I thought this was a joke but no he really does have an entire video about how you need to mine crypto before the bubble bursts.

Less than a month after that video about how mining GPUs were horribly irresponsible.

Yeah, no wonder he was too much of a coward to call out miners on that video. Absolute hypocrite.

Prices fluctuate , it happens.

I bought 2x8 GB 3200Mhz CL14 about 4 years ago for $180 USED (trident Z, no RGB). And this is not age pricing, a year before that it was down near $100.

Same kit about a year and a half ago was down to like $80.

Now itís back up. Itíll go down again. Thereís DRAM shortages due to supply issues, partially due to Covid and partially due to the Texas freeze that shut down Samsungís DRAM factory for a few days. Itíll swing like everything else.

Yeah that was due to DRAM price fixing from June 2016- Jan 2018 by Samsung, SK Hynix and Micron and theres been a class action lawsuit for it for a couple years you can sign up for.
