Ethereum mining is no longer profitable claims Susquehanna International Group. The global trading and technology firm announced in a report that the profits from GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) mining of Ethereum have fallen to approx zero. The analyst for the company said that as the price of ethereum has fallen down, the mining is no longer profitable and instead an expense.

As the price started to experience a bullish momentum, in April the profits fell up to $30 a month. But now, as the price of Ethereum has fallen below $200, the mining of ETH is no longer profitable and may also prove to be an expense rather than an income if the price keeps falling.
