this because it takes very much time to mine bitcoin with low end gear and if it would be profitable enough for you with time and power cost.
Well if it should be the time to mine now will probl be the most profitable for anyone since the miner fees are very high now that the price is waaaaay up.
No matter the price of bitcoin the miner fee will always be the same also why it gets more expensive to send your bitcoin so sending $4 could cost you $10 in all together with the mining fees.
Truly Bitcoins price is only really good for miners and people who invested at a very very low price and made way over $100 from their investment. People buying now will not really get much unless they buy something that cost between $50 – $100+ or its just an expensive.
I know this is about if its time to mine bitcoin, but i had to point out with this post how insane and stupid it becomes for people who is looking to use it as a payment and mass adoption since there is way cheaper solutions like ETH and LTC that is way faster transfer and waaay cheaper and with ETH coming with the next update that will make mining better for low end gear compared to bitcoin.
